We are an advocate for your general health, as well as an integral part of your medical team. Through continuing education, treatment and the promotion of good oral health, we will be a positive force in your life and community. We will work with diligence, compassion, and a sense of gratitude for our jobs, our patients, and each other.
At Ochoco Family Dental we are interested in your health as a whole, not just your oral health. Our goal is to consider your entire well-being when creating a dental treatment plan for you.
Dental health affects a person’s physical and emotional condition. Preventative dental care, including routine cleaning and exams, help identify issues that may arise and maintain a constant connection between you and your dentist. That connection allows us to be proactive in recognizing and treating such things as gum disease, which leads to tooth loss.
We take pride in the fact that we research new ideas and techniques, combining those with proven traditional methods and materials, creating state-of-the art dentistry.

“Are you accepting new patients?”
Yes, we are. However, we require a comprehensive exam with appropriate radiographs and records as an initial visit. If you are looking for a quick fix only and are not a patient of record with our office, we may not be the practice for you.
“Do you accept dental insurance?”
We accept all dental insurances, but we are not a “preferred provider” for all. This means you may be responsible for a larger percentage of the bill if we are not on your preferred provider list.
“What can I expect on my first visit?”
The first visit is an introductory of yourself to us and us to you. It is a mutual appreciation of life’s story in respect to oral health. We want to know why you have come to see us and what your expectations are. The exam will start with a review of medical and dental history. It will continue with an evaluation of the structures inside and outside the mouth. As appropriate, we will also clean your teeth and review plans for any necessary dental restorations.
