We believe in giving back

Our practice has called Salem home for 60 years. During that time, we’ve done a lot to give back to the community, including:

  • Making donations to Doernbecher Children’s Hospital
  • Volunteering with Dental Van
  • Educating local children about their dental health

For every family member or friend you refer to our practice, we’ll donate $1 to Doernbecher for cancer research.

We’re working to make all of Oregon healthy and happy — one smile at a time!
