Our Team

At Complete Health Dentistry of Portland, we want not only to correct existing problems but to help you understand what true health means, understand the cause of disease, its relationship to your body, and provide solutions back to health.
Prevention is our primary focus. Our team of healthcare providers will spend the time to listen and understand your needs, identify causes of disease, evaluate future risk and provide comprehensive care for you—whether you are one or one hundred years old.
