about us

We are committed to you!

 

People often feel guilty because of their teeth, or because they have not been to the dentist for awhile.  We are happy to see you no matter where you have been or what condition your mouth is in.


Our sole purpose is to help you!

Dr. Gary White DDS

Always wanting to become an artist instead of a dentist, he studied graphic design in college before his wife, a dental assistant, introduced him to the field of dentistry. While visiting the office that she worked at, he noticed the beauty and artistry in dental work and knew that this was his true calling. So he started flossing, enrolled in dental school, and in 2006 graduated from Oregon Health & Science University. Outside of work, Dr. White loves the outdoors. He enjoys running, camping, surfing, snowboarding and spending time with his beautiful wife and four crazy kids.
