Dr. Paul Ortiz and his team would like to welcome you to a wonderful dental experience! By combining advanced clinical dentistry with a fun and friendly style, Dr. Ortiz and his team will make you feel more comfortable than you ever thought possible.

Dr. Ortiz currently mentors dental professionals and dental students, and has also been a consultant for the Portland Study Group which dedicates itself to training practicing dentists in the art of comprehensive treatment.

I had a very horrible issue when a front crown fell off. I was so nervous that it wasn't going to be fixable. I don't know how he did it, but Dr Ortiz found a way to secure it back in my mouth in a very permanent way. "It won't come out" he assured me and I believe him. He took a ton of time to fashion this work-around so that the old crown works. Tell me where you would find another Dentist who would ever do this? Believe me, no where. If he can help you, he will!
I have been going to NE Dental Associates for years seeing Mary Ann for my cleanings. She is gentle and excellent as always but recently I broke a tooth and had to have a crown. I had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Ortiz for more than a general exam. Dr. Ortiz and his assistant were great and I love my new crown! Looks like my tooth. Couldn't recommend them enough!
For several years, I had no idea that I was only getting "marginal" dental care where my family had been going. Now that I go to THE BEST, I know what the difference is! Dr. Ortiz takes TRUE pride in his work. I am now getting my teeth fixed, I am feeling better, and I am discovering what it is like to be free of dental pain. Oh my gosh! My first visit, I knew I was right where I was suppose to be. How many people can you say are a real expert at what they do? Well, Dr. Ortiz is one. My family is sure of that fact.
Our family has been seeing Dr. Ortiz since he was fresh out of dental school. We feel confident in his recommendations and his skill levels. If there is a major expenditure involved, he always offers alternatives, or explains why there aren't any. We have recommended him to our friends and we are all devoted fans.
Dr. Ortiz has taken care of my teeth for years. When there's been an issue like the need for a crown he takes exquisite care to make sure it's fixed correctly. I doubt I could find a better or more caring dentist.
Dental implants are a great option for replacing missing teeth, improving chewing ability, eliminating bridges, and replacing dentures. Several implants may provide a base for a series of artificial teeth known as a fixed bridge. Implants can even be used to secure a full set of removable dentures for people who have no remaining natural teeth.
If you already have an implant that needs replacing or restoring our office uses the latest in imaging technology and techniques to restore your smile to it's very best.
Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the airway completely collapses, blocking airflow into the lungs. The harder one tries to breathe, the tighter the airway seals. This airway obstruction persists until the brain partially awakens the person, unconsciously closing the jaw and returning the tongue and throat to a normal position.
We offer effective, nonsurgical relief from sleep apnea and other sleep-related disorders—including snoring. Ask us how you can get the restful, healthy sleep you’ve been missing.
Cosmetic dentistry is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve your appearance. A beautiful, bright, healthy smile can increase self confidence and overall life satisfaction. Cosmetic dentistry can encompass things such as tooth-colored fillings, dental implants, or crowns. We have many options, so please call us for a free cosmetic consultation.
Protect and keep badly decayed or fractured teeth while maintaining a beautiful smile. Made to perfectly match the shape and shade of your other teeth, they’re durable, strong, and undetectable.
Crowns should be placed before the tooth is so decayed that it may fracture. This can often help prevent the expense of root canal therapy in the future. If a tooth is too damaged to have a crown applied, a porcelain bridge may be a good alternative.
From toddlers to the elderly, our skilled dental team is familiar with the unique needs of every patient, no matter their age. Our goal is to help them develop great oral habits that will last them a lifetime.

If you have a cracked, chipped, infected, or damaged tooth, please give us a call to make an appointment. Crowns, veneers, tooth-colored porcelain fillings, and bonding are common techniques for dental restoration. We will recommend the best option for your case to restore your tooth to its full functionality and give you the beautiful smile you deserve.
Veneers and laminates are very thin porcelain pieces that are custom made to adhere directly to the front of teeth without grinding or shaving. Transform your smile without drilling on your natural teeth!
In the hands of a highly skilled dentist, porcelain laminates and veneers can provide you with an incredibly natural, beautiful smile. They are virtually undetectable and can dramatically improve your appearance. They are durable and long-lasting when compared to other cosmetic treatments.
Do you wear old dentures or have a mouthful of missing or failing teeth? Eat what you want again, smile, laugh, and look and feel years younger with our expert-crafted dentures and partial dentures. If you have natural teeth in place, you can't wear a full-set of dentures, so we recommend partial dentures. Full dentures can be made to replace all of your teeth in the event that this is necessary. Dentures replace teeth in a non-invasive way without the need for surgery.
If you have a toothache or get in an accident, please give us a call! We have extended hours and weekend availability to help you!
The emergency room will not treat tooth damage, so if you have a dental emergency, please give us a call.
According to the American Dental Association, the number one cause for tooth damage is playing sports - even a casual backyard game can be dangerous. Protect yourself and your smile with a mouth guard.
Many everyday things like coffee, tea and wine can significantly dull teeth. Smile-whitening enables us to significantly brighten your smile for that dazzling white smile you deserve.
Plastic whitening trays will be made from models of your teeth. You will then place a special whitening gel in each tray and wear the trays in your mouth for several hours per day. (Many patients wear their trays after dinner and before bed.) A significant change in tooth color is usually seen in just four to six weeks.
