Covid-19 Update

We are doing our part and help get everyone through the current dilemma. We will be consolidating some of our clinics but otherwise continue to provide urgent and emergency dental care. We will be donating our extra supplies to local hospitals to help them in their effort to better care for those affected.

To also help, we are now expanding our hours in some of our clinics from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday.  We hope these extended hours will not only better serve our patients but will help keep dental emergencies from overloading value space in emergency rooms.

Meet Your Portland, OR Dentists

Dr. Clark Brinton was the valedictorian of his OHSU graduating class in 2013. He also completed a surgical implant training course with OCO Biomedical that allows him to both place and restore tooth implants in our Portland, OR dental office. Dr. Brinton is also a member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics, and he is a certified provider of cosmetic and therapeutic BOTOX® for TMJ and head and neck pain. He is passionate about continuing his education and staying up to date on the latest dental technologies and advancements to bring his patients the highest level of care.

Dr. Paul Ortiz graduated from the OHSU School of Dentistry in 1980. He has served as an associate professor in the department of restorative dentistry at the OHSU School of Dentistry for over 30 years. When he's not taking care of patients at NE Dental Associates, Dr. Ortiz mentors dental professionals and dental students and has also been a consultant for the Portland Study Group.

A Warm and Professional Team

While you may find the dentistry your family needs in any number of dental practices around Portland, we believe that it is our team that keeps our patients coming back year after year. In addition to our unwavering commitment to clinical excellence, we also believe that patients deserve to feel at home and respected while they are with us. You will notice right away that we treat our patients like family.

We are a small, privately-owned dental practice, so you will never feel rushed or that we don't hear your needs and concerns when you visit us because we have the time to get to know you and listen to what's important to you about your dentistry. Each member of our team dedicates themselves to providing leading-edge dentistry and a comfortable and enjoyable experience at every appointment – no exceptions!

Modern Dental Technology

Both Dr. Brinton and Dr. Ortiz are passionate about continually updating their skills and the equipment we use in the office. NE Dental Associates features the most modern dental technology available today. Digital x-rays, laser dentistry, and 3-D imaging all mean more accurate and efficient dental visits for you. You will always notice new equipment being added to our Portland dental office to make your experience more comfortable.

In addition to some of the latest bells and whistles available today, our dentists value continuing education to expand their clinical skills. Our team completes additional training to bring you some advanced services that you may not find at every dental practice, such as comprehensive implant dentistry and treatment for sleep apnea. We take into consideration the impact that your dental health has on your overall health to help you achieve optimum wellness.

Family-Friendly Dentistry

You have probably noticed that many dental practices either do not treat children or can't handle the unique needs of our youngest patients. At NE Dental Associates, many of us are parents ourselves, and we love welcoming children to the practice.

The gift of a healthy and beautiful smile for your child is priceless. We believe that creating a positive outlook early on will help your little one grow into an adult with a healthy smile and excellent oral health. You will find all the dental services your son or daughter needs at our dental office to help them achieve and maintain that precious smile you look forward to seeing.

Because your oral health changes throughout your lifetime, our team adjusts your dentistry to meet your current health needs. Our patients with diabetes, those who are pregnant, and our senior patients all need customized dental care to stay healthy and active. Developing long-term relationships with our patients helps us provide better dentistry and gives us great pleasure when watching families grow.

We Are Here When You Need Us Most

Dental emergencies can cause discomfort and even be a stressful or frightening situation. The good news is that you can rest assured that when you have a skilled dental team on your side, we will handle your dental emergency promptly and efficiently so you can get the relief you need fast.

At NE Dental Associates, your dental team makes every effort to see you as soon as possible during a dental emergency. Some of the dental emergencies in Portland that we can handle are:

  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Lost or damaged crowns or fillings
  • Knocked-out (avulsed) teeth
  • Broken or cracked dentures
  • Toothaches and abscessed or infected teeth
  • Bleeding gums or soft tissue injuries

We encourage you to call us right away at (503) 506-7933 if you or your loved one is experiencing a dental emergency. We can provide same-day dentistry in some cases to get you back on your feet and comfortable again as soon as possible. 

Flexible Financial Options

With many demands on family budgets, we strive to provide outstanding dentistry at a great value. We work with many PPO insurance plans, offer financing options, and use the finest materials for dentistry, and restorations that last a long time. Simply put, we do things right the first time, and make it easy for families to avoid financial surprises.

Patients who don't have dental insurance can still get the high-quality dentistry they deserve without breaking the bank by becoming a member of our NE Dental Associates Membership Club. For an affordable monthly payment, you can have your preventive dental services covered at no additional cost to you. Members of our in-house dental plan also receive discounts on other restorative dental services and even some cosmetic procedures. There are also membership options for children, so every person in your family can receive the dental care they need and deserve.

If you are planning on completing a more complex treatment plan, be sure to ask our team about our in-house and third-party financing options. Patients who qualify can break the cost of their treatment into affordable monthly payments that easily fit into their budgets by working with CareCredit or our in-house financing plan. Contact our Portland dental office today for more details.
