Our Practice

Dr Persons attended dental school at Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland.  He graduated in 1984. He worked in severaloffice for the first year.  He started his own practice on 43 Ave and Peoria. It was a new building so everything was from scratch.  We handed out fliers in the neighborhood and sent other fliers to get a start.  His wife Valorie did the front office duties as well as assisting Dr Persons.  The back room was arranged with toys and things to occupy the 2 children at the time. A lot of our patients often remind us of those days with fond memories of being with us for so long.  We have been at this location, on 51 Ave south of Olive, in Glendale, now for 29 years and one of  those children in the back room has been our receptionis, assistant and now is our hygienist.  It is truely a "family practice".

We enjoy the patients we have had since opening our doors over 30 years ago and the new ones we have gained along the way.  Dr Persons loves his work and his patients and loves to talk and get to know them on a personal basis.

We look forward to meeting you as a  new patient into our Family oriented practice.

We have some wonderful employees that have been here for years and love and know the patients. Our new hygienist Michelle is also a family person and we look forward to her addition.

We are a dental practice devoted to restoring and enhancing the natural beauty of your smile using conservative, state-of-the-art procedures that will result in beautiful, long lasting smiles!

High Standards

A standard of excellence in personalized dental care enables us to provide the quality dental services our patients deserve.  We provide comprehensive treatment planning and use restorative and cosmetic dentistry to achieve your optimal dental health.  Should a dental emergency occur, we make every effort to see and care for you as soon as possible.

Education & Prevention

As a practice, we are true believers that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health.  We strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”.  That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary.  We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease.  Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned about your health.  A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.

Uncompromising Safety

Infection control in our office is also very important to us.  To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

Training & Expertise

As your dental health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians.  We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile healthy.  To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continual education and learning.  We attend dental lectures, meetings, and dental conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern dental office can utilize to provide state-of-the-art dental care.  Also, being members of various professional dental associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.

A Positive Experience

Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is vital to our success.  We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience.  Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible.

We thank you for allowing us to take care of your dental needs and look forward to serving you.
