“It is our desire to provide exceptional dental care in a compassionate setting and display honesty, integrity, and character in all we do.”

Meet Dr. Ross

“I would like to welcome you to our office. My team and I have a goal to make your dental experience more comfortable than you ever thought possible.”

Born in Wyoming and raised in Montana, I was taught the value of hard-work by my parents, who also instilled in me a dedication to service. I attended Montana State University (Go Bobcats!) and completed my Doctorate in Dentistry at Oregon Health and Sciences University in 1990. It is there that I met my wife, Sheri, who was finishing her degree as a Dental Hygienist. After graduating, I worked as an associate in several offices before moving to Salem to acquire the practice of Dr. Richard Springer.

  • Doctorate:  Oregon Health Sciences University, Portland, Oregon

Besides general dentistry, my passions outside of the office include fly fishing, thinking about fly fishing, talking about fly fishing, backpacking, reading, and serving Christ through our church and other organizations.

About the Practice

In 1994, Dr. Ross moved his young family from Lake Oswego to Salem after purchasing a well-established practice owned by respected Dr. Richard Springer, DMD.

Originally, the practice was located in an office building near Bush Park on Liberty Street, but in 2003, Dr. Ross’s ambition to own a free standing building came to fruition.  Purchasing 2 dilapidated homes, tearing one down completely to accommodate the parking lot, and remodeling the present building, we now reside a little farther South of the historic Bush Park on Commercial Street, SE.

We are blessed exceedingly as our staff, from front office to hygienists and assistants, are excellent, knowledgeable and friendly.

Dr. Ross and his family: Matthew, Sheri, Samantha, and Jacob.
