Dear Friends and Patients,

It has been my great pleasure and honor to have provided for your dental needs over the past 12 years at my practice, Dental Expressions, here in Lake Oswego. So, it is with mixed emotions, but also great excitement, that I am announcing my departure from private practice.

When I realized that my retirement was on the horizon, I was thrilled to have found that Dr. Matthew Sheppard was ready to continue his career as my replacement at Dental Expressions. I am confident that Dr. Sheppard will strive to provide you with the very best dental care possible and will meet your specific needs in a comfortable environment.

Dr. Matthew Sheppard has lived in Lake Oswego and was a 1998 graduate of Lakeridge High School. He went on to graduate from Linfield College in 2002. Matt turned his focus to dentistry, subsequently graduating from OHSU Dental School in 2007. He practiced dentistry in Arizona, as well as here in Oregon, and has developed skill and a reputation that sets him apart as a leader in our profession. He is uniquely qualified to take over for me and guide this practice with knowledge, wisdom and compassion well into the future.

Not all of the faces around here will be changing. Erica, Jaisa and Lindsey will remain to help Dr. Sheppard in this transition. You will continue to have a team of familiar professionals dedicated to meeting your dental needs. I have been very fortunate to have these ladies on my team for many years and I know that they will make a great team for Dr. Sheppard as well.

My thanks go out to you for your support over the years and I know that you will be very happy with Dr. Sheppard as you allow him to continue providing your dental care. I really will miss your smiling faces and I want you to know that it has been an honor for me to have served you.

It has been a privilege to discuss dentistry with Dr. Morrison and we hope she will continue to visit the office. Having grown up in the area and having my own dental office nearby I am extremely excited to step in to help take care of your dental needs.

I acquired Dr. Eckmann's dental office who was my own personal dentist a little over 5 years ago and have already developed close relationships with the patients in my office and I am eager to start that process with you. The office hours will be slightly extended to help accommodate everyone’s needs.

As Dr Morrison said, everyone in the office will be sticking around and I will be adding a few new faces that will be introduced to you. I am fortunate to have several compassionate, hard working people to help care for your needs. Sierra, our hygienist grew up in the Portland metro area and has been practicing just under 10 years. On their home time: Sierra and her boyfriend love working out and playing with their dogs. Becky, who also grew up in Lake Oswego, has been assisting for almost 20 years. She has 4 children that she loves watching play in local sports. Gina, our front office person has been in the dental field longer than all of us and has been in several roles throughout her career. She loves helping patients find ways to best utilize their health insurance. Finally: our little office mascot: Cali. She comes in every day to greet our patients with a big smile. She is a 5-year-old Chihuahua mix who adores everyone!

We are all looking forward to seeing you soon!

Low Radiation Digital X-Rays

Digital X-Rays are taken with very low radiation. They require less time to process than traditional X-rays, use no harmful chemicals, and can be digitally enhanced or enlarged to aid the dentist in treatment planning.

Intraoral Camera

With an intraoral camera, we can help you better understand what is happening in your mouth. Using up-close imagery of your mouth on a computer screen, Dr. Morrison can show you exactly what the problem is and better explain her recommendations.

We offer complimentary second opinions to give you and your family peace of mind. Give us a call to make an appointment. We will be delighted to arrange for some individual time for you.

Taking Care of You With Great Dentistry
