Ibsies, Fadi B, DDS
my 8 year old Son was visiting one of our friends in West Linn while my husband and I went out to dinner. He happened to fall off the bicycle and hit his front teeth on the handle bar, He fractured the bone as well as loosened his right front tooth. Our friend called us right away and suggested we go to the emergency room this was at 8pm on a Saturday. after 3 hours spent at the ER. They concluded that we should contact a dentist because there is nothing they can do there. So we called our friends and they suggested we call Dr. Ibsies. We called at 11pm and I was shocked that he even answered the phone. I was so distraught that he heard it in my voice and since he knew that family that referred us he came into the office, by now it was 11:30 pm. he stabilized my son's teeth by splinting them into place, by the time he was finished it was 2 in the morning on sunday. He then saw us first thing Monday morning and even sent us to see a specialist to verify that everything was done correctly. The specialist said that he couldnt have done a better job himself and told us to wait until everything healed. To all of our surprise not only did the bone heal very well but the two front teeth were able to be saved without having to do a root canal. I am so impressed with this doctor I cannot put it into words. Thank you, thank you, Thank you Dr. Ibsies we will be patients for life.

Yip Dana Anthony DDS MS - The Kids' Dentist
I love Google reviews! Based on the recommendations I saw on here, I went with Dr. Dana Yip's office when I established my kids with a Portland area dentist. I dont live near his office but it's pretty easy to get to and I've been impressed with the technology they employ and with the courteous personalities of everyone who works there. After several pretty nerve racking cavities, I'm pretty particular with the quality of service my children receive. After 5 visits to Dr. Yip's office, I think I made the right decision.
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
