Welcome to the Practice of Portland Dentist, David N. Carothers, DDS

The state of your smile has a strong influence on your wellbeing. It plays an essential role in allowing you to enjoy meals and speaking properly. Should issues with your teeth or oral health keep you from feeling comfortable or confident, you deserve to receive care as accommodating as it is reliable. Serving the dental needs of our community for more than 30 years, Dr. David N. Carothers and his team draw on their extensive experience and genuine passion for making positive changes in their patients’ lives through proven, gentle treatment.

From giving a smile a much-needed makeover to helping patients get a good night’s sleep, our practice offers a wide range of dental services for families in Portland, Gresham, and across Multnomah County.

Personalized Dental Services from an Experienced Team 

Helping our patients overcome their aesthetic and oral health challenges often requires treatment beyond routine examinations and cleanings. Working with you every step of the way, our Portland dentist develops individualized plans incorporating a number of services, which may include:

No matter if your concerns are centered on improving appearance or regaining full dental function, we tailor care to match your pace and personal comfort level.

Known for his skill as a clinician, Dr. Carothers strives to make each visit as pleasant of an experience as possible. He takes every patient’s unique preferences into consideration and, if requested, can even perform some procedures without the use of Novocaine. For situations where general anesthesia would make extensive treatment more comfortable, our dentist collaborates with a trusted anesthesiologist.

Caring for the Oral Health of Multnomah County

At our Portland dental practice, we believe being your oral health care providers means doing more than looking after your teeth. When recommending treatment to improve your overall wellness, our dentist addresses problems ranging from dental decay to obstructive sleep apnea.

The more people know about the link between their dental and overall wellness, the easier they feel about receiving treatment. For this reason, education is a large focus for Dr. Carothers and his entire team to both stay current with the latest advances in dentistry and help patients gain greater insight into their smile. We invite you to ask any questions throughout your care and make sure to always answer in a straightforward manner.

I appreciate you! I can honestly say that I think out of all the dentists I have seen, you are by far the best! You make going to the dentist (which use to be very, very scary) a positive experience. I really appreciate your honesty and calm nature. The work you do is always so good and I am grateful for your patience. Thank you so much for being such a great dentist! And thanks to your great staff as well! Oh, also, you are the most painless dentist I have ever been to.

I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Rob for his professionalism, patient advocacy and support. He displayed extraordinary determination to ensure I received the benefits due from my insurance carrier while maintaining integrity and ethical conduct.

It is intimidating to be a new patient, a new widow in a new state and a new resident at CherryWood. Inquiring among residents, I became aware of Dr. Carothers - favorably! Just wanted your staff to know my experiences at the office are satisfying and appreciated. You are warm, friendly and professional; giving your patients the sense of being in good hands. Bless you!
