Dr. Rust's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Rust "Dr. Cristina Rust grew up in northern California and moved to the Pacific Northwest in 2000 to further her education, completing dental hygiene and later dental school from Oregon Health and Sciences University School of Dentistry. Being a dentist allows me to make a difference in people's lives by improving their self esteem and smile.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Rust "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

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!"
