  • Dentist

Education & Training

  • Oregon State University
  • Oregon Health & Science University School of Dentistry where he received his Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD)

From the beginning of his career, Dr. Watanabe chose to practice in a group practice because it allows him the ability to practice dentistry and to stay on the cutting edge of dentistry while also being a leader, mentor, and trainer of dentists and other members of the clinical team as a Portland-Metro area Regional Dental Director. Dentistry is like a hobby to him rather than a job as he is so passionate about it and is in awe as to how he is able to make a difference in the lives of his patients by utilizing his clinical and customer service skills.

"My passion is to make a difference in each patient's dental health, overall health and self-image while helping them overcome any possible dental phobias. I absolutely love performing endodontic treatment, oral surgery and cosmetic dentistry procedures, as well as mentoring others." — Dr. Al Watanabe
