Why Does My Tooth Hurt and How Can I Make it Feel Better?

Rarely does a toothache start at a convenient time. I don’t think I’ve known a patient who’s said, “I’m really glad this started hurting when it did. I was already in your parking lot and you happened to have time available!” Fortunately, we typically accommodate emergencies and make arrangements to help patients find comfort again […]

Patient Questions (and Answers) – A Top 5

We are asked lots of questions as a dental practice. Without further delay, here is a taste of the questions we field frequently in dentistry with our answers. Why do I need to fix my tooth, it doesn’t bother me? While it may seem obvious to most, dentistry managed in a reactive manner instead of proactively […]

White Dental Studio Entering its 5th Year Providing Exceptional Dentistry in Ashland, Oregon

Environmentally friendly dentistry is an approach to dentistry that utilizes best practices to reduce waste, conserve water and energy, and promotes whole body health and wellness through advances in technology and materials science. Environmental friendliness is not an easy task for any business, especially in medicine. In today’s interview I speak with Dr. Brandon White […]

Four Years Ago this Month!

It is hard to believe four years have come and gone since White Dental Studio opened its doors in March of 2014. Many things have happened for our practice in those four years and I am very excited for what we will do in our fifth year.  Looking back, I can realize how far we have […]

How do you think of Dentistry: Service or Commodity?

We change people’s lives through dental health if you think about it. Whether improving someone whose health is suffering from pain, infection, or missing teeth, to restoring a smile lost from an accident, decay, or otherwise, it has a profound affect. I have had patients come back after these life changing experiences and say their […]

BRING ON THE NEW YEAR!

It sure feels like 2017 flew by. We here at White Dental Studio have had a transformative year and our team is very excited to see what 2018 will bring us. To start 2017, we evaluated some of our systems and realized we could offer so much more to our patients by expanding our services […]

“Happy Thanksgiving”

Well another year is drawing to a close. We have much to be thankful for this year at White Dental Studio. For starters, we have seen so many from our community choose Cindy, Erin, Tishena and I for their dental care that we accelerated our expansion to provide another exam and treatment room in our […]

Living in Fear of the Dead … Tooth

Unlike everyone’s favorite film (or TV show) du jour, teeth that lose their vitality don’t come back. Teeth, more accurately the pulp inside the tooth, which carries nutrients and nerve fibers to communicate sensation, “die” for a number of reasons. This month, I’d like to look at some of those reasons and also discuss the […]

What are we doing at the first visit?!

Last month I talked about laying a foundation to improve the likelihood for successful dental care, and we received some very positive feedback! This month, I thought it might be nice to explain what an establishing visit in many offices includes. My philosophy towards dentistry remains conservative in regard to treatment while drawing from a […]

It’s Back To School Time

It’s hard to believe that September is just around the corner. For many of us, this is an exciting, stressful, nerve wracking, and fun adventure as summer winds to a close and our children gear up to go back to the classroom. At our house, this is the beginning of kindergarten and a new world […]

Spring Changes at White Dental Studio!

A few weeks ago I was at my 10 year reunion from dental school talking with a friend about White Dental Studio’s evolution over the last several years. We’ve been working towards improving health and wellness here with an obvious focus on teeth and gums since opening in early 2014, and it has been so […]

“How’d You Find Us?”

I try very hard to ask the question of every new patient I see early on in our first visit. My favorite answer (just a smidge past “I read about you in the LocalsGuide”) is that a friend or neighbor recommended you. Isn’t that amazing? I make choices off recommendations all the time – who […]

A Re-Introduction to Dr Brandon White 

I was looking through some of our early advertising and came across the first spot we ran in the Locals Guide (next to this column!). I came to the somewhat awkward realization that I’ve spent the last 3 years introducing our practice and staff but very little time introducing my background.  In my junior year […]

We’ve been working towards improving health and wellness here with an obvious focus on teeth and gums since opening in early 2014, and it has been so encouraging to hear positive feedback from the community.

It’s Back To School Time!

For many of us, this is an exciting, stressful, nerve wracking, and fun adventure as summer winds to a close and our children gear up to go back to the classroom. For many of us, this is the beginning of kindergarten and a new world of learning, exploring, and making new friends is days away. […]

Dental Chemistry, the Basics!

When a person thinks of a doctor, they often think of biology. While it’s true that biology is the major foundation for the medical field, it’s important to remember the roles chemistry play in medicine. Understanding chemistry is a pillar of dental comprehension which helps us to accurately and predictably achieve successful results. Over the […]

I’m NOT a number!

Having spent the last three years around more physicians, health care providers, and specialists of all types, my family and I have noticed a dramatic range in philosophies when it comes to building rapport and relationships within our health care system. Who hasn’t visited a business and felt like another “number” waiting.  How enjoyable is […]

What is EcoDentistry?

Probably the most commonly asked question we’ve had since opening, the simple response is that our practice focuses on water and energy conservation while reducing waste in the day-to-day practice of dentistry. We recently helped sponsor Rogue Valley Earth Day and exhibited our practice in April, and this question came from almost everyone. One of […]

The Joy of Whiter Teeth for the Holiday Season

Just a few weeks ago, my staff and I had the opportunity to present our practice and meet a number of residents at Mountain View Retirement Community just down the street from the office. I was very surprised when our Q&A session eventually led to a considerable discussion on tooth whitening procedures! We had a […]

Thank you!

I wanted to start this month with a sincere Thank You to everyone in the community who has chosen our office for their dental home. We’re grateful for your support during these opening months. We’ve received some wonderful feedback from so many over the last several months, so I felt it may be welcoming to […]
