When you ask Dr. Coburn what he likes most about being a dentist, he’ll tell you it’s the fulfillment that he gets by helping people eliminate pain and embarrassment caused by their teeth.
Addressing his patient’s dental concerns and restoring optimal health means those individuals can resume enjoying everyday life, or experience a heightened sense of confidence that they’ve never felt before.
“Our practice is really good at taking care of our patients,” Dr. Coburn says, “Everyone here really cares about the people we serve; they’re not just a number, and that’s what makes us different…we try to make dentistry fun.”
So fun, in fact, that many of Dr. Coburn’s patients tend to laugh right through their injections! It’s no wonder why so many of them tell us that they’re the very best they’ve ever had.
As a dad, Dr. Coburn enjoys seeing young children and families in our practice. Watching his pediatric patients grow up between their six-month checkups and creating lasting friendships with their parents is something that he considers a true honor.
“I’m honored by the trust my patients place in me, and for me to care for their entire family’s oral health.”
With extensive training in sleep apnea intervention, Dr. Coburn offers screening resources and non-invasive therapy options for managing sleeping disorders. For patients that are CPAP intolerant, these measures change their quality of life and overall health.
Investing in advanced equipment allows Dr. Coburn to provide more efficient care without sacrificing quality of the patient experience. Through techniques like CAD/CAM dentistry and 3D imaging, it’s possible for him to deliver precise, same day treatments and full mouth rehabilitation.
Designing a brand-new smile requires a high level of attention and artistic skill. Dr. Coburn especially loves such cases, as each one is extremely unique. The results that he sees in his patients’ confidence and self-esteem make every moment of the process worth it.
Dr. Coburn is never finished learning. After earning his Doctorate of Dental Medicine from Oregon Health & Science University, he continued his search and training to improved his techniques. Some examples of his personal endeavors include training and experience in:

As a big supporter of our military members, Dr. Coburn enjoys providing discounted and free dental services for veterans after Stand Downs.
Dr. Coburn is an avid outdoorsman. When he isn’t at work, he’s boating or skiing — both snow and water, depending on the season. Even his kids are on a local ski team! Believe it or not, he’s also really into dirt biking (yes, he wears a mouthguard.)
