Our mission is Ultimate Service, Superior Performance, and Positive Impact.

A Positive Experience
We are dedicated to building a trusting, personalized relationship with every patient by treating each as a special individual. We know that many people feel nervous and uneasy about their dental visits, and we strive to make a difference by providing a comfortable, positive experience at Smiles Dental. Our entire team is committed to providing you with personalized, high-quality dental care and service so that your visits are as pleasant and enjoyable as possible.

Experts in Anxiety-Free Visits
We are here to take the fear out of visiting the dentist. Our dentists and team members will explain every step of your treatment along the way, and we also provide our Signature Anxiety-Free Services like sedation dentistry, warm blankets, and iPods to help you feel more at ease.

High Standards in Professional Dental Care
Our Smiles team members love their jobs, and it shows. Our degreed professionals are here to not only treat your dental needs with the highest possible level of service and care, but to also build personal relationships along the way. We are proud to say that many of our patients have commented that our office feels like a family, where they are always greeted warmly and treated fairly.

We maintain high standards of excellence in personalized dental care, which enable us to provide the quality dental care our patients need and deserve. Our dentists provide comprehensive treatment planning, as well as both restorative and cosmetic dentistry so you can reach optimal oral health. If you experience a dental emergency, our team is here to provide you with the care you need as soon as possible.

Professional Dental Training & Expertise
We want you to feel confident in our team of dental health professionals. Each of us is a highly trained and skilled clinician, and we take pride in providing you with the care you need to keep your smile in good health.

We are also committed to continual education and learning to provide you with the best possible care and results. Dr. Cooper and Dr. Nebeker, along with the rest of our team, regularly attend dental meetings, lectures, and conventions to stay current with the latest techniques, equipment, and products in the dental field. This helps us to provide your family with state-of-the-art dental care. We also belong to various professional dental associations, which helps us stay up to date with the most recent recommendations and changes in dentistry.

Continual Education & Prevention
At Smiles Dental, we believe that preventive care and education are the keys to excellent dental health. We focus on providing “dental health care” instead of “disease care,” which is why we focus on thorough dental exams. Our exams include checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking X-rays as necessary.

Our team also knows that steps like routine cleanings, flossing, fluoride, and sealants each play an important part in preventing dental disease. We are concerned about your overall health, not only the appearance of your smile. Our dentists in Salem, Oregon, regularly review your medical history to stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses or conditions that may impact your oral health.

Uncompromising Commitment to Safety
Infection control is also of concern to our Smiles team. We strictly maintain sterilization and cross-contamination processes using the standards outlined by the American Dental Association (ADA), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and Center for Disease Control (CDC). This helps to protect both our team and our patients.
