About Us

Team PhotoAt Pediatric Dentistry of Portland, pediatric dentistry is more than bright, healthy smiles; it's also about making the trip to the dentist a calm, pleasant experience so there's no fear of "next time." As pediatric dentists, we take pride in seeing our patients grow into their adult teeth, so we're committed to earning the trust of everyone who visits our clinic — both children and parents.

Dr. Larsen especially enjoys treating patients with special needs. "It gives me special joy to make coming to the dentist a fun experience for children who need extra time and patience with each visit." Her time away from the office is spent chasing her son, Davis, and their family dog Rudolph or "Rudy," who you can meet at the office on most days. She is an avid gardener, skier and runner.

She enjoys volunteering regularly at the Creston Children's Dental Clinic, on the Tooth Taxi and at events like Mission of Mercy. She was recognized in recent years by Portland Monthly Magazine as a Top Pediatric Dentist in Portland; her selection was based on votes from her dental colleague peers.

She received her board certification in pediatric dentistry in 2007, and is a Diplomat of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. She was also recently nominated and selected for membership into the American College of Dentists, which is an honorary organization for dentists who have "exemplified excellence through outstanding leadership and exceptional contributions to dentistry and society."

She chose pediatric dentistry as a specialty not only because she loves children, but also because she values being able to help children develop a positive attitude toward dental care that will last them a lifetime, by making dentistry fun and comfortable for them while they are young. Parents often remark to her that their children were so excited they couldn't wait for their dental visit, the highest compliment she could receive.

When she is not busy caring for little ones at the dental office, she enjoys spending time with her family. She has a daughter, Lucy, and a son, Charlie, and two loveable dogs, Daisy and Zorro.
