|February is National Children's Dental Health Month. Call and schedule a new patient appointment during the month of February and you will receive a kids Quip electric toothbrush set! Remember the key to avoiding cavities is brushing twice a day, flossing, eating a low sugar diet and seeing your dentist regularly!|
Noel Larsen, DMD
Dr. Noel Larsen received her D.M.D. degree from the Oregon Health and Sciences University and her certificate in pediatric dentistry in 1994 from the Children's Hospital Medical Center in Cincinnati, Ohio. She is a second generation dentist, following in her father's footsteps. He was also a pediatric dentist in the Portland area.
During her 20 plus years of practicing dentistry, she has held many positions in organized dentistry, including president of the Oregon Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, board member and treasurer for the Multnomah County Dental Society, secretary-treasurer of a dental fraternity, Delta Sigma Delta, and co-chair, then chair of the American College of Dentists. She is a member of two honorary dental organizations, the American College of Dentists and the International College of Dentists.
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. The annual Hood to Coast Race is her yearly challenge!
