Dr. Riley Clark | DMD

Dr. Clark has been passionate about dentistry for decades. As a young high school student, he began his discovery of dentistry. He was the janitor in his father’s practice in Portland, Oregon. In the early hours of the morning, he would go to the office with his mom and clean every corner of the office in preparation for patient care- from bathrooms to treatment rooms, he became well-versed with dental offices! He later went on to be a dental assistant and work in the front office. He’s real passion for dentistry developed as he watched patients’ lives change through compassionate dental care. He noticed most patients seemed more like great friends with his dad than clients visiting a business. Likewise, he saw his father thoroughly enjoying what he did all day. It was compelling to witness the most magical thing of dentistry; the Doctor-Patient relationship. The Doctor-Patient relationship is what motives Dr. Clark to offer the highest care in dental implantology.

Dr. Clark received his bachelor’s degree at Portland State University. He then attended Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland Ohio for his DMD degree. During dental school, Dr. Clark finished his requirements ahead of schedule. This allowed him to attend advanced training in IV sedation at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania.

He is most well-known for his use of technology and digital workflows within implant dentistry.

Dr. Clark and his amazing wife, Kolt, have three energy-filled daughters. When not serving patients, he enjoys exploring the outdoors with his family. His most favorite thing to do, however, is to cuddle with his family on the couch and watch hallmark Christmas movies!
