Orchid Health announces our grand opening of our new Dental Office in Oakridge, Oregon. The new office sits adjacent to the Orchid Health Oakridge Clinic and will open on our sixth anniversary in Oakridge. The new office will deliver the ultimate dental hygienist experience for adults and pediatric patients by offering the latest technologies to help patients receive the oral care they need to achieve a healthy smile.
Orchid Health’s Oral Care offers a wide range of cosmetic dentistry procedures - including teeth cleaning, x-rays, fluoride treatment, and dental health education. The new office will support patient safety during times of COVID-19 as it comes equipped with enough space to practice social distancing. Our dental services are open to all Orchid Health patients and if you are not a patient, becoming one is easy. Visit our website to learn more.
The new clinic looks to be “a bridge across the gap to the lack of dental care Oakridge residents have experienced,” says Orchid Health’s Expanded Practice Dental Hygienist Jodi Budd. “We heard from patients with significant fears of dental treatment say that they were pleasantly surprised by how comfortable we made it and how we helped alleviate their worry.” Jodi and her team look to help patients understand how “other health issues can be affected by neglected oral disease and that improving overall health can lead to a better quality of life.”
The grand opening will take place at Orchid Health’s Oakridge Clinic (47815 OR-58, Oakridge, OR 97463) on August 11th from 11:30 am - 2:00 pm and will be available to watch from the convenience of your home on Facebook Live. The live stream will include an online giveaway of two Electric Toothbrushes and two teeth whitening appointments to four lucky winners. RSVP by visiting the event page today!
Due to COVID-19, the event is limited to the press and Orchid Health staff. Social Distancing and masks are required. The grand opening will include a ribbon-cutting ceremony, lunch, and an online giveaway. Follow Orchid Health’s Facebook account to learn more.
About Orchid Health
Orchid Health was founded with the mission of solving the problems and inefficiencies of modern American healthcare and to make sure that no patient or community lacked access due to the current system.
Our Oral Care Practice is led by Expanded Dental Hygienist Jodi Budd and her assistant, Kiera Killingbeck. Jodi obtained her Expanded Practice Permit in 2008, which allows a dental hygienist to provide dental hygiene care to patients without the supervision of a dentist. She has 29 years of clinical experience in general practice and 18 years of clinical experience in pediatric specialty practice.
Kiera grew up in Oakridge and knows and loves her home city. The two look forward to working with the residents of Oakridge and sharing their knowledge of oral care.
