Meet Our Bend, OR Dentist
Dr. Joshua Nolin Prentice
Originally from Oklahoma, Dr. Prentice and his family fell in love with Bend while vacationing in Oregon. Shortly thereafter, he opened and founded the Ponderosa Dental Center.
As a child, Dr. Prentice became interested in dentistry while spending time at his Uncle's dental office. The dental office was full of fun and laughter and great relationships all around. Dr. Prentice's interest in the dental field later grew out of his love for technology. As a boy, he spent time building computers and learning software programming. Today, Dr. Prentice utilizes the most advanced dental technologies available to provide dentistry that is truly state-of-the-art.
Dr. Prentice enjoys teaching and was recently asked to become a member of the Dental Assisting Advisory Board at Central Oregon Community College. He also spends time coaching and training other dentists on the technologies he utilizes in his dental office.
Outside of work, you’ll find Dr. Prentice spending time with his family. Happily married to his high school sweetheart, the pair are the proud parents of three young children. Donuts are Dr. Prentice’s favorite food, and he loves them all: Richard's, The Dough Nut, Daylight, Voodoo, Blue Star, and Pips in Portland. Dr. Prentice also enjoys photography, golfing, traveling, running, and reading.
