New Patients


what to expect at our Bend Dental Office

“I want a dental office near me. One that treats me so well, I actually look forward to visits. One that has an atmosphere and a team that puts me at ease and erases all my fears. But most importantly, I want a dental office that has all the services, techniques, and technology that I would expect from a much larger, big-city office. Can I find that here in Bend?”

The answer is a resounding YES! And you found it all under one roof at Ponderosa Dental Center. We love seeing the reaction of our new patients when they realize just how nice their experience with us will be – on the first visit and every visit thereafter.

“New in town, a little nervous about finding a new dental place as my previous one was so great. They made me feel welcome and confident about their abilities… great beginning!” – JACKIE JOHNSON

“I had the best dental experience at Ponderosa! The office is very, very clean, beautiful, and the space I was in faced the mountainside and a beautiful waterfall!” – NANCY KERRIGAN


Every exam you receive from your Ponderosa Dental Center team is comprehensive, but your first one is especially so. If you need a cleaning, we’ll take care of that too. Once everything is completed and your smile feels refreshed and renewed, we will sit down with you, review our findings, and create a dental plan. We use an artificial intelligence platform to support our findings with a hands on approach of diagnosis to enhance clinical care. We are on the quest to improve oral health by creating a future that is clinically precise, efficient & patient-centric. You’ll leave knowing exactly what is going on in your mouth, educated on your needs, and in full control of your smile’s future.


We know exactly what it’s like – sitting in the waiting room, balancing a clipboard on your lap, and trying to remember all the pertinent details of your medical and dental history. Who doesn’t draw a blank in those situations? That’s why we have made all those forms available right here! Just fill them out online at your convenience. Clipboard not required!
