Dental Patient Loves OHSU Care


Dottie Havlik, 72, has been an OHSU School of Dentistry patient for three years. She drives in to the Portland school from Scappoose, Ore., and said the commute is worth it for the lower cost and because she likes the students and instructors.

“I initially came to the dental school for a new bridge,” said Mrs. Havlik. “The care is wonderful. I like the kids and the instructors come around and help the students. I’m happy!”

In late August, Mrs. Havlik made an appointment with her dental student, Hieu, for a mandibular implant retained denture.

“Oh, it’s nice!” she said. “It feels good. You did a great job, thank you.”

OHSU School of Dentistry has moved to its new location on South Waterfront:  2730 SW Moody Avenue, Portland, Ore., 97201-5042. To make an appointment, call (503) 494-8867. For directions, go to
