Dr. Clark Brinton
Dr. Brinton graduated OHSU School of Dentistry in 2013 as the class valedictorian. During his 3rd and 4 th years, he was selected as one of two students to train under Drs. Stanley Malamed and Ken Reed in IV sedation as a member of their mini-residency program. Dr. Brinton practiced general dentistry in New Mexico from 2013 to 2017, devoting much of his practice to IV sedation and dental surgery including root canal therapy, dental extractions, removal of impacted wisdom teeth, and dental implant surgery.
Dr. Brinton credits his high level of experience and education in a short time to his commitment to continued professional education and training. He says “as a dental student, I developed a passion for the practice of dentistry and went above and beyond the requirements to prepare myself for my future patients in every way possible. Since graduation, I’ve continued to pursue as much continuing education as possible with the goal of providing excellent care to my patients. I try to treat my patients like my family, which includes correct diagnosis, and excellent training and skill in the procedure being performed.”
Dr. Brinton completed didactic and live patient surgical implant training with OCO Biomedical in 2013 and has been placing and restoring dental implants since. He stays current with implantology by attending additional courses and symposiums, having recently returned from the world-renowned Pikos Symposium in November. Dr. Brinton is also a member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics and is a provider of therapeutic and esthetic Botox for TMJ and head and neck pain.
Dr. Brinton and his wife, Kjerstin have two young daughters, Annika and Hanna. In their free time, they love to enjoy the outdoors whether by foot, bike or skis.
