Welcome to Dr. James Petersen’s Family Dental Clinic!

Welcome to the website of Dr. James Petersen. We invite you to take a moment to meet Dr. Petersen and the staff by touring our website. Together, we can make a difference in your dental needs.

In the heart of Central Oregon, below the rim rocks, you will find the oldest city in the High Desert – Prineville, Oregon – home of Dr. James Petersen’s Family Dental Clinic. Dr. Petersen has been serving his small-town community since 1978 and is a supporter of Prineville’s local community products and events. Dr. Petersen has pursued the highest standards of general dentistry for more than 39 years meanwhile attending the most advanced continuing education classes. Dr. Petersen’s repertoire of procedures is among the most advanced of all general dentists, and Dr. Petersen provides comprehensive treatment plans which rarely require sending patients to outside specialty offices. In a small town like Prineville, it would be difficult to find an office with more advanced technology and equipment – with 3-dimensional digital X-rays, WaterLase laser therapy, and other cutting-edge technology.

In addition to clinical excellence, a main focus of our practice is patient comfort. We use the most advanced anesthesia techniques, and we tailor our plan to each individual patient. We believe that fear shouldn’t stop anyone from receiving quality dental care. You’ll find our staff is friendly and upbeat, and we’ll do our best to make your visit comfortable and fun! Our staff is one of our best assets – they are licensed professionals with years of experience. They have the highest standards of quality and integrity, and they are motivated to achieve the best results for our family of patients. Our sterilization techniques and infection control are up-to-date and exceed the standards set forth by the Oregon Board of Dentistry. We go the extra mile to make sure that you are treated in the most sterile environment possible. Your safety is our top priority.

We hope that you find on our website all of the information that you need to choose our practice, but if you can’t, please call us. You will find our staff is the friendliest around.
