Dr. Ian Dickinson, DMD

General Dentist

Dr. Ian R. Dickinson was born in Dallas, Texas, but was raised in the rolling hills of the rural Napa Valley, California. He would often visit family and friends in the Pacific Northwest over the years which lead to him falling in love with the land and its people. He is now grateful to call Portland, Oregon his home. When he is not trying to visit every National Park, he can be found cooking or biking with Pedalpalooza PDX.

His undergraduate studies focused on English and Geology at Washington and Lee University in Virginia, and he received his Doctorate in Dental Medicine degree from Tufts University in Boston, MA. While there he co-founded and acted as secretary and then president for the Tufts Chapter of the Student Professionalism and Ethics association (SPEA). He attended a 1 year Advanced Education in General Dentistry program at University of the Pacific in San Francisco, CA focusing on Special Needs and Hospital dentistry.
