Introducing your Troutdale dentists

Best Dentist in Portland, OR - Dr. Brian R. Hale, DMD

Brian R. Hale DMD

General Dentist

Growing up in the desert heat of Las Vegas, Nevada, Dr. Brian R. Hale was looking for a change of climate and scenery. It’s not hard to understand why he and his wife, Alisha, fell in love with Oregon’s forests and diverse landscapes. Relocating to Troutdale, Oregon in 2018 has been a refreshing experience. “My wife and I are constantly saying we can’t believe we get to live with so much natural beauty right in our backyard! Moving our family here has been one of the best decisions of our lives.”

Dr. Hale graduated from UNLV School of Dental Medicine in 2017 after earning his Bachelor of Science in Biology from Brigham Young University. During dental school, he served as Class Vice President, tutored in the pre-clinical simulation lab, and received the Delta Dental Student Leadership Award.

Following dental school, Dr. Hale went on to complete a one-year General Practice Residency at the Veteran Affairs Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland. Through this additional training, Dr. Hale devoted his time to advancing his skills beyond basic general dentistry – focusing on dental implants, root canals, and tooth extractions – with the goal of limiting the need for referring his patients at Troutdale Dental to specialists.

Dr. Hale furthers his education yearly through multiple continuing education courses well above the requirements of the Oregon Dental Board. He now offers Clear Aligners with Clear Correct, All-on-4 Implant Dentures, and multiple options for your Cosmetic Dentistry needs, including Veneers. He says, “The members of our community expect honest, top-notch dental care. We strive to provide this care predictably and efficiently in a comfortable and safe environment as we help our patients achieve their goals of oral health. Our team looks forward to showing you what sets us apart from the other dental practices.

In their free time, Dr. Hale, his wife, Alisha, and their two children, Luke and Addie, love to camp and explore wherever they find themselves.

Dr Brinton Roots Dental Broadway

Clark Brinton DMD

Dr. Brinton graduated from the OHSU School of Dentistry in 2013 as the class valedictorian. During his third and fourth 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.

He practiced general dentistry in New Mexico from 2013 to 2017, devoting much of his practice to IV sedation and dental surgery, including 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 holds education in such high regard that he is the CEO of Hero Dental Education, where he trains another dentist in hands-on dental implant surgery techniques, including dental implant surgery, restorative, complications, and All-on-4 implant retained dentures. His current course offerings are available at

Dr. Brinton and his wife, Kjerstin, have three young children, Annika, Hanna, and Sven. In their free time, they love to enjoy the outdoors, whether on foot, bike, or skis.
