About Our Dental Practice

Dr. Robert Everett
I was born in Portland, Oregon, many years ago. At a young age, I moved to Eugene, where I graduated from Sheldon High School. From there, I went to Oregon State University where I obtained my bachelor’s degree. (It was a difficult decision, but I am a Beaver despite my ties to Eugene.) I attended OHSU School of Dentistry and graduated in 1978. From there, I moved to Penticton, BC, Canada, where I lived for 12 years before moving back to Oregon. I started my practice here in Gladstone in 1990. I currently live in the wonderful berg of Gladstone with my wife and stepdaughter, and I have four fantastic adult children. I am blessed that I get to work with my wife Melissa every day and doing that has drawn us closer. One day I hope to see Gladstone further progress into the future.

I work hard to keep up on the current trends and treatments adding implant dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, laser treatment and Invisalign®, to name just a few services. I take pride in my work and stand by what I do. Dentistry is changing and we must keep up with those changes whether they are in treatment or diagnosis.

I love to take an interest in city activities. I am an active member of the local Gladstone-Oak Lodge Rotary Club. I have volunteered as chairman of the Gladstone Community Festival, a yearly event in our city, for the last 5 years. It is something I truly love, as I see how much fun the citizens have when they join in the festivities. Please visit the website gladstonecommunityfestival.org for a listing of the events and activities. I am also a board member of the Gladstone Senior Foundation, a group that works to advance the interests of all the seniors in our city. I follow city politics closely and find it interesting as we move forward to make a better place to live.

I have been blessed, because dentistry has been truly wonderful to me. I find it not only enjoyable but challenging. As I have often said, “Each day is an adventure, you never know what the day will bring.” Sometimes all of this can be a difficult task, but the one thing that keeps me going is seeing my patients every day and feeling I can do something to help them out. Saying hello and talking with everyone is the real meaning of my day.
