Meet the Doctor
Dr. Ronda Trotman, DMD
I have been practicing a full scope of general dentistry in the Portland metro area for over 24 years. I attended OHSU School of Dentistry, graduating with High Honors in 1996. I have a 37 year- old daughter, who is a Veterinarian in Chicago, and a 33-year-old, recently married, son here in Portland. Yes, I’m hoping for a grandchild in the next couple of years!

As an avid skier, you will find me either on Mt Hood, or Mt. Bachelor with my husband most weekends once the snow flies. We have 2 beautiful Rhodesian Ridgeback dogs that pretty much rule the house. They think they are lap dogs in spite of weighing 84, and 95 lbs. respectively. I have a nice collection of bonsai trees, so the non-winter months I am frequently out on the patio, or in the garden.

As a second- generation dentist, I know how important it is to place patient’s first. I place a very high value on continuing dental education so I can stay current with the best possible techniques and treatment philosophies’ as I care for my patients.

My father practiced dentistry for over 62 years and was an early adopter and leader in improved infection control procedures and techniques. I have been utilizing single-use, protective barriers on frequently touched surfaces for many, many years. What many thought was over-kill years ago, has now become the standard of care, and more important than ever in my office. This additional effort to prevent the spread of disease is critical not only to my patients, but also to my staff. We have added aerosol reduction equipment and continue to seek out the best possible practices to keep everyone safe and healthy. With current concerns regarding COVID-19, our efforts to significantly reduce the risk of cross contamination between patients and staff is critical.

We know that continuing your regular care is critical to your health and we want your experience to be safe and positive. Implementing daily preventative techniques such as effective homecare and good nutrition can reduce the likelihood of needing extensive dental procedures. Our providers and staff are always available to help with any concerns you may have regarding the health of your mouth.

I am fortunate to have a staff that has been with the practice for many years, so many of you will be pleased to find the same smiling faces you have come to know. I look forward to meeting those of you I haven’t met yet.

Quality dental care in a safe and clean environment is what we are about. We look forward to seeing you at your next visit!

This condition gets even worse with high cholesterol levels and this is why it's important that people with high cholesterol to really pay attention to their oral health.

Periodontal diseases are caused by bacteria, plain and simple. When bacteria enter the bloodstream, it can pose a serious threat to your heart as well as other parts of your body.

Periodontal diseases take a long time to treat and patients with medical conditions could be at a higher risk of multiple complications. Remember, the best defense is a good offense, so attack those germs and bacteria by brushing and flossing regularly!

How to Get Past Excuses and Floss More
GEN flossing 1168445879
Our professionals recommend flossing your teeth after every meal. While this may seem like an easy task that won't take up too much of your time, it is something that often times gets overlooked or downright ignored. Flossing is an integral part of maintaining good oral hygiene and it's a habit you shouldn't break.

Flossing At Work
Flossing at work should be a daily habit that you inculcate, especially if you spend most of your time at work. There is no need to be embarrassed about flossing; it's something everyone should be proud of doing. After your meal, simply head to the restroom, floss your teeth well and come out flashing a beautiful smile.

Lunch / Dinner Date With Friends
If you are out with friends for a meal, you could choose to wait till you get back home and floss. However, if you plan on spending the entire day outdoors, simply excuse yourself so you can head to the restroom and floss your teeth.

Flossing your teeth after every meal not only promotes healthy oral care, it also ensures that there are no food particles stuck in your teeth that may show up when you smile. The last thing you want is a piece of broccoli waving hello when you are in the middle of an important meeting. This isn't something anyone would forget soon. Once you get into the habit of flossing after every meal, you won’t make any more excuses, and this will help promote better oral health.
