New Patient Experience

A Message From Kelly Blodgett, DMD

“Blodgett Dental Care is Portland’s first truly “minimally-invasive” dental practice. We use technologies that help to diagnose the causes of problems, rather than just treating the symptoms of problems. It is our firm belief that a better quality of life is obtained by reducing your risk for diseases rather than just treating the symptoms of a disease.

At Blodgett Dental Care you will always be treated by a caring team of professionals who have your goals in mind. We will consistently provide you with the best quality treatment available. You deserve nothing less!

The only way to truly appreciate what we mean is to experience it for yourself.”

“Every time I leave Dr. Blodgett’s office I feel confident that I have received the very best dental care and advice to be found, period. It is so nice to finally have a dentist I feel I can trust and have confidence in!”

Steve W.

What To Expect At Your First Appointment?

Your first appointment at Blodgett Dental Care will be different from any other dental visit you’ve ever experienced. It is all about you. Your goals, your values, and your desired outcomes.

You will be welcomed by a member of our hospitality team. You will have your choice of filtered water, tea or fresh coffee. You can relax with your beverage while you enter your health information at either our New Patient iMac station or on a tablet.

Next, one of our exceptionally caring dental hygienists will invite you to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of our New Patient Consultation room. It is a space specifically designed to build lasting relationships. We want to clearly understand:

  • Your goals
  • Your health history
  • Your dental history
  • Why you chose our practice as your dental home

Once we understand your goals, we will collect information to help us understand your level of oral health and how it is related to your whole body health.

On all new patients we offer:
  • Tooth Decay Risk Assessment
  • Gum Disease Evaluation
  • Bite Function Analysis
  • 2D & 3D Digital X-Rays
  • Photographs of your smile, teeth, and gums
  • VELscope Oral Cancer Screening
  • Antioxidant Scan
Optional assessment tools:
  • DNA analysis for risk of inflammation
  • DNA analysis of disease-causing periodontal bacteria
  • At-home Sleep Study, if needed

Once we have gathered all of the necessary information, we will review the findings with you. We will then share our recommendations for helping you achieve your oral health goals. The level of investment will always be presented and if special financial arrangements are needed, our financial coordinator will create a plan that works best for you.

At the conclusion of your New Patient Experience at Blodgett Dental Care, you will be:

  • Amazed at what you have learned
  • Excited to move forward with your care
  • Motivated to commit to your best oral and systemic health!

Our Philosophy

Dentistry is about more than “drilling and filling.” We have changed the paradigm of what it means to be a dentist. At Blodgett Dental Care, our approach is:

  • Minimally-invasive
  • Focused on optimizing your whole body health
  • Designed to treat whole systems, not just treat symptoms

About Our Office

  • Relaxing & Optimized For Your Health
  • Eco-conscious
  • Judgement-Free Environment
  • Friendly, Dedicated Staff

No Insurance? No Problem.

At Blodgett Dental Care we have one focus: helping you achieve outstanding dental and whole-body health. Your dental insurance (or lack of it) shouldn’t dictate your care.

If you don’t have dental insurance, we are here to help. We will work with you to develop a treatment plan that helps you get the care you need AND that works with your finances.

“Dr. Blodgett loves his work, and he is really, really good at it. He is genuinely happiest when he is expertly fixing something in your mouth. I really have the deepest gratitude for the team, and I highly recommend Blodgett Dental Care.”
