Dr. Bart Ekren, Orthodontist
Being an orthodontist has been a very rewarding experience for Dr. Ekren. He enjoys getting to know his patients and their families. One of the greatest pleasures is seeing the transformation having pretty teeth and an attractive smile can make in one's life.

Dr. Ekren graduated, with honors, from the University of Colorado Dental School.
He practiced general dentistry for four years in a rural Colorado town before returning to school to specialize in orthodontics at the Oregon Health Sciences University.

Dr. Ekren is involved in many professional organizations, including the American Association of Orthodontists, Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists, Oregon Dental Association, and the Washington County Dental Society. He served in several roles with the Washington County Dental Society, including President. Dr. Ekren also represented the local society at the state level as Trustee to the Oregon Dental Association, serving one term on the Executive Committee.

Outside the office, Bart focuses on his family; his wife Margie, son Clint, and Emma, the child of his late daughter Katy. Dr. Ekren enjoys the outdoors, especially fishing, hiking, and bird watching. His hobbies include woodworking, carving, and astronomy.

Clint, Orthodontic Assistant
Clint has been the orthodontic assistant since 2005. He is the 'right hand man' of the operatory - assisting, taking x-rays, impressions and sterilizing equipment. He is very organized and has a gentle touch when working with patients. Clint has good rapport with adults as well as children and helps patients feel at ease.
Everyone enjoys Clint's outgoing, fun-loving personality.

Outside of work, Clint loves spending time with his fiance, Bobbie, and their adorable 3 year old son. Clint loves being outdoors and enjoys gardening and fishing.

Terri has been with our practice since August 2015. She is the one to greet you, whether it is on the phone or when you arrive for your appointment. Terri handles all front office duties as well as scheduling, insurance billing and financial arrangements.

Outside of work, Terri enjoys spending time with her husband, Alex, and dog, Trixie. as well as her precious grandchildren. She likes spending time outdoors, especially taking long walks on the beach and hiking.

The Dougy Center

My daughter, Katy, died in an RV crash August 15, 2004 at the age of 24. Her daughter, Emma, was one year old at the time. Emma continues to live with Margie and me. We could have never imagined the path our lives have taken, but are grateful to be able to be a part of raising our granddaughter. Emma is in
fourth grade and attends Mable Rush Elementary School in Newberg. In memory of Katy, and in
honor of Emma, a contribution is made to the Dougy Center on behalf of every patient that starts treatment.
