Kyle Van, DDS
Dr. Van attended the University of Oregon for his undergraduate degree and was one of two students from his
class at Northwestern University Dental School to be selected by the faculty to graduate six months early.
Since graduation, he has undergone extensive continuing education, with additional training in such topics as
moderate IV sedation, wisdom teeth extraction, and dental implants. He most recently attended an advanced
composite hands-on course that allows him to provide a more esthetic and conservative way to give his patients
more beautiful front-teeth veneers. He is an active member of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, Academy
of General Dentistry, Northwest Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry Study Club, and the Periodontal Study Club at
OHSU. Additionally, Dr. Van constantly evaluates emerging dental methods and technologies in order to provide his
patients with the best results in the least invasive manner with a high emphasis on comfort.
Kyle and Hai-Lien Van have four beautiful children, and when he's away from the office, Dr. Van enjoys spending
time with his family and attending his kids' extracurricular activities, such as taekwondo and swimming.
