Dr. Koichi Saito's Biography

Dr. Saito remembers the time he spent with his childhood best friend, whose father was a dentist and allowed them to play with old burs and dental tools at his office. Since that time, Dr. Saito has been hooked with working inside the tooth with the dental microscopes and even smaller tools. Retired from the U.S. Navy serving more than two decades of service, he embraces Willamette Dental Group’s practice philosophy of evidence-based prevention and treatment similar to that of military medicine with its focus on patient care as opposed to production.

Now excited to call Portland his home, he’s known to spend days away enjoying its diverse selection of restaurants, hiking and snowboarding trails.
