Dr. Joshua Schuyler
Dentistry means so much to me: it allows me to feel fulfilled by what I do, every day, with each patient I see and interact with. Getting to help people keep the teeth they have, or improve their function or aesthetics, is very satisfying!
One of the most exciting aspects of dentistry is how it is constantly advancing. Research leads to technological innovations, new materials, and changes to techniques. I love furthering my knowledge and skills to better serve our patients.
Since receiving my dental degree, I have completed extensive postgraduate courses and participated in study clubs, to learn about orthodontics, Invisalign®, and dental implants. I study current and evolving topics in general dentistry, too.
I grew up in Knappa and have lived in Portland for a decade and a half. My wife Nirvana is also a dentist. She owns her own office in Tigard. We have two active young sons, as well as a family dog ... and the boys keep asking for us to add another pup!
We spend a lot of time at the boys’ sporting events and I help to coach most of their teams. As a family, we enjoy skiing, golfing, hiking, and anything else that gets us outdoors.
Personally, I enjoy coaching the boys’ basketball, baseball, and soccer teams. When I have free time, outside of family and running the practice, I get away to the golf course.
I am passionate about being very involved in my kids’ lives; I have jumped into coaching their sports and have really enjoyed the connection with them and our broader community. I am also a passionate Trailblazers fan and love watching their games, whether on TV or — when I’m lucky — at the Moda Center.
