About Us

Dr. Mike Willock

Dr. Mike. Willock is a native of Portland, Oregon. He has been involved in the medical field since he was in his teens working part time and then full time with the family business; design, development and manufacture of the dialysis machine. In his early business years he traveled internationally for the company, setting up offices.

In later years the company was sold to a major medical equipment manufacturer and at that time Dr. Willock decided to attend dental school, a life long dream.

He is a graduate of Portland State University, Portland, Oregon and the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry at Chapel Hill, North Carolina where he received several commendations from the faculty for management of patient care.

The world of dentistry is changing so fast that in order to be on the "cutting edge" of his field, he attends many hours of continuing education each year. He believes his patients deserve the best in skill and materials.

Working to attain the skill of a world class dentist is one thing, having the touch of a "lamb" is another. Dr. Willock's patients praise him for his very "soft touch" and his deep concern for his patients.

Dr. Willock's major focus in dentistry is the restoration of the mouth containing toxic dental materials that lead to many of the "modern" diseases we experience today. These toxic dental materials, can and do, create major health problems at remote sites in the bodies of people with weak or compromised immune systems and should be removed according to specific procedures so as not to aggravate existing medical conditions.

The office has been equipped with the latest equipment to make the dental office more environmentally friendly.
