About High Desert Dental

The team at High Desert Dental believes that excellent dental care should be available to everyone. Under the leadership of Ben Peterson, DDS, the practice has become an invaluable resource to the community of Ontario, Oregon, and is always searching for ways to improve access to unparalleled dental treatment.

Preventive care is a foundation of the practice. Comprehensive dental exams provide insight into each patient’s current dental health, and professional teeth cleaning sends them out into the world with a sparkling smile. Patient education is woven into every interaction, giving patients the skills needed to take control of their own dental health and wellness. 

When restorative care is needed, a conservative approach is preferred. Patients are advised on all available treatment options, including the potential outcomes of not moving forward with treatment. Every effort is made to preserve as much healthy tooth tissue as possible when creating crowns, bridges, and root canals.

Cosmetic dentistry is also an area of focus, allowing patients to feel confident about the smiles they share. Dental veneers, teeth whitening, bonding, contouring, and reshaping are just some of the possibilities. InvisalignⓇ offers the chance to straighten smiles without traditional metal braces.

High Desert Dental also offers treatment for sleep apnea, a serious condition that can affect your overall health. Dental implants are also an area of specialty, and can permanently replace missing teeth. Patients can even rely on Dr. Peterson for BotoxⓇ and fillers, options that can deliver a more youthful and well-rested facial appearance.

While all patients are valued at High Desert Dental, pediatric dentistry is an especially rewarding part of the practice. Watching kids grow up and embrace great dental hygiene is incredibly rewarding for Dr. Peterson and his team, and reminds them why they chose to build careers around dental health.

For those in and around Ontario, Oregon, who are searching for state-of-the-art dental care from a caring and compassionate provider, High Desert Dental has a lot to offer. Call the office today to book a visit, or schedule online with just a few clicks.
