West End Dental Inc and Dr. Krippaehne’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak:
The American Dental Association has recommended and the Oregon Governor has ordered that all non-emergency procedures by dentist cease. The order is an attempt to preserve protective equipment, such as gloves and masks for the COVID-19 patients.

In an attempt to keep any dental emergency out of our hospitals' emergency departments, dental offices are encouraged to treat dental emergencies through virtual communication when possible.

In response, West End Dental Inc and Dr. Krippaehne are fully prepared to provide teledentistry to those in need, including new or established patients.

If you or someone you know has an urgent dental concern, please contact Polly (office manager) on her cell phone 503-267-4893 to schedule a teledental visit with Dr. Krippaehne.

If you would like to contact our office with a non urgent matter, please call the office at 503-224-7815. You may also fax or email with non urgent matters. Fax 503-222-0029, email

Your First Visit

This visit will include x-rays that will allow the doctors to view the structure of your jaw, the position of any teeth that have not yet erupted, malformed roots and tooth decay. If you have had a full-mouth series of films within the last three years, please bring a copy with you. Your previous dentist will be able to provide these to you.

Your doctor will complete a comprehensive examination and we will collect your full medical history including all your current medications and any recent illness. This will help your doctor to select the safest and most effective method of treatment for you. After carefully examining your records, we will fully explain any recommended treatment and cost.


Complimentary covered parking is provided in the Smart Park Garage, located on SW 10th Ave, between Yamhill and Morrison. For those patients with special needs, please contact our office for special parking arrangements.
