Meet Our Dental Providers

Jason Atack, D.M.D

General Dentist

Dr. Atack says, “I enjoy the fine detailed work, but mostly I enjoy my interactions with my patients. I'm a social guy and love getting to know people. When I'm friends with a patient, we're both more comfortable exploring their needs and desires. That helps create a good experience for both of us. I take my job very seriously, but try not to be overly serious while I work. We like to have fun be upbeat in the office–otherwise it's just work. My bother is also a dentist and it was from him that discovered how interesting, challenging, and artistic dentistry can be!”

After receiving his B.S. in Recreation Management from Brigham Young, Dr. Atack earned his B.S. in Biology from Portland State University. He was awarded his Dental Degree from the OHSU School of Dentistry. He is a member of the Oregon Dental Association and the American Dental Association.
               
Dr. Atack says, “I'm a musician that uses dentistry to support my habit. My wife is a musician as well, and our four children are all budding music makers. I love being with my family. Together we enjoy biking, camping, trips to the beach (any beach!), and good food. I used to be an avid snowboarder, and now that my children are developing an interest, I'm renewing that hobby with them. I also volunteer with my children’s sports teams and boy scout troop, as well as being very active in my church.”
