Meet Our Doctors
Dr. Lisa Gitelson
Dr. Lisa Gitelson began her dental career as a chairside assistant and was so interested in her work that she decided to become a dentist. It was a life-changing decision! She was born in Portland but grew up in Lebanon, where her dad owns a farm. She returned to her birthplace and later became a graduate of Portland State University. Dr. Gitelson earned her dental doctorate (with honors) from Oregon Health and Sciences University in 1999. She owned an office in Salem for ten years and bought this office in 2012. Dr. Lisa keeps up with the latest trends in dentistry by attending continuing education courses in restorative and cosmetic dentistry, sleep apnea relief, and the surgical placement and restoration of dental implants. She is a member of the American Dental Association, the Oregon Dental Association, and the Washington County Dental Society.
Dr. Gitelson has two daughters that are the light of her life. She enjoys cooking, yoga, reading and travelling.
Dr. Matthew Erickson
Dr. Matthew Erickson was born in Anchorage, Alaska but grew up in Coos Bay, Oregon. During his childhood, he was fortunate to have great experiences with his family dentist. Dr. Erickson began to see dentistry as a way to connect with and help a community while working with his hands and new technology. He believes trust and transparency are paramount in working with patients. His personal philosophy is to treat patients how he’d treat his closest family members and friends.
Dr. Erickson is married to Alexis and they have a German shepherd and Cocker spaniel. In his spare time he’s on a never-ending quest to explore all of our public lands in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. He enjoys fishing, hunting, backpacking, gardening with native plants and almost anything outdoors. Dr. Erickson has traveled the world but believes nothing rivals the diversity and beauty of our state.
Dr. Will Wanninger
We’re thrilled to introduce you to the newest member of our doctor team, Dr. Will Wanninger. We're fortunate that he works with us on Mondays and will hopefully be taking on an even bigger role in the office during 2020.
A native of Birmingham, Alabama, Dr. Wanninger is a recent convert to Pacific Northwest living. He loves the access to nature and specifically the great backpacking, hiking, and fishing the Portland area has to offer. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Auburn University and received his dental degree from the University of Alabama Birmingham School of Dentistry. After dental school, he was accepted to a one-year residency at the University of Alabama Hospital, where he focused on trauma and surgery patients. His conservative approach is a perfect fit for this office, and we feel his keen interest in the artistic elements of dentistry will be a tangible benefit to our patient family.
Dr. Wanninger is a member of the American Dental Association, Oregon Dental Association, Multnomah County Dental Association, and Beaverton Oral Surgeons Study Club. When he isn’t working or enjoying the great outdoors, Will loves sports and travelling.
