If you need acupuncture, but can’t afford even David’s sliding fee scale, check out the Oregon School of Oriental Medicine. You will get student practitioners who are supervised by the licensed teachers. Everything I have heard about the Student Intern Clinic is positive.

Yes, I have a dentist listed here. As we all know it is sometimes very hard to find a good dentist. Well I can heartily recommend Brock Van Gordon to you. I know Brock fairly well because as a student clinician he treated me for two years at the OHSU Dental School. Brock crafted and inserted over 8 gold inlays and onlays in my mouth. He uses the latest technology — no-pain, no-shot Dental Lasers and diagnostic lasering devices besides having a mercury free and 100% environmentally safe office.
