Dr. Candace Krause grew up in Milwaukie and is a 1983 graduate of the OHSU School of Dentistry, and completed undergraduate studies at OSU in 1980. She wanted to become a dentist because she enjoys the detailed nature of the work. Each dental exam and procedure has to be done right the first time, and for someone who likes focused work, dentistry was a natural choice. However, every patient, every tooth, and every day are different for her, and this is one of the pleasures of both being a dentist and running a business. Her ability to ease suffering and promote health in her patients is what makes Dr. Krause’s work gratifying every day.
Dr. Krause’s gentle and reassuring manner instantly puts her patients — children and adults — at ease. This is part of her personality, but it’s also a result of years of experience.
