Dr. Matthew Kathan and the Team at Timber Dental Honored with Top Practice Award by eAssist

Portland OR, December 2020 – Dr. Matthew Kathan and the Team at Timber Dental are eAssist’s most recent recipients of the Top Practice Award. This honor is awarded each month to two exceptional eAssist clients who embody the values of integrity, expertise and grace, while providing exemplary patient care, running efficient operations, and giving back to their communities. Presented to the practice as a whole, the award recognizes the need for a cohesive unit to run a practice to the highest standards.

Dr. Matthew Kathan met Dr. Molly Marshall – a 4th generation dentist – while they were in dental school together in Omaha Nebraska. Now married with two children, they co-own Timber Dental. Originally founded in Northeast Portland in 2014, the practice has grown to include eight more doctors and a sizable staff in four neighboring locations.

As Dr. Kathan explained, “We aim to deliver dentistry in a minimally-invasive, comfortable, environmentally-conscious manner. From co-diagnosing needs alongside the patient, to limiting disposable waste in our practice, we’re careful about the impact we make on someone’s smile and on our community.” To help them do that, Timber Dental uses state-of-the-art technologies – everything from being a paperless environment with digital patient forms and charting, to digital x-rays, 3D cone beam imaging, iTero digital scanning, and other new technologies.

To support such a large practice, Timber Dental is always looking to grow the team by adding talented team players who want to learn and advance their careers, and whom share their values, listed as: “Rise by lifting others, Good vibes & high fives, Joy-i-fy the journey, Know and love our people, and Forge the trail… and get dirty along the way.” Perks and benefits include professional development, insurance, paid time off, staff retreats, and the opportunity to give back.

Everyone at Timber Dental is proud of the various awards they’ve won over the years, but none so much as being voted one of “The Best of Portland” by the people themselves. And not just by their patients and employees; Timber Dental is well-known in the community for giving back in a big way, through their Timber Cares Free Dental Clinic Days. “Once a quarter, Timber Dental opens our doors to the community for a full day to provide free, essential dental care to those in need. Timber Cares is our unique brand of philanthropy and community work… and one of our favorite days of the year!” explained Dr. Kathan.
