History

For more than 40 years, Dr. Kasch has provided family dental care and been a Portland pioneer in the field of sedation dentistry.

He understands that many people experience apprehension and anxiety about a visit to the dentist, and that’s why Sleep Dentistry of Portland was formed.

When Dr. Kasch was seven years old, he had an unpleasant dental experience that left him very apprehensive about going to see the dentist. When he himself became a dentist, he created an environment of peace and comfort to help calm anxious patients.

That’s why our dentists offer both a gentle touch and free Nitrous Oxide. For patients who desire a more relaxing experience, Sleep Dentistry of Portland & Vancouver has advanced the use of IV sedation and is a premier practitioner of all sedation dentistry options.

A Portland Legacy

Dr. Kasch received a Bachelor of Science degree from Lewis & Clark College before earning his doctorate from the Oregon Health & Science University School of Dentistry.

Formerly called Gresham Family Dental, the same Portland location has been home to Dr. Kasch for more than two decades. Sleep Dentistry of Portland & Vancouver sees patients from across and beyond the Portland area, including Washington, the Coast, and even Eastern Oregon.

Sleep Dentistry of Portland & Vancouver has expanded from a family practice to provide comprehensive dental care, including cosmetic restoration, dentures, implants, orthodontics, oral surgery, sleep apnea, and TMJ treatment.

Our staff has expanded alongside our services, but some of our people have worked with Dr. Kasch for more than two decades.

Dr. Kasch, DMD

“Our philosophy is to treat our patients like our own family, with gentle, friendly care. Whatever we can do to make your visit more comfortable and to give you a brighter, healthier smile, we’ll strive to make it happen.”

If you have any apprehension and anxiety about going to the dentist, Dr. Kasch understands. He grew up with those exact feelings, and his childhood experience inspired the guiding principles of Sleep Dentistry of Portland.

When Dr. Kasch was seven years old, he had an unpleasant dental experience that left him very apprehensive about going to see the dentist. When he himself became a dentist, he vowed to create an environment of peace and comfort to help calm anxious patients.

The Sleep Dentistry of Portland office is designed to put patients at ease as he provides gentle and comfortable dental treatment.

Dr. Kasch completed his undergraduate and pre-dental education at Lewis & Clark College and is a graduate of Oregon Health & Science University School of Dentistry here in Portland, Oregon.

Fully trained in the latest procedures, he uses state-of-the-art technology to provide a comfortable experience and keep our prices among dentistry’s most affordable.

Dr. Kasch is active in professional organizations including the American Dental Association, Oregon Dental Association, and Multnomah County Dental Association.

He also donates his time to Dentistry From the Heart, providing free dental care to those who may not have been able to afford and receive dental treatment otherwise.

When not treating patients, Dr. Kasch enjoys collecting antiques, gardening, and spending time with his grandchildren.
