Meet the doctors


 aNDREW Edwards MS DDS

My philosophy of dentistry is that great dentistry and a great, fun atmosphere should not be mutually exclusive! I know that a lot of people have fears about dentistry but in my experience, if you look people in the eye, explain everything that's going on and treat people with the respect (which is what I expect when I go to my physician) then it shouldn't be scary or intimidating. I also believe that one of the worst things in the world is a dental office where you can feel the tension when you walk in the door, set to the not so soothing sound of elevator music! We always have great music playing and the only reason your mouth should hurt when you leave is because of laughing too much!  I am really proud of what we are building here and I think it shows in how happy my team is and how happy our patients are.


I am so excited to be a part of Deschutes River Dentistry!  As an Olympia native and graduate of Capital High School it feels good to be back home. As for a little background on myself, I am married to my magnificent wife Tracey, and have a son, Emerson, and a daughter Scarlett. I also have a firecracker of a Boston Terrier named Henry. I received my undergraduate education at Boise State University, where I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in History. From there I attended the University of Washington School of Dentistry where I graduated with honors and was inducted into Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society. I received a number of awards and scholarships while in dental school. I have also completed a General Practice Residency at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas/Southern Nevada Veterans Administration Hospital System, where I completed advanced training in a number of areas of dentistry. In my spare time I enjoy cycling, skiing, hiking and camping with my family. I love Western Washington and feel honored to have the opportunity to move back home and serve such a great community!
