West End Dental Inc and Dr. Krippaehne’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak:
The American Dental Association has recommended and the Oregon Governor has ordered that all non-emergency procedures by dentist cease. The order is an attempt to preserve protective equipment, such as gloves and masks for the COVID-19 patients.

In an attempt to keep any dental emergency out of our hospitals' emergency departments, dental offices are encouraged to treat dental emergencies through virtual communication when possible.

In response, West End Dental Inc and Dr. Krippaehne are fully prepared to provide teledentistry to those in need, including new or established patients.

If you or someone you know has an urgent dental concern, please contact Polly (office manager) on her cell phone 503-267-4893 to schedule a teledental visit with Dr. Krippaehne.

If you would like to contact our office with a non urgent matter, please call the office at 503-224-7815. You may also fax or email with non urgent matters. Fax 503-222-0029, email

What's up with CPAP?

Posted on 10/31/2019 by Dr. James A. Krippaehne
In addition to doctor Jim's continuing work in be coming a digital smile design master, he continues to work towards completing his coursework in the American academy of dental sleep medicine that will enable him to achieve diplomate status in that organization. That level of certification is the gold standard for dental practitioners treating patients with obstructive sleep apnea.

And the next step in this journey will take him back to the McDonald's Campus in Chicago again soon. Who would have thought that this journey goes through hamburger University? Hamburger University is where McDonald's franchise owners convene to become proficient in delivering the McDonald's experiences in their own stores. There is a museum in one of the conference buildings that archives mini artifacts from the decades that spins McDonald's history. One of the more interesting items in the museum is the first Ronald McDonald clown costume that was worn by and donated by the first Ronald McDonald character, former NBC weatherman Willard Scott!
