Dr. Mike, as he is known far and wide, has been enthusiastically providing for the dental needs of his patients since graduating from Oregon Health and Sciences Dental School in 1984. The main focus of his practice has been John Day and the Grant County area. But after answering an ad for a “dentist needed” in Gilliam County in 1985, Dr. Mike added a Condon office to his busy practice, and has been driving the five hour round trip, once a week, for 28 years.
To Dr. Mike’s pleasant surprise, the people of Gilliam County have become loyal and interesting patients. He always looks forward to his weekly trips north, and puts in long hours on the days he is in town. Dr. Mike has stories too numerous to count of road conditions and wildlife encounters that would dissuade anyone who is faint of heart. In addition Dr. Mike is always happy to share a story or two about the many adventures of his family of five kids.
Tuesday’s are Dr. Mike’s regularly scheduled days at the South Gilliam Health Center. Hours are 9 am until evening. Every third Monday of the month has been added to the schedule recently. A complete hygiene program is also part of Dr. Mike’s Condon practice, with Connie Ramsey R.D.H providing cleanings for patients of all ages. New patients are always welcome!!! Call (541) 384-2725 to make an appointment or leave a message. For emergencies please call the John Day office at (541)-575-2725.
