Compassionate Dentistry in a New Location

February 2019

Compassionate DentistrySara Riechers of Compassionate Dentistry celebrated her ninth year in business by moving to a new location at 130 NW D Street in Grants Pass. Sara and her husband Aaron moved to the Rogue Valley in 2008 after completing her dental residency in Yakima, Washington.

“I have family in Roseburg, so we were glad to be closer,” Sara said. “I started working at the Community Health Center for two years before starting my own practice in 2010, right after my son Daxon was born. We also have a daughter Maelle, who is four.”

Sara grew up with a nurse and a wildlife biologist for parents and was interested in science from an early age. “I decided to be a medical professional at age 13, and as I explored career options, I loved the idea of dentistry, where I would get to see patients not just when they are sick,” she said. “As a dentist, I get to keep people healthy as well as help them when things go wrong. I also get to treat families and watch kids grow over time. It has been a great family-oriented career, both for me and my staff.”

Compassionate Dentis-try is a private-practice dental office that provides quality, patient-centered dental care in a positive, compassionate and efficient manner.

“We like to take time with each individual patient and discover what their wants and needs are,” Sara said. “We realize that each person comes with different backgrounds, values and expectations. We tailor each experience to the individual. Some patients come with a history of dental fears or a limited budget, and we do everything we can to find the best options for each patient.”

Recognizing that many people have some fears of dentistry, Sara works hard to offer a pain-free experience. “We offer sedation dentistry, and there is no need to be embarrassed or ashamed,” she said. “We love making appointments easy and comfortable so that patients can get the care they need to maintain good oral health.”

In addition to dental services, the office also carries Sonicare toothbrushes and xylitol products in house.

Sara invites everyone to come to their open house on Thursday, February 28. For more information, you can call 541-956-2177. The webpage is, and you can see them on Facebook.
