Everyone that has met Dr. Beers unanimously agrees that she is a perfect addition. She is passionate about dentistry and advanced technology and has a sincere enthusiasm for making connections with patients and keeping smiles healthy and happy.
Dr. Beers was born in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan and moved to Portland, OR when she was five and a half years old. She graduated Valedictorian from Cleveland High School and went on to receive her Bachelors of Science in Biochemistry from Portland State Honors College. For graduate school she didn’t venture far and received her Doctorate in Dental Medicine from Oregon Health and Science University. An avid lifetime learner, she decided to do one more year of training at an advanced education in general dentistry residency through the University of the Pacific in San Francisco and Union City, California. There she was trained in the latest preventative and endodontic technologies, periodontal surgery, oral surgery, hospital dentistry, and special needs care.
As a young child, Dr. Beers had a negative dental experience and at that time made it her goal to become a dentist so other patients didn’t have to go through what she had gone through. She is now known for her caring demeanor and strong focus on patient comfort. A huge advocate of preventative dentistry, she heartily believes that every single person deserves to keep their teeth for as long as possible and provides personalized care for each patient to help achieve that. She considers patients her dental family and is incredibly excited and grateful to be part of a team that feels the same way.
Outside of school and work, Dr. Beers has always been very passionate about the community. As a young teenager, she was in an anti-bullying performance troupe called Voices Against Violence, volunteered for Portland Community Gardens, and organized a supply run for a domestic violence shelter. As an adult, she volunteers at free dental clinics, has gone on a mission trip, and has been very involved in teaching Special Olympics athletes how to take care of their oral health. She feels very lucky to be part of a dental clinic that loves the community as much as she does.
When she isn’t working or volunteering, she spends her time in Bothell, WA with her husband and two fuzzy cats. At home, Dr. Beers loves to cook and host board game nights for her friends. A true Pacific Northwestern at heart she has recently gotten into backpacking and is looking for recommendations for good backpacking trails.
