Meet Dr. Garfinkle
But most importantly, having the privilege of being involved in each patient’s health care, is a responsibility that I take very seriously. My commitment is to treat every patient as if they were a member of my own family.

What Sets Us Apart
To craft smiles that elevate the spirit.
Every Smile Matters. Our expertise and passion allow us to provide confident and healthy smiles for every individual regardless of complexity.
With attention to detail, we provide a seamless and coordinated experience in our office. “We all wear the bowtie”. Each of us brings their best attitude and effort to work toward the common goal of serving our patients with professionalism and enthusiasm. We focus on open and mature communication. We strive to learn from each other every day by accepting and providing productive feedback.
We accept the challenges that come up each day in our line of work and convert them into growth and learning opportunities. We work hard to improve constantly, each person getting better each day and being proud of their growth and searching for other ways to continue growing.
We are honored to be privileged enough to care for our patients, our lives are truly made better by the opportunity to serve our community. At the end of the day, our priority is YOU as an individual.
Garfinkle Orthodontics pledges to give back to our community of Portland and the whole state of Oregon.
We are life-long learners, taking a balanced approach to integrating new ideas into our office.
Our Values:Be honest: We treat our patients and each other with integrity. Be detail-oriented: If excellence were easy, everyone would have it. We do not cut corners in any aspect of the patient experience. Be dependable: We are accountable to our patients, our team, and ourselves. Be of service: When in doubt of what to do for a patient or teammate, “Make it right”. We are only here to make good things happen for other people. Be a solid teammate: By being respectful, honoring each other’s strengths, and communicating maturely, we can have fun, support each other, and be part of something greater together than we could accomplish alone.
We understand and appreciate the importance of a healthy and fulfilling work-life balance. When you’re a patient at Garfinkle Orthodontics, you, your oral health, and your smile are our highest priority. Dr. Judah Garfinkle and Dr. Richard Garfinkle, along with our team, are passionate about creating healthy, beautiful smiles for our patients. We’re equally as passionate about developing lasting relationships with each person we care for, getting to know them on a personal level, and becoming friends with them.
Our office is a friendly, welcoming space, where patients love to visit and we love to work. This is an environment filled with laughter and smiles, where each patient knows how important they are to us, and that we are here to ensure their orthodontic journey is one they enjoy. Creating straight, healthy teeth and amazing smiles for people we care about is truly our pleasure. We’d love to get to know you while crafting your incredible new smile, too!
