Dr. Douglas A. Rust – Dentist at Paradigm Dental

Dr. Douglas A. Rust is a Portland native, and he went to Portland State University to get his undergraduate degree in 1973. He also graduated from Oregon Health and Science University Dental School in 1980. Dr. Rust is in his fourth decade of caring for patients in the Beaverton and now Lake Oswego area.

In his youth, Dr. Rust wanted to be a dentist because he loved helping people, and he wanted to make a career out of it. At OHSU, he was privileged to work with exceptional teachers and mentors who stressed the importance of careful service and also excellence in dentistry.

As a general dentist, Dr. Rust practices a wide variety of dental procedures and techniques that lets him serve a huge range of patient needs. He offers a number of services, both typical and specialized, ranging from fillings to crowns, root canals, bridges, surgical extractions, etc., but Dr. Rust tries to escape old, aged methods as much as possible. He especially enjoys learning about modern advances and training that allows him to provide great service across the range of patient needs he’s presented with.

Early in his career, Dr. Rust became certified in straight-wire orthodontics and has also kept up with the latest advances in clear aligner technology. Embracing new technology, he moved away from straight-wire treatments and has done well over 300 cases of Invisalign and Sure Smile.

Dr. Rust’s favorite thing about his job is that he gets to help people take care of themselves. If someone comes in with a chipped tooth, he repairs it. If someone comes in with a toothache, he gets to take care of it. When he comes into the office every day, he has the opportunity to help people improve their smiles and improve their health. He’s excited by the prospect of improving technology in the dental industry, particularly the use of lasers and 3D printing.
