Once a month Dr. O’Bryan travels to Portland and other areas to train other dentists in the most advanced technologies in dentistry.

In addition to training other dentists, Dr O’Bryan speaks to dental societies and National Dental classes about the advances in dentistry and his integration of this dental technology into a small town practice.  His training of the Cone Beam CT technology and placement of his own implants from extraction to final restoration have been published in national and international dental magazines.

He has completed hundreds of hours in advanced training for cosmetic restorations, implant placement and grafting, full mouth rehabilitations and many other areas of dentistry that are often referred out to specialists.

Active in the Coos Bay Yacht Club on Tenmile Lake, he races a Geary 18 sailboat with his oldest daughter and wife. The coast of Oregon has become home over the last seven years and Dr O’Bryan has continued to become an integral part and supporter of our community here on the South Coast!

Dr. James Gordan

Dentist
Dr. James Gordan
After 20 years of owning a practice in Atlanta, Dr. Gorman relocated with his family to Coos Bay. He received his DDS degree at Emory University – a prestigious private school on the East Coast that is consistently ranked as one of the nation’s best universities by U.S. News & World Report.

Dr. Gorman’s passion for providing patients with top-notch dental care stems from his experience as a child. He was picked on constantly for having severely crooked teeth until he received braces at the hands of a gentle, caring dentist. This life-changing experience is what motivated Dr. Gorman to become a dentist, to touch people’s lives as his was touched, and to provide the same joy and confidence to his patients that his dental experience provided him.

For over 20 years, Dr. Gorman has offered a variety of dental health services in a private practice setting. He has trained with the world’s foremost experts in both cosmetic and restorative dentistry, was awarded the Psi Omega Dental Fraternity Outstanding Achievement Award, and is a proud recipient of Emory University’s Preventive Dentistry Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Community. He is a firm believer that practicing prevention is more responsible than waiting for a problem to develop. Dr. Gorman was also the team dentist for the Professional Women’s Soccer team, the Atlanta Beat.

In addition to professional athletes, Dr. Gorman’s patients also include supermodels seen on Good Morning America, MTV, in national magazines such as Glamour, 17, GQ, and People; local news anchors; and weather personalities. Mostly, however, his practice is made up of nice families looking for a personal, trusting relationship with a caring dentist.

Dr. Gorman’s professional memberships include the:
– American Dental Association
– Oregon Dental Association
– S.W. Oregon Dental Society

Dr. Gorman’s lovely wife, Tamara, is a dental hygienist who received her degree from NYU. She is fluent in English, Portuguese, French, and Spanish. The Gormans’ love spending time with their daughter, Irene, and hiking. They can’t wait to explore all the beauty the Oregon has to offer.
