Meet Dr. Eilers

Dr. Mark Eilers was born and raised in Portland, Oregon. After graduating from West Linn High School, he moved to Bend, Oregon to play in the mountains and attend school at Central Oregon Community College. After spending two years in Bend, Mark moved to Bozeman, Montana to finish his degree in premedical sciences and continue playing outdoors. After college, Mark decided to continue his family legacy and apply to dental school. He received his dental school education from the renowned Oregon Health Sciences University School of Dentistry and graduated in 2005. He is the 7th dentist in five generations of his family. Dr. Eilers is dedicated to providing the best quality cosmetic and general dentistry in a comfortable and caring environment. He takes pride in building long-term, trusting relationships with patients and community.

While in school at OHSU, Mark met his wife Laurissa Champion. Laurissa continued on at OHSU as a specialist in Periodontics. They have a wonderful daughter Harper, who just turned 1 and three dogs: an English Shepherd (Greta), a German Shepherd (Marley) and a crazy Golden Retriever (Rusty).  During his free time, he spends at much time as possible outdoors with family and friends.

Dr. Eilers has been involved in athletics his entire life. His love of sports got him involved in sports dentistry right after dental school. He became involved with the American Academy of Sports Dentistry in 2006 and has been a team dentist for the Portland Winterhawks and many local High Schools ever since. In 2012 Dr. Eilers was accepted to a two year Fellowship in Forensic Odontology at the University of Texas San Antonio. He spends a great deal of time helping with local law enforcement as well as Doernbecher and Randall Childrens Hospital doing bitemark analysis, age estimation and identification. He does this work free of charge as a way to help the community he knows and loves.
