Adroit Dental aids tooth troubles

Doctor Kirill Smirnoff opens new practice in West Linn


by: REVIEW, TIDINGS PHOTO: CLIFF NEWELL - Dr. Kirill Smirnoff has a new staff with big smiles to support him at Adroit Dental. The staff members include Yelena Volodko, Rachelle Meyer, Lidiya Grigorash and Erika Martinez.Everything is new and fresh at Adroit Dental in West Linn. The building is new and colorful. The staff is young and diverse, and Doctor Kirill Smirnoff is starting his first practice.

“I was looking for a community that was tightly knit,” Smirnoff said. “I did research on West Linn and found out about all of the community events and the meetings. I found that West Linn would be a very nice place to settle.”

A native Oregonian and a graduate of Oregon Health and Science University Dental School, Smirnoff practiced in Washington and California for six years, then decided “the only way to do this is by having my own office.”

Adroit Dental is fully qualified to do the main operations on teeth, including oral surgery, cleaning, dental exams, braces and implants. But Smirnoff wants to stop problems before they begin.

“I want to do a lot of prevention by education and information early on and entirely do away with the need for extensive treatment or at least limit the risks,” Smirnoff said. “We can deal with problems like clenching teeth or grinding teeth to prevent tooth damage. For kids playing sports we can make sports mouth guards that can prevent trauma or permanent damage.”

The dentist office also provides incentives and promotions to help patients with their dental conditions. Plus, Adroit Dental is conveniently open early mornings, late evenings, and on two Saturdays and two Sundays each month.

Smirnoff is enthusiastic about his new enterprise.

“Everyone on the staff is brand new to this. To me, to each other and the clinic,” he said. “Each of them has a different cultural background — German, Russian, Ukrainian and Romanian. I got lucky with them. They’re going to really support me and all of our patients.”

Adroit Dental is located at 5493 Amy St., West Linn. For more information, call 503 710-9839 or visit adroitdental.com
