Welcome to our Blog!

Heritage Family Dental is excited to announce the launch of our official dental blog, where we will be posting information we hope you’ll find useful and informative, including hygiene tips, news from the latest in the dental industry, and office updates from our doctors and team.

We know that staying informed about oral health, dental treatments, and preventive care is what creates happy and healthy patients. Mark O'Hara, DDS, and Tyler Clark, DMD, and our Eugene dental team have provided this blog as a platform to improve patient education and encourage healthier smiles all-around. We want you to make empowered and confident decisions about your oral health, which is where our website and blog become useful tools.

You can stay up-to-date with our blog by returning to this page periodically to read the latest posts from our team and doctors. If you’ve found the information we’ve added to be beneficial, we encourage you to share content with the social media icons found on each post. If you have questions about anything posted on our blog, please feel free to call our office for more information.

Here’s to your best oral health ever!
