Dr. Vashti Bueso
Meet Portland Dentist Dr. Vashti Bueso - Portland Cosmetic Dentistry
Dr. Bueso was born and raised on a small family run farm in rural northern California. Seeking a bigger community, she moved to the Portland metro area in 2008 to attend Pacific University's Dental Hygiene program. After four years of expanded practice in dental hygiene, she met her now husband, Antonio, an Emergency Medicine Physician. The two put together a plan for Dr. Bueso to pursue her doctorate in dental surgery in the opportunity state of Texas. Dr. Bueso complete her post-baccalaureate requirements at Portland State University, and then Abilene Christian University before being accepted into The University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston. In Houston Dr. Bueso showed deeper interest and invested her time to research in the areas of Endodontics and Periodontal surgery. Her total dedication to her studies awarded her the top honor and induction into the National Dental Honor Society, Omicron Kappa Upsilon (OKU) and she was the top ranked girl, graduating 3rd in her class. After 6 years in Texas, the Buesos were excited to return home to Portland. Prior to joining our team Dr Bueso has been practicing general dentistry in the city of Gladstone. In her spare time, she can be found outdoors with her two German Shorthaired Pointers, Monte (Old Faithful) and Pepper (Pepita).
When we asked her, why she chose dentistry, she responded with the following:
I have had my own fair share of needing to rely on dentists and dental specialists. Because of my own ordeals, I have extra vigor towards my practice and continuing education. I believe in the power of quality dentistry and I am passionate about being able to make it a positive experience for my patients. I love working hard to win people over who have had previous negative experiences and to exceed their expectations with beautiful and functional dentistry.
