Kendall T. Pyper, DDS
Kendall Pyper was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. He attended Ricks College in Rexburg, Idaho earning an Associate Degree, then moved on to Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah where he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Instrumental Music Education, graduating in April of 2000. Although he enjoyed teaching bands and choirs in Oregon public schools, state budget cuts in 2003 caused him to lose his job and forced him to recognize the instability of his profession. Deciding to seek a more stable career to better provide for his family, and through the influence of some close friends, Kendall decided to research the dental profession.
The more he learned about dentistry, the more he was fascinated with it. After spending a year and a half in night school completing prerequisite courses at Portland Community College, he was accepted to the prestigious University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry, in San Francisco, California. He received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in June 2008 and has worked in Oregon as a dentist ever since. He loves his chosen profession and loves helping people have healthy and beautiful smiles.
As a dentist, Dr. Pyper believes first and foremost that every patient is entitled to a comfortable experience in the dental office and the highest quality dental care available. He is committed to staying up to date with the latest advances in dentistry, implementing the newest techniques, materials, and technology as they are proven effective in clinical evidence-based studies. His patients also appreciate his gentle touch and genuine concern.
Kendall and his wife, Lainie, have five children. They enjoy their family immensely, spending as much time together as possible. As residents of Silverton, they also enjoy engaging in community events. The Pypers are active members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, where they love participating in its various activities. Dr. Pyper also enjoys playing and listening to good music, spending time in the great outdoors, watching and playing sports, and tinkering with computers.
