Our Portland Dentists

Dr. David Mussone

In 2006 Dr. David Mussone graduated from the Marquette University School of Dentistry. Dr. Mussone completed his general dentistry residency as a member of the Naval Medical Center in Portsmouth, Virginia. The next 4 years were spent in active duty as a US Naval Dental Officer with the 7th Marine Corps.

In 2010 Dr. Mussone moved to Coos Bay Oregon. After some years in his own private practice, he missed the collegiate atmosphere of working with other general dentists and decided to move to the Portland area. Dr. Mussone joined a locally founded group dental practice for several years before finding the right fit for his true passion, helping phobic patients that had a greater need for his extensive skill set. As a member of the Sleep Dentistry of Portland dentist team he found he could focus on helping these patients achieve the dental health they had been missing for years through the use of his sedation dentistry expertise.

There is nothing he loves more than connecting with his patients and providing a non-judgmental experience to facilitate them getting back to a healthy long-lasting smile. Dr. Mussone brings his wide skill set to Sleep Dentistry of Portland, from full mouth reconstruction, root canals, and implant restoration to routine fillings and dentures.
