Keith R. Berg, DMD
Dentist in Medford, Oregon

My profession allows me to identify and solve patients' problems and concerns. I receive a great amount of satisfaction in this process. The continual challenges of dentistry, both skill and learning, motivate me. However, the "icing on the cake" is being able to accomplish the above while in the presence of an outstanding staff and wonderful patients.

Education and Continuing Education
In my youth, I went to Medford schools before attending the University of Oregon
for my Undergraduate Degree. I then attended Oregon Health and Science University School of Dentistry.

Although my dental education is complete, I know that in order to provide the highest level of comfort and quality, I must continually educate myself on evolving methods and technologies. As a part of my continuing education, I have been president of the Southern Oregon Dental Research Group for the past 25 years. I also participate in 30 to 50 hours per year of continuing education in all phases of dentistry, with an emphasis on implants, Invisalign, cosmetics and dental medicine. It is my obligation to stay current on all phases of dentistry in order to ensure that my patients are receiving the best care possible from my practice.

Professional Info
For the past 40+ years, I have had the opportunity to interact daily with wonderful people, patients and staff. I help people attain a state of health, comfort, function and aesthetics, and in fact I've completed special training in Bioesthetic Dentistry and have achieved Level IV (highest level) certification. Providing a better quality of life for my patients is what makes my job so rewarding!

I realize that each person is an individual with unique needs and desires, and I strive to cater to each patient's unique needs. I love getting to know my patients and helping them achieve their individual goals.

I like to be able to teach patients about how to best care for their mouth. Many people do not realize that the foundation of dental health is in the gums. Find a way to consistently clean between your teeth and save them for a lifetime!

Personal
I am a native of Medford, and have lived here all my life. I love serving the people and families of my hometown community. I have two grown children, one of whom is a dentist in Pittsburgh, PA! I am also a proud grandfather of five. In my spare time, I am an oil artist and musician. I once had a bluegrass band and played banjo!

Helping to Protect Dental Crowns for Longevity
When you get a dental crown, it is important that you learn how to take care of it. If you take good care of it, you will get more years of use out of it than if you did not take care of it. There are a few things that can be done to help make crowns last as long as possible. Here are some of the things that you can do to increase how long your crowns last in your mouth.

Helping Crowns Last as Long as Possible

First, you need to make sure that you are keeping your mouth clean and healthy. This means that you need to keep brushing twice each day. Plus, you need to floss at least once per day. When you are done flossing, you should also rinse your mouth thoroughly with mouthwash. Then, make sure you come in and see us every six months.

Next, you need to make sure you are not chewing on anything that is not good for you. This includes ice, pens, pencils, and similar items. Chew on foods, drink your beverages nicely, and do not put excess pressure on that crown.

Finally, you want to make sure that you get checked out for bruxism. That is when you grind or clench your teeth. Doing this puts a lot of strain on your teeth, especially a crown. It can cause your crown to crack or even break off.

If you are not sure what other things you can do to help keep your crown healthy, ask us at your next appointment!
