I enjoy building long-term relationships with my patients. It is rewarding to watch their progress during treatments and see when they ultimately achieve their dental goals. I like making a difference in lives, whether it is taking a patient out of pain or giving them their ‘dream smile.’ My goal is to provide caring and superior treatment so that each visit is a great dental experience.
Dr. Fred G. Fischer, D.M.D.
Dr. Fred Fischer grew up in Michigan. He enlisted in the U.S. Air Force upon graduation from high school and was assigned to Adair Air Force Station in Corvallis. “I was very impressed with Oregon. The lush vegetation reminded me of the forests in Michigan, only on a much larger scale and without the harsh winters!” After his tour of duty in the Air Force, Dr. Fischer decided to make Oregon his home. He did his undergraduate work at Portland State University and graduated from OHSU School of Dentistry in 1976.
Dr. Fischer utilizes the up to date technology and techniques offering comfortable, high quality care to all of our patients. “I believe everyone should be given the opportunity for optimal dental health. From healthy gums and bone to solid, high quality dental restorations, we strive to give you the smile you desire and the ability to chew any food you like.”
Dr. Fischer is a member of the American Dental Association, Oregon Dental Association and Washington County Dental Society. “I also enjoy continuing education and participate in many clinical courses in order to keep abreast of changes in materials and techniques. Much has changed since I graduated and it’s really been fun to continue learning over the years.” By the way, Tualatin Dental Care does not flit from one new product or technique to another. Before we make a change we want to see a clinical track record of at least 5 years, especially for new materials.
Dr. Fischer is married to Dr. Lynn Yu and they have twin children that were born in April of 2010. Lynn is also a dentist and she is working part time. Dr. Fischer’s free time these days is primarily occupied taking care of Alana and Keith, which are quite a handful.
Dr. Fischer welcomes you to our practice as a patient and friend. He prides himself on providing high quality care in accordance with each individual’s needs and desires. He makes every effort to treat each person as he would a member of his own family.
Dr. Pari K. Samani, D.M.D.
Dr. Samani was born and raised in Iran. She completed her undergraduate work at Oregon State University, and graduated among the top of her class. She moved to Portland shortly after, where she graduated from OHSU School of Dentistry in 1994.
After working for a large group practice, Dr. Samani partnered with Dr. Fred Fischer and opened Tualatin Dental Care in 2000. Tualatin Dental Care is a private practice that utilizes state of the art techniques and equipment. “I was thrilled to have an office where I could take care of my patients with the best preventative care available.”
Dr. Samani’s work doesn’t end in the office, she keeps up to date with the evolving dental industry by continuing education courses. It is important to her to provide the best care possible for her patients. Patient comfort, anesthesia, root canal therapy and periodontics are just some of the emphasis in her classes. “I pride myself in our well-trained staff to take care of each patient with exceptional regard.”
Dr. Samani is a member of the American Dental Association, The Oregon Dental Association and the Washington County Dental Society. She is grateful that she can donate her time and services to organizations such as Dental Access and Donated Dental Services for the underprivileged.
Outside of the office Dr. Samani enjoys spending time with her family. “I have been blessed with an amazing family and great friends.” Dr. Samani is married with two grown children, a daughter and a son. In her free time she enjoys working out, meditating and skiing. Dr. Samani recently welcomed the newest addition to her family, her kitten Tala.
Dr. Samani is delighted to work with patients of all ages and strives to make each visit as comfortable as possible. “We love to share a good laugh in our office, who said the Dentist Office can’t be fun!”
