DaveDavid E. Nevills, DMD

When Dr. Nevills opened his dental practice in 1983, his vision was to provide families and individuals with the highest possible quality of personal, professional care. By carrying out this vision every day, he and his staff have earned the trust of the many patients they serve.  With his characteristic concern for the whole person, he has built long term relationships with his peers, his patients and their families.

Dr. Nevills is a graduate of the School of Dentistry at Oregon Health Science University. He participates in various regional quality control initiatives, and belongs to the Oregon Dental Association, the American Dental Association and the National Foundation of Dentistry for the Handicapped.

He is committed to giving back to the community through donated dental services, and continues to partner with Western Farm Workers Association in providing dental care for farm workers and their families.  He participates in various community service projects, church activities and social events, and has traveled overseas with mission groups to China, Korea, and Ethiopia.

Dr. Nevills and his wife, Jean, have four grown children. He enjoys community theater, the Hillsboro Hops, Trail Blazers basketball and Seahawks football, and over the years has coached many youth baseball and basketball teams.  Disneyland has always been one of his favorite places, but hiking, fishing, gardening and gathering friends and family for conversation and backyard fun keeps him young.
