Dr. Michael C. Gerhards DDS






After graduating from University of Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco, I moved to Portland, Oregon taking a position as associate professor at OHSU for the Geriatric Dentistry Program. I also became an associate with Dr. Harold Byrne. By 1981, I had established my private practice on NE 33rd and Knott. In 1994, I moved to my present location in Beaumont Village. My family and I have thoroughly enjoyed all these years in Portland and over that time we have developed valuable, longtime relationships with our patients and their families.

Since 1974, Dr. Gerhards is a member of:

  • American Dental Association
  • Oregon Dental Association
  • Multnomah County Dental Society

For many years, Dr. Gerhards has donated Dental Services to the Donated Dental Services Program here in Portland, Oregon.
