About Us

 



Dr. Katie Ball, DMD, General Dentist

Native to the Pacific Northwest, Dr. Katie is thrilled to return home where she joins the Bling Dental! team with great enthusiasm.

Dr. Katie attended dental school at Boston University where she excelled in her clinical work and finished in the top of her class. After receiving her doctorate in dentistry, she was offered a position at a dental office in Colorado Springs, offering her the opportunity to work with a demographic she absolutely adores...children. Dr. Katie will not only give you a beautiful smile, but a healthy one as well.

Dr. Katie grew up with a fear of the dentist. This emotion helps her to be empathic to those who may be apprehensive about getting dental work done, or those who are anxious while visiting the dentist. In conjunction with this, Dr. Katie's dental work with children has helped provide her with the sensibilities to treat her patients with compassion and care, leading to their ultimate ease and comfort in her chair.

Dr. Katie comes to Oregon with a residual love for the Boston Red Sox, a longstanding passion for the Portland Trailblazers, and an obsession for the beach. She loves to travel and luckily her penchant for service has taken her abroad on three philanthropic mission trips, two in Mexico and one in Brazil, where she ultimately joined the Bling Dental! team. Additionally, she has plans to visit Haiti to work with the orphans there and help in any way possible.

If you have any questions feel free to contact Dr. Katie at 503-227-2444. She would love to speak with you about your dental needs.

 

 

 

 

Dr. Raymond, DMD, General Dentist
First of all, call me Dr. Raymond! It just sounds friendlier... which is one of the goals of Bling Dental: to do everything possible to make YOU feel more comfortable going to the dentist.

I was born and raised in Las Vegas which is from where my inspiration for Bling Dental comes. Growing up in Vegas fosters a very unique style in a person. I left the desert and moved to Portland in 1993 to attend Oregon Health Sciences University School of Dentistry. I fell in love with all of the green of the Northwest and I have never left!


I graduated from dental school in 1998... with honors. (I am not bragging about the “honors” but thought you should know if you want me to be your dentist. Honestly, how confident would you be with your doctor if he graduated at the bottom of the class?)

Another talent I have is the ability to match my clothes all by myself. Seriously, I have found this to be a very important talent which also helps when matching my patients’ teeth or helping them choose a shade for their new teeth. I am an artist, and have been able to express that part of me through dentistry. This has been a great gift to me and to my patients. As much as I love dentistry there is something I love even more….my four children (Ciera, Paris, Christian and Holden)!
They are the love of my life!

If you have any more questions, feel free to ask me. I would love to speak with you about anything that's on your mind.

 

 




Dr. Mike YesenofskiDr. Mike Yesenofski, DDS, General Dentist

Education:

University of Portland, Portland, Oregon

Creighton University School of Dentistry, 

Omaha , Nebraska 2003

 

"What I enjoy the most about being a dentist is the time I get to spend building personal connections with my clients. Not only do I get to help alleviate their dental fears, fixing what is hurting them and improving their oral health and self-confidence, I also get to be a part of their lives, just like they are a part of mine!"

 

Dr. Michael Yesenofski grew up in the friendly Western suburbs of Portland, Oregon. He attended Jesuit High School and the University of Portland, where he received his B.S. Degree, majoring in biology and minoring in chemistry. His interest in dentistry began in high school, grew in college, and eventually led him to Omaha, Nebraska.

 

Dr. Yesenofski, or Dr. Mike as he likes to be called, received his D.D.S. from Creighton University in Omaha in 2003. Although he enjoyed his time in the Midwest and received a first rate education there, he always knew that he would return to Oregon. Dr. Mike enjoys educating his patients on their oral health and treatment options, as well as working with them to overcome any dental anxiety they might have. According to Dr. Mike,

 

"Trust is the most important ingredient in the doctor-patient relationship, and it is a very rewarding feeling when the once nervous patient trusts you enough to fall asleep in your chair during a procedure."

 

Dr. Mike continues to stay updated on recent research and changes in the field of dentistry through continuing education courses, and has received advanced training in the areas of implants, aesthetic management, occlusion, and Invisalign treatment, just to name a few.

 

Dr. Mike enjoys writing and playing music, fishing, and traveling. He has traveled to Europe, Asia, and the Caribbean, and he looks forward to visiting other parts of the world.
