Meet Dr. Ravassipour
As an orthodontist, I have the greatest job in the world: making people smile for a lifetime. I get to hang out with kids, teens, and adults, getting to know them and their families, watching them grow, and seeing how orthodontics changes their lives and improves their confidence and self-esteem.
Staying active in the community has always been a passion of mine, and plays an important role in my practice. I am currently the president of Medford Rotary (2013-2014) and cofounder of the Rogue Run. I am also a generous supporter of area schools, churches, local organizations and patient fundraisers.
I grew up in beautiful Wenatchee, Washington and got my Bachelors of Science at the University of Puget Sound. I received my Doctorate in Dental Surgery followed by my Masters in Orthodontics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, graduating in the top 5% of my class. GO TARHEELS!
In 2003 I married the love of my life, a rare Rogue Valley native Kelly. We feel very fortunate to be able to raise our children, Reid and Piper in this beautiful community.
Meet Dr. Woods
What an incredible privilege it is to be an orthodontist. My own orthodontic journey began in beautiful Bend, OR where I grew up and graduated from Bend Senior High School. I continued to Eugene to attend the University of Oregon and Robert D. Clark Honors College where I quickly became an avid duck fan. After college I continued to Portland to attend Oregon Health & Science University for my dental training and orthodontic specialty. While in dental school I was awarded Omicron Kappa Upsilon Honors Society status for the top 10% of students and the “International Outstanding Leadership” award. I was an active participant in Student Research, Student Council and the founder of the Student Professionalism and Ethics Association for OHSU, dedicated to maintaining the integrity and morality of this incredible profession.
The perfect end to this story for Bend, Eugene and Portland is to settle down in the Rogue Valley. Although, I will be honest it doesn’t really feel like settling, as I am constantly climbing mountains, hiking, running, backpacking, and canoeing to keep up with the boundless energy of my husband and daughter. You can bet that every moment of my free time is spent outside exploring and enjoying this incredible community. While I played on the tennis team in high school I have yet to challenge Dr. Ravassipour to a singles tourney!
We live in an awe inspiring state with wonderful people, and are alive during some very exciting changes to braces. The advances in technology, efficiency and comfort are astounding to me, and we love to pass those along to our patients and their families. I can’t wait to meet you and to be a part of your orthodontic journey, wherever you are starting.
