I am extremely happy with the dental care I have received from Rob Whicker and his team at Wellness Centered Dentistry.  I have had some very complex work done over many years and I am very happy with the results.  I am so happy with Wellness Centered Dentistry that I drive all the way from Portland for my dental care. I could not recommend them any higher.

Wellness Centered Dentistry is not simply a business. It is a patient-centered practice with capable, thoughtful, kind, competent professionals. Dr. Whicker has a gentle demeanor and cares deeply about doing good work. They make sure to book enough time that appointments are never rushed–appointments are not about the money, they are about the patient need! The staff are transparent and open about their recommendations (and why they are making them), and take time to answer any and all questions. They do clean, precise work, and are cheerful throughout!

BEST DENTAL APPOINTMENT EVER! Dr. Whicker and his staff were amazing from the moment I walked in the door and throughout the entire appointment! Everyone is friendly, caring, knowledgeable, and professional. This is a real QUALITY dental practice and Dr. Whicker genuinely cares about your concerns and needs. I can’t wait to tell everyone I know about Dr. Whicker! You should come see him, you won’t regret it!

Dr. Rob Whicker is by far the most skilled, gentle, communicative and caring dentist I’ve ever known. He and his assistant work together as a harmonious, integrated team. The rest of his staff that I’ve encountered are friendly, helpful and good at what they do. I’ve learned much from them all about the health of my teeth and feel inspired to take better care of them. Thank you, Dr. Whicker and staff!

Best experience ever at a dentist. It is worth the hour drive for me. I appreciate the holistic approach that addresses all my health issues. I had recently found out that I am slow to numb, hence the years of dentist trauma. The professionals in this office believed me and listened to my concerns. What a relief to find such a compassionate, competent, and caring team.

Chloe G. from Pleasant Hill, CA (Source: Yelp)


Hands-Down best experience I’ve ever had at a dentist’s office. Everyone working there is so exceptionally kind. I’ve always felt super anxious about dentist appointments, but they walked me through everything so that I felt very comfortable. They gave me a blanket, a hot towel after the procedure and a fresh flower on my way out! Such great people and atmosphere, I definitely recommend them!

I’ve been fortunate to have had really good dentists my whole life, but Dr. Whicker’s office raised the bar and for the past 11 years has exceeded my expectations. All the staff have been there for years and are highly skilled–like top-of-their-class expertise. They are always learning, keep on top of dental and medical information, are great at communication, and are super gentle and caring. I believe Julie’s cleanings and preventative care has benefited my family’s oral health greatly and the times we have needed a filling or crown, Dr. Whicker is amazing. They’ve accommodated us in working with my family’s co-therapies (orthodontia, osteopathy) and Lizzy is so helpful with insurance and billing. I can’t recommend them enough!

I am not Todd Benton. I’m Beth Green, but in any case, I am thrilled to have found a dentist who is caring, skilled and has a great office environment. All the staff was very nice and supportive. And the physical environment was okay for a person like me — with multiple chemical sensitivities. Usually, when I go to the dentist, it makes me sick because of the smells. Great experience. Bravo

Everything went as planned – appointment set, arrived on time, ready for me after just a very short wait (and a temperature scan for Covid) thorough cleaning by Christie, followed by annual exam by Dr. Whicker, picked up some Sonic toothbrush heads, floss refill, checked out easily and good to go. Doubtful we’ll be able to do as well to find a new dental practice when we move out of state next month, but we know what professionalism looks like. Thank you and continued success.

My experience at Wellness Centered Dentistry was very positive. The whole process was intelligent and collaborative. I felt my understanding and objectives were taken seriously and were incorporated into the dialogue. I’m very happy at the prospect of working with all the people at Dr. Whicker’s office. I should mention that the Northwest Coast art in the waiting room was a wonder

Yesterday my wife and I had an appointment with Christie. We usually come every three months. Because of the Covid pandemic, we hadn’t come for a hygiene appointment for six months. We go to any appointments with trepidation because there is always a risk. But our hygiene appointments are important, and Christie always does a wonderful job of cleaning our teeth and explaining about necessary home dental care. Thank you very much Christie, Dr. Whicker, Angie, and Lizzie! You are all heroes of the Covid pandemic!

APPAULSE FOR WELLNESS CENTERED DENTISTRY. What an amazing practice Dr. Whicker has created in Eugene! I first went to Dr. Whicker seeking removal of toxic amalgam fillings that been in my teeth since I was a child/young adult. They were cracked and contained mercury. Seeking to be healthy I wanted a dentist who would remove and safely dispose the old filling material, replacing them with safe ceramic restorations. Besides the care for health and safety, what additionally impressed me about Dr. Whicker is how he makes me feel important by listening to me and answering my myriad of questions. He also backs up his excellent work. Plus his staff is attentive taking effort to make me cozy and comfortable for long procedures. To increase my satisfaction here there are two extras at Wellness Centered Dentistry. The waiting area is inviting and non-medical with a feel for the natural world of the Pacific Northwest. Then there is a lovely surprise after any visit!

Christie was friendly and explained as she went along – didn’t just reposition my head. She was gentle with the gum measurements that have hurt in the past. I appreciated being given choices – it felt like I was participating in my care not just enduring it. The experience was very positive in a stressful day. As always, the staff was VERY friendly . Thanks for the additional help & follow up call, Lizzie.

I have a LOT of dental work to be done. I decided to go with Dr. Whicker even though he is not a participating dentist in my network, because if I am going to go thru all of this, I want it done right. I also require a supportive and friendly atmosphere; which he has created. The difference in professionalism between this office and the other two offices I considered and visited before beginning this work was tangible. Dr Whicker gave me multiple injections to numb my mouth before beginning work, and I DIDN’T feel any pain from the injections. Because I have had chronic pain for 14 years I am over-sensitive, so not feeling pain from the injection was huge for me. I was also pleasantly surprised after the procedure, to have only minor discomfort. After years of sub-standard dental work, Wellness Centered Dentistry is a welcome relief .

My first experience with this dental practice was a free consultation with Dr Whicker regarding a tooth with an old root canal.. Dr. Whicker was kind, listened well, and came to the consultation well prepared. He didn’t rush me and took time to review my X-rays before he came to the consultation. He also gave me multiple treatment options and didn’t seem bothered by my questions. I’ve had many other dental experiences where the dentist spent much less time with me, yet I was not charged for the consultation. A few weeks after the consultation, I had a separate cleaning and exam which were also positive experiences. Christie, the dental hygienist, was personable, VERY experienced, and she gave me several new suggestions on how to improve the health of my teeth. I was also given several free samples so I could try out new products.

I never thought I would find a Dentist who would genuinely care about my needs and wants.  Dr. Whicker took time to listen to my concerns, clearly explained his recommendations, and answered all of my questions.  I never once felt rushed in & rushed out.  I feel like I have finally found my “forever Dental home”!  I would recommend Dr. Whicker’s office to anyone!

Antony B. from Desert Hot Springs, CA (Source: Yelp)


What a fantastic dentist. After researching all the options in Eugene, OR I chose this one because of his desire to use the best materials for any dental work. Think of him as an organic, vs. a conventional farmer. Instead of offering you the super cheap pesticide chemical-ridden tomato, he has gone out of his way to find the best quality organic tomato from an organic farm stand that tastes delicious and is actually good for you. There is a cost difference, but you are getting a different service. This one will support your health and immune system. And (as a recent transplant from Los Angeles), his pricing is really not that crazy at all. So, if you are sold in his method of practicing, you wait until you visit. The staff are incredibly friendly, you are made to feel super welcome. When you are in the chair, everything Is explained to you in words you can understand AND they go out of their way to ensure you are comfortable. The facilities are super clean and spotless. (I have seen some awful dental practices in my time) and finally, when you are all done and ready to leave, I was offered the carnation in the picture. Now I cannot guarantee they’ll give you a flower every time, but for a business to go above and beyond like that, they deserve a solid review explaining how much they care that you have a good experience. I am a paying customer with no affiliation to them. Go support them and your health of you and your family. You will not regret it.

I have had excellent treatment by Dr. Whicker. He seems to have the latest equipment for patient comfort and takes an easy approach to recommending the use of it. Everything possible was done for my comfort, including my requests for special measures. I have found him easy to work with and knowledgeable about my other health issues which impact my dental health. The outcomes have been good with minimal discomfort. The staff is friendly, kind and helpful. The office is clean and pleasantly decorated.

I am very happy with my recent visit and I highly recommend giving wellness centered dentistry a try, you will not be disappointed. I had amalgams removed and I don’t believe anything could have went any better. They stayed after hours to get the job done and didn’t make me feel like it was an inconvenience. Everyone was very nice to interact with. It was also a completely pain free experience.

Marla J. from Cottage Grove, OR (Source: Yelp)


I feel so fortunate to have found Dr. Whicker. Both he and their wonderful hygienist, Julie are so gentle. I’ve had some serious treatments there, the kind you would expect to guarantee pain for days, but I hardly experienced any. I could go on and on, but fear I’ll sound like a paid advertisement. These folks don’t need to pay people to say good things. They are fantastic and I highly recommend.

Best dentist office I have had and will ever have! Throughout the years I would reluctantly have to off and on go elsewhere because of insurance coverage since they’re a holistic office but I always end up coming back when I can. Very attentive to your comfort. Today Dr. Whicker after a lengthy filling appt. even called to check on my well being at the end of the day which was beyond appreciated by me. Exceptional patient care by all their staff starting with sweet lizzie upfront.. You really don’t get this level of care at most places. You even get sent home with a flower! Thanks Wellness Centered Dentistry! ♥️

I became a patient one year ago, and at that time Dr. Whicker did extensive work in my mouth, as I had broken teeth, receding gums, in addition to fillings, crowns and composite veneers that had failed. Nearly every tooth had an issue. I am so extremely happy with his work, skill and precision. He uses the best and safest dental materials available in dentistry, and that’s exactly what I was hoping to find. Having my teeth restored by Dr. Whicker very soon contributed towards a substantial improvement in my health in regards to Multiple Sclerosis and my immune system. I can’t recommend Dr. Whicker and all of his staff, enough. They are the true experts, and are an extremely caring group as well.

Because of my genetics and pre WCD dental health history, I consider myself something of a “professional patient” at Wellness Centered Dentistry. I feel like Dr.Whicker and the staff there are a divine gift that I am so happy to have in my life. My overall health and of course my level of jaw pain are incredibly improved and my life is better for it. In addition to having huge metal fillings replaced, Dr Whicker has done a dozen allergen-free crowns (I am allergic to a material found in regular crowns), repaired my broken front teeth to perfection, and massively improved my daughter’s smile with a set of perfectly applied porcelain veneers.They have always treated me with respect, kindness, gentleness and care. My teeth are beautiful and healthy thanks to their expertise. I will stay with WCD for the length of the business!

Thanks for the great care and service! I appreciate the professional and caring staff. They have been so helpful in accommodating the unique dental needs of my family. They exceed my expectations! My favorite part about my cleanings is the moist, hot towel they offer at the end! I recommend Dr. Wicker to friends and Family!

As you know I have been in a lot of dental offices….the attitude of staff is super important, esp. when the client doesn’t want to go along with protocol. WE have a lot of reasons to NOT “go along with conventional dental protocol” ie mercury etc. I liked the attitude of the staff, I felt like I could say almost anything without eye rolling and cold shouldering. Also the atmosphere of non scurry hurry was comforting. I also like the spaciousness of the office.

Dr. Whicker has a gentle touch, an excellent chair side manner and thoroughly explained the procedure beforehand. Dr. Whicker called me after hours to ensure all was well on the day of my procedure. I always feel comfortable and know that I am in good hands. Heather, Angie, Lizzie and Julie are very courteous and professional!

Dr. Whicker and his excellent staff are truly passionate in providing exceptional care. I’ve had a lot of dental surgeries, root canals & implants in my lifetime. I never felt pain with Dr. Whicker’s skill in the novocaine injection. Thank you Dr. Whicker! His explanations along the way during each procedure, be it a cavity or crown was Greatly appreciated. It eases the unknown and makes all the difference! At one point, I felt a bit claustrophobic and they stopped to make adjustments. Their concern for my comfort put me at ease and the whole Dental experience was positive. Their Professional care is exemplary!
