Dr. Travis Chapman

Dr. Chapman received his bachelor of science from the University of Nevada. He attended Oregon Health Science University for his Doctor of Dental Medicine. Upon graduation, he decided to serve his country and was stationed as a Naval officer in Honolulu, Hawaii where he performed rotations in Endodontics and Oral Surgery. Once his tour was completed, he continued in private practice in downtown Honolulu. After 10 years as a general dentist, Dr. Chapman decided to return to residency to study microscopic endodontics at the University of Southern California. He completed his residency as a published chief resident studying under and alongside some of the most influential Endodontists in the country.

Dr. Chapman is originally from Hood River and is happy to have his wife and two children home. An avid outdoorsman, Travis loves the lifestyle that Hood River has to offer. Skiing, windsurfing, stand up paddling, mountain biking, outrigger canoeing; are just some of activities he enjoys.

Dr. Chapman's office is state of the art. He firmly believes that utilizing technology aids in diagnosis and treatment. Zeiss microscopes are used in all treatments for microscopic precision. A digital 3D Cone Beam (also known as a CBCT machine) is paramount in assisting with technical diagnosis. GentleWave technology presents a breakthrough alternative to standard root canal treatment. In the GentleWave Procedure, a sterilized instrument delivers a vortex of procedure fluids through your tooth, cleaning debris from canal walls and thoroughly disinfecting in the places where bacteria live.  Besides all the technologies that Dr. Chapman employs for the highest quality treatment, he also has patient comfort in mind. Bose headphones with choice of music, a relaxing atmosphere, online forms, information always available and a team who is eager to cater to every patient.  His philosophy is simple, providing the highest level of care available.  Dr. Chapman will not schedule another patient during your appointed time to ensure that you are the complete center of attention.  If you would like more information, please complete the form in the contact us section and he would welcome the correspondence.

The best dentist visit I have ever had! Everybody was fabulous and made me feel very welcome and comfortable. I can't thank you all enough for everything that you have done for me and fixing my tooth!

Klickitat Patient

Dr. Chapman has the softest hands I have ever experienced. This along with his Dalai Lama-esque delivery had an extremely calming effect on me.

Hood River Patient

I will be pleased to provide a positive recommendation - you were all very professional and put me at ease (well, as much as I can be, given my dental anxiety :)).

North Bonneville Patient

Went the extra mile to squeeze me in on an emergency basis. All is well. Thanks!

Arlington Patient

A great experience overall. I was greeted by name by the front office staff. The assistant was very professional and courteous. Dr. Chapman was responsive in treating any discomfort I felt. When I left the insurance billing was explained to me and I was welcome to contact them with any questions. I received a follow-up phone call the next day to see how I was doing.

The Dalles Patient

This is the place to go - people are awesomely caring spirits - oh, the work Dr. Chapman did was superior too!!!

The Dalles Patient

One of the best dental/endodontic procedures I've ever experienced. I felt totally relaxed and as comfortable as a person undergoing dental work can be. Dr. Chapman and the entire staff were great. 10 out of 10 Rah-Rah points. Would highly recommend his service for anyone needing to have an endodontic procedure. Waterfront Endodontics rocks!

The Dalles Patient

Kudos to Dr and staff for fully explaining what was going to happen and for the follow-up. Very professional. The" what was going to happen" portion was accomplished so I would understand and the follow-up was an unexpected surprise. Taking time to call and make sure that everything was okay was very nice. Appreciate all that was done.

The Dalles Patient

Thanks for showing me the photos of the tooth, it helps to see the cause of my pain.
