About Our Office
Dr. Matthew Vogel took over Gresham Smile Designs in January 2019 from his childhood dentist, Dr. Daniel Ries. Dr. Vogel spent many hours of his childhood in Dr. Ries’s office while he and his siblings finished up routine dental visits which had sparked his interest in dentistry at a young age. After he graduated dental school in 2014, he reached out to Dr. Daniel Ries to ask what his retirement plans and they kept in contact through the years until Dr. Daniel Ries was ready to retire. He hopes to continue the same amazing quality of dentistry and warm, friendly atmosphere that Dr. Ries created for over 30 years.
We are located in a professional building that contains medical specialists, dental specialists, and an optometrist. Just off Eastman Parkway and Burnside, our address is 1201 SE 223rd Ave, Suite 140 in Gresham, OR.
