Meet Our Doctors
Dr. PK Clark
Dr. PK Clark is a practicing dentist, lecturer, and surgical mentor. He received his DMD from Oregon Health Science University and maintained a successful private practice in the Portland, Oregon area for nearly 20 years.
After years of experience in his own growing practice, and in teaching dentists one-on-one, Dr. Clark saw the immense change implantology brings to general dentists and their patients. He saw a need to be filled and founded the unique WhiteCap Institute, which has allowed him to spend time building relationships and teaching on subjects he is most passionate about.
To continue expanding his skills and knowledge, Dr. Clark also maintains an implants-only practice in Utah. Both the clinical practice and the Institute are driven by the desire to offer exceptional patient-centered care.
Dr. Clark is also an active member in the dental community. He contributes to several societies, including the International Congress of Oral Implantology, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, the Academy of General Dentistry, and the American Dental Association.
Dr. Riley Clark
Dr. Riley Clark has been passionate about dentistry for decades. He began his discovery of dentistry as a young high school student. He was the janitor in his father’s practice in Portland, Oregon. In the early hours of the morning he would go to the office with his mom and clean every corner of the office in preparation for patient care, from bathrooms to treatment rooms, he became well-versed with dental offices! He later went on to be a dental assistant and work in the front office. His real passion for dentistry developed as he watched patients’ lives change through compassionate dental care. He noticed most patients seemed more like great friends with his dad than clients visiting a business. Likewise, he saw his father thoroughly enjoying what he did all day. It was compelling to witness the most magical thing of dentistry, the doctor-patient relationship. The doctor-patient relationship is what motivates Dr. Clark to offer the highest care in dental implantology.
Dr. Clark received his bachelor’s degree at Portland State University. He then attended Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio for his DMD degree. During dental school, Dr. Clark finished his requirements ahead of schedule. This allowed him to attend advanced training in IV sedation at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
For the last several years, Dr. Clark has been practicing at the prestigious WhiteCap Institute, a dental implant training center, in Utah. During those years, he performed thousands of implant surgeries and advanced bone grafting procedures. Because he excelled in clinical implantology, he was asked to begin teaching and mentoring doctors for WhiteCap. Hundreds of doctors can attend Dr. Clark’s courses and learn the latest techniques and protocols for implant surgery and restoration. Today, Dr. Clark lectures around the country for various dental companies and dental societies in implant dentistry. He is best-known for his use of technology and digital workflows of implant dentistry.
Dr. Clark and his amazing wife, Kolt, have three energy-filled daughters. When not serving patients, he enjoys exploring southern Oregon with his family. His favorite thing to do is to cuddle with his family on the couch and watch Hallmark Christmas movies!
