Meet Our Orthodontist

Dr. Shannon Schober welcome to the team! Oregon Family Orthodontics is excited to introduce our new orthodontist. “Dr. Shannon Schober in July 2022!” We have complete trust and confidence that our Orthodontic & Pediatric Families will be in great hands.

“Dr. Schober was born and raised in Portland, Oregon. Having lived in Tennessee, Montana, Alaska, and South Dakota, and traveled to Japan, Ecuador, Greece, and Australia, she is excited to return to Oregon and enjoy the beautiful Pacific Northwest outdoors.

Dr. Schober earned her D.M.D. and Masters of Science in Orthodontics at OHSU in Portland so, naturally, the Oregon dental community is close to her heart and she is eager for the opportunity to serve Eugene. She also speaks Japanese, enjoys playing and composing for the piano, and loves karaoke!”
