David J. Cavano, DDS

Diplomate, American Board of Pediatric Dentistry

After graduating from Dental School, Dr. Cavano began his career with the Public Health Service as a general dentist for the Navajo Nation in northern New Mexico. The extent and severity of dental disease affecting the pediatric population inspired Dr. Cavano to specialize in Pediatric Dentistry. Upon completing his residency in New York, Dr. Cavano joined the Pediatric Dental Group in 2001. Currently, Dr. Cavano serves as the Oral Health consultant for the Wellness Advisory Committee for Portland Public Schools. He is the past president of the Oregon Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, as well as an active member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the Oregon Dental Association, and the Multnomah and Washington County Dental Societies.

Dr. Cavano enjoys raising his two daughters with his wife, Theresa. He is a past volunteer and coach with the Adaptive Sports Association as well as Special Olympics. When time allows, his many interests include cycling, skiing, back country touring and photography.
