Dr. Williams Serves His Patients, His Family, & Others Around the World

Dr. Gregory A. Williams has dedicated his life to sharing his time and talents with his family, the patients at his thriving dental practice, and others around the world through his humanitarian efforts.

When it comes to his patients, Dr. Williams is committed to providing compassionate, comprehensive dental care. Dr. Williams began his dental practice in the Tigard/King City area in 1998 after graduating from Oregon Health & Science University with high honors.

He continues a commitment of lifelong learning through his membership in professional associations, including:

As a top dentist in Tigard, Dr. Williams also serves as a Master with the Academy of General Dentistry, which is an honor fewer than 1% of dentists achieve. He is also a Fellow with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists and is in the process of becoming a Diplomate with the American Board of Oral Implantology/Implant Dentistry (ABOI/ID). As an adjunct clinical instructor and student mentor at OHSU, Dr. Williams works with and instructs dental students on a regular basis.

Dr. Williams has also developed a passion for humanitarian work at home and abroad. For years, he hosted one of the largest clinics in Washington County during the national Give Kids A Smile campaign. Since 2005, Dr. Williams has traveled annually to remote areas of the world including most of Central America, Peru, Ecuador, Samoa, India, and Nepal providing dentistry to thousands of people, many of whom have never seen a dentist.

Shortly after one of these trips was when he and Dr. Scott Dyer co-founded Wide Open Humanitarian, Inc. Established in 2007, this not-for-profit organization brings dental relief to the poorest of the poor throughout the world, instructs the dentists in these remote areas regarding practical techniques, and helps pave the way for future organizations to set up ongoing clinics.

Dr. Williams has been married to his lovely wife, Michelle, for over 30 years. Together they are raising the youngest of their seven children and recently welcomed their first grandchild. They can often be found coaching youth soccer or basketball, as well as cheering at their children’s sporting and musical events. They enjoy time as a family through activities such as swimming, hiking, backpacking, cycling, and working or playing in the yard together.

Dr. Williams’ adventurous spirit is reflected not only through what he does for others but also how he chooses to enjoy his time away. Dr. Williams has participated in several Sprint, Olympic, half Ironman, and full Ironman distance triathlons. He also works with young men ages 16-18 in church, taking them on regular high adventure activities.

This kind of passion and dedication guides Dr. Williams through how best to care for his family, his patients, his local community, and those around the world.
