Get to Know Travis and Christel !
As you can tell, Cochell Family Dentistry is a husband and wife team with a combined 23 years of experience practicing dentistry. With this dynamic, they hope to create a more family-friendly atmosphere, a theme that’s hard to find at your typical dental practice these days. Let’s take a moment to learn more about them individually.
Dr. Christel Cochell earned her dental degree from the Oregon Health & Science University Hospital located in Portland before opening her practice. After dental school, she attended the Synergy Training Program, which provided her extensive education in the planning and restoring of implants in a wide variety of simple to complex cases.
After graduating valedictorian at his high school and with high honors from Portland State University, Dr. Travis Cochell attended OHSU School of Dentistry. Here he met his wife, Dr. Christel Cochell, but they first started out as lab partners – practicing everything from dental injections to impressions on each other. They got married their junior year in dental school before graduating with dental degrees. Dr. Travis has continued his studies by completing many hours of continuing education each year centering on many topics ranging from implants and esthetic crowns to complex restorative treatment plans. After dental school he focused on the practice here in Salem and took annual trips to Mexico to provide care to migrant farm workers and disabled children and adults. He’s very excited to provide highly personalized treatment plans and exceptionally dedicated attention to every patient who walks through his office doors.
Dr. Christel Cochell was born and raised in Salem and attended Oregon State University for her first 4 years of college. She also earned her dental degree from Oregon Health & Science University in Portland before opening their practice. While she and her husband worked to grow their practice, she spent part of her time working in a rural community and volunteering. She has completed additional courses including the Synergy Training Program, which provided her extensive education in the planning and restoring of implants in a wide variety of simple to complex cases.
Serving Dental Care to Families
Cochell Family Dentistry wouldn’t be able to call itself such if it wasn’t able to cater to patients of all different ages. That means your children and teenagers can come to the practice to make sure their oral health is in good shape and that their teeth are developing as they should be.
Furthermore, there’s no cap on age when it comes to maintaining oral health either. Patients who need full or partial dentures, porcelain veneers or full mouth reconstructions can benefit by visiting our practice!

Furthermore, their treatment philosophy puts a strong emphasis on evidence-based research. This simply means they use their current dental knowledge and expertise as well as current information from the dental world to provide the most cutting-edge care available.
