Dr. Christel Cochell –

Dr. Cochell was born and grew up in Salem! She first became interested in dentistry in high school. After attending Oregon State University for her undergraduate degree, she pursued her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from OHSU in Portland. She also attended the Synergy Training Program where she learned about planning and restoring dental implants. In addition to that, she did hands-on group studies and lectures with Capitol Study Group and Marion Polk Dental Society.

As of today, Dr. Cochell has been serving patients for nearly two decades. She is currently a proud member of the American Dental Association, Oregon Dental Association, and Seattle Study Club.

My family and I moved to Salem in early 2020. We were recommended to Cochell Family Dentistry by our family dentist in Gresham and we couldn’t be happier. My little ones are comfortable seeing the dentist and hygienist. They get so excited about going and getting their toothbrush kits and picking from the prize box after their appointment.
