Hi,Dr. Greg Dilger General and cosmetic dentist

I’m Dr. Greg Dilger. I am a third-generation dentist practicing advanced restorative and cosmetic dentistry in Salem, Oregon.  Our office is on the west side of town. My grandfather was a dentist in Yankton, South Dakota and my father was a dentist here in West Salem from 1952 to 1988.

We are sad to announce Dr. Michael Tichy has moved to Portland. He has purchased a practice in the Portland area and is in the process of getting his own practice up and running.  We wish Dr. Tichy all the best in his new endeavor.  Dr. Tichy is a 2017 graduate of OHSU School of Dentistry, and has been a good friend of mine for 20 years. 


 I hope you enjoy visiting our website and find it easy to read, informative and helpful.  Dentistry is dynamic and constantly changing.  Take the time to look around here.  My staff and I have spent many long hours to develop this content.  The Oral health section has over 2 dozen articles related to the care of the mouth and how it affects the rest of the body, and new articles are added on a regular basis. ***I have a video that shows how to floss.  Click here to watch it. ***
One of our newest article's is by about white spots on teeth and new protocols to treat them.  If there is something you are looking for that you cannot find, try the search feature at the top of the right column or
send us an e-mail


Do you have a dental question?  Many people are not familiar with all the advances in dentistry today, and still think of dentistry as it was ten or even twenty years ago.  Believe me, things have really changed. Ask Dr. Dilger a question

We can help with bridges or implants.   For a more complete list of services, see the Dental Services page.


Check out our Technology Section to see new innovations in dentistry. I am constantly reviewing new products to bring the best available treatments to our patients.

Dr. Dilger and Staff,


I want to begin by expressing a sincere thank you for a most positive experience yesterday in your office. As always, the entire staff went out of their way to make my wife and I feel welcome. It never ceases to amaze me what new gadgetry and technology you bring to your practice and your willingness to explain it to us all. I’m such a techno-junkie, I can’t wait to see what’s next. As I reflected on my visit afterwards, I couldn’t help but think just how far advanced dental technology has come over the years.

Let me close by saying a sincere thank you for being our dentist and our friend.

Dr. Dilger,


What a building! With high tech dental equipment, and relaxing d├ęcor-best quality. I believe that this office should be the model for all offices. To replace this staff would require a worldwide search!

Dear Dr. Dilger,


I would like to thank all of you for the many years of wonderful dental care that you have given me.

I had the opportunity to compare dentists at another facility recently. Dr. Dilger, Julie, Bernadette and the rest of the staff are far and away the best team anywhere! You all are caring and have the patient's best interest at heart. I'm thankful for all of you.
