President and Lead Dentist:
Brenden Davis received a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) and a Masters of Public Health (MPH) from A.T. Still University. In 2009, he started the dental program for Community Health of Central Washington (Ellensburg Dental Care) and served as the Dental Director from its inception until May 2016. As an extension of that program, Dr. Davis pioneered Senior Smiles of Central Washington in 2014 to provide dental care in nursing homes for seniors and disabled adults.
In 2015, Dr. Davis created Northwest Oral Health and Outreach (NWOHO) to reach more under-served seniors and children in the Pacific Northwest. Beginning May 2016, Dr. Davis transitioned to be the lead dentist with NWOHO, sharing his time at the Ellensburg clinic and the outreach program. Due to the new restrictions for visiting nursing homes during the COVID-19 pandemic, outreach activities were suspended in 2020. In 2021, the Kennewick location opened; together with the Ellensburg clinic, Dr. Davis and associates continue to offer more dental care options for all ages to the surrounding communities.
Dr. Davis holds the rank of Major in the Washington State National Guard, representing more than 20 years of military service. While on active duty, Dr. Davis was deployed overseas several times to locations such as Iraq, Bosnia, and Honduras. Currently, he provides dental exams to National Guard soldiers on a monthly basis.
