ZOOM+Smile On-Demand Dental Health Care Opens in SE Portland

Saturday, June 06, 2015


Imagine a trip to the dentist that is simple, painless, and even a little bit fun. If that sounds far-fetched, it might be time to visit ZOOM+Smile- an on-demand dental health service that recently opened in Southeast Portland. 

ZOOM+Smile is a branch of the Portland-based innovator of on-demand health care, ZoomCare. The company recently changed its named to ZOOM+, to reflect its widening range of health care services such as dentistry.

“Nine years ago, we started with a simple idea to deliver a disruptive, delightful care experience that delivers twice the health at half the cost. Our ZoomCare clinics were very successful, but we encountered inherent friction in the system that inspired us to rethink the way all care is delivered,” said Dave Sanders, M.D., co-founder and CEO of ZOOM+. “ZOOM+ represents a new generation of health insurance, one that is not based on sickness, nor even on wellness, but on enhancing human performance. It is designed from the ground up to be used every day to help people be happier and more creative and productive.”

ZOOM+Smile offers multiple dental care plans, including a three-in-one dental exam for cleaning and whitening that only takes about one hour. At both ZOOM+Smile and other ZOOM+ services, same-day appointment scheduling through the online portal or over the phone makes for a fast and easy way to get your health taken care of. 

Become a member of ZOOM+ Performance Health Insurance to get a free Healthy Clean White 57 treatment every year.

ZOOM+Smile is open Monday-Friday, 9am-6pm at 3130 SE Division St.
