Dr. Patricia Peirano Franklin Board Certified Pediatric Dentist
Dr. Patty was born and raised in Santiago, Chile. She received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the Mayor University in Chile, graduating with Honors in 2002. After practicing in Chile for 5 years, she moved to Portland where she completed her fellowship and specialty training in Pediatric Dentistry at Oregon Health & Science University.
She comes from a big city but has fallen in love with the slower pace of the Northwest. Dr. Patty and her husband, Kipp, have two young boys, Lucca and Nicco, and a mini labradoodle, Whiskey. Lucca has adapted to his role as a big brother very well and “helps” with baby Nicco as much as he can. Whiskey continues to excel in cleaning up crumbs and licking faces after each meal.
Dr. Patty is a past president of the Oregon Academy of Pediatric Dentistry
and an active member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and International Association of Pediatric Dentistry. She has also served as an Assistant Professor at OHSU
One of her passions is participating in community service projects in the local community and abroad. She is a regular volunteer at free clinics and has twice traveled to Haiti on dental missions, even picking up the local Haitian Creole when she volunteered in Port Au Prince for 5 months.
Dr. Patty enjoys spending time with her family and friends, exploring the outdoors and traveling to sunny places.
Dr. Patty is dedicated to providing high quality and compassionate dental care to children.
