Practice History

Serving Families in SE Portland for More Than 30 Years

Pinecone Dental Care office exterior.33 years ago, Dr. Jeffrey Nicholson built Nicholson Dental Care and began serving families in the SE Portland community. Dr. Nicholson has spent his career fostering relationships with and caring for the wonderful patient families of this community. His favorite memories have been to care for multiple generations of the same family and watching them grow. After a careful search lasting over a year, in 2021 Dr. Nicholson decided to pass the keys to the practice to Dr. Joey Zhu.

Dr. Joey is a proud graduate of the University of Michigan School of Dentistry and has been practicing in the Pacific Northwest for over 5 years. When Dr. Joey met Dr. Nicholson, they immediately connected over the similarities in their practice philosophies. They both agreed that the foundation of a successful dental practice rests on the relationship and trust built between the dentist and the patients. Dr. Joey aspires to continue the proud tradition of long term focused family-oriented dental care that Dr. Nicholson started over 30 years ago, and he looks forward to meeting and caring for every one that comes through the door of Pinecone Dental Care.
