Meet the Hollywood Family Dental Team
Dr. Candace Krause and Dr. Jeremy Kato are dedicated to the long-term health of their patients. For them, long-term relationships come naturally—Dr. Kato was a patient of Dr. Krause’s when he was growing up. Having her as a dentist inspired him to become one himself!
The doctors have worked together at their first location in Gladstone since 2006. Over that time, they and their staff have developed a passion for treating patients like family. That means you’ll always be able to get all of your questions answered, you’ll always receive the highest level of care, and you’ll always be treated fairly and respectfully.
Our patients come back to see us year after year, recommending us to their families and friends because the care they’ve received has been truly exceptional. Even if you don’t decide to become a dentist, we hope that the treatment you receive at Hollywood Family Dentistry will inspire you to feel healthy and happy!
Patient Care Coordinator
Dr. Candace Krause, DMD
Dr. Candace Krause grew up in Milwaukie and is a 1983 graduate of the OHSU School of Dentistry, and completed undergraduate studies at OSU in 1980. She wanted to become a dentist because she enjoys the detailed nature of the work. Each dental exam and procedure has to be done right the first time, and for someone who likes focused work, dentistry was a natural choice. However, every patient, every tooth, and every day are different for her, and this is one of the pleasures of both being a dentist and running a business. Her ability to ease suffering and promote health in her patients is what makes Dr. Krause’s work gratifying every day.
Dr. Krause’s gentle and reassuring manner instantly puts her patients — children and adults — at ease. This is part of her personality, but it’s also a result of years of experience. When Dr. Krause was fresh out of dental school and just beginning as a professional, she learned something very important about being a compassionate dentist while treating a young patient.
Dr. Jeremy Kato, DDS
Dr. Jeremy Kato is a dentist with a surprising range of talents. He received his dental degree from the University of Maryland, has completed special courses in implantology and orthodontics, and has done extensive dental research since 2001. But in addition to his great dentistry skills, Dr. Kato also speaks Cantonese, a language he learned while he lived in China for two years, and also worked as an EMT before he became a dentist. All of these talents show that he takes communicating with and caring for people seriously. But don’t worry, even though he’s a serious guy, he still likes to have a good time as he works with patients.
Dr. Kato believes in treating his patients just like family, and that kind of care will translate into any language, in any situation. He looks forward to getting to know all the people and businesses that make the Hollywood area unique.
