Learning about Wisdom Teeth and their purpose.

Wisdom Teeth usually develop in young adults. Wisdom teeth can present challenges because they can be very difficult to keep clean, can be painful, or there may not be enough room for them in the mouth and therefore highly susceptible to tooth decay, infection, and gum disease.

Some wisdom teeth will never erupt and will stay impacted. Those that do erupt can cause pain as they break through the gum tissue. Prior to the removal of any teeth, especially wisdom teeth, there are clinical examinations and radiographs that should be taken. Wisdom teeth may be close to the mandibular nerve or sinus cavity and disturbance of these can cause serious issues. Removal of wisdom teeth is a surgical procedure and is often recommended to be done under conscious sedation.

If you or your child is experiencing pain or tenderness, erupted wisdom teeth could be one of many causes. Give us a call at (509) 497-7777 and we will make the proper diagnosis and design the best treatment plan for the problem.

Meet Our Dentists

Dr. Spencer Greer

General Dentist and Owner of Mid-Columbia Dental

Dr. Greer is from Mesa, Arizona and attended Brigham Young University and Creighton University School of Dentistry.

“Initially, I was on a different career path when I felt a strong calling to do something with my hands in the sciences. Shortly thereafter, I had my yearly dental exam; that’s when I knew that being a dentist was what I was called to do. It’s been beyond rewarding to feel needed, challenged and successful. I couldn’t do what I do without my amazing team.”

When Dr. Greer isn’t being a Rockstar dentist or serenading his patients with song, he can be found alongside his wife and five kiddos. He enjoys mountain biking, surfing, playing pickleball with his wife and sons, and enjoying family performances where everyone takes a turn in the spotlight.

Dr. Nick Howard

General Dentist

Dr. Howard is from Bellevue, Washington and studied dentistry at Roseman University of Health Sciences. His natural curiosity for science and being drawn to people made it easy for his wife to see that he would make a great dentist.

“I’m so grateful to her for opening this door because I love dentistry, every facet of it intrigues me.”

When Dr. Howard isn’t providing stellar care to his patients, he likes to spend his spare time with his beautiful wife and three kiddos.

“Family is most important to me, and I would be honored to help you and your family with all your dentistry needs!”

Dr. Garrett Stoker

General Dentist

Dr. Stoker is from West Richland, Washington and graduated from the University of Washington. He began his journey into dentistry as a Dental Assistant, where he discovered the joy and satisfaction of being part of a patient’s oral health transformation. Having a big heart for serving others and helping with community outreach programs also made becoming a Dentist an easy choice.

“Dentistry allows me to balance family life while still helping the community, which lines up with my core values.”

In his free time, Dr. Stoker enjoys competitively playing board games with his wife, performing hip-hop dance parties with his kiddos, and enjoying the outdoors with his family.

Dr. Rachelle Beebe

Dr. Rachelle Beebe

General Dentist

Dr. Beebe hails from the scenic city of Seattle, Washington. Having pursued her education diligently, she graduated from The Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health (ASDOH) to fulfill her dream of becoming a dentist. Before this, she honed her skills and passion for dental care at The Utah College of Dental Hygiene, where she earned her degree in Dental Hygiene. Interestingly, Dr. Beebe began her journey in the dental field as a hygienist before advancing to dentistry—a testament to her unwavering dedication and commitment to oral health.

Dr. Beebe’s journey in dentistry is deeply rooted in her personal experiences. As a child, she endured teasing about her own teeth, which ignited her fervor to empower others to care for their dental health and rediscover confidence in their smiles.

Beyond her professional pursuits, Dr. Beebe treasures her time spent with her family, considering them the cornerstone of her life. An avid adventurer, she finds solace and joy in exploring the great outdoors. Not one to shy away from challenges, Dr. Beebe has conquered impressive feats such as scaling Mt. Kilimanjaro and triumphantly summiting Mt. Rainier last year. Her diverse interests extend to traveling, weightlifting, trail running, and a perpetual thirst for knowledge.
