Meet Dr. Kupfer

Photo of Dr. Philipp Kupfer - Oral SurgeonDr. Kupfer is a third-generation dentist. He was born and raised in Germany, where his father practiced as a general dentist. He met his wife Rachel through a high school exchange program, and then immigrated to the U.S. to attend Concordia University in Portland. After graduation, he continued his college research at Oregon Health & Science University until he moved to Boston, MA to attend the Harvard School of Dental Medicine. During dental school, he completed a managerial internship at Straumann USA to further his interest in business and leadership.

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery brought him back to Portland to attend Oregon Health & Science University. There, in conjunction with the Head and Neck Surgical Group at Legacy Emanuel Hospital, he developed a special interest in orthognathic surgery, virtual surgical planning, and the application of advanced imaging in our specialty. He served on the MEDPRO Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Resident Advisory Board as a resident and was given the privilege of becoming a reviewer for the German Journal, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.

Dr. Kupfer completed a fellowship at the Carolinas Center for Oral and Facial Surgery under Dr. Brian Farrell. There he participated in hundreds of complex orthognathic and reconstructive surgeries. In addition to dentoalveolar surgery and wisdom tooth removal, the fellowship also focused on major bone grafting with subsequent implant reconstruction. During this time, he published articles and book chapters in the areas of orthognathic surgery, facial trauma, advanced imaging, cleft care and associated cost, and virtual surgical planning.

When he is not treating patients at Skyline Oral, Facial & Dental Implant Surgery, he enjoys spending time with his three children and his loving wife Rachel. They enjoy skiing, basketball, biking, water sports, good food, and spending time with friends and family.
