Meet Dr. Waschak

John P. Waschak, DDS, MS

Dr. Waschak received his DDS (that makes him a Doctor of Dental Surgery) with distinction from the University of Nebraska Medical Center, College of Dentistry in 2003. He went on to complete his combined residency in orthodontics and pediatric dentistry at the UCLA School of Dentistry in 2006 before opening his practice in Grants Pass. This rigorous program trained him to provide complete dental care for kids, addressing active oral disease as well as occlusal and skeletal abnormalities. Completion of the residency program earned him certificates in both pediatric dentistry and orthodontics: Dr. Waschak holds diplomas from both the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Board of Orthodontics. Dr. Waschak hasn’t rested on his laurels, either! He stays involved in the dental community by maintaining active memberships in the American Dental Association, Oregon Dental Association, Rogue Valley Dental Society, American Association of Orthodontics, American Board of Orthodontics, American Association of Pediatric Dentistry, and the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.

Dr. Waschak didn’t get his start in dentistry, though! No, his love of solid structure had him start out as an engineer, earning a BS in Engineering with high honors from California State University, Northridge and a MS in Structural Engineering from CSUN as well. After working nearly 9 years as a structural engineer, he decided to switch career paths and encourage Grants Pass kids to have healthy teeth instead! He’s been educating and treating children for over a decade since, and this focus means that he and his staff are kid-friendly and prepared to help your child be comfortable at the dentist. Dr. Waschak’s office employs a range of behavior management techniques from telling and showing to general anesthesia. He’s the best dentist for children in Grants Pass!

Dr. Waschak isn’t always on the job in his white coat, of course - when he’s not having fun fixing teeth, you can usually find him appreciating all the beauty that Grants Pass and the Oregon outdoors have to offer - all from the seat of his mountain bike. He also really enjoys celebrating all those special occasions life has to offer with his large extended family. From his family to yours, Dr. Waschak wishes you healthy teeth and a happy life. He can’t wait to see your kids in the office for their next check-up!

I always have awesome experiences here! I can have both my boys go together and they feel so much more comfortable having eachother along with the patient staff since they are 3 and 5 years old! I leave with so many tips and the entire staff makes the time quick, easy and fun!

Valerie Castillo Client


Such a wonderful place to take your kids. I wanted a dentist that made my little ones experience fun. I didnt want a dentist that would be rushed or get frustrated with toddler behavior. Dr. Waschak has fun with the little ones. He make noises & plays while doing the exam. It keeps my child interested & calm. I will never take my kids anywhere else. My very busy little handful of a now 3 year old has no problems there. We are very grateful to have found him!!
