Dr. Steven W. Black DDS

Dr. Black

After receiving his undergraduate degree from UCLA in 1984, Steve completed his dental school training with high honors in 3 years at the University of the Pacific Dental School in San Francisco. He then practiced general dentistry in Santa Rosa, and concurrently taught at his dental alma mater until he began his Orthodontic residency at OHSU, here in beautiful Portland.

Dr. Black has been enjoying providing Orthodontic treatment to children and adults in Beaverton and Tigard since 1991. He is proud of his reputation in the Dental and Orthodontic community as a person of integrity, high clinical standards, and as someone who has seamlessly combined both the art and the science of creating beautiful smiles. Your dentist will tell you that Dr. Black's finished cases are the highest quality around. Your neighbors will tell you that Dr. Black's chairside manner is genuine, caring, and he always puts the patient's interests before his own. Your children will tell you that their friends love Dr. Black and his team of gentle and fun-loving assistants.

Dr. Black

Dr. Black highly values ongoing continuing education for himself, as well as for his staff. He is a member of the American Dental Association, Oregon Dental Association, WA County Dental Association, and frequently attends their educational conferences. As a member of the American Association of Orthodontics, the Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontics, and the Oregon State Society of Orthodontics, Dr. Black routinely meets with his Orthodontic peers in a cooperative and collegial manner to continuously improve patient care and clinical efficiency. Dr. Black is also a proud member of the World Federation of Orthodontics, and attends international Orthodontic conferences, to gain a broader perspective on the state of the art of Orthodontic treatment world-wide.

When he is not at the office, Dr. Black enjoys time with his family, watching college basketball and football,  and playing (occasionally frustrating) golf! Dr. Black has a passion for travel and learning about different world cultures, art and architecture. When you're in the office, be sure to ask him about his last or next trip!

Dr. Tarim S. Song, DDS, MS

Dr. Sing

Born and raised in Chicago, Dr. Tarim Song went on to complete her undergraduate, dental school, and orthodontic studies all at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles (a Triple Trojan!), where she also earned a Masters in Craniofacial Biology and taught orthodontics alongside private practice. She has since transplanted back to her four-seasoned roots to join her Portland-native husband here, where now the Pacific Northwest is home to her family.

She delights in being amongst her colleagues in local and national orthodontic societies as a commitment to staying current with the latest advancements to better treat your unique smile needs. She is proudly a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics and an active member of the American Association of Orthodontics, Oregon State Society of Orthodontists, Angle Society of Orthodontists, Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honors Society, and the Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists. You can count on her to be persistent in the pursuit of creating lasting, healthy smiles!

Between creating confident grins and traveling to orthodontic conferences, you can find her and her husband woodworking in the garage, cheering on the Portland Trail Blazers at the Moda Center, being goofy with their toddler at the library, or accompanied by their mini dachshund Tofflemire on a forested hiking trail. She also really loves snow days, live comedy shows, Brontë novels paired with a cup of Smith tea, and rewatching Elf and Edward Scissorhands.

We are honored to have the opportunity to serve your orthodontic needs and beyond: we are eager to hear how our team at Beaverton Orthodontics can better support you both within and outside of the practice. We are dedicated to being a cherished part of an important milestone in your life, and to seeing you and our community thrive in the many years ahead. Thank you for your trust in Beaverton Orthodontics, and we look forward to serving you, your family and our community.
