Meet the Doctor


Dr. Robert Croft

The field of orthodontics is somewhat of a family business.  Both my father and my grandfather were orthodontists.  I love being an orthodontist.  It is such a privilege to be part of a day someone remembers forever when the braces come off.  

I love the relationships I am able to build with my patients and their families by providing the care we give.  While much of the work I do is repetitive in nature, but the individuals are all fun and different, that helps make every day a new experience.

Continuing Education

I have practiced in the Portland/Vancouver area since 1997 and have consistently attempted to improve the level of care we give as technology and advancements in orthodontics develop.  I can say with confidence that the options we offer our patients are currently unmatched in any other office in Southwest Washington.

Outside the Office

When I’m not at the office I enjoy fishing, pickleball and skiing, I am hoping that someday I won’t embarrass myself on the golf course.  I am an avid sports fan and love to watch, read, or talk about the Trailblazers.  I love my wife Erin, we have been married over 30 years. Erin loves to read and play soccer.  We have 3 adult children (Tyler, Lauren and Anna).

How to

Choose an Orthodontist

  • Choosing an orthodontist office for the beauty of your families smile or your child’s smile is an extremely important decision that needs to be made correctly.
  • Orthodontic care can be short and relatively painless or a long process, so you’ll want to make sure you are choosing the right doctor for your needs.
  • The orthodontic experience is something you’ll remember every time you look in the mirror the rest of your life, so make sure it’s a good smile looking back at you.
  • We are an established practice with years of experience, good reviews and a friendly environment.
  • Placing your trust in Columbia Orthodontics, PC will be a decision you never regret.
  • Picking the right orthodontist may seem like a tough task for someone who has never been through it, so it’s a great idea to engage our other customers for a recommendation from someone who has been through our office system.
