Meet Dr. Garfinkle

To help someone smile, talk, laugh, breathe, and be more confident brings me a sense of purpose and fulfillment. I am driven by my desire to be of service and am honored to be part of this journey with each patient.

Meet Dr. Thrower

I had the privilege of having orthodontic treatment as a teenager. My smile was greatly improved by a doctor in my hometown, and my desire thereafter was to always pay it forward. While in residency, I learned how to improve teeth relationships and smiles, but I wanted to dig deeper and make this privileged service more accessible to all rather than a select few. Fast forward to my time spent at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, I realized that Dr. Judah is doing just that in his clinic - providing services accessible to a wide range of people!

Dr. Judah is a brilliant human. He’s a true scholar and an expert in our field. I’m looking forward to working with and learning from the absolute best! His specialty training of providing world class care to clefts and craniofacial conditions is one of a kind, and I’m eager to join in the ranks of the few who can provide this level of service.


The mission of Smile Oregon is to ensure every child in Oregon affected by a cleft or other craniofacial condition has access to the coordinated care they deserve by providing support, awareness, and education. Dr. Garfinkle co-founded the organization in 2008 and serves on the Board of Directors.
