Dr. Kokoreva

Dr. Natalija Kokoreva

Dr. Natalija Kokoreva knew she was going to be a dentist since she was in elementary school. Growing up in Eastern Europe, she discovered her passion for oral health as she watched her mother run her dental practice in a local orphanage. Since early childhood, she was interested in the science of human body, and spent her free time exploring anatomy museums and studying books about human body and diseases. She was also deeply involved in arts and playing piano at a conservatory preparation music school. When Dr. Kokoreva was a teenager, the family moved to Memphis, Tennessee, where she attended middle and high school. With her background, it was a no brainer that dentistry was a perfect career match– it combined her two biggest passions: science and art. She graduated Rhodes College in 2010 with honors, earning her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. Shortly after, she earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry.

Dr. Kokoreva wanted to move away from Memphis to somewhere amazing, and then in 2017 she discovered the wonderful Pacific Northwest. Her love for nature and availability of outdoor recreational activities in Oregon made her feel right at home. In the summer time, she enjoys gardening, visiting lakes, kayaking and picnics in state parks with her husband and two kids. In the rainy days, Dr. Kokoreva enjoys hiking in the rain, painting with acrylic paint, playing piano and cooking delicious food for her family and friends.

As a dentist, Dr. Kokoreva possesses a comforting combination of artistry, expertise and compassion. She takes pride in providing comprehensive dental care for the whole family, getting patients out of pain during emergencies, and loves creating beautiful looking smiles. Dr. Kokoreva focuses on excellence and quality service in a relaxed atmosphere, always keeping patient’s best interest at heart. Trained to provide full scope general dentistry, Dr. Kokoreva also offers select specialty procedures to her patients, as well as minimal sedation. Her friendly personality and calm demeanor and gentle hands helped many patients overcome the fear of going to the dentist. As your preferred Milwaukie dentist, Dr. Kokoreva is looking forward to meeting you and taking care of your and your family’s oral health needs.
