Meet Our Team:
Much of our team has worked at Cedarwood Dental Professionals for many years. We love what we do and enjoy seeing generations of patients come through our office year after year. We find that having a familiar face at the dentist makes your trip to our office a little bit more special.
Our office is dedicated to caring for our patients as we would our own family & friends.
We support a proactive approach to dentistry & offer the highest level of quality.
Our goal is to help you beautify & strengthen your smile to last a lifetime.
Meet Dr. Jim Delgado, DDS
I am a part of a trusted Albany tradition of dental excellence, comfort and care. My career has been dedicated to providing patients with the best that dentistry has to offer. Educating myself and the staff is very important, while using the newest dental techniques and approaches. I strive to serve you and your family with comfortable and personalized care.
In 1993, I graduated from Creighton University School of Dentistry. Always the student, I have completed over 1000 hours of continuing education in the areas of craniofacial orthopedics, orthodontics, TMJ therapy, pain management, cosmetic dentistry, implant surgery, implant prosthetics, occlusion, and bioesthetics. My treatment is based on oral biology and biological systems. It’s more than fixing a tooth.
Currently, I am a member of the American Dental Association, Fellowship Academy of General Dentistry, American Equilibration Society, American Association of Gnathologic Orthopedics, International Academy Gnathology, iCON Articulation, and currently President of Comprehensive Orognathic Restorative Excellence.
I am the newest addition to the Cedarwood Dental team. I really enjoy working with my husband, the staff, and interacting with the patients. I am an ardent proponent of Cedarwood’s goal to give quality service with a caring attitude.
My outside interests include running, competing in races, and volunteering.
Kathleen Howe, EFDA
I joined Cedarwood Dental in 2003 and love being a part of such a great team. I particularly enjoy working here because it affords me the opportunity to constantly build upon and expand my dental knowledge and skills.
I enjoy hiking, running and volunteering. My next outdoor adventure will be to climb the South Sister in Eastern Oregon.
I have worked for Dr. Delgado for over years and can’t imagine working for any other Dentist. If you have an insurance or billing question, I am the one to ask!
Away from work, I enjoy reading, camping and spending time with my family.
Christine Lahoda, RDH, BS
I have been a member of the Cedarwood Dental Team since 2002. After graduating from OIT in 1998, my husband and I returned to Albany to raise our children. Working at a place that is so welcoming and feels like family, is a great experience.
Gina Christensen, RDH
I started working for Dr. Delgado in 1998. It’s a privilege to work with staff that truly cares for each other and their patients.
My favorite things to do away from work are reading, camping and backpacking.
