Dr. Bill Dischinger began his orthodontic career in 1999, joining his father’s practice. They worked side by side until 2015 when Dr. Terry Dischinger retired from active practice. Working together was the fulfillment of a life long dream for both Dr. Bill and Dr. Terry. They learned and perfected their art of orthodontics together and this only strengthened their bond as father and son. Dr. Bill would love it if one of his four boys decided to pursue the same career some day.
Dr. Bill grew up in Lake Oswego and graduated from Lake Oswego High School where he played football, basketball and golf. More importantly though, he met his wife Kari Lynn there as well. Following high school, Dr. Bill attended Oregon State University for his undergraduate studies and continued to the University of Oregon Health Science Center where he earned his DMD in 1997. His certificate in orthodontics was earned in 1999 at Tufts University in Boston, Massachusetts.
As was mentioned above, Dr. Bill married his high school sweetheart, Kari Lynn Hayes. Kari Lynn is certified as a neonatal intensive care nurse and takes care of their family. They are the proud parents of four boys: Taylor, Turner, and their twins, Trey and Tristan. Dr. Bill and his wife enjoy long walks together, traveling to new and exciting places, and trying new restaurants. He is an avid golfer although doesn’t play much nowadays. However, spending time with his family is his number one hobby. Dr. Bill has many interests and hobbies outside of the practice including activities within his church, family time, and spending as much time as possible with his four sons.
