A Letter to Our Patients
Safety is always our number one focus. Our high standard of care ensures that your trust and safety are never compromised.
John T. Robinson, DMD, PC
I am writing this letter to let you know I have decided after 43 years in Dentistry to retire as of October 5, 2020. I will be in occasionally to finish up any work in progress. I have been contemplating this move for a few years and have finally found someone who I can trust to continue giving appropriate and excellent dentistry to my patients.
Dr. Justin Higbee is a native Oregonian and has moved back after a brief time in Arizona. He and his wife Katie and his three sons are delighted to be here and are looking forward to rejoining the local community.
It has been a challenge to find someone with a similar dental treatment philosophy to mine. I feel that Justin's dental preferences and skills are very similar plus he enjoys doing some of the procedures that I typically refer out. I feel confident that he will continue to provide you and your family the best dental care available.
My dedicated staff members have all committed to stay and continue to serve you. They are excited to begin working with Dr. Higbee.
The hardest part of this transition for me will be the loss of the regular contact I have had with my patients. Thank you for all your loyalty and understanding over the years and during this transition. I have appreciated the opportunity to care for you in the past. Dr. Higbee is looking forward to the same opportunity in the coming years. All my best wishes and THANKS for the great years of friendship and association.

"I came to Oregon from Colorado in 1968 to attend Lewis and Clark College in Portland. There I met my wife Carla and became a forever Oregonian.
Graduate work brought us to Eugene and the U of O until I moved on to Dental school at Washington University in St. Louis. I earned my Doctor of Medical Dentistry Degree in 1979, then immediately moved back to Eugene. I have since maintained a general practice with an emphasis on restorative, crown and bridge, implant and cosmetic dentistry.
My practice philosophy includes a strong interest in continuing education. I highly believe in continuing education as a way of improving my knowledge and skill. To that end, I will quite often attend classes in Oregon as well as across the US. I love bringing back new ideas and procedures we can implement immediately.
I currently hold a fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry, American College of Dentists and Academy of Dentistry International. My memberships include American Dental Association, Oregon Dental Association, Lane County Dental Society, Academy of Osseointegration and Exploring Excellence Study Club.
Outside the office my greatest interests are my family. My daughter Krista is a 7th grade English teacher in Hillsboro. We enjoy spending time with her family - husband Travis and children Sam and Holly. Son Eric is a Graphic designer working for Snapfish at Hewlett Packard in Corvallis. His three children Baillie, Emma and Elijah visit us in Eugene frequently. Youngest son Evan is an accomplished massage therapist here in town."
