Meet Portland’s Favorite Dental Team

At ADANW, we honestly enjoy forming strong, trusting, and durable relationships with each of our patients.  Our team members, each highly experienced in their own realms of expertise, share a commonality of providing nurturing, compassionate, and empathetic care through every stage of treatment.  Whether making certain that you are fully informed at every stage of care, helping you select entertainment or music during treatment, or bringing a blanket or a glass of water to provide greater comfort, their personal and genuine commitment to you will always shine through. We can’t wait to help you not only smile brighter and more comfortably, but also experience a better quality of life as well.

Anna Sananixay, Care Coordinator

Patient care coordinator Anna

Anna is much more than the person behind the smile that is seemingly everywhere at once. Her goal is to make everything and everyone run seamlessly for the optimal dental experience. These are talents she refined during her earlier career in the hospitality industry which built on her natural vibrancy and interests in people-pleasing, as well as her inborn need to always be accomplishing things. While she appears to have time for everything and everyone, it is because she is, in reality, an excellent multi-tasker. She’s a perpetual motion machine personified!

As if to underscore that point, out of the dental office, Anna and her husband have three young children, each of them demanding, and receiving, her full-time attention. That, plus running their household, make us think that all Anna needs now are a couple of dogs.

Ou Sananixay, Lead Clinician

Lead clinician Ou

Ou comes to us from Laos by way of Thailand and the Philippines. She arrived in Portland in 1986 with an interest in medicine and graduated from the Dental Assisting program at Portland Community College, immediately joining our dental office afterward.

You cannot meet Ou and not be impressed with her energy and openness. If anything tops her chairside clinical skills, it would be her compassionate nature. She has that rare talent of putting everyone at ease with her light touch and dancing laugh. Patients often call her “Mommy Ou” because she is forever babying them.

In real life, Ou greatly enjoys fishing and crabbing, hunting mushrooms, and hanging out with her mother, siblings, children, and a great number of other relatives. She is very active in cultural celebrations and loves to travel anywhere.

Ou speaks Leu, Lao, Thai, Mien, and English. Ou can be reached at: Ou@advanceddentalartsnw.com .
