Meet the Team

Dr. Brian T. Rust, DMD

Dr. Brian Rust Whether you meet someone new or catch up with an old friend, the talk often turns to what you do for a living. After you say what you do, you are sometimes asked, “If you had it to do over again, would you?” My answer to this, I already did.

After getting a bachelor’s degree from the University of Oregon in 2000, I worked in corporate retail for a few years. I enjoyed my experience and wouldn’t trade it for anything, but I found it lacking in personal connection with the public. I got into dentistry because I wanted to work more directly with people, and do something where I could tangibly measure my ability to benefit others. So, I had it to do over, and dentistry is what I chose.

After graduating from OHSU dental school in 2008, I began practicing with my father in the Beaverton area and have been here ever since. When I’m not working in the office, I enjoy obstacle course races and running, reading and golfing, tailgating and watching Oregon Ducks football. I enjoy spending time with my wife, Cristina (who is also a dentist), our daughter Julia, and our two cats and new puppy.

Dr. Charles Hartman, DMD

Dr. Charles Hartman Dr. Hartman grew up in Bend, Oregon and graduated from Willamette University in Salem.

Dr. Hartman has lived in Portland for 10 years and is very excited to be working with Dr. Rodman and the team at Raleigh Park Dental Care to provide the latest and greatest dental care to the surrounding Portland and Beaverton community.

While in dental school, Dr. Hartman began and continues to go on yearly dental service trips to Guatemala that provide critical dental care to children of small villages without access to health care.

Outside of the office, Dr. Hartman can be heard playing guitar and drums, or seen walking his dog — Fender — around the neighborhood.

Dr. Barry Taylor, DMD

He enjoys all of his patients, but especially loves working with children. He takes great pride in helping children who may be nervous about receiving dental care.

Outside of dentistry, he loves to remain active and seek new adventures. He enjoys swimming, running, cycling, camping, and hiking for starters. He enjoys working in the yard, especially on his fish pond or with his family’s pet ducks.
