Meet Dr. Adam Diesburg

McMinnville dentist Dr. Adam Diesburg, D.D.S. understands that oral health is paramount to overall health. 

“By helping our patients achieve optimum health for their mouth, gums and teeth, I can actually extend peoples’ lives,” Dr. Diesburg said. “My work is about creating overall wellness and quality of life.”


Raised in the Midwest, Dr. Diesburg earned both a Bachelor of Arts in German Language and Culture and a Bachelor in Liberal Studies with focuses in Chemistry, Psychology and Studio Art from Iowa State University. A fluent German speaker, he studied as an exchange student at the University of Eichstaett, Germany. Dr. Diesburg completed an externship at the University of Radboud in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, with an emphasis in composite resin (the material we use to make dental fillings). There, he created a community program to educate homeless people about oral health.

Dr. Diesburg received his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) from the University of Iowa. He is a member of the American Dental Association and the Oregon Dental Association.

As a full scope general dentist, Dr. Diesburg also holds specialty training in:

Your dentist in McMinnville

McMinnville is a special place and Dr. Diesburg and his family moved here in 2011 specifically to be a part of the McMinnville community. He was hand-picked by Dr. Mark Appel, who practiced in McMinnville for 30 years before retiring. The original practice was created by Dr. Eastman in 1951 and was the first dental practice in Yamhill County.

“McMinnville is one of those places where the grass is always greenest,” Dr. Diesburg said. “We really went looking for a sweet spot to practice the way we do, and we found it.”

In his leisure time, Dr. Diesburg enjoys the patient art of cultivating bonsai (you can check out our photo gallery of the ones he brings to the office), creating sculpture, painting, playing guitar and swing dancing. But more than anything, he enjoys spending quality time with his wife, Emily, and sons, Dash and Griffin.
