Staci Whitman, D.M.D.

Founder of NoPo Kids Dentistry, Functional and Holistic Pediatric Dental Office and HappiFloss Inventor

Doctor Staci Whitman is on a mission to create a cavity-free world. She is the founder of NoPo Kids Dentistry where she takes a whole-body, holistic, and functional approach with her patients. Her dentistry and practice philosophy is grounded by science and powered by love.
Doctor Staci attended Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and initially worked as a general dentist. Eventually she went back to school, earning a certificate in pediatric dentistry from Oregon Health and Sciences University (OHSU). She has always been passionate about children’s sleep and airway health, focusing her research in residency on how to improve airway assessments and diagnostic tools in the pediatric population.
In 2019 she founded NoPo Kids Dentistry with a mission to take a whole-body approach to dentistry. She became a diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry in 2012 and is a board-certified pediatric dentist and a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. She is also involved in many organized dentistry groups including the Holistic Dental Association, the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, the International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine, the American Association of Ozonotherapy, and has her certification in laser proficiency. She has taken numerous courses and trainings in children’s sleep and airway medicine, studying oral myofunctional therapy, craniosacral therapy, and is a Breathe Institute ambassador.
Doctor Staci is an internationally certified health and wellness coach from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and is currently attending the Institute of Functional Medicine and the American College of Integrative Dentistry and Medicine with expected certification dates in 2022 and 2023 respectively. She dreams of a world without cavities and believes in motivating families to join her as a team, keeping their children healthy and thriving with small, manageable daily changes.
Doctor Staci has also invented Happi Floss, the world’s first flosser designed for true compostability. Doctor Staci is proud to infuse her beliefs into all that she does. The flossers are locally made in a fair-wage shop near Portland, Oregon, with renewable energy. Happi Floss is toxin-free and cruelty-free and has two sizes to accommodate mouths of all shapes and sizes. To date, Doctor Staci has self-funded Happi Floss through the research and development phase, testing the product with friends and family to come up with the final iteration that’s being shared with the world during the Happi Floss Indiegogo campaign.
