You might risk wasting all your gaskets in the process. I wouldn't suggest putting in an oil cleaning additive and driving it around. It mgiht do more harm than good.
Its obvious that the oil is taking longer than usual to return and settle. It is definitely not your dipstick problem. What grade oil are you using?
I'm also curious to know what did you do last to your engine?
