I work in health care and it has never been any organization's practice that I've worked for, to cancel your appointment because you didn't answer a call or text. I made this appointment over 5 months. I was just in the office on 7/24/19. Why wasn't I informed then. This shady practice reeks of discrimination against, low income earners and disabled people who don't have access to or are unable to answer the phone. They only seem to want to serve people that can afford the luxury of having a cell phone. If I scheduled an appointment, i expect to have an appointment. I don't mind if they had tried to reach me and when I arrived said the provider is out sick I can accept that. I left a message for the clinic manager to give me a call after 430 pm on 8/9/19. I'll let you know what happens. UPDATE: I received a call around 7 pm on 8/9/19. I spoke to management who saw I had just been in the office 2 weeks ago, have extensive appointments and have never missed an appointment. Stated I should have been confirmed 2 weeks prior when I was last in the office. I was able to express my concerns about the new policy and its risk for implementation. Manager shared my concerns and stated that they would work on improving the policy. I was happy enough that I rescheduled appointment for a later date. Considering I still undergoing other treatments and have other appointments from this office, it made sense to continue using this office. Will let you know if I have better or worse experiences in the future.

Broke one of my fake teeth off while in portland on a business trip. They are open late so I was able to get in and get it repaired same day. The repair quality WAS THE BEST I HAVE EVER HAD. Honestly the work my dentist did was outstanding. The staff was also extremely friendly and helpful, I wish this was my local dentist.

I've hated the dentist and gotten horrible anxiety before every appointment until coming to this location and seeing Dr. White! I've had Oregon health plan the majority of my life and you don't always get the best treatment from medical facilities and staff. But at this location I've never been treated with anything but kindness and recieved sincere help. The office staff have even called me back after hours to pass on advice from the dentist to get me temporary relief until my scheduled appointment. Dr. White is always so kind, down to earth, REAL (seems hard to find with Dr's!) And just in general a pleasure to work with. I've had a pretty extensive amount of dental work done. If another problem arises or I have an issue with previously done work Dr.White has never been judgemental or condescending in any way. He just comes up with as many solutions as he can and lays them out with the positives and negatives of each. I've gotten my entire immeadiate family going to this location and seriously reccomend them to anyone I know who says they're looking for a dental office. Thank you Gental Dental Lloyd Center for changing how I feel about going to the dentist!

Best dentist I’ve ever had and I’m in my mid 40’s so I’ve had a few. They have worked around my schedule and seen me with no notice at all for an enexpected dental need. They are always upfront and tell me how it is but I never get the impression they want to do unecessay work. Highly recommended!!

Dr. Houghton has been absolutely amazing every time I have seen him. Efficient, calm and as the company name states, gentle. Recommended from someone who has historically avoided the dentist and is generally pretty adverse to the whole experience. He pulled one of my wisdom teeth when it got infected in no time, and then recently the rest of them with no incident. He followed up and made sure everything was fine and even when my nervousness sent me back to his office to double check, he was very understanding and helpful. The rest of the staff is also very friendly and polite. Great customer service. 5 stars for a fully deserved reason.

I will update my review as my experience progresses. So far they are very kind and knowledgeable enough to deem trustworthy. Update: Still knowledgeable, and still trustworthy. Overall best experience with a dentist I've had since I was a young child. I plan on coming back here for my dental needs and even referring my family.
