I’ve been going here for 6 years. Dr. Blakely is a great dentist. Good at explaining what needs to be done. I’ve had quite a bit of dental work here and I’ve always felt confident I was seeing a professional. Anna, the hygienist, did a deep clean and scaling today. She was amazing and I’m the worst dental patient ever. The staff is also terrific to work with.

I feel cheesy saying this, but I actually just left my dentist's office grinning ear to ear. I mean, I usually have a good experience at the Gentle Dental on Woodstock. But today it was especially good. And not just because I aced my dental exam. From start to finish, the staff were friendly, organized, and professional, and the whole experience was pretty much pain free. At the end I told my hygienist, "That was the most gentle cleaning I've ever had!" to which he replied, "I guess that's why we're called Gentle Dental!

I saw the hygienist Nicole for my cleaning and she was fantastic. My teeth feel amazing and she really cared about how comfortable I was the entire time. All of the office staff and Dr. Blakley were great as well!

Such a friendly, efficient, dentist. They go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and even allowed my 9 year old to do his homework in the room while I was having a crown replaced. I highly recommend them.

Whenever I look through old photos of my younger self, I rarely ever see myself showing my teeth when I smile. Being born with Amelogenesis Imperfecta meant that my teeth were brittle and unsightly. However, due to the hard work of the staff here, I have been given the wonderful opportunity to finally smile with confidence. Getting all of my teeth crowned was a difficult process for both sides, but the staff handled it exceptionally with utmost care for my well-being. I will forever be grateful for Dr. Blakely and the rest of the staff for giving me a smile I don't have to hide.

I highly recommend this place! I had so much anxiety going in from previous dentist experiences. Thought I needed 1 filling and ended up needing a root canal and 5 fillings. I was terrified! But the entire team was SO sweet and really supportive during the entire procedure. I didn't feel a thing and everything looks great! Dr. Blakley and Dr. Cutrera did an amazing job. THANK YOU :)

5 stars. Everything in one place and all excellent providers (dentist daily, endodontist and orthodontist weekly - these are the services I’ve needed) means you don’t have to travel all over Portland if you need more than a filling. Avoid all that hassle here at nice, clean, modern office with friendly staff. Nitrous oxide availability puts my severe anxiety *almost* at ease! Love Dr. Blakely especially and Dr. Katrerra (sp?) thankfully saved a tooth 2 dentists prior didn’t think savable that I was prepared to have to have extracted. I have not experienced anything at all that would warrant a few one star ratings I’ve read here and on Yelp; they completely baffle me.
