        I have been going here for a couple years now and I absolute love it there. The staff is really friendly and helpful, it's got big windows and great music, and the dental team is really knowledgeable. I have pretty bad dental anxiety and I always leave there feeling at ease with super squeaky-clean teeth. They also have evening appointments available on mondays, which is great for those that don't want to take time out of work. I highly recommend this place if you're looking for a new dentist. You won't regret it.

        First time in to get a wisdom tooth pulled, ended up getting all 3 of mine out (they're quite persuasive) in about an hour using local anesthesia so I wasn't goofy as hell afterwards and could drive myself home. Felt zero pain throughout the procedure and wasn't nervous going in. Dr. Elsa Nordahl and her assistant (witty platinum blonde shortie, sorry I forgot your name! You were wonderful!) made what is commonly known as one of the most dreaded procedures, into a cakewalk through the tea park! (Pre-COVID metaphor, obviously). I had many questions, a handful of which were asked when half my face was numb, but "The Queen" (yep, that's a Frozen joke) and her assistant were incredibly knowledgeable and got me up to speed. With Cigna insurance, all three teeth pulled came out to be just under $160. I can't recommend these ladies enough!! As someone who used to hate going to the dentist (used to have to go downtown PDX) I'm looking forward to my next appointment late next month. Oh, and the ladies at the front desk are quite wonderful as well, I liked them 😁 A+++++

        I have to start off this review by saying I'm the biggest chicken at the dentist. I really truly am. I am so afraid that sometimes I will throw up before I go and quite often I sit in the chair and cry. well, this time was a little different. I had cracked a tooth and knew it needed to come out. there was no saving it. so here I am in the waiting room and the office manager and I get to talking and I tell her how anxious I am, etc. when the dr comes out to take me back to the room the office manager came with her and told me she would stay with me and talk with me so that I didn't have to be alone and get all worked up. she stayed with me until they were ready to start. she was so wonderful and caring and kind. really all the staff went above and beyond to help me. having her wait with me made such a difference. I don't know about you, but that time that you spend all alone with your crazy panicked anxious thoughts while waiting for the dr is agony to me. my anxiety just builds and builds. thankfully this time was different. I was able to focus on something else and really made my time there less scary. the dr was wonderful and told me what she was going to do and knowing that I'm not tolerant of shots I got some nitrous oxide and before she gave the shot she told me to look away. her caring and thoughtfulness helped get me thru. I just can't sing their praises enough. if you suffer with anxiety like me go see the staff here. they will take wonderful care of you.

        I can honestly say this office gave me the MOST POSITIVE experience i have ever had at a dental office. I live about 30 min away with many other options for treatment MUCH closer and I’ll be coming here from now. Simply because of the amazing staff and excellent care i received. I came in on a Saturday for an emergency appt, i was not prepared had little of my information and the staff took care of everything made it so easy and took care of everything. I truly cannot speak highly enough of this office and the employees here. Choose this gentle dental without hesitation you will not be disappointed
