I've been coming to SmileKeepers over a year had and still have five star experience with them all doctors assistant's are very friendly, politely, patience and detailed with treatment/process procedure etc. Office staff are very friendly, consistent and so patience with clients and if they booked with other clients schedule they will do the best to fit you in to schedule, even if you walked-in with emergency they also super helpful to fit you in as soon as possible, it depends if client canceled their appointment, or didn't came over 15 mins or they finished earlier with current client and right away fit you in.

Dr. Means is the best dentist I have ever had. All the staff and the front desk Cheryl are amazing people. I've never had good experiences with dentists before. I had all my teeth removed to get dentures and I was very scared. The whole procedure was great. I didn't feel a things!! I recommend seeing them for your dental needs!

I had an emergency that involved extractions I was in a great deal of pain. they saw me promptly and though they were incredibly busy they kept me informed during the entire process made it very easy. I don't write reviews often if ever but this level of service deserves a paragraph to say the least. I will be a patient here as long as I have teeth.

I went to Smile Keepers Dental office in Salem Oregon. Address is: 1251 Lancaster Dr NE Suite A I needed a refill and Dr. Paul Kinghorn worked a miracle on my tooth. On my previous visit he told me they had to check under my silver cap to see if the tooth was okay and strong enough to hold a filling, or they might have to pull it out. Dr. Kinghorn removed my silver cap from my tooth that was around 40yrs old, he saved my tooth. He filled it and he actually shaped the tooth so it looked like a tooth. He smoothed it out and polished it. I could not believe my eyes. My mother who has dentures told me “there’s nothing like having your own teeth” . He recommended a crown for near future. I almost fell back when the front desk gave me the estimate on the crown.. It was NOT expensive! Dr. Kinghorn is very knowledgeable, he explained in detail how crowns vary. One crown looks white like a regular crown and people sometimes can tell it’s a crown while the other crown has sort of a see thru look to it and looks more natural. This Dr. works miracles and they are NOT expensive like other places. His assistant was really nice and very professional. The staff is really nice, they make you feel at home. They also call you a few days before to remind you of your dentist appointment.... I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR. PAUL KINGHORN. V.R 3/5/2020

The staff at smile keepers are friendly and caring to their patients. They are thorough in explaining the type of treatment you need and explain it in a way you can understand what they're talking about. The clinic is booked for 3 to 4 months out which means they offer quality care and service ..Smile Keepers gets a gold medal in my book. I worked in the medical and dental field and customer service is number 1. Thank you staff at 408 Lancaster ne.

Dr. Kinghorn and his assistant, Amanda, are the best, most compassionate, quick, but excellent, professional Dentist and assistant team that I’ve ever had. I had an appointment booked for 2 months, and even when he wasn’t feeling well, he knew it was difficult for me to get into him with a new job in Portland, and stayed to treat my tooth. In the past, when I was in emergent pain, Dr. Kinghorn stayed late and Amanda reworked schedules to help me, and they went out of their way to get me in. I can’t recommend him, Ananda, or this Smile Keepers location staff enough! Amanda is also a true patient advocate and I really appreciate this level of patient care and rapport building she and Dr. Kinghorn both do and show. Thank you guys!

I would recommend because I have had a tooth pulled with no problems. however 10 days ago I had 2 teeth pulled. i was sent home with no meds of any kind and my mouth became infected the same day. I've been dealing with pain ever since and it seems this place can care less
