These Portland dentists provide superb service
Whether you live in Beaverton or South Burlingame, you’re looking for great service, especially regarding your family’s dental care.
Here’s the latest Post of Happiness for great service from Portland dentists as selected by the Angie’s List Newsroom staff.
Jeffery Burns is all smiles, thanks to Dr. Rod Johnson of Portland, Ore. “After a lengthy period of not seeing a regular dentist and having an unfinished implant, I chose Dr. Johnson to do an exam, cleaning and to let me know if he could finish the implant,” he says. “Within 2 weeks, I had clean teeth, a finished implant, and a new dentist! Not once did I get a lecture for not finishing the implant or the length of time between dental appointments.
"The staff was friendly, extremely competent and treated me like I had been a regular client for many years, even though I had just met them," Burns says. "I rarely make medical recommendations, but will definitely refer Dr. Johnson to my circle.”
A crowning achievement
Dr. Margaret Boone of Wilsonville, Ore. brushed up a positive experience for Ted Jones. “I went in for a cleaning, to replace broken filling and crown a broken tooth,” he says. “I moved and was apprehensive after being with my last dentist for 20 years. I broke a tooth and cracked a filling. I needed to have a lot of work done. It was as good as a lot of dental work can be.
"I will return, and the rest of my family has moved to her" he says. "Dr. Boone and her staff are nice, very competent and did not rush their work. I was impressed.”
A full-service dentist
Dr. Donald Kim of Vancouver, Wash. provides positive experiences during every appointment, says Jeannie Burchill. “Dr. Donald Kim has been my family dentist for 12 years now,” she says. “He has cleaned teeth, filled cavities, replaced bridges and crowns, done cosmetic work and successfully placed dental implants.
"We’ve been extremely happy with the work done by Dr. Donald Kim," she says. "He has state-of-the-art equipment. He explains what he is doing as he performs the task. His staff is very friendly.”
Ensuring a good fit
John Hann has been a patient of Dr. Dianna Applegate of Portland, Ore. for the last three years. “My latest appointment was a routine cleaning and checkup a couple of weeks ago,” he says. “Dr. Applegate is knowledgeable and has an approachable, easygoing personality.
"Fortunately, I’ve only needed two major procedures in the last few years, both crowns," Hann says. "Each one was prepared and installed expertly. I appreciate the time she takes after setting a crown to ensure it fits just right. I had a horrible crown experience at a previous dentist and have learned to appreciate it when things go well.”
