Best experience I've had at a dentist since I was a kid...albeit it was just for a cleaning, but everyone made me feel comfortable. The office setting was very relaxing and everyone was very nice. They were willing and able to squeeze in a cleaning after my exam and x-rays even though it was close to closing time. The bonus was the hand-dipped paraffin wax treatment for my cracked hands!
They have a great staff from the front desk all the way to the dentist. Being located downtown... It's great that they validate parking. From the hand wax treatment to the massaging chair it calms your nerves of being "at the dentist" They have made me wish that my insurance would cover 12 cleaning a year.
I am very sincere in my report to say
that my last vist to the dentist was that of no changes, no new allergies, no change of husband or lack there of. I did learn that there was a very good dentist .He was very nice. So, I was relieved to know I was not showing up with a mouthful of issues and I of course did not want him to be the one to tell me that I had them. Thankful for no fillings to be fixed or cavity issues of any sort.
-still good to know that my favorite hygienist is there to take care of me
-my favorite parking spot was easily identified and secured for me upon arrival
-my billing system has changed as I do now have a small amount of dental insurance available to me so I was happy to let the ladies doing the bills update my file.
-my husband is will be going next week for his dental check up so we will see if he also has a good report.
-I hope he does not have any cavities as I would love to use the money for a trip to Ireland.
Too bad my company does not provide dental insurance but one of my coworkers recommended Green Apple Dental. I was able to join their membership plan and got a huge discount on some fillings that I was putting off for the last couple years. Great staff and doctors, so happy I found this place.
I would like a country ipod or more diverse music please.
I have a very "anti-dentite" personality and I have to say I avoid the dentist at all costs. The reason I am posting this is to say that the people here are very very accommodating to people like myself. It also helped that Dr. Kim has a great sense of humor and did his best to keep me distracted from my fears. I can't say that I look forward to going to the dentist again but when I do I'll definitely book another appointment with Dr. David.
I absolutely love this dental office! I have always hated the dentist and for many reasons this place is amazing! Just walking in it is so well designed, I love the decor! Also the staff is extremely friendly not to mention my perfect cleaning experience!!!! Thank you Green Apple I am so glad I found you and so are my teeth!!!!!
I truly am a dental phobic person. I do not enjoy the thought of even visiting the office just to take xrays or for an easy cleaning and polishing. If I have to go to the dentist, then it is becauase I had already been thinking about going for over a year. That being said, I now did visit Green Apple Dental and think that dental offices have changed since I last visited them in the past. There still is that awkward feeling of laying back in the chair while the dentist pokes around at your teeth and writes all the concerns down but I did feel that it was not as long and arduous as I had remembered. My visit was mostly a check up and then a cleaning on a seperate day. The hygienist is very good and extremely gentle so that was a positve aspect definately.
I found Green Apple Dental through Citysearch and I have to agree with all the positive reviews I found here. The staff is also friendly and fun to joke with. The office itself is clean, nice and feels more like going to a house than a dentist's office. Dr. Bird is very friendly, really listens to all your concerns, and takes the time to explain everything to you. The prices were very inexpensive as well - which was a big concern for someone like me who does not have dental insurance.
I'm so happy to have found a great new dentist!
Hands down, best dentist in PDX.
Amazing place!! After going to a number of crack pot dentists when I first moved to Portland, Green Apple Dental was a fresh change. I would recommend this office to anyone in a heartbeat for general dentistry. Thumbs up goes to how quickly I was able to get an appointment! I got an appointment a few days after I called! That's unheard of, most times it takes 2wks-a month after you call, so I was excited and impressed about that;)!
They are extremely professional, good with reminders, and all around helpful in explaining insurance, billing, etc. Their office is clean and nice. Also, they have weekend appointments!!
Otherwise, the cleanings are nicely done. They do not try to sell you on procedures you do not need. I've had multiple Dr.s over the year and have seen no difference in quality between them. I think Dr. Kang is extremely sensitive to making sure to select good people to staff his office.
If this is in your hood or you just plane hated your prior Dr. as I did, go here for a more positive experience.
