HI, I just moved to Portland and I am looking for a dentist in SE. I live near Mall 205, but I think anywhere in southeast would be fine. I may need to have some fillings replaced and I didn't trust my last dentist to do it.
The only dentist I have been to is Green Apple Dental. Are they awesome? meh. Do they do the work reliably? Seem to. I know a lot of people really like them, and they have an office on 82nd and an office downtown.
I see the folks at Mint Dental on Morrison, and they're really wonderful!! I have some pretty extreme dental anxiety, and they're great about being patient with me. They also use composite fillings instead of amalgam, and use a whole host of other green practices. The last time I was there, I needed a filling, and they provided me with an iPod and some laughing gas to help me though. It was a really positive experience, an I'd highly recommend them!
