Read what patients are saying about St. Helens Dental Center.

I can't say enough positive things about the entire team at Dr. Van Gordon's office. For someone like me who still dreads dental work they make it a calm & painless experience. The team works efficiently, getting you in & out quickly, but they maintain focus on your comfort & ensuring there is no pain. Could I please give them a sixth star?

First visit and was extremely satisfied with their service. Friendly and most of all, upfront and clear of what needed to be done and cost comparison. Appreciated calling my insurance company to get the amounts covered to help prioritize my plan. It was nice to have the no surprises! Thank you for your professional and honesty! My only regret is not coming to them sooner!

Compassionate, gentle, thorough, and takes time to explain treatment options. Going to the dentist is positive experience.

You all are professional, kind, and very friendly. Everyone at your office makes it evident of your desire to provide quality care for each patient. You take any concerns that we might have very seriously! You helped through all my fears, and now I look forward to each appointment. I highly recommend you to anyone who asks for recommendations. Thank you!

I called as a new patient with an off and on tooth ache and the front desk personnel not only got me an appointment within a few days she also emailed me all the necessary paperwork. I filled it out and returned it via email! When I arrived for my appointment, I was greeted with a smile and all of my information was entered so I didn't have to wait! The Dental Assistant was super helpful and friendly! X-rays were quick and Dr. Van Gordon was also very nice, straightforward and honest about the work I needed. I need to be referred to a specialist for some work so after my appointment the front desk again was quick to help. I even called back to get advice about where I chose to get my referral and Becky set my mind at ease to go to the consultation but that if the work could not be done within a month to continue to shop around. I actually am looking forward to my next visit already. It feels great to have my time respected and my needs front and center. Thank you!

Only my first visit. When I explained my problem to them, they were able to get me in as soon as possible. Everyone, from the moment you walk in, is very friendly and professional. Great customer service. Dr. Van Gordon, is very professional and took the time to explain everything and answer any questions that I had.

I have always been happy with the professionalism at Dr. Van Gordon’s Office. The hygienist was careful to explain why I need to be careful and use preventative precautions against bone loss. I feel valued when I leave his office because they care about my needs.

I had my first appt here today and will admit I was scared to death. I have an overwhelming fear of the dentist ever since serving in the Army. From the moment I walked in, I knew I was in good hands. The thing that impressed me the most is how genuine the staff is. They obviously love their jobs and actually care about their patients. Every one involved with my care was patient, kind, understanding, empathetic and thorough! They all have a very caring nature and know how to put you at ease. I am so grateful I came here. I don’t want to go to the dentist but these folks have really helped me make it happen. I will go back for my next appointment, only because the staff here is phenomenal.

I woke up with a throbbing toothache the day before a holiday weekend. The very efficient office staff worked me in to Dr. Van Gordon’s schedule. I needed a difficult root canal and they got me worked in the same day to a specialist in Beaverton. Thanks to everyone for helping me to avoid a trip to the hospital and a serious infection! My whole family goes to Michael Van Gordon. He is gentle for anyone that fears a trip to the dentist. His entire staff is always very professional and welcoming. I cannot imagine going anywhere else for regular dental care!

(Rebecca H. 5 weeks ago)

I've had some bad dental experiences in the past, so It was with some trepidation that I entered Michael Van Gordon's dental practice. The staff was friendly and seemed knowledgeable as well as professional. The place has a positive feel, like the employees like there jobs.as well as their patients. This was my first visit, but I felt good about it and that was a nice surprise to me. I didn't think going to the dentist could be nice. I was wrong.

(Clark N. 5 weeks ago)

I look forward to my cleaning appointments! The kind staff always makes me feel at ease and comfortable, plus the relaxing setting of the office helps as well. Having worked in the dental profession many years ago, I am very aware and somewhat particular about what goes on, and I have complete confidence in the entire staff. Michael is great, and everyone working there seems to actually enjoy their job! I look forward to visiting again in 6 months!

In for a cleaning today. Friendly and professional staff from the minute you walk thru the door. Tami was my hygienist today. She was informative, caring, and thorough. Dr. Michael has great bedside manner and communicates clearly and respectfully!

My wife and I are not the easiest clients to accommodate. You see we live in a motor home and travel around the country extensively. They willingly work over their schedule to work us in when we chance to come through town. All they need is a two or three week lead usually. Yesterday we were getting our annual cleaning when it was discovered that I had a really old silver filling that showed signs of leaking. We were headed out of town as soon as we finished and had a mostly inflexible travel schedule. The Doctor and his staff squeezed me in and created a crown and installed it. This was probably their lunch time. I sincerely thank you all.

My husband, myself and daughter have been going to Michael Van Gordon for about 2 years. Everyone in the office is friendly and extremely professional. I appreciate that they are honest and ethical about the services that need to be done. Unfortunately, I cannot say that about some of our previous dentist. I highly recommend Dr. Van Gordon and his amazing team!
