My two new caps are perfect. Very efficient, modern office. Caring yet very synchronized services.

I highly recommend Hillside Dental at Bethany--best experience I've had with my dental care. I've been in for both cleanings and fillings. The office is very clean and well-organized and the staff have a rare blend of professionalism and personality. Dr. Forster is both highly skilled and knowledgeable, and fun to be around (as is the whole staff).

Perhaps the most important part though is that they are all good listeners and do a wonderful job of assessing my needs and meeting or exceeding them, often even anticipating what I might need.

I'm pleased to give them my business and my recommendations!

Dr. Forster is the best dentist I have ever been to and I have been to a lot.
He gives very sound advice, does not recommend things that you do not really need, is very gentle and very professional. I recommend him to everyone I know. We live in SE portland, but the drive to see him and his staff is definitely worth it.
I take my two children to him as well and they LOVE going to the dentist, which to me is such a gift!!

Please be careful. I hope no one has to go through what I went through. He seemed so nice and his office was so clean and modern, but it is the dentist that counts. He, for some reason, refused to get my old records from my previous dentist, and allowed my cavity to become a crack which eventually required a root canal, then an extraction, and an eventual implant. The whole thing will cost me close to $10,000.

But even more agonizing than the cost and the incredible pain I had to suffer, was the way I was treated. Anybody can make a mistake, and he initially felt bad, but as he realized that there was a way to lie and not take responsibility, he became rude and quite conniving. He tried to obtain waivers and harassed me as he tried so hard to avoid undue publicity. He lied to the board and clearly showed me that he was more concerned with profits than with the care of his patients.

I still cry over the treatment I received and I hope others won't be fooled by his initial presentation. Anyone can be a good dentist if there are no complications, but one's true character comes out when there is difficulty. I hope, for your sake that there is no mishap, but if there is, you will understand my experience.

We first met Dr. Forster when he was working at Gentle Dental in Tigard. There, he did a complete restoration of my husbands
mouth, including filling in a large gap between his two front teeth, which had the potential to look very bad if done incorrectly. but, Dr. Forster did a fabulous job and my husband now faces each day with an abundance of self confidence that has helped him become a very successful business owner. When Dr. Forster opened his own practice, we followed him and have since brought myself and my 3 year old son on to be his patients. He is always so efficient, relatable and fun, as well as a great dentist! Recently my son had to have two fillings and he and his assistant did a wonderful job at keeping our son calm and relaxed during a very intense procedure. I am so impressed with Dr. Forster and his staff. We will continue to see him as our family dentist for a long time to come!

I have been going to Dr. Forster for about two years. He is very kind and personable. I had an issue with my insurance, Dr. Forster and his staff were very helpful in solving the issue. His office staff are great.

We're new the area and I chose Hillside because they advertised such modern equipment. I have not been disappointed. It's the highest-tech office I've been to. Dr. Forster is good with kids and adults alike. I believe he went to UCSF for dental school which is also a plus. I wanted to make sure to write a review to refute what looks like an old review related to what looks like the prior owner of the practice, but not Dr. Forster.

I was just recently seen by the new dentist who bought this practice and I must say he is outstanding. Very professional and gentle.
I have been afraid of denists for years. Dr. Forster was very easy to work with and explained tretament to me very well, in a manner I understood.
His office is very organized, very clean and very upscale. I enjoyed his techniques. My appointment was on time as well.
I will be referring patients to this office.

I was lured to Hillside Dental with promises of free teeth whitening and full insurance coverage. 5 MONTHS after my appointment, I received a bill for $408.00!! I was able to get them to cut the bill in half, but what happened to my insurance coverage? It turns out that they didn?t accept my insurance after all (even though I was told they did prior to my appointment from the office staff and during the appointment by Dr. Jennifer Kong). Needless to say, I won?t be returning. I prefer to see medical professionals that can be trusted.

This coming from a complete dental phobe! I saw the dentist today and was incredibly impressed. She is very personable. I felt like she was very interested in my comfort and my dental health. She listened intently to everything I had to say and addressed each of my concerns. She even gave me a lavender heated neck pillow and put on a lavender aromatherapy during my visit. I have trouble with sensitivity during teeth cleaning & she made 100% certain I was comfy. I haven't had such a good dentist in a LONG time! Very very happy to have found her.

Pros: technology, location, personality

Cons: you must pay upfront, but they will reimburse you after insurance comes through
