The best dentist in Portland, barnone. I went in for a consult & several cleanings and not only are the staff very professional, but Dr. Mika actually takes time to sit down and do a thorough examination as well as sit back and talk with you about your oral health and how comfortable you are with her suggestions.

I think their prices are just and fairly reflect their services and effort in giving you the smile you want. I've seen them take extra time and money to make things right with other patients. They always go above and beyond when working with other providers in coordination and treatment plans.

The Pearl District Dental space is beautiful and relaxing - much like a spa. You never have to wait more than 5 minutes for an assistant or their hygienist to accompany you back to your room and their chair-side manner is exquisite. Suzie and Eli at the front desk are super helpful and always make me feel comfortable when I visit. It seriously feels like you've entered a 5-star resort when you walk in the doors.

I will never see another dentist again as long as I live in the Portland area. Pearl District Dental will always win my vote and I plan on recommending everyone I know to go there.

If you're looking for a dentist who never double books appointments, has more knowledge in the cosmetic and general dental industry than your typical dentist down the street due to having the highest potential credentials and accolades, spends ample time with you as well as an understanding, generous and helpful staff who is also very knowledgeable and makes you feel comfortable - look no further... Pearl District Dental is a dream come true when I thought I would never again like, let alone enjoy, visiting the dentist.

Dr. Mika Miyamoto has been my general dentist since I moved to Portland six years ago and I couldn't be happier with her work. She has dealt with some very complex restoration challenges, including multiple implant crowns and restoring my entire mouth from old amalgam fillings etc. and done a superb job with inlays and crowns. Her crowning achievement is to replace a crown on my front tooth (I've been told these are the hardest to do) and she did an amazing job. The result is always perfectly matched and natural, and I was involved every step of the way in deciding what to do and when. The cost is on the higher end but well worth it - I once researched it and when you focus on the "difference" it is worth it. Simply put, Dr. Miyamoto is an artist. The staff is professional and supportive, and Marjen is a welcome addition as a dedicated and very competent hygienist. Dr. Miyamoto's work is of the highest quality, and I would recommend her without hesitation to someone who care about high quality work for their teeth.

Wow! There is so much to say about this dentist. You walk into the office and can feel the positive energy. Every member of the staff makes it a priority for you to be comfortable, relaxed, and well cared for. Attention to detail is phenomenal. What makes this office so special is that the doctor and every staff member really make you feel welcome and it??s very personal. The confidence of each member of the staff is re-assuring and each of the staff is very considerate. As far as the treatment, it is so reliable. I??ve had a crown done and it is the best dental experience I??ve ever had ?? I knew up front exactly what was going on and the crown feels fantastic ?? goodbye broken down old filling. My wife did Invisalign treatment with them and her teeth are looking awesome. I'm very glad to have made the switch to Dr. Miyamoto??s office. The work is top notch and only the best. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED PORTLAND DENTIST!

I DID NOT SCHEDULE A FOLLOW UP APPOINTMENT!!!This dentist had so many coding errors in billing and issued a very bad mouth guard piece - billed as a full mouth guard on and on- I even reported the issues to ODS! So I had no intention of going back - and had already seen another dentist. All that and they actually billed me for a missed appointment! I had no intention of going back - called them immediately and told them I had already seen another dentist and certainly made no future appt with Mika. They just kept billing - "sent the next 2 bills back as incorrect billing- no appointment made"- -Now I am fed up= over a year later I am still getting a bill for an appointment I never made! This is disrespectful -they are wasting paper and postage. I have reported them to BBB, ODS, and now am writing reviews to let people know they unethical and unprofessional. Good luck if you ever quit going - they will send you a "Bill" reminder. E.

I was referred to Dr. Mika at Pearl District Dental by a co-worker and have stayed on as a patient ever since. Her knowledge of cosmetic and restorative dentistry is tops. Dr. Mika and her staff are incredibly friendly and well organized, the appointments are always on time The experiences that I have had with Dr. Mika has been the BEST. I'm so pleased with her that I go to her even though she is out of the network of my insurance. She informs you of what is going on and what needs to be done to makes sure that you are getting the BEST dental care around...Oh did I mention that I come to her Portland office all the way from N. Vancouver?

Since I moved to Portland over 5 yrs ago, Dr Mika and her staff have provided me with excellent dental care. I've had my share of dental problems over the years, including invisalign treatment to straighten my teeth and the replacement of old fillings with porcelain crowns, and I have been completely satisfied with the results. Dr Mika is a true expert in the field of dentistry and she will go above and beyond to take care of her patients. Her staff is very friendly, attentive and extremely helpful when it comes to dealing with insurance companies. I know I can trust Dr. Mika and her staff. Thank you Dr. Mika for great results and for restoring my confidence in dentists.

This place is seriously awesome, which feels bizarre to say about a dental office, but they deserve it.
First, the office is extremely modern and clean. The office staff was so friendly and helpful that it is clear customer service is stressed in the office. When I first arrived, I was escorted to a private room where I drank complimentary coffee while I filled out the new patient paperwork.
During my actual cleaning, the hygenist was again extremely nice and went out of her way to thoroughly answer the handful of questions I had about some recent sensitivity. It is obvious that they use very high-tech, new equipment throughout the office and the actual cleaning was done with a new type of electric cleaner (not the manual metal pics) and it took a fraction of the time, probably 25-33% of the time a traditional cleaning takes, but my teeth were definitely just as clean.
When the dentist, Dr. Mika, came by she took the time to thoroughly introduce herself, ask me some questions and genuinely showed interest in my dental care instead of rushing in and out.
Dr Mika has navigated me through an implant procedure that I was initially very anxious about and I'm overjoyed with the results. She and her staff have offered advice and support along the way and I would never have trusted all of this dental work to another dentist
I have already recommended other people to this office and will never go anywhere else!

Dr. Mika Miyamoto??s office is literally like a state of art experience. First and foremost, Dr. Miyamoto is definitely one of the best dentists in Portland. From the way she performs the procedures and the final success, you can tell her excellence in her field, education and her personal touch in cosmetic work. My husband and I had a few fillings and crowns done; amazing results. Her approach to you as a patient is so relaxing and educative. Her staff also satisfies you with an excellent job on insurance work, explaining the co-pays and procedures cost breakdown. I've been to a few dentists in the Portland area before, but she surely is a pro in her field. I highly recommend her.

Simply put, GO TO THE OREGON BOARD OF DENTISTRY and see the DISCIPLINARY ACTION on 23 Allegations to include "making an untrue statement to the Board". AVOID "The detailed complete workups" that are suppose to include an 1 and 1/2 evaluation with this Dentist. All the pictures, molds, evaluations, and "Special tendon and joint workups" that is suppose to do and YOU DO NOT GET is a farce. AND I FELL FOR IT 2 TIMES. NEVER had an appointment with the Dentist the first time. Just a 22 minute over the front counter of general stuff the Dr. will look at with the evaluation FROM THE DR's Husband who is the office manager. Never got the 3rd one as well as the OFFICE CANCELLED my appts 3X on me, saying they the 1) Dr. had not started my evaluation, 2) She has not coordinated therapy yet for proper evaluation with my orthodontists. Was promised a 3rd time with an appt and they wanted to reschedule that saying "The Dr will work all weekend long while she watches her children" (Husband was in Lebanon, middle east". After this, we canceled the VISA payment as we were getting the run around AGAIN. Now they are trying to obtain payment on something they only produced AFTER I transfered my care to a different Dr's. office. LOOK UP THE BOARD ACTIONS AGAINST THIS DENTIST OVER A GOOD PERIOD OF TIME. 22 Unacceptable Patient Care and 1 Untrue statement to the Board. CONTACT THE BOARD at 971-673-3200 and ask for Inspector Paul if you feel you have had bad treatment, inappropriate billing, or simply paid for treatment that you never received in a timely fashion. Watch how often they put Arestin disks in your mouth, how often they want you to do bitewings and full mouth xrays, and MAKE SURE YOU WATCH HOW THEY BILL YOUR INSURANCE (regular cleaning versus periodontal cleaning versus actual scaling/root planing). She was written up for violations from 2003-2005 and Untruthful Statement to Board on 2005-2007 License Renewal. Bad situation when the office manager is the Dentists' husband and he is the one that promotes the "Specialized tendon/joint manipulation case studies". He should not be the one given you medical information/opinions and also showing other patient's pictures on the computer showing what they can do for you.

I am extremely satisfied with the work Dr. Mika Miyamoto-Shemali did on my teeth. I moved to Portland about one year ago from the Bay area. I came to her office for the first time in pain and discomfort. A San Francisco dentist, a reputable one, had removed my original crowns in a very painful manner and placed temporary crowns incorrectly, leaving me in a lot of pain. Fortunately, I found Dr. Miyamoto-Shemali. She masterfully and painlessly, removed the incorrectly placed temporaries by the former dentist, placed new temporaries, correcting the bite and fitting of the temporary crowns. The pressure and pain in my gums and teeth were immediately gone. I was able to go to lunch after the procedure with my wife and enjoy eating without pain for the first time in months. My wife and I are so happy with Dr. Miyamoto-Shemali??s work that we have referred all of our friends and family members to her. The office is beautiful, relaxing, and super clean. The staff are professional and accommodating. My permanent crowns which Dr. Miyamoto-Shemali placed look great and are comfortable. My gums have healed. We highly recommend this SUPER DENTIST to every one. We also saved lots of money by not having gotten implants unnecessarily as was recommend by the former dentist.

Beware of this dental office. Every dentist is licensed by the governing board of the state in which they practice and this information is available online. Check out what the Board has to say about this dentist. In addition, most places require a day or two advance notice for cancellations. This office loves to make money off of cancelled appointments, even during the winter months when some of us get the flu and have to cancel a dental appointment. This office requires that you know of that impending illness a week in advance or else you are going to be charged a costly fee, even if it is the your first visit. Not even a warning are a review of their office policy. I have found a new dentist and plan to stay away from Pearl District Dental.

I came to Pearl District Dental after had neglected my dental care for much longer than I care to admit. At first, I was very uncomfortable about finding a new dentist. Dr Mika's patient reviews as well as the sheer number of reviews spoke volumes to me. In 2007, I finally made the call for an appt. Dr Mika and her staff were very understanding about my nervousness during my first visit. She is an unbelievably gentle dentist who is careful to stay in tune with the patient's needs. If she sees that you might be in the slightest discomfort, she asks how you are doing and if she sees that you need her to stop or give you a break, she does. She is also very particular about the quality of her work. I was getting a crown and when she was placing the crown in place, she wasn't satisfied with how the lab had made it. She ended up sending it back to the lab to have it made again so it fit properly and to her satisfaction. The entire staff is very kind and puts you at ease in a very relaxed atmosphere. I feel like I've been visiting this practice much longer than just under 2 years. During this time, she has worked with me to complete all the necessary work that I needed.

Thanks, Dr. Mika!

My old dentist retired and his replacement was less then stellar. I was forced to find another dentist to finish my treatment plan. I made an appointment with Dr. Mika at Pearl District Dental and was impressed from the minute I met her. She took her time in looking over my teeth and gave me what she thought was the best plan for my mouth. Her treatment plan was 10000 times better then what the old dr suggested (He wanted to remove some of my teeth and give me a partial.) I wasnt comfortable with this but thought it was the only way. When Dr. Mika took a look she said you dont need your teeth removed, lets fill them and thats what we have begun. She's very honest and tells you like it is. When she administed the anestisia I didnt feel a thing and usually after a dentist appt your teeth throb from being worked on, I was shocked that I didnt feel a thing after she was done. I'm actually excited to go to her office and get the work done I needed. You will not be dissapointed.
If you are looking for a drive through dentist who you see for 5 mins and hes gone again then try someone else, but if you are looking for a dentist who truly cares about what she's doing then try Dr Mika. Her Reviews speak for themselves..Thats what caught my eye!!!

The best complement I can offer is that my brother is a dentist, but I wouldn't even consider making a change. If you go anywhere else, you'll be making a big mistake and miss the chance of a lifetime to be treated at a level unheard of these days . This office is really enjoyable to visit from the front desk to the Hygienist to Dr. Mika. All are personable and take the time to make the experience painless. I knew I was in good hands, but until I had my front teeth crowned, I didn't know how good. I dreaded it based on horrible experience from work done on them by other dentists, but it was a walk in the park and was beautiful work. At my age, I've been to many dentists and none can compare. Such attention to detail and concern for comfort is unheard of. Their was no pain dealing with the business people as well. Eli and Rie were helpful to an extent I haven't experienced in any medical field for any reason. They worked at making the financial arrangements as workable as possible.
And to those who complain about appointment cancellation fee, you may wish to try another clinic like my brother's. He actually tells me he reluctantly likes it when his patients cancel because the other patients that he double or triple booked don't complain about waiting over 30 minutes to see him. In contract, I've never waited more than 5 minutes for an appointment with the hygniest or Dr. Mika.
My job took me to a different country about a year ago. I still come in to Pearl District Dental for my dental care.

Every dentist is licenced by the governing board of the state in which they practice and this information is available online. Check out what the Board has to say about your dentist before you put your trust in him or her.

Most places require a day or two advance notice for cancellations. This office is ONE WEEK. Sometimes during the winter months some of us come down w/ seasonal colds that render us unable to sit in a dental chair for a procedure. This office requires that you know of that impending illness a week in advance or else you are going to be HIT with a VERY LARGE cancellation fee. Also, they do it on the FIRST CANCELLED VISIT. Most places give you a warning on the first offense but not Pearl District Dental!

I recently moved here here from Chicago I have never seen another dentist. I have seen the same one since I was a kid. My best friend referred me to Dr Mika at Pearl Distrit Dental. I made the call and scheduled an appointment. I was so surprised I felt as if everyone has known me just like my dentist at home. I was so comfortable and all my anxieties washed away. I loved the experience. I called my dentist in Chicago and told him that he had competition. Dr Mika and her entire staff are absolutely MARVELOUS Thanks to my girlfriend and I will be definitely telling my co-workers and whom ever else will listen.

If you can't make your appt they will charge you a 200 dollar fee even if you make it and cancel it on the same day. Not only was that not addressed to me once when calling to schedule an appt, who mind you has never once been in there, but then they werent even nice about trying to work with me to reschedule. No wonder you have to give your credit card number to them to reserve your spot. I think it is rude and inconsiderate of them to not mention that they would be charging a fee if I couldn't make it from the beggining. I will bad mouth them and never reccomend them ever! I understand it is usual for most places to charge a fee for last min cancelations but considering I am a brand new paitent and had never been in before I think there should have been a waiver or something to say hey this is a one time deal but next time you will be charged. I am mad that I took time to read and review 10 dentist and chose this place and they do that to me. Not far nor nice.

Thank you Dr. Miyamoto, for seeing me on your lunch break to take care of my emergency. I don't normally write reviews because it is obvious that anyone can write whatever they want, true or not. But I felt had to write about the great care I have gotten from "Dr. Mika" (as her loving patients call her).
This time around I had an accident at work early in the morning. I got hit on the mouth and two of my front teeth broke and they were jagged and sharp. So I called her office and the receptionist said the day was all full, she put me on hold and then came back to tell me that No Problem, the doctor will see you at noon. What a relief!
So I came in with my broken teeth and she did what she had to do. I am a big chicken when it comes to needles but with Dr. Mika, she is very gentle. She finished taking the molds and sent me back to work with some temporary veneers that looked really good. My staff thought I had the permanents because they looked so good. I told them these were only temporary. So I could get back to work, no problem.
Shortly after that, I went to a periodontist's office to have my teeth cleaned. They marveled at how good her work is. I even had to point it out to the hygienist.
When you are in to see Pearl District Dental, you know this is someone that cares about you. I see how all the rest of her patients give her a big hug when the they come to their appointments. I have referred several friends to her and all have been really pleased. Dr. Mika is the best of the best.

Nice staff members, and dentist. Dr Miyamoto-Shemali and her husband. I was a patient at this office when they first opened in the Pearl. They have state of the art equipment. I've had many dentist in my life and found a great one since I left this place. They told me I had 6mm periodontal pockets which I was upset when I found out I was crying on that dental chair. I told her husband Eli the office manager I don't know if he is still the manager. He would talk me out of it and said no I think you should just get the procedure done her. I went to a different doctor come to find out I didn't have 6mm pockets it was like 4mm. And they talked me into replacing my amalgam (silver fillings) for composite (tooth color filings). They try to take advantage of you her and want to make money. Don't ever go to this place. There are way better dentist out there.

I am a proud patient at Pearl District Dental. I researched many dental clinics in Portland prior to my dental exam & I am 200% impressed and pleased to have selected them as my dental clinic of choice. They have by far surpassed my expectations.

I can only say two words to describe my satisfaction...Outstanding work, performed by Dr. Mika and her team!!! I used to hate going to the dentist because of my past experience. However, my perception of dental work has completely changed ever since my first visit in Dr. Mika's office. Great team of professionals, very relaxing and friendly atmosphere, and above all painless service. All the work necessary (which was a lot) was performed with great precision and professionalism. Everything was completed in a timely manner. Dr. Mika even managed to shorten the period to fit in my schedule due to traveling plans I had for the summer. If you are looking for someone that cares about you, your teeth, and your smile Dr. Mika is the right dentist. A perfectionist that will go above and beyond to make sure you are satisfied with your smile.

Dr. Miyamoto-Shemali is fantastic! I actually heard about the practice from citysearch; I was so impressed by her reviews that I had to check it out for myself.
For me, choosing Dr. Miyamoto-Shemali at Pearl District Dental is THE ONLY option. This team is truly passionate about dentistry, and will forever change your outlook on the profession. They are friendly and knowlegeable and will spend time getting to know you, and work with you to exceed your expectations from treatment. I would recommend Dr. Miyamoto-Shemali and her team, to anyone looking for a dentist. You will not regret this decision.
I have had the following procedures done in the past few months, and couldnt be happier):
- 4 fillings (tooth color for cosmetic appearance)
- Whitenting
- Crowns: 2 upper front teeth
Also, to give you an idea of the caliber of dentist that Dr. Miyamoto-Shemali is; she has recently been chosen among to top dentists in the US to be a visiting faculty member for one of the top post-graduate dental schools in the world. This is quite an honor to be selected from thousands candidates across the country!
Having said that, she is so much into improving her skills through continuing education that she seems to be gone a lot. I had one instance when I needed to have some urgent work done and she was out of state for a class. Her staff referred me to another dentist in the area who was also top-notch and he worked closely with Dr. Miyamoto-Shemali to take care of my problem.

Pros: Caring, attention to detail, excellent results

Cons: Limited hours (due to taking classes)

Dr. Mika at Pearl District Dental is the best dentist you will find! I have been seeing her for about five years now. She is the best dentist I've been to. She is very attentive to detail and the comfort level of the patient. She definitely goes above and beyond most dentists I have seen previously.
Level of work: Dr. Mika is an artist. She has done a lot of work on my mouth and everything not only functions and works the same or much better than before, but I love the way my teeth look afterward. She has replaced quite a few of my ugly black fillings. Now it is a pleasure to smile and I don't hate looking at my teeth every time I brush or floss (I still don't do that as often as Dr. Mika would like) .
Seating time: Never waited more than one or two minutes for my appointment to begin. Once you start, they are excellent and keeping you informed during the entire appointment.
Atmosphere: Amazing. Not only does the place look like a magazine cover, but it is very clean and well kept. In my opinion, this reflects on the level of care and sterilization. Though I never felt decor was that important in a dental clinic - I never knew the difference till I had emergency work in another clinic while I was travelling. What a difference. I think I am spoiled now.
Staff: Dr. Mika's office team has gone to great lengths to ensure that you are comfortable from the moment you walk into the office until the moment you leave. What a treat. They even call you at home after your appointment just to make sure everything feels right as the numbness wears off.
Insurance: My insurance coverage has changed over the years, and sometimes it has not been very good. But I prefer to just foot the bill during those times because some things you can't put a price on.
Overall, you won't find a dentist or doctor in Portland that has the committment to customer service like Dr. Mika does. I would - and do - recommend her to anyone I know!

Dr. Mika's office is literally like a state of art experience. First and foremost, Dr. Mika is definitely one of the best dentists in the Portland area. From the way she performs the procedures and the final success, you can tell her excellence in her field, education and her personal touch in cosmetic work. I've had a few fillings and crowns done; amazing results. Her approach to you as a patient is so relaxing and educative. Her staff also satisfies you with an excellent job on insurance work, explaining the co-pays and procedures cost breakdown. I've been to a few dentists in the Portland area before, but she surely is a pro in her field. I highly recommend

What our patients say:

I've been a patient at Pearl Dental since 2002. I can hardly say enough about this wonderful office, the team that works there and their care and attention of me through the years. Every investment I've made has paid off time and time again. Dr. Mika is wonderful, calm and friendly and attentive. Once again, I have only the highest regard for their professional manner, their care and friendship toward me. - Phyllis Melmon-Martinez



This dental clinic is the best. It's taken me 10 years since I've been in Portland to find a wonderful dentist like Dr. Mika. She's great about providing pro-active ways to take care of your teeth/gums and her approach/demeanor is wonderful. She just runs a great practice and has great staff. They're professional and courteous. They make my experience of going to doctors- stress-free! - Henry M.



Dr. Miyamoto is the best dentist in Portland. She has always been very professional, meticulous and is genuinely concerned for me. Her dentistry is superior in quality to any other dentist who has treated my family, and her gentle chair-side manner has always been stress-free, pain-free. Any treatment required is presented to me and my family in a way that we understand. She encourages us to share in the decision making as an informed and knowledgeable patient. She is simply the ONLY dentist I will go to. Her staff is considerate and extremely professional and helpful. - Janning D.

Whether you need routine exams, cleanings, fillings, Invisalign, restorative work, cosmetic services, or an entire smile makeover, Dr. Mika and the staff at Pearl District Dental believe our patients should be treated with the respect, friendliness, and skill they expect. Below you will find just a few of the many qualities that set Pearl District Dental apart from other dental clinics. > Pearl District Dental takes time to listen. We believe that in order to provide you with the best care possible, it is crucial that we listen. This allows us to involve you in every step of your oral health care, so we can determine together which treatment options best fit your needs and desires. > Prevention is at the core of the Pearl District Dental approach. Most painful and costly dental conditions are avoidable. You’ll likely find our dental exams and professional cleanings to be more thorough than what you are accustomed to. This allows us to alert you to potential concerns and work together to prevent or reverse more significant damage, which saves you time, discomfort, and money in the long-term. > Pearl District Dental never compromises on quality. When prevention or reversal are not options, our team believes in doing things right the first time. We take extra steps to achieve long-lasting, highly functional, and exquisitely beautiful results. Whether providing restorative dental care, cosmetic dentistry, or an entire smile makeover, we use the most advanced, world-class technology and training available. In fact, the Pearl District Dental team completes significantly more continuing education credits than is required annually. Dr. Mika, for example has routinely completed significantly more continuing education credit hours for each of the past several years than what is required.
