I've been seeing Dr. Williamson for over two years, and he always impresses me with his caring and thorough manner. I'm the kind of person that likes to know exactly what's being done for my care, and Dr. Williamson always takes the time to explain his procedures in terms I can understand.

I'm also impressed by his commitment to the environment and to being mercury-free. When I had to have an old silver-mercury filling removed, not only did he use the standard dental dam, but he and his assistant both wore respirators. He gave me oxygen to breathe so I wouldn't risk inhaling any mercury vapors from the drilling, and he used a special air filter to suction and capture any airborne mercury. He is very serious about avoiding mercury contamination and using proper disposal procedures.

I would highly recommend Dr. Williamson to anyone who cares about their health and the environment. Plus he's conveniently located just off the intersection of I-5 and Highway 217.

I have been a patient of Dr. Williamson since 1980, some 30+ years. He has taken care of all of my dental needs from routine cleaning, 2 crowns, 1 bridge, and complete mercury removal. His staff is friendly, courteous, and prompt. I fully trust Jeff and seek his advice regarding dental health issues. I drive from Gresham to Lake Oswego. He is a good dentist and the drive is worth it. I recommend my friends. He is my dentist.

Jeff Williamson has been my dentist since 1982. I have now moved to a different city, and I still make the 100- mile trip to have him do my dental work.
His work is of the highest quality. He is conscientious and very, very skilled. His techniques and equipment are the most up-to-date; and the office and staff are professional and know their skills. As one of the other reviewers commented, he is a gentleman. While his prices aren't the lowest anywhere, I feel that he charges a fair price for his level of skill and expertise.

Dr. Williamson is an amazing dentist! I have had several dental problems as I have aged. Dr. Williamson has always treated me with respect and done professioal, pain free work on my mouth. He is up to date on all the latest procedures and is great about explaining what the best practices are. His staff is friendly and the billing procedures are clear and fair. I would HIGHLY recommend Jeffrey Williamson!

I was referred to Jeffrey Williamson as a second opinion for a recommendation made by another dentist. The first dentist told me one of my front teeth was dying, and I needed a full root canal and crown. Jeffrey performed a simple test and determined the tooth was live, and xrays showed it was fully healthy. He saved me thousands of dollars and tons of unecessary pain. His HONESTY was refreshing in these times where everyone seems to be trying to make a buck on someone else. His staff and the atmosphere is very relaxing for someone like me who doesn't like going to the dentist any more now that I did when I was a kid...(which is about once every never)...Jeffrey's presence is calming and he really takes the time to listen to his patient's concerns. I would recommend him to anyone and would take my own children to him.

I wish I had done some research on the web before going to this dental office. I feel I have been mistreated in a big way by this guy. There are plenty of warnings out there about this dentist so do your research before you go to him.

What stands out most about this dentist is how unbelievably expensive he is. Do not go to this dentist unless you want to pay unheard of prices for common services.
You could buy a round trip ticket to Europe for a long weekend, pay for a hotel, eat out, and get your teeth cleaned for the price this guy charges for a routine teeth cleaning and checkup. Don't expect them to tell you that in advance though. Everything will seem normal until you get the bill after your insurance company rejects his obscene charges.
It seems unreasonable to expect medically ethical treatment from someone so willing to engage in such abhorrent business ethics, so I would under no circumstances advise others to use this dentist's services.

I have been seeing him for years. I was referred to him by my doctor and he removed all the mercury from my mouth. His staff seems nice. I had a problem with a tooth on a holiday and he came in and gave me a temporary fix without an assistant. Have to wonder if all the bad reviews are not from people who are tiring to shut him up for working toward more holistic care in tooth care. He is very active in the dental community. Got to wonder? Oh well I like him.

In Kathy's Post: "The dental board has an open investigation and could end up shutting his office down in the near future."
I just called and checked with the dental board and they said this was not true. He had one incident in the early 80's about advertising. I can't believe what you can get away with on the internet.
Shame on you Kathy!

I really don't understand the negative reviews on here. My three kids and I have been going to Dr. Williamson for 15+ years. He is kind, sensitive to every issue I have ever had to deal with, and very easy to work with regarding payments. He is always genuinely concerned about pain management. I have recommended many people to him and they are all happy with he and his office also. I was referred to Dr. Williamson after another dentist freaked out about something he saw on my gums and told me I had cancer of the mouth. Turns out I was suffering from food allergies that were causing the reaction the other dentist saw. Dr. Williamson worked with my medical doctor and learned about my health issues. He concerns himself with overall health that can affect teeth, gums, etc and is very knowledgeable regarding these kinds of issues. My kids love him too. He is very gentle and (especially when they were young) they have always recognized how gentle he is. Going to the dentist has never been scary for them.I would never consider going to another dentist. He is wonderful!

After about 12 years of 80-hour+ workweeks, not by choice but because of pressure from overseas contracts or US employers' threats during multiple recessions, I ended up with periodontal disease, my teeth falling out one by one. Before that awful 12 years, I had always taken good care of my teeth, seeing a dentist every 3 to 6 months, flossing at least once daily, brushing several times a day, etc. But economic survival eventually pre-empted my attempts to take care of my teeth. I went to several dentists and periodontists to try to save them, and invariably those professionals treated me like a disgusting criminal.

Then, on my husband's recommendation, I went to Dr Williamson. He took one look at my mouth and said, so very kindly, "You've been under a lot of stress, haven't you?"

With the regimen Dr Williamson gave me and his referrals to other specialists, I was able to save or replace the rest of my teeth -- and my life has been so much better and less stressful ever since.

I am both grateful to and respectful of Dr Williamson's expertise AND his humanity, and would highly recommend him to others needing quality dental care.

I have been going to Dr Williamson office for years he is wonderful--he did a full mouth reconstruction (smile makeover)on me and i have nothing but good things to say about him-- he is very gentle and i love that he is "mercury free" he practices it not only says it--his hygienists very nice and do a great job--and his front office staff they are on the ball and really know what is going on no matter what questions are thrown at them--lastly his assistants are equally nice and knowledgeable. Within the last year my entire family has been in to see him and they have had the same experiences as I have. I just want you all to know if you are searching for a knowledgeable--state of the art--latest and greatest dentist Dr Williamson is just the dentist for you.

Due to past experiences, I feel anxious whenever I go to the dentist. Dr. Williamson changed this fear completely, and he has made me feel at ease. He expresses genuine care for you and your teeth. I do not live in Oregon year round, but I make it a point every year to see him when I am here. I highly recommend Dr. Williamson to anyone looking for a mercury free & holistic dental experience.??

Ive been a patient for over 20 yrs. and I have never had a bad experience. I appreciate the exceptional service of the staff and dentist. He is concerned about you overall health and wellness- not just your teeth. He even left his christmas eve dinner to see me when I broke a tooth. I highly recommend him if your looking for the best dentist around.

I've been seeing Dr. Williamson for over a year, and he always impresses me with his caring and thorough manner. I'm the kind of person that likes to know exactly what's being done for my care, and Dr. Williamson always takes the time to explain his procedures in terms I can understand.

I'm also impressed by his commitment to the environment and to being mercury-free. When I had to have an old silver-mercury filling removed, not only did he use the standard dental dam, but he and his assistant both wore respirators. He gave me oxygen to breathe so I wouldn't risk inhaling any mercury vapors from the drilling, and he used a special air filter to suction and capture any airborne mercury. He is very serious about avoiding any possible mercury contamination.

I would highly recommend Dr. Williamson to anyone who cares about their health and the environment. Plus he's conveniently located just off the intersection of I-5 and Highway 217.

During some casual surfing on City Search I came across my dentist??s page. Though I am not one who is compelled to blog or write my opinion for unknown others to read I was surprised at some of the reviews written for Dr. Williamson and felt a need to have my say.
I am in my fifties and have been a client of Dr. Williamson for over 14 years. My dental issues have ranged from ordinary to sever requiring reconstruction of many of my teeth. Throughout my many years of life I have lived in different communities and had many dentists, I have never had a dentist as kind, present, sensitive to my needs and technically skilled as Dr. Williamson. I have never left his office feeling anything other than blessed to have him as one of my health care providers and have shared this opinion with many others who have become more of his loyal patrons. If you need a skilled dentist and prefer working with quality, caring professionals then see Dr. Williamson, you will be very happy you did.

I have been going to Dr. Williamson for the past 6 years. He has always been very professional. His staff are extremely nice and the offices are beautiful. I was referred to him by a friend after having a bad experience with another dentist. I am terrified of dental work but there has never been a problem with Dr. Williamson. He put a crown in and it was pain free. He always checked and made sure I was comfortable with any dental work. He also saved me a lot of money by letting me know years ago that the expensive procedure recommended by the other dentist was not necessary (he was right!). I would highly recommend his services (and have).

I have been a patient of Dr. Williamson's for about 2 years. I was referred to him by another very satisfied patient. The women who work there are so sweet and they always make me feel welcome and well cared for. Dr Williamson is always cheerful and he always makes me feel very comfortable. I have never had an issue with my insurance not covering the services. I am very pleased with this Dentist. :)

I was referred to Jeffrey Williamson as a second opinion for a recommendation made by another dentist. The first dentist told me one of my front teeth was dying, and I needed a full root canal and crown. Jeffrey performed a simple test and determined the tooth was live, and xrays showed it was fully healthy. He saved me thousands of dollars and tons of unecessary pain. His HONESTY was refreshing in these times where everyone seems to be trying to make a buck on someone else. His staff and the atmosphere is very relaxing for someone like me who doesn't like going to the dentist any more now that I did when I was a kid...(which is about once every never)...Jeffrey's presence is calming and he really takes the time to listen to his patient's concerns. I would recommend him to anyone and would take my own children to him.

Pros: State of the art equipment for mercury free fillings

I had a horrible experience with Dr. Jeffrey Williamson DDS (Centerpointe Dental) a couple weeks ago. I came in for cleaning, check up, and repair of my two crowns that had fallen out. He gave me a long lecture about having to floss deep inside my mouth (I do), but ended up not even giving me the cleaning I was scheduled for. Did he just try to make me feel guilty, and feel that I needed to see him more often, when in fact there was nothing there to clean? The crown that he fixed ended up sticking out like I had a buck tooth, and felt very strange in my mouth. I could feel it even under the anesthesia's effect. But when I pointed it out to him, he went all confrontational and blamed it first on my lower tooth, and next on my previous dentist. All I know is that I did not have a buck tooth when I came in his office. Now I have one, since he refused to fix his shoddy work. I also had a cavity on the side of the tooth next to that crown that was only visible when the crown was removed. He didn't discover that. I did, when looking in the mirror he handed me. And when I asked him to stop putting the crown back on and to fix that cavity first, he was like "oh yeah, I forgot," then proceeded to drill that tooth without giving me any anesthesia first. Only after I jumped and screamed that it hurt did he give me one, saying "I didn't think it would hurt." Hello? The filling he put on that cavity was of a color couple shades darker than my tooth. And he didn't polish it at all so that now it looks like I have a yellowish corn stuck between my front teeth. When I pointed it out to him after he said "done!"--he was like "oh, that??s the whitest color I've got right now; I need to order the #1 (whatever that is). Come back next time, I'll change it." "what about the filling not being smooth and flush with the surface of the tooth?" he answered: "oh, I forgot to polish it before I put the crown back-hehe-don't worry, it's not permanent. I'll fix it next time? Hello? If that was your plan, why didn't you inform me before I pointed it out to you? Why you dismissed me, acting like everything was fixed and good? And why wait till next time to remove this ugly "corn" on my FRONT teeth? The purpose of going to the dentist is to have a better, brighter smile. But thanks to you, now I dare not smile at all. Thanks, Dr. Jeffrey Williamson. Now if I need to scare anyone away, all I have to do is show them my buck tooth and the yellowish corn next to it.

And he didn't polish it at all so that now it looks like I have a yellowish corn stuck between my front teeth. When I pointed it out to him after he said "done!"--he was like "oh, that??s the whitest color I've got right now; I need to order the #1 (whatever that is). Come back next time, I'll change it." "what about the filling not being smooth and flush with the surface of the tooth?" he answered: "oh, I forgot to polish it before I put the crown back-hehe-don't worry, it's not permanent. I'll fix it next time? Hello? If that was your plan, why didn't you inform me before I pointed it out to you? Why you dismissed me, acting like everything was fixed and good? And why wait till next time to remove this ugly "corn" on my FRONT teeth? The purpose of going to the dentist is to have a better, brighter smile. But thanks to you, now I dare not smile at all. Thanks, Dr. Jeffrey Williamson. Now if I need to scare anyone away, all I have to do is show them my buck tooth and the yellowish corn next to it.

Pros: NONE

Cons: EVERYTHING ABOUT HIM

Let me first say that Dr. Jeffrey Williamson, DDS and his entire staff is extremely rude.

I had major tooth pain and made the mistake of going to his office. I told the dentist where the pain was. He looked at the x-rays and said I had a cavity. He drilled and put a filling in. Well it turns out he drilled to deep and ended up killing my tooth AND my nerve. I had to get this tooth extracted by an oral surgeon two weeks later. This cost me over $3,000.00. All this was because of Dr. Jeffrey Williamson; DDS was rushed and did not follow proper procedure during the drilling process. Personally I think he should loose his license for good. My attorney will be reporting to the state of Oregon to take further action against Dr. Jeffrey Williamson, DDS.

I had been going to my normal dentist for five years before I tried Dr. Jeffrey Williamson, DDS in the Portland area. His office was closer to my new home so I tried to switch. At my previous dentist they always gave me a cleaning and billed my insurance. It was 100% covered and they never tried to "up sell" me.

At Dr. Williamson's office they told me I needed a special $500 deep cleaning and my insurance wouldn't cover it all. I said no thanks, just a normal cleaning that's covered 100%. Then, before I knew it he was injecting me with Novocain! I didn't know it was a needle in my mouth until I felt the shot!

I said what are you doing!? He said I needed to be numb for the "deep cleaning." I told him again I only wanted a normal cleaning. They said it was not medically ethical to only give me a normal cleaning. They made me sign a doc saying I was refusing medical treatment. How come my other dentist of five years never said I needed this extra special cleaning that costs more?

Since then I have done further research on Dr. Jeffrey Williamson, DDS of Centerpointe Dental. I have found over a dozen complaints on him and that?s just in the last twelve months alone.

I take writing a review seriously and want to warn any potential client of this dentist to find another dental health care professional to do any required procedure. Dr. Jeffrey Williamson is unprofessional and his business practices have serious ethical concern. His care is rushed, scattered, and as another patient I know described him, "It felt like he was working on a car, not a human or in someone's mouth...like he was changing a spark plug". This is an accurate statement. His rough and shoddy style reminded me of a mechanic attempting to get a hubcap off a tire in haste, not a dental professional implementing a crown. If you are pain sensitive, I would also suggest finding another dentist. He was more concerned about making his 12 o'clock lunch plans than checking to see if the numbing agent was in force. When I verbally informed him that I could feel everything and it hurt, again, his attention was to look at the clock to see the time and then hastily re-administer the agent as he sighed and quickly attempted to continue his work without asking me if I was completely numb. In his haste, as he disengaged the dental probe, it ripped my lip open to where I was bleeding. Buyer beware.

You also need to be fully warned about his billing and post crown exams. I would suggest getting everything in writing. Everything. And if the good dentist and staff will not do this in complete...run like the wind.

I have another tooth that will require a crown and I would gladly pay double Dr. Williamson?s cost for my next addition with another dentist.

Oh, and the one star is there just because I have to enter something in the field to post this.
