Although Dr. Matin wasn't feeling well, I was given an appointment the same day I called, received efficient/expedient care, and with the usual grace and professionalism of this office! Thank you Dr. Matin and Staff!

I was a little worried before my first visit after having had braces installed. I need not have worried. Not one bracket was loosened and my teeth (and the attached hardware) positively gleam!

Even though I was in a lot of discomfort, I still very much enjoyed my visit to Dr. Matin's dental office. Her decorating style is set apart from the traditional dental office motif. I thoroughly enjoyed the very interesting and homey waiting room. When I met Dr. Matin I was totally impressed. Her style put me at ease immediately and felt confident in her competence. Her staff is exceptional as well.

A lot of meticulous planning went into establishing your practice. It's friendly and accommodating to anybody who comes through the door. Laura and Rose are lovely ladies to be around, and I look forward to talking with them. The dental profession is competitive in the Portland area, and you're way ahead of your competitors. And the two little dogs are a hoot!!

Didn't have to wait long before being assisted; was settled right away, didn't need for anything. I loved the heated neck roll, the vibrating chair, and the headphones for the TV. They were nice and friendly....it was overall a nice and low stress experience.

"Overall, thorough and comfortable experience. There was a slight back-up due to unforeseen events, but the communication was effective in letting me know about how long the wait would be. Thorough cleaning and good dialogue about my teeth health with Dr. Matin.
Love the warm neck wrap, chair massager, and of course, the delicious cookies at the end. Not bad for a dentist appt."

I've been a dental patient of Dr. Matin for many years. My teeth & jaw scenario are a challenge for me, and for any dentist. Dr. Matin has ALWAYS been both competent & honest, while enabling me to feel comfortable under her care. I give my utmost recommendation for Dr. Matin and entire staff!

From the moment you walk in the door you are cheerfully welcomed and you are treated as an "individual" where your time is just as valuable as theirs. I have always avoided the dentist, but Dr. Matin and her associates totally changed my outlook. Now I no longer dread the appointment. I am still working on "looking forward to the appointment", but somehow I think I will get there! It is indeed a great experience and I am grateful that I heard her ad on the radio. Now, other family members call Dr. Matin's office their home as well!

Yesterday at lunch I had part of a tooth break off, I called in and was given an emergency appointment at 2:30. If I had had to wait, it is likely I would have lost my tooth. Thank you Dr Matin those implants are expensive. You are the best!

Dr. Matin keeps my teeth in great shape. She caught and diagnosed a problem with my bite and referred me to an orthodontist for treatment when I needed it. I trust that my oral health is in good hands whenever I see Dr. Matin. I highly recommend her and her staff.

"While visiting Portland recently I found myself requiring an emergency filling for a broken tooth cusp. Being so far from home, the search was on to find a dentist. Turning to the phone book and the intranet I found myself looking for some dentist reviews in the area and this is how I discovered Dr. Matin .
Like many others I am very apprehensive when it comes to visiting a dental office but the reviews mentioned that Dr. Matin was patient and "" gentle"" ....a key word for me.
Having left an e mail and phone message at her office I was called and my appointment was made immediately.
From the moment I arrived at her office Dr. Matin and her staff made me feel
welcome , comfortable and listened to my concerns. After her initial assessment my tooth was repaired without discomfort or any pain and I was on my way.
I would like to thank Dr. Matin and her staff for their kindness and yes, she
gives the most painless injection I have ever had.
Who knew you could get all this and a cookie for your drive home as well.
Thanks again Dr. Matin ."

Visiting Dr. Matin's office is like stepping into a bit of a day spa. The vibrating chairs, the warm neck wraps..it is all so relaxing. Defiantely not something I would associate with going to the dentist. I actually drive all the way from Vancouver Washington for my visits. She is that good!

I highly recommend Dr. Laura Matin for anyone who needs dental services. I have never experienced the customer service or quality of care that I experienced with her and the staff employed with her. As for injections, she is the best!!! I never felt a thing. I have spent alot of time in a dental chair and my apprehension of gettting the "shot" has always plagued me. She calmly and gently placed the injections in my mouth and I didn't feel a thing. I really appreciate the work she did and recommend her services to anyone who needs them. EXCELLENT!!!

I came to DR Matin due to the stellar reviews on this site, however, I WISH I HAD NEVER HEARD OF THIS DENTAL OFFICE!!

In summer 2008 had my very front tooth break out. The tooth had to be fully extracted. It was suggested by DR Matin that due to the location of the tooth (highly visible) that I consider a dental implant.

After the long process of the implant (performed by DR Blizzard), DR Matin worked with her "Lab" to create my new implant veneer...AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL...First, the tooth came out 2 shades darker than my normal teeth. Second, when I finally got my new veneer it FELL OFF on the way home. Third, after LESS THAN 10 HOURS the veneer got a DRASTIC CHIP. I had to wait again for ANOTHER veneer. Fourth, during a very uncomfortable procedure where they removed the existing chipped veneer they nicked the side of my other front tooth (and tried to say they didn't do it). Fifth, LESS THAN A WEEK LATER (while flossing) the veneer fell off AGAIN! I DID NOT go back to have them do another bad job. So I had the existing veneer reattached by a local dentist. No more than 6 months later...guess what...the VENEER from DR Matin HAS CHIPPED AGAIN!

PLEASE NOTE: I am a totally normal person who (after spending thousands upon thousands of dollars on my teeth) DOES NOT use my teeth for un-teeth like things. I don't open beer bottles with them or bite open package. I don't even bite into apples or bagels...I cut them up into little pieces so I don't have to "stress out" my teeth. I take very good care of my teeth, I brush 2x a day and even floss every evening.

and nothing more. Dr Matin and her staff are friendly, but that's all there's to it - which is why after several years I've given up and changed my dentist. As I said, it's a very friendly environment and most of the time you don't wait more than about 5 min. Oh yeah and you get a free cookie and a bottle of water if you want to while you wait. But she does have little kids so if you make an early morning appointment, you're gambling that her morning is going smoothly on schedule. Dr. Matin's filling and crown skills are just passable and whatever she does, you can bet you'll pay more than average - her office staff actually admitted to this fact that their fees are on the higher side. More than anything, you'll feel like you're there to see your HMO primary care physician - i.e. Dr Matin rushes in and spends as little time as humanly possible (esp. after cleaning, her exam lasts about 2 min) and rushes out, then later you find out for that 2 mins, your insurance was billed a ridiculous amount of money.

Dr. Laura Matin's dentistry offers services I've only read about. For nervous patients, each chair has headphones and a TV (some on the ceiling) for you to watch while your dental work is done. All the hygienists are very friendly and make you feel relaxed, and they don't offer cosmetic services unless you specifically ask about them. New patients get a free gift too!
