Dr. Dunne and his staff have always done an excellent job, not only with the diagnosis and treatment of my daughter’s teeth, but also the customer service. They are always friendly and treat me with the utmost respect. I will continue to take my child to Dr. Dunne and I have been recommending him to all my friends and family. You will not find a better pediatric dentist in the area!

Dr. Dunne is amazing with my child, he is gentle and patient and definitely knows how to interact with children. His staff/assistants/hygienists are very professional and kind (very thorough with explanations). I highly recommend this office to anyone looking for a dentist for there kids. From scheduling to treatment they definitely put my mind at ease and my child never complains about having to go see the dentist ( big plus).

This office was recommended to me by my manager at work, and they didn’t disappoint! Everyone in the office made my 3 year old daughter feel comfortable and happy to be there! They let her hold each piece of equipment so she wasn’t scared, and she loved the “chair rides”! It was a little bit of an emergency and got us in early the next day for her exam so I didn’t have to worry so much. So thankful to have found a great dentist for my little girl!

My son loves it here and so do we! Everyone is so great and friendly! We’ve been coming here since my son’s first dentist appointment when he was around 1-2, he is now 6. Dr. Dunne habla Español también! Nos encanta aquí! I recommend Dr. Dennis Dunne and his wonderful team! Se los recomiendo.

A friendly, relaxed place for kids to see the dentist! Very patient and understanding, very thorough in the exam, and a personal approach to each child. My son has special needs and the staff are careful to explain each step of the process to ease his anxiety. Dr.Dunne is amazing! Calm and gentle, and so knowledgeable about children’s dentistry. We highly recommend this dentist!!

What a great office! I have been taking my kids to Dr. Dunne for 12 years. While my kids never have been scared to go to the dentist, they absolutely love their visits with Dr. Dunne and his office! He makes my kids feel comfortable and special every time he see them for their appointments and the care is exceptional. The staff is amazing, too! As an orthodontist in Eugene, I also have been able to work with Dr. Dunne closely and professionally through the years. His patient care is exceptional across the board and he treats every child with a fun-loving compassion that shows he genuinely is great at and loves what he does.

We loved Dr. Dunne and his staff when we lived in Eugene. You can tell that he really loves working with kids. He knows how to make them feel comfortable and has designed his entire office to be kid-friendly and fun. When one of our children broke a tooth, Dr. Dunne took excellent care of him. All of our routine visits were terrific too. Plus, he and his staff get together with an adjacent orthodontist to throw one heck of a fun patient appreciation party each year!

My children are 25, 21 and 15. All 3 having seen Dr Dunne since birth. And now my grandson. Dr Dunne treats both the child and parents with the utmost respect and kindness. He and his staff go above and beyond. They have a fun environment for a dental office that draws kids in to help with the fear of the dentist that some kids have.i would recommend Dr Dunne and his staff to EVERYONE!

I love Dr. Dunne and his team! Everyone in the office is so kind, patient, and fun! I loved not only the the dentistry team, however, the office team as well! They were patient, thorough and went the extra mile for us! The team really did make this a pleasant experience for both of my children (4 and 5 years old). Both kiddos were very nervous, everyone took their time, explained everything to them, and made it a truly fun and peaceful experience. Thank you!

Dr Dunne and his team are so kind and helpful! We have felt welcome and comfortable since our first visit. When my son knocked out his front tooth on Sunday they were very quick to respond and meet us to try and repair it. They were calm, reassuring, and very patient while working to find a solution. We’re so glad to have such a great dentist!

First of all, the office is beautiful – awesome art everywhere, gorgeous view of the river, very kid friendly even with a fun little door for little ones to come in and out. But the staff. The staff members are exceptional and i mean every single one of them. The front desk workers, the hygienists, Dr. Dunne himself – they are all happy, cheerful, kind, charismatic people and VERY fun and easy to love and trust. These people make a potentially stressful experience absolutely awesome. My boys, 5 and 12, actually get excited to go to the dentist and everyone thinks we’re crazy but they love it there – the sunglasses they get to wear, the variety of flavors of the fluoride and toothpaste, the cool prizes, the fascinating art and beautiful views of the river, and especially the gentle touch and fun interactions from the talented staff! I am so happy to have found such a great team of people to take care of my children’s mouths!

The staff really cares for the kids. They know them well and have learned what works for them visit to visit. It feels great to bring your kids to the dentist and have great experience after great experience! We are very grateful we have a safe welcoming place to bring them to learn how to take care of their teeth as they grow and develop.

Dr. Dunne and the staff are so good. I really could not ask for anything more as far as a dentist office goes for my child. My son is a sensitive kid, and they are so good at making him comfortable, listening to him, and treating him with respect. I feel very welcome there, and I know that he’s getting exceptionally great dentistry and very good attention from the hygienists. Also, they never try to upsell products or treatments, or give him more than he needs. Thank you, Dr. Dunne and staff!

I have been taking my daughter to Dr. Dunne since she got her first tooth. Not only is he talented and skilled at his work, he makes you feel welcome and comfortable as well. He treats the kids AND the parents with warmness and respect. His office is fun, colorful and cheery. He has made my daughter’s experience so positive that she always wants to know when we are coming back after every appointment!

Hands down the best pediatric dentist office we’ve been to. My daughter has crippling anxiety and handled her with the utmost respect and care. Never pushed her to get her mouth x rays but rather took a head x Ray so she didn’t freak out. As a mother, that really put me at ease since finding a dental office that will take a patient such as her is rather difficult to find. I highly recommend this office. The whole office staff is super sweet and love to share a laugh with you.

My children have been going to Dr. Dunne and staff for over a decade, and we have always had a positive experience there. The office itself is warm and welcoming, and incredibly kid-friendly (a pinball machine in the waiting room and Dr. Seuss art!) and the doctor and staff are equally engaging. They are knowledgeable and thorough, and have handled everything for us from routine cleaning and x-rays to dental injuries and issues. Dr. Dunne is able to offer clear solutions and accurately estimate pricing for extra procedures, but does not push, up-sell or rush anyone into decisions about non-essential care. They are top notch medical providers and truly outstanding people!

Loved Dr. Dunne! Very professional and friendly staff. The office is clean and has a fun waiting area for kids to keep themselves entertained. Every person that came into contact with our child was patient and helpful. Our child has some special needs and we were worried about how the appointment would go, but Dr. Dunne made it easy and fun for her. We are excited to continue treatment with him!

Dr. Dunne is a phenomenal dentist! He’s been my son’s dentist for years & he always does an exceptional job. He’s very knowledgeable, always answers all my questions, clearly explains things & most of all, he always is very considerate of my son’s anxiousness & quickly puts it at ease. I HIGHLY recommend him for your children’s dental needs.

I’ve been taking my kids to see Dr Dunne for 10 years. Him and the amazing ladies that work with him are exceptional in the care they have given my 5 boys from emergency calls for my youngest and him losing his front teeth to educating my teenagers on preventive care. They’ve seen them at every age 1 all the way up to when my oldest was 18. The kid’s always look forward to going to the dentist. In my opinion there is no one better!

My friend has been taking her kids to Dr. Dunne for years and loves him. We just moved to the area and needed a dentist for my 5 year old son – who is afraid of the dentist. When we got there, he wouldn’t even get in the chair. But by the end of the visit, he was asking when he gets to go again! I am so impressed and amazed that Dr. Dunne was able to help my son get over his fear of the dentist. Not only was Dr. Dunne so wonderful, his staff was really great too!

Cindy D. from Eugene, OR (Source: Yelp)


Absolutely amazing!!! Dr. Dunne and his staff are, by far, the best. They are completely professional and at the same time, make you feel so comfortable and welcome. We’ve had so many problems with my daughter’s teeth and Dr. Dunne has gone above and beyond to fix the problems. He explains what’s going on in a way that is easy to understand – and that’s been a real problem with other dentists in the past. I also appreciate how he gives me options for the treatment and doesn’t just do what he thinks is best. He always makes sure I am on the same page first. I’ve referred several people to him and will continue doing so.

My son had a lot of anxiety from a bad experience at another dentist for his first visit, so I went into this hoping for the best. Not only was i pleasantly surprised but my son was SO happy when he was finished with his appointment. Colleen was an angel, and dr dunne was so positive and treated us both amazingly. Much appreciated!

Every time I bring my kids in to Dr. Dunne, Jamie, and Colleen, I am totally amazed at the level of service we receive. I would never had dreamed that my kids would have a hard time sleeping the night before going to the dentist out of excitement! It’s seriously Christmas Eve level excitement for my little ones. Every person we interact there is not only very kind and attentive, but also excellent at gently helping kids to be good listeners with calm bodies during their exams. I am also so amazed at the level of expertise from every person there. They never tire of my many, many questions, and they know all the answers perfectly. My only regret is that I am too old to be a patient here!! Best dental experience ever!

My son has been going to Dr. Dunne’s office for the last 12 years or so. Every single visit we have ever had with them has been wonderful. Dr. Dunne and his staff go above and beyond to make the kids feel comfortable and even enjoy the experience. They are all professional, very competent, efficient and do exceptional work. I wish he could be my dentist! Lol

I can’t say enough how much I recommend. I have been going to Dr.Dunne for 4 years with 3 young kids. Today my kids left and before we drove out of the parking lot asked if we could come again tomorrow. They are kind, patient, and so easy to work with. They go above and beyond to make the kiddos comfortable and excited even! A gem of a dentist! Thank you all at A child’s best smile!

My kids (now 9 and 14 years old) always love going to the dentist and it is because Dr. Dunne and his staff are awesome! The best! They are so friendly and talk to my kids with respect and patience. I trust him to recommend appropriate care and he is always willing to explain what is needed and not needed. He also seems to genuinely enjoy his work and his staff seem happy so the whole experience is enjoyable all around.

Very friendly staff, amazing hygienists and Dr. Dunne is exceptional with my kids. He is quick and very knowledgeable. He has a great sense of humor with the kids. My son has major anxiety when going to the dentist, Dr. Dunne finds a way to distract him and get the job done quickly. The hygienist take their time with him too. I would recommend this office to anyone with kiddos.

My son was recently in to see Dr. Dunne and needed 4 baby teeth extracted. Dr. Dunne and staff were so excellent! He is only 6 years old and was so comfortable and relaxed the whole appointment. That evening Dr. Dunne even called to make sure he was feeling well and doing okay. My son never had any pain and healed perfectly! Thank you for making this such a wonderful experience!

This is in response to Adelina’s appointment today, but in regards to all of our family who has been going to Dr.Dunne for years, we have never had a bad experience and have always been treated so well! We love everyone in the office, and have recommended this dental office to many people. Thank you for always taking such great care of us and making us feel like family♥️

Every time we go to the dentist I am impressed with how kid friendly and professional they are. When I tell my 5 year old that he is going to Dr. Dunne’s he gets all excited. Considering some of the dental work he has had done this is saying something. Every staff member that we have worked with has done a great job and is kid centered. I have nothing but great things to say about all the people at this office!

My son has very high dental anxiety, we were referred to Dr.Dunne when my son was 5. Dr. Dunne and his staff are amazing, they have made my son feel comfortable, they talk with him, they tell him what they are doing. I like the fact that they say “You are the boss, if you want us to stop, or you have a question, we stop”. My son is 11 now, and he loves to go see the dentist.

We have been seeing Dr. Dunne since 2007. He performed some pediatric dentistry on my child and we have seen him ever since. We love his staff, the atmosphere, and the relationship we have built together as one of his long-term patients. I cannot recommend him and his staff enough, especially for our children with sensory issues of special needs. We have been very pleased with his office.

My daughter has grown up at Dr. Dunne’s office. She has always been very anxious for dental appointments. Thanks to Dr. Dunne and his patience, caring nature, expertise and willing to work with her during anxious times she finally overcame her biggest fear over the span of 2 recent appointments!! Tears of happiness and big smiles!! Her confidence is back! Thanks Dr. Dunne!!!

My 3 year old fell and broke his front tooth so we have spent a lot of time in the office monitoring it. Dr. Dunne and his staff are so amazing! Nothing but kind, compassionate and kid friendly care. I’ve never left feeling rushed or that all my and my son’s questions weren’t answered. Also, not many doctors personally call to check on their patients but Dr. Dunne took the time to do so. I will continue singing their praises to anyone who asks.

We had a great experience here with my 5yo with ASD and sensory issues. They seem to really “get” kids. We were having a hectic morning with my baby… untimely diaper changes, construction, husband with jury duty, got lost…. So, we were late and I was stressed and juggling a baby as well as my 5yo, but they were very kind and put us right at ease. My kiddo had had a previous negative experience with a different dentist and was nervous but there was no problem here. They were very friendly and patient with him and explained everything and got his consent before doing it. Lots of choices were offered which goes a long way. The office decor was fun for kids, pretty views overlooking the river, kids get a special coin for a toy machine at the end… and more. I was really blown away by how well it all went and my son is excited to go back in 6 months. Happy kid happy mama.
