I can’t say enough about Dr. Teasdale and staff. This practice has exceeded my expectations in virtually every avenue. Their professionalism is top rate and it is evident that they truly care about their patient’s well-being. I had somewhat of a dental emergency last spring and Dr. Teasdale and his assistant made special arrangements to see me almost immediately, even though the clinic had closed for the day. I have had multiple procedures done iver the years and I continue to be completely satisfied with the results. Advanced Dental Arts NW has fully earned my trust

Dr Teasdale, Oo & Anna were so helpful to me when I had a dental emergency a year ago. It was a long and scary process for me but the team was very communicative about procedures and costs which allowed me to navigate the processes. Dr Teasdale was very generous when COVID thwarted our best efforts and I am very grateful for the top notch customer service Advanced Dental Arts NW provided me, I highly recommend this team, best dentist I’ve ever had!

Dr. Teasdale and his assistants were amazing. They provided a standard of care and bedside manner that is often overlooked in this day and age. The level on expertise and professionalism exhibited in this office is unprecedented. I truly felt that I was being offered genuine advice with concern for my well being rather than typical assembly line style dentistry. Absolutely recommended.

Sue F. from Vancouver, WA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Teasdale since about 1996. He is fantastic, and I am truly curious at reading some of these mixed reviews. In my opinion of going to him for countless years—he is a talented dentist. I have referred many people to him, from my work place, to friends and family. My first experience with Dr. Teasdale was when I wanted to get some crowns or whatever was recommended to fix my smile. I had a chipped front tooth that was terribly capped, when I was 9 years old, and it was terrible looking in the gum area. I also had issues with my teeth beginning to shift, discolor etc. from age. I had Dr. Teasdale do eight of my top front teeth (all the ones that show my smile) crowning them due to these issues, and he did a spectacular job. So fast forward—about a year or two later when he was doing something to my other teeth, out of the blue he looked at one of the eight crowns and pointed out that he was not happy about one of them. I had no idea about it, and wasn’t having problems—but upon close inspection he saw a potential future issue with it. He replaced it and there was no charge even though it was quite awhile since I had had the work done…. To me most dentists would not have even pointed it out by that time. Bottomline, I would highly recommend Dr. Teasdale, period. Take it from someone who has been going to him for years, and everyone I have recommended throughout the years were very happy I directed them that way.

The work performed by Russ Teasdale and his staff is of very high quality. The attention and concern of the staff is first rate. I have been a patient of Dr. Teasdale for several decades. There has been a lot of continuity of his staff. The dental hygienist yesterday (Jil) was new to me. That said, I was very impressed by her professional performance. Thanks Jil for your great work.

C. K. from Vinita, OK (Source: Yelp)


Can’t say enough great things about Dr. Teasdale and his team at ADA NW. They are amazing….totally pain free, beautiful results….I travel from Japan just to get my care with ADA…because frankly, it’s the best in the world!!! And when I have had to go elsewhere because of circumstances? Other dentists always ask me who did my dental work because they are so impressed! Totally worth it because let’s face it…. those teeth you have, you need them to last the rest of your life!

Claire T. from Portland, OR (Source: Yelp)


I just had my teeth cleaning which had been pushed back due to Coronavirus. I felt VERY comfortable and safe. I called when I arrived and waited in my car. They did a verbal health check over the phone and also checked my temperature upon arrival into the office. They seated me promptly and wore masks and appropriate PPE the entire time. I wore my cloth mask until I was in the seat and then took it off. The teeth cleaning went great as usual, I was educated about what they were doing and was given ample opportunities to ask questions. I cannot imagine any further precautions they could take to have made my appointment more safe and comfortable. Thank you to Dr. T and team!

Dr. T and his crew are the best! Dr. T has always worked on my dental care until I moved to California. At the beginning of this year, my bridge finally broke and I had to get it made by another dentist. The bridge felt off and I was having trouble biting down. I decided to fly back to have Dr. T work on a new bridge. I was not disappointed. The service they provided years ago, still holds true. Everyone was really attentive to my needs. Coming back to get my bridge fix was the best chose that I’ve made. Thank you!

I feel so lucky to have found Dr. Teasdale and his staff! I have needed a lot of dental work due to an accident when I was a child. I’ve seen a lot of dentists that didn’t quite have the know how or confidence to help me. I found Dr. Teasdale through the internet 4 years ago and took a chance based on his reviews. His staff has from the beginning made me feel comfortable and at home. Dr. Teasdale has helped navigate me through all of my procedures including my surgeries and lots of calls and questions! I really can’t say enough great things about the team at this clinic. Thank you guys!!

Becky G. from Portland, OR (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Teasdale replaced two of my amalgam fillings with porcelain and my hot/cold sensitivity was gone! My previous dentist had me using a prescription sensitivity toothpaste which did not work. Eating ice cream and drinking HOT coffee are once again totally enjoyable. Better products and technology that costs about the same as other dentists.  I’m happy I found them!

Francfort I. from Portland, OR (Source: Yelp)


I want to say, these guys are excellent at what they do and are incredibly professional. I’ve been going to them for years now and their office and practice is so personalized and comfortable that it hardly even feels like a dentist’s office, feels more like a wellness center honestly. In fact, their practice is so good, that my partner went to them for years in spite of the fact that our dental plan did not include their practice as one of the covered firms. That’s how great these guys are. I am now undergoing treatment for an extremely narrow jaw line and am in the “Invisalign stage.” I trust these guys with my treatment and for good reason too, they’ve always been right about what they say they can do for me (they do not over promise). And finally, they don’t nickel and dime you – I don’t know how they maintain such a professional and well-kept practice without charging more than they do. I highly recommend Advanced Dental Arts NW for your dental needs.

Dr. Teasdale is the best dentist I’ve ever had and I’ve had a lot of dentists and dental work done. Dr. Teasdale knows his stuff, has a steady hand, always has state-of-the-art and new technologies, and can perform restorations, orthodontics, and can correct your bite. The staff are always the nicest, most knowledgable people, and I have to give a special shout out to Ou, who has been with Dr. Teasdale for 25 years. Ou is so good at working with the doctor, but she also really cares about the patients and is really a great advocate with a lovely bed-side manner. I highly recommend Dr. Teasdale and his team for all of your dental needs.

Lisa N. from Portland, OR (Source: Yelp)


Dr.Teasdale and his staff are top notch ! I really do not like going to the dentist but, I fear not when I know that I’m going here. The care and empathy that is provided here can not be found anywhere else . Dr. Teasdale also has always had a great sense of humor that puts you at ease. Makes you seek out jokes to tell him as well . The treatment plans are up front so there are no surprises. I can not recommend NW Dental Arts enough.

Andrew Meininger (Source: Google)


I went to Advanced Dental Arts NW for some tooth pain that required an extraction. Dr Teasdale is hands down the best dentist I have ever seen. I feel complete trust in his work and plan to return for cleanings and orthedontia and am encouraging my wife to do the same. The staff are also fantastic and make me feel at ease. The office is equipped with some amazing technology that I had never heard of. I highly recommend this dentist.

Thomas Burnett (Source: Google)


This place is great, and by far the best dentist office I’ve ever been to. All of the staff make the difference, being very friendly and personable. The office and all of the equipment are exceptionally nice and professional. With every visit I was welcomed and comforted by every member of their crew like I was a friend and not just another customer. You’re not only paying for quality service and product but also the staff’s hospitality. WIN!

The best Dental Care in Advanced Dental Arts office. Dr.Teasdale amazing doctor, for me was so hard to found same clinic after when I was leaving from Portland. Already 15 years I like my crowns and two breaches. Thank you Dr. Teasdale for my beautiful smile. And special thank you to assistant Ou for the best help.

D. K. from Oakland, CA (Source: Yelp)


I recently had a biking accident and broke a front tooth. I had just moved to Portland and hadn’t established a relationship with a dentist in the area. I called and I was seen immediately and the same day I left with a fixed front tooth. I was happy with the results and the fact it was immediately fixed. Doctor and his staff were great.

Bill Drake (Source: Google)


This is an excellent dentist and staff. They are very friendly, professional and competent. I am visiting Portland and had a dental emergency. My Air B&B host is Dr. Teasdale’s patient & recommended that I call. They were able to see me almost immediately, and took very good care of me. My family and I will use Dr. Teasdale as our family dentist once we finish relocating. IMO you cannot go wrong with Dr. Teasdale if you are looking for a first-class dentist with an excellent staff, and great location.

Silvia Santiago Sebastian (Source: Google)


I want to say that the service they provide is really great. I love the fact there was a warm welcome and since I am a new patient at the clinic my experience overall was wonderful. As a 20 year old I am very glad I decided to have my first check up here in a while. I’m also glad it’s not too far from where I live. I highly do recommend going to this place for very great service.

Cm V. from Ashland, OR (Source: Yelp)


It’s a rare opportunity to have your dentist clean your teeth! I give ADA-NW the highest rating because of the superb customer service  and dental work received. It has been months without an exam or cleaning since the COVID crisis and they were able to accommodate me and my limited schedule. They took enormous pains to ensure patient safety from air filters to the personal protective equipment and procedures. I’ve been going to Russ and his team off and on since 1984 and whenever I am in the Portland area… even traveling so far from Japan to seek the team’s services. That’s how good they are. They are amazing and have my highest reommendation!

Michelle Miller (Source: Google)


Greeted with a smile! Thorough cleaning by knowledgeable dentists who answered my questions from studies to look up myself. Brief info afterward as to my situation with important (sinus bridge) procedure no other dentist has brought to my attention before. Oh yeah and the waiting room was like The Smithsonian Museum! Globe stand, kaleidoscope and sea theme art. Close to but not right downtown.

Taylor Fox (Source: Facebook)


All I can say is wow! Where do I even begin! From the moment you walk in to the moment you leave you are treated with the upmost care and respect. The staff make you feel great and like family! I would recommend this place to anyone looking for great dental care!

In March 2020, Dr. Teasdale examined a serious bite issue I developed after having 2 caps installed months before. It was causing me pain and made it hard to chew food, and adjustments by my dentist did not work. Dr. Teasdale measured my bite using state-of-the-art scans, made a series of gentle adjustments and re-scans, and produced instant relief! It has been several weeks, and I can now chew food without pain, and my bite feels great again. Dr. Teasdale explains things clearly, is very gentle and reassuring, and clearly knows exactly what he is doing. Thank you!!!

Dr. Teasdale and Ou are so fun to be around. I had the Disclusion Time Reduction Treatment done for my TMJ Pain. Worth every penny. Feels like so much pressure and tension has been taken off my jaw. I felt a change immediately after my appointment. I was a little nervous going in but they made me feel very comfortable and well taken care of. I am so happy with my new bite and I can chew so much easier as well. I have not had a TMJ Headache since and my face feels so light. This Team is so so nice and very professional. I will definitely be returning if I need any other work done. Super grateful to have found them.

Terry S. from Portland, OR (Source: Yelp)


I’ve gone to Dr. Teasdale for at least 2 decades now.  I went to another dentist for a while since he was in my insurance system.  Big mistake.  I had a tooth bothering me and the new dentist ran me down his hall to an endodonist who wanted ended up charging me $100 and wanted to pull the tooth.  I got a second opinion from Dr. Teadsale and he shaved it down (right away) and it was fine.  Saved the tooth – when if was fine all along!  He’s been great all these years.  Top quality work!   His staff is wonderful and he is up on all the latest equipment and innovations.  He ended up being covered as well as the second guy.  I never should have left.

Every time I visit Advanced Dental Arts NW, I’m quickly and warmly greeted. Their thoughtfully designed greeting room feels spacious and inviting, with the reception area closer to the middle of the office space, not behind a wall and a sliding window. It feels almost like I’m inside someone’s living room. I’m often said hello to by other staff who can easily wave and say hi when walking by. In minutes, I’m able to see and talk to Dr Teasdale, and am in a dentist chair; no long wait. Russ Teasdale is one of the most personal doctors I’ve met. He always knows precisely what’s going on, exactly how to approach it, and explains everything in the kind of perfect you can understand; always providing available options, and never leaving me confused. The entire team at Advanced Dental Arts NW are highly trained, as well as being skilled experts in using both cutting edge technologies, and professional artistry. Dr Teasdale and his team are the dental professionals I recommend to all friends, colleagues, and family every time–and with a big smile.

I really enjoy the Advanced Dental staff and doctor, they do a really nice job making me feel comfortable, taking the anxiety out of going to the dentist. I feel like they actually care about getting to know me as a friend and not just a patient. Customer satisfaction is a high priority for them so I feel confident recommending them to anyone who is looking for a great dentist team.

Stephanie S. from Portland, OR (Source: Yelp)


I am extremely happy with my expericence at Advanced Dental Arts NW.  Dr. Teasdale is truely an artist!!  I previously had braces in high school (now pushing 40), but my teeth shifted and I had a big gap between my two front teeth.  I had been looking at Invisalign and learned that this office was a perferred provider of Invisalign products.  My first impression was good.  The office was extremely relaxing with a puzzle set out, a fountain in the corner, and comfy couches to sit on.  I was impressed by all of the new technology that was used in imaging my teeth.  I was so excited when I was told that I was eligible for Invisalign!  One of the reasons I decided to work with Advanced Dental Arts NW is because all of the staff have beautiful smiles themselves.  Everytime I went in for an appointment, they knew my name and seemed geninuely happy that I was there.  I am a person who asks a lot of questions, and all of them were answered without frustration, from Dr. Teasdale, to the hygenists, to the financial person.  What a great place!  I am so happy with my smile!!  I definately recommend!

The lower invisaligner that I’ve used every night finally wore out after 8+ years. In some distress, i called many offices who could not help. My original had been made by my former dentist, in a different state. The office staff at Advanced dental arts fit me into their schedule the very day I called. There, I found every person in the office that I encountered is kind and well trained. They all get along so well, it was fun to be there. After one week I picked up the new device, and it is perfect. I’m very pleased by the whole transaction, the people, and the invisaligner itself. Thank you for taking such good care of me, ADA!

Dr.Teasdale and all his staff are hands down the most considerate, personable, and skilled group of dental professionals with whom I have had the pleasure of receiving treatment. For as long as I can remember I have had an incredible aversion to the dentist. I was a wild land firefighter, rode motorcycles, and have had a broken femur. I am no stranger to pain or scary situations, but ever since I was a kid, going to the dentist would take me to a whole other level of fear and anxiety. I have been coming to dr Teasdale’s office for the last ten years. Not only am I a tightwad who is willing to pay for this top notch work out of my own pocket, but I am willing to drive over 450 miles one-way to do so. Dr. Teasdale is honest in his recommendation on what treatments are necessary, has always been conservative with restorations, and is happy to explain in detail my particular situation and his reasoning behind different treatments. I would recommend anyone come to this office for any service they offer.

Angela S. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


I meet with Dr. Teasdale and his assistant Ou in 2003. I was so happy with result. I was crying when I was to see my smile in the mirror because my dream is a real! I had before old style teeth fixed on another country. Doctor was with shirt time change all my not beautiful teeth, he was making for me new mouth. Today is 2017 and for all this period I don’t have any issue, just regular 3 times per year I have professional cleaning. Thank you. The best place!

I am been seeing Dr. Teasdale and his team for many years and have found them to always be extremely competent, friendly, professional and willing to see me at a moments notice. They diagnose any problem I may be having and do this quickly and efficiently. I feel fortunate that I am a patient and would certainly recommend his services to anyone.

I’ve gone to Russ Teasdale at Advanced Dental Arts for over 30 years now. I cracked one of my wisdom teeth and he had to remove it yesterday. I would not trust many people with that serious of a procedure but Russ has my full confidence. He was so gentle and careful that I had nearly no pain – during or after. He is amazing! and has a wonderful staff. The BEST!

Frazier Teasdale (Source: Google)


As always everyone on staff is delightful and I always feel comfortable during my treatments. My recent visit was awesome because of the use of a super high focus and detailed camera that they used to take pictures of what is happening in my mouth and explain it to me. I was having a lot of sensitivity on one of my back teeth and they said an old filling had fallen out. I understand the concept of that but to ensure that I had no other questions they took a picture from a few angles and showed me the missing filling and the challenges caused by it. I love learning and being educated about what is going on so this was super exciting to me. The doctor also helped to assess my bite and fix areas where my teeth weren’t articulating in an ideal way. Very complete care from start to finish of my visit. I cannot recommend them highly enough!

Joel B. from Portland, OR (Source: Yelp)


I had not been to a dentist in 15 years so I was full of anxiety and shame when I came to my first appointment with Dr Teasdale. They made me feel welcome and never passed any judgement. I had three cracked teeth and fillings that had fallen out so my mouth was a mess. They were able to see me the day after I made an appointment on their helpful website. The x-rays and exam took a few minutes and I was immediately presented with a treatment plan that focused on my three major concerns. I chose to have the worst tooth fixed first and at no time did they attempt to upsell or push additional services. Dr. Teasdale presented me with a list of movies I could watch (he recommended “Caddyshack”) and gave me nice Bose noise-cancelling headphones to wear while they put a state of the art crown on my tooth that he created using a 3D modeling program and cool crown milling machine. He did all of this while I waited and made sure to let me know I could get up and walk around and sit somewhere more comfortable if I wanted to. My life and smile changed when he and his talented assistant fitted that crown onto my super gross, broken tooth. His process is so precise that I didn’t need any painkillers or antibiotics and had a sandwich for lunch with no pain. Here’s the best part: I was driving to the store with my wife at 5:30 that evening and Dr. Teasdale called me to make sure I was ok and that my tooth was feeling alright. Not an assistant, the Doctor himself called me. I’d never experienced such a thing in any service industry and it’s one of the reasons I am going back next week to get the other two teeth done. This was something that I thought I’d have to save up for and have done over the next few months, but as an added bonus, Anna, the super-helpful Front Office Coordinator arranged for my CareCredit limit to be raised to facilitate my entire treatment plan. Advanced Dental Arts is truly as good as it gets!
