Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Sophia S. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


This place is amazing! Not like any dentist you have ever been too. The front desk staff was nice and personable. My dental hygienist was Jessica…she is amazing. Great sense of humor and she explained everything she did step by step. I hadn’t been to a dentist in a LONG time and they didn’t make me feel bad or belittle me at all. She took my xrays and afterwards she handed me headphones. I thought they were for music. NOPE! It’s for the movie on the embedded TV in the frickin ceiling! Most dental offices have some cheesy ass motivational poster on the ceiling…not this place. So when she was cleaning my teeth, I got to laugh my ass off to ‘Bridesmaids. Oh…and did I mention every patient of Bling gets free whitening trays? Plus a free whitening session during your appointment? Yeah…ya do! Dr. Katie is so cute and friendly. Very efficient and kind. I cannot rave enough about this place. If you need a dentist and want super service, great care, with a little sass mixed in, Blunt is the place for you.

Bling Dental is amazing! Dr. Katie Ball and her staff are so friendly and courteous. Not to mention the facility is top notch, I mean.. who doesn’t appreciate noise cancelling headphones and watching your favorite show while your getting your teeth cleaned? It took a lot of the anxiety out of going to the dentist. I recommend this place to everyone.

I just finished up my first visit at Bling Dental in Portland. All I can say is great things!! Very welcoming, clean and Dr. Katie is very professional as well as knowledgeable. If you don’t have a dentist or you’re looking for one, check Dr. Katie out. I highly suggest her and her team … And no she didn’t ask me to post this, I just met her and genuinely loved my overall experience.

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


I love Bling. I can’t sing their praises enough. I have referred almost everyone I know to them. I’ve had a lot of really bad dental experiences in my life and the idea of really loving your dental office and not being so full of dread to go there is a pretty new concept and it’s amazing! I am actually pretty happy to have to go to the dentist now and I am not putting it off like I used to! Amazing! I had a fear that they would be a little stuck up or judgmental since they are in the Pearl and specialize in cosmetic dentistry, but that is not at all the case! The staff is super friendly and they really take the time to remember you and ask thoughtful questions. They always thank me for the referrals I send and are generally pretty fabulous at customer service overall. I appreciate that they are always opened to answering my questions and really take the time to explain procedures and give me the “why” behind it all rather than shameful scolding for not flossing. It creates an environment of trust between staff and patient. It seems like they all love what they do and they create a really positive environment that doesn’t feel like a dentist office. Besides the fabulous staff, the fun perks of massaging chairs, being able to watch a movie in the ceiling to distract you, and the free teeth whitening kit for new patients were definite pluses Seriously, go there. Not a single person I have sent.

I recently moved to Portland and was in need of a new dentist and was recommended Bling Dental by a friend. I have a hard time finding a dentist that I feel comfortable with and enjoy right away, but I now have my new dentist. The entire office was incredibly friendly and both the dental technician and the dentist were very knowledgable and made me feel very comfortable and welcome. They both ensured that I understood everything about my visit and welcomed any questions/concerns I had. I highly recommend Bling to anyone looking for a new dentist.

Jay L. from Beaverton, OR (Source: Yelp)


I love Bling Dental! The staff is so friendly and professional. I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Raymond and Dr. Katie – both deliver beyond 5 Star Service. I have been a patient for over two years and refer all my friends and family. I know people that drive hours to come see Dr. Raymond. I feel pampered at the dental office – very different than any other dental office I have gone to in the past. They look expensive but they are the same or better than the ones I went to before I found Bling. I have noticed that some of the reviews are about the Diamond Tooth Brush – that is for a different company that Dr Raymond started. I love the Diamond Tooth Brush and the Icing Teeth Whitening System. I hear they are continuing to create additional products that I am excited to try. I know they had an overwhelming demand for the Diamond when they offered it through Daily Deal sites that caused a back order. The people I talked with were very empathetic and were doing all they can. I got my toothbrush and my friend, who just ordered, got his within 7 days! So the back order is over.

Elizabeth M. from Portland, OR (Source: Yelp)


I have been working with Bling Dental ever since they opened. If you are looking for a new dentist, you must make an appointment with Dr. Katie Ball. Not only is she gentle and compassionate, you’ll find her cosmetic dentistry to be truly beautiful! Both Kaylin and Eric at the front desk are outstanding and extremely helpful. The best customer service I have ever received at any dental office I have ever been too or worked with. I have referred my friends and my family members to Dr. Ball, all with rave reviews… you can’t get a better recommendation then that!

Bling is the best dental experience- not only are they conveniently right near my office, but they have thought through the entire user experience, from the waiting room to the checkout process. I love the continuity I have with my hygienist for 3 years and the warmth and friendliness of the whole staff. I love being able to watch a recently released movie rather than make awkward conversation when someone’s hands are in my mouth. Cleanings and fillings are a breeze- I’ve never been there longer than an hour. I’ve recommended all of my colleagues to this location!

Ali M. from Portland, OR (Source: Yelp)


Hands down the best dental experience I’ve ever had. I thought my last dentist was good, but this place goes above and beyond. The staff are all super nice and accommodating, and really make you feel like you’re their most important patient. The whole office looks very clean and professional, and there are TVs on the ceilings and a great selection of movies to watch while they work on your teeth! Dr Katie is incredibly competent as well. She easily helped me with problems I’ve been complaining about for years! If you’re normally scared or nervous to go to the dentist, you should definitely go to Bling Dental! Can’t recommend them highly enough!

Elle B. from Lake Oswego, OR (Source: Yelp)


Bling Dental really is AS GOOD AS IT GETS! The entire staff is attentive, kind, professional, respectful (of phobia’s /tolerance to dentist), knowledgeable… and FUN! When it’s time to get down to business though, they are FIRST RATE. I would highly recommend going to Bling Dental for all of your Dental needs. Dr. Katie and her staff will have you drop all of your Dental Phobias at the door. The only thing you really need to do is show up, let them work their magic, and leave with a gorgeous smile and a few less hang ups about going to the dentist. If you have ever had a traumatic, difficult, and/or painful dental experience, then Bling Dental is the perfect place to reacquaint yourself to getting the beautiful smile you have always wanted. Not to mention keeping your mouth healthy and free from pain. You won’t regret taking my advice!

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


This dental office has it going on! Everyone is so professional and the clinic is so fun you almost forget that you are not at a day spa but are there to see your dentist. They have flat screen TV’s to watch your favorite movie on and the dental chairs even has a massage adjustment. Dr. Katie Ball is the best dentist I have been to in years and I was scared to go to a dentist after not going for three years. They are the best. The “bling” is only the feeling, not the price. They were actually cheaper than the previous dentist I went to for many years.

Carly Norton (Source: Google)


I have been avoiding the dentist for some time because I think it’s awkward and uncomfortable to have someone digging around in my mouth for an hour poking and prodding at my gums and teeth. However, this is a place I am looking forward (I mean as much as one can look forward to going back to the dentist) to. Jen and Dr. Katie were awesome and so warm and welcoming. Highly recommend this dental office.

Angela L. from West Linn, OR (Source: Yelp)


I just started going to Bling Dental and let me tell you this is the best dentist office I have ever been to. The doctors, hygienists, and staff are always professional and thorough. Dr. Katie and staff provide excellent service. I just had my 6 month check-up and my hygienist Kristen was fantastic. I love all the Bling Dental touches that make going to the dentist a much more pleasant experience. The flat screens mounted on the ceiling so I can watch The Princess Bride through a sweet pair of shades while being massaged in my chair – yes the dental chairs are massage chairs. The teeth cleaning itself was very thorough and gentle. I always appreciate going to a dentist office where you aren’t up-sold at every corner and told you need unnecessary dental work – that does not happen at this office which is so refreshing. Also I got free trays and whitening – score!! I love Bling Dental and now my boyfriend, family and friends go there! I highly recommend this dental office to everyone I know. Go see Dr. Katie and her staff today!

Amanda B. from Eugene, OR (Source: Yelp)


Finding a good dentist is HARD. When I relocated to Portland in 2011, I first tried a dentist in my neighborhood…it didn’t go well. I took a friend’s suggestion and tried Bling next. GAME CHANGER. They have seriously revolutionized the dental experience, with movies to watch, massage chairs, free teeth whitening with cleanings, prompt appointments, clear payment plans, helpful staff…did I mention the warm lavender towelettes for post cleaning splashes? Amazing. And the one time I had an insurance/billing snafu they were happy to work with me. I primarily see Dr. Mike, but I’ve seen Dr. Katie too, and they are both a pleasure. My husband and I now commute from Eugene for our appointments because we don’t want to go to anyone else.

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


Friendly, knowledgeable staff who truly care about you and are experts in their field. You feel like you are going to the spa instead of the dentist. The prices are not expensive, however the level of service is top notch! Relax during your appointment with a movie of your choice on a flat screen TV, as you sit in your massage chair. Leave with free teeth whitening each appointment to keep your smile on point. Dr Katie and staff are the best! I now love going to the dentist!

Jen Kind (Source: Facebook)


I just cannot say enough nice things about Bling Dental – and specifically about Dr. Katie and her hygienist, Jodie. Dr. Katie got me through some intense dental stuff a few years ago and even came in on her day off one time just to write me a prescription I needed urgently. I just met Jodie today and she is the sweetest, most understanding hygienist I have ever worked with. I have a really bad gag reflex when it comes to the x-rays at the dentist and I get pretty nervous to do them. I just couldn’t do it today, so she rescheduled my appointment so I can take some prescribed Valium beforehand and be ready for everything. She was soooo patient and empathetic when she was trying to do the x-rays and I just couldn’t take it. She didn’t make me feel bad at all for not being able to handle it. I’ve had negative experiences from other hygienists who would get frustrated and impatient when I struggled with the x-rays. I’ve also worked with a few other hygienists at Bling and every single one of them were fantastic! Plus, they have TV’s on the ceiling with a bunch of options for movies and shows! It’s a nice distraction when someone has their hands in your mouth!

L. M. from Oakland, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went to Bling Dental today for a cleaning. Going to my previous dentist was such a nightmare that I’ve been putting off going to the dentist again but I was way past due for a cleaning so I finally sucked it up and made an appointment. I’m so glad that I went here. They were incredibly friendly, there was a cute puppy in the lobby, they were more thorough than any dental clinic I’ve ever been to, they provided excellent info and tips to keep my teeth healthy and I feel like the work that they did was really great. They were on the expensive side but they took my flexible spending account card so it was all cool to me. I absolutely recommend them to everyone.

I cannot speak more highly of this dental office. I would have never thought I would say (write) this: “I enjoy going to the dentist”. They have thought through the entire user experience, from the the moment you walk into in to the checkout process. I also love the continuity I have with my hygienist from day#1. The entire staff is very friendly and makes you feel welcome. Also, they have TVs on the ceiling with either pretty nature photos or a show/movie of your choice via Apple TV. The staff is extremely nice and Dr. Katie talks to you for more than a minute. Did I mention their at-home free whitening kit?

Evelyn L. from Portland, OR (Source: Yelp)


Ok, so the main reason I chose this dentist was because I live 2 blocks away. I was a bit turned off by all the”bling” (“bling” screamed pricey and flashy to me) so I didn’t know what to expect. But I was put into ease immediately by my hygeinist, Michelle. She was very nice and personable, and did everything she could to make sure I felt comfortable. The x-rays were the most painful part, because I have a small mouth but she was very patient. The gum check and cleaning were not the most comfortable procedures, but I was easily distracted by ear phones and a TV screen showing of Mean Girls on the ceiling, what a great idea! Michelle was very knowledgable about dental health and bruxism (teeth grinding) and answered all my questions well. After the cleaning was done, we had trays made for teeth whitening (which were FREE). Then, Dr. Katie Ball came in to talk to me and examine my teeth. She was very friendly, and gave me some more great advice on bruxism. Overall, I was happy with my 1 hour and 45 minutes new patient appointment. Left with a big goody bag and will be picking up my teeth whitening trays in a few days. Can’t say that I’m dying to return, but I’ll make sure I’m keeping my 6-month appointment!

I’ve been going to Bling Dental for many years and I can only speak very highly of them. All the staff are very friendly and professional, they are very flexible with changing schedules and I’ve never had one billing issue. Dr.Katie does a great job of running her practice. The office is conveniently located, we’ll decorated and comfortable. As someone who needs to go to the dentist quarterly, I appreciate having a TV and noise cancelling headphones to watch a movie whilst I have dental work done

Lago P. from Portland, OR (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Raymond and Dr. Katie and the entire Bling staff help make a trip to the dentist an event to which I look forward. The staff has performed regular check ups. Both hygienists have been thorough and gentle. I have had a filling on a front tooth to address a receding gum. This was completed expertly. Most recently I began Invisalign treatment to address the shift of my teeth after having had braces 25 years ago. Braces in my 40s was something I anticipated. However, I would much rather have my teeth into my 80s. Dr. Raymond, Dr. Katie, and everyone at Bling Dental do excellent work. They receive my highest endorsement.

Best dentist anyone ever had. I have been with them for almost 3 years now and recommend them any time a friend needs a dentist. They have a beautiful space. You can tell they put a lot of time and effort into making it beautiful and welcoming. This kind of effort infuses every part of Dr. Katie’s practice. Bling Dental has many amenities that help make me feel comfortable: warmed blankets cleaned after each use (great for ACed offices), TVs on the ceiling with headphones, warm moist towels scented with lavender for face and hands, pillows for knees and neck (with removable coverings for cleanings between use. I don’t care about that much, but I know others which is why I included that info), hygienists wear casual uniforms that make you feel less in a severe medical situation and more hanging with a professional friend, single use toothbrushes in the bathroom, full length mirrors around – they are easy to avoid if you hate that also easy to gravitate toward if you love a mirror. Though they specialize in cosmetic dentistry I have hardly taken them up on that aspect of their practice. I mostly go to the (3 times a year) for cleanings. I have been through two dental emergencies with them, a root canal cap replacement, a front tooth chip (twice, my bite is messed up so it will almost always inevitably chip again, but they fix me up beautifully each time) and I have found them to be kind, personal but also very professional, compassionate, incredibly knowledgeable, smart, competent and just really comforting. Dr. Katie is seriously amazing and smart and so so nice. My hygienist, Jordan, is so non-judgmental, knowledgable without being condescending, very charming and funny. She’s the best! I really do look forward to my dental appointments which I think is the best compliment I could give a dentist. Anyways, I love the environment they have created there and hope my insurance lets me go to them forever!

I am usually very nervous when I have to see my dentist. After my first visit at Bling Dental, Dr. Katie Ball I ‘learned’, there is no reason at all to be nervous. The whole team there is very friendly. They took the time to explain everything in detail. The whole atmosphere is perfect. It starts when you actually enter the office. It doesn’t feel like a dentist office at all. I also had the feeling that the team is taking care of you and they want to do the best for you and not to make money. I only can recommend this office, I will definitely stay with this team, no reason for me to find another dentist, I almost feel comfortable when I am there. Definitely 5*****!

Dr. Katie and her staff are the most exceptional group of people. Their office is beautiful, and everyone within it is gracious, fun, warm, and accommodating. Dr. Katie is committed to providing her patients with the kindness, expertise, and care of a true professional. Whoever hates going to the dentist, has not yet experienced Bling!

Tiffany K. from Longview, WA (Source: Yelp)


Love! Love! Love! I drive an hour each way to visit the wonderful, professional staff at Bling. I have never been to a dentist where I have felt like they REALLY care about you, your smile and dental issues. The dr’s and staff always are upbeat and positive, no matter what procedure you need done. From cleanings to Invisalign, to crowns and bridges~definitely the BEST in the NW!! I strongly recommend you give the staff at Bling a shot at serving you and your dental needs. I have truly been blessed by the compassion and treatments I have received there. I love my smile and it’s ALL because of Bling!

Amy N. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


I ordered one of the new toothbrushes through a coupon site. An error occurred where I actually ordered it for full price, plus another one that I had bought at the discounted rate. A member of the staff called me back within one day and had the problem corrected. My refund was in my account the following business day! She also sent me an email to follow-up. Wonderful customer service! I hope the toothbrush works just as well!

Tess M. from Portland, OR (Source: Yelp)


Bling does an exceptional job, but beyond that they have something that most dentist offices have long lost … customer service. This is visible whenever you call the front desk, to when you are greeted and cared for by an assistant to when you have conversations with and work done by the doctor. They ask questions, listen to your answers and want you to have the most pleasant expereince you can, while experiencing the best care and leaving the most satisfied. I have long feared dentists. They have turned me into someone who knows I’m being looked after and cared for and will not leave feeling like I was not given personalized service. They really went above and beyond, and for that, I will be a forever patient.

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


I have had a phobia of the dentist since I was a child. I have not been to the dentist in the past 10-12 years. I finally broke down and made an appointment. WOW…my first appt for x-rays and a cleaning was FABULOUS! I had to return for a crown and I am so amazed at how easy it was. Dr. Katie is so nice and patient. The dental techs are absolutely amazing. They are so sweet, patient, and gentle. There is a flat screen tv on the ceiling to distract you (you can bring your own movie or they have some to choose from). The dental chair massages your back while they are doing the dentistry. They cured me of my phobia of the dentist. I highly recommend them for any and all dental needs!!!!

Sarah A. from Jacksonville, OR (Source: Yelp)


I love Bling Dental. I have been to the dentist WAY too many times, braces, cleanings, root canals, the whole shabang. Bling Dental was definitely one of my top dentists. When I arrived there, (with all my paperwork filled out before I for there) I waited for about 5 minutes until I was called back into the room. Once we got my Xrays all done I got to pick out a movie to watch, they have TV’s on the ceiling above the chairs. With subtitles playing or the option to use the headphones they provide. Oh, and did I mention that the exam chairs are massage chairs?? 🙂 Thats a great perk! I got my teeth cleaned, they feel AMAZING! My exam went well, I take better care of my teeth than I thought. Overall, Bling is a great place. And not just because the whole place is chrome and sparkly!

I have been coming here since 2015 upon moving to Portland. From the receptionists to the Dental Assistants to the Doctors – everyone here is friendly and knowledgeable. They all put the emphasis on personal care and individual attention. Finding a good dentist office is hard; so glad to have found them. Special shout out to Amy who is amazing and thorough – one of the best Dental Hygienist’s I’ve had ever in my 60+ years!!!

Patti K. from Portland, OR (Source: Yelp)


You hate the dentist right? You cringe when you hear that drill. Your stomach leaps when the hygienist scrapes that concrete stuff off your teeth (and you wonder, when did I eat concrete?). You know who you are – and this review is for YOU: First, all the staff is friendly, personable, and will get to know you (and they remember you too). Next, you sit in the [dreaded] chair, look up, and there’s a movie playing on an HD TV on the ceiling. Who thought of THAT? Massage chair – oh heck yeah. Then, you’re treated like, well, like YOU matter. Oh, and that sand you end up eating for about a week after a cleaning…not there. I had to get a sealant replaced on a tooth. No anesthesia, he uses “air”. I’m thinking, my hair will likely fly right off my scalp from pain, but no. 30 seconds after he started, he was done. I was like, “um, when do we start?” No, we’re done. Easy peasy. Then there’s the Icing whitening… if you’ve ever tried to whiten your teeth, and end up with tooth sensitivity akin to a hot poker in your eye – this is the whitening for you. Follow the directions = NO sensitivity. YEE HAA! Every time I go in to Bling, I’m greeted with a smile. They remember me. They thank me for referring them clients (and they remember which clients I referred). I love the dentist now!!!…and you will too

When I first heard about Bling Dental, I was intimidated. I wasn’t sure if the environment they’ve created would make me feel comfortable, as I had heard about their more modern take on dentistry. I had read the reviews here on yelp and felt like I still wasn’t sure. After a coworker referred me, I decided to give them a try. After my experience with Bling, I feel terrible for worrying about them. While the staff is all young and gorgeous, they are also incredibly kind, funny and straight forward; all qualities I appreciate in someone who is working on my mouth for extended periods of time. The building itself is also hands down one of the coolest spaces I’ve ever been to any kind of appointment in. It’s beautifully done and not cluttered with overly bright lighting. While all of the people I worked with were great, the assistant — who I believe was named Will — was awesome. He had me laughing like crazy and he made getting X-rays and a mold of my teeth a little more comfortable. I also worked with a hygienist named Jordan, who explained everything really well and didn’t make me feel like a total idiot for my tooth issues. And finally, I worked with Dr. Katie who was awesome. She suggested a mouth guard, but also told me I should try to fix the problems myself through different means before making that purchase. That is something no dentist has ever done, so I appreciated it so much. Obviously, I enjoyed the perks everyone has talked about. Watching a movie made the uncomfortable parts fly by and I am excited to go pick up my whitening trays. I have to go back to Bling to get more work done, so my review could change, but right now I am confident that I chose the right dentist. I’m a fan! Thanks, Dr. Katie, Jordan and Will.

Brice T. from Alphabet District, Portland, OR (Source: Yelp)


I have always loathed going to the dentist, and it will forever be impossible to totally change that about me. Over the years of coming to Bling, the entire staff has worked overtime to make me feel at home, comfortable, and pain free. They will always be my top only recommendation for any dental work. Jordan keeps me laughing during my appointments and maintains putting my mind at ease for the entire procedure. Dr Katie is a beautiful, very skilled and a super kind dentist. They are classy, cutting edge, and hip. I literally look forward to seeing them and will never go anywhere else.

Every experience I have had at Bling Dental has been so pleasant and I haven’t been able to say that about any of my dentists before. Alaina was an incredible help when I was nervous and was very conscious of my comfort during the entire visit. The health of my teeth and gums has improved significantly since working with her, we even high-fived at my last visit because they were looking SO MUCH BETTER!

Nicole S. from Napa, CA (Source: Yelp)


When I left San Francisco for the gloomy Portland I had to say goodbye to many beloved things – anything/everything delivered to my doorstep day or night; widely available excellent ethnic foods; affordable and accessible taxis that take credit cards; pleasantly priced blowouts; et al. But despite the many goodbyes I was so happy to say hello to my new dentist. Dr. Katie and her lovely staff! Once you go Bling you never go back! They will wow you and make you feel so welcome that you will never want to see another dentist in your life. Whatever your dental/ortho/oral needs are I highly recommend Bling!
