I have been a patient of Dr. Dexter’s for years and I could not be happier. I love his approach to patient care and I’ve never felt rushed during my appointments. Dr. Dexter is excellent, warm and personable and makes you feel at ease. One of his dental hygienists, Aniela, is always very friendly and patient as well. Dr. Dexter also displays artwork from local photographers in his office. The artwork changes so it’s fascinating and refreshing to see what’s on display each time I visit. I highly recommend Dr. Dexter and his practice! Thank you very much, guys!

I’ve been going to Dr. Dexter for a few years now, following many experiences with other dentists. Dr. Dexter and his office and staff are the end of my search. They are awesome, and I recommend them to everyone I know. Dr. Dexter is very knowledge and personable, explains things well, and has a good humorous attitude. His work is great and has been done right every time. Dr. Dexter was even able to fix a dental emergency I had the next morning on a weekend (within hours of it happening.) The person who does the front scheduling and payment is also really nice to interact with, as are the hygienists who work there. It’s exactly the experience and results you want when going to the dentist.

Best Dentist I’ve ever had and I feel I’ve been fortunate to have some good ones! It’s always an enjoyable appointment and Dr. Dexter is gentle, kind and great with his explanation of whatever procedure he’s undertaking — as well as with with giving alternatives when available. I can’t say enough good about everyone in the whole office!

I nothing but good to say about Dr. Dexter. He is our family Dentist, we’ve always been pleased with his technical skills over the last decade. He is caring, compassionate, gentle and funny. I like a Dentist who has a good sense of humor! He also has a great office staff. His Dental Assistant and Hygienist are top notch. His office is clean, comfortable and artsy. There is plenty of easy parking.

They rock! Everyone is very nice and Dr. Dexter is such a kind man and funny too! I have severe anxiety of dentists because of past experiences but he has a way of calming me down without even knowing it. lol He explains everything he’s going to do before he does it and takes the time to explain my questions. I highly recommend Dr. Dexter!

I’ve had fear-mongering dentists and flashy in-your-face dentists over the years, and was so pleased to find that Dr. Dexter is neither. His calm, genuine demeanor is reassuring and soothing, and I appreciated that he spent a good amount of time talking through each step of my dental issues. He also gave me the low-down on treatment and fluoride during pregnancy, and explained why his advice was different than the general OB guidelines – again, I felt respected and cared for. The hygienist and receptionist are also lovely. So glad that I chose Dr. Dexter!

I miss living in Eugene so I can have Dr. Dexter as my full-time dentist! I returned last week to have an evaluation of the health of my teeth. He was able to file across the bottom front row to give me an even smile, which also will strengthen my teeth. They have this new camera that allows you to look at the full set of your teeth as a photo and to have a deep conversation about what is happening. Go, Dr. Dexter, go! Wish you could move to Seattle!

Dr. Dexter and his staff were a welcoming, kind, and knowledgable office. The assistant was gentle while taking many x-rays. Dr. Dexter thoroughly explained what he was doing during the exam in a way that was very relatable and understood. The front desk was very kind and friendly during check in and check out. I am so grateful to have found a dentist and staff that I can feel comfortable with. Wonderful art in the office as well!

Excellent care, skill and information. I have never been as impressed with any other Dentist as I have been with Dr. Dexter (and my Godfather was my first Dentist). Dr. Dexter was initially recommended to me by a friend when I had a dental emergency (very painful exposed nerve). He was able to see me on short notice and was able to take care of the problem in short order. I found Dr. Dexter to be the best informed, most communicative and technically adept Dentist I’ve ever gone to for treatment. He is extremely proficient when giving shots (one of the most concerning aspect of many folks visits to the dentist), In a few years of treatment, I have never felt his needle. He always fully explains treatment options and is fully up to speed on the latest techniques and treatments. It’s not often that folks are as enthusiastic about their dentists, but I have always been EXTREMELY satisfied with the care I’ve received from Dr. Dexter and his team.

Dr. Donald Dexter is a wonderful dentist. He is always thorough, professional and thoughtful in his explanations and treatment, as well as being an artist in his reconstructive dental work. Dr. Dexter’s staff are also topnotch. Going to his office was always a pleasant experience–which is no small feat, being that it is a dental office.

I found Dr Dexter and all his staff to be very competent and caring. They all take the time to fully explain things to you, be it your dental work, or your charges and insurance coverage. They answer all questions and work to make you comfortable during your visit. Need a pillow? How about a blanket? Jessie even helped me to my car during a snow-ice event! Who does that? I couldn’t be more pleased to have found such a treasure!

Been going to Dr Dexter for many years and never had a problem. I work with 100 people and have heard a few horror stories from their dental experiences. I’m thankful of all the work done by Dr Dexter that I’ve never had a problem with. If you need a dentist that runs a clean tight ship and does it right make a appointment you won’t be sorry. Ps I’m not family or friends outside of being a patient just giving a honest review of a great dentist. Dave

This is a complete care office, from the folks at the front desk to everyone who works in the back. All are friendly, professional, and make the experience of being at the dentist downright pleasant. I’ve been going here for the 11 years I’ve lived in Eugene, and all the work, from cleanings to fillings and crowns, has been first rate. I highly recommend Dr. Dexter’s office to everyone I know who is looking for a first-rate dentist in town.

Every experience with Dr. Dexter and his staff leaves me feeling very cared for and seen. The office is a beautiful and welcoming space and the dental care is unsurpassed. I cherish this place as quality care is hard to come by in Eugene, I have found. Thank you so much for the genuine care in people and relationships!

Clean, professional and modern practice. Dr. Dexter, hygienists, assistants and front desk are extremely professional, knowledgable and friendly. Really never been a big fan of going to the dentist but I have never been able to shake my sweet tooth. In other words I will be needing a dentist for the rest of my life. Glad I found this place. They make me feel comfortable and are very understanding of my discomfort levels. I love how they educate me of any issues with my teeth or gums so I can better prevent issues in the future and save money down the road. They also do a great job of laying out and prioritizing my plan for future visits. If you’re looking for a good dental practice this is the one.

I have had so many bad experiences with dentists I never thought I would seek one out again… When the pain in my mouth got unbearable though, I had to seek out a dentist, my biggest fear, needles in my mouth, drilling, pain, carelessness. I no longer feel any anxiety seeing a dentist. Dr. Dexter talked me through everything, he was so nice, he explained stuff, there was no pain. I would highly recommend this guy to anyone. He’s amazing! I am now looking foreword to getting the rest of my teeth fixed, cleaned, and chatting with this super awesome dentist (and his nice assistant). 5 stars all the way!!

Dr Dexter and his staff are great ! I went in for my teeth cleaning on his re-opening day. Felt very safe and facility was clean and properly prepared. Called from car, was informed could come in as no other patients in office, questions asked, temp taken. Barriers up in proper places and hygienist wore a face shield as well as the usual protective gear. I felt Dr Dexter and his staff went out of their way to make me feel safe.

I just love Dr Dexter and his staff. I was very hesitant to go to the dentist after being away for a LONG time. My first visit eight months ago was awesome – everyone made me feel very comfortable and the process was smooth from start to finish. All of his staff are incredibly friendly and make visiting the dentist an easy and pleasant experience. I returned yesterday for a cleaning and this visit was even better than the first. They’re just great. Highly recommend!

Our son recommended Dr Dexter when we moved to Eugene about 9 years ago, and my husband and I have been his patients since that time. His office is pleasant and welcoming, and is conveniently located for us. Dr Dexter is personable and kind and has a great deal of integrity. He is gentle and seems very good at what he does. He explains everything that he will do and answers all questions. He utilizes the latest technology and stands behind his work. Everyone in his office is pleasant and professional.

Pat C. from Eugene, OR (Source: Yelp)


A caring, thorough going dentist who fully explains what he is doing and why. Doesn’t recommend stuff just to recommend it and make money–recommends only what is really necessary and also based on your preferences for the level of care you want. First class office staff–the whole visit is as pleasant as it can be at a dentist’s office. Highly recommended.

Dr. Dexter cured me of my shame/blame attitude toward my dental condition. His patience, empathy and expertise lent security to my anxious self. I was given excellent referrals for surgery. Dr. Dexter’s staff approach me always with patience, flexibility and kindness. I can always count on a lovely, clean, modern, artsy office and interesting conversation! I appreciate the wonderful treatment Ireceive.

For more than 25 years, Dr. Donald Dexter has provided outstanding dental care to me and my family, and my son and his family also continue as patients under Dr. Dexter’s care. My own experience has been exceptional. Dr. Dexter has provided exceptional routine preventative care and prophylaxis, with an excellent staff of dental hygienists and techs ensuring that one’s teeth are fully examined and carefully cleaned. Dr.Dexter has also provided outstanding prosthodontic treatment to address tooth loss and compromise arising from poor care in childhood. His skills in designing superior replacements for tooth loss bring me to his office for updates and occasional routine repairs over many years. There is in my opinion no one better able to craft effective and aesthetically pleasing dental devices. Dr. Dexter is a caring and sensitive dentist. He ensures that the patient is comfortable before and during procedures, and he explains in detail the steps to be taken during examination and dental procedures. I recommend Dr. Dexter and his staff enthusiastically to patients of any age and their families.

Dr. Dexter is the most professional, caring, compassionate, and skilled dentist I have ever seen. I have been a patient of Dr. Dexter for close to 19 years, and he has truly gotten me over the anxiety I experience from 28 years of painful and unprofessional barbarism, pretending to be dentistry. I appreciate everything about Don’s practice, from the way he interacts with patients and staff, to the way he demonstrates his holistic relationship to health and the environment. Don Dexter is a great dentist, and a good man; his smile and kind heart bring light into our world. Thank you Don.

Amazing and friendly service. I had a wonderful and welcoming experience from my first step through the door until I left. There was never a sliver of a doubt about what was happening since Dr. Dexter kindly and patiently explained every step he was taking. No one likes spending their day at the dentist’s office, but that’ll change once you see Dr. Dexter and his team.

I can’t rave enough about Dr D and his Crew! I’ve never felt so soothed and comfortable in a Dentist’s office before. They’re very warm and friendly, all and the vibe is super laid back with great art all over the office and Lemon Water and a scented mist machine in the waiting room. Go here: you’ll be in splendid hands! 😉

I am very glad that a friend told me about Dr Dexter’s office. I was impressed on my initial visit with the thorough and professional exam that Dr Dexter performed. Soon after, I unfortunately cracked a crown. I got in to his office the same day I called to assess the damage. The replacement crown appointment was accomplished with ease. I am very pleased with both the process and the result. I highly recommend using this office for good dental care.

Dr. Dexter is great at taking his time to explain everything, walk you though the procedure, the reasoning, and even the science behind his decision making! Office staff is super competent, you won’t be left waiting in line or struggling to make an appointment. You can even schedule easily over email. Office itself is clean, comfortable and bright.

Dr Dexter and staff are amazing. He’s very knowledgeable and skilled and what he does. He’s polite, down to earth. The people who I have recommended to him are very happy with his work and staff. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. I highly recommend him. I usually don’t fill out reviews but he deserves it. Been going with him for about 7 years.
