Today was my first visit to this practice. Hubby & I had reached a level of frustration with an area chain practice (think: fruit logo) refusing to return. Thanks Yelp Reviewers for the wonderful recommendations. I sent hubby in first — you know, to test the fluoride for me, so to speak. He was quite satisfied with the experience. I thought it was worth a risk to schedule my annual exam. How do you spell OMG!? The visit was wonderful, exceeding every expectation and standard of service I had imagined a good dental outfit would offer. From the moment I walked in, I was greeted by a pleasant as punch receptionist, the dental assistance who escorted me back to the exam / x-ray areas was even friendlier and very gentle with the bite wings — never a pleasant requirement. And then…..Dr. Kai entered the room revealing most of his pearly whites. I’d swear his smile actually sparkled! His manner is professional, approachable, respectful, considerate, and gentle. But it gets better. Tawny the talented tooth tactician — aka: hygienist extraordinaire — polished my teeth with skill. This is definitely the practice of our choice. You can probably guess: we recommend this practice VERY highly.

I am a new patient. I have been going to dentists for 40 years. This is the most welcoming, pleasant and personable dental staff I have encountered. Dr. Hahn and Tanya, the hygienist, did the most thorough dental examinations I have ever had. They were diligent in explaining step by step everything they were doing. They took a surprising amount of time with me and answered all my questions. Latanya, the lead dental assistant was very attentive to my comfort as she took the digitalized pictures of my teeth, and so cheerful. Leah, at the front desk, was very gracious and helpful about my insurance coverage. This is a remarkable team. They combine state of the art dental service with personal concern for the patient. I am quite pleased I chose them for my dental needs.

Wonderful and fun staff. Their work is fast and well done. No pain and always willing to work with me to keep me comfortable. Very considerate of my time. When things got busy and I had to wait longer than expected, they gave me a gift card in appreciation of my patience. Thanks.

I can’t say enough about the quality of the people and the services at Edelweiss Dental. From my very first phone call, it was clear that this is a business that values high quality service. To say that every employee I interacted with was friendly and courteous would be an understatement. These folks are the real deal. And when I had an unexpected anxiety attack mid procedure, the hygienist treated me so kindly and seamlessly altered the care plan to make me more comfortable. If you are looking for a dental office that will change the way you feel about going to the dentist, this is the place for you.

I had my first appointment at Edelweiss this week. I was very impressed! The office is very nice and clean. The entire staff, hygienists, and doctor were all very friendly. I felt very comfortable asking questions. They spent a lot of time taking x-rays and pictures to have for future reference. It seemed all the staff really enjoyed working there, which makes for a very comfortable environment. I would definitely recommend Dr. Hahn and Edelweiss Dental!

Dana W. from Portland, OR (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Hahn and his amazing staff at Edelweiss Dental are so friendly, and they always make you feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible. Their customer service is outstanding. I had treatments that required me to be in the office every 6 weeks, and the atmosphere was the same positive and friendly environment every single visit. They really are as good as it gets!

Amelia F. from Portland, OR (Source: Yelp)


I had not been to the dentist in years, but after my partner swore by Dr. Hahn and his team I finally sucked it up and made an appointment. SO GLAD I DID! From start to finish the whole team was great about communicating with me about what they were doing and what my options were, working with me to schedule procedures to limit my out of pocket. The whole experience was painless and professional.

Paige E. from Portland, OR (Source: Yelp)


Had my first appointment with Dr. Hahn and his staff today. Such a nice, warm and professional office. We are military and have moved many times over the years, so I’ve had many dentists. Unfortunately, I have had a number of bad dental experiences. This has to be one of if not THE best dental experiences I’ve ever had. They are thorough and gentle, explaining everything as they go. They are very considerate of your comfort. I am actually looking forward to my future appointments! Amazing. Thank you all very much. Highly recommend. P.S. They even found a next day appointment for me because of problems I’ve been having and took care of obtaining my previous records for me from several former dentists. So easy.

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


Last week I had 2 wisdom teeth pulled, a root canal, a temporary crown, a couple fillings and a deep clean all in one sitting. A few of my relatives say I am brave to have so much work done at one time but I broke a tooth and procrastinated getting it fixed for 2 years because I terrified of the dentist. It got to the point where I couldn’t deal with the pain anymore and knew I had to suck it up and deal with it. Dr. Hahn and his staff are fabulous. The first time I went in there my 75 year old Grandmother had to drag me in there because she knew I wouldn’t go on my own and she didn’t want me to be in pain anymore. When I got to the office and had the x-rays done, I felt comfortable around the staff. especially Latanya and Leah. I also met another gal who went to School with 2 of my younger siblings. I was given some antibiotics to help with the pain and I appreciated that. So I took a few weeks to figure out how I was going to pay for all the work and finally went in. Dr. Hahn assured me that I would be comfortable- he was right. I never had a root canal before but I always heard horror stories from alot of friends/family about how dreadful they are. I have to say, it wasn’t that bad. To me, it just felt like a filling. After the extractions and other work were done and I finally went home, Latanya called me to check up and left me some nice voicemail’s since I was asleep for the most part. I would recommend Edelweiss Dental to anyone who is terrified of the dentist like I was. Trust me, if you are in pain and you aren’t going to the dentist because you are scared or have a dental anxiety the nice folks of Edelweiss will help you feel calm and safe.

I really can’t say enough about Dr. Hahn and his friendly staff. They make going to the dentist a delight! From the coffee in the lobby, to the sunglasses and a blanket during my cleaning, they go out of their way to make their patients comfortable and relaxed. I found myself without dental insurance during my last visit, and they offer payment plans, which I thought was also really great. It also helps that Dr. Hahn himself has a great personality and is a pleasure to be around.

Best dentist ever!!! Dr. Hahn makes me look forward to my visits and his staff is amazing. Kristina, Tamie and all his staff are always happy and ready to help in any way they can. I will be a life long patient and I recommend this office to everyone looking for an exceptional dental experience.

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


Very skilled, articulate, funny dentist. Super clean waiting area that is a genuinely nice place to wait, super clean and modern clinical rooms, professional & kind staff that made everything so, so easy. I’m really impressed and felt totally safe and taken care of. My root canal wasn’t the easiest. The numbing medication has worn off and my tooth and jaw feel almost 100% better.

We love Edelweiss Dental and cannot say enough good things about Dr. Hahn. He is absolutely hilarious but don’t think that distracts from his professionalism. He has a very modern office and great tools. He also is good about not pressuring you into unnecessary procedures but giving you “wish list” or “someday” items rather than just making money by making you get procedures done. The hygiene and reception staff are also absolutely wonderful and make you look forward to a trip to the dentist. Personally, I also love the waiting are with the coffee machine, pictures of the alps, and the St. Apollonia statue.

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


I went to Edelweiss because they are around the corner from my house, and they had sparkling reviews on Yelp. So I am adding another! I have terrible fear of the dentist and didn’t go to one for about ten years! Every person I come in contact with there is dear, sweet, kind, goes out of her way to make me feel safe and comfortable, and welcome. Dr. Hahn in kind and patient. Most of all, I have not had any pain in the procedures I have gone through. I haven’t ever had such good dental treatment! I think everyone there is very good at what they do, everything is beautiful and clean, the waiting room is very very nice. They are also helpful in strategizing what to do and when, so that my insurance covers everything that it should cover. And I never feel rushed, as I do at Kaiser, which I hate. Leaving Kaiser in the fall. Today I had a cleaning, the first in ten years, as I said, with Tanya. She was so professional, and kind, and I did not feel pain. She is a goddess. I can’t imagine a better dental experience, really. This is THE place for me.

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


Dr. Hahn and his staff are wonderful. I had not been to a dentist in about a decade and was quite nervous about my first visit. I have required a fair amount of follow-up, but every time I’m there I am at ease. The staff helped me navigate a bunch of insurance stuff, the hygienist and dental assistants are extremely nice and knowledgeable. I have a feeling Dr. Hahn treats his staff well, which is also important to me. Highly recommend Edelweiss. I plan on staying with Dr. Hahn for as long as possible.

I had a lot of dental work done here in August and September 2014, and Dr. Hahn was by far the best dentist I’ve ever had. His clinic is beautiful and his staff are absolutely wonderful–from the moment you step through the doors, you feel welcome. I highly recommend the entire team.

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


I never though I would like my dentist office so much. Seriously, everyone there is just the nicest ever. It seems like Dr. Hahn is very good to the staff as well, the one time I was in the were having a half day to all go wine tasting as a work event. Their skills and equipment are also top notch. Also, its important to me to call and get a person right away, and to not sit forever in waiting rooms. They excel in both of these areas.

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


I have irrational anxiety about the going to the dentist, but after a three-year sabbatical, I decided I needed to get back in the chair. I have driven past Edelweiss many times running errands in my neighborhood and finally called for an appointment. From start to finish, everyone was super friendly, professional, respectful and simply kind. I received an extremely thorough, efficient evaluation and treatment with clear communication about a recommended, prioritized plan of care. Bonus: a golden, furry love bug named Toby, who I found to be most therapeutic! Thanks to everyone at Edelweiss for your care.

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


I’ve been going to Edelweiss for several months now and I love it! The office is really warm and inviting and I feel really comfortable there. Dr. Hahn is very attentive and always makes sure I’m comfortable and pain free. I love the staff also, really nice and professional but not stuffy. The hygienist is very detail oriented and gives me pointers on how to keep my teeth healthy. Love her! And she’s not rough with the floss, as some are. My experience with Invisalign there has been great too. Making appointments is super easy and convenient with their extended hours. Dr. Hahn is probably the best dentist I’ve ever been to. I went to him after I had a bad experience at another office and he fixed the issue with no problem and saved my tooth. The office is a little out of the way for me, but it’s absolutely worth it to get the quality of care and attention I get there. If you’re looking for a new dentist, go to Edelweiss!

Briauna D. from Portland, OR (Source: Yelp)


I went here for a cleaning and was blown away by the service! Every single employee was extremely friendly. Through the whole process things were explained to me (didn’t even have to ask), no one was pushy about getting dental work done, everyone knew what they were doing. I did not receive any negative/condescending comments regarding my oral hygiene. They paused for breaks incase you need water or to use the bathroom. In addition to all this I have issues with my blood sugar and was on a strict time schedule, they were extremely understanding and accommodating!

F. D. from Happy Valley, OR (Source: Yelp)


I agree with the other viewers, i’m A big fan of Tawny and Dr Hahn as well. I needed a root canal and Dr Hahn explained the whole procedure from start to finish as well as why I needed to have it. He was right, I am no longer experiencing pain. I’ve never felt pressured for extensive dental work just suggestions.

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


My soft, porous, teeth have seen far too many dentists. Fortunately, they’ve found a permanent doctor with Dr. Hahn. He is bar-none the best dentist I have had my entire life, and I whole-heartedly recommend him to anyone searching for a new office. I won’t bore you with the details, but he and his office pay close attention to the detail of your teeth and gums, along with who you are as a person. In fact, after giving birth to our first child, the office sent flowers to our home. They are warm and greeting every time we arrive, know the name of our dogs, always ask how we are doing, and genuinely care about us. They help with insurance issues, do what they can to remedy any concerns you have, and really go out their way to make your experience a positive one. Choose this dentist and thank me later.

Danny H. from Cambridge, MA (Source: Yelp)


Love this place. Very clean and professional environment. They communicate very, very well. All of the staff that I have encountered are all very friendly and sociable. I convinced my wife to make the switch and she did. I recommend this place to anyone who hates stuffy dentist experiences. Lots of great natural lighting.

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


I totally second the previous post. The staff are kind and just wonderful to work with. They are very accommodating and work hard to make sure you are comfortable and happy. I am a nervous dentist goer so I was initially hesitant to try a new dentist. I’ve been really pleased with how helpful, informative, and pain-free my appointments have been (despite getting a root canal). I highly recommend Edelweiss.

It’s been several years since I needed any real dental work so I was a bit nervous about the…you know, the shots! Dr. Hahn has great technique with this and I didn’t even feel them 🙂 LaTania the dental assistant was great and even the office manager was attentive to my comfort level. A very personable experience.


Have the Best of Both Worlds: Old Fashioned Service with Modern Dentistry We, at Edelweiss Dental, understand that coming to the dentist in the past, has rarely been an appointment to look forward to. Dentistry has come a long way in recent years, with that however, we feel the personal touch and "family" has been lost in a lot of dental practices. It is our mission to deliver not just quality, modern dentistry, for you and your family, but to also welcome you back to the old days of true customer service; where everybody knows your name, and where we actually care about you and not just your teeth. Even though Edelweiss Dental is our new name, we have been serving the North Portland community, on this block, for over 38 years. We pride ourselves on delivering the highest standards, not just of dental care, but in service. Dr. Hahn is proud to be the third dentist in his family to carry on the family tradition of exceptional dentistry married with the quality of personal service. He grew up in his father’s dental practice in Germany many years ago, and practicing dentistry has been his dream of his for as long as he can remember. Dr. Hahn believes that every patient has the right and ability to be in control of their own dental needs, whether it is preventative, cosmetic, or emergency. Peace of mind is rarely associated when you think of going to the dentist. But Dr. Hahn believes that by understanding you as his patient, using a thorough and gentle approach, everybody can have peace of mind and feel confident in their dental choices. With more than a decade of experience, Dr. Hahn has spent time honing his skills and seeking out only the most respected, peer reviewed continuing education courses. These courses, help him to continue to drive modern advancements and stay on top of the latest developments. Paired with his natural ability to make you feel welcome, comfortable, and understood, this will ensure you and your family feel right at home. Living in Germany throughout his childhood, Dr. Hahn fell in love with the European Alps. This inspired the name “Edelweiss Dental”. Edelweiss, is a pristine white flower that grows high above the tree line in the European Alps. It has always reminded him of the beauty in nature and he believes it is an excellent representation of the practice. As a North Portland resident, Dr. Hahn enjoys riding his bike around the surrounding community. You may also find him at the local restaurants enjoying their latest brew or a tasty appetizer. In addition to that, his efforts to keep up with his 2 young boys, Lukas and Stefan, is what keeps him young and active. He is also very proud of the fact that he has been voted, “World’s Best Papa”, 7 years running from his boys. They enjoy doing “boy” things, which includes building forts, going adventure exploring, and fishing. Give him a chance to allow you a different dental experience than you have ever had before! And with a growing practice, the best gift in return, would be the referral of your friends and family!
