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

Yvett R. from Portland, OR (Source: Yelp)


We first learned about Ensley when my son joined lacrosse. They made his custom mouthpiece and I believe they do that for football players as well. We knew it was about time for my son to get braces, so we decided to go back to Ensley since we’d really liked their friendly service. Fast forward to about a year and a half later . . . my son is toward the end of his orthodontic treatment and I have nothing but great things to say about our time with Ensley! I have had no problems at all with appointments, reminders, communication, etc. The staff are all friendly and informative. They tell my son what he needs to do in regard to care, rubber band placement, etc. then because he’s a kid, they explain everything to me as well. Little extras make this place even more special. They have fun little incentives to keep kids motivated to keep up with their oral hygiene. Patients tickets for being on time, brushing properly, no broken brackets, and then get to enter their tickets for drawings. They also have little contests each month (like guessing how many items are in a jar) as well as their Pet of the Month contest. Our own dog won a Pet of the Month and received a Petsmart gift card. All these little incentives make appointments not seem like such a chore. They also work with you with early morning appointments and remove wires for dental cleanings upon request. All this time without a single complaint and all very warm and hassle free service is very much appreciated!

Dr. Ensley is always friendly while maintaining an air of professionalism that inspires confidence in his knowledge and abilities. Our experience with my daughter’s somewhat complicated TMJ treatment was a good one, with Dr. Ensley giving us clear goals at the outset and keeping us informed every step of the way throughout treatment. The financial aspects of orthodontia can be daunting, but Dr. ensley”s accounting staff were wonderful at accomodating our needs and helping us through the process. I highly recommend this office.”

Great practice with awesome staff! My child’s mouth was (and still is) a work in progress and I appreciate the guidance and professionalism that this particular practice has offered. We even had “after hours” issues with broken bands and poking wires while my child had braces and the staff was readily available when needed. I believe that they go above and beyond. One thing in particular that stands out – they discuss all financial matters in a private office – something that not every office does. I have received various consultations at other dental practices where you financial business is discussed out in the open (especially in front of other staff members or patients). Not Ensley Orthodontics. They respect every patient’s needs and issues and act accordingly and will work with you to determine the best course of action for you or your family member. In regards to the person who gave this practice “one star.” I don’t know you, but after looking at the other reviews you have written on Yelp and determining that they are all negative, maybe one should consider the source…. enough said.

When it was time to find an orthodontist we asked our Dentist for a referral. Ensley was at the top of the list. We still interviewed two others to compare price and services, but Ensley stood out! We love the staff–they treat us like family. The office is a joy to visit with lots of perks to keep the kids enthusiastic about keeping up their braces. One beautiful smile down and two more in the process–so far the outcomes have been perfect!

Kelly R. from Beaverton, OR (Source: Yelp)


I would absolutely reccommend Ensley Orthodontics to anyone looking for orthodontic work. I seriously can’t say enough good things about this place. Every single staff member from the receptionists, the treatment planner, the technicians, to Dr. Ensley himself have been wonderful from start to finish. Dr. Ensley reccommended a treatment plan for me that was much faster and cheaper than I ever expected and I am thrilled with the results. This was probably the best experience I’ve ever had with any doctor or dentist ever.

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


I had been putting off orthodontic treatment for years, hesitant to do braces again now as an adult, but Dr. Ensley and his staff have actually made this process enjoyable! From my very first visit and with each subsequent one, everyone has been so very patient, kind, friendly and professional. I am also very impressed with his office, equipment, and bleeding edge technologies. Pictures of my teeth were taken so quickly and easily so that we were able to view them immediately on a large flatscreen to discuss. I am now halfway through my treatment plan and am already enjoying straighter teeth and a better bite. Furthermore, I’m not sure how many other local orthodontic practices offer the AcceleDent system to speed up the patient’s treatment, but Ensley Orthodontic does, and I highly recommend it. It’s a device which is placed in the mouth 20 minutes per day and with gentle vibrations speeds up bone remodeling. In short, my treatment plan should have taken 38 weeks, but thanks to Dr. Ensley making AcceleDent available to me, I’m only 9 1/2 weeks in and already halfway through!! Thank you again Dr. Ensley and staff… I cannot recommend you enough (and have been!)

Our oldest got his braces on this morning and so far, so good! The office is fun, comfortable and welcoming for all. They have activity options, including a bit of Xbox, for patients AND family members. And their rewards and motivation program is on point! My son already set a high bar for himself so that he can get   and win some of the super cool prizes. The staff was knowledgeable and patient with all of our questions. They also have a great sense of humor and a Pet Of The Month contest, which speaks straight to the of pet lovers such as our family.

My two sons and I have all received orthodontic treatments from Dr. Kevin Ensley. His knowledge about orthodontics is top rate. His easy-going style is friendly and relatable while displaying his deep knowledge and clear presentation of treatment options and processes. His staff is also excellent. Everyone is extremely nice, helpful and knowledgeable. The practice is very well organized and the office has a pleasant atmosphere for kids as well as adults. Everyone is very welcoming and makes sure patients and their families have the best possible orthodontic experience!

Today I was referred to Dr. Ensley Orthodonitics……what a pleasant surprise. Normally going into a Dental office or any Dr’s office is less than pleasant….Dr. Ensley and his staff are the complete opposite….THEY ARE EXCEPTIONAL. I first met Jen the Dental Assistant and she was exceptional; very friendly, sincere, knowledgeable and listens to me about my needs. Then I met Dr. Ensley and he too was friendly, sincere, knowledgeable and listened to me. He offered Professional opinions and the reasons behind them. Then her performed the task….easy as could be! THEN I went to the front desk and met Jennifer; again friendly and sincere. Here is where is really gets good….the fee charged was more than reasonable!!!!!!!!!!! IF you are looking for Orthodontic Care please do yourself a favor and contact Ensley Orthodontics…..you will be so glad you did!

I was positively impressed from the first day on how effectively this business is run. The dental office had top notch equipment and was cheerfully decorated , even had an old fashion pay telephone booth inside. All the employees cheerfully greeted me by my name as soon as they saw me and answered all my many questions. Loved the way patents were rewarded with raffle tickets for taking good care of their teeth during treatment. Smiled every time confetti can down out of the light fixtures to celebrate someone getting there braces removed. Can’t wait to share my new smile.

I have been a patient of Dr. Ensley since the early ‘90’s when he first opened his business in North Portland. I have always experienced a warm and friendly environment and Dr. Ensley and his staff are welcoming to everyone who walks in the door. They want the best for you and your teeth and will go above and beyond to provide impeccable customer service, even if you are experiencing hardship. Dr. Ensley and his team support the local Beaverton community and truly are a family establishment. I wholeheartedly recommend this orthodontic facility and hope to bring my kids here in the future!

When our pediatric dentist recommended we consider orthodontics we visited 3 different practices to gather information and quotes. Ensley Orthodontics correctly diagnosed my son’s dental issue and recommended a course of treatment using a combination of resources not connected with their office. Meaning, they made recommendations for the right fixes even though their office would not be getting paid for the work. Once we were through that phase of the work, Ensley Ortho put together a long-term treatment plan using the latest technology. The other 2 dentists we had seen recommended pulling teeth and permanent metal structures. We are now three years into the treatment plan and my son’s issues are almost completely resolved through a combination of speech therapy and non-invasive dental appliance (which he has already finished with and has been removed), and he is now in the tantalization phase of his treatment. The office is entirely geared around children’s experiences. They technicians are all well qualified and talented. If we had not gone with Ensley Ortho my son would now be missing 8 of his teeth, have metal bridges in his mouth, and still have problems swallowing and eating some foods. In my experience, Dr. Ensley and his staff are competent and caring. Communication is clear and there wern’t any hidden expenses or surprises.

Everyone at ensley orthodontics is so cheerful and nice. Dr. Ensley always makes conversation and makes the appointment better and the front staff are always smiling and helpful. I had Carli a handful of times throughout my experience and she is so great. Very funny and has a great personality. All in all my experience at Ensley Orthodontics couldn’t have gone any better than it did!! Thank you so much to all the staff at Ensley!!

We were referred to Ensley Orthodontics and I have to say that I am completely pleased with the service. They of course do a great job at orthodontic care, but that’s to be expected. Where they exceed expectations is in targeted customer care for both the kids and the parents. The environment is comfortable and friendly. I love that they incentivize outstanding oral care to the kids so that they really get engaged. They also create community with the kids and contests that they can participate in to win fun prizes. I also love that they are flexible for appointments in case a wire breaks or something happens that requires between-appointment care. While you’re waiting for your child, enjoy a coffee and stay productive with wifi. They really think of everything. It’s not easy to be this customer-oriented. They clearly make it a priority and that is truly what makes them unique.

First and for most I would like to address how extremely nice the staff at Ensley Orthodontics is. I have been with Ensley for the past 10 Year’s with both of my daughters having braces. I can honestly say I’m very pleased with my experience and the results that Ensley has given my daughters. My daughters love their smiles and can’t thank Ensley enough. You will definitely feel welcomed and have no doubt that this is the right choice for you. I strongly recommend that if you or anyone is searching for a place to begin the braces journey that this is the place to go.

I was referred by my Dentist to come to Ensley Orthodontics to get braces – at 54 years old! This can be a traumatic experience at any age, but Ensley Orthodontics has made this process really comfortable, from the initial meeting and now almost a year in. Dr Ensley treats each and every patient as though he has known you his entire life. His personable demeanor and professional expertise make you feel comfortable from the get go. The staff at Ensley Orthodontics are top notch, from the second you walk in – always greeting everyone with a smile and always in a good mood – even at some of those early, early morning appts. I would highly recommend Ensley Orthodontics to provide you with the best and most professional service and care you will find. Now, if I could just win one of the monthly raffle prizes!! 🙂

This place is incredible; I am 68 and decided to try the invisalign treatment. I have been so impressed by every appointment I have had through out the entire year. Staff are extremely knowledgeable, efficient, kind, patient, explaining every procedure being done to you. Every appointment has been on time as scheduled. Dr. Ensley comes and checks making sure everything is well and clearly knows how to run an efficient and effective office, starting with the clinic managers who are professional and thoughtful, including folks making appointments for you at the front desk. Thank you to Dr. Ensley and thank you staff. I would highly recommend seeing Dr. Ensley for any orthodontic procedure you might need or want.

I have just completed 4 years of orthodontic care as an adult senior. At my age I didn’t know what to expect. I had been a kindergarten teacher for many years, and during the time with Dr. Ensley became used to the exclamation, “Joanne, you have braces! So does my brother”. Everyone at Dr. Ensley’s office helped me to understand the process of correcting a misaligned bite and crowded teeth. They were not only experts in all the important jobs of the process, but were forever encouraging and positive. As a teacher I was especially impressed with the intention, and persistence needed to slowly and carefully correct major issues with my teeth that would have caused many problems in the future. I soon realized that I was in the care of not just an orthodontist, but an expert at his craft. Dr. Ensley also has assembled a team of equally skilled technitions and administrative support that enabled me, as a patient, to feel secure and cared for. I would recommend Dr. Ensley to anyone of any age! I may have retired during my four years with his office, but feel that I have a new, young, healthy smile. I am truly grateful to Dr. Ensley and his team.

Well, what can’t I say, this was probably the best experience that I could have had with braces. The staff were nice and funny, I enjoyed trying to win the contests but yet alas I was not able to. I quite enjoyed the whole theme of the place, it was not so childish that me, being a teenager would not enjoy but it was also not a boring office, I enjoyed my visit’s they were not something that I loathed nor did I forget. I hope that others that will come find the experience I had here to be not the same but better because I find that this place is always improving.

Terri S. from Beaverton, OR (Source: Yelp)


Dr Ensley and staff really make it a great experience to get braces!  They are always positive, willing to go the extra mile and work with their clients to ensure everyone is happy. We are on our fourth experience with Dr. Ensley and the results have been great. They have a lively atmosphere with contests, etc. that make it fun for kids. They truly try to personalize the entire experience from beginning to end.

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


I have nothing bad to say about the Ensley group; they were professional, friendly, on time, and very knowledgeable (the manager, receptionists, and clinicians).  From beginning to end of my invisalign treatment everything went as expected.  I was hesitant at the beginning but am so happy I did it (I am 68).  Not only do I like the way my teeth appear now but eating a sandwich is much easier since my teeth are much better aligned.  I am grateful for everything they did for my teeth.  I would recommend them without hesitation.  Thanks Ensley Group!!

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


I have nothing bad to see! The staff is absolutely amazing. They are quick to get you in, super friendly, and they walk you through everything they do. I came in for a Invisalign consultation but ended up with a faster and cheaper alternative. I love the results and would highly recommend Ensley Orthodontics!

Rena J. from Honolulu, HI (Source: Yelp)


I just moved here from Hawaii and needed to continue orthodontic treatment. All I can say is I definitely chose the right office! Staff was amazing and Dr. Ensley is personable and has obvious expertise. He was genuinely interested in helping go with the least expensive option for me which I really appreciated after a big move.   The office is amazing and beautiful with lots of different things to do while you wait (which wasn’t long at all). I’m looking forward to my next visit

Highly recommend Ensley Ortho to anybody. They have a very simple premise: deliver exactly what they say they will, for the price quoted and complete it right on schedule. This place is a well-oiled machine that just happens to churn out nice smiles. My daughter had a pretty gnarly set of choppers. After our consultation, Dr. Ensley told us 2 years….and by god, it was almost 2 years to the day and she has a perfect smile now. Frankly, I had my doubts they could do it in that time frame and I wound up eating crow on that one. Anyways, from receptionists to the office staff to the techs, right up to Dr. Ensley himself, this place is professional, friendly and very good at what they do. Do yourself a favor and make sure you visit them if braces are in your future.

We absolutely love Dr. Ensley and his amazing team! We have been seeing him for several years now. Their office is modern and fun with always fun events going one. You can play video games or guess how many items are in the jar. Patients earn tickets for which they can turn in for prizes. My son loves going here. The care is what I appreciate the most as the mom. It is exceptional and any time we had any problems they fit us into the schedule, no problem! They were gracious to work with us on financing. I would recommend Ensley Orthodontics to anyone!

Christl R. from Beaverton, OR (Source: Yelp)


After just having our first consultation for our 9 year old son, we are walking away confident, calm, and hopeful about his treatment plan for several dental issues. This entire office space and the staff is warm, friendly, personal, respectful, and professional. Definitely child friendly (the waiting areas as well as the staff interactions). They were very informative and clear about what our son needed. I never felt a hard pressure sale for their services and although is it an option to wait on treatment, that is not what we want. My son walked out saying, “I’m looking forward to braces.”

Sarah C. from Beaverton, OR (Source: Yelp)


Over the past fourteen years, we have stayed with Dr. Ensley for all the orthodontic treatment needed in our family, including myself (getting braces a second time as an adult) and all three of our kids. We recommend him highly to anyone seeking orthodontic treatment at any age. Our youngest child had a very complicated and lengthy treatment plan, with tooth extractions and special appliances needed.  Ensley was thorough and communicative every step of the way, and he provided lots of incentives for all our kids to stick with their treatment plans.  We are delighted with the results.  Ensley and his office staff are very professional, honest, friendly, and encouraging.  They went out of their way to make the whole experience as convenient and pleasant as possible for all of us.

Get your braces here!!!! Seriously though this was the best experience I have ever had with a dentist/ orthodontist and my mom is a dental assistant so I grew up in dental offices. The staff is amazing from the techs to accounting and reception it makes every visit very comfortable and inviting. Dr Ensley definitely knows what he is doing and makes sure every smile that comes through his chairs is perfect. Thank you Ensley team for my amazing new smile!!

Wayne Garcia (Source: Facebook)


his staff there at the office. I could talk about the coffee and things they have in the lobby to keep you occupied but instead, I will focus on the most important part, Dr. Ensley and his abilities. My daughter had a very complicated case. Two other orthodontists recommended pulling four of her permanent teeth to make room for all her teeth coming in. But Dr. Ensley looked at the xrays, did an exam and said he could make them fit and though it would take longer, we’d be happy. Well last month came the time for my daughter to get her braces removed and Dr. Ensley was right. She has a gorgeous smile and was able to keep all of her permanent teeth. I happen to think Dr. Ensley is very talented and he’s a confident and patient guy. There is a difference in these folks and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him. We were very happy with the results.

This is a bit long, so sit down and grab some popcorn (you won’t be able to eat it for a while once you get your braces, so make it a double helping). I’m an adult who has spent my entire adulthood thinking about getting braces, and at 40, I finally did. If details bore you, here’s all you really need to know: the end result of my treatment by Dr. Ensley so far surpassed my expectations that I’m not certain there wasn’t actually some form of magic involved. My total treatment took less time than was originally forecasted, and was as comfortable as you can expect wearing brackets and wires on your teeth to be. Once the braces were removed, Dr. Ensley smoothed the tops of my teeth out, and the total of my whole treatment has resulted in a smile that is so far beyond what I ever imagined. The entire staff, both technical and office, is smart, warm, genuine, and kind. I immediately felt welcomed as a human being and not just a transaction. My visits have all been so pleasant and I have genuinely looked forward to seeing them. Truly Grade A human beings whom I will miss seeing regularly. It’s also worth noting that a couple of years prior to my treatment, my adult brother with special needs had braces. He LOVED Dr. Ensley and the staff, and my mom who took him for his treatment, raves about how kindly, compassionately, and well, NORMALLY everyone treated him. If you have someone in your life with special needs, unfortunately you know this isn’t always the case. Listen, normally I’m a comparison shopper too, but seriously save yourself the time and just go see Dr. Ensley and his talented staff!

Dr. Ensley is absolutely amazing. I actually went to see him due to some issues that were created from mail order retainers I signed up for that I was having issues getting good support from the mail order company. He provided a limited exam to provide feedback on my current situation and give me some options. His recommendations were considerate of my investment already made and I feel confident we was acting in my best interest rather than in the interest of his profit.

Christy Powers (Source: Google)


Dr. Ensley went above-and-beyond to help me have my dream smile. I think he’s a genius architect at creating aligned smiles. I’m so grateful for Dr. Ensley and staff’s skillful work and attention to the most nauced details! Dr. Ensley and office provided the outcomes I was hoping for as well as an overall excellent experience with open communication. *Also, when I went to get my final Invisalign trays last week, they seemed to be following ALL COVID-19 guidelines, so the experience also felt safe from a health perspective.

Dr Ensley was highly recommended to us so we drive from Camas, WA for our 13 year-old to get braces. He recognized quickly that our daughter had a tongue thrust issue so referred us to Barbara Erskine for therapy on her swallow/retaining her tongue so it stops pushing against her front teeth. Dr. Ensley didn’t want us to invest in all the braces and overbite services to have the work ruined by the tongue thrust. He definitely looks at the long-game and doesn’t want to waste our money. We’re now only a few months from unveiling her smile and removing the braces. This team has been a great experience for us. Very friendly, professional and focused. We highly recommend them. B-T-W, our daughter thinks Dr. Ensley is funny and , “super cool”.

Ensley does a good job of making what is not a fun experience (braces!) and makes it more fun, relaxing and motivating to comply with good habits. They make it as pleasant as possible for kids and parents, alike. Its a fun little office to go to. My son’s orthodontic work helped him to overcome a speech impediment as well as improving the appearance of his teeth. I appreciated that I did not feel like I was being “unsold” to all the time and they did exactly what was necessary, no more. The price was all-inclusive and this was spelled out clearly at the get go. The office staff is very organized, professional and pleasant to work with. We actually shopped around a bit at first and I am glad we picked Ensley. I would recommend this office to others.
