I cannot recommend this office enough! My kids have seen two dentist prior to coming to their office and they’ve never been this excited to go back for follow ups due to the personable staff and welcoming environment. I had braces put on my two boys there as well. Dr. Fox is very thorough with explaining the process with both the patient and the parents. I couldn’t be more satisfied, I’d recommend their office to anyone who is looking for a office that takes the patients needs.

Dr. Fox is an OG – original gangster. I have had no complaints and would highly recommend if you need braces. Flexible scheduling and financing which is great and I’ve just had a really smooth time with my braces. Really professional and was very clear what my options were. The office is nice and has a great view. Also has a great selection of Pixar films for when you’re getting your teeth worked on.

I can not say enough good things about this office. My 7 year old twins aren’t in love with going to the dentist; however they always leave their dental check ups feeling happy. Dr. Fox and her staff are also wonderful working with children who are on the autism spectrum and have techniques to make the visit as low stress as possible. I highly recommend Dr. Fox and her amazing staff!

I can not recommend this orthodontist/dentist enough! My daughter’s expander broke whilst we were on holidays in Portland (day before NYE in a city we didn’t know) and the Dr Paul Fox fitted us in within the hour! The service, information, assurances, and advice we received from Dr Fox and his associates was second to none and both my daughter and I were blown away by how efficient and personable the team were. He went above and beyond, even contacting our usual orthodontist to let them know what had happened and treatment given. I would highly recommend their services to anyone looking for a pediatric orthodontist. Thank you again guys! So sad we don’t live in Portland so we can have you as our orthodontic/dental team!

Everyone at Fox Kids Dentistry is awesome! We never have to wait long when we get there, even if we’re early. All the staff are really nice and respectful to the kids. I started my oldest who was 8 there because other dentist couldn’t get an x-ray with those huge things that they try to force him to bite down on. Fox specializes in kids and so they are more prepared for those kinds of situations. Very informative on what’s going on and what the next steps are. It’s downtown, but you can park at the recommended smart park and get validation too. No need to drive around and around looking for parking on the streets. I recommend Fox Kids Dentistry to anyone who is looking for a dentist for your children, you will not be disappointed with their service.

Dr. Fox explains exactly what is going on and includes you in the process, she is competent and down to Earth. My 9 year old sang her praises all night, it’s pretty significant when the TV on the ceiling is your child’s second favorite thing, after her Dentist. And thanks Dr. Fox for the easy tooth extraction for my 14 year old! She was comforted by your warm demeanor and quickness with the procedure.

We love this office and Dr. Fox is amazing. She is great with the kids and very helpful and informative with us parents who truly seek guidance for these appointments. She also engages the kids to be proud and motivated in taking care of their teeth. Both my boys left the office gloating and happy. This is a great practice!

My two children been going here for a while and now my other two are going. They love going to the dentist I also like how they great with kids and know that they can’t sit long and works with kids and parents

There are so many good things I can say about Fox dentistry and orthodontics! First I love that when I walk in the door my family feels welcome, we are able to schedule all three of my kids (ages 2.5 twins and 4.5) all on the same day in the same block the staff is amazing about us “taking over” the lobby for a while. Second it’s never a surprise what the team is doing, they explain everything to the kids and put it in terms the kids understand! My kids always walk out of the dentist happy and never scared, they go at the kids pace and if the child needs a break it’s ok!!!!! Three the staff always explains to me what is going to happen and asks me what is easy for me! There is no judgement that I don’t get to flossing my kids teeth every single night! I recommend this dentist often and drive 60 miles one way to see this dentist because they make my kids love the dentist!!!!!

Before coming here my daughter used to have extreme anxiety with dentists. We found this place a few years ago and all 4 of my girls now enjoy coming here. The dentist is so amazing and friendly. My daughter’s haven’t ever had a negative experience here. We travel quite a ways to come to Fox Dental but it’s absolutely worth it. We love everyone here.

We always get the best care at this Dentistry when my 3 sons have their regular checkups performed by Dr. Fox! And It was no different this time, as She discovered my son Dario needed room for a new permanent tooth. Needless to say, she anticipated the possible problems and made the necessary moves to provide my son, the best possible smile! Thank You Team Fox, Sincerely, Billy Wong

Yesterday was a big milestone in my sons life. He had his first dentist appointment! I wasn’t expecting much, but tons of tears, however Dr. Dana Fox and staff were so friendly and welcoming hardly any tears were shed. I love their approach on let them explore and get use to the new area before diving in. When it was time for the exam it was quick and painless for my 1.5 year old (ie he didn’t scream bloody murder lol).Dr. Fox also told me great tips and techniques on how making brushing at home easier. I look forward to our next visit in 6 months. Thank you for making it a pleasant and memorable experience. I would definitely recommend.

Love this office! My 6 year old gets excited to go to the dentist now! The staff is always super friendly. I have 3 children; 6, 12 & 15 and this is the 4th office we’ve switched to and the last. Been here for years now and I would highly recommend them to anyone with kids. It’s exciting for the kids to go downtown and so worth the drive for us (only twice a year).

Nicole M. from Happy Valley, OR (Source: Yelp)


My daughter has always had a great experience here. The staff help us feel comfortable and calm. She enjoys the motivational tools they have. I appreciate how they always explain billing and are great at communicating. Friendly staff, great with the kids. Even when we moved another 30 minutes away we still will make the nearly hour drive to come here because they have been so great!

Reviewing as an ADULT getting INVISALIGN…Dr Fox, Leslie, and the entire team have been wonderful through my treatment over the past year. They have always been optimistic, professional, and customer service centric. I also appreciated the honesty and multiple viewpoints on treatment options. I would highly recommend Dr Fox.

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


Dr. Fox is excellent with my kids. Their office is state of the art with television on the ceiling for those beloved fillings and procedures that kids are so fond of. Dana has given my family extra attention when my son had a tooth trauma including her personal phone number. The front office is thorough and professional. The hygienists are personable and have a soft touch and easy way with kids. This office is top notch.

I absolutely LOVE this place!! They always tell my kiddo what to expect with his cleanings and involve him in the process. Everyone there is so nice, friendly and accommodating! Dr. Fox makes sure all of my questions are answered and her staff always makes sure we feel welcome. Thank you all so so much for all you do!

I cannot say enough how wonderful this office is!!! We have been long time patients and have never been disappointed. They are quick and efficient. Yet have a warm, friendly family atmosphere. The staff is wonderful and the techs do great work! My kids love this dentist office! We considered changing to a closer dentist (we drive 40 min one way) but we just can’t leave! I highly recommend this office to anyone!

We absolutely love the Fox team! Every time we take our babies-turning-toddlers in, they are kind and welcoming and not in a rush. We never feel like we are being rushed through our appointment; we feel like people. The Fox team has given us tips and tools to brush our two wiggly one year olds teeth. The view from their office is AMAZING. Everyone is kind. Highly recommend.

My kids have been coming here for a few years now (previously with Dr. Royse) and always had a good experience with run-of-the mill check ups. Over the Thanksgiving week, my son developed tooth pain with some associated gum swelling. I initially corresponded with Dr. Fox by showing her photos via email and we both decided his pain was manageable and we could watch and see how he did. Unfortunately on Thanksgiving day, my son’s face got very swollen over the span of a few hours, which was very worrisome to me. My husband and I anticipated having to take my son to the ED that night, but fortunately Dr. Fox not only returned my call on Thanksgiving night, she offered to open up her office that night to take a look at my son. We mutually decided to start antibiotics and hold off until the morning to come in. We stayed in text contact all through the next day, and she accommodated my husband’s and my work schedule so we could bring him in to clinic the next day. The office was still closed (Friday after Thanksgiving) and Dr. Fox was about to leave on vacation with her family, but she made a special trip in and opened up the office herself to remove my son’s infected tooth. She then followed up with several more calls and texts to make sure he was doing ok, and subsequent visits to check up on his infection site and put in a spacer. My husband and I are both doctors ourselves and we were extremely impressed at Dr. Fox’s dedication and vigilance and overall have had an excellent experience at her office.

Really happy with our experience at Fox Kids Dentistry. The staff knows how to relate to kids and the kids look forward to their visits (!!). Better yet, the staff also knows how to relate to parents – checking dental insurance coverage on my behalf, answering questions clearly and precisely, sending reminders for check-ups, reminding me to get parking validation as I am leaving etc. It is so nice to have something like a dentist’s visit with three kids go off without a hitch!

Lyndsay Christensen (Source: Facebook)


Great office – staff is helpful and friendly. The decor is peaceful and clean. Dr. Fox is gentle and great with kids (love that she describes everything in terms they can understand). They don’t suggest things your kid(s) don’t need. We originally went to Dr. Royce and loved him and now look forward to seeing Dr. Fox a couple times year. We are very pleased.

Dr. Fox and her team are exceptional–they’ve created an office environment that makes my daughter feel welcome and comfortable, with just enough fun and excitement thrown into the mix so that my kiddo remembers the experience and becomes enthused about going back. I feel incredibly fortunate that my daughter has the opportunity to benefit from Dr. Fox’s gentle approach and clear expertise. From the start to finish of every appointment, Dr. Fox and her team have been fantastic!

Eveyone at Fox Kids Dental is amazing. They have made our orthodontic and dental experience comfortable and easy. No need to be scared or worried. TV on the ceiling; favorite movies in the lobby; welcoming smiles when you arrive; tokens for prizes at the end of your visit; and validated parking! We look forward to our next visit to Fox Dental! Thank you!❤

Dr. Fox has been a blessing. My 9 year old son was terrified of going to the dentist. He would cry and scream and has been known to get sick at the dentist. Dr. Fox has such a gentle and patient manner, my son has been so much better at his dentist appointments ever since seeing her. No more freaking out. Dr. Fox is very knowledgeable and does a great job explaining things in a way that boy my kids and I can understand. I would highly recommend Dr. Fox to any family looking for a pediatric dentist.


At Fox Kids Dentistry & Orthodontics, we strive to make an ordinary dental visit into an extraordinary experience that is hard to find anywhere else. We believe in treating our patients and their families with compassion and quality care. We are a combined Pediatric Dental and Orthodontic practice. We strive to make it convenient for our patients and their families to get more comprehensive, uninterrupted, total dental care under the continuous evaluation from both our Pediatric Dentist and Orthodontist. This means no more driving all over town to different offices. Our doctors can more easily work together to coordinate care for your child, and that means more free time for you. Dr. Paul Fox was born and raised in Portland and attended Jesuit High School. He proceeded to go to college at Portland State University and went on to dental school at Oregon Health & Science University where he earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree. Ready for an adventure to a different part of the country, he pursued his specialty training in Orthodontics at the Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia, PA. Upon graduation, he worked as an orthodontist in a private practice in Philadelphia before making another big move to Anchorage, AK. After spending two winters watching the moose and brown bears roam around outside of his orthodontic clinic, he decided it was time to move back home to Portland. Dr. Fox enjoys watching all sports but when he roots, he roots for the Timbers! Because of his time spent in Philly, he also became a big fan of the Eagles and Phillies. His favorite 80s movies are the Back to the Future trilogy, the Indiana Jones trilogy and the original Karate Kid. His favorite TV show growing up was Double Dare, mainly because the physical challenges were the best, and his favorite video game of all time was James Bond Golden Eye for the Nintendo 64. In his free time Dr. Fox enjoys outdoor activities such as skiing at Mt Hood, fishing and razor clamming at the Oregon coast and hiking around the Gorge. He thinks nachos are the perfect accompaniment to sporting events. Dr. Fox is a family man and loves spending time with his wife (Dr. Dana Fox) and their two young children. Dr. Fox is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, and a member to the following organizations: College of Diplomats of the American Board of Orthodontics, American Association of Orthodontists, Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists, American Dental Association, and Oregon Dental Association. He also once owned a Members Only jacket.
