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

I became a patient of Dr. Geelan’s when he took over the practice of my previous dentist.  I was of course concerned that we would have as good a relationship as I had had with my previous dentist, but Dr. Geelan got a very positive review from my prior dentist, so I stayed there.  I’m happy that I did.  Dr. Geelan is pleasant, professional and thorough.  I am pleased with the care I receive, and the explanations that Dr. Geelan gives me when he needs to replace a filling or an onlay.  As others have said, he takes the time to let you know what he wants to do and why he thinks it’s important to proceed as he does.  The support staff are all knowledgeable and pleasant, and they do their jobs in a very workmanlike manner.  Everyone does their best to make sure you’re comfortable and as pain free as possible.  A very good dentist, and one I would recommend to anyone.

Dr. Geelan is the best dentist ever!! He never asks you questions you can’t answer when he has his hand in your mouth and has you use thumbs up or down for yes or no questions when he does need to ask a question when he has his hand in your open mouth. Super nice dental assistants to!!

I have been going to Geelan Dental Care a little under 1 year. When I got there, my teeth were not as “loved” as they should be. Dr. Geelan and his awesome staff helped me get my teeth back to healthy and provide me with all the knowledge and tools I need to keep them that way! Dr. Geelan takes the time to go over his (and your) concerns and will even explain what is going on in the room while he is working. Additionally, Janeen is also a wonderful Hygienists. She is very personable and you can tell she really cares about doing a great job. Kim is also very friendly and is a lot of help when it comes to explaining the charges and setting up my next appointment. One final thing – they validate parking so no worries if you don’t already work downtown.

36 minutes in the chair for 2 small fillings is outstanding and that included time to chat at the beginning. Dr Geelan is always pleasant and easy going. His office worked with me to maximize my plan benefits over a couple of years. He is the third dentist I’ve had in my life and easily the best. Always soliciting feedback about my comfort. Aside from the small pinch of a shot, no pain. I’ve never experienced residual pain after any treatment.

I have found Dr. Geelan competent, thorough, gentle, and caring.  He has put in 2 crowns for me, one plastic (or whatever it is) and one gold.  Both have been a perfect fit from minute one.  He has patiently discussed options and let me choose the path we took.  And he made sure he discovered the hidden pocket of decay before he sealed it up.  The whole staff is very friendly and accomodating.  They all go out of their way to make it a pleasant experience.

I found Geelan Dental Care to be outstanding. I am VERY pleased. Dr. Geelan and staff are friendly and down to earth. Dr. Geelan is quite experienced and, I thought, very thorough. I appreciated the fact that he took his time with me, was not in a hurry. Made me feel as though I were his only patient. I also appreciated how he explained what he was doing and why. He answered a lot of questions (in detail) and was very thorough in explaining. And again, he was not in a hurry to move on quickly to the next patient. I also appreciated that Geelan Dental Care is more affordable and much more reasonably priced than my previous dentist. This makes it possible to have more frequent check-ups and visits. I have only the best things to say about my experience with Dr. Geelan and his staff. I highly recommend Geelan Dental Care.

Best service and dental work I have ever had. Dr. Geelan takes his time with you and explains all procedures with you in detail. I have had two crowns and one implant with Dr. Geelan and they look fantastic !!! He takes the time to get the color just right. You cannot tell these are not my natural teeth. I have recommended him to friends and clients of mine and will continue to do so as he is the best dentist I have ever been to. He is kind, gentle and a perfectionist. Can I say more?

I’ve been going here for 30 years and have always been treated very well by everyone. They are always willing to explain what I need to do to help my teeth, and are willing to work with my crazy schedule. When I tell people I have a dentist appointment most react with ugh, you have to go to the dentist? But I’ve honestly never minded because they treat me like family.

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


Dr. Geelan is the BEST!! I love that he actually wants what’s best for you, not just what would cost the most to do. He is open to creating a long- term “life” plan that prioritizes what you need to have done first and then goes from there. I wasn’t sure about him replacing my retired dentist whom I loved, but I feel like my old dentist made sure I was in good hands. Dr. Geelan is the bomb!! 🙂

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


My recommendation for Dr. Geelan and his team is sincere and it is without reservation.  I came back to the dentist after a lapse in treatment and did have issues. The process of getting things back in order was laid out in a straight forward manner and progress was made with very minimal discomfort.  I was very pleased.  I have found Dr. Geelan and his team to be first class in every regard.  I believe I found my dentist for life.  Highest rating!

Linda Chalmers (Source: Google)


Dr Geelan and assistant very considerate about comfort and planning for work that needed to be done. I can’t express enough praise for them. I’ve been to many dentists in my life, he is the best. Complete explanations and communication prior to and during dental work! Hard to find! Great team!

Julia S. from Camas, WA (Source: Yelp)


Best dental experience I’ve had. I’ve had several dentists in my 25 years of life and this place has already out done itself in the short time I’ve been a patient here. Always heard good things about them but I can now vouch for all those good things! The sweetest thing was, I mentioned I was pregnant and they sent us a congratulations card in the mail, so sweet! That’s above and beyond customer service.

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


Dr. Geelan, Does a great job explaining what he is going to do for you and warns you when he is going to give you a shot and tells you that will sting. I have been a patient of Dr. Canfields for a long time. Dr. Geelan goes into detail what is the best plan for your teeth. I can tell that he truly cares for his patients.

Dr. Geelan,  are all the most professional, friendliest people you could hope for. Now that I’m a senior citizen, and on Fosomax, I feel truly safe in having Dr. Geelan take care of my teeth so I will have them all for the rest of my life. I truly look forward to my visits/appointments with them.

Dr Geelan has a wonderful practice with a great staff, very friendly and welcoming. We have small children and I am really impressed with the preventative care they focus on to keep growing smiles healthy!!! Also, the location is convenient for my husband who works downtown and is short on time. Only a block from a SmartPark garage and they validate parking.

Jan M. from Tualatin, OR (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Aron Geelan is an excellent dentist. He and his entire staff make my dental experience pleasant. Everyone in the office is very friendly and helpful. The office sends appointment schedules through email that can be saved to your calendar. The location has easy access downtown and parking is validated. Dr. Geelan’s professionalism and expertise make me feel very comfortable through my entire appointment. Both Dr. Geelan and his dental hygienists are very knowledgable in their respective fields and take the time to educate and discuss your needs. They use the latest technology and equipment and and consistently looking looking to keep abreast of new information relevant to their practice. I am very happy with my dental work and smile. I am highly confident in recommending Dr. Geelan to others.

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


Thank you, Dr Geelan for making my dental experience so smooth.  From making my appointment to sitting in the chair,  the attention to service and comfort was clearly in the forefront.  I know you cant take my anxiety or pain completely away in a dental procedure but the service I received made me the experience more than manageable.  I will surely spread the word to friends and family.

ANOTHER EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE!!! Today is my first anniversary as a patient of Dr. Geelan’s and I could not be more pleased with my experience. Recently, however, I had been apprehensive about getting treatment, due to the pandemic. Nevertheless, I visited for a long over due cleaning. To my relief, the office environment did not disappoint, with all appropriate measures to guarantee safety having been observed. As a result, i was immediately at ease and the cleaning went off without a hitch. Bottom line, my teeth feel great and i anticipate future anniversaries within the care of the Geelan Dental Team!

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


Dr. Geelan is superb. I had two crown replacements and the experience was fast, pain free and professional – and not only to the crowns look great, but they feel perfect. Also, Dr. Geelan’s staff is super positive, professional and kind. In addition, what is unique about Dr. Geelan is that not only does he take time to fully answer your questions and explain what he is doing. I’ve been with Dr. Geelan since he opened his Portland office and I’m glad I found him.

John M. Kurz (Source: Google)


I went in to see Dr Geelan for a random stinging pain in my tooth this week. They were able to get me in quickly and the dentist was great. I enjoyed my time in the office, they explained things well, listened to my concerns and gave his advice on what to do. I have already recommended this dentist to coworkers and would tell anyone who needs a dentist to give this office a shot. Very friendly and helpful.

I recently decided to change dental offices and was referred to Geelan dental by a friend. Im very happy I did! The hygienist was amazing and my teeth have never felt cleaner. Being a busy guy I appreciated how efficient the appointment was from start to finish. I will gladly be back in six months for my next cleaning. Highly recommended

Laura A. from Portland, OR (Source: Yelp)


I can’t praise Dr. Geelan and his staff enough. We just moved to Portland three days ago and the night before we got here, my husband came down with an abscessed/infected root canal. Worst pain of his life! He got sick on a Friday night so we weren’t able to contact Dr. Geelan’s office until Monday. A friend of a friend referred us to his office. Geelan Dental got my husband in ASAP and sat with us and explained all our options in a friendly and kind way. I felt like family. We decided to get treatment in a few more days. Later that night (around midnight), we ended up having to contact Dr. Geelan on his cell phone because of the increasing pain and he got my husband in the next morning, before they were even open, to perform an emergency extraction. Plus, he was willing to meet us at the office in the middle of the night if we needed him but we waited until the morning. I’ve dealt with dentists all over the country and Dr. Geelan’s crew can be trusted 100%. I’m so thankful we found them and we’re happy to say we’ve found our dentist in PDX. Seriously cannot thank these guys enough. Plus, we never felt cheated or like we were being taken advantage of financial in any way. The receptionists are also the sweetest. Quit your dental search. You’ve found the right place.

I have been a long time patient of Dr. . I was sad to see him retire (although he still shows up to the office!) Dr.  is not only a talented dentist but also a humanitarian. In the late 60’s he worked at the Black Panther Dental Clinic in N Portland and continues to does charitable work with relief organizations to Cambodia and other countries. Dr. Geelan has done a great job of treating his patients with the same quality care and attention to detail. I have referred many friends and family over the years and I would highly recommend him!

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


Dr. Geelan and his staff are always friendly and helpful, and take their time to do an excellent job. My teeth always look and feel exceptionally clean when I leave, and I feel very confident that the health of my smile is in good hands. Out of the five dentists I’ve had in my life, this is by far my favorite. I started going to this practice in 2010 when it was headed by Dr. Canfield, who has since retired. Dr. Canfield and his excellent and knowledgeable hygienists always did a great job for me, including saving my tooth when another dentist was telling me I needed a root canal and crown. That filling is still doing just fine, and I am SOOO glad I came here for a second opinion…I just wish I’d come here first! Since taking over the practice, Dr. Geelan has maintained the great service I have come to expect. The same excellent hygienists are still providing extremely thorough cleanings, and he continues the legacy of providing thoughtful, individualized service. He always does a good job of informing me of everything that he sees and does in my mouth. He clearly describes treatment options so I can make informed decisions, and is never pushy. They are also very conscious of the costs of services, and clearly discuss these as well. My trust in Dr. Geelan was further boosted last summer when one of my wisdom teeth became infected. He could have removed it himself and collected the payment, but he instead referred me to an oral surgeon, since the nerve was a little close to the root. This is a practice that will really take care of you, with the goal of having you as a life-long patient. In my opinion, you can’t ask for anything more.

Great office with wonderful staff. Everyone takes their time to really sit down with you and explain why and how things are being done. Was apparently short staffed the day that I went but I would have never been able to tell. Would recommend Geelan Dental to anybody! Thanks for the great service. See you in 6 months!

Melissa Cikara (Source: Google)


Everyone is so friendly and they take extra steps to make sure your visit is as comfortable as possible. I had a filling done here and when it was painful, Dr. Geelan stopped to make sure he could numb up the spot even more before doing more work. I’ve always felt like you just have to suck it up and deal with discomfort and pain when going to the dentist, but they truly do what they can at Geelan Dental Care to ensure it’s just not that way!

It can be difficult to find a good dentist that you can trust and feel comfortable with. I have been with Dr. Geelan since he started his practice and I couldn’t be happier. His care and thoroughness exceed expectations. I feel comfortable with his advice. He takes the time and care to explain everything. I have been to a number of dentists over the years, and Dr. Geelan is by far my favorite. The staff in Dr. Geelan’s office is wonderful. I have had a chance to work with all of them at some point, and have always appreciated their care, concern and friendliness. They are all very good at what they do! Janine and Oma are super friendly and great hygienists. I like both of them. And if you end up needing some dental work, Melanie and Pam are both great and make sure everything goes smoothly and that you are comfortable. Kimberly is their office manager and she is there to greet you when you arrive and help with any questions before you leave. From the moment you walk in the door until you leave, you are well taken care of with this group. I highly recommend Geelan Dental!

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


Nobody likes to go to the dentist but it must be done unless you want your teeth to fall out. That being said, if you must go to the dentist, why not go someplace where you will receive quality care in a professional and caring environment? Dr. Geelan and his staff fit the bill. I was very pleased with the care I received and I will be going back for my regular cleaning. Plus if you work downtown, the location couldn’t be any more convenient. Don’t let your teeth fall out. Go see Dr. Geelan!

I thought I would get a second opinion on some dental work I needed done ! I have a good dentist already , but decided I would see if I could see if I had other choices. I was explained a few options , but was advised that they were really not advised as the best for me . I also was scared to death on having the dental work done . Dr Geelan explained everything to me where I could understand exactly what I would be expecting , I was put at ease and felt confident I would have him do my dental work ! I will be recommending dr Geelan to everyone I know looking for a dentist ! Thank you

I think very highly of the service provided by Dr Geelan and the staff there, especially Janine. My children, ages, 7 & 3, have been going there from the start of their care and Janine has a beautiful and respectful way of working with them. She has so earned their respect that I see them practice the brushing techniques she teaches them long after their check ups!

I am very pleased to leave an incredible review for Geelan Dental. I have visited Dr. Geelan and his staff many times over the years. They are easy to find, downtown on the corner of SW 2nd & Main – 2nd floor. Very each to reach. More importantly, Dr. Geelan, in my experience, is not only highly proficient — my dental work has always been of the highest quality, but he is very patient with me, as well. He carefully listens to my questions, then thoroughly answers each of them. He is never in a hurry. He makes me feel as though I am his only patient in the world (though clearly I am not). He has a great deal of integrity — performing dental work not just to get the job accomplished — but by going the extra mile and extra step every time to ensure he’s done a 125% high-quality job. That I appreciate. This is how he works daily — unlike a few other dentists who would normally charge additional fees to go the extra mile, Dr. Geelan simply performs exceptional work every time. He is always looking at the overall health of my teeth, the big picture, not just at the one reason for my appointment. I appreciate being able to plan ahead and to have an idea of what to expect with my teeth in the future. Did I mention he was very patient? He and his staff are very personable and down to earth. I never feel that I’m being treated “too professionally” to the point of it’s strictly a “patient — doctor relationship.” Dr. Geelan talks with me like a real person, person-to-person about my teeth, not hiding behind a “too professional” medical demeanor. I appreciate that. as well. I highly recommend Geelan Dental Care to anyone looking for high quality, great care — and great people. I’m in great hands.
