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

Luckyone K. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


My phobia of dentistry is real. Dr Kooning and his assistant were the cure to my fears! He explained everything in detail. Made me comfortable with the dental plan. To top it off, I had a procedure without anxiety, pain, or concern. I even left with a smile. My plan takes several months to complete (yeah for implants!) and I’m looking forward to my next visit. Thank you Kooning family dentistry team. You do not have to live with broken teeth!

Always a great experience at Kooning. I’m especially thankful for Guillermo, who is kind, patient, thorough, and careful every cleaning to make sure I’m comfortable. I also appreciate that the staff makes sure to check my insurance benefits before x-rays etc. without me even asking, so there are no surprises. Thanks, team!

Dr.Kooning is the best!  He’s one of those dentists that can make you feel at ease instantaneously upon meeting him.  He’s efficient, does not do unnecessary work-even if that meant more money in his pocket.  He is 100% about YOUR needs and nothing else.  Honest, talented and respectful is how I would describe him.  Impeccable professionalism!

Anna B. from Manhattan Beach, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


This Dentist office is top notch! The staff are warm and welcoming. As soon as I walked in I was welcomed into the office. When I sat down to start my appointment the staff made sure I was comfortable. The office uses top of the line technology and seems to be on the cutting edge of dentistry, at least compared to my prior experiences. Dr Kooning is kind and compassionate and made sure to take the time to allow me to understand my treatment plan in a way I understood.

Everything about this experience was positive from the clean and welcoming waiting area to the attentive, friendly and courteous staff to the competence ad professionalism of the hygienist and Dr Kooning himself. The “whats” and “whys” of both procedures being done during this visit and restorative procedures recommended were clearly explained. Also welcome was the absence of what I would characterize as “oversell”, that is a hyper aggressive pitch to project every dental imperfection into some kind of potential future catastrophe unless some major restorative procedure was done within a few days. No, none of that here. The two recommended restorative procedures, one of which I am having done next week, both seem necessary and the rationale for doing each was clearly explained by Dr Kooning and supported by visual x-ray evidence that even a lay person could understand.

Dr Kooning and his team are exceptionally professional and are very much aware of my fear of dentist but they put my mind and fears at ease when I relocated and needed to find a new dentist. This really is an amazing group here. And I’ve had to have some work done and I don’t have those fears anymore. They walk me through the procedure and even hold my hand ha ha and I’m in my 50s so it’s taken me this long to finally feel comfortable going. That’s why I wanted to take the time to put five stars on yelp

This is a great office if you are looking for a highly competent dentist and a wonderful staff.  It’s so important to feel comfortable while in the chair and this office just puts you at ease.  They have all the high tech goodies, yet have also mastered good, old fashioned customer service.  Even better – no upselling.  If Dr.  Kooning says you need it done – you do.

My family has been with Dr. Kooning Family Dentistry since the beginning of the practice. Even though we haven’t lived in Lake Oswego the past 5 years we still go back because we love the service. The professionals at the clinic really care about their patients. From appointment setting to dental care the process is easy and friendly. Yesterday was my 2x yearly cleaning and I also had x-rays done. Guillermo was professional and friendly. The whole staff was following state and CDC guidelines to the T. I felt safe through the whole visit. Thanks again Dr. Kooning for a great visit

This is a wonderful practice I was fortunate enough to discover in LO. Dr. Kooning, through his clear communication, and empathy, and great technical work, earn my highest recommendation. Additionally, I was very impressed by my cleaning as the dental hygienist’s attention to detail and time spent was truly exceptional. During a follow up and crown placement, Dr. Kooning’s team assured that I was comfortable, and they made every effort to communicate clearly. I highly recommend Dr. Kooning and his practice for its excellent support staff as well as his dental technicians and hygienists.

Gary L. from Lake Oswego, OR (Source: Yelp)


The staff is the real gem. Everyone cares, they are pros, work well together and are at the top of their game. They service adults and children and provide a host of services including leading edge orthodontics. They return calls and take care of the insurance. A five star team. I highly recommend Dr Kooning and his marvelous staff. Take care of your teeth and make an appointment today. I did!

Zachary V. from Happy Valley, OR (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kooning is the rare honest dentist. I live in SF but I come to Oregon to get my dental work. Why? Because Kooning only does the minimal work necessary. For example, other dentists that I went to would not fill in the pot-holes on my molars, aka “facets”. I was told by my other dentists that it would have to be a full blown filling. Kooning was the first dentist that said that filling them in was super easy and that it wouldn’t even require local anesthetic. WOW. Considering that my most recent cavity was caused by one of these facets eroding away and then converting into a cavity, this treatment by Dr Kooning has eliminated the cavities from forming in these areas. I highly recommend that if you have facets (aka potholes) in your teeth then come to this dentist and let him fix them for cheap so that they don’t fork cavities. Thanks, Dr Kooning!!

Dr. Kooning and his entire team, Tawnie, Dental Assistant, Lindsay, Dental Hygienist, and Becky, Administrative Assistant, have always been efficient, helpful, knowledgeable, kind and compassionate. Dr. Kooning offers ask available levels of treatment and will suggest the least invasive first. Dr. Kooning respects his patients concerns and honors their choices. In my past, I’ve had very stressful times in the dentist. I am much more comfortable in the dental chair with Dr. Kooning and his team! My care has been wonderful and I’m very grateful!

Jordan M. from Lake Oswego, OR (Source: Yelp)


Everyone at Dr. Kooning’s office was so warm and welcoming. I have anxiety about getting my teeth worked on and they calmed my nerves and made sure I was super comfortable the whole time. I’ve never had such a thorough cleaning and my teeth have never felt better. I would recommend them to anyone wanting a wonderful experience at the dentist. I will be bringing my entire family back!

Tim S. from Lake Oswego, OR (Source: Yelp)


I just met Dr. Kooning this afternoon.  He bought the practice from my previous dentist, and I am happy to say the standard of care has not changed. His hygienists are awesome, and I am so happy that there was some continuity from the previous practice. Dr. Kooning himself is personable, yet professional. I will continue to be a patient at this practice.

Amanda T. from Camas, WA (Source: Yelp)


I needed a root canal with very little notice and after moving the the area I didn’t have a primary dentist. Not only were they able to fit me in the same day I called but the overall experience was much better than I expected. This was my first root canal and I have only heard negative things about them, but I honestly had almost no pain except for my jaw being somewhat sore for the remainder of the day. I would highly recommend!

Anne Hollingsworth (Source: Google)


This office is one of a kind! Like many people I have dental anxiety, always have. But the staff and doctor Kooning are way above average in making one feel safe and at home. I’m definitely keeping them as my dentist, after seeking for a very long time for a right fit. Doctor Kooning is very nice and funny, making me feel comfortable during my dental work. And the staff is beyond amazing! I highly, highly recommend them!

I get my teeth cleaned twice a year at Kooning Family Dental, and continue to plan on doing so. Everyone is always so warm and friendly. The cleanings are thorough and painless. Also, the appointment reminder emails/texts are lifesavers. I actually enjoy my trips to the dentist – I only wish my insurance would cover more than 2 cleanings/year 🙂 Thanks for helping me maintain a healthy mouth!

I visited Dr Kooning today for a consultation to go over my options to correct a gap. From the moment I checked in, I was treated with excellent service. He was very professional in going over each option thoroughly and answering all of my questions and concerns. Because of that, I felt very comfortable and confident to go ahead with treatment today. I’m so glad I did! He was able to fill in the slight gap with bonding and now I have my smile and confidence back! Thank you Dr Kooning and Staff for making my smile beautiful again!

I recently switched to Dr. Kooning after being with my old dental office for over 15 years. I was so happy with my treatment! I was kindly welcomed when I walked in. The hygienist I had was kind, gentle and he explained everything he was doing. Dr. Kooning took the time to explain my treatment plan and answer all the questions I had. I’m very happy with my new dentist and his staff!

Helen S. from Vancouver, WA (Source: Yelp)


I drove from Vancouver based on my sisters recommendation. I needed a root canal and because i’m in between jobs i don’t have dental insurance. Dr Kooning and his staff were more than helpful instantly helping me out of my SEVERE tooth pain and allowing me to make monthly payments that i could afford AFTER my pain was gone. First class service from start to finish. Chris and Annie are so sweet and I always support family owned businesses!. Highly recommend!

Noah W. from Gladstone, OR (Source: Yelp)


The professionalism and true talent displayed by Dr. Koonings Office was the best I’ve encountered. I walked in to his office and was greeted by Becky, who made me feel comfortable and welcome. Dr. Kooning soon followed and gave me a warm welcome. I had to have a lot of work done on my teeth that required multiple shots to numb my mouth. For the first time in my life I didn’t feel a single thing the whole procedure. Well done Dr. koonings office for the great service and professionalism. I will definitely be coming here for all of my future dental needs.

Don E. from Mount Angel, OR (Source: Yelp)


I just had my first visit with them since transferring from my prior dentist. They were very nice and detailed and had a great atmosphere and very informative as well.My 4 year old daughter had her first ever dental visit there and she loved it and is not scared to go back, so that’s a big plus! I would highly recommend them to someone looking for a new dentist.

This was literally the best dental experience of my life! From the moment I walked in the door, the entire staff was understanding and sensitive to my needs. I have severe anxiety stemming from past dental experiences, and the staff here went out of their way to help me work through that! Dr Kooning and his staff all worked quickly and efficiently, getting me in and out in possibly world record times. He explained what he wanted to do and why, in a way that was easy to understand. I wholeheartedly recommend this dentist office, and doubt I will ever use another dentist myself!!

I decided to switch to a dental office closer to my home.  Dr. Kooning and staff are very nice and very professional.  They were able to accommodate my schedule and get me in in a timely manner.  I also received one of the most thorough teeth cleanings I’ve ever had!  I had some treatment that needed to be done, and Dr. Kooning gave me several options, explaining the pros and cons of each option.  I really appreciate his honesty!  I highly recommend this office!

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


An old filling of mine fell out yesterday, and they fit me into their schedule that afternoon.  They were able to fill it on the spot, so I didn’t have to come back.  Dr. Kooning used a laser on me, so I didn’t have to be numbed up which was GREAT!  The procedure itself was so quick and painless, and my tooth feels so much better.  I will definitely be back to Kooning Family Dentistry for my future dental needs!

J J. from Sandy, OR (Source: Yelp)


In an emergent crunch with a crown that had cracked a quarter off from a botched root canal – Dr Kooning with great kindness and expertise took off the rest of the crown (not easy on this tooth!) and did a great job! He, his staff all lovely. Grateful they took Carecredit! I am going back to him for another tooth soon! Very trustworthy! Dr Kooning has GREAT and sincere bedside manner

Because I’ve lived a peripatetic life, I’ve cycled through many dentists. The range of skill and professionalism spans the spectrum and has made me fearful and wary of dentists in general. But the last two years under Dr. Kooning’s care has facilitated a profound shift in trust. He has easily fixed what other dentists haven’t. He knows how to minimize discomfort while working, and his calm professionalism and confidence puts me at ease. This trickles down to staff, who are efficient, gentle, and kind. Highly recommended.

Dr Kooning and the entire office staff were thoughtful and professional in their care. Everything was explained from the dental procedure to the costs involved. At each step of a lengthy procedure they were attentive and took extra steps to make me comfortable. All done without feeling pain! So glad to discover his practice. I highly recommend this office.

Alison M. from Lake Oswego, OR (Source: Yelp)


This was my first visit to Dr Kooning’s office, and I arrived with excruciating tooth pain as an emergency visit. First let me say how welcoming and pleasant the reception staff were, and how accommodating the were to fit me in at the end of the day. Dr Kooning and his assistant were thorough and very professional as they assessed my tooth and pain issues. After receiving one of the most painless nerve blocks ever, my tooth was repaired and hopefully has avoided bigger issues. Thank you for staying late to fix me up, it was much appreciated. Happy to say I have found my new dental office!

Khrys T. from Troutdale, OR (Source: Yelp)


Kooning Family Dentistry has a great location and is very easy to find. The office is very inviting and Dr Kooning and his staff are beyond wonderful! He is very thorough when explaining your treatment and going into detail while he is working on your teeth. They all make you feel comfortable and not nervous about getting in the chair! I would recommend this office to anyone who has dental jitters!

Genesis T. from Southwest Portland, Portland, OR (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kooning and the office staff are genuinely customer focused. Franki was great in helping me schedule an appointment and kindly greeted me on my first visit. They were sincere about which teeth whitening techniques would be better for me personally -honesty goes a long way! The cleaning was thorough, quick, and painless. They’re a happy group and that helped make my routine visit to the dentist actually enjoyable 🙂

Annie Hollingsworth (Source: Google)


Dr.Kooning and his staff are absolutely amazing! Best part for me is that they bend over backwards to accommodate my busy schedule. Always fitting me in, even last minute. Dr.Kooning is so efficient and explains everything, putting my mind at ease. I highly recommend them for anyone, adult, teens or kids! Clean, super nice office too. Thank you Dr. Kooning and staff!

Hannah S. from Happy Valley, OR (Source: Yelp)


Best dental practice in the Portland area. I have been a patient of the Kooning Family Dentistry family for 2 years. It started with Dr Kooning and the team doing a complicated root canal and crown in which I was denied by other Dr’s, and was suggested to just “get an implant and pull the tooth” Dr Kooning and his team went above and beyond to disclose my risks and informed me they would be able to save the tooth. Dr. Kooning and his team were incredibly sensitive to me and prescribed a sedative, antibiotics, and when I had symptoms from the antibiotics they got me medication for that too. The procedure was painless and I was basically asleep the whole time! Dr Kooning actually produces the crowns there in office which is incredible! Of course I returned to him to have professional whitening done for my wedding. I have calcium deposits and have been told my whole life I would always have those unsightly white and yellow bright spots on my teeth. Dr Kooning and his team of amazing hygienists let me know on the spot that they could actually give me the smile I have always dreamed of in a matter of hours. Not only did they whiten my teeth, they applied composite on those pesky spots and I have never felt more beautiful. I never thought I would be someone who did not have those yucky spots on my teeth and they went over and above to squeeze me into their schedule just so I would have perfect teeth for my wedding. Dr Kooning, his assistants, and his administrative staff are nothing short of a dental miracle. I have moved to Seattle since being their patient and STILL return to Lake Oswego to see them. Thank you Dr. Kooning and team for being different than the rest, for being informative and honest, and most importantly thank you for your compassion and empathy! Best dental practice in the Portland area!
