I have been going to Laurelwood Dental for 7 years now and it’s still amazing. The front desk staff are friendly. Tiffany my dental hygienist is beyond wonderful. My fear of the dentist and cleanings has diminished thanks to Tiffany. She’s always a ray of sunshine. Both dentists are fantastic and a pleasure. I always look forward to going to Laurelwood Dental twice a year.

Literally the best ever. They are understanding, professional and efficient. Every time I am there I am reminded why I drive the 45 min from my house to keep them as my dentist. It feels like they are actually invested in my success. I went a long time without insurance and I was embarrassed when I first came to them. They made me feel comfortable and I didn’t feel judged at all. Of you are looking for a dentist I could not recommend them more. I promise you’ll be so glad you did.

I hate the dentist. When I shared this with the awesome employee who answered the phone, she cheerfully assured me that most people do but that Laurelwood really tries to change that. And they did! I had an appointment first thing in the morning. It was dark, cold and rainy outside and I was feeling the same way as I walked into the building. I opened the door to the clinic and it was bright, warm, cozy and oddly full of happy, smiling employees and patients – even at 7:15 in the morning. They checked me in right away, offered me coffee and asked me to fill out paperwork. I’d barely written down my name before they were already ready for me. My dental hygienist was Mike. He was great! Honest about what to expect, explained everything he was doing while he did it, and made a real effort not to hurt me. He was friendly, understanding and did a great job on my teeth. I also met with Dr. Edwards who was also great. He sat down and took the time to talk with me and get to know me. He was also super friendly and seemed happy to be there (as did literally every employee I encountered). They also gave me a jar full of dry ingredients to make chocolate chip cookies at home which they give out during the holidays. An excellent reward for visiting the dentist! I will absolutely go back and would absolutely recommend Laurelwood to a friend. I found out about Laurelwood through one of my friends – I definitely owe them a thank you. 🙂

As a person who is generally frightened to go to “the dentist” because of an experience very early on in life, I can only say “Best Dentist, and experience ever” to the multiple times I have had to have dental work done since going here. Great customer service from the moment you walk in their door to the moment you leave. Dr. Edwards has superb skills, current-up to date practices and very courteous, caring and calm bedside manners. Tiffany, the hygienist, and the others are fantastic. I can not recommend them any more than I do because I know how many people feel about seeing “the Dentist.”  Make your appointment today…seriously.

I never thought I’d be excited about a dentist appointment, but I was thrilled to get my cleaning now that Portland is opening back up! I’ve gone to Laurelwood for 5 years and I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Their office is punctual, professional, and their communications are always clear. They really seem to go above and beyond for their patients. All the staff I’ve interacted with are wonderful, especially my hygienist, Tiffany! She’s an absolute joy. I highly recommend his practice!

BEST Dentists in Portland, Oregon! If you are in need of a family dentist the team at Laurelwood Dental will take care of all you dental needs. Dr. Hall and Dr. Edwards are skilled professionals who put you at ease with all dental procedures. From teeth cleaning, crowns and complicated dental work you will be in good hands. The hygienists are friendly, thorough and experienced. The front office staff is friendly and assists with insurance and billing in a prompt and courteous manner. The staff are wonderful with children, teens, adults and the elderly. They have been the dentist for our entire family for over 15 years. Thank you Laurelwood Dental!

George S. from Northeast Portland, OR (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been served well by Laurelwood for about ten years. I’ve had fillings, crowns, implants–all done with minimum discomfort and maximum speed and sensitivity. Today I went for my twice-a-year cleaning, and Mike found little cleaning needed because I had followed his instructions. I couldn’t be more pleased! I think it’s worth every cent, and I’m paying my own bill, not insurance. It feels good to have a dental care group I can rely on totally.

I came to Dr Isaac Edwards in August of 2018 with an emergency, Laurelwood got me in the next day Dr Edwards took the time to compassionately ease my fears and fill my broken tooth and provide a porcelain crown all in one appointment. I returned December 2019 for a similar procedure (broken tooth with porcelain crown) all done in one day. It’s convenient to have the equipment on-site to make these one day appointments. The staff is incredibly helpful and professional. I have never met a kinder, compassionate and personal health care provider. I feel very fortunate to be his patient.

After moving to Portland and a negative experience with another dentist, I booked a consultation appointment with Dr. Edwards, and I’m so glad I did. I’m so impressed with how he listened to my concerns and anxieties and how thorough he was, and how he always takes the time to explain everything to me. Lisa is a wonderful and kind hygienist and I’m so thankful to have found a professional, thorough and patient dental practice. Highly recommend.

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


The Laurelwood Dental staff is amazing! Tiffany, our regular hygienist is a gem! We bring our whole family in for a group appointment over two hours and the whole staff is helpful. Tiffany is especially adept at handling our young ones with extra energy while still getting teeth clean. Thanks Laurelwood Dental team! See you in six months. Our kids always want to brush the “sugar bugs” away after visiting.

Anthony N. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great dentist. Even though they are out of network, it will well worth it. We only have one set of teeth at this age, so why not do everything you can to take care of it? I came in with a cracked filling from that a previous dentist did. I’ve just moved to this area and am in the process of finding a new dentist and it seems like you’re gambling with your health, as you go around to try and find a new dentist. My first gamble bit me in the ass, as I was in pain for 6 weeks as the metal filling, that the dentist assured me was stronnger than a composite, cracked a few hours after I left the office. I made multiple phone calls and emails into their office, only to be ignored and finally told that bleeding and swelling was normal for the first few weeks. I’ve had filllings before and not once have I had to wait over 3-4 weeks before I could chew. Enter Dr. Edwards; I may not be a dentist and understand the dental lingo, but I really apperciate that he was informing me of his approaches, and plan before and while he was working on me. Dr. Edwards will be my new dentist. I highly recommend him.

The entire team puts 100% in all that they do, and they do it all! Best dental practice I’ve ever had working on my mouth. State of the art equipment, quick and courteous, with the added benefit of science based knowledgeable solutions for every dental need. If you are looking for the best, stop looking. Laurelwood Dental is loaded with notch professionals.

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


Another year has gone by and I’m still visiting laurel wood! They have been taking great care of my teeth and continue to be my favorite dentist. There have been a couple staff changes due to retirement and the younger doctors are just as friendly and knowledgeable as the previous ones. I’ve also had great luck with getting those afternoon spots lately! I appreciate their friendliness, gentleness, and fun. They’re the best.

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


I have been with Laurelwood dental practically my whole life and now my two children and husband go there as well. Even with a change in location (further than before) and change in insurance coverage I have decided to stick with this office because the people are amazing!  I especially love our dental hygienist Tiffany who is so great with my kids!  This establishment is very family oriented and knows how to make the appointments enjoyable for all!

Naphtalie S. from Salem, OR (Source: Yelp)


My husband and I love Laurelwood Dental! From the moment you walk in to the moment you leave, you will have a great experience. Everyone is friendly but we come because Dr. Edwards is Fantastic. I have had sub par dentists, and dentists that I thought were good… Then I went to Dr. Edwards. I have had pretty poor experience in the past when getting numb for procedures, but he has made everything painless and pays such attention to detail. He is so good at what he does that my husband and I drive over an hour to see him!

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


I hadn’t been to the dentist in several years and I was very anxious.  Every person I interacted with, from the front desk to the hygienist to the dentist, was extremely kind to me.  They took care of figuring out all my insurance information and let me know up front how much I should expect to pay.  They also explained every step of each procedure and let me take breaks when I felt uncomfortable. I have terribly sensitive teeth and gums and they really listened to me about this, were super reassuring during the whole visit, and seemed to take extra care to be gentle and stopped the moment anything hurt at all. They were extremely professional and patient, and also friendly without forcing me to make awkward small talk with stuff in my mouth. They also did not make me feel bad for not going to the dentist for a few years. I cannot recommend this practice highly enough — I am so glad to have found them.

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


Laurelwood Dental provides some pretty quick and hassle free experiences. They are focused on providing care and educating the public about the advantages of good oral hygiene. They are great at making reminders for future check ups and make cleanings and exams a breeze. It seems like they want to do these jobs so well that all other services disappear. I can only imagine this would put them out of business, yet they continue to help with routine and preventative care.

Laurelwood Dental is fantastic for so many reasons! If you have any anxiety about going to the dentist, this is the place for you. If you can believe it, I really enjoy going. -They have excellent customer service. Their desk staff is friendly, patient, and informative. I get text reminders for my appointments. Love it! -My hygienist is sweet, informative and through. I enjoy going to see her, she is gentle with my gums/teeth but gets every spot sparkling clean! -I have seen both dentists and really like each of them. I feel like I have never been “sold” something that I did not medically need. This has happened to me at OTHER dental offices, and I have paid for it in sensitive teeth. I truly trust these doctors opinions, feel informed by their recommendations, and am never left feeling ashamed that I didn’t floss (only highly encouraged). -Space- They have a lovely clean office and all their dental chairs face out the window into the trees. Pretty nice.

I have pretty strong fear of the dentist, and this group has been nothing but wonderful. Even during COVID, they’ve taken my comfort seriously and gone the extra mile to make sure I feel as safe and at ease as possible. I’ve had the same hygenist every time, and she’s wonderful, and they’ve worked hard to make sure I work with the same dentist every time (it hasn’t always been possible). When I need a crown, they make them on the premises, so no “it doesn’t fit, send it back, reschedule, come back” shenanigans I’ve had with other offices. I can’t speak highly enough about this office.

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


This is the absolutely best dental practice!  Everybody is warm and friendly, appointments run on time, and the dental work is beautiful and structurally sound.  They are so patient oriented, and cheerfully accommodate patient quirks (eg- can’t stand dental dams, they won’t use one).  A special shout out to their administrative chief, Gayla, who is a patient miracleworker  in helping figure out and getting difficult insurance claims processed successfully. You really want to make this your Dental office.  Kathy , NE Portland

Teeth cleaning with resulting follow-up appointments isn’t my preference but being a patient of Laurelwood Dental, I’m comfortable with the concern from Staff and both Dr. Hall and Dr. Edwards advising me. Dr. Edwards’ knowledge and experience is guiding me through advice and procedure that isn’t common with most but I’m confident of the outcome as explained. The staff is like a big happy family and I’m always treated royally, during and after the appointment.

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


I have been in the market for a new dentist as I have been to a few in Portland in the past couple of years that I wasn’t impressed with BUT I think I’ve finally found one to stay at. Laurelwood Dental uses all of the latest technology while still being about the health of my teeth…. unlike the dentists out there who are either antiquated or have technology to cover up other short comings. The staff is all very friendly at Laurelwood and very knowledgeable. They seem honest and genuine about making sure my mouth is happy instead of trying to charge me money. I was also impressed with their records and tracking of each tooth, making me feel like they really will watch everything going on to keep my teeth in check. I’m looking forward to another visit in 6 months!

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


I don’t even know where to begin in describing how grateful I am to have discovered this dentists office a few years ago. These people are amazing! Really, I can truly say that they are in it for the right reasons. It is not about bleeding you dry (I don’t have insurance so trust me about the money part) and making you endure unnecessary dental work.  I have had 3 crowns and multiple fillings done there and have yet to run into any problems. I really appreciate how much they actually care about me (they have seen me a lot this summer) and how patient they are with me. I absolutely love this place and cannot recommend it more! Dr. Edwards is the best ever and the dentist hygienists are lovely people too. I also need to give props to the ladies at the front desk. Thank you so much for putting up with my never ending phone calls and emails!

Very glad to have sorted through a (long) list of dental offices in my area and chosen Laurelwood. Everyone is friendly and kind, from the reception area and beyond and I have a pleasant experience every time I come in. I have really sensitive teeth and I have never felt very comfortable at the dentist until now. They also make it really easy to schedule checkups since they send reminders and offer online scheduling which is really helpful. As long as I live in Portland, I will be coming to Laurelwood. Thanks for all that you do!

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


This place is wonderful! The office is warm and inviting and the staff is friendly and helpful. Tiffany is my hygienist; she is always warm and friendly and puts you at ease while cleaning your teeth. She is also very thorough in explaining treatments, procedures, general dental health, and anything else you may have questions about. I have seen both Dr. Hall and Dr. Edwards and they have been very kind and attentive to my health. I can’t say enough good things about this place! Be sure to schedule an appointment in December so you can get a free jar of cookie mix!

Fernando A. from Cedar Hills, Portland, OR (Source: Yelp)


I normally don’t do reviews but with Laurelhurt’s Dental I feel very strongly to say something very positive about them. I have been a patient for many years and I have had the absolute best experience with them always. I had been treated really well over the years and I had extensive work done and every time my experience it’s been a great one. About 14 years ago I lost my job and I was unemployed for a while without insurance. Well, they told me not to worry about the money and when I get back on my feet, I could pay them. They are a great team of very knowledgeable and compassionate people. They had always go the extra mile with care and flexibility. I wish every business is like them. The world would be a better place. By the way, they did my implants completely customized. A real piece of art work!!

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


I have always had fantastic care at Laurelwood Dental.  The staff is very professional yet very friendly, the care is outstanding and even the dental hygienists are wonderful. Stephanie is the best one I have experienced so far! I hope she does not move away! While all the dentists come highly recommended I have only been seen by Dr. Edwards and he is superb and makes you feel very comfortable. No pain, even when giving shots!
No more fear of going to the dentist!

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


I’ve been using Laurelwood Dental for close to 20 years.  That should tell you all you need to know.  The dentists are professional and caring. The same goes for the hygienists.  They send me reminders when it’s time for an appointment and are very accommodating when it comes to scheduling and payment over time (when something major needs to be done).  They always check to see if I have any questions/concerns and are always pleasant.  And if you do a very good job of brushing and flossing, you’ll get a nice pat on the back!

I returned to Laurelwood Dental after a couple of years away, and I decided to return because I am undergoing a dental implant removal, which is is not only daunting, but also unnerving. Even though it’s a 30 min drive each way, it’s worth every mile. Dr. Issac and the staff are incredibly caring, patient and helpful. It’s easy to be fearful of dentistry, yet I am relieved to be in such safe and trustworthy hands at Laurelwood Dental. I don’t write reviews often, but I felt I owed it to others searching for quality care.

Recently, I had a routine teeth cleaning and was a little hesitant about my visit due to COVID-19. However, the moment I arrived I was warmly greeted and immediately impressed by the additional precautions that this dental team has in place. It was extremely apparent that keeping everyone healthy and safe was a first priority throughout the entire visit. I am so grateful for the thoughtful and superior care I always receive at Laurelwood Dental – it is simply unmatched!!

Let’s face it, going to the dentist sucks. Period. There’s no way around that fact. What Laurelwood Dentist does is make the dentist experience suck less and that’s a win in my book. As a new customer, I expected to have to wait a few weeks to be seen. Nope. I was offered an appointment the very next day. My appointment was scheduled for the middle of the night, 7:30am, and I walked into a smiling, friendly, cheerful, and awake group of professionals. Front desk was friendly, not indifferent ass holes like I’ve experienced at other healthcare providers. The x-ray tech was friendly and had a great personality. She checked in on me multiple times as I awaited my cleaning and visit from the dentist. The lady who performed my cleaning was not heavy-handed, was pleasant, and friendly. The dentist had great bedside manner and spent time with me explaining everything and making sure I had all my questions answered. I’m totally stoked to have landed in Portland and have immediately found a keeper.

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


Laurelwood Dental has done nothing but excellent work in all regards. They answered my email as a new patient efficiently, straight from their website (only one to do so of the 4 clinics I emailed), gave me fantastic care and service while getting my cleaning and fillings done, and all the staff, hygienists, and doctors I came across were friendly and helpful. I can’t recommend this office enough. Definitely a top choice, even as a person with no dental insurance that had to pay cash. Worth the money for the great experience.

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


Today’s visit with Laurelwood Dental was excellent. The office staff is very friendly and personal when one checks in. I was called back on time and the hygienist, Mike, provided me with a thorough exam and cleaning. He was very personable and made me comfortable with “going to the dentist”. Dr.  Edwards is great. He has a fantastic personality and has been excellent with my dental planning and dental procedures in the past. I am so pleased with my care. I would definitely recommend this practice to others.

Rin Krieter (Source: Google)


Great bedside manner; they narrate what they are doing so you don’t have to speculate or fret. Also understanding when it comes to financial restrictions (they don’t try to guilt or force you into going through a procedure you can’t comfortably afford). While I usually dislike going to the dentist because of past experiences, this place is the exception.

Mayzie H. from Portland, OR (Source: Yelp)


these dudes rule! after my dentist retired a few years ago i put off finding a replacement because it was so overwhelming. proximity/yelp helped me make the choice to come here, and i really can’t recommend them enough. the facilities are clean and welcoming, and everyone is super nice. i’m bad at interpreting insurance mumbo-jumbo, and they took the time to go over my coverage and explain all procedures to me. plus, fred meyer is right there, so you can take your sewing with nancy mouth across the lot and go buy yourself popsicles and mashed potatoes. i got a couple intense cleanings done, and each visit was a great experience. my hygienist, mike, is super sweet and funny–he really put me at ease. i think a good hygienist is key to having a good experience at the dentist. he’s gentle, but he gets the job done and was not stingy with novocaine! maybe it’s because i hadn’t been to the dentist in so long, but i feel like this joint is really high-tech. i love the screen at the chair, so you can see x-rays of your gnarly teeth and ask questions on the spot. if you’re like me and you’ve put dental work off for a while, come here and don’t be fearful. they will take care of you!
