I lost a crown last night at work. The pain was terrible whenever I spoke, ate, drank and even breathed! I called the after hours emergency number for my dentist and got “offices are open Monday, would you like a prescription for a pain killer?” I did not, I wanted my tooth back!!! Beside the point, I called/visited 7 dentists in my area, on public transit, and no one could/would help me. Smiles northwest were wonderful! The receptionist alone made my day, she was so good when I started crying on the phone, I managed to get there 30 min. later than I said I would and I was in the chair and numb within 15 minutes. The dentist (sorry I didn’t get his name) was nice, easy to talk to and great! I was out in under 30 minutes and all is well. These people run a clean, kind and wonderful business! My insurance was not accepted here but for an emergency appointment, kindness and quality work my bill was still under $200. I love these people and wish that my insurance was accepted here because I would defiantly go back!!!

I’ve been a happy patient of Dr. Montrose since 1986. I’m posting this review now because I had an amazing positive experience last week. I fell and broke a tooth on the way to the airport. Smiles NW got me in immediately, Dr. Dotson built me a new tooth right there in the chair, and they got me on my way quickly enough to make my flight! It looks and works just the same as the old tooth too.

My jaw had bothered me for years. I was having headaches on a daily basis and migraines multiple times a month due to the pain. Thanks to Dr. Alan Montrose for providing me with TMJ therapy and a dental Orthotic my jaw no longer bothers me and I am headache free. Thank you Smiles Northwest for being professional, kind, courteous, informative and helping me feel so comfortable throughout my therapy and treatment. The front office staff was especially helpful with assisting me in finding the right finance options. A. Alvarez.

I have been a patient at Smiles Northwest for 15 years. Dr. Montrose is the best cosmetic and general dentist in Portland. Smiles Northwest has all of the latest technology to ensure dental work accuracy and patient comfort. The business is run efficiently and all of the staff are genuinely caring.

My experience at Smiles NW was exceptional. The decor and atmosphere was up-to-date and professional. I particularly enjoyed the espresso maker in the lobby! The front desk staff were helpful and able to answer all my questions. The hygienist was gentle, knowledgeable, and friendly. She was attentive to my questions/concerns and collaborated with Dr. Montrose to make sure that I was given thorough answers. My only disappointment with Smiles NW was that I had to wait for a long time before Dr. Montrose came in, though I suppose having a busy dentist is a good sign because it speaks to the fact that lots of people have entrusted him with their oral health. Overall, my experience was positive and I highly recommend Smiles NW!

Miracle workers! I have suffered with headaches for over the past 10 years. And not just one per month, or one per week… I’m talking every single day, from the moment I woke up to when I could finally go to sleep, I always had a headache. Knowing that clenching was a major contributor, I have also worn a nightguard for many years. However, the nightguard alone didn’t seem to be working. So I asked the dentists at Smiles NW to take a look. With their extensive knowledge in neuromuscular therapy, they determined that I was holding my jaw in a certain way that kept my muscles firing at all times, causing headaches. Going through neuromuscular therapy, I have not had a single headache in the last two months! I didn’t realize how much pain I had been in until I was finally pain-free. I highly recommend Smiles NW!

This is the office I trust with my teeth. Dr. Montrose is very educated in cosmetic dentistry and I need to know that before I allow anyone to work on my teeth. Katie my hygienist is also super knowledgeable about cosmetic dentistry and I never have to remind her not to scratch my teeth. The staff is very professional and the office is welcoming. If you need the best, I suggest this office. I don’t feel like their pricing is any more than other offices. They also offer 5% discount if paying by check or cash.

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


Still seeing Lori and Dr. Montrose and couldn’t be happier. They run a tight ship over there and my visits feel so smooth. My teeth and gums are the best they’ve ever been and I always look forward to my visits because Lori (Hygienist) is amazing. She is both friendly and thorough. Dr. Montrose filled a cavity in between my two front teeth years ago and I was so nervous at the time but to this day they look great and you can’t tell I had it done. Luckily I haven’t had to do too many cosmetic dental dental procedures but I wouldn’t trust anyone but Mr. Montrose when the need arises.

I have been a patient at smiles northwest for over 8 years. I have had exceptional dental treatment from all of the Dr’s. The assistants do an amazing job working side by side with the Dr’s so they can put all their focus on you. The front desk works very hard to answer every question you may have for billing and finical concerns. The hygiene department is amazing at keeping you informed of your health and offering advice on the most up to date scientific evidence of how to maintain your smile for a lifetime.

Great office, great staff, and I love my dentist, Dr. Montrose. I really appreciate the service and care at Smiles Northwest. They know me, remember me, and really take are of ensuring my consistent care. For years, I went to a practice downtown that was good. I switched because the practice didn’t feel that warm to me. The location and service here is so great. It feels like visiting friends

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


Quality and care seem to be the watchwords at Smiles Northwest. Before coming to this place I’ve never associated any kind of brand loyalty with a dentist office, but these guys are amazing. After about a year and several visits I’ve had only good experience with them. Obvious selling points are the nice waiting area, courteous and professional office staff, and very competent dental staff (I’ve worked with Doctors Jeremy and Allen Montrose). But to go a step further, I had a dental emergency come up the day after Thanksgiving when the office was closed. I called the emergency number and within an hour I got a call from Dr. Jeremy who agreed to meet with me in an hour. Rather than just do a quick fix and send me away with pain meds he and Dr. Allen spent time working the problem and ended up relieving the pressure that was causing me such agony. I felt better almost immediately.

Great office!! The environment is warm and inviting. Smiles Northwest has an exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable staff. It has been a true pleasure having my dental needs met by such world class doctors. Thank you.

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


Dr. Alan Montrose has been my dentist for over 10 years and Vanessa Dexter, RDH, has been my hygienist for just about as long. Every visit has been professional, thorough, informational and friendly. I highly recommend (and have) both Dr. Montrose and Mrs. Dexter. I have also found the entire staff (Heather, for one) to be of the same high professional quality and friendliness. When Dr. Montrose or Mrs. Dexter have not been in the office, others have seen me and have also been very professional and friendly. I have found that Smiles Northwest can be trusted for your dental health and care.

Smiles Northwest is the best dental experience hands down!! I have been going for the last 22 years. Although I did take about a 7 year break when I moved away, I couldn’t wait to return. They are all very friendly and caring. Never to I feel I’m just another client… feel like i’m part of the family. They are also so high tech!! I’m amazed with the advances and trust them to do the right things for my teeth!

Dude the people who work here are the most patient and nice healthcare workers ive ever interacted with. from the getgo my whole situation was messed up. i had a rough morning and wound up forgetting my wallet at home, and since the online form i partially filled out didnt send it meant i was missing some vital info. since i hadnt factored in starting my paperwork over, i wound up being 20 minutes late starting my appointment because i was caught up trying to find my social in my inbox and grumbling a lot. at no point did they seem outwardly annoyed with me and the lady at the desk was helpful with every question i had! the assistant who did the cleaning was total sweetheart who had somehow mastered the art of talking with your hands in somebodys mouth. she would wait to ask questions until i could answer them and had a bunch of awesome things to chat about. it was about then an assistant came in to say my insurance was still being worked on. when i said i was worried if it would at all, they suggested i skip the xrays until next time just in case. the dentist himself was also super chill and down to earth. my dental history is kind of janked, so these situations usually make me anxious, but i was totally relaxed from start to finish. it came up that i had a cavity and a filling had a superficial chip in it. at the place i used to go to, they would have hopped on my butt and tried to get me to replace the chip right away, but he said it wasn’t a problem unless i noticed food sticking into it and didnt press it further. the cherry on my “worst client ever” sundae was probably at the end, when it turned out my dad’s dental only covered me into my teens. they didnt make a fuss about it or try to needle me into paying out of pocket and waited as i got ahold of him and sorted a payment plan out with him. they were honest about the severity of the cavity i had to us, reassuring us that a couple months while we got insurance would be fine to wait before operating, and holding off on making an appointment. i implore anyone who goes into the office to make sure you have your junk together first since they didnt deserve the amount of stress i caused, but its so great to know that an office will continue to treat you like gold even if you mess stuff up. they went above and beyond to make sure everything was alright, and didn’t try to coax me into unnessisary work for a few extra bucks. im so thankful for that! the only thing i would advise against is using the online paperwork thing, which totally isnt their bad. it says it sends partial data, but according to the staff even completed pages get lost in the internet tubes now and then. just show up a little early and fill it out before your appointment and youre in for a smooth ride!

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Montrose’s for nearly a decade. His work and care are truly exceptional! His credentials in dentistry is unmatched in the Portland area. After seeing his work (I had quite a bit of dental care), my wife and daughter also started going. I give Dr. Montrose and his team my highest recommendation.

Tony Velasquez (Source: Facebook)


I’ve been going here for some time and have always been extremely impressed with the care here. Not only the doctors but the assistants and support staff! They are all incredibly friendly and highly professional.

Smiles NW is amazing. The staff are all very friendly and make the experience first class. Dr. Montrose is great and goes above and beyond to make sure your taken care of. The location is very convenient and the new office is full of light which adds to the overall experience. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a Dentist.

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


I am so incredibly impressed with Dr. Montrose and his team! I started going here back in 2011 for invisalign treatment and have been coming here for cleanings and exams ever since. I remember back when I was first considering invisalign and just getting quotes, Dr. Montrose stood out to me because he actually listened to what I wanted and what my concerns were instead of trying to offer me a full-on treatment plan (I just wanted minor adjustments). Seriously, I got a quote from five places and this was the only one that was willing to tailor the treatment and not insist on 2 years of metal braces for a “perfect smile”. I just wanted some minor alignment fixes and closing some gaps and appreciated that they made that possible and provided multiple payment options. I just lost an invisalign retainer and the awesome lady at the front desk (Megan?) ordered it with expedited shipping within a few minutes of calling her. They are always more than willing to answer all of my questions and have worked with me and my insurance a few times to make sure I was happy and answer coverage questions, which was above and beyond what I expected. Plus, you can do a paraffin wax dip on your hands while they’re cleaning your teeth which makes it a little bit spa dayish. If you’re looking for a dentist or trying to decide between invisalign providers, please give these guys a try!

My son attends Portland State and broke off a veneer but his cosmetic dentist is in Phoenix, AZ. Our dentist referred us to Smiles Northwest. They got him in the next day. They kept in contact with me the entire time. They were friendly and did not hesitate to accept him as a referral new patient. I am so happy that we have our new dentist for my son while he is at school. My son said it looks and feels great, too!

I just had full mouth impressions using equipment that simply scans over each tooth creating a digital impression for making my night guard. None of that gooey stuff needed and having to hold your mouth open while the goo hardens. Incredible technology, pain free and only took a few minutes. Thank you to Dr. Montrose and your highly skilled and compassionate team for uting this stress-free procedure.

By far the best Dentist office I have ever gone to. They go above and beyond to make you feel as comfortable as possible. They also provide a lot more services than just your standard dentist. I was able take an at home sleep apnea test, and get fitted with a new mouth piece through them as well. As someone who over the years tried to avoid going to the dentist as much as possible, I can actually say I now have a place I enjoy going to. If you are looking for a new dentist I strongly recommend Smiles Northwest.

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


This beautiful, modern clinic uses state of the art equipment and staffs some of the best doctors, hygienists and dental assistants and front office personnel in Portland. The front office is friendly and helpful for coordinating scheduling and billing. The hygienists and dental assistants are careful and detailed with their care for patients. Dr. Montrose is a stand out in his profession. He is an expert in dental medicine and importantly has an eye for aesthetics that make his care truly exceptional. Dr. Dotson is equally qualified for patient care and a personal favorite of my husbands. Our family highly recommends Smiles NW and we are thankful to have them as our option for dental health.

Patty M. from Beaverton, OR (Source: Yelp)


I’ve never had any anxiety before going to Smiles Northwest for a cleaning or other treatment. My hygienist is Laurie, and she’s terrific! Dr. Alan Montrose is my regular dentist, but I’ve also been seen by Dr. Jeremy Montrose and Dr. Dotson in a pinch. They all do quality work, and take good care of me. I recommend this dental practice very highly.

I’ve been going to Smiles Northwest for years. Since going there, I have not let any other place touch my teeth. I have gone for something simple such as a teeth cleaning appointment to getting my wisdom teeth pulled and I have had nothing but the best. This place has a great team of doctors, hygienests, assistants, front desks, and lab workers.

Visited Smiles Northwest for the first time ever today! As someone who has had the same painful routine dental experience since childhood….this experience really blew me away. I have never had such a personal and caring health visit. Not even the delivery of our two children had this level of care and concern. Highly recommend Smiles NW!

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


I’ve been a client for the last 20 years. The care and dedication of Dr. Alan Montrose is phenomenal. He actually came to my house when my mother was bedridden to help with her dental problems. He recommended Invisalign when my teeth sifted from aging and it worked fantastically. My smile is phenomenal now. You will not be disappointed with the care and dedication of this dental office.
