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

Marie C. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Elizabeth Sasse, her assistant Paige, the office manager, Michael, my hygienst Donna, and Ashley at the front desk are all EXCEPTIONAL people. I have been a patient for over 3 years now, and I am treated with respect, tender loving care, humor and kindness. I’m always happy to hear from them and they make going to the dentist a really fun, positive experience. They take the time to truly learn who their patients are, and my individual needs, goals and health are very important to them. I’d recommend Dr. Sasse and her amazing team to everyone who wants to enjoy seeing the dentist.

I just finished taking my whole family here to get our teeth checked and cleaned. I must say I was very pleased with our whole visit. The dentist took the time to sit with me and answer all my questions (hey I am parent so of course I’m gonna have questions), the hygienist were friendly and courteous, and the front office was welcoming and professional. Especially Ashley. They took great care of my children and made it an enjoyable experience. They even saw my son who currently has braces. I was most impressed with how careful and gentle they were while working on my teeth. I have very sensitive teeth and have had major dental work in the past. As with most people I am apprehensive about going to the dentist, but as far as dentists go, I would definitely recommend TTSD!

I loved this place! Highly recommend it. I don’t usually like going to the dentist but this place was friendly, knowledgeable, and affordable – everything I was looking to find! I thought the receptionist was thoughtful and was knowledgeable about financing. She scheduled me into an appointment immediately. I think the dentist was friendly and highly skilled. I recommended this place to my fiance.

Alwlad T. from Buena Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


The best dental office that I had. I really trusted them and all my experiences with doctors there were amazing. I switched jobs and when I found that they do not carry my new insurance I was really upset that I had to find a new dentist. I called them last month for cleaning as my new dentist (whom I hate so much) couldn’t accommodate my schedule. They were so kind to book me an appointment the next day and they gave me a discount since I will be paying out of pocket. They were professional, upfront with prices, and nice as always. I really hope that my company would change dental insurance so I can come back.

I had my first appointment with Dr.Sasse (sassy) yesterday and it went wonderfully! Every person from the hygienist and assistant to the office manager was super warm & friendly, and definitely knowledgeable! As someone who gets anxious at the dental office I felt taken care of and they made my overall experience as pleasant as possible. Definitely coming back!

Arianne A. from American Canyon, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am very pleased by the work that dr. Sasse did . I got a crown and a deep cleaning done all in the same day. The team made sure to make time for all the work I wanted to get done. She was very gentle, honest and great to work with. Her whole staff took great care of me. Donna was my hygienist and she was extremely friendly, gentle and throughout. Jody was Dr. Sasses assistant and she was awesome! She took perfect xrays and even held my hand while I was getting numb to ease the nerves. since dental work can be an unexpected expense they were able to work out payment plans. I would recommend this office to all my friends and family.

Chelsie H. from Mililani, HI (Source: Yelp)


I had a massive tooth infection, so I called here to get help! The staff was so unbelievably helpful! I got help from Samantha Wilson, Corwina and Ashley! They scrambled around to call places that could do an emergency extraction as soon as possible since my regular dentist office was extremely unhelpful. I called last minute and at the end of the day crying to find some relief! They got me into another office at 7 am the next morning! Thank you ladies so much for your kindness in helping me get things fixed! I will give you all my business and refer anyone and everyone to this location!!!

One of the best dental experiences I have had! Dentists that are helpful, fun and friendly. Dentists that are helpful and kind are hard to come by, and Tigard Triangle was just that. All my questions were answered, my insurance and payments were explained and shown to me.. everything was great. My cleaning was gentle and the staff were really fun and friendly. Just what you want in a dental office. No pain, no stupid sales pitches or pushy stuff… absolutely great service. Getting my wisdom teeth done in a month and they made that process easy and quick. Thank you Tigard Triangles!!

Had a few cavities filled here, along with a cleaning and x-rays taken. Took roughly 2 hours for everything and went smoothly. The staff was friendly. I liked that they were able to pull up my plan information and confirm how much exactly I would have to pay out of pocket and how much insurance covered. They spent time at the beginning, and throughout the visit, confirming what I wanted done and what my concerns were. Even when they said I had a few cavities, they asked if I wanted to get the fixed; there was no hard push or sell from them other than just providing me information to make decisions. I appreciated them making it clear I was their priority. I don’t enjoy going to the dentist, and I was/am anxious about getting cavities filled… but they made the process easier than I thought. Very pleased.

I swear to all that is good and holy I did not know going to the dentist could be ENJOYABLE. Starting with the fact that me and husband showed up a full week early – they still managed to get us in, clean our oft-neglected grills, extract one and cap another on him and give me a filling. All while being kind, gentle, respectful (of us, time, budget, etc), fun and funny. I should have known it would be all good when Dr. Sasse shook my hand. Yes, Doctor Sasse, and she *is* sassy! I love how she explained everything really clearly and took the time to make sure all was understood properly. All in all, the best time that could be had, was. And – pina colada mouth rinse.

Emily A. from Newberg, OR (Source: Yelp)


What a place! This is truly a modern dentist office. I saw Dr. Sassy, who was very personable and knowledgeable. We discussed options and I received a printout beforehand of what everything would cost with my insurance so I was able to choose what I wanted to have done. No surprises. All the staff was very friendly and organized; their process is streamlined, fast, and efficient. I was pleasantly impressed with everything!!

The dentist usually is a very traumatic experience for me and even though i needed major work Dr. Sassy and her staff made the appointments as easy, cost effective and plesent as possible. I never write reviews but wanted to thank Dr. Sassy for taking the trauma out of the process. Cannot recommend this office highly enough!

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


Very professional and friendly environment. I’ve always been afraid of the dentist but the team at Tigard Triangle Smiles makes you feel welcome and very comfortable. Explains every single step so that you’re aware of all the treatment/costs that you are dealing with. The doctors actually listen to your problems/concerns and gives different options to fulfill your needs. I have many visits ahead of me, an extensive work to be done for I’ve ignored my problems too long. I look forward to future visits. I hope they are as great as it was at my first visit.

Tony B. from Tigard, OR (Source: Yelp)


I called for a first-appointment due to a lost filling, they scheduled one for the next morning on an emergency basis. I dealt with a cordial, friendly receptionist, dental assistant, benefits coordinator, and dentist. After a full set of digital x-rays, and electronic photos of each of my teeth, I was presented with a detailed treatment plan by the dentist, with various options based upon my financial situation (no insurance) The financial aspects of the options were explained by the benefits coordinator. I would whole heartedly refer anyone to this practice.

My 4th crown from Tigard Triangle Smiles completed today. I’ve had 3 same day CEREC CAD/CAM (perfect each one) and this time opted for a conventional gold crown. Dr. Sasse listened to my reasoning and prepped the upper 3rd molar with that in mind. The tooth cooperated and she took minimal original material. The prep was so precise that the temporary stayed put through the holiday meals and gatherings with no epoxy!!! Her technique, as usual was superb, gentle and efficient and with assistant Aurelio’s help I had absolutely zero discomfort during or after the procedure. No bruising, sore lips/gums/jaw…even the injection was painless. Today they removed the temp and my new gold crown is perfect. My first visit was for a walk-in gum abscess. Some years of neglect and my age added up to early stage periodontal disease. With their help, advice, modern equipment and approach we have turned my disease around and I am very healthy dentally. Dr. Sasse enjoys her work and it shows. She demands perfection and will take as much time and resources as needed to do the work properly. I am technically oriented and I ask a lot of questions, which she enthusiastically answers. The office staff is friendly. I never feel rushed or sense anything but efficiency, familiarity, compassion and a generally relaxed atmosphere. Never “pushy” or “selling” products or procedures. They deal with the insurance and I feel I have gone from diseased and dentist-shy to extremely healthy and educated and the costs have been reasonable, explained in advance and well worth it. I trust Dr. Sasse and the entire staff. I was a hard-sell, old school-er with a few bad experiences in the past. My trust was earned and I whole heatedly recommend Tigard Triangle Smiles. I am very very proud of my progress and am grateful for having found Tigard Triangle Smiles.

I haven’t been able to go to the dentist for 10 yrs( I know lonnnng over due) so I was nervous as heck. Let me tell you the staff here is so nice and welcoming and so thorough I’ve never been so impressed. I had issues with some front teeth over the years where I was embarrassed to smile. They listened to every concern and when it came for my teeth cleaning they did such detail work scaling and took their time. Now I can literally smile which is so important to me I cried I was so happy. You’d never think a trip to the dentist would be such a blessing.

Charlie F. from Fountain Hills, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I’m in town from Arizona and had a front crown shatter just after I had reached Portland. With my dentist 1600 miles away I needed a quick solution to what was both a painful and painfully embarrassing dental emergency. The team at Tigard Triangle Smiles got me in relatively quickly, put me at ease that they could handle the issue that day and worked around a very full schedule to resolve my situation. Everyone was courteous and professional and I could t be happier with my repaired smile. Thank you Tigard Triangle Smiles! Ps: Ask Paige about the Mill Machine!

Like many people, I wasn’t a big fan of dentists. Tigard Triangle Dentist changed that for me. They treat you like they are in your shoes and really care to understand your concerns. The staff is amazing, and they are so gentle and easy to talk to. I would highly recommend them! Best dentist experience ever!

Pamela T. from Portland, OR (Source: Yelp)


Doctor Sasse and her team are so friendly, professional and personable. They helped me through a very painful root canal procedure with humor, professionalism, sensitivity to me as a patient and the pain I was in as I arrived. I’m going to follow Doctor Sasse wherever she goes because she’s the best!!!!! Pamela Turenne

I walked in several years ago suffering from a gum abscess. Years of neglect, age and some bad experiences in the past led to early stage gum disease. Dr. Sasse and the team have helped to turn my dire dental situation into a disease free, well educated and loyal patient. I have had 3 badly needed restorations using the CEREC CAD/CAM same-day procedure and just today walked out with a conventional gold crown on an upper 3rd molar. Dr. Sasse and assistant Aurelio did an amazing job. Painless from beginning to end. Never had the slightest soreness, bruising or any discomfort of any kind. My teeth and gums are now healthy and all of the work I have put off these years is now complete. I recommend Tigard Triangle Smiles without hesitation and am 100% confident and grateful I found them. They have earned my trust…I was a hard sell, believe me.

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


This place is fantastic! It was clean and had a comfortable atmosphere. I was greeted right away and in with the dentist soon after. The dentist was friendly and understanding of my situation. I had x-rays done by the assistant, who couldn’t be friendlier! I was impressed by the efficient manor in which the team worked yet I never once felt rushed! I felt as tho I was the only client being seen at that time and that was refreshing! The exam was thorough and the technology they used made it extremely easy to comprehend the findings and understand what steps were needed in the future. At the end someone came in to go over pricing options, she was patient and understanding as well. The whole experience was really great! I would definitely recommend this place!

I had a broke part of my tooth last evening while having dinner. I called the next morning and even though they had a full day of appointments they fit me in at 3:30 for a review. While they warned me that they may not be able to remedy my issue at this appointment they could at least assess my situation which I appreciated. My expectations were exceeded when dentist Liz Sasse stayed late to repair the damage. I was very impressed with her professionalism, attention to detail and my comfort. Ana the dental hygienist had a great attitude and continued to check in with me as I waited for Liz to work on my tooth between her appointments.to provide. She also explained to me the process of milling my crown. The team at Tigard Triangle has provided me with good check ups over the past three years as well as replacing a few metal fillings. I recommend Tigard Triangle Dentistry.

I recently moved to Portland and needed to find a new dentist. I am very happy with the service at Tigard Triangle Smiles Dentistry and how quickly they were able to get me in for a new patient appointment. Jody is super friendly and made the xrays and cleaning a breeze. I was seen by Dr. Sasse who was extremely nice and thorough during the appointment. Also very impressed with the front staff! Would definitely recommend this dental office to anyone needing a general dentist or dental work done.

Sarah E. from Metzger, Tigard, OR (Source: Yelp)


Like most I hate any and all dental work Dr. Sasse is compassionate and kind and was not overwhelming with the work I needed done.  I did need some oral surgery which I was able to have in the office by Dr. Sharifi.  I could not recommend him more.  The staff is great, clinic is clean and up to date.  Thank you for making some I have been dreading not so bad.

Dr. Sasse and staff, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!! Dr. Sasse has CHANGED this dental office to be THE NEW STANDARD of dental care. She has developed an incredible team; they are always learning and growing. They exhibit AMAZING teamwork. When Dr. Sasse took over this office, she “inherited” some problems from previous providers who had been working in this office. I’m one of them. 🙁 SO, she FIXED my problems that were left by her predecessors. Dr. Sasse and her whole staff have provided EXCEPTIONAL dentistry. They have been friendly, caring, gentle, and professional. They did not treat me like this was my fault, and they accepted that previous providers didn’t do an adequate job. And then they made it right!

Great dental office. There’s a kids area with games and a TV to keep all ages occupied while you wait. Friendly staff always make me feel welcome. The hygienists and dentist have always been gentle and great about telling me what I should be improving without making me feel talked down to or lectured. I definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for a great place to get their teeth taken care of.

Orlando V. from Portland, OR (Source: Yelp)


I have had a Yelp account for awhile just to read reviews but after my visit to this dental office I decided that I had to make an effort to write them a review for their excellent service and care. I was skeptical booking an introductory $59 cleaning assuming it was going to be a basic quick clean and I would leave with a basic cleanse with some X-rays to assure myself my teeth wouldn’t be falling out anytime soon. My mother had just added me to her health plan and I wanted a cleaning before a vacation. I was bummed that they did not take my insurance but proceeded with the cleaning. They have a first time visitor $59 exam, x ray and cleaning special. After being welcomed by the lovely ladies up front, I was introduced to a dentist who asked great questions and explained the process. After X-rays and brief inspection of my gums and teeth, they offered me an estimate on some work that I needed done now and in the near future. They did not pressure me at all to proceed with any of their recommended work but did offer me a payment plan If i did want to proceed. Which is great for those who don’t have insurance or money up front to pay for it all at once. I do believe they run a credit check for large amounts for financing/payment plan. After I declined their services except for the cleaning I was assuming I would get a decent cleanse but they went above and beyond that. The dentist that cleaned my teeth was very nice and didn’t make me feel embarrassed or uncomfortable about my neglected mouth and did one of the best jobs cleaning my teeth that i’ve ever experienced. She was a perfectionist which is great when you are dealing with someone’s personal hygiene/body/health. She offered advice and made the whole process painless. Thank you for your service, I will definitely be recommending you to friends and family.

Very personable and professional staff, extremely satisfied with the level of care I received and the explanations of cost, treatment, and continued care. I could not have asked for a better experience! I absolutely will be returning for all dental work I need now and will need in the future. The dentist (Dr Sasse) is one of the best I’ve ever had the pleasure of interacting with. I also have to give a shoutout to their hygienist Ms Kozak. Ms Kozak is in a league of her own and I hope she stays at this practice for the entirety of my continued treatment at this location. I literally have nothing even remotely negative to say about this place. Even the receptions and everyone else that work the front desk are amazing. If you’re looking for a top notch experience for dental work, this is where you need to go.
