Best dentist I've ever been to! He was recommended by our orthodontist and I am so grateful we found him! I have had to have some extensive dental work and he has done an amazing job! He is honest, meticulous, cautious and gentle. His staff is professional, kind and so friendly. For the first time in my life I don't mind going to the dentist and actually, most the time, enjoy it.

Thank you Dr. Dutro and Staff!

Dr. Dutro has the best hands that I've ever seen. Does the work correct the first time for me, quick and efficient. No jerking the lip while giving shots, no "whoops" while drilling due to tired hands, etc.

My long—time dentist retired. A neighbor recommended Dr. Dutro.

Funny how you just settle when you don't pay attention. Change is a good thing, and boy, did I come out of the dark ages of medicine and step into the present evolution. A real good thing!

No more toxic amalgamated fillings or fuzzy black and gray X-rays.

No more hygienists who talk more than they attend to your teeth, and ask questions they expect you to answer with your mouth full of instruments and suction tubes.

Dr. Dutro is a compassionate dentist who has a good chair-side manor, and uses the latest technology to care for your teeth. He is good at explanations and presenting solutions and/or alternatives when work needs to be done.

His staff is pleasant, knowledgable and considerate.

His office is comfortable, clean, and as inviting as an office of its kind can be ;-)

Your teeth are something really special. I trust Dr. Dutro to help me take care of mine.

Initially I discovered this dentist from Portland Monthly magazine; I'm not exactly sure what the criteria is based on to qualify as the Best Dentists of Portland—but I definitely agree. The staff was friendly and helpful. and it is obvious that Dr. Dutro knows a lot about teeth. They make decisions for the best interest of the patient— doing procedures if it is necessary This is probably the best dentist I have been to in my life, I can't recommend this office enough.
