I love, love, love this place!!!! The staff is so nice, and knowlegable. I have never had a Dentist or his Front Office explain things to me so thoroughly. I left there feeling relaxed and completely confident in the treatment that the Dentist had diagnosed. I highly, highly recommend this place. You walk in and you don't feel like your in a dental office, and it smells wonderful!
I wouldn't have the knowledge and skills I have today if it were not for Dr Kang. I was only able to work under his direction for a short amount of time but even how few months those were I owe most of my success to him. He has great knowledge of dental specialties, people skills and business management. One of the most important attributes I would hope to emulate would be his ability to lead a group. Thanks for your advice and friendship through the years George, GBU.
I came back again for my second appointment. still, they were really good to me and still, can't complain about anything besides having to go to a dentist to fix my teeth. one huge positive is that I like how they call me to check up on my status if I feel ok. another HUGE good thing is that this place was about $300 cheaper than when I had the same work done 2 years ago. so this office is on my save list.
THANK You Green Apple Dental! I am more than happy with my visit. I can really feel the difference in my everyday life now that I have gotten my teeth cared for and thanks to you for helping me to do it. If not for your wonderful office and careful dentistry I probably would be an unhappy person.
I chose Green Apple Dental because it is easily accessible to public transportation and has late hours. When I went for the first time, I was surprised at how friendly and knowledgeable all the staff were. The place is clean, the equipment is high-tech, and they make sure you are comfortable 100% of the time you are there. I've never been to a dentist that has taken the time to explain in detail what is happening in my mouth. I'm definitely very happy with the choice I made.
I finally found the office for Dr. Kang and wanted to say thank you for doing my root canal with the sleep dentistry last year. I have recently moved away for school and cannot find a spa-atmosphere dental office that does the hand paraffin treamtents with the other spa perks as well as providing the sleep dentistry at the same time. This is bad news for me because I need the work done and will not do the work with out sleep dentistry,the nitrous gas does not even work at all with me. I totally appreciate your office so much more now that it is too far to visit! I might need to fly into town just to see you again, plan to see your new office?
Let me preface my review...I ABHOR the dentist, as far as I am concerned this is a profession of sadists. Consequently I approach the dentist, the office and the entire dental experience with suspicion and derision.
That said, I must confess Green Apple Dental is not your typical dental office. The atmosphere was soothing (although I had sincere trepidation when I noted the office looked like a spa more than a dental clinic, "what unspeakable horrors were they hiding with the aromatherapy diffusers and paraffin wax treatments?") and the dentist - Dr. Bird was extremely patient with my surly demeanor and rather icy veneer. By the end of my initial visit, the bulk of my anxiety abated and I found myself laughing at his humor (unbelievable). He was extremely professional and took extra time to answer my questions. At check-out I anticipated an itemized bill carefully outlining all of the 'extras' that my insurance would not cover, thus leaving a gaping cavity in my purse. This was not the case (although they may bill you later I don't know this was my first visit but I am hopeful there are no financial demands to come in the mail). Additionally, the bite guard I elected to purchase was quite reasonable even with only partial coverage by my insurance). It is also worth noting my appointment was on a Saturday morning and there are evening appointments available as well. You can imagine this came as a surprise given my previous experience with dental offices was a four-day business week and one struggled to coordinate an appointment months in advance, just to find the office smelled like burnt enamel and dental fixative.
Thus it is with some reservation that I say this, but I believe this may be the one dental oasis on the planet where your dental delusions and hopes come true: it smells of lavender instead of fluoride, the atmosphere is calming instead of institutional green, the dentist and staff are young, fresh, energetic, dewy-eyed professionals, instead of some reincarnated version of Niccolo Machiavelli, and your dental care is followed by warm aromatherapy towels and scented lip balm. This is a good choice for a dental practice.
I was sold on Green Apple Dental after reading previous reviews. We live in Colorado and were looking for someone to remove my daughters 4 wisdom teeth. Knowing this would be an involved procedure I felt comfortable after reading current patient's reviews and after talking with Dr. Kang's office staff. The oral surgery went well. We were given specific care instructions by Dr. Kang's staff and then Dr. Kang reviewed them again. He could probably tell I was a worried mother!! We did need to call Dr. Kang because of nausea after the surgery. He was very helpful and kind. We were in Portland for a week to visit and for the surgery. We returned home to Colorado knowing that my daughter had the best treatment possible, with a very caring dentist and office staff. And that if there was ever any follow up treatment needed Dr. Kang was just a phone call away!
I've known Dr. Kang and his family for many years now. As a friend and a collegue, he is well known for his friendly personality and his knowledge and skill in dentistry. He is a well trained surgeon and a talented dentist. I'm very proud of his accomplishment. His office is beautifully decorated and his staffs are friendly, making the entire dental atmosphere welcoming and relaxing. Last but not least, Dr. Kang and his staffs provide to their patients the most updated, quality, and gentle dentistry, that even the most dental phobic patient will still feel relax. I highly recommend Dr. Kang to anyone.
Many congrats to George and Elizabeth Kang to your success!
I think Dr. Kang and his staff are doing a great job at making people feel good about having dental fillings done. I did not like having anything done at dental offices before but now I believe they have cured my awful dental anxiety. Dr. Kang gave me a special sleepy pill and I had my teeth fixed without any problems. I only have positive things to say about this office. Good tasting dental products and attentive staff.
I first went to Green Dental because I was very unhappy with Paramount Dental in West Linn. I met Dr. Kang and they completed my teeth cleaning in a very efficient manner within pleasant surroundings. The emphasis appears to be on comfort and using natural holistic ingredients. For what it may lack in "looking like a dental office" it makes up in quality of service and expertise.
3 months after my first visit with Dr. Kang, I returned to complain about a bump that had appeared in my upper gum line over night. I was very worried and anxious. Dr. Kang's staff was friendly and immediately set up an appointment the day of my complaint to come in. Dr. Kang did several x-rays of my upper jaw and discovered some very unusual anomolies along with three dead teeth that were 'virgin' teeth just 3 months prior. Without getting into further detail here, Dr. Kang,after 5 PM, was able to arrange an appointment for me with a very talented and wonderful Oral Surgeon the very next morning.
The Oral surgeon was able to fit me into his schedule and performed services that literally saved my life! The quick response time, efforts and professional contacts through Dr. Kang, in my humble opinion, go beyond the typical professionalism to provide services that exceed expectations. The courteousness of his staff and dental goods he offers are also equally exceptional. If not for Dr. Kang's observations, concerns, and recommendations, I can imagine it would have taken me many more weeks to get in front of a person with the expertise to treat my problem. I feel very fortunate, because I was put on the right track in less than 14 hours.
Based on my experience, I highly recommend Green Dental and Dr. Kang, without exception
I was doing some research online because I was in need of a dentist, wanted a new experience, and especially wanted an office in the downtown area. I came across Dr. Kang's Green Apple Dental and read some raving reviews and comments and decided to see for myself....
WOW, from the moment you walk in, everyone is accomodating, the atmosphere is highly condusive to relaxation; magazines, soothing music, comfy couches and chairs, nice lighting, Dr. kang is social and conversational, and the equipment is of the highest quality and techonogical adancement.
I got a parafin wax dip for my hands (I'm not admitting that easily considering most men my age, etc. probably wouldn't do this but in the dental environment) and had lavender oil on my temples while they used a cleaning technique that is void of scraping. That's right, NO scraping, it was a hydro-rotary tool that I really could barely hear and certainly didn't feel. An occasional spray of water on my face was the worst of it, if you could call it that.
Dr. Kang checks every system related to the mouth and head, palpates your throat and jaws, systematically checks your allignment and gums, and explains everything as you go. He is highly educated and accredited, experienced, personable, and a very likable guy in general. His staff was awesome and I am looking forward to my 6-month appointment.
HIGHLY HIGHLY recommended.
How cool is that, Dr. Kang himself is so invested in your comfort and joy of his office that he personally reviews and responds to these submissions. I had to add to this because I returned for my 6-month visit, 2nd visit total, the single most relaxing office I have ever been in. You feel as though you've just entered a quiet sanctuary of wholistic health and balance.
Okay-- a paraffin dip? Lavender oil on the temples? I-pod so you don't have to hear slurpy sucky sounds? A choice of lip balms for that yukky chapped feeling after a cleaning? What more do you need to know? Oh, how about a massage chair? I was bummed I didn't have a cavity-- no, really. I was.
