What Our Patients Say
“Today's visit was for a cleaning with Palak. She is very professional, friendly and does a terrific job. She takes the time to educate me on proper dental hygiene or possible new tricks for healthier teeth and gums. Both Palak and Dr. Christensen have made what was once a very scary encounter for me (with a previous dental ofc.), a pleasant experience and have restored my confidence in going to the dentist. I highly recommend Palak and Dr. Christensen.”
“Since my teeth have started getting sensitive, I don't particularly look forward to going to the dentist. That being said, Dr. Christensen is great and Palak is the best hygienist; they make an excellent team! They are very cognizant of the sensitivity and do a great job keeping my teeth healthy. They're are just all around nice people, although I like to stick to just seeing them every 6 months! :)”
“Been coming here for years. They are efficient and do things right the first time. My dentist and my dental hygienist are like family friends.”
"I recently had to have many visits to Gentech. The staff was always friendly. The visits were always conducted swiftly and thoroughly. I am a new patient there and will continue to use this location in the future. As well as recommend them to my friends and family. Thanks Gentech!"
"Dr. Watanabe was such and excellent dentist! I had my fears going in for a root canal and him and the rest of the staff made the experience so comfortable. Later that day Dr. Watanabe even called to check up on me and see if I had any question. I have never had better dental care, thank you Dr. Watanabe and staff!!"
"Absolutely love the staff. They have been totally accommodating to my pregnancy even calling to check on me after my appointment!"
"Love them. Always very friendly. I’ve been going there for years. They are like family."
"I've been going here since about 2001, and I never worry about it. Today I had a few unsightly stains that were quickly removed. :-)"
"I've going to Gentech for around 15 years or so. Staff is friendly and welcoming. Appointments are always on time. If you need follow up you leave the office knowing what to expect financially."
"I am 45 and never liked the thought of seeing a dentist. With that said, I want to share my experience. Three months ago, my top-right wisdom tooth began to hurt. Several weeks passed and it became loose while the pain progressed until I couldn't even think. I finally called Gentech and they scheduled me for the next day. The people there were very nice and did not judge the condition of my teeth. I am a diabetic and well, things happen...I was in so much pain that I could barely fill out the questionnaire. It seemed to me that every staff member could feel my pain. They were sympathetic and did well to inform me about what was to happen. I was in and out within an hour and as I walked to my car, I thought about doing a cartwheel, but that would have just been stupid! I recommend this office to anyone who has reserved feelings about seeing a dentist. In fact, I have scheduled a checkup and will make this clinic my dentist of choice."
"Dr. Goodman is an excellent dentist who is very knowledgeable and kind. Jennica is an outstanding dental hygienist who puts you right at ease with her strong skill set and attentive "chair side" manor. I highly recommend them both."
"I recently broke one of my front tooth veneers. Dr. Watanabe and assistant Zhanna were awesome through the process of replacing the veneer! It was only 4 days until I got the new one. They went above and beyond what I expected, even got me an appointment at the dental lab for a custom match to my other tooth. They are professional, very knowledgeable and skilled, and genuinely nice people! Highly recommended!"
"I have been to more than 10 dentists in my lifetime and this office is by far the best. Everyone from the gal at the front desk to the dentist makes you feel important. Deanna is a wonderful hygienist who makes an effort to get to know you and does a great job at screening for dental concerns."
"Best. Dentist. Trip. Ever. Getting cavities filled is normally the worst, but Dr. Goodman's painless touch and wizard hands made this experience comfortable and as enjoyable as this could possibly be. I listened to a podcast while Dr. Goodman was working on me and was almost upset when it was over and I had to leave because I still had a few minutes left in the podcast and I was so comfortable. On a scale of one out of five, I'd give it a ten. I'm thinking about having my next birthday party here."
"Dr. Terry and his assistant Lisa are the best. I was having issues with my blood pressure preventing them from replacing my bridge. Lisa did everything she can to make sure I was comfortable. They actually had to send me home the first time. This tells me that they are not just about the money. They actually care for my entire well-being."
"Dr Goodman is the best! :) He has helped me out and worked with me."
"I never thought I'd be giving a dental office 5 stars but Dr. Barghouti has been able to break through my phobia of dentists and done a beautiful job of restoring my teeth. He is beyond gentle and a very nice man. His staff are simply great. If you need dental work done, I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Barghouti."
"I am not a person who typically raves about my dentist but the level of service and care I received was amazing. The staff was understanding and willing to assist any way they could. I am embarking on a yearlong trip tomorrow and I was worried about not being the able to get any dental work I needed done, because today was the only time they had available to book me. But with luck and the fantastic staff to help me along, my teeth were examined, clean, and filled in a very short amount of time. When I come back, I will absolutely be staying with this office."
"I have been going to Gentech Dentist on SW Madacam since last year and am quite satisfied. The employees answer my many questions, treat me with courtesy, and do a thorough job. I especially have to compliment Dr. Nguyen for her care in getting my mouthguard just right. I was very skeptical that I could sleep with it, especially since I sometime sleep in the afternoons for my part-time professional graveyard shift job, but I adjusted to using the mouthguard right away. As a matter of fact, it feels like a nice hug for my teeth and should keep them healthier longer."
"I was very impressed with my experience at Gentech. All the staff were very professional and very helpful. I was reassured and comforted, along with getting all my dental needs met. I would recommend Gentech to anyone with dental needs. I rate it 10/10"
"I am a regular client of Palak (dental hygienist) for my teeth cleaning. I would recommend her because she is very efficient and gentle. Palak makes the experience as pleasant as possible and really cares about her clients. I've had several hygienists over the years and she is very expert at making the procedure as painless as possible. I'm a little dental phobic and her calm manner is very helpful."
"For years I avoided going to the dentist, but finally had to. I found Gentech and have been extremely happy ever since. I have referred others to them because of the very excellent care my family and I have received. From the doctors and hygienists to the support staff, everyone is welcoming, helpful and efficient. No more being left waiting in a chair forever because of disorganization or a dentist who is more concerned with churning through patients by treating 3 or 4 at the same time, which is what we experienced at our former dental provider."
"As always, my visit today was a breeze! Everyone – from the receptionist to the hygienist to my dentist, Dr. A. – is friendly and genuine in their interactions with me. Costs are given up front. There have never been any ‘surprises’ in that department. The work/services are always professional. Yet, we all still manage to have a fun time. Yes! A fun time at the dentist! I can’t imagine going anywhere else."
"This group is the best! I was deathly afraid to go to a dentist again, following a horrible experience with a previous dentist…when I came to Gentech, the dentist and his assistant explained everything that they were going to do, were very gentle and ensured I was comfortable throughout the treatment. I now feel confident and cared for and my fears have subsided. I would highly recommend Gentech to anyone who is looking for a very professional and passionate group to take great care of your and your family’s dental needs."
"The office staff at Gentech Portland is friendly, efficient and helpful. Dr. Goodman (my dentist) and Dr. Nguyen (my periodontist) are excellent. They are very professional, dedicated, good at explaining things, and never in a rush. They do their work with great care and respect."
"Smooth, painless, effective. The dentist is awesome and the assistants are rock stars:). Definitely recommend these guys n gals!!!"
"Gentech Dentist Hillsboro is the best dental office. I have been coming to this office seeing Dr Barghouti for over a year now. I left my old dental office down the road just due to the staff. I feel very comfortable at Gentech Dentist Hillsboro. Dr Barghouti is an awesome dentist, he makes me feel very welcome. He is very thorough and passionate about his work. Also Edward is great! He is also very thorough when explaining what to expect during my procedures and answering all my questions. He is great with patients! Everyone at Gentech Hillsboro is amazing! Great staff, I will definitely refer friends and family to this office."
"My entire family has been going to this office for dental care for over 5 years now, and we have always found that every staff member goes above and beyond general expected courtesy. They are very helpful, kind, friendly, and do a great job not only with a treatment, but also in working with you on billing and appointments. I would most definitely recommend this office to anyone looking for great dental care!"
"I've been coming to gentech since I moved to Oregon 7 years ago. I just love them! Every experience is great and I never feel like I'm getting the run around! I would definitely recommend them to others."
"I have been to 4-5 dentist offices in my life, and this has been by far the best experience. The staff is friendly, competent, and punctual. Most importantly, they never try to push services on me that I don't need. Dr. Bhargouti is great."
