    “I love this place! I actually grew up going to Brunswick Dental Health Associates with Dr. LeBourdais and I never wanted to leave because I've always had great experiences there. Since I no longer live near Brunswick, I needed to find a new dentist and a coworker recommended Portland North Dental. Turns out Dr. DeRice and Dr. LeBourdais went to school together, so I suppose I shouldn't be surprised that they both have such great offices! From the moment I walked in, Christine at the front desk made me feel welcome as a new patient with her smile and upbeat personality. She answered all my questions and went above and beyond to help me schedule my appointments and made sure I had written estimate prices of what I would pay out of pocket (after insurance) for my cavity fillings . Both of my cavity fillings were done by Dr. Pochebit and assisted by Katrina. They both made me feel very comfortable through the whole process (which was actually a painless experience). Dr. Pochebit took the time to explain things to me and he always made sure to ask me if I had any questions after the fillings. Katrina took great care of me in the dentist chair, checking in on me through the procedure to make sure I was doing okay. I enjoyed talking to them and it is clear that the staff has family-like relationships that are refreshing to see in a dental office. Lastly, I must mention my dental cleaning with Shana. She was amazing! From start to finish, she kept me updated on what she would be doing and what I was comfortable with. I felt like she genuinely cared about my dental hygiene and she made me feel like I had a beautiful smile. After the cleaning, she took the time to show me how I could improve my brushing and the difference it could make if I use an electric toothbrush. My teeth felt so smooth and clean when it was all done. I have not had a chance to meet Amanda yet, but I hear she is awesome as well. I had a small interaction with Ramon in passing, but that's all it took to conclude that he has a good sense of humor and a cheerful personality. You all have made my transition to this dental office very easy and I applaud you for the wonderful team you have and the work that you do. ” - Crysta Frost

From the front desk to the actual dental visit all were exceptional! Dr. Pochebit was very knowledgeable as was his assistant Katrina. I look forward to a long relationship with them. ” - Larry D.

    “Dr. DeRice is incredibly knowledgeable and I completely trust him. He has a good sense of humor, and he spends as much time as you need answering questions. His assistant, Ramon, is easy going, gentle, smart, and also has a great sense of humor. He even gave me advice for a cruise I'm about to take! He made the "flipper" for the tooth I had pulled and it was amazing. You couldn't tell at all that I had something other than my real tooth. Then there's Christine, the office manager/receptionist. She is amazing! She works very hard to save me money through my insurance and does whatever she possibly can to schedule appointments that meet my schedule. She makes me laugh and even though she's very professional, she doesn't mind joking around. Great office, great people to see for a not such a fun reason!” - Pam Kilborn

    “I recently experienced a fracture of a tooth and managed to lose an older crown. This was clearly unexpected, and I certainly did not expect to get an appointment on short notice. Well, I should have known better. Dr. DeRice and his staff worked me into an afternoon appointment for an assessment for the same day I called! After the assessment, I was scheduled for a repair session within a few days! Many thanks to Dr. DeRice and his staff and also to the patient who likely gave up a slot so that I could receive treatment!! I have every confidence that the repair will be of the same excellent quality that my family and I have received over the years!” - Gary R.
