It is certainly a significant advantage being able to count on the staff to respond to such situations in an effective manner.

    “Just like last time, The doctor got the job done without creating unnecessary expense. He applied extra anisthetic when needed. I’ll definitely be back again and again as more of my remaining teeth rot out and need to be extracted. Great job and I can’t emphasize enough how much I appreciate the no nonsense, get it done approach that I get when I come here. I only wish I could afford some implants because I’d get those done here too.” - Mark Lapierre

    “Before my appointment I was definitely a bit anxious. I had such horrible experiences as a child going to the dentist that it’s kept me at bay for some time now. Immediately upon entering the facility I was greeted by a friendly face. She was inviting and very kind. The young lady who took my x-rays was also very polite, and professional. Dr. DeRice. What can I say? Clearly knowledgable about what he is doing. Kind, comforting, and professional. I am very happy to have chosen Portland North and Dr. DeRice. I am confident in his/their ability to take care of my dental needs. Thank you for putting me at ease today!” - Jacob

    “This was my first visit to Portland North Dental Associates. I was made to feel I had been a regular there for years. After a great reception and filling out some initial forms, I was taken into X-Ray and professionally explained to, what was to happen with the latest state of the art equipment. After a series of X-Rays were taken, Dr. De Rice met with me and explained a number of options that would improve the qulaity of my smile and how the procedures would take place, length of time and a cost analysis. Professional, personal and very down to earth. Great first impression of both he and entire staff. A home run to say the least and I am looking forward to having my teeth taken care of by Portland North Dental Associates. Respectf…” - Anonymous

    “I have been to see Dr. DeRice several times in the past but hadn’t been in for a few years. I was pleased to see that my experience was just as satisfying as all the others were previously. The staff is always very nice and attempt to make you as comfortable as possible. Dr. DeRice has been my favorite dentist out of all those I have seen over the years. I have experienced other dentists who are condescending, easily frustrated with a patient or talk to you like you’re a child. Dr. DeRice does none of this, he’s always nice and very straight forward which I appreciate. I am obviously no expert on dentistry but from a patient perspective he does excellent work. I definitely plan to stick with Dr. DeRice for any of my dental needs in the…” - Rick Dussault

    “As a new patient, I really appreciated the friendliness of everyone in the office. The receptionist, hygienist and Dr. DeRice all took their time to make sure all my questions were answered and I felt comfortable with a plan in place for future appointments before I left the office. I also appreciated how accommodating and pleasant they were to my young daughter. They made her feel very welcome, and watched her in the waiting room while I had my x-rays, then allowed her to come sit on my lap (and even found her an age-appropriate show on tv) while the dentist examined my teeth and talked with me. Their flexibility and understanding was very meaningful to me, as a mom and as a patient. Thank you!” - Charity

My invoices are printed out on a timely basis and I know exactly what I am responsible for. It is also extremely important to have a dentist and support staff that are ready to provide emergency services when the need arises.
