Great team at Dr. Porter's office. Has served us well over the years. Be aware that he uses nitrous oxide and Novocaine. My daughter had never had to have a cavity filled, so at 17, when she went in by herself, she was unaware what the nitrous was and I appreciate that they took the time to explain everything to her and had great communication with a teenager.

Dr. Porter is incredibly kind and thorough. He explains everything to my son and is empathetic. No t.v.s are needed here. The office is decorated in a surf decor and the children are given the standard prizes after their checkup. Are you the kind who flosses and brushes really well? Well, then congratulations! You just may be one of the lucky ones who get to enter their names in a raffle and walk off with a new cruiser! If you're not such a great brusher, no worries. You're still treated kindly. My son is not a flosser and he still is congratulated for just using a toothbrush and a post brush "wash". He does not need braces, so I can not comment on that type of service.

I cannot speak to the prices Dr. Porter charges because my insurance has always covered my costs (guess I have good insurance). What pleases me the most about Dr. Porter and his practice is his philosophy on intervention. Contrary to what some other reviewers have said, Dr. Porter has always erred on the side on non-intervention, specifically concerning orthodontics. He has cared for my daughter since the age of 4. At the age of 8, when several of her permanent teeth were coming in crooked, he kept telling us, "Let's wait and see what the teeth do before we start talking about braces." Sure enough, her teeth straightened out! I have always felt like Dr. Porter has the dental health of my daughter first and foremost in his mind and actions.

My son has only needed a dentist twice now but I am happy that we found Doc Porter. He has a great reception area and office. You can tell the Dr. likes children by the amount of art, toys and other comforting details within the office. I recommend his strongly.

My children both just had their 3rd visit with Dr. Porter, and he is a great dentist. You just can't say anything negative about him and his office staff. Has anyone been to a dentist lately? They are not cheap, but you are paying for an extremely important service. As someone with major teeth issues, I will pay the extra money to get things done right the first time and have it maintained rather than pay a cut rate dentist to do work I am going to have to have redone in 3 years. The raffle thing is a great idea...I highly recommend him to any family!
