Friendly, fun, informative dentist!!
We visited Dr. Porter’s office on a field trip earlier this year which made our first dentist appointment a bit less frightening experience. The entire staff was so friendly and made the entire dentist appointment a fun learning experience for my daughter. I highly recommend this office and can promise you that your kid will have a fun and exciting time. As we were leaving my daughter asked when can we come back!? Thank you Dr. Porter and staff!!

Dr Porter and his staff are so good to us!
My children love coming to get their teeth cleaned because it’s such a great experience with Dr Porter. They count down to their next visits. We are thankful to have found such a kind and thorough dentist. The hygienists are patient and make the experience fun, and the front desk staff are warm and welcoming. Can’t say enough good things!

We love this place!
Our son has been coming since he was just a toddler. He's now in 7th grade and just had an appointment to get braces put on. As always, Dr. Porter and his staff was encouraging and made my son feel special. Dr. Porter is an amazing doctor who spends time answering questions and explains details to his patients and parents. We are grateful!

Son was afraid of going to the dentist before dr Porter
My son Harper did not enjoy going to the dentist before we found Dr Porter. Harper is now looking forward to appointments and excited to do his brushing routine.

It is so fun to have a friendly place where we can excite our young patients about caring for their teeth! There are NO televisions in the ceiling here...we want the patients attention to educate them on the importance and technique of proper oral hygiene. Thank you

Thank you Dr. Porter!
My 11yo had a broken wire while we vacationed in Santa Cruz and the staff at Dr. Porter’s office was wonderful. This community is lucky to have an orthodontist like him!

Great with explaining procedures to the kids!
I really appreciate the way Dr. Porter addresses my daughter with questions and answers about her treatments. She feels involved in the process and that helps her feel comfortable and less nervous. Great dentist!

My kids love going to the dentist
The staff is friendly, Dr Porter makes them laugh - but also takes good care of their teeth, and encourages them to have great habits. And look at the title of this review- did you enjoy going to the dentist at 6? I know I didn’t!
Response from Brent J. Porter, DDS
We want the attention of our young patients to maintain an educational experience and just to make it fun. There are no television screens needed in the ceiling over our dental chairs.

Cedar loved his dentist appointment
My son has sound sensitivity and tactile sensitivity, but dr Porter accommodated his particular needs he left snlmiling and excited to use his new toothbrush and flossing tool. We are happy to be new patients of Dr Porter.
Response from Brent J. Porter, DDS
As an office, we feel so blessed to provide a child with their first dental experience. With a positive experience, a new patient is willing and motivated to go home and use those new teeth cleaning tools. Habits are born!! Yeah!! This is exactly why children are best served at a Children Dental Specialist!!
