Testimonials

What our patients say about us

  • Dear Sandra: Patient loyalty probably goes hand-in-hand with the attributes of respect, confidence, comfort, friendship and a host of other descriptors that explain how a patient feels about their dentist.  As you know, I see patients from a number of excellent dentists throughout this area and elsewhere but in my opinion you inspire the greatest amount of patient loyalty that I can recall.  You have earned this loyalty by your compassionate and skillful care of your patients and you have obviously earned their respect as well as mine.

    - Eric J. Dierks, MD, DMD, FACS

  • Most people dread going to the dentist because they're fearful of pain, particularly with the shots.  Dr. Menashe understands that, which is why she is so good at keeping her patients comfortable and pain free.  Honestly, she gives the best shots in town and best of all, they're pain free!

    - Lindsey B.

  • I would like to offer a testimonial to Dr Menashe's excellent dentistry.  She embodies everything that I would want in a dentist. She is friendly. Her work is impeccable.  She has my complete trust.

    - Dr. Les Goldmann

  • Dr. Menashe always gets me numb. One dentist after another said I was hard to numb and proceeded to drill while I was in pain. Not Sandra. She's a pain-free dentist.

    - Jacqueline S.

  • Dr. Menashe had been my dentist for less than a year when I suffered a nasty fall requiring major treatment and restoration.  Already I had great confidence in her professional skills, but her willingness to see me on an emergency basis then to usher me through weeks of reconstruction were further proof of dedication to her patients and her profession. She rebuilt my smile, using both her experience and her compassion, and I will be forever grateful to her.   Her entire team mirrors her commitment to the practice of dentistry!

    - Nancy J.

    - Scott S.

  • When I moved here from Ohio in '98, I knew nobody. I got Dr. Menashe's number from JUST OUT and it was "the luck of the draw" to find someone who is such a good fit. I hate going to the dentist but Sandra and her crew have always made me feel comfortable and as relaxed as possible as well as getting me in quickly when I've had a dental problem to be looked at. She even laughs at my corny jokes, HOW GREAT IS THAT! Consider her hightly recommended from this very satisfied patient.

  • Before moving to Portland in 1998, I'd already had a long and difficult dental history, in spite of good brushing habits, thanks in part to having braces. Sandra and her team have consistently done their best to preserve and maintain the teeth I have and to provide good, helpful advice on specific issues that have arisen. They have been pleasant, congenial and engaged and I continue to appreciate their professional assistance. Thanks to Sandra and the rest of the crew.

  • Dr. Menashe has been my dentist for over 20 years.  She and her staff have consistently provided me with excellent dental care.  Her approach to integrating dental care as part of a patient's overall good health and well-being makes good sense! I have recommended her many times over the years. Top Notch!

  • Dr. Sandra Laniado Menashe has been my dentist since she began her private practice at this Portland location. She was also my parents’ dentist and my son’s dentist, and I have nothing but praise for the care, personal attention, and professionalism I’ve experienced in her office. Because I have great confidence in Dr. Menashe’s skills, experience, and knowledge, I never second-guess or doubt her recommendations. It’s paid off! My teeth are in great shape, and, thanks to the staff’s friendliness and competence, every office visit has been a good one. I feel fortunate to have a provider I trust so completely.

    - Joanne S.

  • I’ve been seeing Dr. Menashe for over 7 years now. I always appreciate her wisdom and care -- I’m confident she that she does exactly what’s right for me, every time.
