My family was lucky to use the services of the Van Orman dental group for many years; too many years to remember, but likely over 15 years. The service was very good when we started, but I believe it only got better over the years. Exemplary service: He left his house at midnight for an emergency extraction of a broken tooth, for which my daughter was in great pain. He even called the next day (weekend) to check up on her.
Dr. Van Orman is very professional and experienced, but he also kept learning as technologies evolved. Furthermore, the staff was always great, from the front office to the assistants and hygienists, but I believe they have also gotten even better over time. We always were well-informed of costs and insurance benefits in a timely fashion, and treated fairly. I wasn't the best patient, but they always treated me with positive encouragement and patience.
Unfortunately, we recently moved from Oregon and now hope we can find a dentist we can appreciate and trust as much as we did Dr. Van Orman. Since we were not personal friends outside the dental office, and are no longer in the area, we have no personal reasons for providing this recommendation except for our appreciation of Dr. Van Orman and his staff.
