Dr. Porter and his entire staff are super approachable, patient and friendly! Dr. Porter is very gentle and eased my son who was quite nervous, afterwards he said he didn't have any pain and feels great today and he had 2 1/2 teeth extracted! Thank you Dr. Porter and staff!

I have two children who both have Autism. When I was looking for a dentist, Dr. Porter came highly recommended by parents and professionals in the special education community.

My personal dentist also gave a recommendation. He said that Dr. Porter is wonderful. If he had young children, they would go to Dr. Porter.

Both of my children need special accommodations due to their disability. Dr. Porter goes out of his way to make my children as comfortable as possible. He also supports me, as a parent.

I whole heartedly recommend Dr. Porter to all families who are looking for a pediatric dentist.

My child wasn't informed about what was taking place at the appt. Also, when having her spacers put in, she was told that all she felt was pressure not pain....she knows when something hurts, her mouth was bleeding. Just because the tech said it wasn't painful doesn't make it so. I was really disappointed in this whole visit.

The staff is so friendly and very accommodating. The only issue with our last appt. was my daughter was given gas for a filling and I wasn't advised that was going to be done. I wouldn't have a problem with it, but I could've better prepared my child for the visit had I known.
