On-time, friendly, courteous and very professional. The visit went just as I had expected. I’ve been a patient at Paradigm Dental of Beaverton for over 30 years, and I would not go anywhere else. I highly recommend Dr. Rust and his entire staff!

Had the opportunity to use a new laser device in use for (among other things) cavity removal. The entire process took about 12 minutes from sitting in the chair and I didn’t even need local anesthetic! They always have the most updated technology and really show patients they care.

Kellen M. - Portland, Oregon

I highly recommend Paradigm Dental! From the front office staff, to the hygienist, to Dr. Rust (basically all employees you come in to contact with) everyone is professional, friendly, and the office makes you feel at home. It’s nice to go in to an office where they remember your name and you don’t have to sit in a lobby with 20 other people (there might be one other person.) Another plus is that they can almost do everything right there in their office. There is no need to run around town getting consultations and appointments with specialty dentists. Who has time for that? They also have the latest dental equipment right there! Did I mention that I live in SE Portland and still drive to Beaverton for my dental needs? I definitely recommend Paradigm!
