Summit Dental Testimonials

Words hardly express how grateful I am to this entire office for the quality of care you have provided me! Your willingness to provide excellent care and your true concern for my health and well-being touched my heart and my life in so many ways, much beyond simple dental care. Visiting your office lifted my spirits during a difficult time in my life and helped to increase my self-confidence and gave me hope for my future. I am forever indebted to you all for being extraordinary people! Your passion toward your craft and toward clients is truly remarkable! I love visiting the dentist’s office, truly! A.N.

We recently moved to Beaverton and the entire family are happy new patients of Summit Dental! The staff is warm, friendly, and professional. We have been very pleased with the quality of care. The flexible scheduling is very convenient. We also appreciate our appointments running on time. Thank you! V.F

I have worked in the dental field all my life and Dr. Hagedorn and staff are the best ever. I would not change a thing about their professionalism, enthusiasm and investment in sterling patient care. I feel so grateful to have found Summit Dental. L.B.

I haven’t been to the dentist in over 10+ years because honestly I do not like going. I have had some horrible experiences in my past. I went to Dr. Hagedorn only because of a special promotion for new patients and because I knew it was time for me to have an exam and to see the dentist on a regular basis. Dr. Hagedorn and his staff were extremely sensitive to my dentist phobia and made sure I was comfortable and relaxed. They were all wonderful! I had an initial exam, a cleaning, and even had a filling done in my visit, which I would never had agreed to before had I not been so sure that I was in the best of care. I am so happy to have found a dentist that I do not mind seeing on a regular basis. I highly recommend Summit Dental and Dr. Hagedorn! S.D.

Excellent, I felt safe and well taken care of! D.C.

My appointment went very smoothly. I especially appreciated watching Dr. Hagedorn use the CAD system to design my crown. This was most informative and interesting. Also, Thanks to Marni for getting my Text and email contacts working correctly on the Summit Dental system. As always, I’m impressed by the professional and efficient staff and friendly atmosphere of the office. Thanks! D.S.

The entire staff at Summit Dental is wonderful, with a winning combination of being extremely professional, efficient, friendly and caring. J.B.

My recent experience both for cleaning and for a broken crown repair were both positive. I will gladly be treated by the same dental tech and hygienist again. A.M.

Everyone is very welcoming and kind. L.W.

We feel lucky to have found Dr. Hagedorn and staff! The office has a wonderful relaxed atmosphere and it definitely makes coming in an enjoyable experience. J.B.

My husband and I love this office! Everyone is so friendly and we always enjoy our visits! Dr. Hagedorn makes everyone feel at ease and creates a great environment. A.H.

Feels like part of the office family. J.M.

I have had such a positive experience with all of the staff members that I have met, and everyone makes you feel like family. I also had never had a pain free cleaning before coming here, so thank you for making my trips to the dentist so pleasant. I no longer dread. V.H.

He is professional, personable, and a top notch dentist. Enough said. D.B.

We appreciate your one-on-one attention to our concerns and needs. L.K.

I have always had awesome service from this office even before Dr. Hagedorn took over. I will admit I was nervous with a new dentist, I had gone to Dr Layne for years. However, the care I have received from Dr. Hagedorn has been incredible. From calling to check up on me, to emergency visits on off days, he and Julie have been incredible. I have always had awesome experiences with Natalie and Marni as I have seen them for years. But this past year have gotten to know Julie better because of some more work I needed done and she, like all the other staff is an absolute star. In my opinion, Dr. Layne set a very high bar and Dr. Hagedorn has exceeded that. I.H.

As a long time patient of Dr. Layne, I have seen Dr. Hagedorn once or twice for check-ups, but today was the first dental procedure Dr. Hagedorn has done for me. I’m already a fan! I wasn’t looking forward to two hours in the chair, but with the new technology he’s using it was very comfortable, very easy and I actually learned a lot. I’ve always enjoyed the office staff and will happily remain a patient right here in Cedar Mill. Thanks to the whole team! M. F.

I really love how much care and attention goes into each appointment. Each staff member I interact with always remembers me, and remembers what I’m doing in life! They check up on how school and family is going, and take the time to listen to my concerns and check out each one. Natalie is always my hygienist and she is FANTASTIC, always nice and professional, and she does a great job cleaning my teeth. Dr. Hagedorn is very meticulous and checks everything to make absolute sure that there is nothing wrong. From when you first walk in the door, to when you leave, you feel like everyone really cares about what they do, and about you. I live in Saint Helens, but I still travel all the way down there because this is truly the best dentist’s office that anyone could ask for! Thank you guys! N.C.

Dr. Hagedorn and his staff have been the most pleasant and professional dental staff I have experienced in quite some time. My family has moved often and we have had several dentists. At Summit Dental, I could not be happier with the care and attention my whole family has received. I highly recommend Summit Dental. J.D.

Dr. Hagedorn is by far the best dentist I’ve ever seen, and I’m no spring chicken! From Marni at the front desk, to Julie and Kathy, each and everyone of them are exceptional!! I have never had a dentist be as caring and thorough as Dr Hagedorn. He explained everything he was doing, gave me great dental advice, made sure I was doing okay and comfortable constantly. He is so personable and remembers what he did the last time you saw him, and makes sure everything is still okay. He really cares about his patients. Bar none, Dr Hagedorn and his staff is the best around! C.S.

I was greatly impressed with the professionalism, quality, and cleanliness of Summit Dental. All aspects of my care, from scheduling to cleaning, were handled with promptness, care, and attention to detail. What really made the difference to me was the attitude of all the staff – everyone was incredibly friendly and kind. I would highly recommend Summit Dental. D.K.

As a previous patient of Dr. Layne’s – Dr. Hagedorn made the transition seamless. They are a wonderful office with such knowledgeable staff. Thank you so much for all the wonderful care you have given both myself and my daughters. Thank you! L.P.

I love coming here. My first visit was easy and painless. When it came time for fillings I declined a numbing agent and was pleased it did not hurt as much as I anticipated. I love the staff. T.W.

I am from Kansas City and was in Portland last week visiting family for Thanksgiving. The holiday left me with a popped off crown, and not a lot of options. Friday morning my aunt drove me to the nearest dentist’s office, which just happened to be Summit Dental. The office was closed, but I called and left a message for the dental emergency. Dr. Hagedorn returned my call in less that ten minutes, and set an appointment with me for less than an hour later. My tooth was extremely sensitive, and Dr. Hagedorn did everything he could to ease the pain. He was friendly, caring, and quick to answer my questions. He listened to my concerns, and offered sound advice. My dentist in Kansas City always seems to be too busy to care about my concerns, so it was nice to have someone listen, and show genuine care. If I have a procedure done in the future, I just might make an appointment with Dr. Hagedorn for the next time I visit my family! I am truly thankful for his devotion to his practice, great work, and kind personality. B.C.

I find the personnel to be very efficient and very professional. Also friendly and provide excellent care. I will recommend your practice to anyone. P.H.

You will receive a warm reception and friendly, gentle care from Dr. Hagedorn and his wonderful team. My daughter had her first visit with Dr. Hagedorn, and he spent over 25 min. chatting with us so that we could get to know him and he us. My daughter and I felt very comfortable and relaxed. We have been with Dr. Layne’s practice for 9 years and look forward to having our dental care needs met by Dr. Hagedorn from here on. M.O.

I’m so very thankful I found a friendly dental ‘family’ at Summit Dental. Dr. Layne is an expert dentist and I feel like a real Princess with my beautiful crowns (LOL). Dr. Hagedorn is also a wonderful dentist and I’m looking forward to more of his future dentistry. It’s the most friendly dental practice I’ve encountered, and the warm rinse water is the BEST! All the hygienists make me feel very welcome and do a fabulous job too. Love the movies… No pain at this practice. Big thanks to everyone at Summit Dental. J.C.

Everyone on your staff has been very friendly and accommodating to my needs and even though I have not been a fan of going to dentists; You all have made the experience comfortable and assuring. L.A.

I have a healthy mouth (teeth and gums, etc.) because I have received wonderful dental care from the staff at Summit Dental. They always have welcoming smiles and their attention to detailed dental care is professional and preventative – Always gentle, informative, and educational. They personally care about my health! J.H.

Thoughts: In all my visits so far to Summit Dental, I have received great care from Dr. Layne, Dr. Hagedorn, and their staff. Whether it was for a regular cleaning or to have my front tooth fixed (that my dog chipped by jumping on me …), I have had a very pleasant experience each and every time! D.K.

We moved here from Texas a little over 2 yrs ago and didn’t have a dental office for my children to continue their dental care. I drove by your office one day and thought the location was convenient. I walked in to ask some questions and find out if our insurance would be accepted. I received a very warm, personable, and friendly response from my spontaneous visit. I made appointments for my two children and have even needed an emergency visit for my son as well. We have had nothing but exceptional treatment from both Dr. Layne and Dr. Hagedorn. You have also been wonderful to work with me on the out-of-pocket expenses that the insurance has not covered and most offices are not as flexible and in our economy and our financial circumstances, for that I am grateful. You guys are wonderful! J.P.

I broke a tooth and had found out I did not have dental insurance. I was calling several dental offices and was not having much help regarding insurance and how soon I could be seen, etc. When I called and spoke with Marni she was fantastic. She took her time explaining to me the differences in insurances as well as what to watch out for, she also explained that Dr. Hagedorn could probably temporarily fix my tooth until I decided on what to do about payment and insurance. I was very happy with this as all the other dental practices acted as if I was a nuisance. She got me in to see Dr. Hagedorn the next day. I am a big baby when it comes to dental work and was extremely pleased with the kindness and patience Dr. Hagedorn had with me. He and his assistant were very conscientious of my every move and they explained everything to me as we went along. I ended up having to have a crown and that went very smoothly. I later went in to have my teeth cleaned was equally pleased as to how easy and comfortable that was. To get me in that chair again within a few weeks of major dental work says something about this staff! I am extremely pleased and very thankful to Dr. Hagedorn. P.A.

After being Dr. Layne’s patient for many years, I was concerned when I learned that he was turning his practice over to a new dentist. I’ve always appreciated Dr. Layne’s skills and his manner with me. It didn’t take long for me to realize that he chose a wonderful successor to the practice. Dr. Hagedorn makes a great connection with me as the patient, and is also bringing new ideas that I appreciate. My concerns quickly dissolved into continuing confidence, satisfaction and gratitude. B.S.
I have been a patient of Dr. Layne’s for my entire adult life. I have received nothing but excellent care from Dr. Layne and his staff. I met Dr. Hagedorn last time I was in for my 6-month cleaning and I was impressed with his thoroughness. He is a wonderful addition to the practice. K.H.

The office is very efficient — no long waits for the dentist and the hygienists take time to do a good cleaning and provide tips and advice. Marni the office manager makes sure patients are not surprised by the cost of procedures by pre-authorizing procedures and providing estimates before any work is scheduled. M.L.
