Temporary and replacement crown processes were perfect. Dr. Oakes and his team explained every detail and option, worked around my schedule, and it all turned out great.

Ed, Vancouver

Professional and competent, yet user friendly.

Dale P., Vancouver

Best experience i've ever had with a dentist! Dr. Oakes and his staff were very skilled, professional, and friendly. Very helpful in creating a treatment plan that was both effective, and budget friendly. 2 root canals with crowns, and i was in and out in no time! Didn't feel a thing :)

They are friendly, quick and responsive. The appointments are thorough and painless. They were helpful to call my insurance and to confirm what was covered and the cost. The facility and amenities are simple. They seem to know their stuff.

It is wonderful to be the patient of a dental clinic where Dr. Oakes and his entire staff take such pride in their work.

Teresa Clement, Vancouver

As always, I enjoy my visits to Dr Oakes. The entire staff is friendly and welcoming and Dr is always contentious of my comfort during procedures. He always remembers my anxiety issues with dental work and is very accommodating and checks frequently to see how I'm doing or if I need a break. Best dentist I've ever had! I highly recommend Oaks Family Dentistry to everyone!

Lyla D, Vancouver

The staff are always friendly and helpful, Dr. Oakes is great.

John Picco Jr, Vancouver Wa

mark c, vancouver

Dr. Oakes and his crew work well together. They make the patient feel relaxed, and the whole procedure is painless.

Mac , Vancouver

First experience with a same day Crown. No temporary and no return visit. Very, very nice. The dental assistants were friendly and skilled. The numbing experience was one of the easiest I've experienced. The whole experience (while not one we enjoy) was made easier by Dr. Oakes and his staff.

Becky Kornell, Brush Prairie

I’ve been seeing Dr. Oakes for over 10 years! Always feel welcomed and staff is always so friendly and personable :)

Georgia Bergman-Harper, Vancouver

Pleasant staff, good service.

Dawn R, Longview

We have been with Dr. Oaks for around 12 years. He has always given us A+ service! Would definitely recommend him!

Margaret Walmer, Vancouver

Very thorough dental hygienist, Bethany...Dr. Oakes was friendly and informative, Amina at the front desk was capable, efficient, and sweet.

Mark, Vancouver

I had a toothache that got worse over a couple of days - which led to an almost sleepless night. I called on a Thursday at 8am - as soon the office opened and Dr. Oakes was able to see me before noon that same day. After measures were taken, a follow up appointment was scheduled on the following Monday at 8am. I'm impressed with how staff did everything they could to get me in ASAP. Staff is very friendly and my experience with waiting room times over the past 2 years has been minimal. Great job! Thank you.

Stan , Hockinson

Had a tooth I was putting off for awhile, started to hurt and Dr. Oakes and his team got me right in. They had time in their schedule so I was able get my tooth fixed. I was blown away they were able to do a root canal and crown in one appt. I had the same treatment done years ago and recall several visits and had to take time off from work. This appointment was quick, painless and completed in about two hours. Thank your Oakes team, you have gained my family and will recommend your office to all my friends and family.

Erin, Vancouver

Dr. Oakes and his staff have done an amazing job! I've received two root canals and crowns so far, had no need for pain meds following and the crowns fit perfectly.

Nikki H, Vancouver

Takes the time to listen and everyone in the office cares a great deal that you have the best experience possible.

Ed B., Vancouver

Very easy to talk to, explains in e everyday english where possible. Envoirnment is friendly and welcoming. As any profession the tendency is to hurry to next project, but here you dont seem to be just a number. Reception and accounting works well with our insurance. For seniors without insurance the give discounts.

Debra, M., Camas

Dr. Oakes and his staff are very kind, professional and excellent at dental care. I have been coming to his office for several years and have always received excellent care. Really love the one day crown!

Thomas Soesbe, Vancouver

Always a great experience. The staff and Dr. are first rate. Jessie is always good for a laugh.

Angie C, Vancouver, WA

Dr Oakes and his staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and are caring. I’ve been going to him for many years and feel very safe and comfortable with his care. His office is clean and welcoming and his staff of hygienists and assistants are personable, easy to talk with and make you feel at ease. Great experience every time!

Carrie S., Kalama

I've seen a few dentists and staffs over the years, and this group is high quality. You are greeted cheerfully as you walk in the door, not made to wait very long, treated with respect and care, and happy with the outcome. I don't mind going every six months for cleaning and checkups, and my other dental needs are taken seriously and solved thoughtfully. Even if you have anxiety over dental care, you will be able to get it done!

Grant B, Vancouver

I am always treated well at Oakes family dentistry. I am completely satisfied with the friendly and extremely competent service they provide. I plan on being a patient there for many years tocome.

I usually hate going to dental offices since i was kid, had a horrible time back then as a kid. Now that my wife is in the dental field and she works with Dr Oakes, my fear has gone away. All thanks to Dr. Oakes and his staff. Dr Oakes is very friendly and his staff are very welcoming. Thank you for taking such good care of my teeth! I recommend Oakes Family Dentistry to everyone!! That is how good they are!!! (:

Mika Y., Vancouver

Had my first visit at Oakes Family Dentistry, and am so happy to have found such a great dental practice! Jessie conducted my new patient exam, including x-rays, and handled my cleaning. She was very thorough and thoughtful, and my teeth/gums definitely feel cleaner and healthier! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them, and am happy to have established a great dental office in the area. Thank you!

I have been coming to see Dr Oakes with my family for over 10 years I could not imagine going anywhere else, his staff is always friendly and helpful they always look like they are having fun there. DR Oakes takes his time with you and explain everything before he does any treatment. He's also not too bad of a singer

Lloyd P, Van

Thanks Dr Oakes and Jesse.

Auburn, Albany,OR

Very warm, friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Dr.Oakes and staff are welcoming and ensuring that you will have the best dental experience. I took my 5 year old son to get his kindergarten check-up, the assistants and Dr. Oakes were amazing with him. I will be coming back!!!

Chris C., Vancouver

It was a thorough & great experience.

Carol, Hockinson

Very warm and caring staff, they always go that little bit extra to take of their patients. I love how they work with my insurance and inform before they perform any procedure.

Cheryl K, Vancouver

I can always count on the staff at Oakes Family Dentistry to be friendly, respectful of my time, and take care of my dental needs. I'm particularly appreciative of how they work with our insurance to get us the most value.

Sher K, Vancouver

My friend recommended me to your office and I can't tell her thank you enough. I appreciated you and your staff for your patience and concern. I came in for a crown and you were careful to make sure my crown matched the color of the rest of my teeth. I appreciated your attention to details like that. I will recommend your office to my friends and family.

Thomas S., Vancouver, Wa.

Going to the Dentist has never been easier. Great Doctor and staff.

Heidi, Vancouver

Fun dental office.

Bonnie H, Vancouver WA

As usual, thanks to Jessie, my cleaning was efficient, very little discomfort and overall a pleasant experience (really).

Mark C., Vancouver

Dr. Oakes is a great Dentist and has a great crew. Everyone who works there knows their job well. They provide comfort for their patients and there is no pain at all. I have had much dental work done there and wouldn't think of going elsewhere.

Linda, Vancouver

Dr. Oakes is skilled, knowledgeable and engaged. Proactive in his approach he has replaced several fillings and installed a crown. Jesse is the best hygienist I have ever had and she has taught me how to care for my teeth between visits. Together they help me maintain great dental health and I highly recommend them both.

Sylvia J Luepke-Iben, Vancouver

I don't mind going to the dentist if I can go to Oakes Family Dentistry. Everyone is wonderful.

Lloyd , Vancouver

Dr Oakes Has been great over the past few years. Always on time and efficient. Jesse my Technician is the greatest and has done the best care I have ever had. Thanks to both for all your help . All the staff has been great. Highly recommended, Lloyd

Laurel C., Vancouver

Dr. Oakes and his staff get a 5 star! I have been going there for just under a year and several necessary procedures were done that should have been done years ago. They are gentle and patient and caring about their patient's needs and explain everything thoroughly. If you're contemplating a new dentist definitely consider them. I had been putting off getting crowns done and not only did he replace the damaged ones but I only had one visit to do it. They have current up to date equipment that actually made the crown while I waited. No temporary crown and separate appointments. All done in the office on one visit! I have also been in for two cleanings that were great as well. Wonderful office staff, assistants, and Doctor!

Stacy P, vancouver

Dr Oakes is the most caring and thoughtful dentist I have ever met.

Susan R., Battle Ground

Dr. Oakes and his staff are the best! I've been going there for many years and would never think of going anywhere else. I would highly recommend his office to anyone who is looking for a great family dentist.

Amina, Camas

Very happy with the friendly staff and skilled dentist. Office was very neat and clean.

Grant B., Vancouver

As always my visit was relaxing and quick. I am very pleased with Dr. Oakes, and his very fine ,friendly, and quite competent, staff.

Angie G., Vancouver

Dr. Oakes and his staff are great!! They were very kind to this new and very anxious patient!! Their kindness was much appriecated! Dentistry is awesome too!

Ron, Vancouver

Thank you for all your help today with my visit and guiding me through my insurance.

John and Carol Bruington, Vancouver

My husband and I have been fortunate to be patients for Dr. Oakes for 13 years. Dr. Oakes and his staff have always been very professional, knowledgeable , and considerate. They make every effort to attend to their patients in a caring, flexible, immediate way. Our thanks to the kind example Dr. Oakes has set for his entire staff, and we highly recommend their office for superior dental care.

Tina , Washougal

If you're looking for a dentist in the area, Dr. Oakes is it. I moved up to Seattle for school and I refuse to let anyone work on me besides Dr. Oakes. He is always so professional and punctual, he even manages to get me in early when I have to. I also appreciate that he is so accommodating to my busy schedule. I contacted him yesterday about my wisdom teeth and I was in the office getting my x-rays today! One day turn around is unbeatable. 100% recommend Dr. Oakes. He explains and informs me of all your options and makes the whole process very easy and comfortable.

Wendy R. , Vancouver

Dr. Oakes has been my dentist for 11 years. He is by far the best dentist I've ever had. He is very professional and friendly and is always in a cheerful mood. He keeps on top of the latest and most innovative dental practices and technology. All of my crowns are done in one day in-office, thus saving time since I do not need to get a temporary crown and come back for a second appointment. Dr. Oakes never seems rushed and always takes extra time to carefully explain procedures that are needed. He truly cares about his patients. Without hesitation, I give Dr. Oakes my highest recommendation. The staff is equally professional, competent, and friendly.

Lee, Vancouver

I have been going to Dr. Oakes for 1 year. He has been a life saver for my teeth and his treatment plans have been spot on. As a senior aged patient, he has corrected and saved my teeth from many years of old dental work. I appreciate his ability to communicate to the patient the work that needs to be done and the medical rationale why it is needed. He also is an outstanding provider in the skills he brings and his intervention techniques. Diagnosis, planning, treatment, and his genuine care of me as a patient has been outstanding. I would recommend Dr. Oakes and his office team to anyone who needs or demands the best of oral care. Thank you Michael for being a extraordinary dentist and having a nice group of people who work in your office. Looks like you get me as a long term patient!

Janice, S

Thank you for your services and attention to detail, I always know my family and I are being taking care of. Have been coming to see Dr. Oakes for years and always comforting to see the same friendly staff, means a lot to me. :)

Sherry Smith, Portland

I have been going to Dr. Oakes for 9 years because of his professionalism, great staff and because he is such a great guy. He listens to what you have to say and informs you of what he thinks you need to have done without committing you to large amounts of dental work. Dr. Oakes has a great smile and a wonderful sense of humor so you feel at ease right away and don't mind going to the dentist. If you need hand holding he will do it. I would definitely recommend him for your family and he is good with children.

Christina Z, Vancouver

Doctor Oakes is a close family friend and an amazing dentist. He did molds for my teeth for whitening trays and had them to me very quickly. They were done perfect and I love them!! He's always so friendly and charismatic whenever I or any member of my family come in, would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a kind and professional dentist

Stephanie. C, Vancouver, WA

Dr. Oakes has been my dentist of choice for 2 years. I've had great dentists and awful ones. He is by far the best. Not only do I feel exceptionally confident in his hands, but I continue to be amazed at how much easier my appointments have been. He's also clearly invested in technology, which has certainly saved me time since having to replace all of my old silver fillings. He's always taken the time to educate me on all of my options, ensuring that I'm educated and completely understanding of they why. If you are looking for the best dentist in Vancouver with cool technology, go here!!

Ben, San Diego

Broke a tooth eating Christmas candy and of course I am away from my home town dentist for the holidays. Ask my friend what dentist they use and Dr. Oakes arrived. He was able to use his fancy Cerec machine and BOOM, new teeth and all fix. Thank you all for getting me in and good a great job, wishing your entire team a Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year.

Stephen , Ridgefield

Had a great visit with both the hygienist and doctor last week. Was very concerned about my teeth, as I had not been in for some time. They walked me through step by step with what was going on and how it could be fixed. I even found out that they have magic one day crown making machine, dentistry has come a long way. Thank you Oakes Family Dentistry.

L.W., Battle Ground

Thank you Dr. Oakes and staff for taking care of me and my bridge, such a emotional experience when it is your front teeth. Huge weight off my shoulders to find such a caring dentist with calm, caring staff. Much appreciated :)

Paula, PDX

So many choices out there for dentists, glad I found this one. He straight forward approach and honesty is simply a breath of fresh air. Was told my choices in a good-better-best approach, staff worked with my insurance, and boom I was in a and out with my front tooth fixed. Thank you to the entire team at Oakes Dentistry.
