I went to Rafia for my first visit today and I was extremely impressed by the entire staff. The office manager Mindy was very helpful and friendly, so was Candie although I am not sure of her job title. My hygienist Crystal was nice, personable, and seemed genuinely interested in helping me improve the health of my teeth. Dr. Rafia is hilarious, and definitely cares about his patients and their well being. I will never go to another dentist, unless I move to a different state, lol.
Amazing staff, super personable and Dr Rafia was amazing! Highly recommend to anyone in the Portland metro!
Very friendly and supportive staff – I had dental problems that began after a dental procedure at another dental office. Dr. Rafia and the staff were so friendly and helpful. They were helpful with insurance issues and checking up on me after my visits. Dr.Rafia is extremely kind and treats you like a person. He took time to get to know me in order to meet my needs further. I would recommend this office to anyone in the area!
Terrific Dentist! – 6/17/2010
I have been a patient of Dr. Rafia’s for over a year. Dr. Rafia replaced 6 crowns (provided by a NYC dentist) as they were poorly fitted and responsible for my inflamed gums and pain. After my recent second semi-annual checkup since having the work done; I am thrilled my teeth and gums remain healthy and pain free. My hygienist, Kim, was great. She was efficient, meticulous and friendly. The facility is spotlessly clean and high tech. An added plus is it’s wonderfully distracting to be able to see a lovely outside view from the dental chair. I cannot compliment Dr. Rafia and his staff enough. Thank you hardly seems sufficient for returning my teeth and gums to health!
Best Dentist in Portland!! – I absolutely love Dr. Rafia's dental office and his entire team. From the moment I walked in to the time I left I felt right at home. I hate the dentist... scares me because of a past dental experience from another dentist. Dr. Rafia had me laughing and actually enjoying my visit. I am so thankful to finding his office and I tell people nothing but the absolute truth about his team... they are hands down the best in Portland!! If your looking for a place where you feel at home... I definitely recommend Dr. Rafia!!
Best Dentist Ever – I love Dr. Rafia, I feel really lucky that I found him and didn't have to suffer through another unpleasant dentist experience like I've done my whole life! His staff is really sweet and everyone makes you feel comfortable.
Not impressed. – I went here based largely on the Citysearch reviews. The office itself is very cool and sleek, and they have the latest toys. The hygienist pointed out several potential trouble spots, and I was eager to talk to the dentist about those and about several possible cavities/ongoing problems. Dr. Rafia was in the exam room for *maybe* 3 minutes. He dismissed the hygienist's concerns (which seemed valid and worrisome). "What about cavities?", I asked. "X-rays look fine. What else?" "Um... what about these other issues?", I queried. "Not to worry. What else?" After about the fourth "What else?" I'd had it. Apparently, he was in a real rush to get to the zero other patients waiting the clinic. When it comes to my teeth, I'd like to find someone who takes time to look and listen. I won't be going back here.
Although we strive to create a pleasant clinical atmosphere, answer our clients' questions, and address any concerns at the time of exam, it is clear that we did not meet your expectations. Please accept our apologies, as this is certainly not the norm.
Simply The Best! – Dr. Rafia is an outstanding dentist. He is thorough, knowledgeable and explains complex dentistry in easy to understand terms. I agree with the last review that we are lucky to have him.
#1 Dentist – Dr. Kaz Rafia is the nicest dentist my husband and I have had. He's so easy going, spends time to chat with you about your life, is very professional, and is the most unselfish, giving person humanity-wise. The best thing I like is how there's never any sales pitch to buy any product or service, which is what our last dentist did (Pearl Dental). They do an amazing job and they almost become your friends. Our hygienist is Kimberly, she's fantastic! I tell anyone I can think of to go there. We are very lucky here in the Pearl to have Rafia!!
Finally pain free-thanks to Dr. Raffia & his excellent staff--they will take great care of you and your mouth. – I highly recommend Dr. Kaz and his staff. What a pleasure to go to the Dentist! I have had some bad dental experiences and continuous pain for over 10years in my right jaw/gum where I had a root canal. I went to several dentists & an oral surgeon for the pain, including 2 very expensive Drs. recommended as "the best in NYC", and they could not seem to figure out what was causing the pain--perhaps TMJ, bite issues..., but ultimately , that it was "not dental related." I then avoided the dentist and "dealt" with the pain. Finally, I just couldn't stand it anymore...I went to Dr. Raffia initially because his office was right down the block...I struck Gold..or Platinum, in this case. He was the 1st to notice that the root canal I had 10+yrs ago was very badly done, the crown was not fitted to my gums & much too large. I also had shards of metal from the bad crown digging into my gums. Dr. Kaz put me very much at ease during the procedures (the dental hygienist -was also excellent) . My jaw is now pain free after 10+ years --it has made a wonderful difference in my life- it has allowed me smile so much more. Dr. Raffia and his excellent, warm & friendly staff will take great care of you and your mouth.
