Editorial review from Citysearch 3/16/2014

Love Bling Dental! I have never been to an office where I felt so welcomed. The staff is fantastic and Dr. Katie has a gift for making people feel at ease. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 8/2/2012

DO NOT BUY THEIR PRODUCTS!!! I rarely feel the need to write a review on a business, but people need to know not to waste their money. Several problems: \r 1. I had ordered the Diamond Toothbrush. It didnt come for about 6 weeks, and after several emails I was finally responded to and was sent....the wrong product (the teeth-whitening trays). After several more weeks and emails I was told to keep the trays (score!) and would be sent the toothbrush once they restocked. That didnt happen. They ""forgot"" to put my new order in and I had to write even MORE emails to get on the ""next re-stock."" It took months to get my toothbrush. \r \r 2. The teeth-whitening trays did absolutely nothing. I cant believe people would pay so much for this crap when you can see actual results with Crest strips, with less sensitivity to boot. ZERO effectiveness.\r \r 3. Back to the toothbrush: I finally received mine and after 7 months it is completely dead. At first it wouldnt turn OFF (hours of hearing vibrating noises) and now it has seen its grave, Considering they only have a 60 day guarantee, I am sure they knew what kinda crap they were hustling people for. My boyfriend has a similar electric toothbrush of another brand and has owned his for 8 years (with various heads of course!) with no problems whatsoever. DO NOT BUY THIS!!! Huge waste of money, not to mention mind-numbing-time-wasting conversations with their ditzy customer service. more

I called the bling offices close to 5. 4/20/2012

I called the bling offices close to 5. I had a broken tooth and was in really bad pain. I thought I would just get an rx and not be seen until Monday. I got a call back saying that Dr. Katie wanted to meet me and how soon could i get there. I was really floored and went down to the office. She looked at my tooth and gave me a temporary filling which immediatley helped my pain. She was so compassionate and friendly. She restored my admiration and faith in Dentists. Now I can enjoy my weekend and not have to be in pain. Thanks so much Dr. Katie!!!! more

Ridiculous!!!!! Where is my Diamond 3/5/2012

Ridiculous!!!!! Where is my Diamond Elite ultrasonic toothbrush I bought from groupon!!?!??!?!!? Complete scam!!! I am surprise to see that this place as 4/5 stars...That must be a scam too!! Considering that the most recent comments are to complain about taking our money. Reporting this to BBB! more

This place is O.K. I went there just 3/5/2012

This place is O.K. I went there just for a bling to be cured to my tooth. It is $20 per bling. I was referred by a friend who had gotten 4 done and brought her own bling, so they lowered the price to $10 per. I had brought my own as well 2 actually, and the girl dropped and lost 1, soooo I got only 1 :( I was also charged $20. Kind of confused.. But overall the place LOOKS nice, and I would not be able to vouch for any other services though.. Looks like other people in these reviews have, and not so good... more

WHERE IS MY ULTRASONIC TOOTHBRUSH I ORDERED MONTHS AGO????? 12/8/2011

I wish I could give a double thumbs down rating because I would. I ordered the BLING Ultrasonic Toothbrush from LivingSocial months ago. BLING was quick to take a credit card payment however they have yet to send the toothbrush. As far as I am concerned this is a larceny and BLING should be ASHAMED of themselves. I have NOT been able to get through to BLING to speak to anyone. I was not able to EMAIL, nothing! What a NERVE these people have!!! My next recourse will be to contact the CC I used and the BBB. I have read that others have experienced similar issues such as mine. I had a feeling that this was a scam after waiting for oh, I dunno months..... I can't speak for the actual dental services they do but PLEASE do yourselves a favor - don't buy their toothbrush online. You'll never get it. more

Literally Painful Experience 11/18/2011

This review pertains to the Bling Icing 30 carats (teeth whitening) product created by Dr. Raymond Frye. I created this account solely for the purpose to warn others about this product! I purchased this product excited to freshen up my smile for the holidays. Upon receiving the whitening kit, I was eager and ready to create my whitening trays. This proved to be a tedious and time consuming task. Small scissors did not make the task of cutting the molds any easier. The final product was dismal. I was still optimistic at this point. I didn't mind the process, as long as I achieved the desired (and 'professional') outcome. The first treatment went without a hitch. I didn't notice any difference, but thought that it may take some time. As I prepared for the second treatment, I was hopeful. Hopeful, until 30 seconds after placing the tray in my mouth. The pain hit almost instantly! It ran along a portion of my gum line. I thought it would pass. It did not. The burning continued and even worsened! I had the tray out within 1 minute and went to the bathroom to investigate. I discovered a portion of my gun line discolored and RAW. It was extremely painful. I have tried to contact a representative and have been ignored repetitively. I was and still am horrified by my experience and don't want anyone else to suffer. I have received a sincere apology and regret from Living Social (where I purchased the product). What I want is a full refund and a warning for those who have yet to try this product. I will continue to post everywhere I can, on every social network so to warn people about dangers and this product and horrible customer service ""provided"" by Bling dental representatives. more

Horrible Service!!! 11/4/2011

I had ordered a teeth whitening kit over 5 months ago and I still have not received their product! They do not respond back to your emails. I would not order anything from Bling Dental they will take your money and run. more

Product does not work at all 11/4/2011

I received the icing at home whitening system from a Groupon purchase. I have now used this on 5 different days...all spaced out a day or two apart. I have had no results at all!!! They claim you will have dramatic results after the first time. I have much much better results with crest whitestrips. If you have the same experience, dont even bother trying to reach them. I have emailed them 3 times (in which their site says they will respond within 2 business days) and I hav also tried to call, but their mailbox is always full so you cant leave a message...and of course they dont answer the phone. I think this product is a scam!! more

Living Social Coupon 10/11/2011

I ordered the living social coupon, and then 2 weeks later i got 3 bling teeth whitener in the mail. I thought score - they sent me 2 too many! BUT I was not impressed. Ive seen better outcomes with crest whitestrips and they dont make your guns burn half as bad. I did see a little improvement but not worth the pain in my case. It really increases your sensitivity to cold things. Id say if you get 3 packages for 60 $ then its worth the deal, but if you are just getting one I d recommend getting the advanced crest white strips. They work better, shorter, and feel safer in your mouth more

Do NOT order products online from this company! 5/31/2011

This review is not in regards to the dental practice at Bling Dental- rather, in regards to the customer service when ordering the Icing Teeth Whitening kit. I ordered this kit over two months ago. They said that orders typically take 2-3 business days for processing. For orders in the US, we estimate 7-14 business days for delivery. I am in the US, so I assumed 3 weeks at the most to receive my product. 4 weeks later, I had not received my order, so I sent an email to customer service. I had to send an email, as no phone number was provided for customers who purchased this project through the Living Social deal, as I did. Over a week later, I finally received a response that said, ""We have been overwhelmed with customer inquiries and have recently hired new staff to assist. Your ordered was redeemed on 03/24/11 and you should have received your purchase by now. I have requested our shipping department to send a new order out to you on Tuesday, 05/03/11."" It is 4 weeks later, again, yet I have not received my product. I have since sent two email complaints, with no response. This company participated in a Living Social deal, but clearly did not have the staff in place to handle the customer demand. As a result, a product I ordered and PAID FOR over two months ago has still not been delivered to me. In my opinion, this is fraudulant. I have since asked for and been granted a refund through Living Social, but have yet to hear from Bling Dental. I DO NOT RECOMMEND ordering anything online from this company! more

I need to get a second opinion because my head is spinning. 12/29/2010

My experience of getting blingified at this office was similar to one that may be compared to disneyland? I went to another dentist that was not terrible but I did question the integrity of their business standards. I tried out this office and it's seems strange that I needed to get a lot of teeth redone or crowns and so on. The other dentist never even mentioned half the amount of dental work as Dr. Frye. Wth? My head is spinning. Where do I go from here because as far as my dental history has been I have been good at taking care of my teeth, only a little filling here or there. I have gone to the dentist every year since I was 5. I just move into town and have had the most awkward dental visits of my life . I am not adverse to getting work done but it was not what I had expected. Do I need to get a third opinion now? Sheesh. Very annoying. I gave them a 2 star rating because I felt that the experience was a bit too""cheezy"" for me on top of the over exaggerated list of dental needs I was ""politely"" stressed to review and care for because my blah blah blah...... and it goes out the other ear..... more

Exceptional Dentist!!! 12/3/2010

I never thought I would be writing a recommendation for a dental office, but after consistently receiving awesome service at Bling Dental, I feel compelled. I've been going there for over a year now, and I can honestly say that this is the best dental experience I've ever had. I am very particular about my teeth, and therefore, have been to many dentists in my life. The customer service at Bling is never short of remarkable, from the second you walk in to the moment you step out. The staff go above and beyond, and the dental work itself is exceptional. If you don't like going to the dentist, or just want the best quality work, this is the place to go in Portland!! The other great thing is that the prices are very reasonable (no more than other dental offices), but, like I said, the service and quality are unmatched. more

Bling is the Best 12/1/2010

The staff at Bling is not only very friendly, but also very professional. Dr. Frye is a real expert in his field, and is also one of the kindest and warmest individuals I know. I feel lucky to have found such a wonderful dentist. The entire Bling experience is incredible. I would recommend Bling to everyone! more

THANK YOU! 11/12/2010

I am so pleased with my experience at Bling Dental and wanted give them my highest recommendation. My family and I are on a very tight budget these last couple of years. Because of this it was paramount that we find a preferred dental provider for our ODS dental insurance. We never imagined we would find this quality of a dentist and dental office! Dr.Raymond was amazing, kind, gentle, informative and knowledgeable. His entire staff treated me as if I was their most important patient. Thank you so much. I will be referring my entire office to Bling Dental.\r \r more

Bling Dentistry 11/11/2010

Growing up with a real fear of the dentist, I found my experience at Bling very positive. Emily was very gentle when she cleaned my teeth and they felt super afterward. Dr. Katie was also very gentle on my filling and I felt no pain. Her assistant was also very kind and helped me relax during the experience. I also was given the feeling that I was the most important person there. They weren't in a hurry to get me finished to get on to the next person. Dr. Katie also called that night and the next day to find out how my tooth felt. That was very nice. \r \r Thanks for giving a person with a phobia of the dentist a nice experience. more

Portland's Best Dentist and Dental Staff Hands Down! 11/11/2010

If I could give Bling Dental and Raymond Frye ten stars I would. I have had several dentists over the years. The most recent one I have been going to for the past 8 years. I felt like I was being taken care of ""for the most part"". I have several friends that have visited Bling and were ecstatic about their experience so I had to try it myself. I can now understand their enthusiasm. Dr. Raymond Frye and the staff at Bling TRULY care about their clients. Dr. Frye went over everything in detail along with any priority issues that needed to be addressed and some areas that may present concerns in the future. This put me at ease immediately and I really felt like they cared about me and I was not just another patient. Dr. Frye fixed a filling for me just yesterday on my second visit. I did not even feel anything!! He has such a soft touch and really finds a way to connect with his clients which makes you feel relaxed and comforted.\r \r I will happily give my highest recommendations to Dr. Raymond Frye and the staff at Bling Dental. My hats off to you for changing the way people feel about going to the dentist. I can't wait for my next appointment!!\r more

THE BEST DENTISTRY TO BE FOUND!! 11/11/2010

I have been a client of Bling Dental since it began and I have always found the service OUTSTANDING, over and above any dental office I have ever been a patient at!! Clean, sterile, very friendly help, always fast in and out service, free teeth bleach for patients-- what more can I ever ask for. My smile is a BLING SMILE!! Thanks all of you at Bling Dental and Dr. Raymond for helping keep my smile beautiful! more

The BEST dental experience! 11/11/2010

So, I personally hate going to the dentists office........for ANYTHING!!! After many years I have come to realize that the thought of going to the dentists gives me anxiety and I ""white knuckle"" it right on through. I went to Bling Dental after trying several other dental offices and leaving with pain or less than adequate dental work. As I went into Bling Dental I was welcomed over and over by their friendly and warm staff. This made it a little easier to stay in the office and not turn around and run for the door. Not to mention there is this cute little dog that just sat behind this gate begging for my attention. Of course playing with the dog was a huge distraction and instead of sitting in a waiting area thinking about all that could go wrong I played with an adorable puppy and next thing you know I was in the CHAIR!!! Tricky people..........and then.........then the chair began to give me a massage. Um, yup I said it the chAIR was massaging me while I watched a movie (there is a tv hanging from the ceiling above). I am not sure what the staff was asking me........I was watching Marley and Me for the first time and I did not have time to respond to their questions. I mean after all I was relaxed and watching a movie. Exactly, I was relaxed at a dentist office. Since this experience Bling Dental and not failed to met my expectations and quite frankly they exceed them time and time again. They have stayed late for me and have made arrangements to accommodate me in any situation. If you are looking for a great dentist go to Bling and ask to see Raymond Frye. I am sure you will not regret it. Cheers and best of luck. more

I actually look forward to the dentist 11/11/2010

We moved from California 6 years ago. We left behind a few service providers that have been impossible to replace: our hair stylist and our dentist. After five years and a friend's recommendation we found our dentist. Sorry Dr. Ed Huster, there's new guy in town! We love Dr. Raymond Frye and the entire Bling Dental team. Our children beg to go to the dentist - did you hear me? They BEG. I know the care I get is of the highest standards. I actually called my old dentist before my first visit to Bling to find out what I should ask, watch out for, etc. He told me to be wary of a new dentist that tells me I need a ton of work, redo old work, etc. I went to my appointment with my ""test"" ready. Dr. Raymond assured me that my teeth were white, could be whiter, but they were beautiful. He complimented my old work from Dr. Ed and didn't chastise me for not flossing enough. It was all positive. I've had one crown replaced with porcelain - there was decay seeping in. Other than that, it's been all cleaning and digital xrays. I'm so pleased with how personable they are, how much they remember everything about each of my family members from visit to visit. I'm grateful to my friend, Connie, for recommending Dr. Raymond to us. more
