I see a different dentist for the "regular" dental work, but he does not do implants. I am so happy a friend referred me to Dr. Little. I have some allergies and sensitivities to some dental materials. Dr. Little uses safe and non toxic materials. This second implant process with him has gone very smoothly. He takes great care to make sure the procesdure is a success.

My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Little for 30+ years. We've never been dissatisfied with our dental care. Dr. Little is a very gentle, skilled and knowledageable dentist who continues to strive to provide state of the art dentistry. The staff are friendly and competent as well. / F. Peters RN BSN CCM

Dr. Little is very experienced and expert in dentistry. You know it in the way he handles your exam and treatment. I just had another crown done and each is painless and quick. He's done a number of preventative treatments over the 21 years I've been seeing him. Pleased to recommend him and his staff who are also top drawer.

Excellent care. Procedures are explained and completed well. After several years as a patient of Dr. Little, I remain a very satisfied and loyal customer.

Dr. Little was absolutely amazing at my first visit today. He was very thorough in explaining his philosophy on dentistry and exactly what he was looking for throughout each step of the way. There was no wait in the office, he was very gentle and very attentive. There was no sales tactics or pushy behavior, just honest feedback about how to keep my teeth healthy. My husband sees him as well and we will for sure continue.
More
Very friendly staff and informative. I got lots of info the whole way about what they were doing and why which i really appreciated.

Everything about West Hills dental Center and doctor little and his staff is amazing. And this is coming from someone who has been perennially afraid of the dentist their entire life. Personal service and Straight Talk you can't beat that!
More
Always pleasant and professional service.

I was having a very old crown replaced. As in the past I was very happy with the experience and outcome. I have been going to Dr. Steven Little for many, many years. His dental knowledge, skill, and dental philosophy are all of the highest standards. Top notch in every regard!
More
Wonderful staff. Dr Little communicates and educates on dental health with great enthusiasm.
More
After 25+ years of seeing Dr Little and his team I would never go anywhere else. His focus on what is best for his patients and his continued pursuit of ever increasing knowledge and experience is unusual in the field.
More
Dr. Little and his staff are truly The Best!! I was a patient for years but moved out of the area about 5 years ago. Broke part of my veneer tooth last weekend and knew he was the only one I wanted to fix it. Drove 2 hours to see him and as always, it was worth it. He repaired it that day, back to perfect condition. Thank you soooo much West Hills Dental! :)

It was amazing , gentle , love it

Dr Little and the staff at West Hills Family Dental are nothing short of amazing. They were recommended by a friend and in my 48 years it was by far the best dental experience I’ve ever had. Just wished I had found them years ago:) Thank you!!!
More
I appreciate Dr. Little’s coming into the office after hours to help me with a toothache! I pride myself in taking good care of my dental health. Dr. L understood that I had a long history of fine goldwork restorations, and agreed that my new crown should also be done in gold. He billed my insurance and I paid the difference. His staff is very cordial and professional. I am very pleased with both preventative care and the necessary restorative work that I have received!

Always friendly, gentle and kind!

They treated me well, respectively, all staff are generous; everything was transparent, including treatment procedure, service for a fee. Recommended to anyone who needed. Thanks for you made me big smile 😁 😁😄🏃😁😆

I was 45 minutes early and they got me right in. I didn't have to wait at all. Always friendly and have a clean office. They feel like family.
More
I have severe anxiety about going to the dentist to the point that I hadn’t been for 8 years or so. Not only did the dentist call me the day before to talk about my fear and reassure me, but he was there to greet me in the lobby when I arrived. He really listened to me and addressed my fears and gave me something to relax. Everyone was professional and really listened to me, which is exactly what I needed to get through the appointment. Highly recommend.
More
Dr. Little is highly skilled, sensitive and very responsive to my questions and concerns. The nurses and other staff are welcoming and helpful. I recommend Dr. Little and the West Hills Dental Center highly.
More
Great professional staff and personal dental care, which I really appreciate!
More
I haven't been back to see Dr. Little for 14 years, but I always had such good experiences, I decided to go back. Everyone was so helpful and kind and I wish I hadn't changed dentists and I changed jobs, moved, etc. Anyway, they are stuck with me now! 😁

I was scared and ashamed after 17 years of not seeking dental care,but with issues occurring left and right I knew I needed help. Reaching out to Dr Little and his amazing staff was one of the best things I've ever done for myself. They're compassionate and encouraging and it's evident they are there to help you succeed. From start to finish every appointment has been great, which I never thought I'd say about a dentist office. I require heavy sedation which I've never experienced before and everyone really goes out of their way for your comfort and safety. If you're scared and you need some good people in your corner, please reach out to West Hills Dental and get started or continue on a journey towards a better you! You'll thank yourself and the folks providing top-notch care.

What could have been a stressful and painful experience was just the opposite. My experience was comfortable pain free, efficient and informative. I appreciate the expertise and professionalism of the West Hills Dental team.

They do such a great job that I hardly ever have to spend any time there for anything serious. 😀

Today is November 4th, the day after the election, and there are a lot of things I'm feeling anxiety about: but my dental appointment tomorrow with Dr. Little doesn't even rank. And that's a very new thing for me. Let's set the stage: three months ago I had not been to the dentist in over 15 years. Lots of work needed? Oh yeah. Extreme nerves & shame that had developed into a full on phobia? Most definitely. From my first phone call it was clear that this was going to be unlike any medical, let alone dental experience, I'd ever had. They asked me my phobia level (I said 8 ) and then proceeded accordingly. The empathy and care they exhibit is so calming and reassuring. When they tell you that they are on your side and will see you through all of this: it is so true. You will not find a better team to be on your side. And now three months later I am amazed at how far we have already come in fixing things and I will not be sobbing when I go to the office tomorrow. Do I now love getting dental work done? Of course not. But do I trust the team 100% and know that they will take care of me and fear the dentist a whole lot less? Sure do. I know that as long as I'm in Oregon I will be coming to this office. Thank you, Dr. Little & staff: y'all are the best!!
More
It is nice to go to a dentist that he and his staff REALLY care about their patients. I have bad dental anxiety and they are all very nice and understanding. I would HIGHLY recommend them to all. =)
More
Not like any other dental office I've been to, and that's a good thing. The doctor and staff are phenomenal, the setting is very relaxing and everyone speaks to you in very plain, straight forward terms.
More
Super friendly and very knowledgeable, Dr.Little and his staff is a dentist experience that is actually enjoyable.
More
Dr Little has been my dentist for many years. He is scrupulous about keeping up with the current state of the science. He is very conservative about unnecessary procedures. He explains what your options are and he outcomes you can expect, gives his recommendations, then lets you decide. He actively mentors his staff. He is gentle and careful to avoid patient discomfort and pain. 2020 COVID-19 update. Just had a cleaning done. Excellent, as always. Dr Little has put in significant improvements to ventilation, i.e. HEPA filtering and UV, as well as all the standard sanitary precautions. I felt very comfortable and I am elderly.
More
If you have any dental needs I highly recommend this office. The kindness and intelligence from all the staff here is a rare thing to find in this field. You will be very well taken care of by some fantastic people!
More
Awesome team! My first visit was superb! This group takes really good care of you each step of the way. Thank you!
More
It had been too long since I have been to the dentist as I have a severe phobia of the dentist. I even started crying while waiting in the waiting room. But it was a welcoming feeling from the moment I walked in to the moment I walked out. It eased my anxiety so much. Jeanne was my hygienist, and kept checking on me throughout my deep clean to make sure I was doing okay. Dr. Little came in and introduced himself and was very kind. They really do an amazing job, and ease your anxiety with a calmness and politeness that makes you want to come back.
More
Great service...very professional
More
I absolutley love Dr. Little. He has been my dentist since 2006. He and is staff have been wonderful. Thank you Wesr Hills for all the great care.
More
Best dentist in Portland! Always professional and gentle! Great staff.
More
I have nothing but the best experiences ever at a dental office and highly recommend West Hills Dental Center! They are diligent in the comfort and excellent care of their patients. Very friendly and accommodating staff and of course Dr Little is the best at what he does. I don’t put off my dental treatment anymore because of the phenomenal care I receive each and every time!
More
My 1st teeth cleaning that I’ve had in years with Jean went great! She made sure to check in with me often and stop or slow down whenever I needed. She provided very good explanation for all of her actions except when she used a topical numbing solution on my gums. That shocked me and triggered some anxiety. Jean also said that she would tell me about some floss that didn’t tear as much and was good for teeth with fillings but failed to do so by the end of my appointment. I didn’t remember until later. Besides those two things, I had a great experience and will definitely be coming back for all of my teeth care.
More
All the staff are so nice and smart. As a family patient here for 15yrs plus combined with me and my parents I can tell you this, Dr. Little and his staff are miracle dentists and there very smart and know what there doing. They always have the best advice on how to save your teeth instead of removing them and yes they end up looking great as long as you maintain them. The Assistant that was helping me on August 10th at 8am was very nice, knowledgeable, smart, definitely knew her dentistry and she was very happy and had a smile on her face. I would definitely recommend this place cause this dentist office treats everyone like family and not like a used car on a car lot trying to sell you something. I am definitely going to stay with Dr. Little and the Assistant that was helping me August 10th. I am so greatful for her and Steven little for all the miracle work they have done on my teeth. Thank you all very much your all the best ever.

I have been going to West Hills family dental for almost 20 years now. There is no one I trust more than Dr Little. He is extremely knowledgeable and is always working towards improving his expertise to best serve his patients. He is NEVER looking to make a quick buck off his patience. I feel like I am much more than just a patient at WHFD

Are you experiencing dental pain, but you're afraid to go to the dentist? Do not wait one more minute! Dr. Little and his remarkable staff truly care about you and making your experience with them as positive as possible. And, as pain free as possible. I would quickly like to tell you about my recent dentist experience. I needed 2 crowns and Dr. Little was going to prepare both of them at the same time. We decided a "local" was going to be enough. Well - it didn't take long (2 seconds) for Dr. Little to realize that was not enough and I was having a full blown panic attack. Never had one before. He stopped immediately and arranged for me to come back the next day when he used "no pain dentistry ". And, the rest is history. Dr. little and his staff wanted to make sure that I was as comfortable as possible and pain free. They succeeded at both. Thank you to Dr. Little, Katherine, Suzanne, Jessie, and the entire staff ! You are the best.
More
As always, a great experience and I’m very appreciative of the quality of service, the genuine kindness and hospitality they show, and overall care they provide! If you have not already chooses West Hills Dental Center as your provider, I’d highly recommend that you do so. You will not be disappointed.
More
Always a pleasant experience with the friendly staff. I've been going here about 20 years and have a lot of trust in Dr. Little.
More
Can't say enough good about this office & people. They know what they're doing and do it very well. Friendly, professional, a very positive experience doing something I don't really like doing... Highly recommend.
More
I HATE going to the dentist with a passion, but I drag myself in to see Dr. Little somehow. He understands the fear and PTSD from past experiences and will only start working on me when I feel ready. I recently had a tooth extraction and root canal at the same time and did not remember it after and the pain was very, very minimal compared to past experiences. I highly recommend Dr. Little to anyone who avoids the dentist like the plague. I’m finally getting my teeth fixed and even the cleaning was easy. He is a toothsaver!
More
Very comfortable surroundings and professional. Virus conscious, clean, gloved and masked.
More
Somehow, Dr. Little and staff manage to deliver top notch dental care and treat patients like guests in their home. Their professional dentistry shows.
More
Dr. Little and his team are always really good and treat me like family. I recommend them to everyone I know and the people who have gone really like them also. He and his team gets my highest recommendation.

I've had the best Dental care here from the office manager - Katherine to dental assistants to Dr.Little! They go out of the way to make your experience the absolute best possible.and affordable. I've had a lot of experience with dental work and no Dental Office cones close to comparing. Elizabeth McBride

I have been a patient of Dr. Little for 15 years. He is probably the most trustworthy and no pressure dentist there is out there. The work he has done on my teeth is extensive- I couldn’t be happier. Great staff , warm family like atmosphere. I love this place!!!
More
I have always had a tremendous fear of dental work. I had bad teeth growing up, and we were not always in a position to get me the work I needed. When we were, the work done was often substandard, incredibly painful, and came with a heaping dose of shame. This was what dentistry was for me all through school. I have now been a patient of Dr. Little’s for ten years, and I can say without hesitation that he is the best dentist I have ever had. He and his entire staff have always gone far above and beyond for me. They always make me feel safe, and comfortable, and they are always flexible with me and my anxiety. The work done here has always been exemplary, and no one has ever made me feel bad for being in whatever state I happen to be in. This clinic continues to change my life, and I am forever grateful.
More
By far the best dentist ever. Such smart was to help patients feel calm and use creative ways to fix your dental problems. Feel fortunate we found them!
More
I appreciate the exceptional level of care and communication from all staff. Feels like family!
More
Dr. Little and his staff are so welcoming and are masterful at reducing my dental anxiety. I highly recommend for anyone who doesn't like going to the dentist.
More
I actually look forward to going to the dentist as everyone here is amazing! They treat you like family and have your best interest at heart instead of trying to do unnecessary procedures to make a buck.
More
Dr. Little and his entire staff are great. I wish all of my healthcare providers could be this wonderful.

Dr. Little is super knowledgeable and great at putting his patients at ease!

Can you really rate a dentist 5 stars? Yes, yes you can. I recently switched to West Hills Dental after some frustrations with my previous dentist(s). Previously I had a dentist that wouldn't communicate what was happening or why. I was always pushed to buy things they offered. I just wanted to be taken care of. I found all of that and more at West Hills. From my first phone call to today's experience I am floored at their caring service. I am flabbergasted at how much information I've received on my dental health as well as what is happening and why. Dr. Little has been amazing so far and the only "Little" thing I have now is my level of concern. Thank you. P.S. my wife will be coming your way soon!
More
Best dental experience ever. The entire staff is so easy to get along with and they make you feel very valued. They put your needs first and never suggest anything they dont truely believe will be beneficial to you. The atmosphere is so calming too.
More
I have been a patient of Dr. Little for over 25 years and have always received personalized, up-to-date, and professional care. I'd give West Hills Dental Center 6 starts if possible!
More
I love Dr. Little and his staff. I’ve been seeing him for over 15 years now. Boy where does the time go?!!! He’s got a great personality and very professional. I completely trust his honest opinion. I highly recommend him!
More
Dr. Little and his team are the upmost professionals. They have taken care of me for years. I appreciate their attentiveness and willingness to go the extra mile to make sure I am taken care of and comfortable with any treatment. I highly recommend them!
More
Wonderful office, have been going for years, highly recommend Dr Little and his excellent staff.

Been coming here for 6 years. Very professional staff and quality patient care provided by Dr. Little.
More
Dr. little has been my dentist for years. He and and his staff are always friendly, professional, considerate and obviously know what they're doing. I highly recommend them for all of your dental needs.
More
I’m a terrible patient. All dental work bothers me and some even scares me and I know that I’m not alone in this category. Dr. Little and his staff are top notch. They are very professional but most of all they are very kind and caring. They go out of their way to make you comfortable. He has many different methods to accommodate you such as gas and using medications. Plus, you can get a sticker on the way out! 🤣
More
The staff here are the best. Last year Dr. Little and his team replaced my missing front tooth and fixed the broken ones on either side so that my teeth look like they did before my accident, not Hollywood chiklets. Everyone was friendly and caring through the process, especially Lily, and every part, including the prosthetic, was done in house and fast. Dr. Little talks you through procedures and treatment options in a very open, honest, and friendly way. Yesterday, I had a cleaning with Becca. She is super fast, a deep clean in 40 min, gentle, and focuses on prevention and maintenance. We also talk about gaming and other stuff. The out of pocket cost for cleaning is super reasonable, $106 for perio-maintenance. I highly recommend this practice if you're looking for dental care. I tell all my friends all the time to make the drive over the hill and go here.
More
Great no pressure dentist. I enjoy coming to Dr. Little's office. Pain free, worry free. Great hygienists. Great music piped in for your exam. Helps you relax. Great place!
More
Dr. Little and his staff are extremely friendly and they make sure you have the best experience when visiting the dentist. No matter what you go in for leave with a smile.
More
This is by far the best dentist I have ever been to. I have a sever phobia of going to the dentist because of some horrific experiences I have had in the past at other dental offices and everyone at West Hills Dental understood how afraid I was. They literally did everything to accommodate me so I could get all the work done I was in dire need of. Even went as far as giving me the necessary callings meds when I come in just for a cleaning. They understand what it takes to help people like me and I can assure you dentist like this are very hard to find. I recommend them to everyone :)
More
Very professional staff.The staff are very knowledgeable and experienced. I really enjoyed my first visit & looking forward to returning on Aug. 28 2017 for my next appointment....
More
I have been a patient of Dr. Little's for over 25 years and have always received professional, courteous, painless and reasonably priced service from him and his staff. I highly recommend West Hills Family Dental to anyone looking for a dentist.
More
I am a long-term patient of Dr. Little. I hemmed and hawed about getting some work done, and there was never any pressure. When I was recently ready, the whole team moved quickly to get it scheduled and completed. Ultimately, he gave me an all new smile. I still have some things to do in the back of my mouth, and have every intention of seeing Dr. Little for the work. I trust him, his work is excellent and the team is professional yet friendly. I've not once regretted going to West Hills Family Dental and actually look forward to my visits.
