Nice location, easy access in and out. Comfortable atmosphere, receptionist greeted me with a smile. Dr Brian was very nice to talk to. My hygienist (Stephanie) put me at ease and did a wonderful job, left feeling confidant with my smile:) I highly recommend Alder Dental !

Came in with sensitivity in a tooth. Dr Alder wound up doing a crown that cost $1600. During the crown procedure, there was quite a bit of pain. The sensitivity never went away and after several months, I went to another dentist who confirmed I really needed a root canal that will cost another $1500. Should have gone to the second dentist first.

As a guy that (previously) didn't like going to the dentist, my experience with Alder Family Dental has changed my attitude. The facility is warm and inviting, more like a family home than a medical office. The staff is friendly and professional. In the dental area, the professional staff is excellent and Dr. Alder is wonderful to work with. Prior to starting, I received an complete explanation of my procedure the result of which fixed an issue I'd been struggling with for years. Thanks!!

Dr. Alder is awesome! I've only had two other dentists in my life that I have liked as well as him, one of which, Dr Stones in Salem, referred me to him. Dr Alder is very good at his craft. He is also very kind and patient with my special needs son. His office staff is very friendly but also professional.

My husband and I started seeing Dr. Alder's father, also a dentist, almost 30 years ago. Brian went into practice with his father, and then took over the business when his dad retired. Brian keeps up to date on all the latest methods, is highly competent, and takes time to answer questions and respond to patient concerns. His staff are friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this office to anyone seeking a good dentist. You won't be disappointed.

Dr. Alder is the best dentist I've ever had. I recently got my husband to switch over to Dr. Alder and he agrees that the dental care and office atmosphere are superior. The entire staff is top notch and I get excellent care.

I love Dr. Alder?s office. Lisa and Rebecca at the counter are STELLAR! They work hard on my behalf with my insurance, fit appointments into my schedule and are always friendly and up beat. Suzanne is an incredible hygienist; thorough yet gentle and I feel confident in the treatment I get. Dr. Alder also does great dental work and is a nice, friendly guy. He makes me laugh at every appointment.

There is simply no better Dental office in Vancouver! I have always had a great experience, from the ladies at the front desk who take excellent care in making appointments and navigating the complications of insurance to the wonderful care that I receive in the back. I always know that my health and my comfort are their top priority. The office is also fun! You can always hear laughter through the office. Everyone seems to enjoy each other and their jobs. Why would you go anywhere else?

I have to strongly disagree with the bad review. I've had work done at this office for several years now. There have been two situations where the Dr felt I should be referred to someone else (one being all four wisdom teeth removed and the other was a very tricky root canal). Both times the Dr and the recptionists told me about several offices I could go to that were in my PPO. They wanted to ensure my treatments were met with the same high quality that their office provides.Which I appreciate!

Be careful with this dentists office. I can say that Dr. Alders work is absolutely the best, but he will dismiss you from his practice if you try and chose your own specialist. He has special relationships that puts money back in his pocket for referring. He will waste your time. I was dismissed for this reason. I was referred to his periodontist of choice, this periodontist was out of my network (would have cost over $1000 per 4 quadrant cleaning), I found one in network and I was dismissed
