Review of Dr. Palena


This is the absolute worst dentist I have ever seen. I'm old, so I have seen many dentists and she is awful! I was forced to wait 2 hours to see her, then she talked to me for only 3 minutes. She said I needed braces, a root canal in a tooth that does not hurt, the removal of all the old fillings at a huge replacement cost, the removal of an old crown because she said it was done wrong, and the list goes on and on. She said it could take five years to complete. Second opinion said, NO!

Review of Dr. Andersen

- in Vancouver, WA |

I was given deficient and inaccurate information regarding the result of this dentist's correcting a loose bridge that contained one of my front teeth, as well as a grossly inaccurate "estimate" of its cost (30%+ under final cost), before I agreed to have him do the work. Then after the work was completed, it was inadequate and incomplete, and only then was I told that I would not be able to bite with the "corrected" problem, complete with a lot of nonsense "explanations" for the inadequate work

Review of Dr. Palena

-vancouver, WA |

She always referred me out for tooth extractions, root canals etc. She only did fillings and crowns. I had an implant done and she had another dentist from Portland come to her office and do it. Also she kept finding things wrong in my mouth and kept telling me to see my md which I did and many blood tests later.

Review of Dr. Andersen

My recent experience seeing Dr. Andersen for my dental needs was completely stress free. His team was so welcoming and friendly, I felt right at home. I recommend Dr. Andersen to anyone who has a fear of dentistry. He definitely caters to patients who have anxiety in the dental chair.

Felt like she was interested in revenue enhancement, not necessary care. Now, her office is closed with no notification and my new dentist can't contact her.

Review of Dr. Palena

-Vancouver, WA |

I have been attempting to have a redo of one of my crowns for the last two years and it has been a nightmare. On one occasion I had an 8am appt and when I got to office lights were out and door was locked, I waited 30 min and finally Dr. Palena showed up and let me in with no explanation and no staff. Now u need to make another appt still regarding the same redo on a molar and office phone goes right to voice mail during normal business hours. I still am waiting for a return call.

Review of Dr. Palena

- in Vancouver, WA |

In a nutshell, after receiving dental care from Wanda Palena for the last 12 years, her and her staff have lost professionalism, helpfulness, and courtesy. She botched my wife's root canal and will not stand behind her work, but instead offers recommendations to other oral surgeons, and other fixes that end up costing us more and more. I decided to get a different dentist, and Palena's staff has given every excuse in the book to not send them my dental records. Completely unprofessional.
