It is hard to fit everything positive about Dr. Thanik into one review. I came to see him for dental implants and I was scared first coming to see him, but he made me feel at ease right away. He explained everything that needed to be done in detail, and in a way I could understand and also explained the cost for everything. It is obvious he is the best in his field. He is very knowledgeable, experienced and straightforward about everything from the get go. He made the procedure as quick and painless as possible. The implants turned out PERFECTLY! The cost for the implants was well worth it. The office is very nice and modern and the staff are great! I am so glad I went to Dr. Thanik. I don't think it would have turned out as well if I had gone somewhere else. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Thanik for implants or any other procedure he offers. Thank you Dr. Thanik for making me smile again!
About Hygienist: Hygienists were all amazing. Super professional and friendly. About Front Desk: Front desk staff were awesome. Super professional and friendly. Really appreciate the helpful appointment reminders they send.My Experience: Dental Implants on 2 teeth done in a few hours.


I had recession on my lower gums and Dr Thanik was able to successfully fix/replace the gums. His office is properly and professionally managed and it is extremely clean. Barely any waiting in the 4 or so times I visited. Dr Thanik was very thorough and honest and did excellent work (gums look great). He is a perfectionist which is exactly what you want when getting this surgery. I had a very good experience despite this being an unpleasant surgery, in general, to have. Three months later mouth feels perfectly normal and looks much better than before. Billing and insurance stuff was worked out well in advance and the office was honorable in this area too.


I had the old crown removed,bone grafting done to build up the bones in my jaw and a post put in for an implant.I was really nervous and only had my gums numbed.Dr.Thanik was very thorough and gentle,explaining the procedure every step of the way.He is one of the most professional people I have ever met and takes what he does very seriously.He even called on a weekend evening to make sure I had no discomfort.It was a pleasure dealing with the entire office.I now have to go to my regular dentist and will truly miss this office and Dr.Thanik. I can't say enough about how amazing he is.


From my first visit for an implant through my last follow up visit today I have been extremely impressed with Dr Thanik's entire operation. All concerns were addressed by either Dr Thanik or his staff and at no time did I feel tense or ill at ease. It was an easy process made so by his professional standards. Can't say enough good about my experience. Cost was in line with other quotes. I highly recommend Dr Thanik.


Dr. Thanik was wonderful to work with! He was very friendly, and took time to explain everything to me. I was so happy with the results, he did a great job! The staff was very friendly, and always greeted me when I came in.


For those who are considering dental implants, I would highly recommend Dr. Sunil Thanik as your surgeon of choice. His staff is friendly, caring and knowledgeable, as well, which makes for a positive experience overall. Portland is very fortunate to have such a dedicated and talented doctor practicing in this area and I have the highest regard for Dr. Thanik and his staff.


I had three dental implants five days ago, so I suppose it is too early to know if they are a complete success. At this point , I am doing very well. I was very well treated and had some swelling but no other type of pain.


I am already playing my harmonica again, which was very important to me.. I was very anxious about this procedure and Dr Thanik was very kind to me.


I went to Dr. Thanik in late November for what was to be a bone graft procedure in preparation for an implant six months later. While I was under IV sedation, Dr. Thanik discovered that I had more jaw bone than my x ray indicated. After a brief consultation with my daughter in the waiting room, Dr. Thanik proceeded with implant surgery. When I was finished and sitting in a wheelchair, I remember him (through quite a fog) informing me that I had saved myself about $1000! A less ethical doctor could have poured some bone in my jaw, sewn me up, and collected for both procedures. Besides his strong sense of ethics, Dr. Thanik has the patience to explain treatment options clearly, reassure even the most frightened patient, and convey a feeling of being in safe, competent hands. I appreciated his follow-up call the day after my surgery, although I felt so good I wasn't home to receive it! Dr. Thanik's staff are terrific, too--very friendly, competent, and reassuring. They obviously think a lot of their boss! I would recommend Dr. Thanik without reservation.

Dr. Thanik is incredible. I was so nervous for the procedure and he made me feel extremely comfortable and safe. I would go back to him ANY time!


Dr. Thanik is the best. I had 2 bone grafts, followed by a tooth removal, and then an implant. All through every procedure he explained everything, took the time to call me at home at night to check on me, and treated me very kindly. His staff was very knowledgeable. I absolutely trust everything he does, and know that I was in the best hands possible. Implants are easy, really no big deal. Now I have a tooth that I wouldn't have had otherwise, and it looks real. I would do it again. Dr. Thanik takes the scary out of dental work. And along the way, you become a part of their "family". Dr. Thanik even sponsored me for the Mrs. Oregon pageant! Thank you Dr. Thanik!

Sincerely, Tammy Wolf, Mrs. Lake Oswego


Dr. Thanik has brought me through bone grafting, gum grafting and 4 implants. He is a true professional, explaining everything, suggesting alternatives, listening to my many concerns, and helping me have the best teeth situation possible. His knowledge and ability at his craft are truly exceptional. As for the cost, yes implants are expensive, they are an investment in yourself. You deserve to go to Dr. Thanik. Although I had been referred to Dr. Thanik I still paid for several evaluations before settling on Dr. Thanik. He is the best. You can save your money looking around unless, of course, like me you just need to.

When I had concerns many months after my bone grafting about the material used (which he had given me all my options at the time) he promptly sent me detailed records and explanations.

His office staff are a joy to work with they have all been there for a very long time and all are senstive, mature, and most responsive to all of your concerns. This is the first review I have ever written and I am very glad to do it.

Dr. Thanik is great! I went in for an evaluation for grafts and he was very thorough in explaining what he thought should be done, and explained the procedure in detail and what I should expect. I haven't had the procedure yet, but he made me feel relaxed and took away my anxiety, He was very pleasant and I would definitely recommend him!

"My procedure was a soft tissue graft. Sounds awful, and I was nervous. Dr Thanik and his staff were so very nice and thorough in explaining the procedure; they put my mind at ease. The procedure went perfectly and Dr Thanik was very clear with the post surgery instructions. Dr Thanik even called the next day to see how I was doing - Impressive! The office is clean, organized and beautiful. His staff are very nice and helpful with the insurance and Dr Thanik has an excellent chair-side manner!! After following the post surgery instructions to the "T", procedure was a great success!! I would absolutely recommend Dr Thanik to others."

"If I could give Dr. Thanik 10 stars I would!! I met Dr. Thanik and his team over two years ago. For a 30 year old woman, my mouth ended up being a total mess (without me knowing). I had a huge infection in my jaw that was traveling towards my brain. Dr. Thanik found it (after I went to him for a chipped crown but also had been experiencing headaches). He got to work right away and scheduled me for surgery almost immediately. He warned me that the total process would be long and it was but he made it utterly enjoyable. His team took such great care of me and only did what was necessary. There was even talk of potential gum graphs but instead of going for it (which any other dentist would do who wanted to make an extra buck) Dr. Thanik told me that it wouldn't make much difference in my overall outcome and would be a waste of money for me. I am so so so appreciative of Dr. Thanik and his team for taking such amazing care of me. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone I know!"

"Dr. Thanik's hygienist is like is right arm. He absolutely cannot do what he does without here. She is so calming and helpful, especially helpful for someone like me who is very nervous about dentistry and all of the procedures I had to go through. She blabbed on with me while I was loopy during procedures and never made me feel bad about it =). She is truly top notch and completes the dynamic duo! "

"Randy is absolutely amazing!! She greets you with a smile and is so accommodating to you. She is great at scheduling around you and is very helpful at squeezing you in if you really need it. Randy was the first person I met on Dr. Thanik's team and I am so grateful for her getting me in on that first appointment. She was instrumental in helping me achieve the smile I have today."

"He did two implants in the front of mouth. He is an excellent surgeon and my implants were done with care and without pain. The crown was placed by another dentist and Dr. Thanik found irregularities in the crown placement. He offered options to resolve a difficult post-implant situation. He added compassion and empathy. He facilitated resolution of my issue with three other doctors to an excellent result. I highly recommend him."

"I am thoroughly extremely happy with the results from the Laser Periodontal treatment that Dr. Thanik uses. I was told that I needed to have my gums scraped and planed, which sent me into a tailspin. Pain and suffering on top of missing work. I went online and researched alternative methods of this procedure, and came up with Dr. Thanik's practice and methods. I went and had a consultation, and then the procedure, and one year and a half later my gums no longer bleed, my measurements are ones and twos, and the one 7 pocket that I had is now a 4. Amazing results. I am so pleased, and am no longer terrified of the dentist. yay.

I have learned that the most important person in the status of your dental health is - the hygienist. I have been given the most attentive educational treatment by Dr. Thanik's hygienist that my whole mouth has changed. If you practice what she teaches you, you don't have to have unnecessary dental work.

If your gums are healthy and your teeth are clean, cavities and gums don't need grinding, filling and scraping.

Randi is always friendly and helpful."

"If you check Webster's Dictionary for the definitions of ethical, caring, honest, realistic, and genuine, you will see a picture of Dr. Thanik (with all the members of his staff in the background). While my experience with periodontists is limited and I have no basis for comparison, I can't expound on his technical skills and his interpersonal skills enough. I know why my dentist referred me to Dr. Thanik originally.

My recommendation of him and his staff is absolutely without hesitation."



"I highly recommend Dr. Thanik for implants. Extremely knowledgeable and does a thorough explanation of the procedure and expectations. Always makes me feel at ease. His staff is super nice and professional."



"Laser treatment was completely successful. Initial consultation was excellent, Dr. Thanik communicates well and listens thoroughly. The treatment itself was performed without any problems and no pain afterwards. I recommend him with no hesitation or caveats."



"Dr Thanik does a thorough job explaining the procedure during the consultation visit. The procedure itself was painless. I was impressed that he, himself, called to check how I was doing the next day. I am very satisfied and have had a great experience with the whole team. I would definitely recommend Dr Thanik for dental surgeries."



"I was very pleased with Dr Thanik and his assistant. I had gingival grafting for seven lower teeth to stop recession. Three on one side and four on the other. I had had previous periodontal work and was very unhappy with the dentist that performed it. He was very rough and didn't listen to my concerns. Dr Thanik listened, was very gentle and reassuring. It was a lot of grafting and harvesting of tissue but I felt comfortable during the whole procedure. My pain post treatment was not as much as I imagined it would be and I was on just acetaminophen the next day. His post op directions were clear and the office called to check on me after a couple of days. I did have to call the office for advice when I had excessive bleeding because I take warfarin and they were very helpful. I was in today for my 3 month check up and he was very pleased with the results as am I. I would highly recommend Dr Thanik and his staff for periodontal work. At first I though it was a lot of money but I had a lot of work done, very professional care and good results. It's always good to have your own teeth! Randi was very helpful with scheduling, answering questions and all around happy attitude. And they have a great new office space."



"I have had laser gum surgery by Dr Thanik. I find him very competent, professional and caring. My treatment was a success. His office staff is very friendly and makes everyone feel welcome. I would definitely recommend Dr Thanik to anyone needing a periodontist."



"Dr. Thanik did a gum graft for me which was pain-free and took wonderfully; it doesn't even look like it's been worked on. As a medical provider myself I am very impressed with Dr. Thanik's commitment to his professional development and knowledge of latest treatments and benefits available.

Dr. Thanik has such an excellent bedside manner and explains rational and alternatives to every recommendation he makes. I was very appreciative to the fact that he personally called a couple days post-procedure to see how I was doing. Dr. Thanik has a lovely sense of humor and is so personable you know he truly empathizes and has your best interest in mind.

Lori does such a wonderful job cleaning my teeth. She is thorough, personable, and is always smiling. About Front Desk: The office staff takes all the paperwork pain away. They submit all the necessary forms and work with your insurance so there are no surprises in the end."



"This was a "First" pleasant, dental experience I have ever had. WOW, to the infinite degree. Acute tooth/gum pain forced me to seek out help . . .and Dr. Thanik professionally and perfectly delivered relief, applying the smallest amount of "veneer" over the afflicted area using a teeny-tiny-brush. The process was painless, and in two minutes I was pain free.

Dr. Thanik is kind, friendly, and an attentive listener with good communication skills. He is invitational in his open ended questions, drawing you into conversation "with" him. He never talked "down" to me, He is polite and respectful.

He is genuine, unpretentious, and compassionate. Dr. Thanik, and assistant, both sat down at a table "with me," He is humble in spirit and demonstrated both amazing "chair side manners" and professional periodontal service!

I felt as if I got to know the gentleman first, and the "doctor" second, which I found refreshing. I felt very relaxed and safe, and what anxiety I entered his office with, soon dissipated.

I asked for cards to share with friends, and sheduled a second appointment! Though he was my "first pick" out of neccessity, He's now my "first pick" by choice! Thank you Dr. Thanik!!!"



"Dr. Thanik did several gum grafts for me. It has been three months, and they look fantastic-- no scars, no lingering pain, and complete restoration where I had serious recession. Great chair-side manner too. Thank you!"



"Dr. Thanik and his team are the best medical / dental office I have experienced. From the very first consultation, they were friendly, calming, patient, generous with their time and were very helpful in exploring different payment options. The treatment, which was an extensive gum graft in multiple areas of my mouth, went very well. Dr. Thanik and his team were skilled, calming, understanding and patient. Dr. Thanik followed up on the phone several times after the procedure. Great people! Great skill! Great service. This office is a 5 star class act that I recommend whole heartedly."



"I've struggled with periodontitis and gum recession for some years, and Dr. Thanik recently performed gingival (gum) grafting using a bio-compatible material on all my lower teeth. I held off on having this procedure performed for quite a while, because I wanted to try to reverse the situation with my own home care. When that proved difficult Dr. Thanik provided truly exemplary care, and now I wish I'd gone to see him about 3 years ago! His expertise is clearly unmatched, and both he and I couldn't be more pleased with my result. From start to finish, his entire office staff was nothing but supportive, warm, and well organized, and they ensured that I had the best possible experience. I felt very well cared for throughout! Moreover, as a physician myself, I was truly impressed with Dr. Thanik's competence and friendly bedside manner. He's a great doctor, and I can't imagine placing myself in better, kinder hands. The procedure itself was even easier than I'd hoped for, and I absolutely credit my terrific outcome to Dr. Thanik's expertise, care, and commitment to excellence. Thank you, Dr. Thanik--we need more doctors like you!"



"I was referred by my dentist because of sores on my cheeks and tongue. Dr Thanik identified the likely cause right away and reassured me that it was likely not cancer. He wanted to get pics before sending me to OHSU for a biopsy but when he came back, he had found my symptom in a book. Apparently, the symptoms of cinnanon allergy are very similar although mine were very extreme. I gave up my cinnamon gum and got immediate relief. Dr Thanik saved me a lot of pain and expense by catching that!"



"There are many positive reviews here for Dr. Thanik, all well deserved. His efficiency in word and work are amazing while still never appearing hurried. Moreover, I never even needed an aspirin after his services.

My dentist said that Dr. Thanik wowed a whole room full of dentists with his lecture demonstration. Use the guy who teaches others how to do this. Use Dr. Thanik."



"All the positives of other reviewers. Outstanding personal and professional skills and ethics. Absolutely will refer other patients to him. My regular dentist, who referred me to Dr. Thanik, has been extremely pleased with the outcome of gingival grafting. Dr. Thanik's phone call the day after surgery was most welcome and appreciated.

About Hygienist: All of Dr. Thanik's staff have been most pleasant and helped create a positive experience."



"Dr. Thanik performed gum surgery above two of my teeth. I was thrilled with the outcome and the whole experience. My initial consultation was quick, but thorough and informative. He explained that he thought he would have 90% success rate, how the procedure would go and what to expect. He took pre-op photos and sent me to the friendly front desk to schedule my surgery appointment, get an estimate, and get the pain meds ordered in advance of the surgery. His staff is very friendly and helpful.
The day of surgery was easy. He was on-time. It only took an hour. It was painless. He kept me informed of what was going on. I took a pain pill right after we were done. He explained again what I could expect and scheduled my two-week follow up appointment. He also gave me very thorough, easy instructions on how to care for the area in which I had surgery. Once the local anesthetic wore off it was painful that day, but the pain medicine did a fine job taking care of it. And the following day I did not need anything more than Advil. I was very pleased and impressed that Dr. Thanik called to check on me the next day. I told him I was feeling so much better."



"I had an implant done by dr. Thanik on august 6th 2008. It was absolutely incredible: no pain, no stress, fast and easy. He is very honest (he did not charged me for bone graft even if I was prepared for it and had no idea if he did it or not). Overall my impression is very positive and I would recommend him for everybody who needs an implant done by a specialist. The cost is average (he is not the cheapest but also not the most expensive one, Ive seen worst), he offers a discount for those who make the full payment."



"I was sent to Dr. Thanik by my regular dentist after he noticed a deep pocket above one of my molars. Dr. Thanik did a through exam, contacted my previous periodontist before recommending treatment. The laser surgery was quick and relatively painless. Recovery was also painless. I have had 3 follow up appointments and the area continues to heal nicely. I would recommend Dr. Thanik for any periodontal procedure."


"I have nothing but the highest praise for Dr. Thanik and his staff. He is an excellent periodontist with a fantastic personality. His office is immaculate and his staff is all knowledgeable and friendly. I had a dental implant and I could not be any happier with the results."


"I went through chemo several years ago that caused my teeth to deteriorate and crumble. Dr. Thanik listened and believed me when I told him about the chemo and the fact that I brush my teeth everyday. I would recommend Dr. Thanik to anyone that has ever had a bad time with their dentist. He is caring and will work with you, as a patient, and will go as slow as needed in any procedure. Thank you Dr. Thanik for understanding and believing in me when no one else would. "


"Doctor Thanik is a very kind, compassinate and talented, dentist, he is the best. I had negative implant issues from another dentist and Dr Thanik was able to help solve the problem. I wish I had known before hand that he did implants. I now know where I will go if I ever need future implants! Also, he has a very caring wonderful staff that makes you feel like family. I highly recommend Doctor Thanik. "


"I've always had a fear of dentist and neglected my teeth. Consequently I ended up with an upper plate and only 7 lower teeth, one of which was a molar that I relied on for chewing. It was rotting out badly and needed to be pulled leaving me with only 6 front teeth to chew with. Dr. Thanik pulled the molar and after the gums had healed he added 4 implants, 2 on each side and referred me to a good dentist, Dr. Go, who created 2 bridges , each with 4 new teeth. The whole procedure was a success and I'd heartily recommend Dr. Thanik to anyone considering getting implants. The Doctor and his staff are extremely helpful and friendly. "


"I had two other periodontal consultations last year before arriving in Dr. Thanik's office. Within minutes of talking with Dr. Thanik about my condition and treatment options I might need, I knew I was in the right place. I was interested in laser surgery rather than conventional surgery, and Dr. Thanik was in the process of acquiring state-of-the-art laser surgery equipment so he could provide this service to patients. After six months for complete healing post-surgery, measurements showed the results were quite dramatic. Of 25 perio pockets needing treatment (ranging from 4 to 9 millimeters), I was down to 3, and 2 of those were only slightly above the normal 2-3 mm range. I had conscious sedation for the surgery, very minimal discomfort afterwards, and no discernable swelling. Everything you read in these recommendations are true for both Dr. Thanik and his equally excellent staff. You feel like you are part of a great team of people absolutely dedicated to helping you restore and maintain good dental health. I will need bone grafting, a sinus lift, and an implant for one tooth. I have complete confidence in Dr. Thanik to see me safely through these additional procedures. I recommend Dr. Thanik and his staff highly!"


"Dr. Thanik was a consummate professional!!! I had to have 2 implants done at the same time, and my past experience with dentists has left me terrified of any type of dental work. One of my implants was a front tooth...so, it was traumatic as well. Dr. Thanik and his staff made this experience as stress free and tolerable as it could possibly be. He was very compassionate and understanding to my situation. He used everything available to make my experience pleasant. I'm very thankful that I went to him and would gladly recommend him to anyone in need of similiar services!!! "


"Outstanding personal and professional skills and ethics. Absolutely will refer other patients to him. My regular dentist, who referred me to Dr. Thanik, has been extremely pleased with the outcome of gingival grafting. Dr. Thanik's phone call the day after surgery was most welcome and appreciated. "


"Dr. Thanik was wonderful to work with! He was very friendly, and took time to explain everything to me. I was so happy with the results, he did a great job! The staff was very friendly, and always greeted me when I came in. The building itself looks a little old, and could be updated, but overall he was wonderful! "


"My gum graft went very smoothly with very little pain and a very quick recovery. Dr. Thanik was both professional and personable. The office was very pleasant and helped me to relax. His staff were all very curteous and friendly. While I hope I never need another graft, I would not hesitate to go back to Dr. Thanik."

I haven't had the procedure yet, but he made me feel relaxed and took away my anxiety, He was very pleasant and I would definitely recommend him!

I spent over a year with Dr. Thanik undergoing placement of 4 dental implants with removal of primary teeth due to congenital absence of the secondary teeth. I actually kind of enjoyed going to his office. It was fairly relaxing even though the bone grafts I needed after removal of my teeth were fairly painful for about 2 weeks. Placement of the implants themselves was not as painful as the bone grafts. Dr. Thanik was always very kind and explained everything in easy to understand language ( I happen to be a health professional). Appointments ran on time, parking was very easy, the office has a calm and quiet atmosphere, costs were explained up front. He mostly worked well in concert with my dentist although I wish they would have shared imaging studies more frequently so I would not have had them again at my dentist's office. I am very happy with my 4 implants thus far- having them now for 2 months. My dentist placed the crowns over the implants and they are looking and feeling fantastic. My teeth involved were premolars and I would NOT recommend investing in expensive temporary teeth. I could not eat with them and no one even noticed the gaps in my smile. I ended up not using them at all.

Dr Thanik and his team took such great care of me. I first came in to get a consultation done and I had X-rays and an exam. Then he decided I would need bone graphing in addition to the implant itself, which he said he could do in one surgery. The appointments leading up to the surgery went smoothly and so did the surgery. I was sore and swollen for longer than I expected but recovered just fine. Overall the surgery was a great success. I did not use my insurance so the cost was high but not as high as I had originally thought, and they were able to let us use care credit to do payments for two years with no interest. This was a great option for my family. The staff was always so friendly and had good bed side manner. I would definitely recommend this periodontist to anyone looking for one because the quality of care and the surgery outcome was just amazing and flawless. The front desk staff was always so friendly and would answer any questions I would have. They were always striving to please the patient which was very nice. They also open early and have early appointments which worked best in my case.

I was referred to Dr. Thanik by my regular dentist for a tooth implant on the upper right tooth which had broken off to the gum line. I met Dr. Thanik on 1/12/16 for a consultation. He explained everything to me in a highly confident and professional manner. I trusted him immediately. I imagined the pain of having to extract the rest of the root and then drive a titanium post in its place. Dr. Thanik offered a moderate IV sedation for the 1/28/16 procedure. The entire appointment went very well; all staff were so professional and easy-going. They made me feel relaxed and comfortable so I wasn't as nervous as I could have been. Dr. Thanik proceeded with the implant, talking to me all along the way about the progress. I was so surprised when they told me the dental surgery was over and it had been about 90 minutes but I felt as though I had only been there for 10 minutes! There was no pain, the entire procedure was very easy, and everything went very well. I have been back a couple of times for scheduled check-ups during the healing process. The office visits are efficient and always professional. Dr. Thanik is a master at his trade and I would highly recommend him for anyone needing a tooth implant. The chair-side assistant who may have also been the one to administer the IV was just so excellent! She did her job in a patient, kind and friendly way. This helps customers relax even more. The 4 times I have seen them they are always nice, friendly and very efficient. I never have to wait! They all seem to like their jobs.

following an accident in Jan, 2015, I required an implant on my left canine. dr. thanik was the best thing that happened to me. he is kind, gentle, extremely smart, skilled and completely honest with me and my expectations. while the entire process took 6 months, he didn't cut any corners despite my requests to speed it up. his staff were all very kind and supportive, as well. I would highly recommend dr. thanik for anyone's dental needs.
