I took my grandaughter for her 1st ever dental cleaning appointment. Being nervous as she was, I didn't think I'd get her 10 yr old self through the door. But managed that 1 hurdle. Lynzee the front office manager was the 1st to greet us and get us checked in. She noticed my grandaughters anxiety in her face & I told her it's her 1st ever dental exam. She calmed her a bit by giving her a small tour of dental office. This was more I think of a ploy to get her little mind off of things. So we could talk about payment options (I chose the dental insurance plan since I knew she'd need to return in 6 months). Lynzee then introduced her to the assistant (I do believe the assistants name to be Lee). OMG! Awesome! Lynzee explained to Lee this was my grandaughters 1st time in the chair. Lee seemed to know about anxiety of that 1st visit. She took her into the exam room showed & explained what things did or were used for in the exam room. Just seeing the anxiety turn into curiosity was super calming for me. Even held her little hand as they pulled her little floppy baby tooth before her cleaning. Definitely made things easier for myself & for my grandaughter. Will definitely be back again for any of her needs.

Lynzee was very helpful in setting up my appointment with a Doctor to do a ruite cleaning and check up. When I had questions or concerns she was able to answer them with ease which made me feel better as a patient. I meet Lee while she was assisting a doctor she was very thoughtful and efficient while helping to prep me and clean my teeth then she was the one to help me check out for the day and helped me set up aplan for next times vist. I can't wait to come here again and experience this clean feeling of happiness.

New patient as an emergency with a broken molar. Was able to get in the very next day, new patient established, with precrown work done and now waiting for permanent crown. Terrified to see a dentist, but love that they took the time to make sure I was comfortable and calm. So glad my dental insurance changed and forced me to find a new dentist.

You guys! I have been a client of Gentle Dental Desert Winds for over 5 years now and I can’t even picture myself going any where else! The office staff is AMAZING and always willing to work with me on payment arrangements for any work needed, and Dr. Lee has been the most helpful, patient and educational practitioner I’ve ever seen. If you’re not in love with your current dentist and just go to them because you NEED to, I recommend you try these amazing people!

About Payment
