My 93 yr. old dad is hard to please. That being said, he and I are completely thrilled to have found Gentle Dental T-Bird. Super easy to make an appt., the front office staff greet us with a smile and are very friendly and professional. Dr. Bingham and his assistant, Melissa, are top notch! My dad has had two extractions, cleaning, filling and a partial made from this great team. No pain, no waiting, and most of all...their prices are totally FAIR. They are NOT out to make a quick buck with their patients. They are knowledgeable, professional, and kind. They treat my dad like he is part of their family. Kuddos to everyone!! xoxo

I came in roughly 2 weeks ago to get 2 teeth pulled and Dr. Ashraf is very good and he communicates with you the steps he is taking during the procedure I have never had that at a dentist office, he also called me later that day to make sure i was doing ok, thank you Dr. Ashraf. Today 8/26/19 I came in for my post-opt exam from 2 weeks ago to make sure everything is ok and it was except for one of my teeth that had been giving me problems during those 2 weeks waiting for my post-opt. Well they decided to do full exam x-rays, and they ended up pulling 3 teeth 2 more than I thought. Melissa was great on helping me stay calm and breath and she even let me give her hugs after everything was done, she is so nice and friendly we laughed and talked about our kids. The only down side to this last visit is I let them know that I couldn't take hydrocodone and he oopsed and wrote me the same script as last time. He was very busy today so I totally understand the mistake, I called their office and let know about the mistake and spoke with Sandra and she no problem calling me in another script for a pain medicine that I can take, thank you Sandra your a sweetheart😊. I will recommend them to my friends and anyone else who is looking for a good, trusting dentist that makes you comfortable going to the dentist. Thank you all you guys are good😊

Dr. Binghim is a perfectionist I went in for a crown and he didn’t like the way it fit so he sent it back so it would be a perfect fit instead of just putting the I’ll fitted crown on so I don’t run into problems down the road. Melissa the dental assistant is the best! She is so nice and funny, I really don’t like going to the dentist so she makes it a lot more comfortable for me! Thank you Melissa you’re the sweetest!

Dr. Bingham is by far the kindest and most gentlest dentist I have ever seen! I have PTSD and am terrified of the dentist and he was so understanding and made sure I was doing ok several times during the procedure. Dr. Bingham THANK YOU so much!! Oh and I didn't feel a thing!

I’ve been going to this location for several years now and I love this office. I always see Dr Hamblin but this last time I saw Dr Bingham and he is every bit as good and professional as Dr Hamblin. I had to have the injection in the roof of my mouth and I swear to God, I hardly felt it. WOW is all I can say, that’s a first. And Melissa, his assistant, is just as awesome, very friendly, very detailed and very professional.

I’ve been coming to this office for two years now. They’re not a perfectly oiled machine, but everyone who works there gives 110%. Sometimes I wait longer than I want, sometimes they run out of water and you have to wait. Really these are minimal issues in relation to the amazing attitudes and personalities of the staff. I usually just get my teeth cleaned by Nedra, because her Dental is so Gentle. I recently got to work with Melissa, who really made me feel loved. She must be an awesome mom, because I felt like she cared about my comfort and experience. I don’t like dental work done on myself, I really am coming for the people here and how they make me feel.

I had a very good experience at Gentle Dental. The hygienist Nedra is very knowledgeable and VERY gentle. She did a very good job at making me feel comfortable and kept checking on me periodically to make sure that I was not in pain. Dr. Bingham is also a very good dentist and I was impressed at how fast and painless the procedure was. I am happy to say that I have found my new dental home. Thank you all!

My experience was awesome. The staff was wonderful, and caring. When the dentist gave my anesthetic i didnt even feel it thats what you call a GENTLE DENTAL. I am so grateful because I thought I was lose this tooth but he was able to save it and for that I am so grateful. I have found a good dentist and i would recommend it to anyone and i will be returning for my follow ups!
