This place is AWESOME! I made an appointment for my mom who had a swollen tooth ache dealing with loads of pain. Her original dentist was not available and had to change. I am SO glad Laura and Emily helped me out in getting her set up here as a new patient, checking the insurance, and getting the help my mom needed the next day. The whole experience was peaceful. Also that they really were gentle! 😊 Thank you all who helped there! From the reception to the dentists themselves! All super nice. 👍

Pros Friendly doctors and assistance Fast and accurate during the job Painless Cons Waiting room for a bit Person that answers the phone needs to be more positive The people in the front need to communicate better with insurance and customers. They messed up and overcharged(they fixed) Overall not bad.

I Was seen as a New Patient Recently and I have bad dental anxiety! Elise Took such good amazing care of me! She was very gentle kind and funny, made the experience so easy for me and was very awesome by stopping and taking the time to explain everything to me which was incredible because most places care more about getting in and out patients to make more money instead of taking the time to explain everything too me but she was quick and on top of things for the Dr as well ready too go. Then, Dr Chow came in and also took the time to speak and hear me out as well and explain everything to me as well which was a bonus for me!!!! They sure are a awesome team together! I would refer family members to them!! THANK YOU YOU GUYS FOR THE EXPERIENCE!

I am always nervous about going to the dentist. I had to have three fillings and was pretty apprehensive. Dr. Chow was very patient and caring. He explained everything that he was going to do before he proceeded and made sure I was comfortable with it. It was a very good experience.

I was very nervous and self conscious about going into Gentle Dental at first becuase it had been a while since my last dentist appt, but everyone there very comfortable and was very supportive Throughout the whole process.. I have returned several times for multiple fillings and most recently wisdom tooth extraction a and I couldn't be more happy with my experience here. From the front desk interns to the doctors, everyone is nice and helpful. I would recommend Gentle Dental to anyone looking for dental work!

I took my son to Gentle Dental and he hasn't gone in years because of a phobia he has about going. He was having a lot of pain and his cheek was swelled up pretty good. I was getting desperate because not a lot of places take his insurance and if they did, they didn't have room to see him. When we called Gentle Dental, they not only understood his insurance (its HMO) but they got him in right away. You could tell it was a busy office with a lot going on but the front office girls did a great job juggling it all and being really nice to everyone. The dentist (Dr. Chow) was super nice and explained everything really well. He referred us to a specialist that they have right there at the same office. My son even said he would go back again to have his teeth cleaned after he gets this one taken care of. Great office! He will definitely be back ...and that's a miracle! Thank you!

Dr. Garber is truly fantastic!! He is so gentle and really makes you feel like he cares. He’s done 3 root canals for me and is fantastic I can’t remember the name of the dentist that pulled my tooth but I would not recommend her. She isn’t always at that office but she was not gentle, unprofessional, and overall it wasn’t a good experience. Maybe because I was her last extraction for the day but I will not allow her to do anymore work on my mouth. Dr. Chow is fantastic and so kind. As long as you don’t get a female dentist that handles the extractions your good to go. The front desk ladies are so sweet and kind. I’ve seen some bad reviews saying Janet was rude but that has never been what I’ve seen ever.
