I was a patient here when they were An Elegant Smile and was very happy with them. The only reason I left was bc they weren't open on the weekends. I went to Dental Depot and that was a mistake. I came back and am just as happy as I was when I left. Now they're Gentle Dental, Rio Vista. They explain what is going on with your teeth, what treatment plan needs to be done, and schedule you while you're in the office. The staff is always friendly and very good at putting you at ease. On the opposite, Dental Depot (Greenway) barely gave me anything more than "You need thousands of dollars worth of work", but I could never seem get them to go into detail about what was needed and why without playing 20 questions. They were always confused that I was ready to schedule my next appointment in the office and would tell me to just call when I was ready... Um... I was... I've missed An Elegant Smile/Gentle Dental and I'm so glad to be back! If there were to be any "complaint" it's that when I tried to establish them as my dentist with Cigna, their information was difficult to find in Cigna's system. Perhaps they're listed by a corporate phone number.

From the minute I walked in, I knew it was going to be another great visit to the dentist and seriously, who says that? No one likes the dentist, but everyone here is amazing. They care about you and your safety. They talk to you to make you feel safe and comfortable. Then they laugh with you and want to learn about you as though you are family. I can't express enough how I enjoy my visits. Thank you Gentle Dental Rio Vista for being so great!

I cannot even say how much I love this office. I have always hated going to the dentist, but Jackie is the reason I came back. She connected with me during my first appointment, and she’s always so kind and friendly. Dr. Patel and Shay did such a great job. They all create such a warm and welcoming environment. I will definitely be staying with this office.

Great staff all the way around from the minute you walk through the door. My hygienist Naidra was amazing and comforting. The dental assistant Jackie, who worked with the Doctor on my mouth was super wonderful. I told her how nervous I was and she lovingly put me at ease. Thank you Gentle Dental.

My dental hygienist, Neidra (I hope I spelled that correctly) was excellent. It's the little things I noticed. She was thorough and extremely careful. One of the most pleasant cleanings I've ever had. The front staff was extremely polite, efficient, and courteous. I drive out of my way to come here because they do such a great job.
