Loved this place. We don’t know anyone here that can watch our 3 year old and so I had to bring him. The ladies in the front were so sweet and helped out. He made new friends and I got to see the dentist. Very nice place.

This is by far my favorite place. I am a nervous dentist goer and the people here just have a way of making me feel better. Everyone is super nice, the front desk ladies, every dentist and assistant there. Went to a few other places before here and this place just gives off the right vibes. They actually care about you and your teeth.

Deer Valley Gentle Dental has been a pleasure to work with! When my tooth was broken at the 7th street and Bell office and they refused to take responsibility in any way or even return my calls, leaving my to have to lose my tooth and pay for an expensive implant, Jody at the Deer Valley office stepped up and contacted me and their office is making great strides to assist me in affording the work necessary. They have proven that money is not more important the the well being of their patients. Thank you Jody and all the staff at Deer Valley Gentle Dental!

After moving to Phoenix from out of state, I found myself with some dental issues and no dentist. I found Gentle Dental and was not disappointed. Nobody likes going to the dentist, but the entire staff was amazing, warm, and welcoming every time I had to go in. I ended up having to see Dr. Luinstra for several things, and she was great. The majority of my visits, Dr. Luinstra was assisted by Brandi. She was amazing, always calming my nerves by explaining what to expect, having casual conversations, and joking with me. I look forward to going back for my cleaning in March! Huge thanks to the whole staff there for making going to the dentist seem much less dreadful!

Questions about Insurance?

If you have dental insurance and are concerned about coverage do not hesitate to reach out to our friendly staff. Our team here at Gentle Dental will help you with any payment or insurance questions you may have and will work closely with you to help you get the most out of your dental plan.

About Payment

Gentle Dental aims to be as gentle on your wallet as our dentists are when providing treatment. Our professional staff will help you get the most from your dental insurance benefits and explain any deductibles and co-pays to you.

Payment options include cash, major credit cards, discount plans, and private financing.

The Gentle Dental Smile Plan

The Gentle Dental Smile Plan is perfect if you don’t have dental insurance and offers significant savings. The plan has no waiting period, involves no paperwork, and covers all pre-existing conditions.

You can enroll as an individual, couple or family and receive significant discounts on preventative services including exams, cleanings, fluoride treatments, and x-rays, as well as a host of other dental services. All other services including specialty care such as extractions, root canals, and orthodontics are discounted 20% from our list prices.

The Smile Plan is effective immediately and there are no claim forms to fill out and no maximums. Seniors 62 and older receive additional discounts on enrollment fees and parents can keep children on their family plan until age 26.

Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for everyone to obtain quality dental care at an affordable price.

To sign up or for questions, please call us at 800-277-1112.

You can also enroll at one of our locations.

We understand that you don’t always have the cash at hand, that’s why we accept most major credit cards and offer flexible financing options which can be helpful if you require more extensive work, orthodontics, or cosmetic procedures that aren’t covered by insurance. These plans can offer:

  • Low down payment and no interest1
  • No money down and no interest2
  • Extended terms up to 48 months at 14.9% promotional interest rates3

We want to make paying for dental services as easy as possible. For more information, call us toll-free at 1-800-GENTLE1 to get in touch with the Gentle Dental Office in your neighborhood.
