Dr Susman has been my dentist for many years. I could go somewhere closer to my house but it's worth a longer trip to get the outstanding level of customer service she and her staff provide.

I love this office for many reasons especially because they have excellent continuity of service. Dr. Susman has been here for 14 years she was so kind and helped me relax and feel comfortable. Dr. Honigman is known for being extremely competent and has been here for 6 years. Ciraten in the front office is lively, fun, and everybdy loves her. Some calls herself, “the German lady”. Michelle did my cleaning she took a lot of time just to put my nerves at ease. She had been here 4 years. Even though I live on my the far west side and it’s worth the drive! Outstanding experience. You want to come here. My previous dentist had a lot of turn over 7 different dentists and never the same hygienist over the years. If you are going somewhere and the dentist changes often you have a problem. This is place is so much better.

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.
