Tam Pham is my Dental Hygienist - she’s great, very thorough & professional. She makes reasonable recommendations for my personal dental care that will improve my dental health. Additionally, a few months ago I had a crown come loose. I used a temporary adhesive to reattach it until I could get in to see my dentist. The staff at Gentle Dental removed the crown, cleaned everything up, and put it back in place. After x-raying, it was determined that the crown was sound & did not have to be replaced with a new one. It was securely cemented back in place and I was able to avoid what would have otherwise been a rather substantial dental bill.

I had a very positive experience with this Doctor. I came in with a few major problems and the staff accompanied to all my needs. Not only that but the Doctor made sure I was in no pain or discomfort throughout the procedures. They explained every thing throughly and answered all my questions.

Have had major anxiety in regards to dentist visits due to experiences in the Marine Corps and childhood. Dr. Chow and his assistant were incredible at putting me at ease. They explained everything and continually asked how I was doing. To think an extraction is now my fondest dental memory. Great job all the way around starting at the front desk. Thank You.

I’ve been coming here for a few years. The ladies in the front are always friendly. Tam is wonderful. She’s cares about what she’s doing and always advises on how to improve the health of your gums. She’s funny and makes every visit pleasant and not stressful.

I was very scared to go to the dentist, knowing that I needed to have work done (ie a crown and a filling) and that some of my teeth are so sensitive. I knew I had to get this stuff done plus a cleaning. Dreading it all. I told the hygenist Tam, the dental assistant (can't remember her name) and Dr. Richins of my anxiety. They all could not have been more awesome at putting me at ease and getting done what needed to be done. They always asked if I was doing okay through the whole procedure. They are also all very friendly and professional. I have been searching for over 15 years for someone that I felt comfortable with. I thought the name "Gentle Dental" was just a gimmicky name to get you in the door, only to have a bad, painful experience. My experience was just the opposite and I'm so very grateful and can't thank you all enough!

This place blows my mind. The two beautiful ladies up front are always warm and welcoming! Tam, my hygienist, never fails to make me feel right at home. Always makes sure I’m comfortable and taken care of. Even the dentist, everyone is just so amazing. They’re all such genuine, down to earth people. Great for kids, or adults. Definitely recommend Gentle Dental Ahwatukee as your preferred dentistry!!! THANK YOU GUYS!

My entire experience at gentle dental was wonderful. Tam was awesome when it came to my deep cleaning. I also was pleased when she said she and I were in it together when comes to getting my teeth back to where they need to be. She was sweet throughout my cleaning making sure I wasn’t in any pain and always apologized when she felt that I was in pain or hurting. I was never in any pain more but she always checked.

Love, love, love this office and Tam. I hated going to the dentist, like more than anything but I bit the bullet and went in this week. I got Tam Pham Dao (I hope I got that lovely ladies name right) as my hygienist and she was amazing. I went in first on Wed and she did half my mouth and then back on Friday for the other side. I never felt a thing, she kept checking on me while she was cleaning to make sure I was comfortable and she made it super easy. I'll never see another hygienist again. It's Gentle Dental and Tam from now on.
