I just transferred to this GD location. What a great decision! First of all the dentist has been there about 20 years. At my other location there was a new dentist every six months or so. Staff is very pleasant and very skilled at their jobs. I just had a crown ... the most pain-free experience I’ve had ever! Appointments are on time as well. I feel this was the right move for me- very pleased with this office in general!

I can't tell you I like going to the dentist but I can say I no longer dread it since I became a client of Gental Dental East Bell. Dr. Haghighat is upbeat and trustworthy, Miss Monica, my dental hygienist, is thorough and efficient yet exceptionally gentle and patient, and the office staff is attentive and and cheerful. Thank you Nicole, Practice Manager, for such a warm welcome today; your friendly demeanor put me at ease immediately.

I've always had a fear of dentist but DR Haghighat has put that fear to rest. I no longer have anxiety when needing dental work. I did not feel a single injection and him and his team kept me laughing the whole procedure. AMAZING Dentist and Team!

I've been in several times now and every visit has been a very pleasant. Both Dr. Haghighat and Dr. Adashek are kind and do everything they can to ensure your comfort and understanding. They really are gentle, too! I do also appreciate the assistants, I forgot the name of the first one, but Thanh is the sweetest! She knows how to talk casual mixed with professional. The women at the front desk are also very helpful when it comes to setting appointments and working through finances.

This has by far been the best dental experience I’ve had!! There was a misunderstanding with scheduling a cleaning, but the front office staff went above and beyond to get both of my kids cleaning done today since I took the day off of work to bring them in. The dentist was friendly and the hygienist was awesome. I can’t say enough about how great both the front and back office staff are here!!

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.

Flexible Financing

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.
