I’ve been going here for about a year and I haven’t been more satisfied with a dentist! Dr. Stevenson is great and the rest of the staff are very friendly. This place doesn’t try to up-sell you like a lot of dentists/doctors and they are very prompt with appointments. I’ve never waited more than 15-20 mins to be seen. And they always seem to have an appointment available whenever I need.

Gental Dental is the best dentist I have come in contact with. Oscar and Blair at front desk are always happily ready to help me and schedule me for my next appointment in a flash. The hygienist Simi and Assistant Yari are incredible people and dentists as well. They are caring enough to supply me with tooth paste and mouthwash to help with my specific needs, and I know that every time I leave I can expect an exceptional and detailed clean of my teeth. I have been very satisfied with Gental Dentals service and I highly recommend anyone come here for all of their dentistry needs.

Another great visit . . . and much appreciated during these continuing, challenging and tumultuous coronavirus times. It's funny how people take things like going to the dentist for granted. But my recent visit, especially, was like a treat as I'm pretty much stuck in quarantine like many other people. The employees at Gentle Dental make it a treat as they are so kind and efficient, also with wonderful senses of humor. They make you feel comfortable and are very personable, and make sure your needs are met. My heroes are hygienist MICHELLE, assistant LAURA, and office staff OSCAR and BLAIR. They are the GREATEST, they get the job done -- and you leave with a good, appreciative feeling as well as a healthy mouth. Kudos to them! Ian :)

Honestly, I was a bit skeptical about taking my kids in to see the dentist here, due to all the bad reviews posted online. But, I have to admit they were VERY PATIENT with my kids and NEVER saw them get upset when I had to calm down my kids. When I went in they had my insurance information pulled up and no out of pocket costs were going to apply. After the exam, they provided me with an estimate for the extra work that had to be done. They were able to get everything done right there and then, without scheduling a follow up. My kids left happy, even after their work. I would always prefer pediatric dentists, but honestly Gentle Dental proved the negative reviews wrong. Thank you to all the staff that helped with my kids exam. :)

Michelle, Dr. Stevenson, and Laura were so kind, patient, and extremely professional. I’m really glad I chose this office for my dental appointments. I live 20 minutes away but I feel that it’s worth the drive. Everyone is wonderful even the front office staff. I had two cavities and inflamed gums and they were so gentle and patient through out my whole cleaning and filling procedure. Laura even gave me a blanket because I got really cold in one of the rooms. Very thoughtful. I highly recommend this place!

Like everyone, I dreaded having to go see the endodontist. Not only is Dr Garber easy on the eyes, I had a lovely experience. He and his staff were patient and kind. Additionally I did not feel taken advantage of. He told me I did not need a root canal but instead had a cracked filling and could get it filled at my dentist or gentle dental. Which ever I preferred. It was a welcome surprise that he sent me on my way no additional out of pocket costs or procedures needed. :)

Friendliest place ever, I would recommend it to anyone and everyone. I would give them 6 stars if I could. I get regularly seen by Dr.Stevenson, Michelle, Zemira and Laura. I brought my 2 year old son and they went out of their way to accommodate me and my family. I couldn’t imagine trusting anyone else with our dental hygiene.

They were quick and efficient. They did a thorough check-up and provided feedback to what they think I should do without being pushy or “money hungry” which you will often get from health care providers. I’ll be using them as my new dental providers from now on

I’m a new patient and I had a great experience at Gentle Dental. When I called to make an appointment, I didn’t have to wait long till I was helped out and even got in the very next morning. All of my questions were answered and they were very helpful. I used to Dread going to the dentist prior to Gentle Dental. I have allways felt the pain when getting work done. That was not the case here, this experience has honestly changed the way I look at goin to the dentist. Thanks guys
