I have periodontal disease. Gentle Dental personnel, especially my hygienist Micehelle Allen, have been instrumental in keeping the disease at bay. Recently, through Gentle Dental, I started using Perio Protect and in my exam today there was a marked improvement. I am impressed and grateful to Gentle Dental for saving my teeth. Thank you!

Oddly enough, the oral surgeon (Dr. Baddam) might be my favorite doctor here. She’s very direct and to the point, but I appreciate that about her. She and her assistant, Tee, had me laughing while I was getting three teeth pulled out. They are quick, efficient, and comforting. The front desk staff is also amazing and I have had several other great encounters with other staff (who I do not remember the names of but they’re really wonderful) but Dr. Baddam, Tee, and the front desk staff are the main reason for this five star review.

I am 83 years old, have my own teeth so have had lots of dental work and dentists through the years. Never have I had such caring service as I did here, and it was for a root canal etc. so I am not just talking about simple procedures. Every single person here seems to care about their patients. And the staff seem to truly enjoy what they are doing and are fun and cheerful not just with patients but also each other!

My experience at this Scottsdale Gentle Dental was hands down the best Dental experience I've ever had in my life and I've had a lot of experiences. I'm from Washington. I came down here on a vacation and to also get some dental work done that I didn't have time for back home. I was nervous at first, but this staff is by far the best that has ever taken care of me and my teeth. From Oscar at the front desk greeting me and getting me smoothly checked in, to Laura who was super friendly and bubbly. She got all my x-rays done in one go which is a first time experience for me. She definitely knew exactly what she was doing and she was the first to help my nerves wash right away. After the x-rays the I met the wonderful Dr.Stevenson. He came right in and told me everything I needed to know about what I was really looking at. He laid out the complete ground work for what needed to be done that day and for my future. Frist Doctor to really put into perspective all that I have to get done. He left me question-less which is also a first. Then came the real work on getting the first half of my teeth cleaned which was done by Simi whom was exceptionally thorough. She continously made sure I was comfortable and made sure to leave no spot unattended. She didn't rush like most others have in my experiences. As the cleaning was being done I met Yari. Even she didn't miss beat. She came in 3 differnt times to get quick x-rays done to make sure every spot was being cleaned to perfection for Simi to finish. The mid way x-rays were a little difficult for me being numb, but Yari was in and out and also made sure I was still comfortable throughout it all. There was even another employee named Michelle who would walk by occasionally and helped my experience and the atmosphere be that much more calming. EVEN the office manager Jessie took the time to come back and check on me. She wanted to be sure someone like me who is coming from out of state had a wonderful experience which is also a first. Honestly, It was so amazing to meet and to know that the whole staff from beginning to end were all very positive and uplifting people. This office has the best Dental environment I've ever been apart of. It's not easy, especially when a dental office can be busy and people's needs and nerves can be high. Everyone of them did one exceptional job. I honestly can't wait for my next appointment on Thursday.  Which is another frist for me to be excited about an appointment. They definitely do their job right and they do what it best for their patients. If I have to come back down for big dental work I will not hesitate because you can't beat the kind of service and atmosphere they have! Thank you all for you amazing work, I already feel more confident than ever!

I would give Dr Garber and his team 10 stars if I could! Dr Garber is so friendly and non judgmental. He really knows his stuff. Oscar is a gem! He explained everything in simple terms and was so attentive to my comfort and concerns. Same with Desi. She helped me tremendously with a treatment decision. Her insight was a game changer. It was a wonderful experience, and I highly recommend them!
