Been going to this location for years. Never had a bad experience. My hygienist Lisa and her assistant, sorry don't know here name but do know she is from Boston, are wonderful.They are both very personable and professional and a treat to talk too. Lisa is very knowledgeable and helpful. I have had many Hygienists but Lisa is by far the best. One side note, the lobby music is too loud. :)

Super nice staff. Good doctors. They are all friendly. And I like that they are very transparent about pricing and what they are doing. You will have all the information before you decide to do anything. And they are very professional. Edit 10/09/2019 : Keep coming back here. Awesome people and very good quality.

Great service and even better people!! I have never felt so comfortable and welcomed to a doctors office like I felt at this location! The front secretaries are literally the sweetest people. Plus, all the nurses and doctors are able to answer your questions until you can genuinely understand what is going on in your mouth!! Highly recommended and 10/10 will be returning.

I’ve been coming here for years. The staff is always friendly and professional. Lisa is a great hygienist and I’ve never had a bad experience with her. She’s super friendly and very knowledgeable when it comes to teeth. She never keeps me waiting and always greets me with a smile. I’ve been through several hygienist in my life and i would have to say she is the very best by far. I will continue to visit Gentle Dental as long as Lisa is there!

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.

  1. Valid photo ID and checking account, credit card or debit card required.
  2. On approved credit. For promotional purchases over $300 if paid in full within promotional period. If promotional purchase is not paid in full within promotional period, interest will be imposed from the date of purchase at 26.99% APR.
