I had a great experience at gentle dental. Dr. Delsnyder was super nice and Lisa and her assistant Ameia were awesome, and super professional. Lisa did such a good job cleaning my teeth and explaining the procedure as she went. She was super knowledgeable about everything. I definitely will be requesting Lisa and Ameia for my next dental appointment.

ving had nothing but awful dental experiences, I was afraid going into this appointment. What I experienced this morning was a great surprise. The office was friendly and accommodating. The staff listened to my fears and took steps to help alleviate them. I was numbed to my satisfaction; this has never happened before. I was offered a blanket to keep me comfortable. The dentist and his assistants were calming, funny, and gentle. I highly recommend Dr. Garber and his staff. Freda.B

Dr. Garber gave me 2 root canals that were painless! Still can’t believe that I didn’t feel much. He explains things from beginning to end. I drove all the way from Surprise and would do it again. His staff is amazing and nice too. Highly recommend them.

I'd like to thank Antionette Billick (practice manager) for her impeccable and diligent service as she ensured all documents/X-rays for my release of records (as I recently moved to Sedona) were in order and assisted me in payment of my crown (complete breakdown of all payments/balances.) I also like to give a shout out to Liz Pierce (my registered dental hygienist) for taking extra care of me during my periodontal treatments, Georgina (who always greets me with a smile) and Dr. Thompson (who has been my dentist for 10 years plus). These folks pull out all the stops to assure that their patients receive nothing but top notch service with a smile. ;-) Thank you Gentle Dental for the 20 years of stellar service!

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.
