        I had to get a root canal and was relieved to see that I did not feel any pain during the process. The doctor was great and gentle. Hopefully I do not need another root canal but if I do I will definitely go back! Thank you Gentle Dental!

        Not only was this my first visit to this location, but a new customer as well. Stephanie, at the front was super amazing with getting me the paperwork fast and explained the info. She was very nice and helpful. Eliza, the Practice Manager, rocked on the x-ray equipment and made me feel comfortable and at ease throughout the process. Absolute joy. And Dr. Rod was super cool. Great bedside manner. And lastly, Victor, cleaned my teeth like a boss. Thats why they call this place Gentle Dental. Super amazing experience. I was very impressed with the staff and procedures. I will be coming back again and recommending to family and friends!

        I had an amazing experience with the Gentle Dental family. The front office staff was very friendly and Elisa was very quick with paperwork. My ex rays were quick and painless; as was my cleaning. Dr. Rodriguez was thorough and personable! This was by far the best office I’ve been to! I will be returning regularly!

They don't try and upsell anything and just want to make sure they help you to a happy healthy mouth. Thank you!

        If I could I would give them a 10 star rating but there are only 5. Since day one, they have been very professional and have been there through the whole process for me. I want to say thank you to Janelle, Damian, Raquel, and Andrea for always making me feel welcomed and making me always look forward to my next appointment.
