5 Stars Very wonderful experience! Major surgery done and it has been just a blessing with Dr Valdes and the staff. Dr Kenney the surgeon was awesome and very good at his job. Dr Valdes is nothing less than incredible with his dental knowledge, ability to care for the patient both physically and mentally. He's just the best dentist, truly, that ive had in a very long time. I am already recommending Gentle Dental to everyone here.

I made an appointment to see the dentist because I had chipped one of my front teeth. I was given an appointment within a couple of days. Excellent service was provided from the very moment I walked into the office. Office manager Lindarosa greeted me with a huge smile and I was checked in and walked into the exam room within 5 minutes of my arrival and before my scheduled appointment time. Once in the exam room Angelica was very professional and prepared me for my exam. I was seen by Dr. Valdes. In detail Dr Valdes explained to me the options I had to fix my chipped tooth. With the information given to me I was able to make a decision on what procedure was best for me.I am extremely happy with the procedure and the service that was provided by the staff at Gentle Dental. I would recommend Gentle Dental to my family, friends, and coworkers. The service that is provided here is top notch. Thank you Lindarosa, Angelica, and Dr. Valdes for making my trip to the dentist a pleasant one.

Dr. Valdez was amazing and Amber my hygienist was so sweet and concerned about my comfort...I have quite a bit more work to be done and I'm not stessed about my next appointment! That says alot considering I was terrified of dentists. Everyone in the office was so nice...5 stars guys!!!

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.

  • Low down payment and no interest1
