I finally was able to get my teeth fixed. I had broken, missing, ugly teeth for so long i thought i would never be able to smile again. I called GENTAL DENTAL on Tanque Verde. From my firsrt visit i found everyone so nice. No long waits in the lobby. Dr. Maule and Dr. Ham are outstanding. I never thought I would enjoy going to a Dentist, but this time was a great experience. Have my new dentures and can smile again. Thanks to all of you. You have a great team.

Had procedure for a crown on Feb 25, 2021. I've had lots of crowns, and always get great service, but today, Mayra Gutierrez, the hygienist, did a "perfect" job--usually, it takes two or three attempts to get the temporary crown the right size/shape, but Mayra's skill got it to sit perfectly in my mouth the FIRST time, and that doesn't usually happen--they usually have to grind it down, replace, try again. I think that great result happened because of her attention to detail while placing the cord material around the gum, and I want to thank her and the dentist also. Really super job, Mayra!

I was very nervous to have my Peridontal Surgery. Dr Deebs explained everything. I am very pleased with my procedure and results. My pain was minimal afterwards which tells me he took great care. I paid out of pocket and it was worth it. I feel he went above and beyond. Patti at the front desk was very helpful. She is always a pleasure. The whole staff is great!

My partner suffers from extreme dental anxiety and they made the exception to let me stay in the backroom with them while they had an emergency tooth extraction. Dr. Ham was amazingly understanding. We are very grateful for the services provided <3

Truly a great Team operates GD Tri Pointe! 5 Stars. If you want your dental done quick yet dilligent, professionally and inexpensive; get an appointment quick, especially since this (sole) location has stayed open since Corona Pandemic hit and It functions like an Olympic relay race team full of Gold medalists.

My daughter was very afraid of dentists and being seen, but this location was so wonderful with her. Everyone was so very kind but especially the amazing gentleman that did her work-cleaning and the awesome office person that worked with us to make sure she got done what she needed. Thank you all so much for your kindness and great work...

I knew I had dental problems, loose, misaligned, and missing teeth, and bony growths in my jaw. I avoided smiling for years. Luckily I chose The Gentle Dental Tri-Point office to help. At the initial appointment I was met with multiple courteous, friendly and experienced staff. It was obvious they were very happy there with their work and co-workers. I saw Dr Nay, who diagnosed all the issues I was faced with. He went over the xray results meticulously explaining everything, and answered all questions in detail, explaining what to expect of the recommended procedures, which were extensive. I had extreme gum disease, deep pocket bone loss, and multiple large bony torus growths. They provided detailed cost estimates of the surgeries required. Partial upper/lower dentures, needing 14 extractions with 14 bone grafts, and torus surgical removals to make the dentures fit. Dr Nay did all the work himself flawlessly over nearly 4 hours. He was determined I would leave with all the promised work completed. I was so relieved and happy when I left! Little to no swelling or pain, I couldn't believe it went so well. The next day Dr Nay worked to get a perfect fit of the dentures to my few remaining teeth. Many staff stopped by to check on me, so nice of them. I can call at any time if any further issues at all as the needed weeks go by for grafts, and gums to settle in. I absolutely recommend Dr John Nay 100% with his dedication and expertise, his assistants Lorelei and Solange, and the front staff Patty, Reyna, and Jamie. We truly appreciate the kindness and friendliness of everyone there!
