This is the best dental place I've ever been to! Everyone is so friendly! I got a deep clean today, with scaling and I could've fallen asleep during the procedure! Luis was my hygienist, super nice and gentle. Jacob was informative before and after about pricing and aftercare. The front desk is always very friendly! Thank you Gentle Dental! See u in January!

DR GREEN---THAT FUCKING MOTHER FUCKER FUCKED UP MY TEETH ON PURPOSE...AND HAD THAT FUCKING MOTHER FUCKER
HAD THE NERVE TO CHARGE ME OVER $200 DOLLARS FOR HIS FUCKING BULLSHIT! I HAD TO REVERSE ALL OF HIS FUCKING CHARGES...CLOSE OUT ALL MY CREDIT CARDS...REVERSE ALL OF HIS FUCKING CHARGES. I HAD TO FIND ANOTHER CREDIBLE DENTIST ...and repair the damages to my TEETH...to find out that Green's dental damages were beyond repair! Now I have live with the discomfort that THAT FUCKING MOTHER FUCKING ASSHOLE HAS CAUSED ME.

BOTH THE BUSINESS MANAGER ...AND THE OWNER HAVE CONTACTED ME TO TRY TO SAVE FACE. FUCK THOSE FUCKING MOTHER FUCKING CROOKS. ALL OF THOSE OF THOSE GLOWING REMARKS ARE NOTHING BUT A BUNCH OF FALSE AND GLOWING PHONY REMARKS.

JUST LOOK AT THEIR OFFICES...THEY ARE LUCKY TO HAVE ONE OR TWO CLIENTS PER DAY.

Very professional. I hadn't been to a dentist in many years. I was terrified to go. I am beyond glad I went. This has been a really amazing experience for me. My first time having cavities. No pain. Best part it they were upfront with the payment before I made an appointment. I highly recommend this dental office. Thank you for the best experience and customer service.

They are the absolute best there! I have always hated going to the dentist. Needless to say I put off my cleaning for quite a while. It was not a traumatic experience and there was no judgment because I had not been to the dentist. Now, I find myself looking forward to seeing them. The only complaint that I have is that the picture on the back wall is hung too low to see when you are reclined in the chair.

the front desk staff are wonderful, and friendly. they are very helpful for calling a couple days before your appointment, and if you have to make changes they work with you at that time, or when you call in.

I was very impressed and grateful for the treatment I recieved at Gentle Dental by Dr. Vu and his assistant Joseph. They were both very professional, yet caring and gentle. They also took time to give me special instructions after my treatment. I highly recommend this clinic to anyone needing dental work. Thank you so much for your service.

I’ve been a patient at this clinic for years now and I love them! I have some serious dental anxiety, and not great teeth due to lack of fluoride as a child. Dr Green is THE best, very calm, and understands my personal situation in health concerns. All of the assistants and hygienists here are top notch professionals. What prompted me to write a review today is the front desk person, Lisa, recently helped me with a situation above and beyond. I recently had a root canal at another office, and afterward there was some major confusion causing a stressful situation. Lisa totally calmed me down by clarifying the issue, explaining procedure to me and reassuring me that everything was fine. She’s been there a long time, is highly knowledgeable, and always shows concern for her patients. I can’t recommend this office, staff and the fabulous Dr Green enough! Great place! 👍🏽

Gentle Dental is a well run practice. They send notifications before appointments, and when I show up, they’re ready on time. The two assistants I’ve had have performed thorough and painless cleanings. Dr. Green explains procedures clearly. He makes crowns fit perfectly. Procedures have all been completely painless. After patronizing them for a couple of decades, I’ve finally lost my fear of dentistry that lingered after the bad old days of slow drills and marginally effective anesthetics.
