I went to Gentle Dental and had a thorough teeth cleaning done by Kristen. Lets be honest no one really enjoys getting cleanings because their mouth hurts afterwards but the experience here really made an impact on me. From walking in the door and getting a friendly greeting to leaving I must say the team in Bakersfield is phenomenal, check in was smooth and I was attended promptly. Kristen was so sweet and gave me some helpful tips on brushing as well as a possible switch in toothpaste thats not as rough on my teeth. If youre looking for quality I would absolutely recommend Gentle Dental and Kristen.

Gentle Dental is truly the gentlest dental experience I’ve ever had. From the office staff, to the tranquil atmosphere of the office itself. I felt as though I was in such good hands. It made going to the dentist a pleasure as opposed to something I’ve always dreaded in the past. I’ll be back for my next cleaning with Kristen in the near future. Thanks for your gentle dental care! 👌🏽

I am very happy with Gentle Dental. I needed alot of work done with my teeth. I was embarrassed, cuz I took so long to see a dentist. They were very compassionate and worked with me to get the work done. They scheduled me in right away. They explained to me all the procedures that needed to be done. I highly recommend everyone to come here
