Thought I I would give this place one more try as they have a new doctor and dental hygienist and I’m glad I did! From the moment I walked in, the front office staff was extremely friendly and professional. The doctor was very friendly and I had the best cleaning ever done by Yasman! I’m a fan again and will definitely recommend this office to friends and family!

Scheduling an appointment was simple (via phone call w/ Veronica). Arrived and was greeted by staff. Veronica assisted me personally, explained paperwork and procedures performed during my visit. Jessica performed my X-Rays, check-up and cleaned my teeth. Jessica was gentle and efficient. If you can select someone to clean your teeth ask for Jessica. Dr. Came and explained my options for my follow up procedures. Establishment is clean and follow Covid-19 Safety Precautions (cleaning all gear and equipment). Highly recommended to all!

I needed a deep clean, which requires 2 visits. My hygienist, Zora, was excellent and both visits were pain free and no issues.

I have NEVER been to a better dentist. There is not a single thing that stands out for me to compliment them on. It was everything they did! Dr. Jeong Kim is exceptionally amazing. He explains the situation, the procedure he is going to do, and why it needs to be done. This was all said to where I was able to completely understand everything. Dr. Jeong's assistant and the X-ray technician were all part of the wonderfulness. I had such great service from these 3 individuals. They are genuinely kind, caring and most important, they are all extremely knowledgeable in their field. I do not know how to put the reason why my experience at Gentle Dental was so great into words. I do know that I will be recommending this office to everyone from here on out. Thank You again Dr. Kim. You are the BEST!!

Dr. Lehman and his staff are the reason I still come back to this dental office after I moved 45 mins away. Dr. Lehman is knowledgeable and patient, explains to me before any procedures. He likes to think in his patients' best interest. Highly recommended.

WOW, love this place. TBH I hate going to the dentist or anything related to my mouth. But this place is amazing, their staff is so nice and caring. Especially their Dental Hygienist, Vivian Le. She really knows what she is doing and made sure I was comfortable the whole time when I was in her chair. She could tell I was very nervous about being at the dentist, but she was tentative during the process and talked to me the whole time and explained everything she was doing to help keep me calm. I am coming back here every 4 months for a teeth cleaning from now on! I still hate going to the dentist, but I really enjoy coming to the Dental Hygienist Vivian Le now. :)

I came in the morning for my routinely check-up and a cleaning, and the girl at the front desk helped me immediately. After waiting a short while, I had my x-rays taken with no trouble or pain at all. For my check-up, the doctor was very nice and patient, especially with my wisdom teeth concerns. For my cleaning, however, the dental hygienist, Vivian, was incredibly gentle and thorough - I left the office satisfied with my stain-free teeth! Can't wait to come back for another cleaning; I hate visiting the dentist, but her passion for her work and the tangible satisfactory results make it all worth it.
