        This is one of the best dental offices I have been to! Front desk ladies are very nice and the back office staff is very nice. Dr. Valderama is awesome! She explains thing's fully, and never rushes you.

        I had my first experience with Gentle Dental and I was very pleased. It started with the front desk Office Assistants Theresa and Christian who were professional, kind and acknowledged me and other patients as soon as we walked through the door. I went in to meet Dr. Clarinda's Assistant who cared about my wellbeing by making sure I was comfortable. Dr. Clarinda is an exceptional Dentist who explained everything to me in detail making sure to refer me to the proper Dr's. Just when I thought the visit could not get any better Dr Clarinda went to the Orthodontist, Dr. Moreno who came in and thoroughly assessed my situation without an appointment and gave me good advice regarding clenching. I immediately made my next appointment with him in which there was an opening the next hour. Dr.Moreno's Assistant was quick and professional. If you are looking for the best dental office that serves all your dental needs chose Gentle Dental in Brentwood.

        Dr. Valderama and the staff at Gentle Dental are AMAZING. They were friendly, welcoming, accommodating and attentive to me from the moment I first walked in their office. I usually suffer from extreme anxiety when going to the dentist and they have always gone above and beyond to keep me calm and talk me through every procedure I’ve had done there. They always make time to fit me into their schedule when I have a last minute dental issue. They are also extremely clean and sanitize everything regularly and have a very well maintained office. I would highly recommend this office to anyone looking for quality dental care.

        I had a wonderful experience. From first entering the building the receptionist was kind and helpful. Then onto the dental chair the dentist and RDA were gentle, kind and not in a rush to get me out. I only wish they could do the root canal I need. I will definitely be back. Thank you ladies!

        I’m a first time user and happy of my choice. I made an appointment just to have my teeth cleaned but they needed to perform an exam first. This meant two appointments need to be made. I went to my appointment for the exam but had to wait Almost an hour because a family of four came in right before me that had the same appointment time. Rather than have me come back to my second cleaning appointment they cleaned me on the spot. Staff was very professional yet lighthearted which I admire.

        I'm someone who is petrified of the dentist. Just coming for xrays was a test of strength, especially because this was my first visit, but for the first time I finally feel comfortable with a dentist. This is something I've waited a long time for. The doctor actually consulted Me regarding what I wanted done with my teeth. All prior dentists had never given me a choice in care. She's the first! I am so happy to have found Gentle Dental and look forward to actually finishing the work I so desperately need. The staff are fantastic, friendly and welcoming. If only I had discovered them sooner I'd already have my perfect smile back already!

        What an amazing team in this dental office. From discussing coverage and costs to getting an actual appointment, Kristen was so helpful. I got in quickly as an appointment just happened to be available. I saw their oral surgeon Dr. Deyhim. She was literally so gentle. It was an easy and painless extraction of a molar. If an oral surgeon is needed, I highly recommend Dr. Deyhim and the whole team at Gentle Dental.
