I had the best experience at Gentle Dental I went to a different dentist they wanted to charge me so much money he didn’t mention anything that the Gentle Dental did for me. I’ve been waiting so long to get partials because I’m missing teeth in the upper and lower area of my mouth they got me in right away they made it very affordable I was able to payments. The staff was awesome they kept me calm when I had a tooth pulled. They were very very experienced. The other dentist wanted thousands and thousands of dollars to do nothing but a root canal . I just can’t say enough they were awesome in every way the receptionist were wonderful and caring. I recommend Gentle Dental to anyone and everyone. Thank you so much Gentle Dental and Chula Vista you’re making my dreams come true . Sincerely Lisa Farnham

I'm very critical of the way I am treated at businesses. It's not just about being good at what you do but also the experience. To me, making great efforts to correct even the smallest mistake and taking ownership of the experience put this dentistry ahead in my books. One difficult experience is not enough to judge an entire business, everyone has bad days. The staff here aimed to correct small issues that happened and owned up, turning me into a fan. They very much seemed to care. Five stars until proven otherwise
