        I have been going to Dr Gulati for a few years now and just love her gentle touch and caring nature. I was able to get over the fear of dentists because of her. Her staff is also really good and professional.

        I’m writing another review for Gentle Dental, Receptionist Jocelyn is super nice & attentive, Brenda from Ortho was interested in my prior visit and wanted to make sure my treatment plan was on track! Orthodontist Dr. Jumani is awesome! Very professional, knows her craft and just awesome! She makes sure my Invisalign treatment is on point. Susanna, treatment coordinator always says hello and makes sure everything is going well for me! These ladies have treated me so well for many years and I recommend them! Thank you GD team!

        Dr. Azarinfar did an amazing job on the three crowns I had done. While it was quite an intense process, Dr. Azarinfar was sensitive to my pain level and feelings. I will definitely go back.

        I had a very good experience with them. Dr. Azarinfar was very kind, precissed, and cautious when working on my bridge and crown. He told me about risks and consequences of ignoring my real dental problems. The rest of the staff was so friendly and treated me with respect. They've given me a safety feeling while being there.

        This has got to be the best dental service in the bay area I'm so glad I chose Gentle Dental of Fremont. If they could make by 4-year old feel great with shots to the gums and then eventual cavity filling and cap, I don't see why this place is not worth it.
