No one likes to go to dentist I’m the same but Dr Javan changed that for me with his skills, knowledge and professionalism.my entire process was really smooth, painless and most important for me being comfortable during his work. It was my first visit but I’m taking my wife to him as well from now on

Its the dentist office... What more is there to say? Not a very fun place, but it is a very clean office and the staff is very helpful and polite. It is located on the corner of Main Street and Townsquare Ln. Next to the restaurant. I'm here to get a much needed root canal...FUN TIMES! And I drove all the way here from the IE and will be driving back to the IE on traffic. Yah! You can't choose when tooth pain hits unfortunately!

Normally I give 5 stars but this time when getting a crown I jumped from pain. Dr was drilling in 1 spot too long and even though I was very numb, I had a very sharp pain. Now with my temporary crown, I am having pain in that tooth. The day after I left the office, I had to take extra strength Tylenol a couple times. I have several crowns and this has never happened before.

I love Gentle Dental. I went to them for all my dental needs for the two and a half years that I lived in Huntington Beach. All the staff are friendly and helpful, and I would recommend them to everyone! I just moved, and I am sad that I have to find a new dentist!
