From my first phone call the staff were very friendly and compassionate. They put me at ease, I do not like going to the dentist. The dental assistant that took my xray was very gentle, I came in with an infected tooth, and I a gagger. She was so patient and caring. I believe her name was Jeannie. I then met Dr. Pham, she was exceptionally gentle and explained everything everything to me .Then I met with Matt the financial person, who answered all my questions. I highly recommend Gentle Dental. Everyone in the Indio office were courteous and professional. if dentists frighten you or you had a bad experience, gentle dental is the place to go. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

So this past year 2019 was my first time to the dentist in a very long time because I didn’t have dental insurance. Just like everyone else I’m not a big fan of the dentist but my teeth needed the work so I gave Gentle Dental a try. Honestly Dr. Pham and the front desk girls especially Vero made me feel really comfortable to keep going back and get my teeth worked on. Always made me feel special and important always had a good sense of humor and just an awesome place overall. So thank you Gentle Dental for the awesome experience and you guys will definitely keep seeing me there and I will recommend all my friends and family with you guys Thank you
