        I was very happy with the service here. Growing up I was terrified of the dentist until I came here. Veronica was amazing and helpful, she put all my worries at ease. She explained everything step-by-step, I was never uncomfortable bringing up questions I had. I definitely recommend coming to this dental office.

        I like how this place has very friendly staff. At first I was a little nervous but now this place made feel more at ease. I was assigned to Dr Pham and shes very knowledgeable with everything I ask of my dental concerns. Shoutout to my favorite assistant, Veronica, since shes the one who’s been helping me when I started coming. I had a couple fillings done and my cleanings. So far no complaints.

        Gentle Dental is the place to go for all your dental needs!!! Such an amazing staff and great service especially Dr. Pham & her dental assistant Martha. Before going here I never smiled or tied to hide my smile because of the stains I had on my teeth. I had crowns put in to correct this and was extremely hesitant because I feared that I wouldn’t like how they felt or turned out but now I’m happier than ever with my new smile. Big thanks to the whole staff who were so welcoming!!! Highly recommend for any work on your teeth.

        I’m a new patient at gentle dental and I’ve had several appointments already. The staff is friendly and have great customer service skills. I like that you are seen at your appointment time and don’t have to wait long once you arrive. I had my wisdom tooth pulled and was in and out within 30-40 mins. Returned yesterday for more work (fillings and deep cleaning) and doctor was great and did such a good job. She finished all the work so that I didn’t have to take time off from work.The staff call you and check how you’re doing the next day. Overall I am very with my experience and happy I am now a client of this clinic. Thank you all:)

        I was referred to Gentle Dental by my dentist for a tooth extraction. From the friendly front desk, skilled technicians and oral surgeon, all put me at ease. It was a calm & "gentle dental" experience! I'm doing well and appreciate their care and kindness. Thank you!

        Just moved to Indio and got Gentle Dental as a recommendation and can’t say enough about this great dental clinic. Everyone is courteous and helpful and most importantly PAINLESS NEEDLES!!! Dentists that really care about their patients will take longer to inject novocaine so the patient feels almost nothing. And let’s be honest. Choosing a good dentist is all about avoiding pain! I give Gentle Dental 5 Stars!
