I apologize for my previous negative review of Gentle Dental in Irvine. I was being so fearful. I have since returned and given them another try. They have been outstanding! Loc Huynh is the RDH there and he did such a great job with my deep cleaning that my gums got better and I did not need more expensive work done by a Periodontist! Thank you Loc!!! I have also returned for a cleaning every three months and the price was not bad at all! I am so grateful to Loc, he is very skilled and professional. Thank you Gentle Dental!

Dawn Ab, thank you for sharing your positive experience! We always strive to provide top quality service to every guest, and are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your experience here at Gentle Dental Irvine!
Gentle Dental Irvine replied on May 2, 2017:
{{reviewer-name}}, Thank you for your feedback and sorry we didn’t do a better job in explaining the difference between a prophy (regular cleaning) and scaling and root planning (SRP or sometimes called “deep cleaning”). SRP is needed when there is plaque or bacteria deep beneath the gums. Left untreated, this bacteria can lead to serious infection and other health issues. It would be irresponsible for the dentist to do a prophy when an SRP is needed and both the insurance company and dental licensing board could take action. Again, sorry this wasn’t explained to you effectively. We have made note of this for future patient communication. Please call us directly if you have further questions at {{location-phone}} or email us at {{location-email}}. Thank you.

After my recent visit , my opinion changed . I was prepared to go elsewhere . However to My surprise , the place was rehabbed, and appeared CLEAN, fresh and open. Familiar faces of Dental assistants ,Yessenia and Josie, Who are the best .Knowledgable and warm. My dentist was my last shot at this location , Dr. Sadiki He is wonderful ❣️ Caring, preparing for injections , to be sure I’d have no after effects . Unlike the others there . I will stay with him going forward , he is very knowledgeable , and thorough . The filling was challenging, but it’s perfect . Smooth , and no after effects as before . He’s great ❣️ I’m also relieved that in Irvine , the owners of this franchise , decided to put some money into this place and bring it up to 2019 ❗️

I do not understand some of the negative reviews. Me and my wife went in for a full check up and cleaning. The doctor was very knowledgeable. They attended us in a timely manner and the cleaning was completely free. They did recommend some things along with the cleaning that would represent a cost but there was absolutely no pressure. It was optional. The staff were very friendly and attentive. Especially Dorthy.. she was from the Huntington Beach location. We are scheduled to come back to perform some more work. Will update then.

Loc is an awesome dental hygienist and the reason why I continue to go back to Gentle Dental. I was really happy with Dr. Pham and I was disappointed to find out that she had moved on. Dr. Lester has been good so far. He is friendly and thorough.

I came in for a tooth ache and this turned out to be one of my best experience at the dental office. The staff are extremely friendly. The office manager, Grace, is very knowledgable about insurance. She was able to quickly figure out what my insurance coverage and answered all my questions. I saw Dr. Lester for the exam. He is very nice and experienced. He throughly explained what caused the pain. Thumb up for Josie, she was so gentle on the xrays and quick. Thanks Gentle Dental staff and Dr. Lester for taking the pain away.
