I have been to this office since 2006. It has been almost 14 years now, nothing but gratitude. In the 14 years, Rey has been taking care my wife and me on cleaning. He is simply excellent on what he is doing, gentle and professional. In the last 14 years, both my wife and I had quite a few crowns and many filings done by Dr. Ma. He was super professional. I can not ask for a better doctor other than Dr. Ma. Every time I call the office, I always got a joyful and gentle greeting from Virginia, that always made my day. Above all, office manager Sonja is the nicest and kindest person I have ever met in my life, gentle voice, soft tone. In front of her, there is nothing that cannot melt away without filling your heart with joy and happiness. In my opinion, you can not go wrong with this office. and I hope our relationship with this office can continue for many years to come.

Best dental office around! The staff, doctors as well as managers are wonderful! Dr. Ma did a filling on a front tooth for me a few days ago. Very gentle and highly skilled. Looks beautiful and you can't tell that I have a filling on that tooth, it looks so natural and perfect. Thank you! 5 Stars given!

I have been going to this group for over 20 years. My whole family goes here. I am always informed of what I need done and what my cost will be. Procedures are always comfortable. I have had filings, root canal, and crowns. Office staff is very friendly and helpful. I was a patient of Dr Ralston and now Dr. Ma. Strongly recommend.

The entire Gentle Dental team are fantastic. They extend the perfect balance of professionalism and personal connection. Ray does an excellent job with my dental hygiene, and he always takes the time to listen and provide commensurate guidance. Dr. Ma is a wonderful dentist and has done a great job with my dental procedures and overall preventative care. He is meticulous in his work and very thorough. I also want to commend Sally for her gentleness. Thank you all!
