        We know it can be difficult to find the time for appointments, so we offer convenient evening hours on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. To make sure your dentistry needs are met, we accept most dental insurance plans and offer several options for those without insurance, such as payment plans and a Dedicated Dental Plan, which can lower the cost of a variety of procedures by 20 percent or more.

         

        Our office provides a wide range of affordable general family dentistry, including exams, cleanings, checkups, braces, root canals, crowns, bridges, implants, and dentures. You’ll find our dental facility to be a comforting environment where our compassionate and communicative team will ensure you have a stress-free experience. Every member of our staff is dedicated to communication and respectful treatment of every client.

         

        Give our friendly team a call today at 951-335-0443 so we can discuss your dentistry needs. We’re here to take care of you quickly, affordably, and on a schedule that works for you. We’ll gladly answer any questions you have about our specials, dental procedures, financing, and more.

        Great office!!! I'm so happy I finally found such a wonderful office. The front desk staff makes you feel right at home as soon as.you walk in the door. The team was very professional and explained very well everything going on. Everyone was gentle and kind to me. One of my best experiences overall.

        Hello, First and foremost I’d like to say, I have been a part of the Gentle Dental Norco family for almost 3-4 years. I have received outstanding care through my journey of braces and have been blessed to have met the amazing people who go above and beyond to ensure the best and most comfortable visits. Thankful to the two Ortho doctors who worked on my perfect smile through the 3-4 years. Although my ortho experience was outstanding, I had a recent complication during a dentist appt. I was shocked to find out there was a new dentist to throw things a little off the edge, the new dentist was not gentle at all. I felt as if she was very rude and very firmly stabbed the inside of my mouth with one of her tools and calmly apologized after as if it was normal. I felt uncomfortable and had to ask the dental assistant what was going on and she was just as surprised at the new doctor. I feel as if the new appointment of this dentist has brought an awkward energy in the dentistry along with it. I had a weird experience and definitely did not move forward with my procedure with the dentist that day. Although, the rest of the experience at the dentist was amazing! My hygienist is AMAZING, the staff is AMAZING, the dental assistant AMAZING, the ortho side AMAZING! I love my teeth. And I love this place! I hope everything falls back into place soon because I’d love to contiue to consider this place as my primary dentistry!

        This has been my team for the past 10 years after moving here to Norco. Finding new dental and medical is scary, but my family's experience has been anything but! Myra, Alex, Noe are all great people, friendly, personable, and like family. Procedures and payments are always explained in detail and unlike others I've been to, definitely Gentle!

        Since the moment I called Alex has been nothing short of AMAZING! Coming in for the first time both Alex and Noe made my experience here so much fun, their attitudes are exactly what great customer service is about. Noe has been able to accommodate my appointments with my work schedule which can be tricky but none the less, I’m glad I switched dentists. Hope they both continue to be here as long as I’m a patient.

        Quiere compartirles mi experiencia con gentle dental. Para empezar es muy fácil llamar y hacer una cita con ellos. Cuando contesta son muy amables y están dispuesto en ayudarte. Yo tengo un trabajo donde me cambian mis horarios y ellos me ayudaron hacer una cita en mi tiempo disponible. Cuando llegue el día de la cita, sus oficinas están muy limpias y tienen personal que son amables y lo más importante que hablan mi idioma. El proceso de registrarse fue fácil y rápido. No tuve espera y me atendieron rápido. Una vez adentro, el dentista llego me reviso y me dijo que ocupada hacerme. Una vez que les dije que si no se tardaron mucho en hacer el procedimiento. Fueron muy considerados con el trabajo y no me lastimo nada cuando estaban trabajando en mi dentadura. La experiencia en total fue excelente y por eso les recomiendo que vayan a gentle dental para sus necesidades dentales.

        Awesome experience! Dr Ha was very informative. Very friendly staff. Alexis helped me understand how my insurance works which is always so confusing for me. He was able to get me in with the hygienist right away! I was shocked since covid has made things so difficult nowadays this really helped me save time and trips. Shelley was so gentle and patient with me. Showed me where I gotta work a little harder at home but I left feeling amazing. Thank you guys!!!

        Came in to Gentle Dental for my check up and cleaning. They were very honest and gentle. Going to the dentist normally is an anxious experience but everyone in this office really put me at ease! Especially the RDH who deep cleaned my teeth, Shelley! Ask for her when you go!
