Leveraging cutting-edge technology and today’s latest techniques, our dentists provide a full spectrum of expert services, including restorative procedures, preventive treatments, implants, root canal therapy, bridges, crowns, inlays, onlays, oral surgery, bone augmentation and pediatric dentistry.

To help our patients enhance the appearance of their smiles, we also offer diverse cosmetic dental treatments. This includes modern whitening procedures and veneers that look just like real teeth. For patients with bad bites or misaligned teeth, we offer traditional metal braces. We also offer state-of-the-art Invisalign clear aligners that straighten teeth discreetly.

To help patients schedule their dental appointments around school, work and important appointments, we have a flexible scheduling policy that includes weekends and holidays. We also offer emergency dental service so patients can get timely relief from unexpected issues that might occur outside typical business hours.

To help ensure that every Palm Springs resident has access to skilled dental care, Gentle Dental accepts most dental insurance plans. For patients without any insurance, we offer a valuable Dedicated Dental Plan, which comes with big discounts for preventative care, diagnostic services and specified dental treatments.

If you or someone in your family needs braces, Invisalign, cosmetic procedures or more extensive dental treatment, we can provide convenient financing options, which allow you to divide your costs into affordable monthly payments.
