Excellent service through and through! The staff at the front desk was helpful and smiley, the x-ray technician was incredibly kind and thorough — she explained everything and also helped me get my appointments set up quickly and easily, Dr. Elias helped me understand my specific needs, and my dental hygienist gave me the best teeth cleaning I’ve ever had! I’m not usually one to leave reviews, but the staff at Gentle Dental were excellent and deserve 5/5 stars.

Very pleased with my first visit. Staff was courteous and extremely knowledgeable about my insurance benefits. The exam went well and the doctor explained in detail the problem I was having and treatment for the condition. Short wait time. I plan to return.

Happy and friendly staff. Thorough examinations and explanations of procedures. Also, very helpful people in the front of the house. They explain the charges and answer insurance questions and concerns with ease. They send multiple appointment reminders as well, which I appreciate! I haven't had any issues at all like I read in other reviews. I've been seen for regular cleanings, deep cleanings as well as multiple fillings done by different dentists at their office. Ill definitely keep coming back and recommending this office to everyone I know!

After a 3 1/2 hour drive from my home to Petaluma I arrived a bit early. I was given the paperwork to fill out. After that we had a bit of a wait (because we were early). Once I was in the room, the entire staff were extremely caring and let me know exactly what was going to happen. The extraction was totally painless. It took about 1/2 an hour from start to finish. When I was leaving the receptionist had gone out earlier, during her lunch break, and bought me a small Birthday cake (since it was my B'day) and actually sang Happy Birthday !!! I have NEVER met a more friendly, informed and caring staff from the front desk to the surgeon. HIGHLY recommend this office...Thanks
