        To Know Us Is To Love Us

        LEARN ABOUT US

        Located at 8880 E. Foothill Blvd, Suite 5, Gentle Dental Foothill is proud to offer expert dental services for residents living in and around Rancho Cucamonga, California, including Upland, Ontario, and San Antonio Heights in San Bernardino County.

        At Gentle Dental Foothill, we believe in putting our patients first by providing friendly, convenient, and flexible dentistry options. We strive to make your trip to the dentist as gentle as possible. Using new technology and the latest techniques, our compassionate team of dentists creates a relaxing, stress-free environment where every patient feels safe and comfortable. Our Foothill dentists provide a full spectrum of services, including preventive dental treatments and restorative procedures, root canals, bridges and crowns, implants, inlays and onlays, bone augmentation and oral surgery. 

        Since many patients are concerned with the appearance of their smiles, we also offer comprehensive cosmetic dental procedures. This includes effective whitening treatments and durable veneers that look completely natural. For patients with misaligned teeth, we offer traditional orthodontics and Invisalign clear aligners.

        Whether you or your family needs cosmetic treatments or expert dental care, you can count on Gentle Dental Foothill for professional treatment. We know that many dental issues don’t happen during typical business hours. To make your life easier, our office has convenient hours including evenings and weekends. In the case of an emergency, our experienced team can take care of your emergency dental treatments. We also offer gentle pediatric dental services for babies, children and teens. 

        In addition to delivering affordable dental care for our Rancho Cucamonga friends and neighbors, we also accept the vast majority of major dental insurance plans. If you don’t have insurance, you may qualify for our Dedicated Dental Plan, which comes with major discounts for preventative care, diagnostic services and specified dental treatments. If you undergo a treatment that your insurance plan does not cover, our office can provide convenient financing options, which let you split your costs up into lower, affordable monthly payments.

        Conveniently located at the corner of Foothill Boulevard and Vineyard Avenue, Gentle Dental Foothill is your one-stop source for affordable, expert dental care in Cucamonga, California. We are situated right next to Panda Express and Jersey Mike’s Subs on Foothill Boulevard. We are here to help you protect your dental health while improving the aesthetic of your smile. Contact our office at (909) 242-8335 to schedule an examination, routine cleaning or professional treatment.

        I have been taking my kids to Gentle Dental for awhile now, everyone in the office is very friendly and professional. They have responded very well to COVID guidelines. Cassandra, in particular, is awesome! She is great with my kids, especially my younger one, who is always nervous at the dentist.

        Dr. Simonian recently made a new set of dentures for my father and they are terrific! Actually, he made his previous set as well when he worked in the Riverside office. Dr. Simonian is by far the best dentist I’ve ever had. His knowledge, experience, and chair side manner is what everyone hopes their dentist will provide. The office staff was professional and courteous. Although due to CoVid there isn’t a waiting room, there is ample area in front with a bench to sit. My experience with the Rancho Cucamonga office was pleasant and easy. I highly recommend.

        I highly recommend this place. Staff are very friendly and answered all my questions regarding insurance and out of pocket costs. Before we proceeded with any work, we went over my monthly payment plan, what my insurance covered, and what I would have to cover. They educate you about the work you will get done through some quick videos and answer all your questions with a smile. Thank you Gentle Dental for making me feel safe to come to the dentist during this time. Excited to come routinely knowing I have a great office.

        First dental office where I don’t wait 2 hours in the waiting room and then another hour inside on the chair. The doctor gets straight to the point and was not advised that we needed an endless number of work done. Overall, the staff at the desk and the dental assistants are very friendly.

        Years ago, I used to drive all the way from Orange County to Riverside County to get my teeth cleaned by Dr. Michael Simonian. Why? Because, he was literally the ONLY dentist that I could find that wasn't trying to swindle me. As far as I'm concerned, his bedside manner and technique are bar none. He's the guy you refer patients to who might be afraid to go to the dentist. He is super sweet and honest. Sadly, he left California altogether, and set up shop in Nevada for years. I was sure that we had lost him for good. Recently, my mother was looking for a dentist, and she found a certain name that sounded awfully familiar to her. Luckily, I was there when she asked me about him, and now she is a believer as well. I couldn't be happier that Dr. Simonian is back where he belongs, in California! If you are looking for a dentist, please look no further. Because, you will NOT find a better dentist anywhere. This man simply cares about doing it right, and doing it honestly. I can't tell you how many other dentists would try to pull the wool over my eyes, and I would have to go to him to get the honest to goodness truth. Dr. Simonian has saved me a lot of time, grief, and money over the years. Now, he's taking care of another generation of my family. God bless you Dr. Simonian. I hope you never retire or ever leave us again! :) Yes, my mother and father drive all the way from Orange County to Rancho Cucamonga, just to see Dr. Simonian, because he is absolutely worth it. If you have Gentle Dental, please make sure that he is your doctor! You'll be glad you did.
