gentle dental is true to their name. they are very kind and helped resolve my fears. At other dentists, I always felt like my previous hygenists were upset with me, and i felt embarassed and ashamed. Not at Gentle! their philosophy is that they are there to help you. Also, I love the water laser they used to clean my teeth. This technology is great. It was painless and i feel so clean now! I wish i would have found Gentle Dental before when i first moved to santa clarita. i will send my husband there, too.

First, Everyone working there was nice and attentive. It was a great atmosphere, nice music playing, clean and professional. Sonia (the dentist) was extremely nice, informative, and when she was putting the needle in (anesthesia) to fix my front tooth I did not feel it whatsoever- now I know why they call it Gentle Dental. Overall an amazing experience, definitely recommend to everyone! :) Thank you for what you ladies did for me today!

It was a fantastic dental office! As an international tourist , I was little bit nervous to visit dental office in US for the first time but Lillian welcomed me warmly at the reception and that made me feel relaxed! Paola was an amazing assistant. She explained everything perfectly so I was comfortable to have a treatment. Dr. Sonia was really kind and did a great job! I’m so glad that I chose this office! Thank you so much!

The staff at Gentle Dental are friendly and professional. They are flexible to work around a busy schedule. My family of four have been going there for two years now. I didn't give them 5 stars because there have been a couple of times when we had appts and we were either seen very late, or had to reschedule because they had emergency appointments, but they also gave me options, apologized, and scheduled another appt in a time frame that worked for me. They have also called me to see if we would like to be seen earlier, which I appreciate. Thank you, Gentle Dental for taking good care of my families teeth!

This was my first visit to this dental office and it was the best experience I've had in a while. Jay is super friendly, helpful and caring. Unlike my previous dental office, Dr Sonia was professional, friendly and she listened to my concerns. Lilliana was fantastic- she went over all the treatment options and showed me a printed form of what my insurance covered and what my options were. This office is efficient, professional and understanding and I highly recommend this team. Thank you, Dr Sonia, Jay and Lilliana and rest of the dental staff you are all wonderful.

I personally hate going to the dentist. Its uncomfortable, cold, and takes forever. I haven’t been in for a check up in three years. But the Gentle Dental staff made me feel so comfortable and had me in and out! Lillian is wonderful! She for-sure will be the reason I return! She has such a way with people! She wasn’t rushing me out the door, she wasn’t rude or pushing forms in my face, she took her time to explain treatment further and just was pleasant conversation. The assistants and Dr are great as well. Dr was very good and explanatory. Jay did my cleaning and did such a good job, didn’t hurt me and complimented my teeth which made me happy! Haha. Yay Gentle Dental! Thanks again Lillian you are amazing!

From the first phone call to my first appointment I was assured my comfort was most important. Dr. Karimian and his staff were amazing. I had a very painful tooth that took lots of work to ease but they all made sure I was okay the entire time. Best Dentist and office I've ever been to.

I came in with an emergency. I got the best dental experience I have ever had. And not one bit of pain. I have my smile back, and so much more. They never tried to talk me into work that was not needed, and worked with my insurance and set me up with a payment plan I could easily afford. I recommend Gentle Dental to anyone.
