I had a WONDERFUL experience at this dental care. The way everyone took care of my teeth I felt like royalty because of how nice and friendly everyone was. This is a number one concern for me (friendliness and care, not just a random number of patients like I have had in the past) for me to be able to trust someone with my teeth pain/ needs. I was impressed how well the team is at this office works together. The doctor is a sweet lady with a gentle voice and beautiful culture. This is such a contrast to what I ve had before I came here ( with abrasive aggressive male dentists seeing you as a walking wallet). I am now not affraid to go again to a dentist office. Fiy I had several very deep cavities and they were all well taken care of. They also educate you on how to take better care of your teeth like using that Phillips electric took brush can make the biggest difference in the World. Bless you all ( the team) for the care I wont ever forget your hard work. And can I also mention the vibe is nice. Good every with diversity in cultures of different countries, I thought that was one of the coolest parts.

Had a great experience with Gentle Dental in Vista! Every staff member I worked with was so friendly and helpful. Prices were very reasonable and Dr. Rivera was amazing. She worked quickly, carefully and was always concerned with how I was feeling. They were patient with my fears as well and helped to make me feel comfortable at all times! I would highly recommend this office to anyone and am so satisfied with my work that was done there.

Love this place! They are all so friendly and do a really great job at actually being gentle when working on my teeth (so the name gentle dental is actually appropriate lol.) I'm able to easily get appointments when needed and everything is always thoroughly explained to me. I went through a few dental offices that I didn't like before finding this one and I'm so happy I finally did!

I thought all hope was lost for smiling confidently, until I went into this office. Dr. Ofelia Rivera is amazing and created a workable plan to fix my teeth. I am so very happy with the results and I was supported every step of the way by the amazing staff. All the way from the front desk and scheduling appointments to to back staff, taking care of my every need. I highly encourage you to visit this office and change your mind about what it means to go to the dentist!!

After a bad experience with another dental service, I selected Gentle Dental Vista, based on some favorable reviews. I had a ton of questions about my dental situation and got them answered at Gentle. In addition, I got two crowns and some other work done for a reasonable price. My only reservation is Gentle doesn't have in-office CAD/CAM equipment.

Very pleased. I hate to say that but from now on I will favor a lady dentist. Her dental hygienist is also very nice. The best cleaning I ever had. Please Note: I have changed my mind after my above review of a few months ago. I went for a deep cleaning for 4 quadrants. I did not want to have laser, but the dentist came back, and would not let go until I agreed to have laser treatment costing $200. At the time of the treatment there were pockets but not higher than 5. When I went back the dentist checked my teeth and read to her assistant that most my teeth were now "3" pocket level, but she also read "5" for 2 of my tooth lower back teeth. The doctor then casually said that the treatment was successful because most of my teeth now were "3" pocket level. Never mind my 2 back tooth? I hate to be forced to spend money when people cannot stand by their work. Also, I brought my Sonicare toothbrush back because it was defective. I was told that I would get a refund in 6 weeks, but where is the receipt that I gave the toothbrush back? When I bought the toothbrush, I was told the toothbrush could be used for 2 people as it had two heads, but that toothbrush is for one person and the second head is a spare in case the first one breaks. Not to be switched everyday for 2 people as the tool pin that holds the brush, starts getting uneven. When I ask for quotes, etc, etc. You will get half way job. I thought Dr. Rivera is good, and I still think she is, but this office is after your money and not exactly your well being, they are too inefficient to do a through job. I paid "cash" last time and the lady in the front refused to give me a receipt, just because the amount owed was listed on my bill, she said it was written in the bill and there was no point writing "paid". After my insistence, she finally wrote "paid" and initialed. She then was laughing away with the people at the from. I think this office is not doing well because of management - particularly the people who work at the front desk - including the estimator.
