Dr. Tran is one of the best dentists we have had in a long time. She doesn’t waste your time and ensure the best treatment for you. I have a 2, 12, and 14 year that she has seen. She works exceptionally well with children and provides excellent treatments for adults as well. Gentle Dentist office is very welcoming and friendly, they work hard to ensure you have the appointment that fits your schedule to include after hour late appointments. All of the staff have up beat attitudes and create only a positive experience. I of course highly recommend this office and dentist.

Amazing friendly staff, with a TON of patience. They were amazing! Fit all four of us in right away, and allowed us to take the 2yo into our appointments first so she knew what to expect when it was her turn. And she was READY and so excited when it was her turn to have her teeth checked!

Best dental experience in many, many years! Every staff member is friendly and professional. Excellent care of my teeth from x-rays to cleaning to exam. Especially appreciate that Dr. Kumar did not try to push me to have expensive cosmetic work done. Can't say enough good things about Gentle Dental!

I saw Dr. Gilbert Ng for a new-patient exam. He was gentle and narrated what he was about to do. Once he noticed I'm a nerd and want in-depth info about everything, he explained all his findings and advice in such helpful depth! Excited to be a patient here.

Nice staff and dentists. I went in with a toothache and had the root canal right there on the spot. They offer their own discount plan which paid for itself immediately. That is great for someone like me without dental insurance. They also offer CareCredit payment plans. It looks like my family and I have found our dentist.

Questions about Insurance?

If you have dental insurance and are concerned about coverage do not hesitate to reach out to our friendly staff. Our team here at Gentle Dental will help you with any payment or insurance questions you may have and will work closely with you to help you get the most out of your dental plan.

About Payment

Gentle Dental aims to be as gentle on your wallet as our dentists are when providing treatment. Our professional staff will help you get the most from your dental insurance benefits and explain any deductibles and co-pays to you.

Payment options include cash, major credit cards, discount plans, and private financing.

The Gentle Dental Smile Plan

The Gentle Dental Smile Plan is perfect if you don’t have dental insurance and offers significant savings. The plan has no waiting period, involves no paperwork, and covers all pre-existing conditions.

You can enroll as an individual, couple or family and receive significant discounts on preventative services including exams, cleanings, fluoride treatments, and x-rays, as well as a host of other dental services. All other services including specialty care such as extractions, root canals, and orthodontics are discounted 20% from our list prices.

The Smile Plan is effective immediately and there are no claim forms to fill out and no maximums. Seniors 62 and older receive additional discounts on enrollment fees and parents can keep children on their family plan until age 26.

Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for everyone to obtain quality dental care at an affordable price.

To sign up or for questions, please call us at 800-277-1112.

You can also enroll at one of our locations.
