Our family was on vacation and my son was having a lot of pain, and they were able to get us in on short notice. Our visit was quick and he was very comfortable while his tooth was extracted. We would be regulars if we lived here. Thank you for great service!!

Very nice place with super nice people, but check your own insurance to verify procedures are covered or you might get a surprise.

My visit today for cleaning will be the second time the dentist has physical hurt me. The first time while using the vibrating pick some how the Dentist touched in a way the the sound was so intense that it hurt not my mouth but made me wince in pain because it hurt my ear. This visit was a cleaning and 7hrs later I feel the need to rince with peroxide so the my tore up sore gums don't get infected. I was seen 20 min late and felt like the Dentist was rushing. The Dentist ask how my teeth were doing and I replied that I felt like something was always stuck in my teeth and was never asked for details of that complaint. Second Strike Gentle Dental.

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.
