The staff at the Makakilo location have always been very kind and courteous towards myself and my family time and time again. Dr. Alex and his coordinator Ryehe M. have both shown extensive knowledge of their practice which assures me that I am receiving the best care and service on the island.

We’ve been patients at Gentle Dental Makakilo for the last few years and I have to say, I wish we’d started much sooner. The staff has always been tremendously friendly and professional. Everyone in the office offers the best service and care and I especially love that I’m able to have one location for all of our dental and orthodontist appointments. This is definitely important for any family that is busy like ours. Gentle Dental Makakilo is truly a family friendly dental office and I recommend them whole heartedly.🤗

Their hygienists are excellent, pleasant and keep her pain-free. I just had two fillings and one was for a seriously cracked tooth and removal of a filling and they made sure that I did not suffer any pain at all. Even the shot inside of my mouth didn’t hurt. Amazing! Great personalities and great service. I recommend them highly.

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.

Flexible Financing

We understand that you don’t always have the cash at hand, that’s why we accept most major credit cards and offer flexible financing options which can be helpful if you require more extensive work, orthodontics, or cosmetic procedures that aren’t covered by insurance. These plans can offer:

  • Low down payment and no interest1
  • No money down and no interest2
  • Extended terms up to 48 months at 14.9% promotional interest rates3

We want to make paying for dental services as easy as possible. For more information, call us toll-free at 1-800-GENTLE1 to get in touch with the Gentle Dental Office in your neighborhood.

  1. Valid photo ID and checking account, credit card or debit card required.
  2. On approved credit. For promotional purchases over $300 if paid in full within promotional period. If promotional purchase is not paid in full within promotional period, interest will be imposed from the date of purchase at 26.99% APR.
