My son is 10 yrs old and extremely scared of going to visit the dentist office. Gentle Dental was very accommodating to our needs and even with all precautions in place due to covid-19 they provided my terrified child a gentle 5 star experience. Our future dental visits will be a lot less doom and gloom....Thank you to all the amazing Gentle Dental Staff and special thank you to Genefer and Cheryl ❤

I've had extensive work done here, and every single staff member is amazing. We're a military family, and we've moved around a lot throughout the years. This place by far, is the best dentist office I've ever been too. I highly recommend. I'm moving in a few months and everyone will be missed.

Gentle Dental in Makakilo has a wonderful and bright atmosphere. The staff are very friendly, welcoming and informative to everyone. They informed me in an understandable way on how I’m getting the best results for my teeth with the help of my insurance. My Hygienist made me understand that brushing my gums is important and his coordinator Ryehe has both shown an astonishing amount of knowledge to make sure that I know this is the place to be go to for my teeth to be healthy for a clean and white smile. Highly recommended.

The staff always makes appointments so much more enjoyable! Always super friendly and helpful. Plus, if you're lucky you can get the chair with the view of Diamond Head. You would be hard pressed to find another dental office with that view.

Gentle Dental Makakilo has a open and bright atmosphere that really puts me at ease. The staff are kind and welcoming. They are a smaller office which I love because it makes it feel very homey like everyone knows everyone. The Doctors all have been very helpful, always letting me know what they’re doing before doing it. Making sure I understand everything and what to do next.

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.🤗

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.
