        Excellent & professional service! I enjoy going to the dentist now because of Dr. Lee & her dental assistant. They are both personable and make me feel comfortable. The view of the ocean & Diamond Head are beautiful while in the chair. I definitely recommend Gentle Dental Makakilo!

        I had to make an emergency appointment today due to a broken tooth, and since I hadn’t been to see the dentist in over 3 yrs, I was really nervous. But the staff were wonderful and attentive. Dr. Lee was just awesome and he took the time to explain everything & all possible options. Cassie was FANTASTIC when I had to check out and explained the estimates thoroughly. I’m so glad I went today!! Highly recommend Gentle Dental 😉🦷

        Gentle Dental Makakilo is the best. Super friendly people that take care of your needs and are super gentle when helping you. The staff is all nice. Rye is always willing to help me be seen by dr. Lee or by any dr. Available to help me with my pain. I had a really bad pain in my mouth and I was able to be seen right away which I really appreciate. I love this Dentist and what they do to help me.

        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 ❤

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.

        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.
