        My family and I have been going to Gental Dental Waianae since I was in Elementary and I’m now 32. It’s always such a pleasant visit and the dental work is awesome, quick and painless. The staff is ALWAYS so friendly and accommodating and they treat you like family, which was love! From the reception desk to the assistants and doctors/hygienists and all the way to the billing desk, SUPERB A+++ service! HIGHLY recommend and my family and I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else :)

        Just moved here 3 months ago, so I had a filling break out, so I needed to find a dentist and Gentle Dental was close to my home. The ladies were absolutely great, even when I had to stop the x-rays numerous times because I'm really gaggy, she was so patient with me!! My dentist was good but he hasn't worked on my mouth yet!!! Lol. Overall my first impression of Gentle Dental was exceptional!!!

The dental tech Imani continued to pleasant experience as the dentist offered a positive outlook with a "first things first" perspective.

        My four front teeth were separating. Dentist David Zant used a technique that fixed the space to improve my smile 100%. I am no longer self-conscious. And I am smiling constantly! Thank you Dr. Zant for your professionalism!

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.

        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.
