To Know Us Is To Love Us

LEARN ABOUT US

With a perfect location at 3016 W. Charleston Blvd., Suite. 145, Gentle Dental offers skilled family dentistry for our friends and neighbors in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Prioritizing patient well-being above all else, our office strives to create a relaxing, stress-free environment. Using cutting-edge technology and the latest techniques, our dentists provide a full spectrum of services, including preventive dental treatments and restorative procedures, root canals, bridges and crowns, implants, inlays and onlays, bone augmentation and oral surgery.

Because we know that many of our patients want to enhance the appearance of their smiles, we also offer effective cosmetic dental procedures. This includes modern whitening treatments and durable, natural-looking veneers. For patients with misaligned teeth, we offer traditional metal braces and state-of-the-art Invisalign clear aligners.

To help ensure that all Las Vegas residents have access to our expert dental services, Gentle Dental Charleston accepts most major dental insurance plans. If you don’t have insurance, ask about our Dedicated Dental Plan, which provides major discounts for preventative care, diagnostic services and specified dental treatments.

If you or a family member needs braces, Invisalign, veneers or a more extensive dental care, we can provide convenient financing options, so you can split up your costs into affordable monthly payments. Whether you need cosmetic treatments or skilled dental care, you can count on Gentle Dental for affordable treatment, whatever your dental issue, whatever your budget.

Our flexible scheduling policy and late evening hours on Mondays allow patients to schedule their dental appointments around school, work and important appointments. We also offer emergency dental service for unexpected issues that occur outside typical business hours.

Conveniently located in the shopping center at the northeast corner of West Charleston Boulevard and Campbell Drive, Gentle Dental is ideally positioned to provide your family with knowledgeable dental care. Stop by for a cleaning or exam and get quality dental care at a price your can afford.

Dr Sheikh, Gordon and all the staff are Fantastic. I have been going to see Dr. Sheikh a few yrs now and won’t go anywhere else . I just started again with new treatments because of COVID.. I ended up having to have a lot of work done AGAIN. Unfortunately I had a hard time getting in to see Dr. Sheikh, but finally I am now able to see him. I love the staff and Dr. Sheikh. They are the BEST!! I won’t go anywhere else. Doc makes u feel comfortable and explains what the problems are and how to proceed. Much Aloha to my dental family 😎😎 Kehaulani C.

My family has been coming to Gentle Dental for years. We are picky about our choice of doctors. If you are looking for a dentist that is upfront and very honest with you - Dr. Sheik is your Man!!!! Always, Always wants what is best for the patient and is very conservative with anything to do with teeth extracting. He is always about - How can I improve YOUR dental situation and he always does a professional job!!!!! (Especially with crowns) The dental assistant Caprice is AMAZING!!! Always treats you like FAMILY! She too always works with a professional demeanor. She gives a great example of work ethic. Front desk too will always work with you and are very helpful!

I tried 2 other general dentists and one endodontis before finding this fantastic, comprehensive practice. Don't waste your time, choose Gentle Dental first!
