I’ve been a patient at Gentle Dental Rancho for over two decades. Dr. Peterson and his competent and friendly staff are excellent. I always feel well-taken care of at every step of the visit. They clearly explain the issues and treatment plan with you and will patiently answer all your questions. I appreciate that the staff is amiable but also quick and efficient. I was also impressed with some new X-Ray digital technology that is now in use. Much better than the old films. I trust this office with my own dental care and my kids grew up going there. If you are looking for a new dentist, give them a try.

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.

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.
