        I’ve been going here for over 10 years and never have had a bad experience. Recently I’ve been seeing a new hygienist Jerin and she has been great. I get great tips on how to keep my gums healthy.

        Hygienist Nicole was wonderful! She has a warm and inviting personality. Deep scaling sounds cringe inducing, truthfully it was anything but. Effective and efficient, the treatment is well worth it. Your gums will thank you! The cherry on top you ask? In and out in 30 mins (:

        Nicole was AMAZING! I don’t often take the time to fill these surveys out. But Nicole who cleaned my teeth. Is Amazing! This was my 3rd visit and I’ve had her all three visits. Each time I was secretly hoping she would be doing my cleaning because she is so sweet, gentle, knowledgeable and professional! Very worthy of a little bragging. Hoping her supervisor will see this and give her an award, mention or promotion! Love her! She rocks!💯💯💯

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.
