My last dental experience made me really dislike going to the dentist but I stumbled upon this place by chance and found my new dentist. The ENTIRE staff is soo welcoming and warm it’s surreal. They all build a personal connection with each patient showing how much they care about your health. Plus most dentists push you into getting work done that you didn’t come for and expect you to pay soo much money upfront for something you didn’t even know you needed. Not them. Never felt pressured into getting any additional work, only what I specified in the reason for my visit and they had different payment options if I needed it. I always procrastinated on my dental health, but I think it’s safe to say, not anymore!

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.
