Gentle Dental Tenaya is a great office with amazing staff! Dr. Connoly is a really good dentist who explains everything and makes sure you understand what needs to be done. The ladies at the reception desk are extremely friendly and professional. They are welcoming and they care about the patients and try to work with your schedule and fit you in during an emergency! Alancy is the best she always makes my day when I call to schedule, strongly recommend!

The people who work at this little unassuming, store front mall of a dental office are some of the most approachable, sincere, knowledgeable and caring individuals I've ever met in one location. Granted, I haven't stepped foot into a dental office in over 20 years so I can't compare the people here to staff at other offices. However, if you haven't stepped foot into a dental office in over 20 years, I strongly suggest seeing the people here!

Stopped in here to check if I had any cavities. Minimal wait time and the Dr came out as soon as my x Rays finished. Lucky for me I had no issues and only had to pay for the X-ray. One of the best dental offices I have visited.

I just started coming to Gentle Dental this summer because my old dentist stopped taking my insurance. I googled a doctor that takes my insurance and Dr. Connolly popped up so I scheduled an appointment right away. I was unsure at first because my friend had told me that at Gentle Dental (different locations), they are not very "gentle". But I wanted to give it a try since I needed to get a cleaning done soon. I scheduled my cleaning appointment and check up and the girl on the phone was really nice. They would also call you and text you reminders regarding your appointments. When I got to the office, Alancy, the receptionist greeted me right away, she was very cheerful so it actually made my morning (since it was really early for me, I was still half asleep). I just had to fill out some paperwork and then I was called to the back right away. I did not have to wait long compared to my past dental offices. I had my check up first with Dr. Connolly, and at first I felt unease because he said I needed to get some work done on my teeth and he asked me if my previous dentist ever told me. Of course, I felt embarrassed because my previous dentist did not inform me or he did not get the job done. After that I was introduced to Terri/Maria the hygienist. She was so cheerful like Alancy, so I started feeling comfortable again. She noticed I was freezing so she offered me a blanket while she cleaned my teeth. I had a few questions regarding mouth hygiene and she answered them with great examples for me to understand. She kept trying to elaborate further until I no longer had a confused face. A few days later, I had to come back for some fillings. They were on point on calling for reminder. For my first visit I was "ehh" about Dr. Connolly because I didn't really get to talk to him besides him telling me what I'm supposed to do. But when I came back for my filling, (again I checked in and got called right away and Alancy greeting me again cheerfully and was actually trying to talk to me unlike other receptionist who would just check you in and have you sit and wait) I got to know Dr. Connolly better, he was explaining the whats and the whys and also the hows while showing me my x-rays. He worked on me right away and I was outta there within 30 minutes. To me that was the fastest filling I've ever had in my life! I had no waitings that I had to do! Also, his assistants were always on point, always checking up on me and they were super nice! (I've only met snobby once before Gentle Dental). I was able to get comfortable and ask Dr. Connolly questions and something that I wanted done with some of my teeth. Instead of saying yes or no, he actually explained what can happen but also provided a solution to prevent it from happening. He was very informative and was so patient with me. And i really like how my teeth turned out, thanks to him! Maria/Terri was the same. When I came back for my polish, she was bubbly as usual and was giving me more information. Overall, I was very pleased about this Gentle Dental location (can't speak for the other locations), everyone was so friendly from the receptionist, to the hygienist, to the assistants and the doctor. Hopefully, their friendliness and professionalism continue because now I feel like I had found a dental place I can come to with no hesitation! :)

Was never a big fan of dentists and have neglected my teeth for a long time so was skeptical about going to another dentist's office, but from my 1st visit here at Gentle Dental the staff has been incredible! From dental x-rays , cleanings and impressions , everyone has treated me with the utmost respect and professionalism. Great bunch of people! Thank you for all you have done for me and my smile!

PROFESSIONALISM AT IT’S FINEST - I have been going to Gentle Dental (Lake Mead Office) for about ten-years; so, there must be a reason why I keep returning. You don’t stay with a business if you receive poor service, now would you? I am always greeted warmly by everyone even if I may not have any services performed by that person. This high-quality service can only be obtained if you work in an environment where everyone feels relaxed. They all make you feel at ease. So, if you are afraid of going to the dentist, I would suggest you visit this office first before choosing any other. Doctor Connelly has performed many procedures on my teeth and each time I had minimal pain even though I suffer from Fibromyalgia, a condition that makes my teeth very sensitive. I don’t even feel any pain when he injects me with the nova cane. A little pinch, that’s it. My latest visits were on 05/01/19 and 05/10/19. I entered the office each time and was greeted pleasantly by Shawna (office mgr.) and Alancy (front desk asst.), they complement each other well; both are willing to help you with whatever your needs are. On each visit I always ask the if I could have support for my chronic lower back pain and Karen (dental assistant) or Alize or Terri (dental hygienists) are more than willing to supply me with additional support. I’m an inquisitive type of person always wanting to know what procedure is being performed and what preventive measures I can do to preserve my gums and teeth. Dr. Connelly and his assistants: Teri, Karen and Alize always answer my questions and concerns. The following is one of many examples how they all treat their patients. Terri, the dental hygienist, was so kind to take photos of my gums with her smartphone to show how I’m flossing incorrectly by cutting my gums and Shawna (office mgr.) emailed them to me. This helps to remind me that I’m flossing too hard and cutting up my gums. Both went out of their way to do this for me. Take it from a sixty-one-year-old man. Who would ever think that going to the dentist could me a pleasant experience? Finally, I want to wish Alize (dental assistant) all the best in her new career with the US Air Force.
