I've had really traumatic experiences at the dentist's office in the past, but my most recent visit (just yesterday) changed my life. I was treated by Dr. Vu and he was so nice!! Probably the best dentist I've ever had. He would always ask if he was hurting me, where he would apply pressure, and when he would inject the anesthesia. I didn't cry even once. My only issue is that you have to call to confirm your next appointment with them which seems unnecessary and a bit antiquated but the service is exceptional nonetheless.

Very friendly staff. Offered coffee and water and had a very calming and welcoming demeanor. Very conversational with both each other and myself. Dentist lived up to the company's name too, very gentle work. Kept apologizing for parts he thought might hurt but I could barely feel a thing and I wasn't numbed in the slightest. Highly recommended.

I definitely recommend this dentist. I had a really good experience here and I normally hate going to the dentist. I hadn’t been in years and felt embarrassed for my 1st appointment but everyone was so nice and made me feel extremely comfortable. Can’t wait for my next appointment this week.

Gentle Dental has completely transformed my oral healthcare and greatly improved the aesthetics of my smile! Dr. Dillan is a talented, knowledgeable, and caring professional that always cares about my comfort and helped me with all my preventative care, saving me tons of money in future work. We work in a prioritized list and there is never pressure to buy extra services or products, unless highly recommended for my health. The whole staff is amazing and I’ve loved coming to this dentist for 3 years.

Gentle Dental" certainly describes the practice of Dr.Dilan Munaweera, Hygienist Sheryl Scott, Receptionist Tina and the entire staff at the Moana Ln office in Reno, Nevada. I was a "walk in" with a toothache a few years ago. It was closing time but Dr. Dilan took me right in, extracted my painful tooth and I've been a happy patient ever since. Most recently Dr. Dilan and staff fitted me with a partial plate consisting of 3 front teeth and 3 molars. I had my front teeth and a molar knocked out playing high school football years ago. I was never happy with the replacements until now....decades later. Dr. Dilan had me bring in a high school picture taken just before the teeth were lost. The finished partial plate has given me back my smile..... as good, if not better, than when I had my original teeth. The friendliness and the professionalism of Dr. Dilan and staff at his office has made me a patient for life !!!

Dr. Dillion is perfect, precise, and peaceful when it comes to dental work. I entrust all my denticles to Dr. D and his staff, especially the ones with a sense of humor. His entire staff is very charismatic and very convincing. Think I might start flossing after my interrogation or I might just stop by Starbucks to get myself coffee teeth prior to a visit. Who needs to floss and stop drinking sugary coffee when you have a great dentist like Dr. D.

I’ve been seeing Dr. Dillion at the Moana location for a few months. I am having quite a bit of work done. He has been very sensitive to my needs, very professional, and happy to keep me informed of the what to expect as the work proceeds. The office staff has been amazing as well, working with my multiple insurance companies to make sure my out of pocket is minimal. Thanks !!

I am 50 years old and have had a lot of dental work done in my life, but no dentist has come close to the knowledge, skill level or expertise of Dr. Dilan Munaweera. To top things off the entire office staff is super accommodating and helpful with tons of smiles, which I really love…. The assistants that work with Dr. Dilan are all top-notch. I’ve been recommending this office for years. You will not find a better dental office anywhere!
