        I LOVE GENTLE DENTAL IN WINGFIELD !! Going to the dentist is always scary and uncomfortable for me but they are amazing there. They help you feel as comfortable as can be, constantly assure me, and are super helpful. Charlene and Marsha are soooo sweet and I love going to the dentist to see them !! The dental assistant was also super sweet and the Dentist is so kind and informative.

        As an adult I have had awful dental disease and Gentle Dental in Sparks, NV has been the best and they have saved me my teeth. Doctor C, Maribel, Nirvana, Charlene (sorry if I miss-spelled anyone’s names) and the rest of the office staff have been so kind and have taken such great care of me. I give them ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

        I feel so blessed and grateful to have found Gentle Dental! Every staff member from Daniel to Larissa and EVERYONE is simply- AMAZING! The dentist is considerate and detail oriented. He didn't make me feel like a bad person or belittle me for my dental condition- just clearly and openly discussed what treatments are needed! Blessings and THANKS! See you all again soon. 😁💋🙏🏾

        Questions about Insurance?

        If you have dental insurance and are concerned about coverage do not hesitate to reach out to our friendly staff. 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.

        To sign up or for questions, please visit www.gdsmileplan.com or call us at 800-277-1112.

        You can also enroll at one of our locations.

        Flexible Financing

        We understand that you don’t always have the cash at hand, that’s why we accept most major credit cards and offer flexible financing options which can be helpful if you require more extensive work, orthodontics, or cosmetic procedures that aren’t covered by insurance. These plans can offer:

        • Extended terms up to 48 months at 14.9% promotional interest rates3
