        We love this office!! The staff is always so great and patient with my kids! I’ve never seen kids actually excited to go to the dentist 😂 Dr. Courtney is so good with kids, they feel so comfortable with the procedure and aren’t scared. They have been taking the upmost care of cleanliness during this whole pandemic to make sure their staff and patients are protected. Also I must mention how cozy and inviting the ladies at the front desk make it with their smiles and cutest decor! Thank you again gentle dental children’s for taking care of my kiddos!

        Dr. Courtney and the entire rest of the staff are absolutely AMAZING! My 4 year old unfortunately inherited my bad teeth genes and ended up needing A LOT of work done. After the laughing gas didnt relax him, Dr. Courtney didnt press any further and we made the decision to come back another time and put my little one to sleep. Yesterday was that day. Needless to say, I was a nervous wreck (I'm going to blame it on being 37 wks pregnant) but the staff was so encouraging and supportive. They continued to keep me posted on his progress the entire time and compliment how brave he was. They answered all of my questions thoroughly and so very kindly even though looking back, I think I may have sounded like a broken record. I honestly cant say enough good things about the staff here. Aside from how amazing they were yesterday, I received a text from Dr. Courtney today checking on my little one which just threw me over the moon!! Honestly, if you are in search of a pediatric dentist, Gentle Dental is absolutely the way to go! They truly care about their patients and their treatment and will do anything to make sure your child is comfortable and not traumatized by dental appointments.

        There aren't kind enough words to describe the staff here. After a bad experience in another state with my son, I was very cautious and nervous about a dentist for my daughter. We initially went to the "fancy" dentist in Corvallis and I was not impressed. I called Gentle Dental for a second opinion. I came pre-loaded with TONS of anxiety and fear, I probably sounded nuts when I called. But they were ready! I was met with kind, caring, PATIENT compassion. They were calm, reassuring, and never once pushed past my comfort level. The result: My daughter LOVES the dentist. They are sweet, gentle, funny, thorough and FAST. A few fillings and a crown later, my daughter still has no idea she received a shot in her mouth. These gals are amazing. You absolutely will not regret going here.

        If your kid is scared of the dentist or shots, this is the place to go. One shot and my son was not having it. In tears the dentist told him she was sorry her nails were long and she would trim them lol. But Instead of forcing him to keep going she stopped and respected him and we're gonna come back and put him to sleep so he doesn't have to be scared.

        I honestly can’t say enough good things about this place. Our daughter had a truly terrifying experience as a small child with a dentist office that wouldn’t allow parents in the back room even when they were high anxiety. The dentist yelled at her to be quiet even as she was crying in fear. So going to the dentist has always been something she struggled with. Courtney and her team are amazing! They spend lots of time making the kids feel comfortable and they are so patient with children! Which is the way a pediatric dentist should be. We appreciate the organization, attention to detail, and loving support from their team. We have four children and all of the kids and love to go to the dentist and see Courtney, Raquel her awesome assistant and every other lady in the office! We have even moved across the state and still make a trip back just so we can still get their amazing care and service. Don’t take your kids anywhere else!

        Gentle dental in Albany off of Pacific Blvd and 29th St. Is one of the best place to take your child if they r in pain or need something done with there teeth. The best group of ladies work there and they are so loving and caring and help u in any way possible 💗. I have been taking my kids to them since they were located in Lebanon and I would not trade them for anything else. They r always going out of there way to fit us in if needed and the ladies at the front desk McKenzie and Lori are wonderful and very sweet they do there best to squeeze u in if needed.. and then the ladies who help Dr Courtney out are so very nice and never mean to anybody who comes in there and then there is Dr Courtney and she always gets in and gets the job done no matter what it is and she is very easy with the kids. They are an amazing team. I recommend everyone to go to there office they are a great group of ladies.. ❤️❤️❤️
