To Know Us Is To Love Us

LEARN ABOUT US

Conveniently located at 2708 Santiam Hwy SE, Gentle Dental Albany is proud to serve patients in and around Albany, Oregon, including Draperville, Millersburg, and Riverside.

At Gentle Dental Albany, we pride ourselves on building relationships for life with our patients by providing a great patient experience, service excellence, and education to help maintain good oral health and overall well-being. Our dentists, assistants, hygienists and surgeons work hard to create a welcoming environment and provide skilled dental care in a relaxing, pressure-free setting.

Using the latest treatments and technology, our skilled team offers a complete spectrum of services, including preventive and restorative procedures, crowns and bridges, root canal therapy, inlays and onlays, veneers, teeth whitening treatments and orthodontics. We also offer implants, bone augmentation and oral surgery, along with gentle, compassionate pediatric dentistry for young patients who sometimes feel anxious about visiting the dentist. 

To ensure your dental health, our dental team will work closely with you to identify troublesome dental issues, target effective solutions, and explain the methods and need for specific procedures. Since we understand our patients have busy lives, we also offer flexible appointments on weekends and holidays. There’s no need to miss work, school or important occasions. Simply talk to our staff and schedule your dental work at a time that fits within your unique schedule. 

To help you maximize affordability, our office also accepts nearly every type of dental insurance plan and offers flexible financing options for patients who need more extensive dental treatments or procedures, which may be excluded from insurance coverage. If you and your family do not have insurance, you can take advantage of our Gentle Dental Smile Plan, which reduces the cost of many procedures by 20 percent or more. 

Schedule a consultation, cleaning or treatment with our friendly dental team and get a healthy smile you can be proud of. Our office is located at the southeast corner of Southeast Geary Street and Santiam Road Southeast, right next to Petco. Our location is also entirely wheelchair-accessible and we are equipped to serve patients with special needs.

Dr Winn is a amazing dentist! He turned a nightmare from a previous experience into a dream experience. He is so Very thorough and let me know ever step and why he made his decisions. He presented it to me so I could understand what he meant. Even if it I had to make another visit he wanted the best care for me. He asks over and over if im ok while he is working on me, even when he says just a pinch. He really cares about his patients. I’m so excited to have him as my new dentist. Gentle Dental are very lucky to have him. Big shout out to Christy and Sue they are wonderful assistants they make visits there fun. ( as fun as a dentist visit can be ). The front desk is always friendly and caring and will do what they have to to get you in and get you taken care of.

My whole family (3 of us) were all able to be seen on the same day. My son (3 years old) loved his visit and cant wait for the next one. They are very understanding and considerate. They explain everything to you, and are not afraid to point out what they are worried or concerned about. I made all our future appointments with them for my family and myself. I love the team and am thankful that they are so professional and kind. I have had some horrible experiences with dentists and hygienists in the past so I was fearful of the appointment, but I am thankful that this visit was so wonderful and a great experience especially for my 3 year old. I would highly recommend this office.

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.

  • Low down payment and no interest1

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

We want to make paying for dental services as easy as possible. For more information, call us toll-free at 1-800-GENTLE1 to get in touch with the Gentle Dental Office in your neighborhood.

  1. Valid photo ID and checking account, credit card or debit card required.
  2. On approved credit. For promotional purchases over $300 if paid in full within promotional period. If promotional purchase is not paid in full within promotional period, interest will be imposed from the date of purchase at 26.99% APR.
