        The lobby is too small and front desk issues are abundant. But they did good work at the end of the day. I recently confirmed my appointment through text message and it said "confirmed" when I clicked the link but they still called my phone to confirm. I'm glad I called them back because when I went in for my appointment 2 customers were turned away because they didnt call back and confirm so dont trust the text system. You will have to physically call them and confirm or your appointment will be given away. It's not a great system.

        Just can't get through to them on phone. Called twice today. No answer and no answering machine to leave message. I let it ring over 20 times, nothing. Otherwise I have no problem with them or their work. Finally got through, I do like this place. They have been very helpful and the pricing is more affordable then most. I would recommend them.

        Great dental work is what I hoped for and I received a lot more than that. Brandi and Edith at the front desk are kind, flexible and extremely helpful. Thank you ladies for all the work you do, I imagine it is more difficult than people give you credit for. Janice and Dr. Montgomery were incredibly patient, knowledgable and skilled. I am extremely appreciative of the work you all do. Thank you and I will definitely be getting my dental work here in the future.

        Re: Update Below is my original review and 2 years later I stand by it. I was supposed to get a root canal two years ago and just haven’t had any way to afford it so my tooth basically fell apart and really started to hurt. I went to urgent care on a Thursday night and called them Friday morning. They saw me same day and said the tooth needed to go and basically numbed me and pulled it. I didn’t have to jump any hoops, reschedule, get a cleaning. They immediately addressed my issue and though I have never had to have a tooth pulled it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. They did a great job the pain was minimal and it was great to just have it dealt with and be done. I would recommend them highly! I was very numbed and I appreciate that fact they made sure it was super comfortable and gave me time to get my pain pills and not suffer.I feel way better today and it’s been like 24 hrs. Original: Awesome staff! Everyone is very nice and understanding. My dentist seemed really knowledgeable and gave me a great treatment plan.

        I have had nothing but an AMAZING experience here!!! I’m an ex drug addict and I had to have all my teeth pulled. It was a process but Dr. Hallie McNaughton was amazing and helped me through all of it..she actually cared about me and my situation and she showed that! Her compassion for others and her determination to make sure her patients are satisfied exceeds the stars I can rate on this page. The girls up front; they are so caring and friendly as well. I now take my children here and I have recommended this place to everyone on my Facebook! This is the place to go!!!

        Gentle Dental is amazing! I have been treated well. The front office staff person is courteous, beautiful, & professional. Everyone I've met on the Dental team is fantastic! Their knowledge about financial limitations and what they could do to try and save my smile is FAR more than what I had expected or hoped for! I had to have a tooth pulled and the Doctor was in and out, literally almost no pain during anesthetics, didn't rip my jaw around getting the tooth out and in 10 minutes ... I was done. That was amazing! I had been up all night worrying, but these folks took care of me. From my experiences thus far, I would give a 5 out of 5 EASILY to Gentle Dental and I am NOT one to give good reviews (and rarely give reviews at all). Highly recommend them. Don't understand why people are complaining about phone contact. Sure, I've had to dial a couple times, sometimes it takes two calls. Just be patient!

        I had a great experience with Dr. Matthews. She knows her stuff! Don't understand the negative reviews. I found the staff to be very friendly and accommodating. Front desk answered the phones when I called a few times thereafter. Needed medication for a bad tooth and they called it right in. I had to see a specialist after my visit and the referred me to another great doctor. Had to chat at a later date with Dr. Matthews, regarding second opinion , she called me right back. Since I am new here and have only physically been in the office once, I gave it 4 stars.

        UPDATE: YAY GENTLE DENTAL!!!! You are getting 5 STARS from me this review. I have left honest reviews for this office a couple years now. I am not a person who likes to change an honest review, so I will leave another update for 11/2019 I am so happy to say, they have changed some staff!!! May I add for the better!!! Love love love the check in now. Friendly, fast and can answer questions 😁 There is a new hygienist named Shane and I am so his new fan!! I had never met a male hygienist before and I adore him. He is full of knowledge and he is very efficient. Now I hope they pay him well and he stays put!!!!! My husband also agree’s he is a great hygienist and we both rescheduled with Shane. Great find Gentle Dental 4/2019 I was at 3.5 stars When Doctor Halli McNaughton came back I was THRILLED!!! She is one of the best dentist I have ever met. She is reasonable, honest and her work is faster then most. I do not feel pain when I am in her chair and if we could hand out stars for individual reviews I would give Doctor Halli 5 stars! I will say in the past few months some of the front desk workers are better and seem to know what they are doing. The Regional manager is awesome and I truly feel bad I have forgotten her name. In 2018 I was at 1.5 stars My review no longer applies at all, so I have deleted my post but left my stars here.
