        Dr Skovborg is wonderful! I have major anxiety issues when it came to dental work until seeing her. She found a way for me to successfully get dental work done (from fillings to root canals) with no anxiety. I highly recommend her and Gentle Dental. The entire staff is professional and friendly.

        Clackamas Town Center Gentle Dental really came through when I had a crown unexpectedly come off. Even though their schedule was very full (closing the rest of the week for the holidays) they worked me in and I was able to have it repaired within a few hours. Special thanks to Shawna at the front desk for helping make it happen; she’s awesome and I appreciate her (and Dr. Skovborg’s) efforts to help me so very much. Gratefully yours, Tammi P Mitchell

        Got my braces done here and I’m so thankful I did. I went to consuls at a few other places and they all wanted to pull extra teeth and said they would be on longer. Came here and had my braces for 19mon no extra teeth pulled and excellent care;)

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.

        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.

        Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for everyone to obtain quality dental care at an affordable price.
