Drove to the Dallas, OR location as my locations were booked out for quite some time. The receptionist was a rockstar managing a busy lobby, phones, scheduling, etc. Dr. Means was so thorough an knowledgeable. He made a very anxious time feel so easy for me. I can’t not mention the hygienist, Ashley. She was so dang sweet and did such a good job making sure I was comfortable through my whole cleaning.

I cannot put into words how much these precious people helped my family during a dental emergency. To a person, each one genuinely cared. Together, they turned a very dark day into one of our brightest. We could not be happier. I'd give them 10 stars if I could. THE BEST!!!

I have always had iffy experiences with dentists so when I came in for fillings, I was super nervous. The team at Gentle Dental was phenomenal at making me feel comfortable and ease my nerves. I'm 110% satisfied and, frankly, thrilled with how the team and Dr. Means helped me. I recommend them to ANYONE who has stress/anxiety/concerns about going to the dentist. They are awesome!!

They are one of the few people who will take OHP and are close to home. Yes, the appointments can be set out a long time but when your the only office in the area that will take OHP what can you do? While I had a great time with the team that took out my wisdom tooth, I did overhear that they were having a shortage of O2 tanks, meaning I wasn’t given some before I was gassed. A little worrying but everything went smooth. Dr. James did good work and his assistant was really sweet.

What an amazing experience! I am the kind of person that will cancel a dentist appointment in the parking lot. Gentle Dental not only helped me calm those fears but was so nice and caring. All of the staff is just amazing! Even called me the next day to make sure everything was ok. Thank you for literally the best experience I’ve ever had at a dentist office!

so I live in Lincoln city and was a bit frustrated when I had to drive my daughter all the way to Dallas for sealant for the first appt. I was referred to them by smile keepers. I was under the impression that they were going to do fillings for the appt, not just sealant. anyhow, I had to make another appt for my daughter since I live in a town with dentist offices who dont know what to do with kids. so I made the appt and they ended up putting a crown on one tooth and a baby root canal for another tooth. let me just say, this place is amazing!!! my daughter had no idea they had a needle in her mouth because they distracted her so well. my daughter also said she barely felt any pain. the staff there were also shocked at how well my daughter behaved. overall I give gentle dental a big thumbs up 👍

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 call us at 800-277-1112.

You can also enroll at one of our locations.
