I have been going to Gentle Dental for several years. I have found all of the staff very courteous and helpful. My dental hygienist (Maggie) is awesome. She talks you through all of her procedures and and it's very general while cleaning. Dr. Bergesson is so friendly, gentle and just a great person. I highly recommend this dental office and staff.

Today I had my first appointment with Maggie, a Dental Hygienist at Gentle Dental. Because of Covid19 I hadn't had my teeth cleaned for 18 months and was very concerned. Maggie made me feel completely at ease and when she cleaned my teeth I couldn't have been more satisfied. I had one of the best experiences in many years and because I am a retired Dental Hygienist I am very aware of her good technique being both thorough and painless.

Always kind, attentive, caring. I use to avoid the dentist because I had so many terrible experiences. While I do not love going now, I go. And more importantly trust that I will be listened to and cared for well. Dr. Bergeson is absolutely the best dentist I’ve had and I’m very appreciative and grateful for him. Been going to him for years now and he knows he isn’t allowed to retire as long as I have teeth.

I’m always shocked at how friendly and professional this team is! From the front receptionists to the dental assistants and all the way to the dentist. The environment is always welcoming, comforting and relaxing.. I know, I know, relaxing isn’t a word to usually describe a dental office but it’s true! Staff also has a great sense of humor which really helps keep the environment so peaceful. Thank you, Gentle Dental team and staff!

They got me In right away, they did not make me wait in pain like other places have, they pulled my teeth which is what I needed, they did a great job making me comfortable and were very nice. I’d recommend them highly to anyone on ohp who doesn’t have a lot of options. Never ever ever go to arrow dental ! Always go here !

After a visit to another dentist who incorrectly said I needed a root canal on a perfectly good tooth, I was thrilled that Dr. Bergeson correctly diagnosed it as needing just a filling...the tooth has a tiny surface cavity. This office was truly welcoming. I was nervous about going but can't wait to get all my teeth fixed by Dr. B. Will recommend my adult son to start going here even though he lives in Portland. Will be worth the trip!

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.
