        The staff at Gentle Dental are amazing! I have had a fear of dentists most of my life, however Doctor Carmel Townshend and her assistants have really helped me overcome that fear with their gentle and professional demeanor and their positive attitude. I highly recommend Gentle Dental for any and all dental needs! 💗💗💗

        Really great and gentle! The entire staff was hilarious and they even entertained me with cool teeth facts when I asked. Also, they let me keep my teeth after they pulled them. Probably the best dentist I've ever been to.

        My recent experience with Smile Keepers was excellent. A piece of my molar had broken off and they got me in immediately to repair it. I was impressed with how quickly they got to me and Dr. Lelande was very gentle and informed me of the steps through the process. He did a perfect job with the filling and I couldn't be happier. Thank you to everyone who works there for your professional and caring team!

        I used to be terrified to go to the dentist,I remember screaming and crying,begging my mom to not make me go!The very first appointment with Smile keepers was almost 16yrs ago,back wen they had a different name .I was so scared I was literally trembling and I remember how nice and comforting they all were.From the lady that checks patients in,to the assistant,to the dentist.Even the office and rooms are comfortable!!As soon as my oldest son (now almost 19)was old enough for his first denti3 I took him ther,then his little brother wen he was old enough.Both of my boys have been cavity free for years now because of the care we receive from smile keepers!They even call to remind me wen its coming close to the boys' yearly cleaning!I honestly could go on and on about smile keepers and staff but you should go and check them out yourself,you'll never want to go to a different dentist again!!!

        I bring my 9 year old here and he always has a smile on his face when he leaves there. Tiffany and Amanda at the front desk are always kind and understanding and the doctors have been amazing. Dr Kannan and Dr Marynak have always taken the time to listen to me and help us anyway they can. The assistants always take such good care of us as well, we wouldn't go anywhere else . Thank you for everything you do!
