I have been taking my family to Dr. Lee at his practice in happy valley for almost 6 years now. Great service from him and his staff. They have always taken cared of my kids when we have dental needs. Finding the right dentist is as hard as finding a good primary care Dr., once you find one you are golden. Thanks Dr. Lee and team for such great care and service.

Recently moved to Happy Valley and was new to this office. Dr Lee and the employees at this location are so friendly! Had my cleaning and another appointment for two small cavities. It was a quick and painless process with Dr Lee giving updates during the process so I was aware how close we were to completing. Scheduling was easy too with a variety if time slots to choose from so I did not have to miss work.

The staff and Dr. Lee at the Happy Valley Gentle Dental have always provided my family and me with the best level of care. Their kindness and professionalism are outstanding! Dr Lee is an excellent dentist and he truly has our best interest at heart! We really appreciate his attention to detail and and the time he takes to explain to us our options. We hope to stay with Gentle Dental as long as we’re living in the area. Unfortunately last week my crown popped out, and I was concerned with getting an appointment and how much this would cost. The staff was was sympathetic to my concerns and was able to quickly get me an appointment. Dr. Lee always provides the best quality care with the most affordable options. I was pleasantly surprised when he was able to fix my my crown at a very affordable price! He also followed up with me the next day to see how how my crown was doing. The customer service I’ve received from Dr. Lee and his staff has always been nothing but the best. My initial concerns turned out to be a very pleasant experience. Thank you to the staff and Dr. Lee! My family and I appreciate all that you have done for us over the years!

I recently became a patient at Gentle Dental. Dr. Lee and his staff are amazing. I get nervous going to the dentist and he was very understanding. He took time to explain the procedure and constantly checked to see if I was okay. His assistants and office manager were so friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Dr Lee and his staff if you are looking for a professional and caring team.

The staff here are incredibly kind and wonderful to work with. I don't have dental insurance so I worried about whether I could afford to even be seen, I was pleasantly surprised they have affordable annual plans that offer a discount on their services. For me, that discount was the difference between me being able to be seen or not seen at all. I am really lucky I came across a group of people so dedicated to providing great dental care. Thank you Dr. Lee!!!

I couldn't be happier about choosing Happy Valley Gental Dental. Dr. Lee and the entire staff are courtious, friendly, and professional. I have a history of dental anxiety and I have had not experienced any discomfort in this office. They tell you exactly what the treatment is and exactly what your costs will be. There are no surprises. I highly recommend this office and it's staff.
