Dr. Lee is fantastic. He is patient and explains everything thoroughly. He always checks on us after any non-routine service to make sure we are doing well. He takes care of my family too and does a wonderful job with my small kiddos. I would highly recommend him to anyone for their dental needs.

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.

Dr. Lee is great. He’s sensitive and understanding with any issues. He’s always explained my treatment in an easily digestible way, and ensures I’m comfortable during visits. His hygienist is sweet and gentle. They really work to find the best solution for you. Highly recommend, best dentist I’ve ever had.

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.

Dr. Lee and the entire staff are amazing! I have had a number of poor and traumatic experiences with dentists in my life causing me to be very apprehensive about any dental work. Dr Lee and his entire staff listened to all of my concerns and made me feel listened to, comfortable and at ease. I highly recommend them for any type of dental work.

Gentle Dental Happy Valley was caring, kind and as their name suggests, gentle. I moved from a different Gentle Dental location to this one. Dr. Lee was professional and caring, explained everything he did, and checked up on me two days after my fillings. I have had a significant fear of dentists that has kept me from going for 3.5 years. However, I had x-rays, cleaning and two fillings here with no pain, and a lot of care. I highly recommend Dr. Lee and his team.

The BEST care and treatment we have ever received from any dentist office. We transferred from our local office after numerous frustrating visits there. I have two little ones and they are so gentle and playful and so kind with them. The receptionist is friendly and sweet and welcoming. The dentist is thorough and patient. The staff is equally as wonderful. I can’t say enough great things about this office. Even before the pandemic everything was always clean and sanitized. Everyone is so professional and relatable. Thank you for making this so easy and enjoyable for my children and my family!

LOVE THIS PLACE!! I was scared to go to the dentist. especially because I had a horrible appointment 2 months prior at Aspen dental. But WOW I seriously am excited to go to my next appointment! From the moment I walked in the woman at the front desk was so sweet and friendly and then the dentist assistant who did my X-rays was awesome he was very knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable and Dr. Lee was a rockstar he explained everything he was doing the whole time. Answered all my questions and made me feel confident in getting my teeth and smile to my goal! I seriously called my mom and my boyfriend right after my appointment to let them know this is where they need to go from now on!!(update I Just got two fillings and Dr. Lee did an amazing job. He talked me through everything and i was honestly so comfortable I could have fell asleep. Don’t wait any longer make an appointment with this office :). )

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.

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.
