Had to go in for a wisdom tooth removal, it had broken and rotted to a nerve, not yet super painful, but not great either. Had a check up within a week and a half of speaking to them, after the exam they were able to get me an appointment to remove it the next day! Super nice, so professional, worked around my work schedule! Will definitely be going back to them. Side story: As I'm waiting for the numbing to take affect, a little girl in the next room over is scared of the big scary equipment. They managed to not only calm her, but had her laughing by the time they were done! Several of the other Doctors wondered over to see if they could help. It was the sweetest thing I'd ever seen...or heard rather...I was laying on the table!

Wanted to leave a positive word for Gentle Dental in Keizer Station. They were great with my two kids. I was a bit nervous to bring my youngest daughter for her first appointment ever since she is disabled and a wheelchair user. They went above and beyond to make sure she was comfortable, even helping with some rolled up towels for positioning her in the chair. They were kind and patient and worked with her to try to get X-rays as easily as possible. In the meantime, my older son was in the next room getting his cleaning and was totally at ease. The dentist was very sweet but the superstar was the hygienist, Diane, that worked with my daughter. Very highly recommend!

In my 59 years I have never felt so comfortable at "the dentist" ever. Dr. Shull is my dentist and I imagine the other dentists there are just as good. I highly recommend them.

Have been taking my 3 kiddos here for years. Even though they aren't a pediatric dental clinic, they are exceptional with kids and accommodate at every age. They were able to talk and interact their way through a full cleaning with my 2 year old. Both dentists do a great job and take time to explain my son's special circumstances and what to expect in the future (congenitally missing many teeth).

I have been very impressed by the staff at the Keizer Gentle Dental. Dr. Shull has this calming presence to him that eases my anxiety. Kristi (the hygenist) and Laura (the dental assistant) are both great at what they do and are personable and friendly, making the experience feel more like a salon appointment than a dental appointment. Most importantly, the quality of work that I receive is well explained and well done. Thanks Gentle Dental!

Honest and gentle professional dental care! They really care for the patients. We were in another dental office and they were asking for more than 900.00 and gentle dental did it for 76.00 for the same job! We're very pleased with their service and honestly we will recommend to all our family and friends.
