Friendly and the dentist was amazing when it came to giving me my numbing shot, I hardly felt it!! The hygienists are super nice too!!! Only bad thing is appts are usually booked out a ways. But understandable. The only bad thing I have to say is that I wish they would have the patient fill out the Covid questions, and if you’ve had the vaccine or not. I feel that when everyone can hear your response it becomes to personal, and other patients don’t need to hear whether you’ve received the vaccine or not. It made me uncomfortable.

If you have not been to the dentist in five years or so because of whatever reason... but you know you need to and you feel ready. This is the place to go. Ask for Lara. I dragged myself there kicking and screaming all the way. I promised myself a new fish if I followed through with going (bribed myself). Tears started to flow as soon as it was time for x-rays. Lara went above and beyond to do everything in her power to help me get through this. The dentist is extremely kind as well. I have no fear of going back for my cleaning. Imagine that. Afterward I bought 2 fish and 2 frogs 🐟🐠🐸🐸. Oh, and no cavities!!!🦷 Andrea

First time at this dental office in keizer. We were very impressed with Ms. Shanice's work ethic! She was very accommodating, calm, collective and knowledgeable about the dental industry; she made me (father) and my daughter feel very comfortable with the dental procedures. Shanice would also be great working with children as they are normally very anxious/nervous when seeing their dentist. Dr. Lau was also pleasant as was Miriam his assistant. We definitely recommend this location and look forward to coming back for our family's dental care. Thank you Gentle Dental!!

Questions about Insurance?

If you have dental insurance and are concerned about coverage do not hesitate to reach out to our friendly staff. Our team here at Gentle Dental will help you with any payment or insurance questions you may have and will work closely with you to help you get the most out of your dental plan.

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.

Payment options include cash, major credit cards, discount plans, and private financing.

The Gentle Dental Smile Plan

The Gentle Dental Smile Plan is perfect if you don’t have dental insurance and offers significant savings. The plan has no waiting period, involves no paperwork, and covers all pre-existing conditions.

You can enroll as an individual, couple or family and receive significant discounts on preventative services including exams, cleanings, fluoride treatments, and x-rays, as well as a host of other dental services. 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.

To sign up or for questions, please visit www.gdsmileplan.com or call us at 800-277-1112.

You can also enroll at one of our locations.

Flexible Financing

We understand that you don’t always have the cash at hand, that’s why we accept most major credit cards and offer flexible financing options which can be helpful if you require more extensive work, orthodontics, or cosmetic procedures that aren’t covered by insurance. These plans can offer:

  • Low down payment and no interest1
  • No money down and no interest2
  • Extended terms up to 48 months at 14.9% promotional interest rates3

We want to make paying for dental services as easy as possible. For more information, call us toll-free at 1-800-GENTLE1 to get in touch with the Gentle Dental Office in your neighborhood.

  1. Valid photo ID and checking account, credit card or debit card required.
  2. On approved credit. For promotional purchases over $300 if paid in full within promotional period. If promotional purchase is not paid in full within promotional period, interest will be imposed from the date of purchase at 26.99% APR.
