Don’t hesitate one second. They are hands down the best dentist I’ve ever had. Saved me a ton of money. My former dentist said I needed two crowns but this one said I actually only need one.

Although regular visits to the dentist have changed after the pandemic, my first appointment at Gentle Dental was smooth, safe, and efficient. The staff makes people feel welcomed and comfortable since they approach and treat all patients in a friendly manner. As expected, the office was clean and sanitary to prevent the spread of Covid-19. I had a dental checkup and cleaning, both were conducted professionally. The specialists took the time needed to explain the treatment process to me, and provided useful recommendations on how to take care of my teeth and gums in the future. I highly recommend Gentle Dental office in Keizer since they demonstrated a genuine concern for my oral health. Overall, excellent management and professional staff.

I just have to say one thing, if you need a good cleaning w a gental hygenist please ask for Lori. I have really bad dental anxiety and this time around i did not need sedation nor laughing gas to help me get through ny cleaning. Lori knows what shes doing and the staff are great! Quick and easy in and out!

They are so kind and very accommodating! My son is very scared of going to the dentist and they made him very comfortable. 10/10 recommend! My son needed to be referred to a pediatric dentist, which could take 2 weeks to hear back, I got a phone call and an appointment scheduled 2 days later!! Very impressed, we won’t go anywhere else.

Everyone in the office was very nice, and the technician who first saw me was great. When the Dentist came in she was very patient and explained everything to me, and was concerned that I was comfortable with it all. She seemed very knowledgeable and confident and was caring. I will certainly go there again.

Dr. Lau and his assistant, Laura, are an awesome team. They had me laughing most of the time. I had the pleasure of meeting them when my dentist left and Dr. Lau took over the job of inserting my crown. The crown molding did not live up to his expectations and had Laura take a new impression. He apologized for the inconvenience but as he said, this was my mouth and it should look perfect. I would recommend the duo team to anyone. Thank you, both!
