With a variety of ways to pay for dental procedures, including zero-down payment plans, we’ll ensure you get the dental attention you need.

In addition to general family dentistry, we also offer orthodontics,,. Beyond biannual cleanings, checkups, and routine dentistry, we’ll inform you about oral hygiene so you can maintain healthy teeth and gums between visits.

Our considerate and caring team of dentists, hygienists, orthodontists, and support staff are here to make sure every aspect of your visit is relaxed and pain-free. Whether you need cavities filled, a dental cleaning or braces , or oral surgery, you’ll be treated with the respect and thoughtful consideration you deserve — just like family.

Everyone in this office - doctor, hygienist, office staff - everyone is friendly, compassionate, patient, and extremely professional. Tia, the hygienist, stands out as a particular jewel. She went out of her way to use and makes note of my preference of cleaning technique. Twice while I was there, she was able to work someone into her busy schedule so that they could be seen as soon as possible. Thank you to everyone at Gentle Dental for a positive experience!

Every time I go to Gentle Dental, I have a great experience. They are all so friendly and welcoming and have created such a nice atmosphere within the office. The last time I was in, Jon Petersen worked with me. He is incredibly efficient and kind. I had a wonderful experience- and I never though I would EVER say this, but here it is: I’m actually looking forward to going back to the dentist!!!

Today I had to go to the dentist to do a check up, and book some fixing to do. I was absolutely terrified! But EVERYONE especially Tyler (I hope that was her name 🤞🏻) and Dr. Henrie was absolutely incredible and made me feel sooo comfortable and reassured me that everything will be okay. They front desk staff was so kind and helpful too. I will recommend this dentist to ANYONE and EVERYONE! 👍🏻

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 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.
