I haven’t been to a dentist in 15 years, scared witless, kept putting it off. Exam went easy, had to have 2 teeth pulled out, put off till couldn’t anymore, Dr Henrie is awesome and his assistant is the greatest, have a family group daily text that I send out a prayer to each morning and have fun on, told them the next morning how great my experience was and was told my great grandson already goes there for braces and feels the same. Thank you to the whole staff. God Bless You!!!

Dr. Henrie and Dr. Petersen took great care of me at my visit. They were very informative with what options were available and even helped re-glue a permanent retainer that had popped out. The support staff was amazing and friendly too. Would highly recommend Gentle Dental to anyone.

I am so glad that I am a patient here at Gentle Dental. The doctor and his extremely well-trained staff make each visit as pleasant and professional as you will find. Have recently undergone several procedures, the hygienist is arguably the best at what she does. And speaking on the doctor, the man top notch. They all made an awful morning bearable. Thanks Gentle.

Ok so… I haven’t been to the dentist in YEARS! I walked in completely prepared to be berated but that was not the case in the least. I walked in and was greeted by a beautiful receptionist. She took the time to check me in as a new patient and ensured that all of my paperwork was signed. I sat down and in the time it took me to open my email, I was called. You want to talk about Dental Hygienists who go above and beyond?? My girl took X-rays, cleaned my teeth, waited by me for the dentist to show up and the whole time the conversation was personable, light and I laughed so hard I had tears coming down my eyes. We spoke about the work that’s needed going forward and I can confidently say that I will NEVER go 6 months without heading to the dentist AGAIN. This place has made me a believer that there truly are Dental offices that don’t feel like morgues! The staff was amazing, the office was clean and quiet (not when I was in there laughing so hard my side cramped) but I’m sure it settled down nicely again after. I was able to go home to my 5 year old and smile and say that I enjoyed my dental experience. I will be heading back there in about 3 weeks to start on the things we discussed and if I’m being completely honest… I can’t wait!

Finding a good dental office can be challenging, I was pleased when I found Gentle Dental of Medford. The front desk was professional and friendly. It was my first appointment, X-rays & exam. Pamela was my contact for X-rays. She put me at ease immediately. Friendly, professional, caring, sensitive to my needs. The dentist, Dr Tiffany Flaherty, greeted me with a smile as she listened to my concerns. She took extra time to smooth a rough tooth. I did not feel rushed, the office took good care of me. Having been a registered dental assistant for over 30 years, I am a good judge of dental care. I highly recommend this office.

Super clean office space, great deal as far as a cleaning/x ray/exam went. I actually missed my appointment because I got the times mixed up and didn’t realize that until they gave me a courtesy call but WHILE on the call gave me another time later that day because someone else cancelled which was really nice. Hygienist was really nice and easy to talk to (not to mention super cute). Friendly staff, can’t wait to go back in another 6 months for another cleaning. Haven’t seen the dentist in over 8 years, after my visit they made me want to reinvest in my oral health again. =)
