I was referred to this location for an emergency procedure. I went there, in extreme pain, at the scheduled time, but due to a scheduling error I was not on the schedule for that day and time, but the office manager and dentist took me anyway and performed the procedure. The staff and doctor were extremely friendly, very helpful, very caring. Doctor Young was very helpful, he made sure I was very numb, told me everything he was doing, and the procedure was quick and painful. I would like to thank the doctor and staff at this location for their great service!

I absolutely love my Hygienist and Dentsist. The Manager Samantha and the staff greet each patient with a smile, while always making sure that I leave understanding whatever future treatment that I might have and going over all financials before hand.. I look forward to my next dental visit and I trust that I will receive the best care during each and every visit at the Oregon City office!!...

I’ve been going to Dr. Reese for about two years and he’s amazing. He is the most professional and knowledgeable ortho I’ve seen! I moved to Arizona for a few months and was not happy with my orthodontists I had down there. When I came back to Oregon and saw Reese, he fixed my teeth up so quickly! He is VERY precise and always knows what he’s doing. He makes a plan for the next visit and informs me of what I should be expecting. I am so happy with him as my orthodontist and he’s the reason I am giving this review. Thank you Reese!!! 😀😀😀😀

Dr. Young and staff are super cool. Way above and beyond...they genuinely care about helping you. Very compassionate. Cares about getting things done quickly to get you out of pain. Very understanding about anxiety issues. 4 of my family members go to him and there is a reason why. Oh, and no making you feel like a creep because you dont brush and floss regularly. No shaming, just help. Highly recommend!

Dr Karli Herzog and her assistant were amazing! My son is Special Needs (Autistic). They were able to able to get his xrays, clean his teeth and check his teeth with little to no fuss. This Pediatric team was very patient, down to earth and pleasent to interact with. My son had a great experience! Highly recommended for kids “neurotypical” to special needs!!

I have been going to Gentle Dental since we moved here 13 years ago and so far I have had only outstanding care. I appreciate that I have been given options for my dental health and price options including dental insurance for seniors. I am a nervous wreck going to see a dentist but am always relieved when I have had a much better experience then what I expected.. One of the reasons I keep going back to Gentle Dental.

We brought our 3 year old, Andra, in to the Oregon City office to see the pedodontist, Dr. Karli. The reception area was clean and inviting and included a cute little play corner for her to sit at while we waited to be brought back. Once in our room, Dorena was very friendly and made sure that Andra was comfortable. Both her and Dr. Karli took the time to explain everything they were going to do with Andra in a way that made her comfortable and excited to be there! She was able to complete brushing, flossing, teeth counting and fluoride. She was very nervous about the use of the handpiece to polish her teeth and the staff did not force her but just said we would try again next time. Dr. Karli reviewed brushing and flossing with us and answered all of our questions without rushing us through the appointment. This was an excellent first visit for our daughter and she is really excited to come back again. Thank you!
