Great offices start with friendly receptionists. I will be back, as I was treated with kindness. The periodontist and her assistant are lovely smart women with a kind demeanor. Who says women aren’t good with tools?

Recently I had to visit your location in Albany, Oregon. My dentist was DR Van De Graaff and I could not be more pleased with his services. He made sure I could feel NO pain before he began, and when the tooth came out I felt nothing. Because of another dentist during my younger years, I almost have a panic attack just walking into the office. Thanks to Dr.Van De Graaff for a perfect appointment. I don't care I have to drive for over half hour to get there I believe I have found my dentist for life.

I love this place. It's across the corner from where I work, and I needed a place downtown that would work logistically without me having to take considerable time to travel. This is my second appt and I'm really happy with the service. Everyone is professional, knowledgable and friendly. They ask how your visit was and they give you itemized receipts if you want one. This is the first time I've been a patient at any Gentle Dentle and I'm really satisfied. This is the location in the Congress Bldg.

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 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.
