Let me start by saying that I have severe anxiety regarding the dentist. Very severe. My experience at Gentle Dental Division, however, was so pleasant and calm from beginning to end. Their Front Desk person is so warm and welcoming and helpful that you just can’t help but feel at ease. (You’re the best!). Every Hygienist and Dentist that helped me was equally as warm and helpful. They answered all of my questions, gave gentle guidance and were incredibly professional. I would highly recommend Gentle Dental Division, especially if you have anxiety about seeing a dentist. I’ve found my new dentist and I’m ready for a clean mouth and a smiling future!

Excellent dental experience! My first visit last week went well enough. I was able to get a back to back appointment to include a cleaning. The front office ladies were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. First impression is important to me. My cleaning went well. I was very impressed with the hygienist. So thurough and used visual aid when explaining dental hygiene tips. With me, that helped! It kept me from zoning out on him and having my thoughts wonder to everything but hygiene. Ha! Dr. Loon gave me a treatment plan I was very happy with. She might be young but she seems to know her sh##. Very nice, knowledgeable and thurough.( My last dental experience...get em in, get em out) I was given a prescription of antibiotics for a tooth needing an extraction. Besides the infection, I was experiencing terrible ear and throat pain from that tooth. The day after starting the antibiotic, the pain had subsided. I was able to have a good weekend. Yesterday, I had the tooth extraction. It went much better than I expected. Dr. Loon was gentle and extracted it with ease and in one piece. For a back tooth with a crown and large cavity... impressive! After icing for swelling and medication for pain, it was tolerable. Today, there is very little swelling and almost no pain. Best extraction experience to date! (Dental assistant lacks confidence and experience but very nice) I don't usually leave comments, let alone detailed ones. But after seeing the rating and some of the reviews...it was necessary to share my experience and opinion. ;)

Excellent excellent excellent. So kind. So gentle. Also I have a crush on my dentist. She gives me butterflies, she is beautiful, kind, sweet, the list goes on forever. I have never experienced such gentle, compassionate, thorough, professional, and clean dental work and I have some history of dental work. Everything was explained until I had understanding. Nothing was rushed. They found a way to work with my insurance to best serve me. I cannot give enough praise for the amazing employees here. Best dental experience ever....hands down.

Always a pleasant experience. I heard about this place through my husband, he said it was a great experience and he is usually unhappy with his dental experiences. I took my daughter for her first dental visit there and she was happy, she loves the little treasure box and the front staff is always so sweet. We got a free orthodontist consultation and determined my daughter needs partial braces, so they made up a payment plan for her to get them if I decided to do it. Though I had decided to wait, it is nice they made a potential plan for me that would be good for a few months.

I went to the Gentle Dental Division office this evening for my six month cleaning. During my last visit, Keith handled much of the exam. It was much to my surprise, then, that I saw Stephanie Mclean this time. I remembered her from the Idylwood office. Stephanie recognized me immediately and we struck up a fun conversation about the joys of driving back and forth to Salem. As we talked, I settled in for the hygiene cleaning, which traditionally has been unpleasant, and full of sharp pains for some very sensitive areas in my mouth. Stephanie started by offering, and then applying some type of desensitizing paste from Colgate, and then proceeded with the cleaning. I don't know whether I owe my thanks more to the paste, or to Stephanie's skillful cleaning, but that was the single most relaxing and thorough hygiene appointment I think I've ever had. I don't impress easily, but I had to take a minute to express how much I appreciated her care today. Usually my muscles are tense, waiting for that moment of "through the roof" tooth pain, but it never came. I was at ease through the entire appointment, and even hummed as I walked out the door. I'll be telling everyone I know that the Gentle Dental Division office rocks, with the best hygienist around!!
