Wonderful experience! I had been experiencing pain in a root canal I had done at a different practice. The staff was very friendly and were able to get me in within 2 days to see there endodontist (Dr.Stephen Cutrera) he was awesome! So kind and caring he walked me through everything that was going on with my tooth. Ended up redoing my root canal and sending me home on antibiotics for the infection I had. He even gave me his cell phone number on his business card if I were to experience any other pain or problems. I would definitely recommend Woodstock gentle dental and endodontist Dr. Stephen Cutrera.

I’ve had an incredible experience here, and I don’t say that lightly. As a dental hygienist myself, I’m extremely particular in who I choose and the quality care I accept. I absolutely loved my hygienist Anna, she is thorough, genuine, and funny. The general dentist, Dr. Blakly gives high quality, complete exams and is so very hilarious. Dr. Reese is my orthodontist, and I wouldn’t trust anyone else to straighten my and my children’s teeth. He took the time to address my concerns in a timely yet detailed, meticulous manner. I had ortho years prior and Dr. Reese fixed my occlusion, bite issues, and straightened the imperfections that have been driving me crazy for years. The assistant’s, front office staff, PPE, and infection control are on point. Highly recommend!!

As a childhood patient of Dr. Blakely’s, I chose to return as an adult from 100 miles away just to have a front tooth filling/chip fixed - I am that confident in his work as a dentist and cosmetic dentist, and I’m thrilled I returned. He fixed my tooth and reshaped a few others near it that had worn from grinding/life, so I left in better shape than even before this tooth had chipped. I can’t recommend anyone more highly, and will be coming back for any future needs.

Woodstock gentle dental is hands down the best dental clinic I have ever been to. Starting with the front staffs warm greeting to the knowledgeable and proficient Dr. Blakely with a great bedside manner. Anna the Hygienist is by far the best hygienist I have ever seen. The protocol they have in place due to the pandemic works great. I will recommend Woodstock Gentle Dental to all my friends and anyone looking for a new dentist!

This spot is amazing! Not only the Dr. but also his staff. I needed a crown plus additional work going across my front teeth. He suggested what else could be possible, and now with planning, forethought and purpose, I have a beautiful new smile! 6 teeth all beautiful! Plus what a crew of talent and joy he has assembled. His dental assistants each with incredible talents in their own right, blended together. They felt as happy and gratified as I felt! Easy to see why they love their jobs! They laugh together with each of them complementing each other’s work as they reach their goal of perfection, what a joy! The Dr. set such a positive fun tone to work with, 5 Stars to all of them! They are as proud of my beautiful new smile as I am! Because I was lucky enough to come here, and the doctor showed me what was possible I walked out with a brand new smile! Thank you to to the Dr. and his whole crew! Gental Dental on Woodstock, in Portland, Oregon. So glad I found you!

I would give 10 stars if I could. This clinic is the best, from the friendly, helpful staff up front all the way back to the hygenist, assistants and dentists. Everyone seems happy at their work place, and good at what they do! Rave reviews to Dr. Stephen Cutrera, his assistant Angie and the all-around talented Ana for my recent root canal and abscessed tooth treatment. They kept me comfortable and informed through the whole process. THANK YOU SO MUCH for a job very well done! You guys all rock! You too Dr. Blakely -- my new ceramic bridge you installed in August is perfect!

The staff here is amazing and so informative. I have extreme anxiety about going to the dentist, and they were very patient with me during my first exam. I really recommend this office specifically due to their spectacular staff. Now I've done a deep cleaning, and my anxiety for the dentist is at an all time low!!

Had a back molar extracted and 2 months later went back to get extensive fillings done on my smile line. Had issues with PTSD at other dental offices in the past but this office understood my trauma and truly lived up to their name! They’ve changed my smile, my confidence, and my outlook on dentistry. Thank you Gentle Dental and Dr. Blakley!

I broke a tooth during a weekend. I was sure I was out of luck until the following week, but the Gentle Dental Woodstock office was able to get me in on Saturday!! Dr. Steven Blakly and his assistant Taylor took care of me. In fact, they provided exceptional care. I'm not a big fan of going to the dentist, and I'm certainly not the easiest patient, but they made the process go quick and pain free. The temporary crown I needed fit quite well and stayed put. And to top it off, they had the permanent crown back faster than I anticipated. It fits perfectly and feels just like the original. I was impressed, and highly recommend the Woodstock Gentle Dental team!

I am definitely one that is not very comfortable when I go to the dentist... However the Woodstock team, including Dr. Blakely, Office Manager Charlie, Treatment Coordinator Wendy, Treatment Coordinator Brandee , Dental Assistant Mitzi and everyone else we're absolutely phenomenal. They were spot on "Gentle" and made me feel right at home with down to earth personalities, amazing work, NO PAIN, and great laughs. I would suggest this team to anyone in general, and especially those with a decent fear of the dentist office. Vote Woodstock Gentle Dental for President....
