Everyone from the front desk to the hygienists to the Dr are amazing. I get nervous going to see a dentist but this is the first time that I can go & am totally calm. I would recommend them to anyone who's looking for a place to go.

We were out of town on a short trip and my nephew's space maintainer on one side broke leaving him unable to eat or even talk normal. His regular office couldn't get him in for 2 more days. I called Gental Dental Skyline and spoke with the office manager, Kimber, whom told me to bring him in they'd take care of him. We came in and Dr. Peterschmidt saw him right away and got him out of pain. I'm beyond thankful for their compassion and ability to help him! I highly recommend this wonderful office! Thank you!!

My son, who is 11, needed filings. Dr. Means and his assistant did a great job. They know how to talk to kids to make them feel comfortable. The procedure was quick and painless. My son had a positive experience and left with a smile. Great job!

Questions about Insurance?

If you have dental insurance and are concerned about coverage do not hesitate to reach out to our friendly staff. Our team here at Gentle Dental will help you with any payment or insurance questions you may have and will work closely with you to help you get the most out of your dental plan.

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 Gentle Dental Smile Plan

The Gentle Dental Smile Plan is perfect if you don’t have dental insurance and offers significant savings. The plan has no waiting period, involves no paperwork, and covers all pre-existing conditions.

You can enroll as an individual, couple or family and receive significant discounts on preventative services including exams, cleanings, fluoride treatments, and x-rays, as well as a host of other dental services. All other services including specialty care such as extractions, root canals, and orthodontics are discounted 20% from our list prices.

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.

To sign up or for questions, please call us at 800-277-1112.

You can also enroll at one of our locations.

Flexible Financing

We understand that you don’t always have the cash at hand, that’s why we accept most major credit cards and offer flexible financing options which can be helpful if you require more extensive work, orthodontics, or cosmetic procedures that aren’t covered by insurance. These plans can offer:

  • Low down payment and no interest1
