Google Gentle Dental Murrieta
We moved from Orange County to Murrieta, in January ,2019 and going to our old dentist, in Los Alamitos, was 75 miles away, and nearly two hours to get to. When the Corona virus hit and nearly everything shutting down, I decided to find a dentist closer to where we live. So, it was the end of June that I called 800-Dental. The person whom I spoke with connected me with Gentle Dental. I then spoke with Robert, the office manager, who was very helpful. He set up an appointment for my wife and I, in three days from our initial conversation. Their introductory offer includes: a consultation, x-rays, and teeth cleaning. We bought their in office insurance plan for $79.00, for the two of us. We're then able to save 20%, on the various procedures that are performed, by the dental staff. Any procedure or cost of services that are unclear at that time, Robert is more than happy to help you understand your questions. So, if you're new to Murrieta, and you need a dentist, give Gentle Dental a call and I'm sure you will be very happy, with whatever service you need performed. John.

My hygienist, Tam Pham, was excellent. She explained the need for a somewhat invasive cleaning procedure and answered my many questions. Tam took extra time to ensure I was comfortable before proceeding, which I was grateful for. Because the procedure required two visits, she willingly came in an hour early for me to ensure as little time past between appointments. She is a caring and skilled professional.

Everyone was so friendly and accommodating. I am a single mother of two, and they allowed me to go back and forth between each of my children to check on them. They were very patient with my son who is terrified of needles. And my 9-year-old daughter, who was extremely nervous about changing dentists (their regular dentist was closed due to COVID-19), now says she loves Gentle Dental and wants them to be her "forever dentists, for her whole life.

I couldn't be happier about choosing Happy Valley Gental Dental. Dr. Lee and the entire staff are courtious, friendly, and professional. I have a history of dental anxiety and I have had not experienced any discomfort in this office. They tell you exactly what the treatment is and exactly what your costs will be. There are no surprises. I highly recommend this office and it's staff.

It was my first time making a appointment here since I had to change my dentist office due to my insurance changing. After reading the reviews for here I was kind of skeptical.. but after my visit today I have nothing but great thing as to say about everyone here! The hygienist was super friendly & the dentist was helpful & non judgemental. Would definitely reccomend if you have a fear of dentists because they are very easy going & make you feel good about everything going on!
