Above all, they helped me in an emergency dental appointment. Got me in when no one else would.The front desk employees were very polite and welcoming. The wait was short before taken back to he seen. The environment was clean and organized. The dentist quick and real. She gave options that gave me control of what can be done. I normally would be really apprehensive but she did her job well. I have already recommended this place to others.

I LOVE Gentle Dental West Salem! The front desk girls are absolutely amazing. Always keep me in the loop and reminded of my upcoming appointments. The Doctor and her assistant are the best I've seen hands down. Super accommodating to all requests or concerns. Went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and pain free (I was a little nervous for a tooth extraction). Would recommend this branch to all family and friends! If I could give 6 stars I would! Thanks Gentle Dental West Salem❤❤❤!

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.
