        I had my SRP cleaning with Ambar she’s the best hygienist and I trusted her with my life. She was great the entire time and talked me through everything she was doing. She made me feel calm and I even was able to relax and take a little nap during my cleaning! I highly recommend gentle dental to everyone!

        For having a root canal done everything went well. Everyone was concerned that my visit was relatively painless. Everyone was concerned and sympathetic. The office staff were truly delightful and helpful.

        Ambar Chavez is the best dental hygienist I've ever had!! If I could give this office 10 stars, I would. Ambar is super friendly and goes the extra mile for patient care. My teeth have never been so clean and she was very gentle. Exceptional, courteous and professional service from the whole staff. If you are looking for a great experience and a wonderful dental office, go see Ambar!

        I had an appointment here at 11am got in around 11:10am so it was super quick. However, I did do my new patient packet beforehand. I requested it via email so that could be why I got in so quickly. I cannot say how AMAZING the staff and friendly the dentists are. My first appointment went super smooth. Took about an hour for x-rays and everything. Second appointment was my cleaning. The woman I had was very knowledgeable, after my cleaning she took a new toothbrush and gave me a mirror and showed me how to brush and floss my teeth. She literally brushed and flossed my entire mouth after the cleaning. I had no idea I was brushing incorrectly. I felt so to relaxed and confident in their hands. I wish I would've found these dentists a long time ago. They also recommended for me to buy a package deal for my teeth. It was $160 for a oral B toothbrush, mouthwash(which I had to purchase anyways since I have early stages of gingivitis) and an air flosser, they also threw in a few other goodies free of charge, saving me a bundle of cash. Overall my experience was amazing. Will never switch my dentist again.

        I just started going to this office in April and I couldn't be happier. Everyone has been so kind to me. I wanted to extend a special thank you to Nicole who works in the front office. She is AMAZING! She is kind, compassionate and understanding. She is the reason I will continue to come back. My Mom and I feel so blessed to have met such an incredible person who is so down to earth and friendly. She is a rarity! Human kindness, it's a beautiful thing!

Will highly recommend. Great team! IT ALL STARTS WITH NICOLES KIND SMILE! Had to have 2 root canals today. The staff comforted me instantly. The doctors bedside manor should be taught to others. Reassuring positive conversations along with confidence,;always asking what else they can do to make me comfortable.

        My family of 4 receive dental care at this office; we’ve been patients for nearly 10 years. I would recommend the office to anyone. I especially like how responsive the professional staff is: ask for help and they will help. For example, my 13-year old wasn’t brushing correctly and our tech did an entire lesson on how to brush. Best of all, they followed up on brushing technique at the next appointment.
