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!

Monica did an incredible teeth cleaning, kind, patient and gentle. Nicole, Gracie and Monica were all friendly and professional. They went the extra mile to help me. Nice people to deal with. 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.

I really give kudos to Monica, my hygienist. I am a wimp when it comes to the dentist! I have sensitive teeth, gum disease and bone loss. Monica has always done a thorough cleaning without hurting me. For me, that is so important. I would recommend Gentle Dental East Bell location. I have always been satisfied.

I just transferred to this GD location. What a great decision! First of all the dentist has been there about 20 years. At my other location there was a new dentist every six months or so. Staff is very pleasant and very skilled at their jobs. I just had a crown ... the most pain-free experience I’ve had ever! Appointments are on time as well. I feel this was the right move for me- very pleased with this office in general!
