Our whole family loves it here! The staff is top notch. Very caring, good at what they do, and compassionate. Dr. Nedeclu (I guessed at the spelling!) is an amazing dentist, he is very precise. I also know he isn’t making stuff up when he tells me what is going on. He is not pushy at all and I know I can trust him when I ask for his advice. This is a big one. Elizabeth always puts me at ease and she does a great job on her cleanings. I never am in pain. The tech is hilarious and friendly, he always makes me laugh. I should know his name by now but I have forgotten. :( The front office staff always is willing to go above and beyond and you can tell they enjoy working there.

I skipped a few exams during the pandemic and was a little apprehensive about going back, but they made it real easy and comfortable. I also had recently lost a filling (and they found another that was cracked) so I had three appointments in just a few weeks. All three went great and, most importantly, no issues with insurance. Totally happy with the work.

Dr. Nedelcu and the whole team are so amazing. I was apprehensive to switch from my previous dentist after an insurance change, but I am so glad I chose this office!! Dr. Nedelcu fixed a couple of old fillings for me and I can smile without hiding them! Elizabeth is so thorough and gentle during my cleanings. I could take a nap, but I enjoy talking with her too much hehe! Mo and Joanna are so fast at taking X-rays and make the experience easy and quick. From the front office with Lorri and Sherry to the dental chair, my experience is always so pleasant and welcoming.

Dentist and dental assistant very thorough and nice, felt welcome. Only reason I didn't give a 5 star review is because the hygienist was not available to clean my teach and the timing of appts for return visits was limited. Much nicer experience than I expected, having come from a high-end dental practice. Thank you!

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.

You can also enroll at one of our locations.
