Just want to recognize Dr.Teh and his amazing staff at Gentle Dental in Tigard. Dr.Teh removed my daughters wisdom teeth and did an amazing job. He and his staff were very thorough and took excellent care of my daughter. She had minimal pain and was playing video games the same night of her surgery. I would highly recommend Dr. Teh and his staff!! Thank you for taking such amazing care of my daughter!

Literally pain-free dentistry. I’m a dentaphobic and I’m terrified every time I go to the dentist. To the point of sick to my stomach thinking about it. This was the very first appointment in 60+ yrs that I was NOT tortured. All staff members were kind, thoughtful, caring, very competent, and concerned about my comfort. I am definitely comfortable and confident my future appts will be comfortable and non-terror and pain controlled. It was also the first dental appt that I wasn’t condescended because of my fear and I really appreciated that. Your team came through for me and I am so grateful to have found you.

I started at this location suffering a terrible infection of both of my back molars, eroded away from years of GERD and unfortunately being unable to afford regular trips to the dentist. The staff and the dentist here are PHENOMENAL. I'm terrible with names, so I admittedly do forget them, but I don't forget faces and these folks will not be forgotten. They sent me over to the Lombard location to work with them after finding that I would need a surgical removal. I'm now pain-free on day TWO with only a little Ibuprofen and Acetaminophen in alternation as the dentist here suggested. I can only say that it's thanks to her recommendation and the fantastic work of the oral surgeon at Lombard (Dr. Joshua Teh, I have that one on the instructions!) in his expert extractions. They live up to their name.

Great experience at the Gentle Dental in Tigard. I was nervous about the pain I would feel when getting numbed up to have a filling put in. It’s hurt in the past, when getting a shot in the very back of my gums, so I expected pain. I was shocked when there was zero pain. They were very comforting and took very good care of me.

The staff at the Tigard office are AMAZING! I have extreme dental anxiety and they are always so nice and soothing and patient with me. They explain everything they’re doing and check on my welfare constantly while I’m in the chair and even once I leave the office. I can’t express how wonderful they are and I’ll continue to tell everyone who’s looking for a dentist to go to Tigard Gentle Dental!

Dr. Seo and Dr. Teh have both been excellent dentists! I came to this office terrified of dentists as an adult, and they have been nothing but wonderful. They truly restored my faith in dentists as a whole. Both doctors clearly care about the excellence of their work. The office staff is friendly and always spends time explaining what procedures are next, how much they will cost, and helping me work with my insurance to get the best care in the proper order to get the most out of my benefits. They have made a lifelong customer out of me. From fillings to crowns to implants, they've done it all for me. I honestly can't say enough nice things about this office. Thank you so much!

I have had a very positive experience with Gentle Dental. Their dental hygienists have been terrific -- some of the best I have ever had. They were smart, personable and gave me some helpful advice about my teeth. Dr. Trivedi, my dentist is great. Everything she recommended was backed up by my Navy dentist when I was deployed. The only issue I have had was when the office booked two cleaning appointments within a 6 month window. I had to pay for one of those out of pocket. Other than that, I would recommend this office to someone seeking a new dentist.

I hate going to the dentist more than spiders and heights put together. Having needles shoved into my gums is the closest thing to torture I have endured, but Dr. Atack was about the best dentist I can imagine. I believe that most dentists are secret sadists, but this one is totally different. I went in to them after another dentist had completely messed up and I was afraid to go back. He put me at ease, and walked me though everything with a kind, soft touch. I hated having the root canal, but he gave me some meds to help me relax and that was the first time anyone had offered that. I would give it 5 stars, but it is the DENTIST, so I can't say that I loved it, but I can recommend Dr. Atack. - UPDATE: JUST FOUND OUT THAT DR. ATACK IS NO LONGER THERE.

Been a patient for several years. Dr. Nandini has been awesome, going to great lengths to assuage my nerves and ensuring the work is done right, the first time, for the best price. Tigard Gentle Dental has restored my faith in dentistry and has finally got me to relax when their services are needed. Thank you, folks!

Dr. Atack was amazing! He really put me at ease about having to get a root canal and then did a wonderful job on it. During my nearly 2 hours in his chair he was pleasant, made nice conversation with the hygienist that was assisting, and was able to clearly understand my seemingly unintelligible attempts to converse as well. If any other Gentle Dental tells you that you need a specialist to complete a root canal on an upper molar, try to get this guy instead, it will save you a couple hundred dollars.
