Dr. Hong has a personable bedside manner, and is open to patient preferences for their own plan of treatment. I appreciated that she is willing to do a least invasive approach, before taking my treatment to the next level. Thank you Dr. Hong! :)

Dr. Guptha (hope I spelled it correctly) is kind and gentle. Laura and Christie are incredibly sweet and compassionate. Kathy and the rest of the ladies (I cannot remember their names, sorry ladies) are so nice. It's easy to get there and parking is not a problem. Very convenient hours, as well.

I’m a new patient I was there just last night I had a very good experience with the whole staff I dealt with they were very kind I did have a tooth they couldn’t floss during the cleaning I’m hoping will be taken care of as it wasn’t to clear if that tooth during the examination had been documented at least that’s what I gained from that issue other than that it was a pleasant experience I hope they rest of my appointments are just as good as this one was for me

If you’re looking for a friendly, professional and helpful dental office then you’ve found it! I was so thrilled with my experience here that I felt compelled to leave a review which is unlike me. I have a bit of anxiety when it comes to dental offices however by the end of my time here I felt as if I could stay all day. The tech I worked with, Kathy was unbelievably patient and kind as we worked together to get everything we needed done. The doctor was so friendly and knowledgeable and made the whole experience a pleasant one. I’m very thankful to have such a wonderful dental office in my backyard. I hope you have just as wonderful of an experience here!

I have had white spots on my teeth for couple years but the white spot on my front tooth really bothered me cosmetically, I always would be shy to smile because of it or take close up pictures. I called Kathy, Dr Pham’s lead assistant explained to her how I felt about my front tooth and/or if there was something that could be done. And she immediately talked to me about a new procedure, and got me scheduled the next day. I am beyond happy with the results. Dr Pham and Kathy are amazing I am so thankful for them. Kathy was very helpful and friendly. The entire team had a great attitude. Fast and friendly service. Definitely coming back thanks guys.

Who wants to go to the dentist? Well, go to Gentle Dental (Lake Tapps) and it is like seeing your friends. From the moment you walk in the door the ladies up front are so welcoming. They are all very detailed and explain it all.. charges, insurance.. ect.. Then you go into the back again everyone is do kind, you truly feel comfortable. They explain every move when having any detailed work done. I actually enjoy my visits. They are a team and work great together.. you can see it.

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.

Flexible Financing

We understand that you don’t always have the cash at hand, that’s why we accept most major credit cards and offer flexible financing options which can be helpful if you require more extensive work, orthodontics, or cosmetic procedures that aren’t covered by insurance. These plans can offer:

  • Low down payment and no interest1
  • No money down and no interest2
  • Extended terms up to 48 months at 14.9% promotional interest rates3

We want to make paying for dental services as easy as possible. For more information, call us toll-free at 1-800-GENTLE1 to get in touch with the Gentle Dental Office in your neighborhood.
