I’m a first time patient and had a great experience at Gentle Dental with Dr. Schick and dental assistant Becca! They were welcoming, knowledgeable and kind (thorough too!). I’d definitely recommend Dr. Schick to others and look forward to continuing to work with her.

I always have a solid visit at Gentle Dental! Going to the dentist can feel scary and vulnerable, with all the sharp tools and pain. The technicians and dentist inform the patient of all the procedures before execution and are gentle on my teeth. The positive impact of this consent-based care cannot be overstated! Doctor Schick is very caring and knowledgeable. She has helped me with teeth grinding and TMJ. Billing can be kind of a headache, but I find this similar across all medical offices. Welcome to private insurance.

Dr. Schick is very kind and professional. While doing a filling and numbing the area around the tooth, she was very gentle and the shot was the least painful I’ve ever had.

I have been terrified of dentists since I was a kid after a few horrible experiences. I have tried a lot of dentists and was finally happy with one until he retired. So I had to find a new dentist and that thought was terrifying! I liked the name Gental Dental so I made an appointment with Dr. Schick. It was such a great visits she made me feel safe and really listened to my fears. She talked me through each step and was incredibly gental making sure I felt safe as we went. I HIGHLY recommend them :)

We recently moved to Bellingham area from Illinois. I cracked a molar tooth in my right lower jaw the other day, so started looking for a local dentist to deal with it. Based on the on-line reviews of the local Gentle Dental in Sehome Village, I called them up, made an appointment to have them look at it, which they did, I was very impressed and pleased with their professional care, and even more impressed and happy that I was able to get this tooth taken care of the next day, which took 2 1/2 hours. I was again very impressed and pleased with and thankful for the professional treatment that I received, which was even better than the previous dental care I had back in Illinois, which I was very happy with. I am very glad to have found a great dentistry practice here in the Bellingham area!!

Dr. Schick is great at her job. I got some cavities filled and I barely felt the pinch of the needle. She makes sure you’re numbed enough and always asks if you’re comfortable. Today she called to make sure my fillings were feeling okay. Normally I am terrified of the dentist but here I feel very safe, and only a little nervous of the big needle.

I was scared of going to the dentist before I found this place, but I definitely feel cared for and Dr Schick and the rest of the staff have done everything they can to make it a more comfortable experience, from giving me specific signals to use to stop them if I felt pain, to offering to put extra topical numbing on my gums when I got a cleaning, they are very friendly and caring and it really helps! They also have a pretty flexible schedule (open on Saturdays!) and I started going there on their payment plan before I got insurance, staggering my appointments so they fit with when I got paid / could pay. I walked away from my first appointments feeling excited and triumphant because I finally felt like getting all my cavities filled was possible and wouldn't even be scary!
