I just had the most fantastic experience with Brian and Dr. Bedula (so?). They were both warm, funny and thorough about answering all my questions. I was very nervous about my procedure and they did everything they could to put me at ease and didn’t make me feel silly for being so nervous. They were also both very gentle and the procedure was quick and easy. I am very grateful to both of them for making something so stressful so pleasant. Can’t recommend them too highly!

Ok. So I am terrified of the Dentist. Any dentist. So much so that I avoided going to one for almost a decade. Unfortunately I had a tooth break and was forced to finally go. I went to see Dr Sheppard and I was immediately put at ease by her and her staff. From checking in to the time I was out of the chair they they took my anxiety and fear away and treated me with respect and consideration. They were kind, funny, informative and clear in their explanations. I could not be happier with everyone there. I super highly recommend this office to anyone who has fear of the dentist. Dr Sheppard is fantastic and everyone there is great. Not afraid of the dentist anymore.

I LOVE this team of people and actually enjoy going to dentist! Sick and twisted for some folks, maybe but this team just "gets it". A variety of personalities all focused on YOU, the customer and making sure you have a good experience. They utilize services for appointment reminders and I've had great luck getting in earlier when there was a need to do so. I highly recommend this Gentle Dental office and particularly this team.

My wife and I went to gentle dental because it was in our network. I had a cleaning there and my wife had a cleaning and a little work done, I have liked everyone from Kim at the front desk to the dentist. They squeezed me in same day to start my cleaning and the dentist hopped on the job as I would have been waiting for a hygienist. This crew rocks. My wife has agreed with the positive experience. Thanks guys! Bradley and Devoney
