I first saw Dr. Butler for a dental emergency and was so impressed with the level of care and kind bedside manner that I've now been back to catch up on all the dental care I put off due to fear of the dentist. Staff are wonderful and I've only had positive experiences start to finish

My team is friendly and fun, and they obviously took great care with their covid protocols. Just as important, they are very clear about treatment and unlike some of my previous experiences, I never feel like I'm being pressured to get unnecessary treatments done. To summarize: They have excellent customer service and are respectful of their customers needs and intentions.

Loved my first experience with them! I suffer from an anxiety disorder and they were really patient and comprehensive. The cost is pretty affordable compared to some places, and they explain everything very well. I can’t wait to go back and get everything sorted

My family has been coming to Nortpointe Gentle Dental for several years now. The staff is great - highly skilled and very friendly. We see dentist Dr. Butler and orthodontist Dr. Esphabod here and would absolutely recommend both.

My husband and I have been using these dentists for the last several years. The staff are always professional, courteous, and helpful. I get reminders for my appointments in a format that works for me and the doctors, assistants, and hygenists are top notch. I recently had a gum graft procedure done by Dr. Buddula which had incredible results. My smile looks perfect again! I would recommend North Point Gentle Dental to anyone looking for good affordable care. ❤

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 visit www.gdsmileplan.com or call us at 800-277-1112.

You can also enroll at one of our locations.
