Dr.Garg and team and very helpful and caring. They also sometimes do work the same day which is helpful for when I don’t wanna go back. They have great bed side manners and seem knowledgeable. Definitely a great team that knows how to work well with one another. Front desk lady Rama is also very sweet and does her job very well.

Really impressed with the friendliness of the front desk staff, the quality of the service provided by Dr. Garg and the support from the hygienist. I felt like they truly care and have my comfort in mind. I think they are providing an A+ experience compared to other dentists chairs I've sat in and I hope no one reads this review or its going to be hard for me to get an appointment in the future.

Everyone here is really nice and inviting, front office and assistants are incredible. They make the dentists not a bad place to go to. Really quick to get non routine work in and they don’t pressure you into getting that work done. They also take lot of precaution for pandemic that makes me feel a lot more comfortable . Will be coming back for a long time

I used to dread going to the dentist and am embarrassed to say that I avoided it for several years because of prior experiences. Things caught up to me and I got a really bad toothache around Thanksgiving 3 years ago. I was so fortunate that I was able to get an emergency appointment with Dr.Zainvi.. she saved my holiday and I have been going to see her ever since.. She and her staff are exceptional on all levels from customer service, reliability, knowledge about insurance, etc.. I will never dread going to the dentist again.

I've been seeing dr Zainvi for about 3 years now. She has always been very nice, informative, and thorough. Never had a bad experience and I've had several fillings and twice yearly cleanings. They're very accommodating for my crazy schedule as well :) all of the staff that I've interacted with has been very polite and professional. Would definitely reccomend

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.
