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

Excellent dentist! Cleanest my teeth have ever felt. They remember the smallest details to make you comfortable. New front office has made a huge difference, she is amazing. No more billing concerns. I’m glad I stayed, which I did because the Dentist and her assistant are so good! Thank you for making the thing I dread to do so pleasant!:-)

Excellent dentist who I've been visiting for a few cycles now. My teeth are generally in good shape and they never try to push unnecessary treatment. The entire process is prompt and caring, the dentist and her team continuously check to ensure I'm comfortable and pain free. Good follow-ups afterwards without being unnecessary and excessive. My 2 cents - 5 star dental office!

I've been to other dentists in the area, including Lynn Jones, and this place is exceptionally thorough in the work they do. Dental work I needed was explained to me in plain terms rather than in the technical talk other offices resort to. Costs for the work I need is a fraction of what others charge and the staff is extremely nice. The personnel at this office makes an attempt to get to know their patients instead of trying to cycle through as many as they can. Lastly, Dr. Zainvi shows that she cares about her patients health and offers detailed advice in regards to proper dental care. I'm highly impressed by this office and would recommend others to visit this Gentle Dental.

Polite and professional staff, you can tell they do try to be as gentle as a dentist can be. I went in for two deep cleaning sessions and it was not as bad as i thought it would be. They could use better music though!
