The people who work here are indeed quite gentle! They're kind and thorough in their work. I didn't feel nervous to come here at all after my first visit. If you live near the area they're definitely a go-to!

I was staying in the area for an extended work-from-home visit when my crown cracked and broke. Thankfully, Gentle Dental accepted my insurance and had an appointment available. I went in and got my tooth x-rayed and was told the process to fix it. We had to make a second appointment to remove the crown and get the mold for a new one. This team was so fast and understanding and flexible! Samantha was amazingly wonderful for the entire process from the initial call through completion. I also loved that they didn't pressure me to have more x-rays or work done. They did suggest I do this when I returned home, but it was nice to just have the one problem addressed and taken care of. It was such a great experience - I have literally referred all my PNW friends and family of this particular location. Again, if you want friendly and flexible and understanding, I highly recommend Gentle Dental!!

Staff was very friendly and accommodating to my daughter who was very nervous for her appointment. Samantha at the front desk was very nice and provided new patient paperwork ahead of appointment. She also gave my daughter a toy to play with while we waited for the doctor to help keep her mind off of things. My daughters favorite part aside from how friendly everyone was, is that the doctor and assistant took the time to explain what was going to happen and what steps where happening as things progressed.

I have had the same dentist for years, after he retired a new one took his place... after that things were never the same and I felt like a transactional figure to that dentist. I went on a search to have find myself a new dentist. I came here and have the amazing Dr. Garg as my Dentist and I couldn’t be happier. She is so kind, patient and caring. I 💯% recommend her and her office. Her staff is absolutely awesome, kind warm and welcoming as well. I am so happy to experience another Dentist that cares for their patients. Thank you Dr. Garg and Samantha for being so great!

Been over a year since I had a cleaning/check up and my insurance changed so I was assigned to this office. I live in Seattle and this office is rather far out of the way for me, however, I'm glad I stuck with Gentle Dentle Coal Creek. Dr. Garg and her staff are very nice and thorough. I had everything I needed to know prior to my appt., and my interaction with other staff (Sam and Sarah) was pleasant, warm and comfortable. Covid screening and safety measures were clear and evident in their office, which helped me feel at ease in light of the pandemic. (We have high risk family members, so it's a big deal.) Dr Garg was great, knowledgable and provided excellent care for my appointment.

Samantha and staff are very accommodating. This is my new dentist after moving to Newcastle and I love them. If you're looking for a dentist in the Coal Creek area stop by and give them a shout. I'm having shoulder surgery tomorrow and they were so nice to buy me a card and a gift. When do you ever see that from a dental office?

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
