I believe I actually found a dentist I will stay with! Great humor and willing to talk about natural remedies. No pressure to schedule for needed treatment (I have experienced high pressured office for somewhat unnecessary procedures in the past) and I believe that the recommendations are necessary and feel informed enough to make financial decisions. Fair pricing as well. It’s not easy to have a good dental experience. Pain happens and it was reduced to minimal amount. Stress shouldn’t happen and it didn’t!

I’m not the biggest fan of Dentist but Dr. Susie is the BEST!! Not only is she an amazing dentist but her empathy and kind “bed side manner” goes above and beyond. I came in with a minor gum issue that was causing discomfort and got a call from Dr Susie this morning just to see how I was doing!! I’d expect that kind of care if I’d gotten a root canal but to receive a call just to see how I was doing ....amazing!! I’m sure she was just being Dr Susie but it felt amazing to get that call!! I’ll be going to see Dr Susie indefinitely!! All health care providers should take note...it’s the little things!! No one wants to be treated like a “number” or just another patient!! Thanks again Dr Susie!! I’m Actually excited to see my dentist next month!! ❤️👍🏾

My experience has been nothing less then stellar. From my first time of meeting the staff & and one of the docs with an infected root canal, then having that root canal redone and recently having a deep cleaning done...all who have been apart of my care from day one in Aug 2019 at the front to the docs, assistants and now recently my hygenist who was very through on calling my cardiologist to make sure i did or did not need meds prior to treatment. If you are looking for complete worry free even in the billing dept go to Gentle Dental every office lives up to the name Gentle Dental. I have a HUGE anxiety of dentist. But my anxiety is minimal while in there office. I dont leave claw marks in there chairs when we are done. Ha ha ha

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.

You can also enroll at one of our locations.
