First appointment, scheduled easily over the phone with clear-spoken, receptionist. The hygienist introduced himself and explained the sequence for my appointment. AfterDr. Fletcher came in, introduced himself and went over my Med history, the hygienist executed the X-rays quickly, speaking encouragingly throughout. The digital X-rays appeared on a screen in front of me. Dr. Fletcher returned to review the X-rays and check the fillings and gums in my mouth. His procedure was systemic, and the hygienist documented carefully. Dr. Fletcher showed me the things he saw, pointing to the X-rays. I was taken to the front desk where I received a print-out of the recommended treatments, complete with estimated costs, insurance coverage and estimated cost to me. I was able to schedule the treatment within a few weeks despite the holidays. (The only reason I took off a star, is my preference for completing med history ahead of appointments using a keyboard, instead of trying to remember it on the spot in the waiting room.)

I used to start sweating about 3 days before my dentist appointments as I USED to have an extreme fear of any dental work. Gentle Dental is very, very upbeat and friendly, totally capable and up on the latest techniques and equipment, and above all, they really are GENTLE! For me, no more gas to get through a cleaning, no more sweating, no more cancelling last minute out of fear. I still have my irrational fear, but I know now that when I go to Dr. Fletcher and his staff that I am going to be fine. I cannot recommend the Capital Hill office enough -- from reception to service to special consultations to accounting --it's all professional, friendly, and fair. Update: I recently had gum grafts by Dr. Buddula and his assistant Brian: they are equally professional and very friendly and cordial. Dr. B even gives you his cell number in case of problems: and he answered! He and Brian took great care of me! I'm sticking with Gentle Dental!

Dr Fletcher made my appointment the most positive dentist experience I’ve ever had. I was incredibly nervous to come in for gum cleaning, and am very uneasy around shots, especially in my mouth. Dr Fletcher knew that I was nervous and was so incredibly kind and caring when he was working with me and made me feel like my comfort and experience truly mattered to him. I would 12/10 recommend this office because of him! Thank you so much!

Unfortunately I've been to the dentist many times in my life. Over the last 4 years my teeth have gone from crooked and full of cavities to straight and clean. The ortho team, the dental hygienists, and Dr. Fletcher are all true professionals who always greet you with a smile of their own. Another special shout out goes to Danny, who expertly manages the front desk, and is always a bright spot in my day at the dentist.

I go here for regular dental care and Invisalign orthodontics. The dental care here is above and beyond anything I’ve experienced before. Every time I go for cleaning, they rate the gums by each tooth and put it in my chart. My gum health has improved greatly. I’ve also had tooth whitening there and am very happy with the results. My teeth are much straighter and my bite is better after months of Invisalign treatment. Dr. Fletcher, Dr. Matthys, the dental assistants and all the staff are wonderful.

To call Dr. Fletcher amazing would be an understatement. He is an artist with an acute eye for detail and extremely sympathetic to boot. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone. The staff working here also exceeded my expectations, you can tell they know and trust each other very much, which says a lot about the quality of the people behind the curtains. Tl;dr I always leave with a smile on my face, I'm sure you will too.

Dr. Fletcher is very thorough and caring. I have yet to receive anything less than top notch service from the staff at Gentle Dental and unlike most dental offices they always keep you in the loop re the cost of each procedure while working to keep it to a minimum. I have been a patient at Gentle Dental for over 4 years now and I wouldn't go anywhere else.

Let me just say that my experience here has been amazing! Danny at the front desk is always friendly and willing to answer all your questions. Dr. Tori Matthys is an exceptional orthodontist. She has been very patient, careful and caring. I've worked with her and her team for the last two years and she has made my smile look amazing! I saw Dr. Jeffry Fletcher several times and he was also very professional, careful and understanding. Dr. Tori's Technician - Allia has been awesome! We always have great conversation and she has also been very careful when working with me. If you need any dental work done, this is the place to go!

Been coming here now for 2 years for routine dental care (cleanings, x-rays, etc) and have been very happy with my experience. The staff is friendly, professional and accommodating. (Danny at the front desk is awesome!) I have had the same dental hygienist, Angela, each time and she is great! It is nice to have the continuity. Fortunately have not required any dental procedures, but from what I can tell, the dentists are professional and well trained. Great place!

I always have a great experience when I go to this dentist office. And the dentist himself is absolutely amazing. Another dentist from the East Coast had done some dental work that incorrectly and he fixed it in such a short amount of time with no pain. And now I feel great.
