Had a great experience at Gentle Dental West Seattle! From the moment I entered the clinic (and warmly greeted by receptionist) to the end of my appointment, the staff really took great measures to ensure patient safety and comfort. Erika, my hygienist did a great job of cleaning my teeth (even with some limitations due to Covid protocols) and Dr Cho was very thorough with his examination and did a fantastic job at addressing any concerns. Highly recommended dental practice!

Cannot express how grateful we are for all the care and kindness they have given us. Highly recommend using this team for any dental needs, whether emergencyor otherwise. Gentle dental exceeds our expectations by far.

Not going to lie ... came here because I changed insurance, they accepted my new one, they're walking distance from my place, and saw some good reviews. Good news is, the experience was great. The front office did a great job setting things up, transferring over my records, and taking care of insurance processing. And Dr. Bond was very cool, has 30 years experience, was very professional, and took the time to explain everything and answer any questions. Definitely recommended.

I would like to share my experience with Dr Bond. He is amazing! He saved my tooth from a root canal! The cavity was 0.1mm close to nerve and he managed to successfully clean the cavity and I didn’t need a root canal! It was a miracle! And his hands are so soft that I didn’t feel any pain during almost 2 hour treatment including that one tricky tooth and 4 others! My previous dentist made a root canal to a tooth didn’t even had nerve damage. And I had to had a surgery and cost over $2000 out of pocket that wasn’t even in my coverage. It was a nightmare. Dr Bond is really talented and careful I’m so happy that I read the reviews everywhere and found his good reputation among his patients.

I won't even go into the horrible experiences I have had with dentists (including hours practically standing on my head in a dentist chair with a block in for hours at the University of Washington!!!! ) in my 55 years of life. Dr. Bond and his staff are amazing. Not only do you feel right at home when you walk in but Dr. Bond stays with you through the procedure. He does not lecture or make me feel bad because of the condition of my teeth. He listens and gives great advice. Instead of dreading and having anxiety about my next visit in a few weeks I look forward to it. I am very blessed to have found a dentist I can trust and does amazing work. Beta is a gem too!
