Committed to making every patient feel valued and comfortable, our office goes above and beyond to create a relaxing, stress-free environment. Relying on state-of-the-art equipment and the most modern dental techniques, our dentists are able to provide a diverse array of treatments, including preventive treatments and restorative procedures, implants, inlays, onlays, root canals, crowns, bridges, bone augmentation and oral surgery.

We also provide natural-looking dental veneers that can give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of. Whether you have stained teeth, bite issues or misaligned teeth, you can count on the dentists at Gentle Dental for expert treatments that get results.

Because we believe every Seattle resident should have access to affordable dental care, Gentle Dental accepts all major dental insurance plans. New patients can take advantage of special offers that include major discounts on examinations and X-Rays. If you don’t have dental insurance, ask about our Dedicated Dental Plan, which provides reduced rates for diagnostic services, preventative care and necessary dental treatments. We can also provide access to flexible financing options that separate your costs into affordable monthly payments.

Because we know our patients have unforgiving schedules, we offer flexible hours which include holidays, weekends and evenings. This makes it easy for you and your family to get quality dental care without having to miss work, school or important appointments and events.

I have been going to Gentle Dental since Dr. Bond sold his practice. I don’t normally like change, but I am so pleased with the new resident dentist, Dr. Cho, and his great staff. I appreciate his professionalism and the passion he has for dentistry. He spends as much time as is needed to explain each procedure he’s doing so that I’m comfortable with it. It’s a relaxed office environment, too. Dr. Cho works really well with his assistants Aziza and Ellen and is respectful toward them. At the front desk Danny and Amir are very friendly and professional. They make every effort to accommodate my schedule, whether it’s getting me in quickly for an emergency situation or calling me when an appointment opens up that works better for me. I would highly recommend this practice. I really feel like I’ve found a great fit for me!

I don’t give many reviews but I am so thrilled to have found this dental office I am compelled to share it. I previously went to a large office downtown and was never sure they even knew my name. Every person in Gentle Dental WS is superb. The front desk staff, the hygienist, the dentist - are THE NICEST people. Always pleasant, always considerate. I have 3 young kids and they are very considerate of my time - from not having to fill out duplicate paperwork for each kid to doing as much as we can fit into one office visit. The hygienist and the dentist are most importantly thorough and competent, but also kind, and of course gentle :) I can’t recommend them enough. I’ve moved my whole family’s dental care to this practice and we couldn’t be happier.

I went here last week for a filling replacement after my last dentist really messed it up. I was anxious going in, but start to finish I was so well cared for by all the staff. I barely felt the procedure they were such pros. I'm going to say some words I never thought I would say... I had a good trip to the dentist!!
