Well, third time with Gentle Dental and as expected, it was a very smooth experience! Dr. Nordahl is always personable and she exudes such calming confidence that sitting in that chair, you can’t help but be put to ease! Also, too many to name, but the entire staff is very engaging and answers all questions and makes recommendations which really leave a good impression as well.

Needed an extraction that previous dentist didn't schedule. Walked into Gentle Dental about 3:30pm, they said, "we have time today!" By 6pm, the tooth remnant was gone . Professional, polite, and, well - gentle. Or as gentle as an extraction can be. I scheduled further work.

Wow! Two root canals on a Friday and build ups done the following Tuesday and never once throughout the entire procedures did I have any pain or discomfort. Dr Bassili was remarkable for my root canals and Dr Nordahl was fast and amazing for my build ups. “TT”, Emilee and Lauren were all nice, funny and put me at ease instantly!

Was extremely worried about having a crown replaced - last tooth on the top, hard to reach. They all did a wonderful job of making me comfortable and easing my worry - didn't even feel the shot! The staff are always helpful, courteous, prompt and professional. I always know what to expect financially before the visit and appreciate all the recommendations for good care of my teeth. All the prep work for the crown was done so well hardly any adjustments needed to be made. It was installed and I was out the door in less then 30 min. with no numbing or pain. Even though working on teeth is science it is also part artistry and they do a wonderful job of bringing both together so my mouth is healthy, pain free, functional and looking good!

I’ve been coming to see Dr. Nordahl for 10 yrs now. Consistently friendly, and when it come to knowing the trade of making a smile look good.... No one does it better. Oh and over the years the staff has switched out, but you know what? They’ve always been top notch! Thank you for taking care of me and my family. Sincerely, One Happy Smile!

Mariya the hygienist is very nice and gentle on my teeth and gums. She doesn't yank your mouth open or scrape your gums like other hygienists. Doctor Nordahl does great and painless fillings. She is fast and efficient and I haven't had any issues with any of my work. I like that she is conservative and doesn't tell me to do treatments that are unnecessary. Lauren is always very friendly and helpful so are the other assistants. The office manager is knowledgeable and very nice and is always so helpful. Overall this office is a huge win. They treat all their patients like family, and welcome everyone with open arms.

This is the greatest dental office I've ever been to. Going there is better than all the fireworks on the 4th of July. The office manager is the greatest in the world. The whole staff is cream of the crop, top notch. Dr. Nordahl is so efficient and gental that I routinely fall asleep during root-canals. The treatment I get is greater than riding a flying tiger through a thunderstorm while rescuing kittens.
