Gentle Dental Salmon Creek consistently gives me exceptional service! Dr. Yee does an incredible job at identifying problems much better than other dentists. She is fun, personable and simply does an outstanding job at keeping my teeth healthy. Her staff is professional and keeps track of everything. I get great compassionate care and HIGHLY recommend this location. My teen loves coming here too!

Dr. Yee and Ellen are great! I would give 5 stars with no problem. However, recently it seems they changed the accountant staff. There are some issues with communicating with the insurance I believe. Because recently I found that every single time I visited the office, I was over charged, e.g., I was charged for 120 when it should have been 60, etc. I know that the money would still be there in my account and can be used as "credit" next time I visit. I wouldn't mind if it is just one or two times thing. But it happens so frequent now and becomes annoying. Why would I keep credit there when I only need to visit once per several months? I hope they can do something about it. Maybe bill the customers later once the insurance has processed the claim? This is what my medical clinic does. If this is not possible, at least work with insurance more closely and estimate it accurately.

My husband and I recently moved out of the Vancouver area but are more than happy to drive an hour to continue to see Dr. Yee. She's the best. Hands down. She is willing to go the extra mile to make sure that everything goes right from moment you get there. She is passionate about what she does and will make sure that you walk away happy. The dental assistants and the office staff are professional and upbeat. I can't recommend Dr. Yee or this office highly enough. They really take care of you!

Gentle Dental in Salmon Creek is a fantastic dentist to go to. The atmosphere is energetic and comfortable. The ladies at the front desk are extremely helpful and kind. Dr. Yee is very knowledgeable and has done great work for me, whether it be a pulled tooth or fillings. Like most people I don’t like going to the dentist. It has taken me 10 years and some pretty crummy teeth to finally say “I need my smile back”. They have welcomed me in with no judgement and have made me a client for life. Absolutely recommend this dentist!!!

It is pleasure walking into this Gentle Dental office from the moment I walk in and leave. Dr. Yee is very knowledgeable, approachable and does quality work. It is evident that she sincerely cares about her patients. The whole staff is welcoming and wonderful but I feel the need to point out 2. Sarah recently assisted with a procedure and was very thorough and accurate in telling me what to expect. She made sure I was comfortable the entire time and that meant a lot. Sam is a JOY! She is friendly & bright while still maintaining professionalism. She was especially patient and nice to my small kids who typically don’t love dental appointments. Always a fantastic experience from beginning to end at Gentle Dental Salmon Creek!!

I have been seeing Dr. Yee for many years now, and there's no one else I would trust to do any dental work for myself and my family. I recently moved an hour away, and am still making the drive because she's worth it. No one cares more about their patients, and from the moment you first talk to Dr. Yee you'll understand how important it is to her that you get the care you need. And as far as the actual work, she is an artist with her ability to fix and repair almost any damage that may have been done. A few years back I had to see another dentist due to an emergency, and the difference in quality was amazing. I couldn't wait to get back to Dr. Yee to clean up the other dentist's work. She even cleaned up a root canal I had when I was a kid 20 years prior, and now I can't even tell there was ever a problem with the tooth. I rarely take the time to review, much less rave about a business. But again, Dr. Yee is worth it.

I love Dr Yee and her group of wonder women! They are such a great team and work so well with one another. They not only take the time to get to know you but they make you feel like you’re one of them. They really take the time to inform you on your dental hygiene and importance of dental health. They constantly communicate what they’re doing, the effects and benefits of each work. If you want a great vibe and amazing humans...go see Dr Yee.

I have been a patient with Gentle Dental for years now. I have had Dr Yee for a few years now. I recently had some teeth pain. Dr. Yee was able to diagnose 2 cracked teeth and get me right in to get crowns on 2 teeth. I have a oral appliance I use to treat my sleep apnea. She took her time to make sure that it was adjusted just right for my new crowns. She very easy to work with and I would highly recommend going in to see Dr. Yee and her amazing helpful assistant. 5 stars all the way! Thank you for your kindness and help.

Going to the dentist is never on my top 10 favorite things to do on a day off. However, the team here really knocks it out of the park and makes a usual stressful task from "glad this is over with" to "hey, that wasn't bad at all". I think the team's positive attitudes and professionalism really supports this. I enjoy coming here because the team really makes you feel like an old friend popping in to visit. They aren't pushy nor do they lecture you/talk down to you about your oral hygiene like other places. I look forward to many happy returns (not due to bad circumstances) Shout outs to: Dr. Yee, Ellen and the rest of the staff of Gentle Dental Salmon Creek. Thank you always for the wonderful service and dealing with my gross teeth!

Dr Tiffany Yee is like a breath of fresh air. She makes you feel very comfortable, explains procedures explicitly, and boy does she work quickly and efficiently. Her assistant Sarah does a wonderful job as well. Having moved to Vancouver recently, I’m so happy I found her. I actually enjoy going to the dentist now.
