At Gentle Dental Salmon Creek, we believe every resident of Vancouver should have access to top-quality dental care. That’s why we accept all the major dental insurance plans. For patients without insurance, we also offer a Dedicated Dental Plan, which provides access to major discounts for preventative dental care, most diagnostic services and necessary dental treatments. If you need restorative treatment or a cosmetic procedure not covered by insurance, we can help you acquire flexible financing and new patient discounts, which include lower rates on X-rays and exams. 

 

Putting patient well-being above all else, our office works hard to build life-long relationships while providing the highest quality of dental care.

I had my wisdom teeth pulled by Dr. George at the Gentle Dental Salmon Creek office recently. I was very impressed by her knowledge, she was patient throughout the whole process, answered all my questions respectfully and was very personable, yet professional. She made me feel very comfortable throughout the entire process. We used local anesthesia so I was awake the whole time and she was amazing with me. I had very little swelling and didn't need heavy pain meds in recovery. I've seen her a few times and have brought my kids to her. She's amazing with kids and they love her. I've even set up an appointment for my husband to meet with her. Basically, she is amazing, we love her, and I'm so glad we found her.

I've been to my fair handful of dental offices, and this team was BY FAR the most professional and the most personable. Dr. Alysa George is fantastic, not only in the aforementioned attributes, but also in her clear and succinct explanation of what issues are present, the next steps in terms of treatment planning, and she is very competent and thorough with with treatment itself! Many dental offices, at least from my experience and that of others, tend to illicit discomfort and even fear, but Dr. George and her team were very comforting and competent, which made the whole experience such that I have no fear or discomfort with going back. I'm definitely gonna stick with them for the long-term!

After moving up here for college, I was hesitant to find another dentist in the area BUT I have been to this office three times now and they never fail to make me comfortable and calm during each and every visit. Dr. Yee and her staff are some of the best at what they do and always make sure to check in on you throughout your dental work. :) Which is why despite living in the Portland area, I will continue going up to Vancouver for all my dental needs !

From the moment you walk in the staff is friendly and professional. I love my Dental Assistant Ronda she puts me at ease with her smile and she is the most efficient Dental Assistant I’ve ever had. Dr. Chavez has a calming demeanor and is so good at listening and so gentle and caring. This comes from someone with an extreme phobia of the Dentist. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

The Smile Plan is effective immediately and there are no claim forms to fill out and no maximums. Seniors 62 and older receive additional discounts on enrollment fees and parents can keep children on their family plan until age 26.

Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for everyone to obtain quality dental care at an affordable price.
