        Situated at 800 NE Tenney Road, Suite B201, Gentle Dental Salmon Creek provides knowledgeable dental care for residents living in and around Vancouver, Washington.

         

        Leveraging the most modern techniques and the latest equipment, our team is able to offer a complete range of expert dental services. Putting patient well-being above all else, we provide preventative treatments, restorative procedures to crowns, root canal therapy, bridges, onlays, inlays, oral surgery and bone augmentation. We also guarantee a calm, stress-free environment that inspires relaxation.

         

        Because we know young patients often feel nervous about dental visits, our office provides gentle pediatric dental care in a kid-friendly setting. We also offer emergency dental services for especially serious or painful problems occurring outside normal business hours. If you are interested in improving the look of your smile, we can provide powerful teeth whitening treatments, traditional braces and Invisalign clear aligners. We also offer modern dental veneers that look just like natural teeth.

         

        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. Visit us for an exam, consultation, cleaning or expert treatment and experience gentle dental care from a skilled team of friendly professionals.

        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!

        Everyone is so nice and I have had two great cleanings with them already. I also like how they track your progress with dental awareness and daily habits of brushing and flossing. You get to see your progress.

        My last dentist experience was a horror story and I procrastinated getting dental care again because I did not trust dentists. I picked Gentle Dental based on the many positive reviews and Dr. Chavez has proved to be capable, professional and compassionate. During a procedure yesterday, she let me know exactly what to expect, and even though it wasn't fun, she told me in advance it wouldn't be fun but it was manageable and necessary; in doing so, she gained my trust and respect.
