    Patient Reviews


    • Juan Lewis
      I began going to Gentle Dentist in 2022, from the very first time I went there I was happy! Not only with staff and the professional atmosphere but also with knowledge they had about various subject matters. Such as insurance and coverage. Any answers they didn’t have they research and found. They are friendly,they acknowledged myself and other patients as we walked in the door. Knowing who were, and signing us in without asking for names and such. Upfront Bree and Krista are TRULY awesome and polite. Dr Parker were was the same. The staff in the back were awesome as well. I really would recommend them to anyone.

      The people here are so kind! I had a call about a family emergency in the middle of getting a cavity filled and they stayed open late so I could hurry and leave to take care of things then come back. Outstanding service.
