"Just went for my sons first ever visit to the dentist and my friend had recommended this location to us. Went there and it was absolutely wonderful. Everyone was super friendly and my son had a great time. The play area, known as the "Smile Zone" is wonderful for relaxing kids before they have to see the dentist. Then the staff there is super nice and friendly which makes it even better for the kids. Definitely going to continue to take my son there!"Jenna H.

Extremely happy with my decision to take my children here thank you! We are here to stay!!!"Queen P.
"I love the facility, the people, and the caliber of care of Gentle Smiles. My daughter went from scared of the dentist to excited to go, and that is after this team had to spend extra time cleaning her teeth from the years of build-up that our previous dentist left. I love that they allow you to stay with your child during dental work, should you desire to. I now carry Gentle Smiles business cards with me to give to people I know."Mary M.
