Gentle Dental Chelmsford Reviews

  • Tracey

    Gentle Dental Chelmsford

    I had a broken tooth that was absolutely killing me. I called the day before Thanksgiving and they immediately squeezed me in. Dr. Shelby Cerulli was so amazing to me, she not only got me out of pain but also saved my tooth. Dr. Cerulli and Pragati made it a fun experience. I’d give them 10 stars if possible. I’ve been here twice over 15 years and they’ve been nothing but amazing! I would send anyone here including my five year old son. Thank you so much for taking such good care of me!

    Both my husband and I have been going to the dentist at Gentle Dental for over 10 years. We see Sejal and she does a wonderful job. I also had a dental crown placed last year by Dr. Desai. She is simply the best!! Very professional, took time to explain the procedure and she made me feel so comfortable. Thank you Gentle Dental!

    Dr Desai is the best dentist and her dental assistant Mary is so caring and helpful. Maria has helped me and is always very understanding. They treat you like family. I also go to Lisa for my cleanings and she has become a very good friend to me. I have been going to Gentle Dental Chelmsford for over 26 yrs and wouldn't go anywhere else!

  • Fatima

    Gentle Dental Chelmsford

    I have been a patient of Dr. Desai for years now and I am very satisfied with the dental care provided by her and her team. I am not an easy patient as through the years I have been postponing oral care and I was always afraid of dentists, their price tag and their judgment. But since I started going to Gentle Dental, Dr. Desai gradually made me feel comfortable, safe, able to afford the treatment, and confident I could smile again. She gives me detailed information about every dental procedure and is very patient with me. I always receive follow up calls to see how I am feeling after a procedure and it makes me feel valued and cared for as a patient. The front desk team is very nice and accommodating, especially if I have any emergencies. I have had oral surgery, root canals, crowns and partials done and so far everything is working great. I don't usually write reviews but I imagine it could be useful to other people like me out there who might be looking for an experienced dentist and a great new smile.
