Gentle Dental Somerville Reviews

  • Chuck K

    Gentle Dental Somerville

    I've been to a lot of dentists, and without a doubt, I can say that Gentle Dental in Somerville is the best of the bunch. From the moment I walked in, I was treated with respect and concern. I did not have to wait long to see the dentist. He was very patient and kind and tried hard to minimize my pain with my root canal. This was my first visit, and I have to say, Gentle Dental is the best dental office I have ever been to.

  • Erin P

    Gentle Dental Somerville

    I hadn't been to the dentist in nearly 3 years as the cost of dental checkups, and routine cleanings were a little out of my price range. I knew I needed to find a dentist in Somerville that would accept new patients without insurance. Gentle Dental explained their methods of payment and was able to help me get good quality dental care at a price I could afford. Because I was a new patient, I qualified for one of their special offers of, $57 for the exam, the x-rays and my cleanings and they even sent me home with a dental care plan to help me take my dental needs one phase at a time to help me budget for and afford future care.

    Gentle Dental Somerville

    I met with a great dentist that took digital x-rays of my teeth and then showed me my problem teeth on a large computer screen. He advised that I have a root canal. I am so thankful they offer sedation dentistry, or I probably would not have followed through to schedule an appointment for the following week. I love that I can call Gentle Dental MY dentist! The dental practice is clean; the staff is caring, attentive, and made me feel comfortable. The dentist explained the procedure for dental implants in a way I could understand. He took his time to make sure all my questions were answered. The staff provided me with alternative payment options since my insurance did not cover the procedure. I now have the smile I have always wanted! A wonderful doctor and great staff equal a great experience.
