Gentle Dental Waltham Reviews

  • Kaylie

    Gentle Dental Waltham

    The receptionist are very nice! The dental office staff genuinely cares about you and are very attentive and knowledgeable. I got my wisdom tooth removed by Dr. Klimashov this morning. He has great bedside manners. Great doctor. He won Boston Magazine Top Dentist. His assistant was so pleasant and helpful. Truly great people, great work all around. I am so happy and grateful I went there. Definitely recommend Gentle Dental Waltham.
