Very friendly hygenises

Always professional, yet friendly and thorough!

Good service as usual.

My daughter got dental cleaning with Ms.Renee and checkup with DR. Yan Wang. We are very satisfied with their work. One thing made me not satisfied is they changed the hygienist: ex. 2017April, we scheduld to see Ms. Renee, but we saw Jamie. Again, 2017-9-27, we scheduled to see Ms.Renee, but firstly we were told to see Ms. Pat. I felt not satisfied with.this change again, then finnally we saw Ms. Renee. If always change, then schedule is useless.

I chipped a tooth and I was able to see a dentist that morning. THANK YOU

Great job!

I am always very satisfied with the highly qualified attention and friendly reception that I receive at Gentle Dental Associates.


Pleasant treatment, as always.

On this particular visit I stopped by For an emergency tooth extraction, because I was in so much pain. During my visit my usual dental hygienist stopped in just to check up on me. It's nice to be treated like a human being instead of just another client. It really means a lot!

Jaime is a fantastic hygienist very personable and does excellent work... i would recommend her to anyone... Give her a raise :)

You were on time. Hygienist was competent and friendly. Dentist was pleasant and efficient. Thank you!

Dr. very efficient and painless

Dr. Debbie did her usual fine job, however the assistant needs more practice. She was a bit clumsy with the suction and water, scraping my gums and teeth with them several times.

Felt it was a good visit, will better judge when I recv the finished product.

The hygienist was very professional and friendly. She has worked with me before and knows my history. Provides good health advice. Courteous and efficient office staff. The dentist who filled in for my regular dentist was very professional and nice as well.

The staff was very nice and friendly. I am usually very tense at appointments but I was very calm and relaxed. My wife always is right about where she goes and she told me to go to you. Thanks for the very easy going appointment. I have been searching for a good dentist for many years now after my dentist Peter Drescher past away. I think I found one.

Dr. Debby Hwang is always wonderful! The assistant, Christina, was new for me and did a great job.

I am very anxious about dental work, and everyone at the office was fantastic about accommodating that. The procedure was quick and well-done, and my follow-up question was answered quickly by the doctor. It made everything much easier. Thanks!
