Before last week I had only ever gone to the same dentist since I was born. However, since they were only a pediatric dentist I had to stop seeing them once I turned 19 and had to find a new dentist that I could put all my trust into. When I found gentle dental on google, I read all the reviews and decided to give it a shot. I planned an opening patient appointment to see if I liked the office and doctor. The building layout and location is a little goofy and confusing, however that’s an irrelevant detail to how great they turned out to be. I saw Joanna as my assistant when I first got there and she was very kind, listened to why I came, and offered me advice regarding my transition. She did a minor examination and took x-rays. While waiting for Doctor Minetola to come in, she informed me that there was an opening for a cleaning if I wanted (which was amazing and thoughtful of them to inform me). When Doctor Minetola came in, he was just phenomenal. He took the time to explain about the business as a whole, introduce himself, ask about my current life, and dental history. He then did an examination and was just overall very kind and thoughtful. He suggested work to be done that was backed up with proof and professionalism. Overall, he is a fabulous Doctor. Finally, I saw Amy who did my cleaning. As everyone else did, she was sure to introduce herself and ask about my life. She explained everything she was doing and what I needed to do to keep up with my dental health. I would say that Gentle Dental definitely made me feel comfortable in my (forced) switch to a new dentist. I would recommend them to anyone else in my position or just looking for a new dentist. Overall wonderful service, staff, and most of all dentistry work. I will definitely return for all my other dental needs!

The staff at Gentle Dentle remember all my family individually, we have a daughter who is special needs-they were great with her! It’s exactly what a great dentist office should be.

I use to have dental anxiety until I started going to Gentle Dental of Springfield. From the minute I walked in the door until I checked out they were nothing but friendly and professional. I set my appointment up online and did my new patient paperwork online prior to my appointment. The assistants and Dr. Fee were absolutely amazing. After my examination they gave me a detailed breakdown of the work I need to accomplish with no pressure on time frame. I set my appointment for the next day to have a root canal plus I also had a cleaning with Natalie (Dental Hygenist) which I was also pleased with. I highly recommend going to Gentle Dental of Springfield. They took my fear of seeing a dentist away with just one visit. I have my next few appointments set up and I am glad I went there.

Dr. Minatoli (if I am spelling correctly) is absolutely amazing. I had extreme dental pain from two cracked teeth and an abscess. Typically, an appointment is made for a later date after assessing the problem with xrays. He could tell I was in unbearable pain and would not let me leave until he could help me someway. After determining the procedure could take anywhere from 10 min to 2 hours, and still leaving the possibility of needing oral surgery due to the structure of my roots, he promised he would do his best to relieve me of my pain. Time it took? 20 minutes max. I am so impressed with his work. I will continue to come back from here on out. Let me just add, a huge factor I consider in choosing medical/dental facilities is the desk staff along with assistants. They were all incredibly nice and very polite.

Randi M. says,

Being terrified of the dentist, I have never ever said this before, but I had a very pleasant dental experience with Dr. Machlus,, and this was for a root canal,,, not an easy thing to walk away from happy after. It was an emergency visit, the staff was professional, courteous and friendly. There was no wait time and everything was explained to me as we were doing it in a way I could understand. Great chair side manner. Would refer anyone to in a heartbeat. Thank you Dr. Machlus and staff.

Larry D. says,

I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Fee, Rudy, Natalie, Kanesha, Kim, and the rest of the team. I’ve had everything from cleanings to root canals done at Gentle Dentle and now have an awesome new smile thanks to them. The front office explained the costs in detail before and after each visit so there were no surprises financially, the place is extremely clean, and the dental work has been outstanding.

Similarity T. says,

I have nothing bad to say about this place. Everyone was friendly and I felt completely comfortable. Haven’t gone to the dentist in awhile and the worse part was just the anticipation of getting started. Doctor and Hygienist and staff were super!

Donald B. says,

Dr. Machlus, did a great job on my teeth. His craftsmanship speaks for itself. It needs no Introduction. The receptionist and aides were outstanding as well. On top there job…not a moment to spare. 5 ‘s

Lorrie R. says,

Mark Minetola and Michele Ferguson are two of the best dentists in this area by far ! I absolutely love my hygienist, she always does an amazing job. Judy Lees is an awesomely amazing assistant and all of the staff are always so friendly I always walk out the door with a smile on my face.
