Very professionally run office,my appointment was on time and the staff extremely helpful. I met Denise as I entered, she was so pleasant and courteous and a joy to talk with. Any fears of being in a dentist office quickly dissipated. Dr. Valentine’s quick deductions of my oral problems,easy explanation about my treatment plan and the actual dental work on me was of the highest order. Thank you so much Gentle Dental of Westchester.

My appointment was on a Saturday and even though it was, I still feel like the whole practice was courteous of my time. The male dental assistant that originally got me settled and put the topical numbing on my gums is great! A real asset to your team.

The dental hygienists, doctors, and staff are all very friendly and are helpful in calming my anxiety. When they are working on my teeth, they are gentle and understanding when I tell them I need a break and I always leave feeling confident in their work.

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!

I gave this score because I came in for an extraction, was scared to death, and I was made to feel very relaxed by both the Dr and his assistant. Thank you too much, I’m healing well and will be in again to get more teeth healed and cleaned. Have a beautiful day. Linda

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.
