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.

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!

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.

Implants are long-term solutions, so you want yours to meet your needs in every way. An experienced implants dentist will ensure that you can eat, talk, and smile with […]
