I’ve been going to this Gentle Dental for years (decades?) and the entire staff is excellent. Years ago I switched jobs and moved and tried a new dentist and was dissatisfied, so when I switched jobs and moved again, I looked to see if Dr. Minetola and this Gentle Dental were on the list of my new insurance. They were, so now I drive 4 hours each way to go here!

The Dentist and staff are professional, knowledgeable and kind. I admit to having moderate to high levels of anxiety when visiting the Dentist. My past experiences in Dental offices have been unpleasant to say the least. The folks at Gentle Dental explained the procedures and repeatedly if I was alright with what they were doing. I really appreciated the holistic approach to dentistry that I experienced during my visit. I’m less anxious and confident that they know what they are doing. The equipment is modern. They took xrays, read them while I waited and discussed a plan of action. I would recommend this office to family, friends and colleagues.

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.

Dr. Valentine and Lorie the dental hygienist are great!
Camilla H.
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.
Neal M.
Very good team of people there work together.

Friendly and professional staff
Kamille H.
The dentist and dental technicians were awesome. I have severe gag reflex when doing dental x rays. the dental technician applied a topical solution to help with the x rays. I also am asthmatic and cannot breathe when laying flat. The dentist did everything he could possibly do to make me comfortable.
Kathleen S.
Because the workers are professionals and are interested in the well being of clients. That is why I did not change my dental office , even after Dr. Henrichson retired.

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 […]
