I’ve been coming to Gentle Dental for several years and the staff and service are fantastic.
Lynda S.
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.

Vera is a great dental hygienist. She makes me feel comfortable and makes my visit go quickly and smoothly. Dr. Machlus is a great dentist, too. Overall, I always have a good experience when going to their office.

Dr. Fergusen, Joanne, and the staff were patient, understanding to my needs, and professional. I would recommend anyone to them because they have great social skills.

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!
