I’ve been going to Gentle Dental for several years now. Back in April I took a fall down some concrete steps, leaving some severe trauma to my mouth and me without two front teeth. Dr. Nached and his team were so wonderful to me and really made me feel comfortable as I continuously cried through my visits. Terri, the office manager, is fabulous and has helped accommodate my needs and I couldn’t be more grateful to the entire office staff! I am so happy with my new teeth and although I wish I didn’t have to go through the experience, I’m very lucky I had this dentist to help me.

Office staff is friendly and efficient. And Dr. Machlus and his team make me feel comfortable and are friendly, professional, empathic, knowledgeable, and make my visits pleasant (not a fan of the dentist in general). Love that they are able to fit you in quickly with emergencies & follow up for cavities found during routine cleanings. Very happy with the service- 5 stars!!
Michele S.
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.
Randi M.

9 Questions to Ask: Implants Dentist Philly Trusts
Finding the best affordable dentist to place your implants can be a challenge. Many dental care providers are qualified to place implants, but they’re not all equally skilled. Some attained their knowledge and experience in a weekend class or a short training program. Others have extensive hands-on experience under their belts. 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 […]
