I have been with this office for many years and their current top dentist, Dr. Natched is the most thorough, skilled and confidence-inspiring I have encountered during that time. The assistants are likewise very pleasant and competent, as is the wonderful hygienist, Tara. High marks to Terrie and the office staff as well. Good and gentle folks.

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.

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!

I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Fee, Rudy, Natalie, Kanesha, Kim, and the rest of the team. I’ve had everything from cleanings to root canals done at Gentle Dentle and now have an awesome new smile thanks to them. The front office explained the costs in detail before and after each visit so there were no surprises financially, the place is extremely clean, and the dental work has been outstanding.
Larry D.
It was an extremely positive experience. Everyone was friendly and made me feel welcomed. The doctor was wonderful, would definitely recommend this practice to anyone looking for a dentist in the area.

It’s always been an extremely friendly environment.

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!!
