To Know Us Is To Love Us


Gentle Dental offers skilled dental care in a relaxing, pressure-free setting.

Our dentists, assistants, hygienists and surgeons work hard to create a welcoming environment that makes every patient feel comfortable. They also work closely with patients to identify troublesome dental issues, target effective solutions and explain the methods and need for specific procedures. Our location is also entirely wheelchair-accessible, and we are ideally equipped to serve patients with special needs.

To ensure your dental health, our skilled dental professionals use the latest treatments and technology to provide a complete spectrum of services, including preventive and restorative procedures, crowns and bridges, root canal therapy, inlays and onlays, veneers, teeth whitening treatments and orthodontics. We also offer implants, bone augmentation and oral surgery, along with gentle, compassionate pediatric dentistry for young patients who sometimes feel anxious about visiting the dentist.

To help you maximize affordability, our office accepts nearly every type of dental insurance plan and offers flexible financing options for patients who need more extensive dental treatments, orthodontics or cosmetic procedures, which may be excluded from insurance coverage. If you and your family do not have insurance, you can take advantage of our Gentle Dental Smile Plan, which reduces the cost of many procedures by 20 percent or more.

Since we understand our patients have busy lives, we offer flexible appointments on weekends and holidays. There’s no need to miss work, school or important occasions. Simply talk to our staff and schedule your dental work at a time that fits within your unique schedule.

Conveniently located at the southeast corner of Southeast Geary Street and Santiam Road Southeast, Gentle Dental is proud to offer knowledgeable, compassionate dental care for residents in and around Albany, Oregon. Schedule a consultation, cleaning or treatment with our friendly dental team and get a healthy smile you can be proud of.

“I always wanted a straighter smile, but held off due to costs. When I shared my concerns with my dentist, the team helped me find a cost-effective solution for Invisalign—and whitening, too!”
