Patient Reviews & Testimonials


I have never experienced such sincere and personal attention from a group of healthcare providers. Your genuine interest and concern on our behalf is outstanding to say the least. Thank you to each of you for being wonderful people!


1st class dentistry! Dr. Cynthia Sclater & her staff are all, as good as it gets. All around beautiful place. I highly recommend her.


I had a problem that required immediate attention this week. They fit me in with no problem and worked for almost two and a half hours on me to resolve it. A number of staffers stopped by to say hello and make sure I was comfortable. They patiently suggested several options for a permanent fix and gave me 100% attention even though I was unscheduled that day. I really love all of them for their care and concern.


My whole family goes here. Everybody here is so family oriented and kind-hearted. It is like everyone is family. The dental care is top notch and I would recommend it to anyone. They have now installed tv's in the rooms. It is great to entertain the kids while they get check-ups. Today I was watching a live video of a Bald eagle and it's two young. I really enjoyed that. Anyway thank you for all you do and the great service you provide.


My recent semi-annual check up (no cavities!) was just great, and I always feel like I am visiting family when I go to Gentle Family (hint, hint) Dentistry. There is such a genuine atmosphere of care and comfort from the moment you walk into the reception area, and they see you come in the door and greet you by name. By now I know almost everyone, and they sure know me! Love this place and every single person is truly gentle and kind. I mean, you slide in that dental chair and are pretty much ready for it all! Lots of love floating around that place!

The whole staff at Gentle Dentistry are all so amazing! everyone is always so upbeat and friendly, it is so refreshing! I had to get an upper partial, when my product came in, Dr. Sclater took her time, adjusting it for me, over 30 minutes!This is new experience in my mouth, and so much patience getting it right! I would highly recommend everyone to just stop in the office, and feel how wonderful that someone really cares!!


Very professional staff, everyone was extremely nice and knowledgable.


Not only were everyone courteous, polite, knowledgeable, and very professional, They fit us in on a short notice with a cancellation and we were new patients.. Yaaaa. Myself and my two daughters were very impressed and Would recommend gentle family dentistry to our family, friends, and neighbors. Look forward to our future visits :-)


Each time I have an appointment at Gentle Family Dentistry, I might wait only a couple of minutes before my name is called!


This is a very pleasant and warm practice. All of the staff are incredibly friendly, knowledgable, and accommodating. They answered all of my questions (I am a very inquisitive person). They explained all of the procedures and once they realized I was a "need to know kind of guy", they went out of their way to inform me of all the details. They also spent a lot of time ensuring that my two insurance plans were used to maximum advantage. Great practice, great people, great experience, thank you so very much. See you again soon.


I have been going to GFD since they bought my dentist a few years back and absolutely love the transitions they have made. I get text message reminders and emails where I can put my apt directly into my calender. The staff is spectacular as well. I give them a recommendation anytime!


Working with GFD has been a breeze and both of my girls were impressed.


Today was my first visit at Gentle Family Dentistry and noted the difference the minute I walked through the door. Calm, systematic and professional, although very friendly. The treatment plan was clear and appropriate, charges for the plan were reviewed and I am sure there will be no billing issues as I had previously. They have the ability to make their crowns on site, same day! Very very happy to find them!


Oh my gosh! I've been going to the dentist for years but never have I ever had an experience like I had when I went to Gentle Family Dentistry! From the time I walked through the door everyone, and I do mean everyone, was so pleasant! All their smiles were so genuine! The care they gave me, it was like I've been knowing them and going there for years. Thank you ladies so very much for making my visits, especially my second visit, so comfortable! I have a lifetime dentist!
