Like my dentist and my hygienist

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.

This dental practice has been amazing. They are professional, compassionate, and knowledgeable. I had not been to the dentist in quite some time, and was nervous about being reprimanded…nope all I got was do not wait this long and here is what needs to get done. They prices were lower than expected and service was fast! I was in a time crunch due to moving in a few months and staff worked hard to get me in for all I needed done! Thank you so much for making this a positive experience!

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 have been a patient of Dr. Minetola for many years. He is a thorough, knowledgeable, and compassionate dentist and I never have less than excellent care from him and his staff. Although this last appointment was routine, Mark has always been available to attend to any dental emergency or concern. I have recommended his services to many of my friends, family and associates.
