Liz was a new hygienist to the company and they informed me that she would be cleaning my teeth and that Amy was mentoring/training her that day. They always do an amazing job starting with the front (Tara) always greeting me with a hello, I usually see Amy - but Liz was great today and then Dr Kinney did a thorough exam and explained her findings!

Amy and Dr. Kinney did an amazing job with our three year old's dental check-up! I was worried because of his age he would have a hard time but we had a really positive experience and are so glad to have such a wonderful dental healthcare provider! We recommend them to anyone looking for a positive family dentist. It is so important to have positive experiences with the dentist for small children so they continue to be engaged in oral health for the future.

I haven't been to the dentist in years out of fear and past bad experiences, but I had a dental emergency and had to go somewhere. Dr. Kinney not only fixed the problem without judgement but put my mind at ease and made the experience as painless as possible. I went back for a cleaning and x-rays and had another positive experience. I've officially found a new dentist and a new clinic. Thank you to everyone on the team.

It truly was the most gentle dental experience I've ever had. In the past I've visited dentists that were to rough, sloppy with novacaine placement, or constantly trying to sell unneeded procedures, but Dr. Kinney and the rest of the staff are so nice and help me make informed decisions about my care, keeping cost in mind.

I appreciate how warm the staff always are at Gentle Dentistry. The dental staff try to make sure that I am at ease, and are always singing or joking but still professional, and the front desk gals are likewise warm and pleasant to work with. They obviously strive to provide the best care - even had me come back right away for free to buff out a "high" spot on a recent filling when they called to check on me after my visit!

Excellent experience! Very short wait and my checkup/cleaning went very fast. Staff are friendly and efficient.

I have a fear of going to the dentist and an abject need to do so. How to I deal with this contradiction? I stay away as long as possible and hope for the best. Well, it's never the best; it just gets worse. And so I appreciate the professionalism, the welcoming spirit, the non-judgmental atmosphere here. They calm my fears, give me the help I need and send me with on my way with smiles all around.

This is a friendly office from the front desk staff to the dental hygienist to the dentist herself. They always greet me by name and apologize if they are running late. It is a pleasure coming for dental work here. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a new dentist.

I needed a root canal and the dentist asked me about my pain level which was at 7. When I asked about prescription pain meds she talked over me and just told me to take Tylenol. When I tried to tell her that that is upsetting my stomach, she still talked over me and left the exam room. I will be searching for another dentist next year it's not like I have a new issue to get pain meds and I as treated as such

I don't like going to the dentist and usually dread it. The people were wonderful and I loved the dentist. She was very pleasant and personable.

I appreciate greatly the fact that the hygienist was able to remove all the stains from my front teeth (I drink a lot of coffee and those stains were becoming ugly). That's the first time my teeth have looked so clean, thank you! (Chris Dale)

Thank you, Dr. Sim, Jenna and the girls at the front desk. You all know just how much you have impacted my life, and I am forever grateful. My veneers are wonderful and Dr. Sim and Jenna did absolutely beautiful work. I just can't stop smiling!!

Everyone starting from the front desk on, has a very caring attitude. If every visit goes as well as my past visit I will be more than satisfied.

Great staff and dentists! Timeley and professional. One constructive piece of feedback I have is to warn adult patients ahead of time that the fluoride varnish may have an additional fee outside of that covered by insurance BEFORE they decide whether or not to have it applied.

Terry was wonderful. I loved the way she did my dental cleaning. One of my best experiences so far.
Mar 31, 2016
Everyone was great with my son for his first visit to the dentist - at first he was scared but by the end he loved it!

I have always had good experiences at Gentle Dentistry and have referred family and friends who are seeking care in the area.
Mar 17, 2016
Gentle Dentistry has always been a very good place to go; they've done a lot of work for me over the years and they have always been professional, approachable, friendly and honest. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of an excellent dental office.

Great explanation of tooth issues, and very honest.
Feb 27, 2016
Dr. Sim and his Dental Hygentist (sorry can't remember her name), are wonderful. I'm a big baby when it comes to the dentist/my teeth, and they are very patient and sensitive. I have nothing but good things to say about Gentle Dentistry.
Feb 26, 2016
Everyone was welcoming, warm, and friendly. Explained procedures so I could understand. Told me expenses before they started so there was no surprises.
Feb 11, 2016
it was a verygood experince
Feb 7, 2016
I was a little frustrated by how long I had to wait. I had a morning appointment and couldn't believe that the office could be so far behind so early in the day.
Jan 26, 2016
Great Experience with Dr. Sim I waited until my second visit to write this review. I had to have 3 fillings. Dr. Sim and the Dental Hygienist were very patient, kind and comforting to me as I was quite anxious because I have such sensitive teeth. I feel they did a great job and really worked as a team. I left feeling they stand up to their name, "Gentle Dentistry". Thanks Dr. Sim and sorry I am blanking on my hygienists name. She's from your Coon Rapids location.

I have my teeth cleaned every 6 months. I have been putting off some extra work. I finally had it done this past week. glad I did have it done. Dr. Sims likes my jokes.
Dec 2, 2015
I have been going to Gentle Dentistry for three years now. Dr. Simms is great and so is the whole staff. I am always greeted with a smile. Oh, I never feel my Novocaine shot.

Each time I go for services, I'm happy with all aspects of how they do business. Excellent people, excellent treatment.

I was greeted promptly upon arrival. Amy did a wonderful (pain-free) job cleaning my teeth & Dr. Sim did his exam and discussed what our "plan" would be going forward. I am very pleased.
