Gentle Dental Announces New Location in Franklin!

Now Open and Accepting New Patients

May 24, 2019, WALTHAM, MA - Gentle Dental is proud to announce the opening of Gentle Dental Franklin located on 471 West Central Street. This location becomes the 39th Gentle Dental office in New England delivering a great patient experience, offering competitive fees, and offering appointments during convenient evening and Saturday hours.

The new office was designed with patients in mind, providing a calm and relaxing environment where patients can be comfortable while receiving the best quality dental care. With all specialists on staff, doctors work together to provide comprehensive services like root canals, wisdom teeth removal, braces, crowns and bridges, implants, and gum treatment. As with all Gentle Dental’s, the Franklin location is at the forefront of technology; implementing electronic record keeping for a “paperless office” and all digital x-rays that reduce radiation by 80%. Digital x-rays also allow for a clearer, more comprehensive x-ray that benefits both the dentist and patient.

Dr. Francis Guerra, Dental Director of Gentle Dental Franklin, graduated from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine where he earned his DMD. He previously practiced at the Gentle Dental locations in Brockton and Stoughton, MA. “I’m passionate about providing exceptional care through a personalized experience and by developing one-on-one relationships with my patients”, says Dr. Guerra. “By creating individualized treatment plans we can focus on both a patient’s dental and overall health.”

Gentle Dental continues to reduce barriers to dental care by providing a New Patient Offer that allows patients to set a “base line” for dental care. The offer is comprised of an exam with the dentist, all necessary x-rays, a cleaning with the hygienist, and a personalized treatment plan, all for $57. To ensure patients can afford necessary dental care, all Gentle Dental locations accept Essential Dental Plan, a discount dental plan that gives members a significant discount on all dental treatments. Gentle Dental Franklin is partnered with Care Credit financing for patients who qualify or currently hold a Care Credit account.
