Gentle Dental Cambridge Reviews

  • Jay

    Gentle Dental Cambridge

    The receptionist is one of the best that works at Gentle Dental. The entire staff from the hygienists to the doctors have treated me with respect and utmost care. I’ve been a patient since 1999 which tells you my loyalty. Because they have taught me how to care for my gums and teeth, I have not had any major dental issues. The office environment is friendly and supportive and I highly recommend using them for your family dentistry as I do. They are truly Gentle... 

  • Fanah

    Gentle Dental Cambridge

    I don't usually write reviews, but the staff at Gentle Dental Cambridge are outstanding. As a nurse and a long-time customer - I have seen the consistent excellent customer service - in making the patient feel welcome and addressing every issue promptly with care. I think Dr. P. van de Rydt's excellence is rare to find, you just can’t help it but notice a skill that has been honed over many years. The rest of the staff excel at their jobs and go above and beyond.

    Gentle Dental Cambridge

    I'm very happy with my new dentist at Gentle Dental Cambridge in Porter Square. Very thorough evaluation at the first visit and he did a great job with repairs the following appointment. Also, they've always been on time.

  • Laura

    Gentle Dental Cambridge

    I would definitely recommend my experience at Gentle Dental Cambridge in Porter Square. A truly wonderful team of talented people! And they are paired with the most up-to-date technology. My experience was terrific! I needed a root canal and crowns in addition to a cavity filling. I was in safe hands! From start to finish, I was treated well and the procedures were completed in a timely manner.
