  • "As you walk in and are happily greeted by reception the first thing you notice is the care that has been taken to create a relaxing and comfortable environment while you wait, albeit a short wait. Perhaps most importantly your cleaning is done with the gentlest touch as every care is taken to avoid discomfort. Dr. Gentry is every bit an educator as she is a highly skilled dentist. While being seen she thoroughly explained, in easily understood terms, what was going on behind my lips and how to best continue good oral hygiene practices. Gentry Dental sets the bar high."
