I visited Gentle Dental to discuss my dental issues, as a possible new patient. Dr. Shin discussed possible options, a root canal, and I was to notify him of my decision after seeing a periodontist, the next week. However, before that appointment, my realized my jaw was swollen and I called Gentle Dental, made an appointment to extract the infected tooth as soon as the swelling went down. He prescribed antibiotics for me, the swelling went down in 3 days, and I went in for the extraction. I was in and out of the office in 30 minutes, no pain, some instructions to follow, and I went on with my day. Two thumbs up, and another great dental experience. I found this to be a professional and caring office. Thank you to Dr. Shin and his great staff.
