    "Just had a cleaning this morning. Everyone wore masks and followed COVID protocols. Megan, who cleaned my teeth, was excellent, very nice, and gentle. The doc was great as well. Definitely would go back here."

    "Due to my past horrible dental experience I had some PTSD when it came to dental care. I put off getting my teeth cleaned for 20 years. My family and my husband comes to Gentle Care and because of their wonderful
                        reviews I decided to get mine done. I did not regret that decision at all, the staff is amazing, my hygienist Megan is the best. She is super gentle, friendly and always put my comfort and care as her top priority.
                        They’ve really got me over my fear of the dentist and they really do provide gentle care. I love that Megan tell me about everything before she does it and explains what I don’t understand. I highly recommend them to anyone that needs dental care."


    "I am terrified of the dentist. I haven’t been to the dentist in 15 years because I WAS so afraid but a friend told me about Gentle Care Dentistry so I made an appointment.... Long story short, best experience I have

                        ever had at the dentist !! He is so gentle and so good I didn’t even feel the numbing part . My wisdom teeth were out before I knew it !! Zero pain !! And the people that work there are awesome !! They are so
                        understanding and compassionate and they know what they are doing !! I can’t say enough good things about my experience and I will never go anywhere else for my dental care !!! "

    "4 months ago I just left from having 3 teeth pulled, and let me tell you, they were so accommodating to me! I was so scared! Melissa, Tiffany, and the dentist were amazing! I’ve been to 3 dentist offices in Lexington
                        and this is by far the best! They have my family’s business going forward."

    Brooklyn Hooten

    "I was terrified of going to the dentist after years of not going. To say this staff is fantastic would be an understatement. They walked me through the entire process and gave me back a smile I can be proud of. They are
                        honest and upfront about cost and procedures. They genuinely want you to have the best smile you can. They care about the health of your teeth. I don’t know what I would do without them. They have earned my business and
