I do not recommend this dentist to anyone.the staff is rude and they do work that doesn't need to be done. I recommend getting a second opinion of else ur whole mouth might need work. I had 2 opinions and one was far different than the other.. The staff especially Adrianna is very rude. When I asked for copies of my xrays they refused to give them to me. He tried to fill all kinds of my teeth saying I had all kinds of cavities but the other dentist said I did not. Also medi-cal pays for white fillings call medi-cal and ask them and why does he not provide them for medi-cal patients. And again the staff is super rude. I was much happier when I went to the other dentist office. I will be reporting them to the dental association and to medi-cal.

Gentle Dental
We got dental insurance through Kaiser and selected Gentloe Dental in Rosedale for our dentist. We got x-rays and were told we got two cleanings a year. On our first appointment, thinking we were going to get our free cleaning, they put us each in a dental chair and said they were going to do a "deep cleaning" on our teeth. I had no prior knowledge of needing a "deep cleaning" and declined, but my husband did it. When he was finished they charged him $860.00. I immediately cancelled the so called "dental insurance." and went to Smile Dental, just down the street from my house. My cleaning cost $61.00. We were scammed by Gentle Dental and I resent it very much.

I absolutely HATE going to the dentist! That said, I actually enjoy parts of my visits to Adept Dental. They are very professional and do whatever it takes to make me comfortable and kind of relaxed. Everyone I come into contact with at Adept are just really friendly and kind. I go every 6 months and that's saying a lot as I stress out when I go! They make it easy on me and so I keep going. My teeth are much happier too!!

I love this office!!! I have always been terrified of going to the dentist. The staff were awesome though!!! They really helped me work through my fear and made me feel calm and safe. The dentist did such an amazing job delivering some not so happy news and then extracting a very difficult tooth!!! I will be bringing my whole family here!!! I'm no longer scared of the dentist!

G Street Family Dentistry
Best experience I have ever had with a Dentist. She was the most kind person you could ever ask for. I had a wisdom tooth extracted over 10 years ago by another Dentist and it was horrible I had to have my jaw bone cut open and scraped, so I have held off going back. Being in severe pain over the last few months leaving work due to pain. Started off at western dental. After 2 months they never fixed my pain I spent 1200 dollars on fancy tooth brushes they told me I needed and cleanings. They sent an emergency referral for an oral surgeon, 6 weeks later said it was not covered by my insurance. I called the Insurance and yes it is covered so the insurance lady pulled me from Western dental due to the amount of time I had been left in pain and an appointment was made to G street family dentistry. Following day to my appointment, was greeted by the receptionist and the Dr. Right away the Dr. Asked me what was going on she listened to me and was concerned about my pain. She assured me she would help me and take care of my pain. Dental assistant was friendly and kind made me feel comfortable taking her time with my x-rays. Dr. Came right in and was very sympathetic to my situation. She said it has to come out I was shaking in fear, explained my previous experience she calmed me. I was numbed with topical ointment first, gently numbed me with the injection waited,came back to finish I couldn't even feel the needle when she came back I braced myself for the poke but nothing.She began the extraction, again braced myself waiting for the pain I started moaning in anticipation of the pain to come, she stopped and asked me if I was okay waited for me to gather myself, she began again explaining every step then she stopped, asked what was wrong she said it was done I was in shock I felt nothing.I began to cry, she comforted me with her kind words I couldn't believe it. She was amazing, gentle and kind. I couldn't ask for anything better then the care and service I received.

Tips & Advices
  • Pick Your Plan: Most people purchase three main varieties, usually through their employers.
    • An indemnity or fee-for-service plan means you'll have to pay for annual deductibles and co-insurance payments out of pocket.
    • A preferred provider organization is less costly, and you choose from a network of dentists. However, PPOs have some limitations and accompanying deductibles.
    • A dental health maintenance organization plan limits you to just a few choices of dentists, and one doctor handles all of your oral care needs. However, these HMO are usually much less costly.
  • PPO plans and dental HMOs work with only a select number of doctors. While that usually means fewer costs, it also means you have less choice in the dentist who can treat you Before purchasing the plan, you'll receive a list of dentists in each network. From there, you can then pick a plan with doctors who meet your standards and requirements.
  • When picking a plan, you need to look at just how much you'll pay for each and every service. For instance, some plans won't cover your fillings or X-rays, while others may charge more or less for a crown or tooth extraction. You don't want to be caught off-guard by unforeseen charges.
  • If you're truly comfortable with a dentist and you feel he or she can be an ally in your ongoing oral care regimen, then consider signing a plan to just keep that dentist available. That means potentially deal with costs and other insurance-related factors that you might have wanted to. If need be, you might be able to work with the dentist's office to address some of the plan-specific concerns.
  • Ask family, friends or colleagues for recommendations. They will be able to provide details about a dentist's demeanor, operating style and approach to patient care
  • Meet with any prospective dentists to ask about what treatments they perform most often, procedures they're not as familiar with, what accreditation they have or any organizations they belong to and how their offices handles insurance and payments.
  • Consider driving distance, location and office hours.
  • Check With Your State Board: The state board can outline what requirements your dentist must meet and offer information about any discrepancies in the their background and if he or she has faced any disciplinary actions.
  • Remember Your Angles - When brushing your teeth, always place the brush at a 45-degree angle..
  • Don't Forget the Tongue – Your tongue is the largest source of bacteria. Brush it front to back and don't forget the sides.
  • Floss Everyday - Each time you floss, have at least 18 inches of floss available. For optimal control, hold the floss between your thumbs and forefingers.
  • Watch What You Eat - Sugar, alcohol and coffee contain phosphorus. While some can prove beneficial, too much of this chemical can eat away at your teeth and gums.
  • Keep in Mind the Mouthwash - Mouthwash can be helpful if used to supplement proper brushing and flossing. Most mouthwash brands contain chlorine dioxide, a chemical that targets the majority of oral bacterial strains.
Yellow teeth are the result of a number of bad habits, mainly smoking, drinking too much coffee and improper nutrition. Many dentists will treat with a whitening procedure.
These painful bumps are the result of irritation to the soft tissue of your mouth. These sores can make brushing almost impossible. There are a number of different causes for sores, including anemia or a vitamin B-12 deficiency. Your doctor will have to examine the bump, find its cause and then develop a specific treatment plan, including the use of corticosteroids to reduce inflammation or antimicrobial mouthwash.
