Gentle Dental of Porter Square in Cambridge, MA is a solid place to have dental work done. They are timely and courteous, but most importantly, they provide sound dental advice and are efficient in treatment suggestions and plans. I feel confident that I am getting the care I need and that their recommendations are in my best interest. Everyone I have worked with has been friendly and showed genuine interest in my comfort and well-being. The only down-side is that they don't seem to do cleanings and exams on the same visit so it is a bit inconvenient.

I have been seen at Gentle Dental twice, both times for emergencies.

The dentists and staff are friendly and professional. They saw me very quickly, even though I did not have an appointment. The work they did was excellent, and the prices were very reasonable.

I highly recommend this dental office.

Dr. van de Rydt has been very helpful throughout the entire process. I had a tooth extracted and a bridge/crown done. Each step has been pleasant and very convenient. Everything has gone as planned. Ellen, the dental assistant has also been great and a true pleasure to see each visit.

Dental procedures are one of my least favorite things. To make the matter worst, I have often been traveling, hence changing dentists without the benefit of enough time to trust any practices. My first visit at Gentle Dental was rather encouraging. The new enrollment visit was thorough with great attention to details. Much time was spent discussing the upcoming procedures.

After a long absence from going to the dentist, I scheduled an appointment here. I was terribly anxious, but heard great things about this practice. I was amazingly surprised by all employees here. Everyone was so nice and understanding, I didn't get lectured, and they immediately put me at ease. They were straight forward about our game plan to get me back on track and made things very easy to understand. I will be a patient at this office for a very long time.

Gentle Dental is centrally located using bus or T or car. Desk staff is competent and courteous. Appointments are easy to get on short notice. The hygienist was careful and thorough and put me at ease. The price structure of services is reasonable. I definitely plan to return for further consultation and for followup work.

The staff of Gentle Dental Cambridge is extremely courteous and professional. The administrative staff in the front was very friendly, answering all my questions and offering advice. The dental hygienists did their job with great efficiency. And the dentist himself was very forthright and empathetic...not traits you always find in doctors. I can honestly say I enjoyed a visit to the dentist now.

NB: this review is only about the first examination, not about any treatments because I have not had that so far.

I made an appointment at Gentle Dental because of their super cheap new-patient offer ($57 for cleaning, exam, Xrays). I had read the Yelp reviews, which are pretty awful, so I did not have high expectations, but I though I may have a cavity and just wanted to have someone look at that. So far I have only had the exam & Xrays, so my 5-stars only apply to my experience with the exam & dentist I saw.
Review:
I called, and could get an appointment within a week, that already I think is great. I had an early morning appointment, and the waiting time was under 15 min (although I believe they make you come earlier for the paperwork).
Overall, the assistant that took my Xrays was super nice. Very friendly lady, shame I forgot her name. My dentist was Dr. B. Prindiville. This was my first experience with a US dentist, so I can only compare it with the experiences I have had in the Netherlands. Dr Prindiville was very nice, and did exactly the same as a Dutch dentist would have done. He checked my mouth, and there was indeed a cavity under an old filling, just as i expected. I still have to come back for the cleaning & to get the cavity filled (for a very reasonable price; I believe $150), so I cannot review the real 'treatment'. But overall, my first experience of the exam was very positive. Nice assistant, nice dentist (seemed knowledgeable), cheap.

I have had several good experiences in Gentle Dental Cambridge including teeth checkups, teeth cleaning and most recently wisdom teeth removal. I am very anxious about dental treatments and had to do wisdom teeth removal. Dr. Lane VandeRydt was very patient, professional and reassuring. He did a quick, and clean removal of two wisdom teeth. I was very relieved and grateful for the excellent results. Thank you!

Excellent dental care without anxiety or pain! Dr. David Goldberg and the staff of dental hygenists at this Porter Square Gentle Dental location are pleasant, professional, and very conscientious. They always explain the procedures they are performing and their recommendations. I have been to other dentists where I felt they were trying to sell me unneeded services, but that has never been an issue here. Prices are reasonable. In fact, due to a repaired heart murmur, I've decided to pay for two additional cleanings each year out-of-pocket.
I always leave my appointment feeling very satisfied with their work. I have used Gentle Dental in Waltham and Burlington too (because I have changed job locations several times). The staff at each office has made it easy to transfer my files. At Cambridge they are very professional and accomodating. Now, after every dental appointment I walk around with a big smile because I know that my teeth and gums are healthy and look great.

While working and living in the city of Boston, I used to work out at the Bally's in Porter Square, Cambridge. I knew I needed some dental work, but was never a big fan. I saw a Gentle Dental in the area, so stopped in one day. After a brief consultation, they gave me the low-down on what I needed to get my teeth back to healthy. The team, led by Dr. Van de Rydt, explained everything thoroughly, worked with my dental insurance and set me up on a plan to get my mouth (teeth and gums) back to where it should have been the entire time (I do love my sweets). I then moved out of the city and ignored my teeth for many years. Just by coincidence, Dr. Van de Rydt came in to dine at a restaurant I manage. He asked how I was, as he genuinely cares about his clients. The next week, I made an appointment with him, as he and his team always made me feel comfortable. I went in later that week and he explained to me what had to be done, as I ignored by mouth for many years before this visit. I have been in two more times since and I can proudly and honestly say that I have the greatest dentist. Truly caring and helping their clients, not only explaining what they need, but helping them with their insurance providers should be every denist's priority. I can sincerely say that most densists will not spend that extra time with their clients.......Dr. Van de Rydt and his team do and what I have seen, they care about all of their clients. My mouth is back to recovering and owe it all to him and his team. Thank you Dr. Van de Rydt and your entire team!

Gentle Dental Cambridge: very knowledgeable and thorough. by BL Dr. Van De Rydt is very knowledgeable and takes the time to explain the treatment options. He understands that different people will make different choices (one person might want the least expensive option, another the longest lasting, another the most natural) and he is supportive no matter what. I've been going there for 10 years and I always feel well taken care of. All the hygienists have been friendly and pleasant too. Highly recommended.

Dr. van de Rydt was very thorough and informative, including the treatment options and helping me to make an informed decisions, even at the time of emergency visit. I broke my crown 3 days after I started a new job at a new city, and the office immediately scheduled my visit the very next day. Now I am planning to take care of the old dental work done many years ago, and discussing long term dental treatment plans. Overall, my experience at this clinic is far superior than most dental clinics, and I recommend to anyone who had bad dental work experiences.

Dr. Van De Rydt was very personable, and explained his examination in a detailed yet understandable way;. Seri, the woman who took my x-rays and pictures, was also very sweet and made me feel comfortable. And Terri the receptionist was enthusiastic and welcoming and helped me make further appointments that work around my schedule. I'm going back tomorrow for cleaning and I'm going to encourage my wife to also make the switch to Gentle Dental.

I was horrified to find that 25 years after having the cement of my braces taken off, the enamel was broken off the root of 5 or 6 teeth. I was in pain. Iwent to my local Gentle Dental, and Dr. Xie recognized the problem and did a special kind of filling that protects the healthy root and tooth. People who've had braces should be on the lookout for this future problem.

The staff is friendly and competent, there's no waiting once you arrive for your scheduled appointment (a big plus; the waits were very annoying at my last dentist), and the office is clean and modern.

The first time I came to Gentle Dental I had an abscess tooth and the doctors and staff were wonderful.

I have been going back to Gentle Dental ever since then and I am glad to recommend the whole dental team, they are top professionals from start to finish.

One of the best dental offices I've been to in my 57 years. The DMD director of this office has both excellent competency as well as a warm interpersonal doctor-patient style. The hygenists that worked with the doctor were careing, gentle, and professional. The administrative staff are also quite helpful.

I am in the process of of replacing a bridge with implants and crowns. Although going for any major dental work is never anything you look forward to, the Doctors, Hygienist and Staff at this location make is as pleasant as it can be. I don't hesitate to recommend Gentle Dental.

I've grown to trust the professional work of Gentle Dental - from the gentle but persistent encouragement to floss a little better to the insistence on a perfect bite with a new crown. They're always there and once worked me in when I broke a tooth on the Saturday of a long weekend.

i have a major fear of dentists and i love my dentist and hygenist here. before beginning any procedure, they took the time to explain everything and ask if i had any questions. every staff member that i interacted with was personable and super nice. they were excellent at what they do, got me in and out of the office in no time at all. especially for a poor grad student with no dental insurance, they offered me excellent introductory rates and took great care of my teeth. can't recommend them enough!

Hi, I had the patient offer that includes, the cleaning, exam, x-rays and treatment plan, for a really cheap price. It was great. the attention it was excellent and very fast. They didn't forget about how to treat to their customers, they are very gentle. I am not a big fan of dentists, but I would definitively recommend this place to anyone. Great staff by the way.

I have been a patient of Dr. Van de Rydt since 1995. I have had numerous procedures and always 100% satisfied. I would highly recommend Gental Dental in Cambridge for anyone who is looking for a superb dentist at a good price. Dr. Goldberg and the dental assistants and hygienists are excellent as well.

I decided to try out Gentle Dental and was able to schedule an appointment promptly without having to wait for weeks. During my first visit, Dr. Van De Rydt took the time to answer my questions and explain in detail the dental work that needs to be done, which is helpful. The staff are friendly. Overall I had a positive experience.

I have always been very nervous about going to the dentist, so I didn't go. My teeth were discolored, chipped and just about falling out, and they were my front teeth! From the time I walked into Gentle Dental, the front staff, Terry, the office manager, Ellen, my dental assistant, and Dr.Van De Rydt, couldn't of been any nicer, and put me right at ease, when I was finished with all my work, I was NEVER nervous, no pain, and had a brand new front bridge, which was very affordable! I haven't smiled in years because of being so ashamed of my teeth, now I can't stop smiling, and showing everyone my new teeth!! I even went back to Gentle Dental to get the rest of my teeth whitened to match! I couldn't of made a better choice of a dentist! Thank-you everyone! I can't wait to come in for my cleaning!
