I first went to see Dr. Smolyar for a consultation a few months ago. I was concerned about the appearance of my upper front teeth as I have always been self-conscious and unable to smile with ease. Thanks to Dr. Smolyar and his brilliant suggestions of Veneers, I am no longer embarrassed of my smile and gleam daily!! The entire staff was friendly and welcoming. I know enjoy going to the dentist!

Alex Smolyar is my "Gentle" dentist. Since 2004, and after not being anywhere near a dentist in a very long time, treats me with respect and compassion. His staff is happy, attentive and kind. Over the years several emergencies have arisen. Dr. Smolyar has always made time to see me the same day if the crisis involved pain. He has always resolved any issues in a prompt and professional manner. I do love my dentist!

I love Gentle Dental and would enthusiastically recommend them to anyone. Dr. Smolyer and the hygenists working with him truly are gentle -- they really care about your comfort and do exceptionally high quality work. The desk staff is courteous and friendly, whether you're in the office or on the phone, and they're brilliant at answering any insurance or billing questions you may have. (At Gentle Dental, I've never paid a penny more than their pre-procedure estimate (a lot different from other dentists I've seen!).)

When I first started going to Gentle Dental, I'd had a very bad experience with another dentist and was quite afraid. I hadn't been to a dentist in nearly two years and only went because I'd broken a tooth and was forced to deal with it. When I called, the staff treated me and my broken tooth as their top priority, even though I'd never been there before. Dr. Smolyer saw me the same day I called and did a fantastic repair job; getting my crown was simple and painless and I couldn't believe how beautiful the result was. Not only was I comfortable enough to immediately schedule my next check-up, but I've even gone back for some cosmetic work I'd always wanted but was too afriad to get. I'd say that anytime you can take a patient from being too afriad to schedule a cleaning to voluntarily coming in for elective work, you're clearly doing something very right!

Highest recommendation -- love these guys!

I take strong exception to the person who claims all good reviews here are posted by staff themselves. I'm definitely NOT staff, I came to Gentle Dental for invisalign treatment. I had gone to them a few years ago for some dentistry and found them to be the most friendly, patient office I've ever been in. The girls who assisted this time with my moldings were absolute angels. They knew I was really nervous. I have a very small mouth and a gag reflex so taking impressions was an absolute nightmare for me AND for the staff. They never gave up and worked hours on several occasions, keeping me calm and just determined to help this happen for me. Ultimately we got the impressions we needed. I can't thank the staff enough for their patience and courtesy. They are the ONLY dental office I'll even go to as I've always been terrified of dentists.

I am shocked at the reviews this office has received. I have always hated going to the dentist and had my first appointment a few weeks ago. I went to the appointment because of the location, my insurance and my tooth pain. It was actually on Halloween. I was greeted warmly by the front staff and truly felt welcomed. Dr sheikh was wonderful and very informative. I needed a crown for my broken tooth. Thomas came back to explain my co-pay and the procedure process before anything was started. I had a full understanding of the procedure and finances and felt very comfortable with the entire visit. I love this office and and have referred co-workers and my husband to go there. I actually told the staff that I have hated the dentist until now!! I was at the appointment for an hour and half and saw the professional way every patient was treated...epect great things when you go there.

Gentle Dental Boston is all about your money and not about your teeth! They have very outdated equipment, which leaks and squeaks. They are very prompt at billing you at high prices, but when it comes to customer service they are horrible. I went for a very simple service - teeth bleaching, usually takes 2 days, one day for taking impression of your teeth and then the next day pick up the trays and bleaching kit. Now is 5 weeks later and I still don't have the bleaching kit. I've been calling them and asking many times. They keep giving me ridiculous excuses like their cabinet is locked and manager is not there. The truth of the matter is that once they have your money they don't care about your satisfaction with service. Absolutely unacceptable! I still don't have the bleaching kit to this day, but after the office manager got involved, I promptly received my money back and a promise to deliver the kit to my home door steps for free.

Dr. Lim is a good orthodontist. He caters to the patient's need and will use creativity and flexibility to make the most out of a complicated bite and tooth alignment (from personal experience). Also their service is economically reasonable at the gentle dental. Enthusiastically recommend their orthodontic treatment. Dr. Lim's staff are all very nice and warm and friendly.

I've had the dubious pleasure of being treated by quite a number of dentists in the 5 countries I've lived (24 years in Europe, etc). Don't get me wrong, I've seen really good dentists over the years.

However, Dr Nagy stands out among all as an extraordinary dentist. Extremely professional and honest, very gentle hands, and always going the extra mile to deliver a perfect result. In my case, he has done everything from simple to complicated repairs, including very tricky crowns, and so far, perfect outcome.

I've also once had the opportunity to overhear him talking to a patient with a serious root infection (on a fractured tooth apparently) explaining why the patient couldn't "cheat" going "el cheapo". I must say admired Dr Nagy's calm way of explaining again and again in different ways -- the patient was in a state of denial. Impressive patience Dr Nagy.

Note: Dr Nagy is NOT one of those jovial kind of dentists, smiling left and right and telling jokes. However, if you want perfection and kindness, that's him. I've already referred my wife and all of our friends to him :-)

Also extra points for Dr Nagy's assistant Gee Gee and the entire staff - they started greeting me by 1st name after only 2 visits... Amazing level of dedication...

Miss Teresa Chow, the RDH, is wonderful because she always goes above and beyond. The first time I had my cleaning with her, she spotted six cavities and brought them to the attention of the dentist. I was grateful that she was more attentive and responsible than the previous hygienist. (I always keep up with my regular cleanings, and I find it hard to believe that that many cavities could have developed since my previous cleaning visit with another hygienist.) Just yesterday - after having had my cleanings with another hygienst for over a year, I went to have a cleaning, and I was glad to have her again. She spotted two cavities and turned me to the dentist. Now I hope that she will always be my hygienist because I know I will be in good hands.

Dr. Alex Smoylar 131 Tremont Street in my opinion has****premium dental service,a professional and welcoming staff, and an uncompromising dedication to customer satisfaction. That in so many words has been mine and my childrens experience over the last 5-6 years with Dr. Smolyar and his amazing and caring staff.

I rate them a 10+ I would and have actually encouraged many unsure, possible patients to just give 131 Tremont street a try. In my opinion all it would take is one opportunity to meet Dr. Smolyar and his staff, Natalie,Teresa, Thomas, Wyle, Carisa and all the many wonderful unnamed staff and I would almost guarantee a connect. They would experience that one on one detail to care that so many service agents are missing today. I plan to stay with Dr. Alex Smolyar and his staff at 131 Tremont Street, Boston MA, because I am treated with the care and respect I deserve. Thanks everyone at 131 Tremont St. :), Mayra

I highly recommend this office. I have a lot of dental issues and was happy to find this office after many other dentists disappointed me. Dr Smolyar is the best dentist I've ever had. He clearly explains procedures and next steps, makes sure I am comfortable and most importantly is very patient. The staff has always been conscientious and professional.

This place is terrible. I made an appointment by phone with one dentist. But they provided another one to me. That dentist gave me a huge expensive unnecessary treatment plan, which means I have to go back to see her in the next 5 or 6 years. Also, she secretly recommended some dentist outside Gentle Dental to me. I guess dentists working there do not care about the reputation of Gentle Dental, which said by me college is "terrible". Finally, I went to a family dentist, at least who cares about his own business. He gave me a good treatment.

Dr. Adler of Gentle Dental in Boston performed a crown lengthening surgery on me. It was quite a difficult surgery but I think I was very well taken care of. Also the post-operative care was excellent. I recommend this office enthusiastically.

I needed a couple of permanent crown inserts for some of my badly damaged teeth. The challenges of these complicated and damaged teeth are enough to scare any dentist. Given the major obstacles and difficulties, Dr. Nagy proved his expertise in each situation. At the gentle dental tremont street in Boston, Dr. Nagy and his teammate Gee Gee really provide warm and personalized and most importantly, dedicated care for their patients. Enthusiastically recommend those seeking a dedicated, patient, gentle and honest dentist to visit this office when you are in tooth trouble.

I came to Gentle Dental many years ago.I changed dentist when the last one I had try to have work done on me that they had considered substandard and could lead to some serious trouble according to them, not realising that they had done the work themselves. Needless to say they were also asking for an exorbitant fee which I couldn't afford.So I went to Gentle Dental for a second opinion, and they pointed out that this work was not urgent. I am glad I went and since have had all my dental work done at Gentle Dental.The staff is very courteous and the dentists are excellent.What impressed me the most was first the honesty, second the fact that the staff isn't going through a revolving door-you meet the same people you met before, year after year, which is a sign of a healthy work environment where people take pride in their work, and third that the overall atmosphere of the office is very friendly, even jovial at times, but they take their work very very seriously.The quality of the work is outstanding.There is a real feeling of relaxation here. Not quite the impression I have had of dentists in general. And I like the fact that the service is very personalized. Every procedure is clearly explained before it is implemented, I never had to deal with any forms from my insurance after my first visit, and they can do all the work on the premises which I required.I recommend Gentle Dental to all of my co-worker-I work downtown.If you need to change dentist or if you don't have a dentist yet, in my opinion you will not find a better place to have the work done that you need.

I've been a patient of the Tremont Street Gentle Dental for a little over 2 years now, and Dr. Smolyar is by far and above the best dentist I have ever had. I've had acid reflux for 14 years which has wreaked havoc on my teeth, and I've been to 10 different dentists in my life. I've had plenty of experience with root canals, crowns, fillings, with both good and bad and mediocre dentists.

Two years ago I had gotten a job which allowed me to take care of my teeth, and I went to Dr. Smolyar's office at the recommendation of a friend. My teeth were in pretty bad shape, and I doubted that some of them could be saved. However 2 years later 6 root canals later, 8 crowns, and after a bunch of fillings I'm almost to the point where I have a perfect set of teeth. All of the crowns fit perfectly, and have stayed firmly in place. Every root canal was performed perfectly (sometimes pieces of the root can remain. One of my previous dentists had missed a canal... which is a very expensive mistake)

The front office staff are extremely courteous, and the supporting staff are fantastic.

This particular Gentle Dental is easily the best dental office I have ever been in. I cannot recommend them enough for someone who needs major dental work done.

I have been Dr. Easley's patient for a long time since he practiced in New York and have followed him to New England area. I think it is not fair to call your doctors expensive or slimy salesmen just because they are passionate about providing what is the best for the patients' oral health and unwilling to compromise with a quick cheap fix with a lesser result . Also as far as i know, Dr. Easley never practices in California and the reason he didn't renew his Ohio license is because he was training in a hospital in New York at the time. It is fine to dislike a doctor's style or the clinic's ambiance but it is absolutely irresponsible to ruin a health professional's reputation with falsified information.

I first went to Gentle Dental this past summer after avoiding dental care for quite some time. I was impressed by the office staff and was very pleased with the treatment I received. Dr. Smoyler is very patient and attentive to his patients, making sure that they are comfortable throughout the procedures and also with the follow up appointments. The office staff is relaxed and that puts the patients at ease. I would highly recommend this office and staff, especially for those suffering from a case of "dental phobia".

I have been a patient of gentle dental on tremont street since 2005. My grandmother Shelia was referred by a patient of Dr. Smolyar's (Gloria Burke) whom just raved about how great her dentist is. My grandmother need full dentures on upper and lower. From the first time we entered the office we were greeted by a wonderful and very helpful staff. Dr. Smolyar and his asst. are wonderful people, he took his time with my grandmother answered all her questions. To make her story short her dentures came out great, as of today she still says that Dr. Smolyar is one of her best doctors. I myself also became a patient of Dr. Smolyar's and also have referred my mother who received her bridge work (lovely). My unlce who also will be getting bridge work...
Dr. Smolyar is one of the nicest, most understanding and Gentle dentist I have ever meet... The staff is the best in the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dr. Smolyar took very good care of me, explaining what my options were and what each would approximately cost. In the end, luckily, it was the least expensive option, and the procedure went by quickly and professionally.

I moved to the city 6 months ago and was due for my cleaning. A dentist saw me on my first visit, examined my mouth and x-rays were taken. I still have to do a second visit where a dental hygienist will clean my mouth (normally a DMD (Alex Smolyar in my case, nice guy) sees you and x-rays are taken, and on your second visit a dental hygienist will do the cleaning). All for 57 bucks. I have no dental insurance and though I had to go through a big hassle, but that never happened! Why 4/5 stars? Everything was seamless except the fact that my dentist had en emergency and I had to wait 30 mins.

I went to the Gentle Dental on Tremont street for a regular cleaning. They saw me quickly and didn't have a problem making an appointment. The staff was more than friendly and seemed to understand that most people don't like going to the dentist. They were great, I already made an appointment for 6 months for my next cleaning! Would most definitely recommend it.

I had a satisfactory experience at Gentle Dental. There was a bit of a run-in with my lack of insurance but once that was taken care of I was able to get my yearly check-up just fine and without much hassle. I didn't really develop a rapport with the dentist who saw me here, and that's important to me so I only went here once. The wait time wasn't too bad and they were somewhat helpful with my insurance issues.

Their new patient offer is nice but the service is not the best. Staff can be rude at the front desk. I found that two of the dentists were not helpful and referred me to a third. It was a frustrating experience.

I was not looking forward to making this dentist visit but the staff made me feel at ease once I called to make the appointment and then even more so once I walked through the door. They made an old nervous man like myself very comfortable. The Dr. Smolyar was great and explained everything and reassured me everything would be ok. The office manager was very professional and explained all my healthcare benefits in even a way I could understand. The assistant was welcoming and kind. I would definately go back and recommend them to anyone. Especially dental phobes, like myself!
