Dr. Philip Gentry is the best dentist I have ever been to. He is very skilled and painless and I felt comfortable during my entire crown appointment. The tooth looks and feels fantastic! He has a TV set up so I was able to watch ESPN while he was fixing my tooth. I sincerely recommend Dr. Gentry to everyone!

I found this doctor and his staff to be very professional and I was very pleased with my care from my visits. The cleaning went well and my fillings look good and didn't feel any pain during the procedure. They were honest and explained everything to me. SInce I was in college I had been experiencing jaw pain. Dr. Gentry made me a custom nightguard plastic retainer for me to wear when I sleep. It really worked great and now I do not have headaches much any more. The prices were reasonable- about what I expected. They billed my insurance company and I paid my portions. Nice dentist and office. I recommend Dr. Gentry.

I was recommended to Dr. Gentry by a co-worker who told me what a wonderful dentist he is. I was very happy with my care and impressed with how painless and pleasant the entire experience was. The crown and white fillings look great. My entire office are patients now and we are all pleased.

The post terrible is right on!! Have you ever been to a dentist that should be a politician? Go to Dr. Gentry. You can tell when you sit down in the waiting room that the visit is all about a show of how good he is. Better yet, go to the website and you can get a preview of the ??show? you will see when you walk in the door. It is like Dr. Ray on the DR. 90210 TV show, but live!

Dr. Gentry was a good dentist and did a good job cleaning my teeth, but that is about it. When it came time to pay, I paid and said goodbye. I expected that the office would discount my insurance portion from my bill, but that is not the case. When they did submit my claims (sometimes they did not), they kept the money, deposited it in the doctor??s office account and did not reimburse me. I had to dig back at my records and contact my insurance to get it fixed and get my insurance money. Even when they were aware of what had happened, they did the same thing again??they cashed my reimbursement check! I wonder how many times a doctor can bill and then keep the insurance claim and not get charged with insurance fraud? Ask Dr. Gentry.

They did finally pay me after I had to engage them several times. ?? oh and all they did was stick a check in the mail??no explanation of what had occurred, no apology, no reply email and they didn??t even seal the envelope. Buyer beware.

Dr. Philip Gentry did a wonderful job making a crown for my broken tooth. I had a back tooth with an old filling and it broke. Dr. Gentry (painlessly) numbed my tooth and fixed me up. Looks ever much better than before it broke.

I called the office and was able to see Dr. Philip Gentry that same day. I had a terrible toothache and he really took his time with me and talked to me about what needed to be done. I have a heart issue and he called my cardiologist and discussed what dental treatment was going to be done and how this would affect my over all health. He was so kind and caring. Dr. Philip Gentry really made me feel comfortable.

This office is great. The doctor and staff were friendly and my teeth feel much better after my visit. They were very professional and showed me my teeth, before and after, on a monitor and did a super job! Dr Gentry is a wonderful dentist.

Dr. Gentry is a really good dentist. I recommend him. I chipped a tooth eating lunch, and he fixed me up that same afternoon. I even watched TV during the procedure. Totally painless!

I chose Dr. Gentry as my dentist based on proximity to my home and provider status through my insurance. The slick, fancy waiting room and general office space was the first clue that the emphasis is on superficiality rather than substance and quality care.

Dr. Gentry recommended and performed a procedure that should never have been done: he prettied up an exposed root by covering it in bond rather than referring me to a periodontist for the gum grafting that I actually needed. My new dentist, who is both professional and ethical, just removed the bond that Dr. Gentry put on so that I can have the surgery for the gum grafting.

So, Dr. Gentry got paid by my insurance for a performing procedure that was not only unnecessary (i.e., cosmetic) but also counter the standard of care.

Bonus: While Dr. Gentry was working on my teeth, he recommended that I purchase Arbonne makeup and skincare products sold by his wife, who is also a dentist in the same office. He gave me a brochure and noted that there were more materials at the reception desk. Sure enough, I saw promotional materials in the waiting area on my way out.
