★★★★★

About a year or so ago I had to look for a dentist in Eugene. I was very nervous about finding one on my own (I am a college student who has only ever used my parents dentists) as dental offices can be kind of scary. That being said, I am so, so happy that I chose to give them a call. Their staff has amazing customer service. Their grounds are beautiful and they work to keep their patients calm and comfortable. I have had nothing but good experiences here and would most definitely recommend them to a friend.

My appointment at Distinctive Dentistry today was great. I was able to be seen for a broken tooth in less than 24 hours as a new patient! Dr. Gemmel, his hygienist, and office staff we’re very experienced and informative. They quickly and painlessly assessed my needs and put together a plan for treatment. I’m happy I chose this dentist office and would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a dentist in area!

As you can see from my Facebook photo, my teeth were in bad shape. I had severe anxiety, but Dr. Gemmell came highly recommended. I’ve been a patient now for several years, and I can’t say enough about Dr. Gemmell’s shop. Not only am I unafraid of going, but the people there make me comfortable and cared for. Even during cleanings, Dr. Gemmell will often make the time to check in on me. His new partner did the same during my last visit. I need a lot of in-depth, multi-stage work done. The team there made a plan and went through it with me, showing me what needed to happen when, and why, including costs. From there we set up a timeline that would help me use my insurance to advantage, and they’ve even discounted their own work to make the project affordable. On top of that the work they’ve done is amazing. I’m not afraid to smile any more. I’m also not afraid to go to the dentist. For that I kindly thank the staff of Distinctive Dentistry

I had a dental emergency after calling literally every where 1-800-dentist found these wonderful people who saw me the very next day , and set me up the extraction next day after that I can’t wait to have this done . The prices were beyond reasonable and they work with you . I can’t thank them enough ! Even though they don’t take my insurance I’ll happily keep paying cash because they were there for me when I needed it the most .

I am a new patient at Distinctive Dental. I had an great first visit.The staff, I met, were friendly and kind. Dr Gemmell did an excellent job explaining what was going on with my teeth. I left the office like I was well taken care of. In addition, the waiting room was a calm and comfortable place to wait, especially before seeing the dentist!

★★★★★

I really like my dental hygienist and I love going to the dentist. My teeth get so fresh and so clean after I go. It is awesome and they are totally friendly. I like that I feel welcomed when I come into the office. I have to go every three months because I build plaque very fast so they have to clean it but I am getting better about flossing everyday.

★★★★★

THE best dental services I have ever had in my 65 years! Fast, friendly, efficient, highly skilled, cost conscious, no waiting, remarkable! Dr. Gemmell is focused on what is best for the patient’s needs, not the most expensive options. He enjoys his work, and that is reflected in his modern, up to date skills. The staff could not be better to work with or more pleasant, and are also highly skilled! AWESOME!

★★★★★

Absolutely beautiful building with floor to ceiling windows in the rooms so you have something to look at while you’re sitting in the room, with privacy bushes and lovely greenery. The hygienist was very gentle during the scraping part which made the whole experience a lot more pleasant. They were very thorough during my initial appointment with the amount of x-rays and photos they took, and were even able to squeeze in a cleaning, which was unexpected but very much appreciated. The doctor (Ty) was super talkative and polite, made me feel comfortable and at ease. Would recommend!

★★★★★

Amazing! I have had dental anxiety for awhile, and had not been in quite a few years due to bad experiences. I decided to get my dental health back on track, and am SO happy I chose Dr. Gemmell’s office! At my first appointment I was amazed at how kind and caring my hygienist was. I knew I had quite a few problems but she helped me feel like it wasn’t the end of the world and explained what the next steps would be. I have gone back now for a deep cleaning, and could not have had a better experience! Again, very kind and caring. They explain everything to you and really make sure you are comfortable. There is even options for those who have high anxiety like myself! Would definitely recommend to someone who is hesitant about going back to the dentist after not going for awhile.

No other office in town would take me for an emergency appointment on a Friday. They did an extraction, and I’m someone who’s very very scared of the dentist and for the first time in my life I was not terrified the entire time. It was actually a really smooth process. They didn’t shame me for how awful my teeth are like every other dentist I’ve been to. They just found the problem, offered a solution, we agreed on a plan, then they did it, I feel much better, and now I think my dentist phobia might be cured. Thank you guys!

I have been seeing Dr Gemmell and his very skilled and compassionate staff for over two years. Prior to seeking the services of Distinctive Dentistry, I’ve experienced poor and/or inadequate dental care which ultimately required more and more procedures. Not any more. Not only have I been thoroughly impressed with Dr. Gemmell’s expertise and his focus on preventative care but I’ve also been thoroughly impressed with the level of concern and encouragement that the doctor and his whole staff provide to their patients

★★★★★

I always enjoy my appointments here at Distinctive Dentistry. I’ve met both dentists and they are wonderful! I love how they explain everything that is going on and what the plan is. They feel like they have time for you and your questions without making you feel like you’re inconveniencing them. All the dental hygienists and assistants are wonderful as well. Professional, knowledgeable, and quick with their jobs. I also enjoy speaking with the front desk staff, always patient and professional. Not to mention the building and landscaping is beautiful. Thanks, Distinctive Dentistry, for a wonderful experience every time I come!

Dr. Gemmell and Dr. Holland are both great dentists who “talk” to you and hear your concerns. It never hurts when I get numbed, and they go above and beyond service even meeting me on Super Bowl Sunday for emergency appointment! Best magazines of any Dr.’s office with daily news-paper as well for when you do have to wait (seldom long). Referral program is also a plus, and all the staff is super professional and personal.

★★★★★

We’ve been seeing Dr. Gemmell and Holland for a little over a year now, and they’ve been fantastic. The entire staff is terrific. My wife recently broke a crown, (3-27-17) and they got her in to be checked in about 15 minutes. That’s amazing really, above and beyond any level of expected service !! Keep up the great work, and thanks !!!

I found Dr. Gemmell & Dr. Hollands office through a good friend of mine. My dentist of 7 years had just retired and I wasn’t very impressed with his replacement. Anyways Dr. Gemmell and staff are very friendly, professional and map your treatment out. They let you know your cost and work with you and your insurance constraints. My 6 year old just had her first appointment and I couldn’t have been happier. I highly recommend Dr. Gemmell office.

I can’t say enough good things about Distinctive Destistry. This a small, family owned kind of a business that delivers really big results. The staff is polite, friendly, courteous and very competent at what they do. But, that is only the half of it. The real story is the world class dentistry that is performed at this dental business every day. I have tried several different dentists over the past 50 years, and I can say without reservation that Robert Gemmell is the best dentist I have ever had. And his chair side manners are every bit as good as his impeccable dentistry. I give Robert Gemmell and Distinctive Dentistry a 10 out of 10 and highly recommend this dentist office to anyone looking for a quality dentist and really good staff.

★★★★★

Past, poor experiences at local dental offices created in me a terrible fear of having needed dental work; there is much to say about safety in a dental chair. My dental needs are to the extreme far reaching (missing teeth, troubled gums, and a work schedule that is far from easy to make appointments). Doctor G. and his entire office staff are ethical, honest, and calming; I am made to feel that my needs are important, judgement free. I visited many, many (too many) dental offices before I made a commitment to a partnership with a dentist and his staff. In Dr G., I believe I have made the best choice and now that I feel safe, I’m getting my smile, and health back.

Dr. Gemmell and his team are a great asset to the community. Every staff member I have encountered is friendly, informative and patient. I have some anxiety around dentists due to previous experiences and after explaining this it really felt like Dr. Gemmell made it his mission to thoroughly explain my treatment plan and every step. Additionally, I felt that he took extra care every step of the treatment to ensure that I felt calm, comfortable and pain free. I cannot give enough kudos and would not hesitate to recommend all friends and family to Dr. Gemmell and his team at Distinctive Dentistry.

If your looking for a dentist in the Eugene area, this is the one for you! Everyone you come in contact with at this office is not only professional, but very personable! I have always felt comfortable when I have come in for dental work. not only has my anxiety gone away about dentists, but the staff is so friendly and comforting that it makes my time getting this necessary work done stress free. They also do their best to get you right in for any urgent dental work that comes up. I just can’t say enough good about them. Go see them, they will not disapoint!

★★★★★

I’ve been coming here since 2015 and have had excellent patient experiences every time. I have a lengthy dental history (cavities galore!) and frequent this dental office at least 3x a year. The hygienists, assistants and dentists are all so professional, friendly, and patient. They are gentle on my mouth and always explain what they will do prior to doing it (as a healthcare worker, I understand the importance of this and how easily you can skip this). I recently had an exceptionally good experience with a dental assistant named Gina. She was so good at explaining the reasoning and purpose of each part of my procedure. I am always happy to recommend this dental office to all my friends in town.

★★★★★

Dr. Gemmel is a Great dentist, and our family really appreciates his services. His dental prices are fair, and he works with each patient to ensure that they get the quality care they need. His staff is SO friendly, and warm, and they know what they’re doing. They called me by my name when I first walked in, and that was a really nice surprise. � They work with you regarding your scheduling needs, and try their best to make appointments that are best for you. (example- I am NOT a morning person��) so for me, we make later appointments. They just really care. We are really happy coming to Dr. Gemmel’s office, and I would encourage you to try them if you need a good dentist. Sincerely, Julie O’callaghan�

I have been a patient of Dr Gemmell’s forever! His staff are and have always been exceptional. His interest and personal connection invites open and transparent communication while maintaining a professional relationship. I feel safe and well cared for every moment I spend with his practice and recommend them to anyone who is looking for a dentist.

I just had my first appointment since the pandemic, the DD Office was very clean and I was in my chair in less than 5 minutes. The staff have taken every safety precaution so I felt super comfortable throughout my appointment. My dental hygienist was very friendly and professional, she also worked efficiently to keep things moving. Dr Gemmell is the best dentist I have ever had!

Wonderful staff and amazing Dentist! They make every effort to make sure you are comfortable with a warm blanket, headphones and warm vanilla towel at the end. The office is updated, clean and I never have to wait. I appreciate Dr Gemmell’s attention to detail and his calm demeanor has greatly reduced my fear of the dentist!

★★★★★

Dr. Gemmell and Dr. Holland have embraced my extreme fear of the dentist and allowed me to feel completely comfortable while getting a couple emergency procedures done within a couple weeks of each other. I chose to use sedation. They also didn’t make me feel bad for allowing so much time to pass between my last dentist visit and coming to them. They were very encouraging about setting up a treatment plan and the billing department also worked with me as far as payments. I would give them 10 stars if I could and recommend them to anyone!!

Dr. Gemmell and Dr. Jaros are both amazing dentists! I switched from my dentist of over 10 years to these dentist because it was closer to my home and my husband went there. Was a little nervous to see another dentist but both Dr. Gemmell and Dr. Jaros were so kind and made me feel like I was at home. I highly recommend them for your dental needs!

This is by far the BEST Dental office I have been to. At 63yo I have been to a number of dentists. DR. Gemmel and his entire staff are far and away superior to any place I have been. Their caring attitude, fun, yes fun, friendly demeanor, attention to detail, and willingness to accommodate your needs, scheduling, and emergency’s speaks volumes of the type of people and professionals they are.

★★★★★

This is the best dentist experience I have ever had. Being someone who has anxiety when it comes to the dentist, doctor Gemmell and his staff are patient and take the time to explain exactly what they are doing which really helps ease the patient. We have had major work done and the office has been kind enough to allow us to make payments. Best in town by far, they truly care about their patients!

I have had nothing but great experiences here. I’m a college student and was super nervous about trying to find a dentist on my own and they definitely exceeded my expectations. They have been extremely helpful as far as my finances go and will always work with me. They are also very good at making nervous people feel comfortable. Over all I am super happy with this dentist’s office.

The Westing family has been seeing Doctor Gemmell since September of this year. Our experiences with Doctor Gemmell and staff have been nothing but wonderful. The whole atmosphere is very inviting. No long waits. The rooms are spacious and have a view of outside. They work so well to make sure that the patients are comfortable. I would recommend them to anyone!

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Gemmell for nine years because the service and care I receive is excellent. Friendly knowledgeable staff, from reception to assistants to Dr’s. They take advantage of the newest technologies to make my visit as comfortable and quick as possible. I highly recommend you give them a try if you are looking for a new dentist.

I have had great customer service from this office. Every time I go into the office the front office staff are very friendly and helpful. I recently had a crown completed and 2 more teeth prepped for crowns and am very impressed at how well Tracy works with both Dr. Holland and Dr. Gemmell. They have a wonderful system and things seem to go very smoothly every time.

I refer anyone I hear mentioning getting a new dentist to Dr. Gemmel. He is the only dentist I’ve had who gets things right the first time every time. His office staff is extremely welcoming and somehow manage to recognize you and call you by your first name even though they only see you twice or three times a year. His hygienists are all pleasant and friendly. Nothing awkward goes down here. They also continually make upgrades to their facilities, so whether it’s new couches, new lighting fixtures or even the warm moist towelette they give you to clean your face afterward that now has a nice lemony scent, they are always looking to improve and actually do upgrades that make them better. In addition, they have a texting feature that is super helpful for remembering appointments or rescheduling. This is the best dental office I’ve ever had the pleasure of dealing with. Dr. Gemmel is a great guy to chat with and I like everyone there. I can assure you that you will not be disappointed choosing to do business with them. They will take good care of you, make you feel like they actually care about you and your experience. I’d leave six stars if I could. Don’t waste time with amateurs elsewhere—come here first and you won’t regret it!

Woke up with a toothache. I hate going to the dentist, but my wife recommended Distinctive Dentistry and made me an appointment. When I arrived they greeted me by name and were very professional. The DA thoroughly explained everything she was doing, and Dr. Gammel was very inviting and thorough and reassured me that they could save my tooth. He prescribed some antibiotics for the infection that was causing me pain, and they scheduled a filling and crown for the same week. Genuinely impressed with the service and care I received.
