I have been going to this dentist office  for the last 10 years. The entire team exceeds expectations when it comes to my dental health. They always make sure to go above and beyond to make me feel completely comfortable from the front desk to the exam chair. I will continue to refer my friends and family to Dr. Gailey and his team!

I have been going to Dr. Gailey since October of 2017. He has been a wonderful dentist even when I have had emergency issues twice over the weekend. He was very kind on the phone and never made me feel like I was bothering him even though I was! Lindsay is the best also! Very caring and concerned that I am comfortable during my procedure. The office staff is all amazing. Jolene and Tami are very welcoming. I would highly recommend the office.

My husband was experiencing severe tooth pain on Christmas Eve and the pain was so bad he desperately needed to see a dentist. We are so lucky that we found Dr Gailey! Not only did Dr Gailey come into the office on a holiday but he also listened to my husband, was compassionate and came up with a game plan to assist my husband with his issues. Dr Gailey also called and checked on my husband in the following days to see how he was doing! Needless to say Dr Gailey saved Christmas….literally!

After searching for a long time we found Gateway Family Dentistry.  We have been clients for many years now. We drive a ways but Dr. Gailey and his staff are worth it. This practice sincerely cares about you and each other. It shows in every aspect of their work. From front office to hygienist to Dr. Gailey himself rest assured you are well taken care of. Prompt, courteous, professional, expertise combined with great customer service. We refer all our friends here. Thank you Gateway!

My children & I have been going to Dr Gailey since 2005. Now that my children are adults, Dr. Gailey continues to be their dentist. Everyone has always been friendly & made us feel at home. The service has always been excellent. We have never felt pressured to have any services performed. Dr. Gailey is wonderful with young children. If they are experiencing any anxiety during the visit, he has a gift of being able to calm their nervousness. I can’t envision my family going to any other dentist.

I have had 2 visits to this office. Both, were great. On my recent visit, I thought I had a tooth that needed to be pulled. After an evaluation, he let me know that my crown just needed a slight adjustment. My tooth felt better later that day, and I thought I may need a dental implant that could have cost me quite a bit. The staff was very helpful and friendly, and just an all around great experience with this office. Highly recommended!

I’ve been going to Dr Gailey’s for over 10 years now. He is an exceptionally great dentist. He is genuine, intelligent, kind and knowledgeable. He stays current on dental technology, which I think is important. He always has a smile for you, and sincerely cares when he asks how you’ve been. His office is staffed with the friendliest group of people I’ve ever encountered in a health office setting. They are helpful, patient and also full of smiles. It is a pleasure any time I call, email or visit the office. A few years ago, we moved about 25 miles away from Dr. Gailey’s Chandler-based office. We still make the trek to see Dr. Gailey because he and his staff make it worth it.

Gateway Family Dentistry has consistently provided us with the best service over the years. Dr. Gailey, Tami, Valerie and everyone else on their team have always treated us well, ensuring we are well informed, and cared for. They truly show they care for their patients in every step – from scheduling, to procedures, to billing. I trust Dr.Gailey and his team, and I’m thankful for all their work, both as a patient and as a parent. Your work and your approach have truly improved the quality of our lives. Thank you!

Dr. Gailey and his staff treated my husband with warmth and respect. They didn’t judge me for avoiding the dentist and accommodated my husband and I. They are so friendly, Dr. Gailey and all the hygienists are knowledgeable and gentle. Because of Dr. Gailey and staff, I will look forward to the dentist instead of dreading it!

Sara B. from Chandler, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been seeing Dr. Gailey for several years and everyone in the office is great! I feel like they are very honest with me about any dental issues I may have and don’t pressure me into getting any unnecessary procedures. Valerie is my usual hygienist and she is great! She and Dr. Gailey always take plenty of time, answer any questions and are as gentle as can be. I would recommend Gateway Family Dentistry!

Angelina R. from Mesa, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I could not be more thankful Yelp is the reason I found this practice! Absolutely wonderful. I am “that patient”. The one who waits until things are bad because the terror & anxiety of having to stomach the dentist is horrible! I’m the patient who truly needs to be sedated. I would rather be ANYWHERE else. But, this place seems like they can handle me! From the start, they were beyond welcoming. I needed somewhat of an “emergency” appointment for some pain/cavity… fast forward to root canal. Oh, joy! But- not only did they squeeze me in the following day of calling, they took the time to thoroughly examine & gave me options! Paperwork was a total breeze online. Entirety was handled promptly, professionally & very easy! Went over absolutely everything, both the dental assistant & the Dr. They truly made me feel at ease & answered ALL of my questions before I even had to ask. I felt cared for & in good hands, from every staff member. It is truly appreciated. And a nice little touch- I loved the exam station facing a dimmed outer window. It really took my mind off of the anxiety watching the traffic, birds, flowers & whatever else going on outside! What is the best about this practice, besides great care, is their willingness to work with every patient on a personal basis when it comes to the financial aspect. Whether you have insurance or are in a bit of a predicament, they truly work with you in order to care. I am very impressed. Maybe still terrified of the upcoming work, but feeling very optimistic, in very good hands. Thank you for a great first impression, and while I dread coming back, I’m glad it is this practice!

Our daughter moved to Colorado and loves it there. She said that she didn’t think she was going to miss any part of the hot Arizona living. But she has changed her mind. She says she has never had a dentist as good as Dr. Gailey, and she and her family really miss him. I also see Dr. Gailey and his staff and can only say that they do a great job for me too. I travel from Tucson for my dental work and will continue to do so because of the excellent care I get Dr. Gailey and his staff.

I have been  coming here for  10 years.  Dr Gailey and his staff are amazing.  Gateway family dentistry has really helped me take care of my teeth.   I just recently had a dental emergency and i called first thing in the morning and they got me in and taken  care of  right away.       The place is always super clean,  and the staff is so friendly. They always take the time to explain  everything, and make sure you are comfortable.  I highly  recommend  getway family dentistry.

Timothy G. from Mesa, AZ (Source: Yelp)


If you want a kind and sincere dentist, this is the place. My dad, Dr. Gailey, is a super gentle dentist; that is, in fact, the number one thing I hear about him, from his friends and family alike. His mind is to help the patient and protect oral hygiene; it is not, like some other groups, to make a fortune on someone’s misfortune. His staff is super friendly and feels like family. They’re genuine about what they do and are right next to the Dr. in putting the patient first; they even learn/remember names and take interest in patients as people. The office in general lacks the intimidating commercial feel and is warm and welcoming. It’s great for families – the office handles kids extraordinarily well. It’s not a scary dentist experience when it comes to Gateway Family Dentistry.

Joshua W. from Mesa, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Had a cleaning and a cavity fixed at Dr. Gailey’s office. Really like the people who work there — I feel integrity is a big part of who they are. I was supposed to call back and tell them how I was feeling after they fixed my 30 distal, instead — I wrote this review. The pain I had before when I flossed between 30 and 31 is gone and I can now chew on my right side without any discomfort. Thanks!

Brandi M. from San Tan Valley, AZ (Source: Yelp)


My family and I have been coming to Dr. Gailey for around 8-9 years! The office staff is always very friendly and accomodating. My kids always feel welcome and comfortable when they come in for an appt. Dr Gailey and his staff are always very thorough. My kids especially love Tami and Valerie. Definitely would recommend if you are looking for a great dentist and friendly office!

Tara D. from Gilbert, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I would recommend Gateway Family Dentistry to anyone! They are friendly, easy to make appointment (email/online/by voicemail). The receptionist will get right back to you if you email her or leave a message. They sent me a Thank you Card and Thank you Email. The office goes the extra mile for you to feel appreciated… and I appreciate that! Dr. Gailey also fitted me for a retainer. He does it all. Sedation dentistry is amazing. 5 fillings and a deep cleaning- no memory of the entire event. Its the best thing ever (since i was tramatized as a child). It had been years since I went and I was amazed AMAZED *AmAZeD* at their level of service. I will never go anywhere else. If you are thinking about changing Dentists, I recommend Dr. Gailey. You will not be disappointed.

I’ve been coming to this dental office for more than 11 years. Dr. Gailey is a good dentist that is honest and compassionate. I have had many procedures over the years. He and his staff always made me feel comfortable and confident the work was done right. Moreover, I like that fact that he educates me on my diagnosis, treatment, and preventive care. I highly recommend gateway family dentistry to everyone.

Lisa P. from Chandler, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I have been going here since February 2006!  I never liked going to to the dentist.  Now, I have no reservations about going.  Not only have they given my husband and I excellent dental, they are very special people.  I have recommended them to friends and family and everyone has found a home there.  I had the choice to change insurance and save a little money but choose to stay with the same company because Dr. Gailey’s office took that insurance.  My husband and I won’t go anywhere else.

Mary P. from Gilbert, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I am always in good hands at Gateway Family Dentistry. They have a  wonderful professional staff.  This week, it was a pleasure to meet with Maria who handled my cleaning. Unexpectedly, my bi-annual cleaning had me scheduling another visit.  I had a chipped filing which Dr. Gailey took care of right away.  I appreciated the ability to book my appointment within the same week, and honestly enjoyed the return visit.

Mike H. from Chandler, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I was referred here by a friend and it was a great suggestion. The entire office is friendly, patient, and well-informed. Dr. Gailey educated me on many things and answered all my questions patiently and thoroughly. I didn’t get any extractions done but the hygenist got me for a deep cleaning on one side of my mouth. She was great. Gentle, patient and she knows her job. There was minimal pain; she used some type of rub-on anesthetic that did ok. 10,000,000 times better than any needles. They brought me back for a check-up and was just as informative. They seem flexible with insurances and the prices were really good. I have absolutely no complaints or problems with anything here. Awesome office and dentist!

I have been going to this office for a while. I love the staff and the dentist. They are respectful and courteous and they treat you like a person not just a patient. I had my wisdom teeth done here as well and while surgery is never fun (they were impacted), the process was painless and meant just for me. They care about your health and well-being. Just love this place! (Plus it always is beautifully decorated, especially during this Christmas season. )

We have been going to Gateway Family Dentistry for a few years now and they are excellent! Dr. Gailey is a wonderful dentist who truly cares about his patients. He and all of his staff are so friendly and personable, and they never try to sell you on a bunch of unnecessary procedures. They are wonderful with kids too! My son was terrified to go the the dentist at first, but Dr. Gailey and his staff are so gentle and patient with him, and always try to make it fun. Now he doesn’t mind going at all. We love Gateway Family Dentistry!

Jill C. from Chandler, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I am so happy to have found Dr. Gailey! My son has anxiety about going to the dentist, and Dr. Gailey and his team always make him feel comfortable and at ease. The trips to the dentist are no longer a big issue. I also always have a pleasant experience. His staff are caring and knowledgeable. We will continue to see Dr. Gailey for ALL of our dental needs.

Shawna L. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I originally found Dr. Gailey’s office through Groupon, and now I’ve been a patient for over 3 years! Dr. Gailey and all of the staff (every single one of them!) have been nothing but friendly, kind, and comforting. The dentist’s office is never really a place that one wishes to go to, but the staff at Gateway Family Dentistry make it as enjoyable as possible. Go here once and you will likely be a patient for life!

Francisco M. from Chandler, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Finding a dentist is like filing your taxes, nobody ever wants to do it but you know you have to; worse is the fact that rarely anybody takes the time to give a thumbs up when they find a good one. When facing a list of dentists from insurance, picking the right one can be daunting but it helps to know which ones are doing things well. I transferred to Gateway family Dentistry more out of need than anything else; the fact that their office was a stone’s throw away from where I lived also helped matters. That being said, I do NOT recommend selecting your dentist on mere proximity. In this case, however, I happened to get incredibly lucky. It’s been just over two years now since my first visit and truly the experience has been nothing short of fantastic. Dr. Gailey is friendly, knowledgable, approachable and welcoming. Their staff is genuinely helpful and detail oriented. The facility is clean, organized and eerily effective; to this day I have always been able to get in on my appointed time and never been kept waiting. It is great to find that there are dentists that treat their clients more as family than a number on a database. This goes for their entire staff. I’ve only had one hygienist there (Valerie!!!), but I am sure all of them are equally wonderful. Even when switching insurances they have made it seamlessly easy to deal with the changes and they work with you in a manner that is a great contrast from some of my past experiences where it seems they are simply trying to get your co-pay and run you back out the door. If you are in the process of finding a dentist, I highly recommend Gateway Family Dentistry.

“I went in for a second opinion/estimate on a crown. I was impressed with Dr. Gailey and his staff. They were all very friendly, welcoming, and knowledable. The attention that Dr. Gailey gave to my one tooth gave me confidence and comfort towards a procedure I have not had done before. I have an appointment schedule for this week to have the crown done.”

I am so happy that I found Dr. Gailey!! I had the same dentist for 28 years until I moved to Arizona from Texas. It was such a disappointing experience trying to find a new dentist out here, that I finally just gave up. Every dentist I went to tried to sell me and I felt like a quota obligation instead of a patient. So, I didn’t go to the dentist for 5 years. Finally about 6 months ago I found Dr. Gailey and his team. I have not one bad thing to say about any of them!! I love how caring, personable, and professional every one is. I love, love, love that they actually care about me and aren’t trying to sell me on a bunch of dental procedures that I don’t want and don’t need. In the last six months I have seen this dentist quite a bit and I have become so impressed by this group of people, that I have even changed my kids dentist to this one!!! I would recommend this dental office over and over and over again!!!!

Sarah W. from Mesa, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been seeing Dr. Gailey and the team at Gateway Family Dentistry for at least 5 years. I’ve had some super crappy experiences at the dentist and I have anxiety that seems to be intensifying as I get older. Everyone here is extremely friendly and unlike other dentist offices, I don’t feel like I’m being judged for my anxiety. They are all very caring and do everything they can to make me feel comfortable. Dr. Gailey has always treated me right and I wouldn’t dare think of seeing another dentist or stepping foot in another office. They are very accommodating. I’ve been able to be seen with almost no notice when I had a dental emergency. I really can’t recommend this practice enough.

Jeremy S. from Englewood, NJ (Source: Yelp)


My wife and I moved to the Valley a couple months ago, and I suddenly needed some fairly urgent dental work done. My anxiety levels were incredibly high, but from the moment I walked in this past Monday afternoon and met Jo at the front desk, they started to go down. They weren’t busy, so Dr. Gailey could meet with me that same day, examine the options, and set a course of action. When I found out the work I wanted/needed to have done could happen a week earlier than I’d thought (just two days after first walking in!), I hesitated only a second. I wanted to get it done! Today, the day of, CC helped to make me comfortable, explaining everything they could do in that regard. The process took a bit of time, given what I needed, but now that it’s done, I have to say that I am really impressed and grateful to CC, Dr. Gailey, and everyone else here. I’ve never felt so comfortable in a dentist’s office before. Thank you!

Jeremy S. Slavin (Source: Facebook)


As someone with an incredible amount of dental anxiety, I am so glad I found Dr. Gailey, CC, and everyone else at Gateway. I needed some serious work done, and they got me in quickly, made sure I knew what I options were, but above all, put me at ease. I’m so glad I found them; that Gateway Family Dentistry is so close to where we live is an added bonus! Thank you all so much!

Heidi N. from Gilbert, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Great, helpful, efficient staff; kind and gentle doctor; lots of attention to the little things that make a great visit.  They even make it fun and low stress for kids, with music to listen to, sedation dentistry, and props to take pictures.  Easy to schedule an appointment, no runaround.  The staff went the extra mile to make sure my insurance was correct and to make me feel welcome. I had three bad experiences with dental offices before this, and was delighted to discover how great this place is.  Highly recommend!

Cindy H. from Chandler, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I am extremely picky about my doctors, unlike my husband who goes to whoever is closest. The dentist I had for years left, so when I needed to find a new dentist, I went to one that was recommended to me. I needed some work done and this guy put me through the worst pain I have ever been through . I then had to go to a surgeon to have his inferior work fixed. So needless to say, it took me awhile to go back to a dentist. Just by chance I found Dr Gailey. As soon as you walk in you feel welcome. They make you feel as if they’ve known you for years. You can tell everyone likes each other and they love their job. My hygienist is Valerie, but if you can’t see her, I would recommend anyone there. As long as Dr Gailey doesn’t leave, I’m good for life.
