I visited Dr.Andre for the fourth time last week and I believe that I finally found my dentist. The entire experience for every visit has been an absolute delight, which is unexpected to say the least for a dental office. Zero wait, clear communication and staff that actually cares is something I’ve not had in any medical experience. I’ll be coming back to Dr. Andre on the future for whitening and anything else that comes up.

Gentle Dental has professional dental physicians that give customers excellent service of caring their teeth; especially my teeth. I had cleaning done to my teeth. It was done expertly without feeling any pain. Thank you staff of Gentle Dental for your dental service. I would recommend you to anyone who is looking for a good dental service. Sandra Washington

I was very surprised. I went because they had a special and I figured I wouldn’t get that much attention. The ladies at the desk were very polite and professional. I didn’t wait long. Every section of my mouth was xrayed and a full set of pictures were also taken. The dentist addressed all my concerns and paid close attention to my problem, although that was not part of the special. There was a great financial advisor who explained everything completely. They really impressed me.

It is extremely difficult to find a dental office that you can trust. At Gentle Dental from the moment you walk in the care is exceptional. Staring with the fact that the office is very modern and spotless, the staff is very professional and caring, i felt very comfortable. Everything here is centered around patients’ needs, including relaxing atmosphere and professional care. Listening to relaxing music of your choice makes the entire experience  so much less stressful! I never feel rushed and always leave satisfied with the care i get. I feel very lucky to get my dental care here.

Dr. Andrey is just simply the best dentist out there. He’s extremely professional and caring. I’ve had quite some work done on my teeth and I’ve never felt more comfortable and at ease in his care than with any other dentist. The office is impecable, they offer the highest standards and technologies I’ve ever seen elsewhere and his dedicated office team just make the whole experience of having to visit the dentist relaxing and enjoyable. I’m not one to write reviews, but this office will far exceed anyones expectations of having to visit the dentist.

I’ve now visited Gentle Dental twice and had the best experience at this dental office. I originally came in for a root canal,after a pretty quick web search. I ended up paying 30% less than what was quoted to me by another dentist in queens. I can again this week for a follow up, which their office not only scheduled but kindly followed up with me twice to make sure the time still worked for me. I am generally afraid of any dental treatment,but this office is different compared to what I have experienced before in my life,particularly the level of care and service. Great service, staff is nice and all. For the first time,I enjoyed a visit to the dentist. Would definitely recommend!!!!!

Pamela L. from Queens, NY (Source: Yelp)


I have a huge fear of the dentist, major major fear so when I had to make an emergency appointment seeing “gentle” in the title seemed like the best place to make an appointment. They were able to get me in the same day. The staff was so kind to me when I expressed my nerves and fear and did everything they could to help keep me relaxed, I was given a pillow for my head, a blanket to keep me warm, there are tv’s and netflix in the rooms and when I was too nervous to even think of what to watch the hygienist suggested “Friends” which was the prefect distraction. The dentist was so kind to me, was not judgmental, didn’t make me feel bad about my tooth or my fear. He was understanding and kind but most importantly made the whole procedure pain free. I was given noise canceling head phones to listen to music during my root canal, the dentist was so gentle and constantly checked on how I was doing and feeling through out the whole process. I feel very lucky to have found this dentist office and am now making them my family dentist. It’s also worth mentioning my appointment was for 1:45, I arrived a little early to fill out my paper work and once I completed my forms, I don’t think I sat in the waiting room for more then 3 minutes. I was taken in right away and was taken care of immediately which I really appreciated as well. I really can’t say a better thing about my experience, I highly recommend Gentle Dental.

I never thought I would say this but, going to Gentle Dental was the best dental experience I’ve ever had so far. The staff was phenomenal! Courteous, professional and thorough. Absolutely no discomfort during the procedure!!!! I’m very particular about where I go to the dentist, but I love this place after just one visit! The facility is clean, with modern technology. With a name like “Gentle Dental”, they didn’t disappoint!!!!! The only thing that disappointed me was the fact that my insurance didn’t cover a part of the procedure I needed, so I used carecredit. I definitely recommend this place especially if you don’t like going to the dentist. You will enjoy the experience here.

Of all the medical providers that I go for my 6 month/yearly check ups (eye Dr.., family practitioner for my physical, etc.), my favorite place to visit is Gentle Dental. The office is super clean, the entire staff is so friendly, nice and I love the advanced technology/equipment they use. I wish every medical provider was as organized. I travel all the way from Suffolk County to use Gentle Dental. Well done and thank you!

Carol S. from Queens, Queens, NY (Source: Yelp)


Gentle Dental of Bayside is by far the best dental office I’ve been. For years I’ve feared going to the dentist because of horrific dental experiences I encountered in past years. The staff at gentle dental are courteous, extremely professional & the place is immaculately clean. I’m very satisfied with the quality of the dental work that Dr. Ilyabayev performed. Definitely check out this place, I highly recommend it.

Jill F. from Bronx, NY (Source: Yelp)


Impecable service! Staff and doctors are all SUPER friendly and professional! Couldnt get ANY better than this! You even get to watch tv, a movie or listen to an ipod while getting your teeth done! And you get a pillow (under your head and knees) and lipgloss! Everything is attended to from start to finish you are taken VERY well care of. I have even hoped they take longer so I can finish an episode or movie I’ve been watching! Who can say that!

Friendly staff excellent customer service and very clean facility!!!! I was very impressed. Excellent treatments my hygienist Cindy is very professional and kind. She cleaned my teeth so gently I like going to my dentist office everyone is professional and kind. Thank you everyone including the Gentle Dental staff it’s a great place.

Deborah H. from Queens, NY (Source: Yelp)


I was always petrified of the dentist and as a result I had not been to a dentist in over 30 years.  It was only by the grace of God that I still had teeth.  One Saturday I had a dental emergency and found Gentle Dental by looking online.  They took me immediately. Fixed my problem, painlessly and I have been a patient ever since and have had many procedures done including root canals and implants, ALL PAINLESSLY

Jaysen M. from Massapequa Park, NY (Source: Yelp)


Gentle Dental is definitely “The best of the best!” I had a root canal done and I was very surprised that I didn’t feel any pain during or after the procedure! I have to admit the girls at te front desk were very attentive and I knew they could tell I was nervous about the procedure, but they made me feel comfortable ( as comfortable as I could have been anyway). Dr. Andrey Ilyabayev is a down to earth dentist that mase me feel very relaxed, and pain free throughout the entire procedure. I will be returning for my routine visits.

Anais G. from PRINCE, NY (Source: Yelp)


Very good experience! I’m French and it was my first time going to a dentist in the US. The staff was extremely nice which helped me to relax and feel comfortable. During my diagnostic, I could ask questions, and the dentist took some time to explain me what will be the next steps and different options to treat me. I really appreciated his professionalism and advice. I already have my next appointment set up and I liked how the staff tried to adapt to my busy schedule.

My wife and I been using this facility for the past couple of years and we wouldn’t trade it for anything. The procedures are done professionally and with care.the customers service is very attentive and they always offer refreshments. I highly recommend Gentle Dental

Alex S. from Staten Island, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr Ilyabayev is awesome at what he does and he truly is a gentle dentist! He is very knowledgeable and always spends the time to explain to you every procedure that he will do. I have utmost confidence that my teeth are in good hands. There are no unnecessary procedures being recommended and the care I receive is superb.  I highly recommended Dr. Ilyabayev, to anyone that is looking for a great dentist.

From the staff greeting you at the front desk to the dental assistants and the dentists treating you to the beautiful impecable and bright office, Gentle Dental offers top notch service. Everything from treatment rooms, hallways, bathrooms, waiting area, absolutely everything looks bright and clean. Every piece of equipment looks new and state of the art. The staff treats you respectfully, professionally and yet with a smile, making you feel your satisfaction matters to them. What most impressed me however was the quality of work they did on me. I was in a lot of pain due to a fractured tooth. The doctor performed a root canal and placed a crown over three visits. I appreciated that he took his time, made sure I was comfortable, explained and answered any questions I had. The result was a crown that looks just like the rest of the adjacent teeth, it looks amazing!!! It came out perfect! I’m beyond happy! I can not recommend Gentle Dental enough. If you care about doctors and assistants with knowledge, friendly professional staff and highly appealing facilities, do yourself a favor and establish your dental care here. You’ll be glad you did.

This dentist is fantastic from the service to the actual work on your teeth, I had a crown done by another dentist and it was not natural looking. Went to this dentist and the temporary is more natural than what the other dentist did. Can’t wait for my permanent crown. My husband loves them. They really give you all the information on your teeth. Billing is great they tell you right away how much benefits you have available so you can decide what you can afford to do. We love them. 2/8/22 – Received my new crown it is fantastic I can’t even tell the difference to my teeth. I just love ❤ this dentist.

Valerie C. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Gentle Dental for a few years now, and they have yet to disappoint. The service is outstanding, everyone is really friendly and great at their job. Unlike other doctors whose offices I have visited, your dentist is super clear on what’s going on, what they will be doing, and address any issues as they arise. They can also give recommendations to various specialists, if they feel that you require further assistance. It’s also the cleanest doctor’s office I have ever been in, and definitely the most high tech in terms of equipment. Try them out, you will not be disappointed.

Kubbi K. from Fresh Meadows, NY (Source: Yelp)


Gentle dentist is the best. Everyone on staff is very friendly. They provided netflix while I waited and when I was getting my deep cleaning they provided earphones and pandora to keep me calm and relaxed. The hygentist made sure I was comfortable and was empathetic to my pain. This is the best dentist office I have ever been too. I would highly recommend the gentle dentist they are literally service with a smile.

Doreen Defiore Gomez (Source: Facebook)


The best dentist I have ever experienced. Dr Andre is so gentle and kind in a quiet way. I’m afraid of going to the dentist. I have avoided it for years because I had a terrible experience with one a few years ago. I have a problem with the medications they use. He found the perfect medication for me. The office staff is also so kind and friendly. I would recommend this office to everyone.

Alfia A. from Fresh Meadows, NY (Source: Yelp)


First off I love Gental Dental! I have been one of their clients for about 4 years now. Now I must admit that 4 years ago I did not have to wait when I had an appointment. BUt now it seems, through the mass mailings, and advertisement there are more people aware of Gentle Dental and how great there service is, so yes it’s a bit of a wait now however not more than 30 minutes of a wait! I have had many things done. Root canals, replacement of all silver filing to white, a new front tooth, a extracted tooth, bone graphing and a implant in the future! I now bring my 5 going on 6 year old son to Gentle Dental he had 4 cavities, they have filled 3 out of 4 of them with no novacaine at all and he was a happy camper when he walked out of there! Not once was I called to the back!!# I love this place it saddens me to see negative reviews about Gentle Dental knowing the type of service that they ultimately provides to you! They have free WiFi, free tea, free apples, nutriment for you if you didn’t eat, they have a clean bathroom, they have a friendly staff, they are very efficient,the hygenist is very good Jessica, my dentist is very good Andre also, the female dentist is also excellent, all of the dental assistants are nice, friendly and clean , they do a fantastic job with color matching, and they have TVs in every room!

I had an appointment today and was very pleased with my treatment. The staff and professionals went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and explained clearly exactly what the cleaning, scaling, and antibiotic process entailed. Dr .Andre has been my doctor for many years and is extremely gentle and complete. In fact, I have absolutely no trepidation about seeing him for an extraction next week. Regarding finances, Gentle Dental offers a payment plan that is very feasible and eases my mind when it comes to payment of their services and treatments. If you are seeking a new dental practice, then Gentle Dental may be the place for you and your family!

Mark S. from Queens, Queens, NY (Source: Yelp)


I visited gentle dental as an emergency patient with a severe toothache . I would like to thank everyone at this office for help! Doctor was incredible, nurses were extremely helpful and very nice. I am usually terrified at the dentist office, but this time it was so much different ! Not to mention how modern, advanced and up to date is medical and dental equipment at this facility. This people trying very hard to make your visit pleasant and comfortable. I would like to thank every one at this office one more time.

Kim G. from Queens, Queens, NY (Source: Yelp)


A year ago I needed to find a dentist for an emergency chipped tooth that needed to be extracted. About a year later, finally have an implant in place of that tooth and couldn’t be happier. Of course, having found this office on Yelp, I was a bit skeptical. The office is very modern and clean. Staff is always nice and makes you aware of any out of pocket expenses before anything is done. The doctor is very careful and I never felt any pain during any procedures. Highly recommended and glad to finally have found a dentist I’m not afraid to go to.

Moshe I. from Queens, NY (Source: Yelp)


Every time I attend the wonderful establishment Gentle Dental, I am highly impressed by their utmost professionalism. I have never left disappointed nor do I ever foresee a situation where Dr. Andrey doesn’t conduct himself in a thorough and efficient manner. Highly recommend everyone to try Gentle Dental for a visit, you won’t be disappointed!

Laura K. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


I don’t write many reviews but this place really deserves it for their outstanding work.  My experience was beyond wonderful starting from the front desk staff and finally meeting wonderful dentists. During my consultation, my questions were listened to and answered in the most professional manner and I did not feel rushed.  I felt confident and being taken care of. The office is super welcoming and all of their equipment is brand new and really cool. Definitely a state of the art dental experience.  Highly recommend. Thank you Gentle Dental for my wonderful visit and keeping my pearly whites healthy.  I found a perfect dentist.

From the friendly greeting at the front desk to the checkout at the end of my visit, I love Gentle Dental and I never felt this way about going to the dentist prior to experiencing Gentle Dental. The team is awesome and they consistently deliver prompt, friendly and professional service. Hands down the best! I trust them wholeheartedly. They’re not trying to sell services you don’t need, but they are taking care of your needs and their chair-side manner is phenomenal. Hats off to the entire Gentle Dental Team: Thank you for your outstanding service and professionalism!

This was the best dentist experience i had so far, I went in for a cleaning but I ended up needing a deep cleaning, the staff was so so so nice and friendly, the name “Gentle Dental” fits them so well because my experience was just that , Cindy was very gentle and took her time and answered all my questions and concerns. I loved my experience with Cindy and I will be making her my permanent dentist!!!

From the moment you walk in the door, you are the priority. Honestly they were not the first dentists that I talked to, each claiming to be the best and most inexpensive implants you could get, three different dentists quoted between $57k to $65k. I got a home run on all accounts. Gentle Dental was under $15K for the same job and I never felt like I was revenue. My comfort, no pain and the procedure was there entire focus. I recommend them to my extended family and friends and my son and wife will be using Gentle Dental for all of our dental care.

S T. from Queens, NY (Source: Yelp)


I would highly recommend this dental facility. The office is new, clean, and workers are friendly. If you feel any anxiety about visiting a dentist, they do everything that can to alleviate that feeling. I had a very deep cleaning, and was very satisfied with the results. I also had two wisdom teeth removed. The dentist was gentle, and i didn’t feel any pain. My recovery was quick and easy,

Lindsay K. from Queens, NY (Source: Yelp)


Gentle. Absolutely. A calm environment, extremely clean space and friendly staff. Having had a lot of dental work as a teenager, including traumatic tooth extractions and braces, I am always nervous to visit a dentist. But I felt very well cared for by the staff at Gentle Dental. The cleaning was swift but not rushed and the hygenist was cheerful and frequently asked if I was doing okay. The dentist was calm and informative. The staff was also very kind and patient with my strong willed and emotional three year old. It’s so important that a child’s first dental appointment not be distressing and I’m glad her’s was not. Thank you Gentle Dental!

Its always a beautiful, clean, pleasant environment. The entire staff is super friendly from when you walk into the office to the Dental Assistants are professional and kind. Dental Hygienist are also very professional, kind and true to their name “Gentle”. Dentists are also amazing. My overall experience as a longtime patient of this facility is nothing short of excellent. I highly recommend Gentle Dental as an excellent facility and you too will have a wonderful experience every time.

Bon D. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


Gentle Dental is really really really amazing. I cannot really believe how comfortable I felt from the service to the attention of detail of what they do. They are so clear from the beginning from the check up to explaining thoroughly any issues and how it can be resolved. The staff and all the doctors were amazing from beginning to end. I went in for a for a check up and I ended up getting a root canal actually. They found a really bad cavity that I did not realize I had!! Thankfully they spotted it acted right away. At first I was nervous but, I didn’t even feel a thing and even when I got home it felt like nothing happened. People were so surprised I was perfectly fine after my root canal!!! It’s such a relief to have a dental office really make you feel at ease. They have screens for shows you can watch or even bring in your music to as they work. This place will be my dental office forever!!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU GENTLE DENTAL!!!!!
