The ladies at the Gilroy Dental Associates are AWESOME! Especially Laura. She is sweet, great personality, friendly, and caring. Laura helped me with my crowns and they look AWESOME!! Dr Vuppala is also great! Had to have a root canal and had never heard anything good about them. Dr. V performed my first root canal and I walked away with NO pain, not even after the Novocaine wore off!! I HIGHLY recommend this team of associates. My entire family goes and we are a bunch of chickens when it comes to our teeth, but they have made the dental experience good!

I can honestly say I had a wonderful experience from a very caring and professional staff. I hadn’t seen a dentist for at least 5 years and I felt well cared for and respected. The hygienist (whose name was Diane I think) cleaning was done by hand thoroughly and gently. She explained every procedure perfectly. The front office person whose name I forget was very professional as well. She thoroughly explained the billing and was great at finding me my next 2 appts. It’s rare to feel comfortable at a place that normally evokes anxiety. I can’t recommend them enough!

Kellie R. from Morgan Hill, CA (Source: Yelp)


The first time I saw Dr. Vuppala I had a dental emergency. He fit me in right away and made me feel comfortable immediately. His entire staff was wonderful, but Veronica took especially great care of me. They both went out of their way to meet my needs and I couldn’t be happier. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my smile.

It’s been a few years since I had seen a dentist and was nervous for my exam but as soon as I was taken back for my exam I knew I was in good hands. Karla is extremely knowledgeable and friendly! She took her time to go over everything with me to make sure I understood all my dental needs. Dr V took good care of me during my exam, as he was also very friendly and more than willing to discuss any of my questions or concerns. I couldn’t have ask for a better dental experience. I highly recommend this office for all your dental needs. They do it all!!

Jolie M. from Gilroy, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love everything about this dental office, very professional on all ends and Dr. Vuppala is very caring and attentive.  I’ve had quite a bit of work, and never any pain and I’m getting wonderful compliments on my smile.   I live 2miles away but am more than happy to make the drive for the wonderful care.

Mariko M. from Morgan Hill, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have visited this dentist for many years, and the staff in this office are all friendly and keep the office always clean and comfortable. And Dr. Vuppala is always extremely kind and in polite manner with explanation of appropriate treatment policy and Dr. Mancuso gave me a sense of trust by clear explanations and excellent performance on my treatment (surgery, this time), so I could receive treatments with peace of mind. Thank you.

My first time visiting Dr. Vulpalla (sorry if I misspelled) he was great and upon entry I was greeted by the friendly staff. My hygienist Leslie was completely amaaaazzzing. She made sure I was comfortable while doing x-rays and during my cleaning she was conscientious of my discomfort with dental work. She was constantly ensuring I was doing okay. I can’t wait to go back for my ortho consult. I highly recommend going here and to leslie if you struggle with finding the right dental office for you.

Every time I go to Gilroy Dental Associates. From the moment I walk through the doors I feel at home. From the greeting at the front desk though out my routine check up or exams to the desk checking me out for my next appointment, along with the have a nice day exit. Gilroy Dental Associates, knocks it out of the park every time in making a patient feel good about the “going to the dentist experience” a good one. I give 5 stars to the entire team.

Eric F. from Salinas, CA (Source: Yelp)


The staff are friendly and professional. The dentists and hygienist continue to be excellent. Everything about the office is top notch. I have been getting great dental care here for many years and will stay with them for the foreseeable future. I highly recommend them to anyone in need of excellent dental care.

Joeline P. from Gilroy, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. V and his staff are great! I feel the dental hygienist are outstanding and really are the backbone of this office. I always feel comfortable and at ease when my teeth are being cared for. I especially enjoy that Nancy Torres, she is a hoot! And so professional. It’s as though I am being cared for by a family member; you just know you’re in good hands when you are in her chair. Now, I have never had major work on my teeth, so I can’t speak to that.

Lisa W. from Gilroy, CA (Source: Yelp)


Gilroy Dental Associates is like a well oiled machine.  From the second you walk in the door the personnel is welcoming and warm.  We have our favorite hygienist (Cheryl), but there are many wonderful hygienists to choose from.  We have just had a perfect experience with Dr. Vuppala and would recommend him to any one of our family members or friends.

Angelina G. from Gilroy, CA (Source: Yelp)


Super welcoming and helpful. They genuinely want what’s best for your teeth! I’m extremely nervous when it comes to going in for any dental check-ups but I’ve gone through multiple fillings,a wisdom tooth extraction, along with the removal of my old brackets for braces,to starting a completely new journey with Invisaligin just with this clinic alone. It has also been years since I’ve gone to the dentist from the fear of having another terrible experience.. Definitely not going anywhere different anytime soon.

Rizza-Belen D. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


Always amazing with Dr. Vuppala! I been seeing him since 2013 at the San Jose location. I have referred many friends and family and will keep referring. I’ve never liked going to the  dentist, but I seriously enjoy my visits here each time! He is so courteous, friendly and professional! He always makes sure his clients are taken care of and satisfied with the service! I always enjoy watching shows/movies during a lenghty visit 🙂 He also takes the time to explain a procedure and why something certain needs to be done. He definitely has an eye for a good smile and is a perfectionist when it comes to his work. And on top of that, his whole staff is amazing! I’m so glad to have seen him in Gilroy when I visited! Thank you Dr. Vuppala!!! You are beyond 5 stars!

Dr. Vuppala and the entire staff are amazing. I always receive beyond exceptional dental care and everyone in the office is extremely professional and friendly. I used to hate going to the dentist before Dr. Vuppala and now I love it! You can definitely tell the entire team is well respected and enjoys working there. I am very thankful to them for making all of my dental care always such a relaxed experience.

Rick M. from El Dorado Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


What a great practice! I have been coming to this practice for several years, and it is a great place to get my dentistry! The staff are friendly and helpful, the hygiene team is great, they are always diligent and tell me what is happening with my gums, and each of the doctors are very attentive, and focused on me as a patient. I drive here from San Jose because they really take care of me!

Awesome, Positive Experience!!! True professionals with exceptional service!! Always have had a positive outcome. Recently visited for crown replacement with Dr Vuppala! He did his regular exceptional work assisted by Daisy and Veronica. They both teamed up to remove a screw broken off in the crown base that happened before I came in. EXTREMELY DIFFICULT and without success would have been major “work around,” but they succeeded!! (Much to my relief!!) Would strongly recommend them for anyone NOT SATISFIED with their present dental work, and looking for an alternative. They would be a MAJOR UPGRADE for you!!

Daniel M. from San Martin, CA (Source: Yelp)


I made an account to leave this review. I hadn’t seen a dentist for 6 years, mostly because of fear of dentists. I chipped the entire side of my molar off one day and needed to see someone, I opted for them, glad I did. The whole time they made sure I wasn’t uncomfortable and were very respectful and personable to me. It also went a very long way that I was never made to feel shame for the neglected state of my teeth – they gave things to me straight though. Probably the biggest compliment I can give is that I walked in with extreme anxiety but by the time things were done with drilling I was already calm enough that I could have possibly fallen asleep. Absolutely helped fix a large part of my fear of dental visits. There’s nothing critical I can think of about my experience. If I wasn’t moving out of state I would be a life long client. I have already recommended my family to them, so I think that says something too.

Scott J. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


Way late in life, a wisdom tooth previously regarded as unproblematic decided to make a move. It soon damaged the molar in front of it, and my previous dentist didn’t catch it when I complained of cold sensitivity. (In fact, he fixed the wrong tooth.) That office’s oral surgeon recommended a very costly and invasive process involving extraction of both the wisdom tooth and the molar, and later installing an implant to replace the molar. A 2nd-opinion consult at Stanford Medical School cost me hundreds of dollars and yielded the same recommendation. So before going through all that, I decided to check with Dr. Jerry Mancuso at the conveniently-located and thoroughly-modern Gilroy Dental Associates. He’s an ex Navy doc –always a good indication of practicality and solid work that gets the patient back to normalcy quickly. Sure enough: On reviewing my situation, Dr. Mancuso felt there was a decent chance that the molar could be saved, with a crown instead of an extraction-and-eventual-implant. If so: less costly, quicker recovery, and way less fraying of my nerves. If not, well then we’d deal with it. But neither of the two other oral surgeons I’d previously consulted had even raised the possibility of saving the molar. Sold. And Dr. Mancuso could not have been more adept. The wisdom tooth popped right out with his skilled encouragement, and then Dr. Linga Vuppala joined to make quick work of crowning the damaged molar. Today, after a couple more visits for routine cleaning and a cracked-tooth fix, I’m impressed by how everything done in this clinic is a well-choreographed team effort that maximizes my well-being and respects my finances. Great group. I feel very fortunate to have found them right here in Gilroy. Everyone is pleasant too, with abundant humor… I’d say “smiles all around” but that’s a pretty worn-out dentist-office pun by now . Yet it’s true.

Gilroy Dental Associates is highly recommended by me. I truly love their passion to connect with their clients and give them the dental care that they need. I can really tell they take pride in their work and really go to the Max that you leave satisfied. Out of the 6/7 years I’ve been going I’m safe to say that not once I left unhappy. All the girls there from front to back of the office are really amazing and welcoming. I’ve been serviced from everyone there including Veronica, Daisy, Lilia, Karla, Ashley, Irma, Mari, and of course Dr. Vuppala, who is such a great doctor. I can really say this is the best Dental office I’ve ever been to. Always making me feel welcomed and at ease. Most offices have such long waiting periods, but I’m averaging at maybe 5-10mins waiting. Like I said, excellent service! I highly recommend this dental office to everyone, even if you don’t live near by, it’ll be worth the drive, trust me!

LOVE, love this entire office. Excellent CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! The entire staff is very friendly, Irma and the girls are AMAZING and my family has been a part of Gilroy Dental for about 20 years. Beautiful office, and very happy environment. Cheryl is a wonderful hygienist. Dr. Voopaula provides excellent care. Pain free and very comfortable. I highly recommend this office. Veronica is a huge asset to this office and is a jack of all trades. I highly recommend this dental care. Ginger Sotelo

Just when you thought going to the dentist would be scary, Gilroy Dental Associates would make you think otherwise!! Dr. Vuppala and his girls are genuinely welcoming to me and my family. I previously was in the care of South Bay dental in San Jose, which now under a whole different ownership. They were okay but very unorganized and always had me waiting too long. Every time I walk into Gilroy Dental Associates I feel like I’m in and out! At the same time I feel that the front desk girls really wanna make sure I’m properly taken care of ! Veronica and Laura go above and beyond to make sure I’m fully comfortable on the chair, and Daisy would have me cracking up laughing making me forget I’m even at a dentist office, and Ashley, I gotta is probably one of the sweetest scheduler I’ve ever met. She knows exactly what she’s doing. I love it there and I highly recommend it to all locals and out of town folks!

Lejla N. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Vuppala deserves 10 stars +. He is so detailed, a lot of understanding and patience. Simply everything a 11 year old, who was extremeley nervous to get root canal and folings done, needs. I am transfering my younger daughter to him, myself and my husband. He deserves my services.

Lizz R. from Monterey, CA (Source: Yelp)


The staff are amazing! I have had a lot of dental experiences and by far this one has been the best. I have never left a cleaning feeling like a two year old who has just been lectured about properly flossing. I used to dread going to cleanings and the inevitable ‘talk’ that would occur afterwards. Now? I have no hesitations and tend to leave feeling like I’m doing good with my teeth. I would not leave this dental office even if my insurance stopped being accepted.

Brianna C. from Gilroy, CA (Source: Yelp)


You walk into this dentist and feel like you are apart of there family. They know exactly who I am they don’t make me wait long to be helped. On top of that most dentist offices can not be flexible this dentist office was able to squeeze me in for a cleaning after I had my crown put in within 5 minutes. Ruth the hygienist is just the sweetest person. I would definitely recommend her for cleanings. The facility all around is very clean and well maintained. This will definitely be where I will go for years to continue.

I love you guys! I was in so much pain and you were able to squeeze me in.. same day!! OMG, huge relief! My regular dental group was unable to see me until a 1.75 days later which was no good as I was suffering big time. I am already in process with them on an implant with another issue I faced last year. I wish I was smart to contact you then because I know that you would have seen me sooner. I was suffering for almost a week then… I’m too loyal! Anyways, once I have the implant portion completed, I plan to switch things up. I talked to my family and they want to come to your office as well. Thanks so much for taking me in and taking care of me yesterday!!

Sam W. from Gilroy, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming to this dental office since 2010, and couldn’t be happier with the service and the quality of work. I have been worked on by more than one dentist at this office, and all of them have gone out of there way to explain what they are going to do and why. It’s comforting to be shown the x-ray and to have the dentist explain what the problem is. The front office staff is also very friendly and conversational. They also play movies for you while they are working on your teeth, which helps to make the horrible chore of getting your teeth filled a little bit less miserable. Overall, I highly recommend this dentist if you are looking for a new one.
