This is the only place in town if you are looking for a caring, consciousness and well meaning doctor and staff. My first experience with Dr Juarez was super amazing he offered to open his practice during his off hours because of my situation and gave me his cell so we could stay in touch until he was able to manage my infection and pain. Not sure how many dentist do this because this is my first experience with any dentist where I get his cell phone number. Since then I have had routine work, cleaning and a tooth removed and it is always a great experience to walk into his office. The staff is super friendly and caring always offering you something to drink. While the staff is a real pleasure to work with Dr Juarez is kind, gentle and a great listener who truly enjoys talking and interacting with his patients. He is super cool and a great dentist as well. If you are looking for a pain free, great dentist with an awesome staff that makes you feel relaxed and cared for I highly recommend Gentle Dentistry, Efren N. Juarez DDS. I guarantee this will be the best and last dentist you will need. You will be surprised when he calls you after some major procedure just to see how you are doing.

Dr. Juarez is the best! I along with my entire family, wife and two kids, have been coming to his dental office for several years now. There is no other dentist in the San Gabriel Valley that I trust. Dr. Juarez is super gentle with your teeth and does the job correct the first time around. I recommend, Gentle Dentist if you looking for that trust worthy dentist in San Gabriel Valley area. 2 thumbs up service. Thank you Dr. Juarez and his friendly staff for all that you do.

Dr Juarez is AMAZING. My teeth look sooo good. I have had dang near every service you could have done by Dr. Juarez. I had several cavities filled, two root canals, an extraction, professional teeth whitening, and bonding! I should mention I am a wimp when it comes to tooth pain… and I had gone to three dentists over the past several years that were just not able to help me. Dr. Juarez and his staff are patient, knowledgeable, and most of all? Kind. I won’t trust my teeth to anyone else and I consider it such a blessing to have found him on a simple google search. And while I recommend him very highly as a Dentist? He is equally recommended as a friend. Thanks Doc!

I’ll start saying Dr Juarez is a down to earth guy you can talk to. He really cares about his patients. He even gives you his home and cell number to call him just in case (anytime any day). I found this GENTLE DENTIST after a week asking for referrals for an HONEST dentist (something it seams to be extinct). I was desperate ’cause I had visited another dentist in Beverly Hills (90211) and he told me I had 2 big cavities that for sure will need root canals (I must say I’m worst than a little kid with needles and dental procedures) so he freaked me out. For the record, before that visit I’ve never had in my life more than 3 fillings. So I sought a second opinion and that’s how I met Dr Juarez (THANKS GOD). From my arrival to departure the service was excellent (Anna-front desk- is so kind and also Manuela-doctor’s assistant). Seen right on time, no waiting around. Felt like I was at a spa…relaxing music, comforting environment, very courteous staff. The best thing: he took his own x-rays and told me in his experience I won’t need the RC but he confirm once he start his job there… and guess what!? I didn’t need them!!! He saved my 2 molars working calm and meticulously. Cant beat the quality of his work and his prices!! (I don’t have dental insurance). I drove 22 miles just to see him and will do it again! I will refer everybody to him!! (if you have any inquiry about him please contact me).

Dr. Juarez lives up to its motto “the gentle dentist“. Everything about his practice has been good starting with first contact with Linda to schedule my appointment was very easy and accommodating. Dr. Juarez is very gentle and takes his time and make sure I was very comfortable without any problems during the work. Of course Dr. Juarez would explain in detail what he was going to do and would answer all questions I had thoroughly as did everybody else in his practice. Of course I cannot leave out his assistant who is very kind and efficient. I would highly recommend this practice!

I’d like to start by saying I haven’t always been a fearful dental patient.  I have developed into one after one bad experience.  I was searching for a dentist with patience,  one who would believe me when i would say I felt pain during treatment.  Dr JUAREZ  is indeed the answer to my prayers.  I never felt rushed during my appointment and is sensitive to my gestures of discomfort and increasing sedation without me asking. I recently  had a dental emergency  and Dr JUAREZ treated me at his office at dawn on a Sunday morning,  then  again at midnight.  He is very dedicated to his patients and I love him for that!

One terrific professional and person to confidently leave yours and your families teeth health to. Dr. Juarez is very honest, straight forward gentle dentist who will not try to tell you that you need unneccessary treatments. Friendly and attentive staff with high quality of service. Don’t waste your time going any where else. After countless jobs changes and insurance plans, I’ve experience a wide range of dentists Dr. Juarez is the best. Appointments are easy to get and the wait time is minimal. My kids just love him.

I’ve been going to Dr. Efren for the past 12 years and now my entire family has him as their dentist. Dr. Efren and his staff always make sure I’m comfortable with the procedure and they take the time to explain my options for work to be done and payments. Highly recommend if you’re looking for reliable and professional staff. Also they give you an apple on your way out!

I have been a patient of Dr. Juarez for the past few years now and every visit is just as pleasant and comfortable as the last. I feel that I am in capable hands, treated like a family member, and nothing goes unnoticed. No question is too small. If you have a set of teeth, or even one tooth, then do yourself a favor and visit this dental office. Did I mention the staff? Well trained and just as friendly as the big boss. Looking forward to my next visit, as always.

I had a six month dental check up with Dr. Juarez, aka the Gentle Dentist. The atmosphere there is very soothing. Staff always greets everyone with a bright smile and genuine interest. Dr. Juarez greets you as a friend. Dr. Juarez and Manuela, the dental assistant, work as a cohesive team and are very concerned for your comfort. Dr. Juarez, Ana and Manuela have been my dental care team for years and I would never consider changing!

Dr. Juarez and his staff are very professional and observing COVID19 protocol. Prior to entering his office I was met outside, temperature taken by staff and questionnaire was given and signed. The examine of my aching tooth was evaluated and it was determined by Dr. Juarez that minimal evasive action was required to alleviate my tooth pain. I’m very happy with the service I received and recommended Dr Efen N. Juarez for you dental needs.

Dr Juarez is very caring checking every aspect of my mouth and explaining what he is doing and why. All of His staff members are very kind and gentle. I also appreciate his honesty and not trying to gauge me with high prices. Although I have insurance, I still pay a portion of my services and the prices are reasonable. I highly recommend Dr Juarez to all my friends and family. THANK YOU Gentle Dentist!

Growing up a trip to the dentist meant pain and fear but thanks to Dr.Juarez my visits to the dentist are at peace and gentle! He is very professional and welcoming, at times I even forget that I am client due to his friendliness and and his awesome staff that always remember who you are. I’m very thankful I was recommended to Dr. Juarez for now and forever he will be my dentist. I have always had a fear about the dentist and now thanks to Dr. Juarez and his great staff going to the dentist is never a fear.

I have been a client since 2002. Dr. Juárez and his staff always provide professional and friendly service. He takes excellent dental care of both young and old. My 5 years old daughter looks forward to her dental follow ups and is always very compliant and comfortable during her visits. I’m very thankful Dr. Juárez and all his staff take their time to make every visit a pleasant experience.

My children and I have been coming to Dr. Juarez for the last 3 years, him and his staff are amazing he takes time to greet you and talk to you and explain what work needs to be done. My children love coming here, the staff makes you feel like family. We recently moved, it is a drive but I will continue coming to Dr. Juarez, I highly recommend it.

The doctor and his staff are extremely professional and they all have a great attitude. Every time I visit his practice it feels like seeing a bunch of old friends.  Dr. Juarez and his staff do a great job and are detailed oriented (which is awesome!). I 100% recommend him to all of those who need dental work done!

Dr. Juarez is a very sweet, relatable, knowledgeable, gentle and caring dentist. My husband and I have been loyal patients of Dr. Juarez for many years and are very happy with his services. He always goes out of his way to assure we get the quality we need and appreciate. Thank you, Dr. Juarez and staff.

Today was a great day. I took my twin girls ( 3 1/2 years old) and they were a bit scared and didn’t want to cooperate, Dr. Juarez and his staff made them feel comfortable enough for them to agree to have an exam without crying and complaining. After that, they got excited and are still talking about their visit to the dentist and how they got toys, toothbrushes and little toothpastes for both. I’m so happy to visit Dr. Juarez anytime, he really makes you feel like family! And he’s fully bilingual, which is a plus since we don’t speak English to the girls at home!
