Just completed my last of 5 appointments with Dr. Gonzalez. Had been putting off dental work for years and a recent tooth infection more or less forced me to do something. I couldn’t have picked a better dentist to take care of my dental disaster. The staff is amazing; courteous, friendly, efficient and very helpful. They answered all of my questions and addressed any concerns that I had. I couldn’t have asked for better service. Dr, Gonzalez is AWESOME!!! During all of my appointments, he explained everything he was going to do before starting to work on my teeth. I can’t remember any other dentist that I had been to that took the time to do that. Pain…what’s that? I had everything from simple fillings to root canals, crowns, and an extraction. Never felt a thing. He takes the time to make sure that you are comfortable and pain free during any procedure. Need a crown the same day? This is the place to go. On my last visit, I had 4 crowns and an extraction. It took two and a half hours, including the time to make the crowns, which I was very happy about. No need for a second visit to get my crowns. I walked out with 4 permanent crowns the same day. You can’t ask for better service than that. Didn’t like to smile very much before going here. Not afraid to smile anymore. Dr. Gonzalez and his staff putting a smile back on my face. Thank you so much!!!

This the best dental office ever!! Dr Gonzalez is such a great dentist and makes you feel comfortable with all procedures. From the first step I ever made into this office I felt so welcome. Lisa was my first person to talk to and she continues to be my friend and always offers to help. Debra also became my friend and also offers to help. You do not mind going to an office when you need dental help and being treated like part of the family. My teeth have always required a little extra help and Dr Gentry Gonzales and his wonderful staff make the call and visit one I don’t mind making. Many thanks for being the BEST!! ❤️

After putting it off for as long as possible (cuz really, who actually *enjoys* going to the dentist?), I finally stopped being a child and worked up the nerve to find a local dentist to frequent. The goal was to find one that was in our insurance network, and also one close enough to allow for mid-workday visits w/out causing too much interruption of the day. So, out of the blue I settled on Valleydale Dental, and apparently my hands are magic b/c I hit the jackpot. The facilities are very easy to find and are very clean and modernly-furnished – the patient area is basically a wide-open space, with “rooms” as you would imagine them (with a flat-panel TV in each, allowing you to try to mentally escape the sounds of soft drilling), but with the 4th wall for the door not exactly there. (Hard to describe, but a very neat setup with privacy not an issue at all actually.) The staff – hygienists, receptionists – are all incredibly personable and down-to-earth, never giving the impression that your visit is an inconvenience to their work schedule (which unfortunately happens quite a bit at doctors’ offices these days it seems). The actual DMD, Dr. Gonzalez, is as friendly as a doctor/dentist can be. The guy’s got a ridiculous bedside manner, and makes you feel like you’re just hanging out with a buddy, who happens to have his hand in your mouth. lol He’s absolutely forthcoming about everything he’s going to do and is doing, and is not pushy, dry, or nonchalant when it comes to identifying what he thinks next steps should be. He’s quick yet thorough in his work, and truly appears to care about doing a great job and with the least amount of discomfort to the patient. Fantastic dentist – could not be happier with the choice. So, if you’re looking for a good dentist in town, and are either on this side of town mostly, or don’t mind the trek from wherever you are, I *highly* recommend this place. I’d give them 6 stars if I could, that’s how impressed I am of the overall experience. I’m already working on recruiting my wife, and will probably hit up a few other family members as well before it’s all said and done. Seriously, give this place a look – trust me, you will thank the tooth heavens.

Dr. Gonzalez is easily the finest Dentist I’ve ever been to. The front desk staff is super friendly and get you checked in and in the chair quickly. You are greeted in the waiting area by the dental assistant who will be with you throughout your visit, which I think is a great touch. I was X-rayed, blocked, had my filling and was on my way out in under an hour with no issues. That’s incredible! Bottom line, you can’t go wrong with Valleydale Dental.

My whole family loves Dr. Gonzalez and the staff there at Valleydale Dental! He is very knowledgeable and professional and yet, is very laid back and makes you feel very comfortable. He’s done 3 crowns for me and I had them done the same day. I love his staff! They work with your schedule and you never wait long!

Trent E. from Auburn, AL (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Gonzalez is a remarkable dentist. He’s exact and precise with everything he does. I’ve been a patient of his for 8 years and I even return to his office although I live 2 hours away now – he’s that good of a dentist. If you live in Birmingham AL, you need to go. And his staff members are so friendly!

Christi Caldwell Johnson (Source: Facebook)


From the first time I stepped through the door at Valleydale Dental I felt so welcome and I certainly feel like part of this family now!! Dr Gonzalez is the best ever and the office staff are such a valuable part and are very caring. Lisa was my first person I talked to when I first entered the door a few years back and I knew this was the office for me. Debra is also a special friend and was another that made me feel welcome. Always willing to go above and beyond to help. I love this office and would not want to go anywhere else!

There aren’t many people who can say they love their dentist, but I am happy to say that I am such a person! Dr. Gonzalez and his staff are the best in Birmingham and have fully restored my belief in dentistry after an absolute nightmare experience somewhere else. I called the week of the fourth with an emergency root canal and they saw me that day so I wouldn’t be in pain. They have the technology to create your crown in-house as well which is amazingly convenient and so freaking cool to watch. It’s wonderful to go to someone you trust- my family highly recommends Valleydale Dental.

My father, who was born in 1934, liked to say that the only worthwhile inventions or developments to come along in his lifetime were air conditioning and painless dentistry. It was with this as context that I accepted his referral to the dental practice of Gentry Gonzalez, D.M.D,; Valleydale Dental Associates. Gentry Gonzalez and his staff offer truly exceptional service. The staff is consistently friendly and prompt, making an appointment is simple, and the dentistry itself is first class. Gentry is very personable and makes every effort to accommodate the needs of his patients. I highly recommend his practice.

I have just become a new patient of DR. GONZALEZ. I was referred by a friend in my neighborhood . lets just say I have never been more please with the level of professionalism by every one of the members of the staff at Valleydale Dental. I came the other day for a consult and cleaning , today I came back for my crown on a broken tooth … everything was Amazing … I am a customer for life

Kendee Martin Vaughn (Source: Facebook)


The best dentist in Birmingham! He is so helpful and explains everything he needs to do so you are clear on it. Assistants are all very friendly and really know their job. Front Desk is so helpful with insurance and billing and makes sure to remind you of your appointments. Dr Gonzalez fixed teeth for me that other dentists just wanted to pull. He is a lifesaver! Thanks so much guys!!

I have been going to Valleydale Dental for 7 years now, ever since I moved to Birmingham, and to be honest, Dr. Gonzalez and his staff are the best I’ve found out of the places I’ve lived. The staff is exceptionally friendly and caring. It’s actually a joy to go because I know they will greet me by name and genuinely ask about what’s going on in my life. I’ve had regular cleanings, fillings and one root canal, and everything has gone smooth. The root canal was pretty much painless and only took an hour or so and I was done with the whole process, no returning for another crown and fitting. Dr. Gonzalez can do the entire procedure in house, in one visit, which is awesome if you’re a busy person! The bottom line: Dr. Gonzalez and his staff genuinely care about their patients and visiting the office is NOT something I dread. Great dentist office!

Love going to see Dr. Gonzalez and his staff, they seem to go out of their way to make going to dentist as painless and as pleasant as possible- both in terms of physical comfort and timewise. Always ready for me when I walk in, never have to wait -often getting me in and out in under a half-hour. All of the staff are very friendly. Very clean and modern office and equipment.

Dentist. A word tied to an experience that I was raised to fear. I had a painful decaying wisdom tooth that was literally ruining my life. I knew that I had to go to the dentist eventually but was more than willing to procrastinate for as long as possible. Finally the day came, I asked colleagues for referrals, and D.M.D. Gentry Gonzalez came highly recommended. The experience was great. No surgery. No pain. No Stitches. I had a broken tooth extracted by a very nice staff, and a master of his craft dentist. I would recommend this facility to anyone and everyone.

Gentry Gonzalez, DMD is single handedly reversing my 25 year fear of going to the dentist. Yeah, I know techniques, equipment, medicine are all better these days; but bed side manner and attitude are as personal today as they ever were. I’d also like to commend the helpful, professional staff he keeps on board, especially Lisa and Lacey. By the way, I didn’t just come out of hiding for a routine cleaning, or even a filling. I had a bottom molar root canal, and it was essentially a painless breeze from injections through recovery. Three cheers for Valleydale Dental !!! ps. He crowned me the same day. All done in less than 2 hours.

I have a fear of going to the dentist. It’s a fear I have always had because of a bad experience as a child. There is going to come a time when you HAVE to go and believe me, when I finally did go to Valleydale Dental, I needed a lot of work. THANK GOODNESS I found Valleydale Dental! The staff made me feel so relaxed and comfortable. They didn’t ridicule me for waiting so long, just the opposite, they were so supportive. I LOVE THEM! Dr G is one of the BEST in the business. He makes sure you know what to expect (no surprises). I have referred many of my friends to this fantastic, amazing dentist. It’s the best thing I ever did going to Valleydale Dental. Now, I have a healthy smile and no pain thanks to Valleydale Dental! OH and did I mention I LOVE the STAFF. All of them. They work so hard to make you feel like your their only patient! My children and I are more than satisfied. 5 stars is not enough!

My husband and I have used Dr Gentry and his office for years now. They always remember us, even with it being 6 months in between visits. There is zero wait time. They have always been ready for me when I walk in the door. Making appointments is very simple here. And it’s always a quick and easy appointment to get my teeth cleaned.

Alaina F. from Birmingham, AL (Source: Yelp)


I would highly recommend Dr. Gonzalez and Valleydale Dental! The appointment booking is easy and there’s little wait time. The staff is friendly and professional as is Dr. Gonzalez and they all work very well together to get you in an out quickly. I had some fillings done, and there was no pain at all, not from the injections or the procedure. Dr. G is really good! The office is beautiful and comfortable. Make him your dentist today!

William T. from Birmingham, AL (Source: Yelp)


From the greeting at the front desk to the awesome staff throughout, this is by far the best dental practice I’ve ever used. I have always hated going to the denstist and can honestly say now that not all dentists are alike. Dr. Gonzalez and his staff nore not only fun to be around, but they are also very professional. Their dental work is top notch and I always feel like everyone knows me when I walk in the door. I was referred by a friend and would also recommend Valleydale Dental to anyone who is looking for a great dentist who makes ” going to the dentist”, not a bad thing!

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


Dr. Gonzalez’ and his staff provide impeccable dental care, including a range of services that meet my needs. From teeth cleanings to artistically designing and molding my teeth, I am always satisfied by the outcome. Valleydale Dental Associates are quick on their feet and I would highly recommend that anyone try them.

Valleydale Dental… I sang their praises on Yelp, and now I’m going to continue the ballad here on Google. If you’re searching around for a dentist, just stop – you’ve found your new place. It doesn’t matter how far away from the area you are in town, it’s worth every unit of CO your car’s going to pump out to get you there. I’ve been a patient at Valleydale Dental for about 18 months now, and each time I visit I’m consistently blown away by how organized, how friendly, how respectful, and how accommodating the staff is there. An appointment at 10am actually means 10am – there’s no “we scheduled a billion people at the same time to make sure we have clients for the day, and then we stagger their actual dental work” funny business. Every member of the team is personable, considerate, and genuinely interested and concerned about patients, and at no point will you feel like just another digit in the patient count; and Dr. Gonzalez continues to be the down-to-earth and extremely skilled DMD you’d hope for in a dentist. The work done is thorough and focused, and throughout procedures – whether they be routine cleanings or addressing more specific problems – the patient is made fully aware of the needs-to-happen, the doctor’s recommendations, and the approximate financial obligation involving them, and is always in control of what is ultimately performed. Seriously, I could do this all day – bottom line, the place is great, the people are great, the location is great. There’s no reason to not try Valleydale Dental if you’re in the market. Dental work is unnerving enough – take the guess work out of the logistics behind getting it. I’m absolutely convinced you’ll be glad you did.

6 years ago, I visited Dr Gonzalez at Valleydale Dental due to a tooth ache. I’ve been back every 6 months since! He and his staff are top notch people who give the best care around. Dr. Gonzalez and his amazing team of ladies go above and beyond every time to take care of me and my family. They have never forgotten my name, and always make me feel like I’m the most important person there when I walk in. They make me not hate visiting the dentist!

Sabrina S. from Birmingham, AL (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Gonzalez is the best dentist I’ve found in this area. The shots he gives never hurt. I’ve never had bruising. He chooses to never use metal for any reason. His staff is friendly and on point. They accept insurance as well as care credit for those of us who don’t have insurance. They work with you and never chastise over how much Mountain Dew you drink. I’ve also never had to have him go back and redo work that he’s previously done. He has a majority and a variety of in-house Services that a lot of Dentist do not offer. I highly recommend his professional services

Valleydale Dental is the best in the business. Had major dental work done today and Dr. Gonzalez got me in and out quickly and procedure went smoothly. He was calm, consistent, and you could tell he was very knowledgeable in his field. He was kind and patient to his dental assistant and patient with me while I had to take a break every so often during the procedure. To top it off – great staff! Any man that has had the education he has had, won the awards he has won, and especially gives of his time and efforts to the armed forces and serves humanitarian missions in another country, is a man of good character. And THIS is they type of dental practice I want to be a part of. (read his bio) I would highly recommend Dr. Gonzalez and his team.

Amy Brennan (Source: Facebook)


Dr. Gonzalez is a knowledgeable and professional, yet he makes you feel relaxed along with his staff. He has done 3 crowns for me…each one done within a couple of hours at the most. I love his friendly staff and Debra is a wonderful hygienist! I highly recommend him!

My daughter had a tooth injury that was pretty traumatic. I called Valleydale Dental, and they had her in the chair as quick as I could get her there. Dr. Gonzalez soothed our angst by assuring us she would be fine. Within 30 minutes, he had her smile looking like nothing had ever happened! We love the staff and Dr. G!

I’ve been a patient here for a few years and each time I visit, the experience is awesome! I’m typically in and out in 30 minutes for basic cleanings. The staff is always so friendly and personable. My schedule changes a lot so I have to reschedule appointments sometimes. This has never been a problem. (Thanks for being so patient, Lisa!) I would certainly recommend Valleydale Dental Associates!

Heather Chavers (Source: Google)


My family loves Valleydale Dental Associates! The atmosphere is clean, comfortable & professional. The staff is very friendly and always willing to work with you. As a mother, I appreciate how they work with my family to get us all in at one time. This is very convenient and they are very prompt. I would recommend Valleydale Dental to anyone!!

Today was my first visit with this clinic and I absolutely LOVED this office! The people were very sweet and genuinely nice. I hadn’t had a cleaning in three years due to my fear of dental appointments and they made me feel right at home. Their office is very clean and open and Dr. Gentry was very professional. I will definitely be coming back!

Daphne Jones (Source: Facebook)


I am amazed with Dr. Gonzalez and his staff. All of my life I have dreaded going to the dentist. Now I look forward to my visits. It’s like going to visit with good friends and I am very confident with the work they do. If you want to be loved and respected just use these folks. They go the extra mile to help you feel relaxed and confident. They are awesome.

Don K Bonner (Source: Facebook)


Dr. Gentry Gonzalez is a perfectionist when dealing with his patients and their dental needs. From the time you walk into his office you feel welcomed by his staff with their courteous smiles and attitudes. I’ve had nothing but great experiences with his office! I highly recommend you to visit Dr Gonzalez for your dental care…you’ll be happy you did!

Who would ever think you could walk away from a dental visit feeling so good. I’ve used 3 dentists in the Birmingham area and always been disappointed. Until now. I had an infected cut on my gum. I needed a dentist. I searched for reviews and found Valleydale. Was scheduled the next day despite being a new patient and didn’t wait 5 minutes before being seen. Dr. Gonzalez is personable, knowledge, authentic and very careful not to cause discomfort. I returned after the infection cleared for a cleaning and they needed to numb the area around the cut gum to clean under that wound. I’d not ever had a needle in my mouth and was so tense I could have squeezed diamonds from a lump of charcoal. But no need. I never felt ANYTHING. Not even a pinch when he said I might feel a pinch. The staff is as important as the dentist, as far as I’m concerned. At Valleydale, they’re friendly, professional, and the Lacy, the hygienist, quietly cleaned my teeth without error or any discomfort. And laughed at my jokes. A very good experience. I’ll be back to get my first tiny cavity filled without any fears whatsoever.

I have been going to Valleydale Dental since 2006. It has been one of, if not the best dentist office I have ever been to. I found them completely by accident but I sure am glad I did. You are treated like family from the minute you walk in the door and they have always done great work on me. I would and do recommend Valleydale Dental to anyone who needs good dental care. (On a side note, Dr. Gonzalez administers the most pain free anesthetic that I have ever experienced.)
