I came to Dr. Nathanson for my first time in April of 2022 after two years of avoiding all dentists. I had a bad experience with a different oral surgeon two years ago when my screw-in implant had broke only a few days after receiShow moreving it! Also the cement that covered the screw completely eroded away within a few months, leaving a big hole that exposed the top of the screw and was hard to clean when food got stuck or was lodged in there. After waiting two years with a chipped implant and exposed screw, I finally set an appointment to see Dr. Nathanson as I did not want to go back to the other oral surgeon. She kindly took the time to locate and contact a representative from the implant provider that was originally used in order to restore my implant. After a few appointments, my teeth are finally where I want them to be because of Dr. Nathanson! The sigh of relief after having wasted thousands of dollars at the other oral surgeon and then spending a few more for the restoration was so satisfying. Not only that, but Dr. Nathanson also takes care of all kinds of necessary and preventative dental care, so I was even able to get a cleaning, fillings, and a crown from a root canal replaced when I first saw her back in April. I am so relieved and glad that I found Dr. Nathanson. I trust her with my teeth after all that she did the past three months. This was a lesson learned for me to take better care of my teeth, and I look forward to especially with a dentist I trust who I definitely will make sure to book all my future cleanings and dental work with!
I have been a patient of Dr. Nathanson for over 6 years. I still remember the first comment I said to her during my first visit, Gentle Care Family Dentistry is indeed an appropriate name for her clinic. For someone like me who Show moreis afraid to see a dentist (or even a doctor), she made me feel comfortable and she's very gentle when she's working on my teeth. She's thoughtful and caring - always check on me whether I'm doing OK or f I'm in pain. She always make sure that I would have a good experience while getting the work done on my teeth. Dr. Nathanson is the only dentist that I can trust. I would also like add that her staff are all friendly, Adriana (Dr. Nathanson's dental assistant) is a wonderful addition to her team.

Thank you for helping me out again, dear Dr. Nathanson. You are very nice, and Ronna likes making you laugh. Best to you, Jeff
I am a longtime patient & speak very highly of the professional, courteous care I receive each & everytime I have any needs whether routine or emergency.
Dr. Nathanson is always conscientious and thorough with all her examinations. I went in for a cleaning recently and they found a small cavity and were able to fill it that very day. Because they caught it so early they did not have to use anesthesia and I was able to have it filled and continue on with my day without a numbed jaw.
Happy to be back.
