They say the perfect dentist doesn’t exist; they’ve never been to Gentle Care Dentistry. Dr. Luu is the best dental practitioner around. Scared of the dentist? Dr. Luu is so good you won’t even know she’s started, she once extracted my molar in two minutes flat. Want comprehensive care? Dr. Luu doesn’t just cover up cavities as they appear, she looks at the whole picture and takes proactive steps to ensure that your teeth are going to be healthy for years to come. In addition to just being the best at what she does, Dr. Luu is constantly improving. She always has a new gadget to improve my experience at her office and my overall health; she attends conferences and stays on top of advancements in her field. All in all, I can brag about Dr. Luu all day, but it comes down to this: if your teeth are important to you but you’re afraid of the dentist, stop looking and come to Gentle Care Dentistry where you will be cared for like you’re one of Dr. Luu’s kids.

After many different visits to many different doctors, and a raging fear of the dentist that was so bad we could barely get out of the car - this place is heaven. The staff is gentle, calm, funny, and willing to work with whatever fears you have. True professionals. Whether a dentist has hurt you in the past, it's been 10 years, or you can't stand the drilling - Gentle Care Dentistry will help.
They've been great about working in our budget, allowing payments, and helping keep our dental anxiety in check. I love this place.

If I can give 10 stars I would! I have had root canals before and each one was just an awful experience - 2 to 3 hour procedures and would feel the on and off pain of the drilling. This place is amazing!!! Words cannot express how happy I was to get my root canal treated here - 45 minute root canal and did not feel a thing!!! I definitely recommend this dentist.

I always dreaded smiling because my teeth were messed up. I never really went to the dentist. When I first came to this dentist I was nervous. After the work I got done I wanted to cry with happiness. I could smile again. She is not only caring and sweet but she takes her time. She did an amazing job and I'm so glad I chose this dentist.

I decided to come to this dentistry because Dr. Luu specializes in safe amalgam removals. She and her staff are very professional and kind. I never wait long and the doctors procedures is very unique, she uses a anesthetic wand that is painless and not frightening like the big painful needle you typically get when getting anesthesia in your mouth. Dr. Luu and her staff always make sure I’m comfortable and I’m happy with the service I’ve been receiving. I would recommend them to my friends and family.

Let me start off by saying they have the nicest staff and customer service of any dentistry I’ve come across. I chipped my tooth around 10pm and so I called them wanting to set up an appointment. Even though they were closed at the time by almost 4 hours they still managed to pick up the phone. Because it was an urgent repair they managed to fit me in after hours the NEXT DAY. When I went into the office they were just as nice in person as they were on the phone. They took my X-rays and fixed my tooth all in the same day for a reasonably inexpensive price. Making sure my tooth was as perfect as I wanted it to be the whole process was quick and painless. Thank you Gentle Care for making me feel comfortable.

I have WHITE teeth again...finally, thanks to Dr. Luu and her great staff recommending CORE Whitening system to me! After needing a new Dentist for some major work on my teeth, I chose Gentle Care Dentistry and have been nothing but pleased since; definitely smiling now!
De. Luu, Joanna and Ruth are fantastic and caring and always make me feel comfortable and despite the major work done, I am fine and don’t feel any pain or discomfort afterwards.
I would highly recommend Gentle Care Dentistry and Dr. Luu to anyone looking for the best dentist possible and take advantage of the CORE Whitening system too!


Root Canal Therapy

There are situations in a patient's life when they may be faced with the consideration of undergoing a root canal. Root canal therapy often brings forth fear in patients, when it is actually a simple, painless procedure when done correctly. It is typically the pain and discomfort of the infection or abscess that results in the need for root canal therapy that is dreaded, more so than the procedure itself.

Root canal therapy is often done when the dental pulp of a tooth has been affected. This can happen due to infection, an abscess, or a deep crack or cavity that reaches the nerves of the tooth and can cause pain for the patient. In many instances, the best course of action is to perform a root canal. This allows the patient to have the nerves and blood supply that is causing the pain removed from the tooth, while still keeping the natural tooth in place and avoiding expensive restorations and repair.

The process of a root canal is quite simple. The patient is locally anesthetized, and then Dr. Luu is able to drill a hole into the innermost portion of the tooth. This area is where the dental pulp resides, and is the part of the tooth that needs to be accessed to perform root canal therapy. Using very small, precise instruments, Dr. Luu then removes the dental pulp. The dental pulp houses the life-giving parts of a tooth: the tissues, the blood supply, and the nerves. Once removed, Dr. Luu will fill the tooth, and then bond a dental crown over the top. This is done to protect the tooth, as it will become weak and brittle after having the dental pulp removed. A dental crown is made of porcelain, and is fabricated to match the patient's existing teeth to blend seamlessly into their dental arch.

Dr. Luu understands that patients of all ages who's fearful of undergoing a root canal, and ensures them that the procedure itself will help to reduce the pain. Educating patients about the procedure is one of the steps Dr. Luu takes during the initial consultation and examination to help her patients better understand what happens during the treatment.
