Great Staff..really take good care of my handicap father and my self…. – E. Kramer

I have always been terrified of the dentist, but Dr. Martin helps me through it. He offers a mild sedation option which I have used with him for years. This last visit however I tried it without sedation and everything went well. Dr. Martin and his staff are wonderful and kind. I highly recommend them. On top of their kind and gentle approach, Dr. Martin is OUTSTANDING when it comes to fixing dental problems in the most appealing way. You would never know that I have had a cavity with his beautiful filling work. He is very skilled in his craft. – S. Forsgren

My experience was excellent. Dr Hooper was professional, kind, understanding of my concerns. He was extremely quick and the procedure was virtually painless, he was also able to work me into his schedule the same day I had a problem. Having experienced some “unfortunate” dental experiences in my past it was as good as it could have possibly been. In addition to his dental skills, he is a very funny and entertaining man. I would, and have recommended him to others. – L. Gerald

My dental team is the best! They have taken great care of me throughout having to treat a weird infection, root canal, and take great care in making sure my crown is very comfortable… All while I have been pregnant & through a 2 month period where we had some unexpected circumstances. Dr. Groy, Connie, and all of the assistants have gone above & beyond and it is greatly appreciated! – I. Celeste

I have never had a dentist care so much about me! He personally called me to check on how I was doing after a root canal….I was floored! He is such an amazing guy and dentist! The staff is so friendly and caring! You will make friends with everyone there! I LOVE Dr. Martin and his staff! – A. Colwell

My wife Virginia and I have been patients of this dental facility for 15 plus years. Dr. Blazak was the dentist at the time(He was awesome!) and we miss him. Dr. Cooper and Dr. Martin are also both personable and excellent dentists. Connie at the front desk is the Anchor of this operation (bar none) and is why we have stayed loyal to this facility(we will miss you too Connie!) – P. Cunningham

I have been going to Gentle Dental for several years now. I chose the practice for the name. I have had bad experiences with dentist but have put my faith in this practice and couldn’t imagine going elsewhere. Sunny is an awesome hygienist and I’m always in and out for my cleanings. Connie is always a joy! Dr. Groy and Julie are a team that can’t be beat! Love love love them! Thanks everyone!! – L. Poole

Dr. Hooper and his staff were very flexible. I was able schedule a last minute appointment to evaluate my condition. He even recommended other medical professionals. I am new to area and I value the advice he provided. – A.N.

Dr. Hooper is a fantastic dentist. My family and I have been patients for almost 20 years. He is great with kids, and works as pain-free as possible. Highly recommend. – J.V.

Dr. Hooper and his staff are all first class. I can’t say enough about the professionalism they all deliver. A visit to the dentist is typically a bit stressful and frowned upon. The staff here curbs all this immediately and throughout the visit. – Todd. T.

What a wonderful staff & Dr. Hooper is very personible. I had a complete mouth restoration which included some implant crowns. Dr, Hooper & Maryland were just awesome. I felt like I was with friends, and after 6 hours I was still smiling. Very relaxed & professional!! I will definetly recommend Dr. Hooper to all of my friends & family. – D. Taylor

I just had a phenomenal experience at this location. Karen at the front desk was exceptional. She put me at ease right away over the phone during scheduling. I’m terrified of getting any dental work done so hearing a soothing voice on the phone got me in the door. My babysitter fell through at the last minute and the practice was just fine with me bringing my 6 month old daughter. Dr. Martin was kind, patient and explained everything to me in a clear way and I felt confident to make decisions for further care based on his recommendations. Kate cleaned my teeth and she was understanding about my anxiety and completely fine with my baby being in the room. I will absolutely be getting my dental care from this office again! They do take Tricare. ~Dani M.

I absolutely could not have asked for a better dentist referral from my friends and I could not have had a better experience with Dr. Hooper and his staff. My x-rays were done and processed quickly, brought into the room and even shown to me.

I have actually avoided seeing a dentist for two years due to several years of horrific experiences in the area, and being turned away by other dentists because I have had previous cosmetic work done.

However, Dr. Hooper was different. He was personable, very friendly, and had a calming, professional, and confident way about him. I have 20 years of extensive dental history, and I am only 29 years old. He answered all questions I had, and calmed all concerns I had. He went so far as to give me genuine hope that it is possible to fix my cosmetic dental mistakes, and that he is happy to do the work, regardless of the fact that someone local was the initial person to do the work. – C.
