Visiting a general dentist regularly for an oral exam and cleaning is essential to preserving your teeth and gums. In fact, seeing a dentist regularly can prevent more severe – and expensive – dental issues from occurring in the future.
Why You Should Go to the Dentist
A general dentist in Detroit is your best line of defense against severe gum disease and tooth decay. Without regular dental visits, you may not know when gingivitis or cavities are damaging your oral health. Fortunately, many dental problems are reversible when treated in a timely manner. If you’re ready to achieve your best smile, call our general dental office today to make an appointment.
What Can a General Dentist Do for Me and My Family?
General dentists provide a full scope of dental services instead of focusing on a particular branch of dentistry. As your primary dental care provider, a general dentist administers regular dental exams, cleanings, and routine procedures like tooth fillings. Our skilled general dentists work diligently to treat dental health problems before they cause severe damage. To learn more about our services and to make an appointment, give our dentist general practice a call.
The General Dental Services Available to You
Our general family dentistry practice offers a host of valuable dental services to both adults and children. The following are the general dentistry services currently offered by our experienced dentists.
How Often Should I Go to the Dentist for Cleanings?
One question we often receive from our patients is, “How often should I visit a general dentist near me?” The answer will be different for every person, but most healthy patients are advised to see a general dentist every six months. Those with complicated dental health problems will likely need to visit the dentist more often.
How Much Does a Dentist Visit Cost at Your Office?
Many patients have questions about cost when receiving dental care. The price of a dental visit will depend on the treatments administered and your insurance coverage. Please give us a call if you have questions about insurance or your payment options.
How a Dentist Keeps Your Teeth Clean
While brushing and flossing at home is an essential part of oral hygiene, they are no replacement for a professional dental cleaning. When a dentist or dental hygienist cleans your teeth, he or she will use a variety of instruments to clean hard-to-reach areas of your mouth. Regular cleanings can prevent harmful plaque and tartar from damaging your teeth and gums.
How Long Do Dental Visits Normally Last?
Routine general dentistry services, including checkups and cleanings, are typically completed within 30-60 minutes. However, extensive dental work can take several hours to complete. Give us a call if you have questions about the length of your dental visit.
How to Prepare for Your Dentist Appointment at Our Dental Practice
Being prepared for your appointment is a good way to alleviate dental anxiety. To make the paperwork process easier, have information about your current prescriptions, medical history, and insurance available. If you’re nervous upon arriving at our office, please let us know. Our staff members can often help relieve your anxiety.

Such an amazing staff all around. Kathy, Dr. Ascano and Dr. Duan are all so knowledgeable and kind. They made me feel so comfortable even though I was a pain to them and have a crazy fear of the dentist. Thank you so much!
Dr. Ascano is very caring and personable. He really makes a point to get to know his patients. The staff at Gentle Dental are VERY helpful too!
It took me over 20years to get to the dentist. If I would have known Dr. Ascano was out there I would have gone sooner. From the very first visit he took all my fears away and made me feel comfortable and at ease. I am actually excited now to go see him and his staff. His staff is amazing and make you feel like you are the most important patient they have. I highly recommend Dr. Asano to those, li…
I took my very nervous 6 year old here and they were amazing with her. They helped her see that going to the dentist is not that bad. The second time she went there she was still nervous and crying, but the dental hygienist was able to help calm her down and also allowed me to sit next to her which did not happen at our old dentist office.
The staff at Gentle Dental in Shelby Twp have been my dental professionals for over 20 years. The facility is extremely clean, the dentists are knowledgeable and friendly, Debi the dental hygienist is thorough and efficient, and the atmosphere is pleasant and inviting. If you’re looking for a new dental office, check them out. Dr. Steffens is a young female dentist that is sure to make young…
Very gentle and thoroughly explained all the things going on with my teeth. Itemized all costs and explained why I needed certain services. Created a game plan with me instead of dictated a plan. Wonderful staff!
Thank you Mr. Ward, Ms. B and Dr. Patel for giving me my smile back. Seeing my children’s faces light up was priceless.
I didn’t think I could do much with how bad my teeth have become but I am slowly getting better. They have even helped with getting me the best cost with my insurance.
As always, had a great cleaning and check up at Gentle Dental. Sarah is the best!
My first time in this office and Dr. Mangol did an awesome job with my root canal. I felt no pain at all through the procedure. Terry the hygienist was awesome as well. The whole team kenya, Michelle, holly were all great.

My experience was great today, and my 1st time here.

I’ll be back next week for an appointment and I definitely recommend this place to any new patients.
Dr.keller and Tammy great service you will love it
Dr. Duan fixed a tooth that I thought was going to cost me a lot of money, I never even thought of the way that she fixed it as I’m not a dentist… Anyways I came out of there with spending under 30 bucks. The staff is very nice and professional, they make you feel very comfortable and you can tell they appreciate you being there.
As a new patient I went to Gentle Dental at the recommendation of my wife. Going to a new dentist can be hard, but my experience at Gentle Dental has been great. They did not shame you for having bad teeth, but instead encouraged me and showed a great enthusiasm for fixing my problems. The first appointment was very thorough to find everything that needs attention. Later I had two teeth extracted…
Wow Dr. Duan…Totally hooked me up on care and price. Fixed a tooth I thought was going to involve way more work and money! Thank you Gentle Dental!!
Friendly staff with flexible appointments! Felt so welcomed as a new patient!
There are so many great reviews of this place and due to my skepticism, I was a little worried that they were fabricated but truly, they are not! I took my chances and went to the office to find that the staff were extremely friendly and kind. My tooth was super loose and I was terrified but they were so kind that it eased a lot of my panic. They were very courteous when it comes to not having den…
My hygienist Marilyn is the best. She’s such a nice person. Doctor Hanan is nice as well and thorough. The staff is friendly as well. They are what their name says that they are. Gentle!

I had not been to dentist in eight years because of bad experience somewhere else. I finally bit the bullet and made an appointment at gentle dental in Shelby. I feared that it had been so long I would be judged and told I was going to have all of my teeth ripped out! The whole staff was great and put me at ease, performed exam and X-rays quickly. Hygienist examined me and got me in for a cleaning…
Best dentist I’ve been to. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Dr. Duan is definitely the person to go to for exemplary dental work, and I highly recommend her. Worth the 30min commute.
Awesome place with a very caring staff. My family and I️ have been with Doctor Ascano for years now and we have never been disappointed with the service.
All around great visit. I had to go in on an emergency, and they were able to get me in within 24 hours. I had an unpleasant dental situation that had to be attended to, and Dr. Hanan, Tameka and the rest of the staff were friendly, courteous and they were wonderful in keeping me informed, and most of all comfortable.
This dentist is wonderful. They take out time explain and talk to you. They have great attitudes. They scheduled my appointments great and they call and text to remind you. They are so on point.

My children and I all go to Gentle Dental, the staff is amazing, the dentists are very kind and… Well, gentle.
