A Rich History
of Exceptional Dental Care

Dr. Phil Gentling first opened this dental office's doors in the 1940’s, establishing a foundation of outstanding professional skill and customer service that has continued to flourish to this day. We look forward to many more years of caring for patients and families!

Carly T., Rochester, MN

"Gentling Dental has been around since 1948 for a reason. Dr Philip Gentling built this practice into the successful dental clinic it is today. He was my first dentist as a child and Dr Melissa McColloch hopefully will my last."

Irene S., Stewartville, MN

"Gentling Dental is my favorite! The staff is all really friendly and happy to help with insurance billing, the offices are clean and up to date and the dental work...well, it doesn't hurt much and seems great!”

At the same time, they share a similar passion for trustworthy, family-friendly dentistry that always adheres to very high clinical standards. To put it simply, they never perform care that they wouldn’t recommend to their very own loved ones.

Our Friendly Dental Team

Treats Everyone Like Family

Ongoing oral healthcare shouldn’t have to be an overly cold and impersonal experience. Here in Rochester, our staff members work very hard to help each patient feel warmly welcomed and right at home, listening to concerns and answering questions whenever needed. Getting to know you well over time is the best part of our jobs! By the time you’re ready to leave, we sincerely hope that you have plenty of new reasons to smile brightly.

A Truly Comprehensive Dental Exam

That Considers
the Whole You

While your teeth may take center stage, a patient’s oral health consists of several moving parts that can affect not only your oral health, but your day-to-day quality of life as well. At Gentling Dental, we take the time to look at the entire system and fix problems at their source.
