Alex A. - ★★★★★

"He has fixed my mouth! Changed the color, worked to fix my endless cavities and is patient with my endless questions. He is calm and direct. Front office staff (Gerlinda in particular) is so sweet! Hygienists are all professional and easy going. So blessed to have found him."

" Found Dr. Gelb through a friend and he came highly recommended. I was more than happy with his work! Not only is he an excellent, competent dentist, he is also an excellent artist that is able to create the most beautiful smile. His office is clean, comfortable, and organized. The staff is very friendly and courteous. I would highly recommend Dr. Gelb!"

Finding a comfortable dental home enhances your quality of life. Our welcome starts before you even step in the door at Dentistry in Bellevue.  Here’s what you can expect to find:

Let's get to know each other

Our relationship with you rests on mutual respect and genuine listening. Your first visit provides quality time to ask questions, express your concerns, and share anything you want us to know.

You can expect to leave our office with a greater understanding of your oral and overall health, and an established direction towards your dental goals.  Your initial visit includes:

  • Discussion of Your Goals and Concerns

  • Health History Review

  • Oral Cancer Screening

  • Gum Disease Screening/Charting

  • Cavity, Fracture, Wear and Missing Tooth Exam/Charting

  • Digital X-Ray Review

  • Professional Cleaning

This appointment is typically 1.5 to 2 hours long and will include a teeth cleaning, unless you have a dental emergency that needs immediate treatment.

You're in great hands

If a little time has gone by since your last dental visit, you’re in the right place now. You’ve made an important decision – no need to feel guilty!

Once we’ve gathered a few records,  Dr. Gelb will discuss your current condition. Together we can create a healthy, effective plan that meets your dental and personal goals. Prioritizing and staging your care gives you the smile you need within a budget and timeframe that fits your needs.

Above all, we go beyond expectations to make you feel relaxed, safe, and comfortable. Your physical and emotional comfort remain our focus regardless of treatment goals.

So come in, relax, and unwind – you’re in great hands.
