Dental Expertise delivered with a Gentle Touch

The Gentle Dentist isn't just a name we go by — it's a philosophy we live by. Also known as Coulman Dental, The Gentle Dentist is committed to making visiting the dentist an experience our patients actually enjoy. As a Columbus family dentist for more than 20 years, we've helped thousands of patients achieve beautiful smiles and the best possible dental health.

Relax, you're in Gentle Hands

Through gentle, friendly family dentistry and special touches, like massage chairs, cable television, and DVD players in every room, we've been helping patients feel comfortable in the dental chair for more than two decades. We make a special effort to take care of the apprehensive dental patient. Our entire staff works to put you at ease from the moment you walk through our doors to give you a beautiful smile.
