The Gentle Dentist Approach patients trust

At The Gentle Dentist, we’ve been keeping our promise to bring a gentle touch to dental care—including even the most complex dental services—for over three decades. Our gentle approach has made us the Columbus family dentist that Central Ohio turns to for high quality, stress-free dental care.

Our patients gave us our name

Founded by the late Dr. Bill Coulman in 1991, Coulman Dental–now known as The Gentle Dentist–continues Dr. Coulman’s legacy of quality, gentle dental care today. Dr. Coulman’s patients quickly recognized the gentle approach that set our practice apart from others in the Central Ohio area, and they began referring to Coulman Dental as The Gentle Dentist. We officially adopted the name, and every member of our team works hard to continually deliver on the promise.

“How do you improve upon perfection? Don’t even try! We switched our entire family to your care and it has been the best move we’ve ever made. The quality of care has been considerably beyond our expectations.”
