Doctors Tran and Balshe are exceptional. I have never felt so at ease at a dental office. Katy, my hygienist, is so sweet and informative... She takes oral care to a higher level. Each member of the team is wonderful. I wish I could remember everyones name... Janet, Sylvia, Jennifer to name a few. A Great Dental Team makes for an amazing Dental Experience!

Lost a lot when Dr Sarkisian left. He was the reason I felt cared for as a patient. Dr Nancy Laysa is heavy handed and lacks compassion. She treats me like a walking source of income for the business.

I was looking around for a new dental office. I checked the reviews on Yelp and some were negative. I decided to take a chance and try Desert Gateway Dental Group. I don’t understand why this office got some bad reviews. Everyone was friendly and kind. Everything was explained to me in terms I could understand, from the X-rays, insurance and what my follow up plan will be. The office is spotless, and overall, it was one of the best dental experiences I have ever had. I would definitely recommend this office.

Dr Alexander Tran is an excellent dentist. We are lucky to have him here in the Valley. Androo is an x-ray tech extraordinaire and a more than competent dental assistant. A shout out to the ladies in the front office...professional, efficient and gets the job done right the first time. A pleasure to be a client with this group.

I I am totally content with the care I receive at Gateway. From hygienist to dentist to staff who merely see me passing by, I am treated with dignity and kindness. I suspect that if I hadn't found Gateway I would now be wearing ill-fitting dentures and avoiding apples and Peanut Brittle! Now I eat anything I want and have no discomfort in the process. Pretty good for my advanced age!

I was very apprehensive about visiting this practice. I just recently hit 65 and Desert Gateway Dental Group was the chosen vendor for me so I really did not know what to expect. My first visit and treatment was done in a courteous, efficient and professional manner. My current condition was explained by the dentist and the dental hygienist Jennifer was excellent. I would recommend this practice for anyone needing dental work. The office is spotless and the equipment is high tech.

From the moment I called to the moment after my oral surgery, this office has truly been amazing. My wisdom teeth were causing me so much pain. Your team recognized that and was able to fit me into an appointment the very next day ! The girls that took care of me before my surgery were just amazing, I didn't even know the surgery was over when they woke me up. Your team truly did an amazing job ! Thank you so much.

i wasn't prepared to start procedures, but it was nice to have that option. office was very busy so i was there from 1:pm to 5:30 pm for picture update, last ones taken approx. i year ago, exam with consultation, (options, etc), 2 crowns. waited about 25 mins. between each part of visit. office was very busy so i did not have full attention of staff. but, as i am a retired medical receptionist, i know that this is sometimes unavoidable.

As a new, and emergency patient on December 23rd, I was welcomed, never made to feel they were rushed and treated like you would hope to be treated in any business you were to NEED! I was so pleasantly surprised, that I called my daughter, who is a dental assistant in Tennessee and told her that hopefully her office was as considerate. After all, dental work is neither fun nor inexpensive and to feel that you are appreciated and welcome goes a long way to making you more willing to get the things done that should be done for your health, not just the things that MUST be done. Thank you Desert Gateway team. And Merry Christmas!!

Just a little bit late getting started but I was happy that you were able to give me a checkup and meeting with Dr. Art at the last minute due to surgery schedule that was unpredictable
