Your Naperville Dentist Since 1986.

Gentle Family Dentistry was founded in 1986 by a Naperville Dentist, Dr. John Jaeschke. He chose the downtown location at 10 E. Benton Ave, Naperville, when the building became available, and began restoring the historic structure into a modern state-of-the-art dental practice. The dentists and assistants we have on staff are friendly, professional and ready to help your family with your dental needs. We’ve been here for over 30 years, and are proud to be a part of the Naperville community. From regular check-ups for the kids, to cleaning and whitening, to cosmetic dentistry and teeth replacement, we are a full service dental practice. We’re looking forward to meeting you and your family. Click here to Contact Us.

About Us

Are you accepting new patients?
Yes we always accept new patients to Gentle Family Dentistry of Naperville.
Do you take my insurance?
We are participating members of these groups: Delta Dental Premier. Cigna PPO and United Concordia Elite Plus. Also, we submit to all insurance companies. Dental insurance policies help with the cost of your dental care. Your insurance plan is a contract between you, your employer and the insurance company. These contracts vary widely. It's helpful for you to be aware of your plan's coverage. As a courtesy to you, our office is happy to file your claim with any other dental policies; in which we are not contracted with. The portion of the bill not covered by insurance is your responsibility.

Gentle Family Dentistry does not participate in Health Management Organizations (HMO). We can only estimate your coverage in good faith but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. We are happy to send a pre-treatment estimate to your insurance for pre-approval.

Even though we will be processing your claims, a 20% deposit is required for restorative treatment (fillings). Major restorative treatment (crown, bridges, root canals, partial and dentures) requires a deposit of 1/3 of the fee at the initiation of treatment.

We ask that payment be made at the time the service is rendered. If your treatment requires several visits, financial arrangements can be made with our financial coordinators.

Patients without insurance or with insurance plans not recognized by our office are expected to pay for services in full at the time these services are rendered. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to one of our financial coordinators.

Your safety is our highest priority. Our office is equipped with the most thorough sterilization equipment. The equipment is tested regularly to insure sterilization accuracy. We want to ensure the safety of the patient, therefore we ask that only the patient be in the operation room. We are not equipped for babysitting, so we ask that you have babysitting arrangements made for any child that cannot remain in the reception room unattended.
