We Offer Top-Notch Family Dentistry.
Dr. Barbara Bowman-Hensley isn’t the only highly qualified and committed dental professional in the office. Our staff plays a vital role in our patients’ oral health. From the front office staff to the dental assistant, each team member carries out her responsibilities with dedication and professionalism. When you arrive at Gentle Family Dentistry, our front office staff greets you with a smile and ensures you feel comfortable. Given that many of our patients feel uncomfortable or even afraid of visiting the dentist, their role is essential. From there our dentist and dental assistants work hard to clean their patients’ teeth. For high-quality family dentistry in Asheville, NC, you can trust our team!
