Care Philosophy

Dr. Peltzer in Plainville, CT has advanced his studies in different specialty areas of Dentistry so that his combined and complementary skills allow you to get the best available care. Most patients are inconvenienced when they are required to seek dental care at multiple offices. However, everybody should have the opportunity to have their dental needs met at one office rather than be referred to one specialist and then to another just to treat one tooth! Dr. Peltzer's patients are delighted that they can have all of their dental needs performed at Gentle Dental Care and not have to travel inconveniently from dentist to dentist. We do have close working relationships with all dental specialties should the need arise to consult regarding a specific situation.Read more

I had gone to this office for a couple of years and if you are looking for a routine cleaning I had no issue. When you have other issues you end up getting the run around brought in for appointments that aren't necessary and continually billed. I wouldn't go back to this dentist if he was the last dentist on the planet and all of my teeth were rotting and going to fall out.

Dr. Peltzer is a very friendly, caring and experienced dentist and oral surgeon. He sedated me for my implants that he did for me and I don't remember a thing! Now I have a solid, natural looking implant bridge with which to chew. He's great. Staff is friendly, helpful and kind also. Highly recommended.
