We have been customers of George Gundersen and now Arne Gundersen and have been very satisfied with the services they have provided over the years. The reception and dental hygiene staff are top notch too. We especially enjoy the services of our regular hygienist Kari

Never had a poor experience! I’m so glad I was introduced to this place 5 years ago! Kari (sp?) is a gem of a hygienist and Dr. Gunderson is proficient in his craft! Every moment from walking in the door makes me look forward to my visits.

I had a very hard time with Anxiety in the chair. Kari has me sitting still and feeling good about dental visits. So good I can get the extra cleaning I really need and have been afraid to sit still for. Dr. Arne is conscientious and very good at his work. The tidy professional office is also convenient. I appreciate this dental team and recommend them to anyone looking for Dental care.

Dr. Gundersen is very kind as well is all his staff. I really dislike going to the dentist, as do most people, but the kindness of the staff always puts me at ease. They offer payment plans if you have to have expensive work done and can't pay right away.

Everybody here is competent, cheerful, conscientious and thorough.I’ve been with them for 40 years, and the care is excellent, painless, and uses new technology. Conversation is limited in a dental chair, but I get a lift from the conversations I’ve had, and am always impressed with their engagement and interest.

This office was recommended to me by a friend of mine. This was only my first visit, but I was very satisfied with my experience. Each employee I interacted with was very friendly and seemed happy to be there. The clinic is very nice and clean. Dr. Gundersen was personable and genuinely interested in my dental health. His examination was thorough, and instilled a great amount of confidence in me for my future relationship with him and his staff.

My first experience at the Gundersen clinic was outstanding. Over the phone and in person customer service was excellent. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. I appreciated the extent of Dr. Gundersen's exam and the folks who assisted. The hygienist who clean my teeth was friendly, careful, and thorough. I also appreciated the matter-of-fact manner in which my results were shared with me. They were prioritized to what needed to be done first, etc. I did not feel like someone was trying to "upscale" for services I did not need. This has not always been experience in dental offices.

Message: Sorry, I have no ability to send photo. Let words speak for themselves. Dr. Arne and staff are 1) very professional 2) orientated to give best possible dental service 3) the day my wife was a patient there were a few "left over cookies from the day before Christmas office party". We were invited as we paid our bill to eat and enjoy a delicious cookie. How could we NOT like Dr. Arne and his friendly staff? Al Suneson pays the bills, enjoys an occasional cookie. We both win.

I have been going to this dental office for years, first being treated by Dr. G and then his son, Dr. Arne. This family-oriented business is friendly, comfortable, accommodating, and professional. The staff is amazing and Dr. Arne really cares about his patients. Wonderful dental care.

I come in for quarterly cleanings and other work, Karrie is always thorough, knowledgeable and supportive. In the past I have not looked forward to my dental appointments, due to mouth trauma and a past dentist who was brutal. This office has always been totally supportive and meets my needs. I find Dr. Gunderson to have a nurturing, warm, supporting and inclusive office.

My dentist of 34 years retired and I needed to find a new one. Many people raved about Dr. Gundersen, so I decided to give him a try. I have been so happy! His staff is caring and welcoming and they even remembered me after my first visit. The office is well-run and professional, yet friendly. I would highly recommend Dr. Gundersen!

The friendly staff made me feel right at home and my hygienist did a great job, working carefully around my sensitive wisdom teeth. Due to an unforeseen miscommunication, I had to wait 20 minutes for my appointment to begin, but the doctor and my hygienist were both apologetic and understanding, and went above and beyond to gift me a Starbucks card for my inconvenience!

I have such fear & anxiety when it comes to the dentist. I had my first appointment here & felt so well cared for! Everything was explained to me & they were so kind. The hygienist asked me several times how I was doing & she was incredible sweet. Gundersen himself was very kind & warm!

My boyfriend and I came here for our first visit and we loved it. The staff is super friendly and nice. They made sure to make us feel comfortable and not nervous. They were very attentive of our care, and even called and made appointment with the specialist for me. Neither one of us have had such an amazing dental visit as what we experience going in to Gundersen's Dental office. They were also very clear and informative of our needed dental procedure.

Words can’t begin to express my deepest gratitude for their kindness. When I saw Dr. Gundersen at an event in Tacoma and complained to him about my tooth hurting, I did not think he would remember, let alone have Patti follow up with me. That random act of kindness meant so much to me. I will say a billion thank you’s for people and businesses like Gundersen Dental because they exemplify what it means to care for another human. Patti was so helpful and kind every time I came into the office, and she truly means and shows real genuine customer service.

I've been going to Dr. Arne for more than 5 years. I work out of town now, but I continue to go to Gundersen Dental Care because I'm comfortable here; Dr. Arne and his staff are gentle. I didn't realize how much I appreciated it until I visited an endodontist near my office; they made me anxious. I guess Dr. Arne has earned my trust; I just didn't realize it until experiencing something else.

Dr. Arne Gunderson is so talented. I had an unfortunate event where I broke off the bottom half of both front teeth. Dr. Arne was able to schedule an emergency visit right away and bond the pieces back to the teeth - no major surgery, no root canal, no dentures...WOW, I was so amazed and pleased and my teeth look great! Our whole family uses Gundersen Dental Care. Everyone is so nice and it doesn't feel like a dreaded dentist appointment. My kids actually get excited for our cleanings, so that says a lot! If you are looking for a wonderful denist office then look no further!

I have personally had more bad dentists than good, but out of the good ones I have to say this is the best one ever. I called today because I woke up on excruciating pain in my jaw and they were the closest with the best reviews. They got me in for an emergency visit same day even though I was not a current patient. Everyone there was very kind and knew what they were doing. They took amazing care of me including referring me to a place that could do the procedure I needed. But they went above and beyond with that as well. They didn't just write me a referral and say call them. They called the place for me and explained my situation and got me into the other place immediately. I literally just drove from one place to another and got my tooth problems taken care of. By far the best dentist office I have ever been to and I plan on continuing to use them for as long as they are around. I would recommend this place to everyone. If they take kids I will even start taking my son there, which is the highest form of praise and trust I could ever show them.

Dr. Arne and his hygienist staff could not be better. They make you feel welcomed for every visit...as if you were the only patient. Even though we only see each other 2 x per year, they treat you like family. They seem to stay up pretty well with the current technology and latest treatments. If you have questions, they are happy to answer and provide you with information and options needed to make the most informed decision on your course of treatment. The staff is so caring and gentle. The office atmosphere is cozy, which makes the anticipation of sitting in that dentist chair warm and inviting.

I don't think there are enough positive adjectives in my vocabulary to properly describe the caliber service my family receives from the entire staff at this super-cool place.........we've all been going there for quite awhile and I honestly can't imagine ever going anywhere else...... ( yes, people they are really, really, really really nice n stuff...) ...........................God Bless y'all and have a great day !...........................

I'm a picky patient and quite like Gundersen Dental Care. Pleasant, friendly, and able to give immediate information on procedures and pricing without pushing the 'sale' of any services. Recommended to me by two families in Olympia, and I would definitely recommend them to others.

I'm a new patient and have only been in for an exam and cleaning, but so far I like the Doctor and the staff. The tech who did my cleaning did a very thorough yet painless job. The building is centrally located and is very nice inside. And I especially appreciate the electronic reminders - both on my cell phone and email.
