Why Choose Our Practice?


When it comes to picking a dentist, we know that you have options. Personalized, gentle, comprehensive patient care is our number one priority!

Here are just a few things that make our practice unique:

We are a private family owned dental practice that has been providing quality care for more than 45 years. 

The original dental office was started in Robbinsdale, MN in 1971 called William F Pucel DDS PA. In 1984, Dr. William Pucel changed the offices name to A Gentle Dental Center. A Gentle Dental Center’s title is not an advertising opportunity; it is the way we practice. The Robbinsdale practice was sold in December of 2021, shortly after Dr. William Pucel retired.

The Rogers, Minnesota location was later founded by Dr. Jill Pucel Koopman in 2005.  We are proud to provide quality cosmetic family dentistry and sincerely appreciate each patient.

Our mission is to provide state of the art dentistry committed to excellence in a gentle, courteous and professional manner.  We promote regular preventive care in our office and at home so our patients may enjoy a lifetime of good dental health.  

The delivery of dental services has been undergoing a dramatic change in recent years. Large businesses have entered into the dental services marketplace and are making it challenging for the smaller to exist.  Still, most dentists are solo practitioners or small group practices like ourselves.  Each office is separately owned and operated and here to provide you with Five Star Quality Service!  You are not just a number to us, you are our top priority!

We, at A Gentle Dental Center, are proud to be a small business providing quality, personal dental care that responds to the individual patient’s needs.

Care and Commitment

From the front office to the exam room, our practice is made up of professionals who take your oral health very seriously. Using state-of-the art equipment designed with safety and efficiency in mind, we are able to offer top-notch care. As you walk through our office, you will notice that everything is clean, comfortable and thoroughly sterilized. Your safety and comfort are our priority.

Honesty and Affordability

We know that the cost of care can be confusing. In addition to offering a number of in-office payment options to fit your budget, we also give you up-front cost information on your treatment ahead of time. We are in-network with a variety of insurance plans, and we offer various forms of dental financing with credit available in time frames that fit your needs. We are happy to help you navigate your dental insurance and alternative payment options.

Easy Access to Dental Care and Information

We know that your time is valuable to you, and that’s why we offer dental appointment reminders, and a quick turnaround time on calls and appointment requests. We are happy to answer any questions or concerns in the office, over the phone or via email.

Comprehensive Dental Care in One Location

At A Gentle Dental Center, we are qualified to handle all aspects of your care, so you are always surrounded by people that you trust. If we must refer out, we promise to send you to trusted colleagues who apply the same professional principles in their office that we do in ours.


We respect and understand that many patients experience dental anxiety. At our office, we do everything we can to make sure that your experience is as enjoyable as possible. By communicating clearly what you can expect during your treatment, we are often able to alleviate dental fear.
