The Oak Tree Dentistry Team

Welcome to Oak Tree Dentistry!

"Dentistry is my passion and I believe if you do anything with passion, you will enjoy what you do. I enjoy dentistry and I enjoy connecting with my patients. This makes me get up feeling excited to start my day. 

After planning for more than a year, I finally decided to open the practice of my dreams where I could practice dentistry the way I want and could make smiles affordable to my patients. Our practice motto is to provide excellent customer service, comfort, and make healthy smiles affordable to all. Due to our commitment to provide quality dentistry and exceptional customer services, we have been voted Best Dental in Elk Grove.

We stand by our commitment, 'Your Smile. Our Passion.' I look forward connecting with you."  – Dr. Pritpal Gill

Dr. Gill's office and staff are awesome

Dr. Gill's office and staff are awesome. I was scared about the work I was getting done so I called in and Dr. Gill took time out of his morning and explained everything to me and assured me I would be fine. I came in for my appointment the next day and saw Dr. Pham. Dr. Pham did some fillings and a crown on me and I was so nervous because I'm hard to get numb. She was AMAZING. She walked me through every moment, went slow, and continued to check in on me to make sure I wasn't in pain.
