Sylvia Padilla=I first met one of the
representatives from Gateway Family Dentistry at the fair, it was a Friday and they scheduled me for Monday which was amazing to me. Most dentists or doctors usually can’t schedule you that quickly.
I showed up on Monday and was impressed with the friendly and attentive staff, the office is very state of the art, very clean and has a soothing atmosphere.
They took me right in and didn’t have a long wait, which is also very surprising. I have never had any doctor or dentists take me in within a few minutes of arrival.
I was also pleased to find out that Doctor Mutyala was more than capable to take care of my needs with over 20 years of experience in the USA and that she had a very pleasant demeanor.
I highly recommend Gateway Family Dentistry to all of you guys out there, swing by and check out the facility, the girls will be happy to answer all of your questions.

Zenae Fields= I want to thank the staff at Gateway Family Dental for being very patient with my 7 year old son.

Chad Ensey=After my first visit with Dr. Padma, yesterday, I felt a sense of redemption because I always knew that there had to be a dentist like her, she is amazing, I'm in my 50's so I wish that I had met her sooner. For the first time in my life, I look forward to my next dental appointment. She is obviously of above average intelligence but so humble and kind. Explains everything in a way that anyone can understand. Very thorough and something I had NEVER experienced before, she cleaned my teeth!!!! What dentist does that? So impressed!!!! BTW, I don't have a FB page so I am using my husband's. My name is Maggie and I whoheartedly and without a doubt would recommend her to anyone and as a matter of fact, as soon as I left her office yesterday I sent a group text to my immediate family raving about her.

Sep 18, 2018

debbie Stirling=Amazingly fenominal, by far the best experience I have ever had, from the first call, I was treated with , respect, and was treated the same day!! Pain free, this dentist is amazing, she made me feel like I was the most important patient ever. She took her time to explain each and every step in detail in language I could understand, not the dental lingo.
The staff was efficient & caring, with a friendly smile & made me feel at home.
If your looking for a down to earth, honest, detail oriented dentist that will make you feel at home ... gateway family dental is the place for you & your family. Excellent work ethic!!
I am beyond excited to return. Simply amazing!!

Patricia Sarabia=They’ve taken care of my whole family. I hate going to the dentist because of my health issues but the whole staff is comforting and understanding. Your not a number in a room to be forgotten. Your in, your their main concern and your out. Best dentist I’ve had. She’s so knowledgeable as well. Just something I’ve haven’t run into in the medical or dental profession. I’ve run into a handful that are narrow minded to their specialty. It felt great not having to explain things.

Nicole P.=I am so lucky my friend referred me here. I originally had an appointment at a different dentist office that told me I would only need a crown and we can discuss a root canal in the future. This made me weary, so I contacted this office and was able to be seen right away. Dr. Mutyala performed a root canal, filling, and temporary crown the same day as my walk in visit! Her staff is amazing, helpful, friendly, and made me feel like I was a part of their tight family. I am so happy I chose Gateway for my dental care, and I hope you do too! 


Jun 06, 2018

Aug 2-2016 

Connor Tab-I've been looking for a dentist for my daughter for months now...and Dr. Mutyala is the best! I would recommend her to anyone who like a personable Dentist that really cares. Every Dentist I called it was going to be a 3-6 month wait till I got an appointment ... Dr. Mutyala got us in within the week and my daughter and I were blessed with a wonderful experience. She gave us information to help prevent cavities and which tooth brushes work better. Also, her staff was extremely friendly and their office is up to date with technology. And their location is at a friendly location where I didn't have to drive across town to see a dentist. I would recommend kids,family and friends to go to Gateway!

July 29-2016 

Devon H-Best dental office in town!! When your kids actually look forward to going to the dentist, you know you've found somewhere special!! I recommend them to everyone!!

I know how people are uncomfortable and afraid of going to the dentist but believe me Gateway dental goes out of there way to ease your anxiety and make your dental experience a pleasant one
Jessica Kniffen- First visit was a new patient and cleanings for myself, husband, and son. The staff were friendly and quick without missing details. Our son (7) is a bit shy normally. He went right back with them and they took great care of him. Office is clean and well kept. I would recommend them to anyone.



Angela T- The ladies who work there are so kind....I was so nervous but they made me feel so comfortable!... Dr. Mutyala was very professional and accommodated me!... I recommend this Dentistry highly!... They are quick to get u in!



Nicole Palmer - A huge thank you to dr. Mutyala and staff for showing me such compassion and taking away the pain I was in. Mind you I was a walk in patient with a wisdom tooth that needed pulled and I got right in and taken care of. There's no where else I will go now! 


Meghan Legat - It a great place to get you teeth done. The doctor work is excellent on teeth.



Dr. Mutyala and her staff are caring professionals. The unparalleled attention to detail and clear straightforward manner remove the anxiety of dental visits and give comfort knowing you are in knowledgeable hands.

  5 stars.I love this place! I have ridiculous anxiety and this lovely dentist took her time and was very caring. I couldn't have asked for a better experience ❤️ Thank you! 



Gateway family dentistry is the best dental office I have ever been to. Dr. Mutyala is so gentle and kind. I have had a horrible fear of dentists and she comforted me, and reassured me that she would take care of me. The office is shoothing and clean. The equipment is top of the line, and the staff is so helpful and even more sweet. I couldn't have asked for a better experience! Thank you so much for making me feel comfortable, and for making my smile beautiful, you have no idea how much I appreciate your compassion, and gentle touch!     Amber Butcher



This is an awesome dentist. Dr. Mutyala is very caring when working on you and cares that you are comfortable. Freindly staff! GREAT experiences every time I have been in. And Thats hard to say about going to the dentist         JUSTIN F.



I am so happy to have finally found a great dental office in the area!  Having been spoiled at my previous dental office, moving here has presented a unique challenge to finding a place where I would be just as as satisfied with my dental care.

First things first:  calling in and scheduling my appt with Cheryl was great.  She's sweet as pie.  

When I called with a follow up question, I actually got Dr. Mutyala on the other end of the line (how cool that she answered, most doctors feel answering phones is "beneath" them).  She was very helpful and patient. 

At my first appt, Irma did great with my xrays and has a cute and quirky personality.  Dr.  Mutyala has that "tough-love" way about herself BUT I like it because I'm really into my dental care and don't want someone to beat around the bush, just tell me like it is.     She was thorough and answered ALL my questions without ever looking exasperated.  I will definitely recommend her to my friends and family.  Wish all dental practices could be this way.

Oh!  BTW, the office is very clean and tidy.  Staff looks well groomed as well.  Clean bathroom!

CLASS ACT - I have had more experience than I care to recall with dentist offices, I came across this office through a referral - like hitting the tooth lottery - Im very fussy and always had to sacrifice in so many other offices - Dr Padmaja Cheryl & May is on top of there game The Dr is a perfectionist, She has patients of a saint and her work is 200% Thorough and efficient  - You will never leave without having everything CRYSTAL CLEAR. Oh, ....... Her Office ...... BEAUTIFUL - CLEAN - With STATE OF THE ART TECHNOLOGY Throughout !!!!! I Wish Other Dentist can take some lessons from her, She reinvents the description of QUALITY, THANK YOU GATEWAY.      JOSEPH  P.


Best dental experience I've ever had. Dentist is honest and the staff is amazing. Really happy I found this place. The decor is calming and they really make you feel comfortable. Dentist really takes her time explaining things and is upfront about costs before hand.      ROBYN  F.



Great doctor, very gentle and very explains very thoroughly so you can understand and gives her recommendations with what is best for the care of your teeth . Very Clean new office with a very great kind staff.     MARIO R.



I am so happy to have found Gateway Family Dentistry.  I have had some awful experiences with Dentist up till now. I had Crowns put on my front teeth in the past, hated the results because of the pain, sensitivity, and crowns were not done correctly.  I went to a number of other offices in town and was told that they couldn't help me or gave me excuses why I had pain.   Dr Padmaja Mutyala took  the time to explain what was causing me the pain and also what having bad crowns were doing to my teeth, and my health.   After seeing Dr Mutyala, I now have beautiful teeth and my bite feels so much better.  I am pain free the first time in 5 years. Dr Mutyala is an artist when it come to doing crowns and now I love to smile again.  
I am also so impressed that her staff explained all my insurance benifits and how to utilize them to the fullest. In the past I wasn't sure what was covered and what wasn't, resulting in run-a-way costs to me.  It is so nice to have all the facts and an office that works with you.  I would highly recommend Gateway Family Dentistry to anyone looking for a excellent Dentist.

"Living on the west side of Bakersfield makes this dentistry perfect for me.  Dr. Padmaja Mutyala makes the experience easy and explains everything clearly.  My wife and I had many troubles finding the kind of dentist who takes the time to clearly explain and have patience with our dental issues.  Thanks to Dr. Mutyala we have never been in better standing with our teeth.  Gateway Family Dentistry has an extrmely clean office and the newest of technologies available for the patient.  I highly recommend this office to anyone looking for a thurough and good natured dentist.”                   JUSTIN  D.
