Gentenaar was born in Nijmegen. Coming from the amateur side ZOW, he made his professional debut for NEC on 26 November 1995 aged 20, at home against PSV Eindhoven which NEC lost 5–0. Gentenaar made another appearance later that season, but had to wait until 1998 to make his second appearance in professional football. During that season he played seven matches, still as the second goalkeeper for NEC. From the 2000–01 season, things changed for Gentenaar and he became NEC's first goalkeeper. Since then he only missed nine appearances in five seasons; during the last three seasons he did not miss a single match.
He developed into a trustworthy goalkeeper and his performance earned him a transfer to Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund. A year later he returned to the Eredivisie, to become second goalkeeper behind Maarten Stekelenburg at Ajax, at which time he won the 2007 KNVB Cup, his first career trophy. On 8 June 2009, he left Ajax and signed a two-year contract with VVV-Venlo. In 2012, he signed with Almere City FC for a two-year period. After a year in the First Division he returned to his former club NEC and signed a contract for one year. He ended his professional career in May 2014.
Gentenaar was born in the Netherlands, and is of Indonesian descent through his father.
