Please leave us a review. We'd love to hear from you!
“Had my first appointment with Dr. Yong today and I have to say it was a great visit... It's been years since I've had a dentist visit without someone trying to sell me something!! Dr. Yong was helpful in explaining everything and his office staff were super friendly. Thank you all so much. Also I was in and out within an hour. New patient paperwork, full mouth x-rays and cleaning all easy pain free and quick..”
"The best and painless shots ever! I had a serious phobia about going to the dentist but this place is hands down the best!
“This is my first time sticking with a dentist for more than a year (except for when I was a kid and my mom decided where I would go). I have HMO and it is nearly impossible to find a decent dentist that accepts HMO. Both dentists here are great. They are gentle and not at all pushy. If they do suggest a procedure, they will actually explain why I should do the procedure and show it to me on the xray, unlike many other my previous dentist who would just keep pushing deep cleaning on me without any explanation. The receptionist and dental assistants here are also super nice. I got my wisdom tooth extracted here and was scared to death but they were very nice and answered all the questions I kept asking them. I will continue to come here for all my dentistry needs..”
