How was your experience with the doctor?I arrived about two or three minutes before my appointment time of 4:45 pm for a dental cleaning with Dr Yun and was pleasantly surprised with how quickly I was seen. Dr Yun offered tidbits of advice as she examined and cleaned my teeth, and I like that she didn't suggest getting x-rays but asked for them to be transferred from my previous dentist's office. Midway through the cleaning, a dental assistant came by to provide me with sunglasses to guard against the blinding overhead light. When Dr Yun noticed my lips were drying out through the cleaning, she dabbed on some vitamin E oil before continuing. Overall, this was a pleasant, efficient, and professional visit.

How was your experience with the doctor?It was my first appointment in this clinic (and in the USA in general). I was greeted kindly, the receptionist explained everything to me and I went to see Dr. Yun right away. Dr. Yun was very kind, explained everything and checked me up quickly and came up with a solution. Great dentist experience! :)

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Yun was great! My only complaint was that they were training a dental assistant who was, briefly, allowed to be involved in redoing a filling - but when I asked that the more experienced assistant swap in, they were happy to do so. Still, I would have preferred not to feel that was necessary.

How was your experience with the doctor?I had a great experience. Dr. Yun and her staff were all very friendly. I've been to dentists where I felt that all they cared about was how much they could bill (insisting on x-rays even if not necessary, etc.) and I definitely didn't feel that way with Dr. Yun. I was able to fill out information online before the appointment which saved me time at the office too. Easy street parking too. Would definitely recommend.

How was your experience with the doctor?Porcelain veneer on my front left tooth was chipped so I needed an emergency treatment. Dr. Yun was very attentive and suggested several options to consider before decision making. Everything was vert efficient including the treatment. It was one of the fast and the least painful dental visits.

How was your experience with the doctor?Carol was wonderful. She is a great dentist willing to work with me and my insurance to make the most of my benefits. She gave me options for my dental care to fit with my priorities and budget. As someone with a complex, sever set of dental problems I didn't feel shamed as I have at other practices.

How was your experience with the doctor?I was a bit skeptical when she recommended a bunch of work after only seeing me for 5 minutes. I decided to fill two small cavities, even though I didn't experience any pain whatsoever. After a week, there was persistent pain from where she filled the cavity. And then after 2 months there was a crack in the filling. This had never happened to me before. I think because of the lack of quality of care and her immediately selling me treatments, I'm going to try some place else.

How was your experience with the doctor?This was my first visit to this clinic, and it felt very rushed. I came in for a regular deep cleaning, and wasn't given any anesthesia, so the procedure was very uncomfortable. I didn't have time to ask about the condition of my teeth and when the next visit should happen, and the doctor didn't volunteer this information either.
