I had not been to the dentist in over 10 years and was extremely nervous about going back. The second I walked in I felt a tremendous weight lift off my shoulders. The office is extremely clean and everyone was sofriendly and professional. It made me feel so comfortable. I look forward to my return visit.

Clearly and thoroughly explained my situation, and even diagnosed a problem I hadn't expected would have a connection to my dental health. From start to finish, a very professional experience.

I'm thankful to find such a knowledgeable pain specialist- after a lifetime of jaw/alignment issues and years of orthodontics, my first consultation with Dr. Ahn was surprisingly illuminating. He took one look at my bite and knew exactly howmy history was impacting my current condition and pain. Also #blessed that my insurance completely covers appointments. Warm and welcoming front desk staff, which is always a plus. My only regret is that I didn't seek him out sooner!

I went in for a check-up and cleaning. I spent most of the time with the assistant but she was very knowledgeable and answered most of my questions before the dentist arrived. I have sensitive gums and wish the cleaning hadbeen more gentle but appreciate that the assistant was thorough. I also filled in my documents beforehand but the office had switched over to a new system and none of my patient history/insurance information had saved. It was a bit annoying to fill out the documents again but the staff was nice and apologized for the inconvenience. All in all, I would return for a second visit.

He's great! It's taken me a while to find a great dentist in the city so I truly appreciated how knowledgeable and thorough he was. He also got to the root of my problem extremely fast enough though I was a first time patient.

Firstly Dr Ahn was wonderful and had a lovely bedside manner. I would not hesitate to reccomend him. The front desk staff member I had the misfortune of encountering was the worst I have ever experienced. She was patronizing, aggressive andobnoxious as well as just plain inept at her job. I could never even consider coming back based on such a terrible front desk experience. I left almost in tears. It is a true shame because it otherwise seems like a lovely practice let down by one completely unacceptable front desk staff member.

Dr. Ahn was very nice and very informative - entire visit to this office was exceptional! The front desk staff was the most polite I think I have ever encountered at any doctor's office. Service was quick (minimal wait time), professional, and hospitable. Office is very nice as well.

Pleasant experience except for the front desk staff wasn't too helpful or smart. They kept telling me I didn't have an appointment when I had a confirmation by email and by text with the signature of one their employees.

Very professional. Dr Ahn made sure to keep me informed of each step and his staff made me aware of cost prior to taking any actions. They use the latest tech which also a plus. Going back in a few weeksfor a follow up. I've already recommended a few people!

From the receptionist who welcomed me to the practice, to the Assistant, to Dr. Ahn himself, my whole experience was great. The reception area and the office are attractive, clean, and up to date. Dr. Ahn not only took care ofmy problem quickly and professionally, he actually stayed after the appointment to chat for a few minutes. This made the care seem personal, and I did not feel rushed in and out of the office.

Very sophisticated office with a type of x-ray machine I've never seen. Looks like a giant egg that opens and closes over your head while you bite down on this narrow tab. Regardless, I think the whole staff was exceptional and they work well with my insurance.

I had a chipped tooth and was referred to Dr. Ahn by a colleague. He was amazing! He clearly laid out all of my options and we decided together what would work best for me. It looks exactly the same asit did before it was chipped. The office was clean and modern and the staff was super friendly. A truly pleasant experience. I'll be going to Dr. Ahn for all of my dental work going forward.

After avoiding the dentist for sometime I finally decided to find one, was able to schedule an appointment on the same day (5-11-15), had a less than 30 minute wait time. Offices are modern, clean, and cozy. Staff professional and friendly.Recommended my boyfriend but they do not accept his insurance...super disappointment, will certainly return. Extractions are done offsite also a disappointment for a fearful patient such as myself. All in all great find!

Dr. Ahn was great. He explained exactly what the problem was and how best to take care of it. He worked very patiently with his technician (who obviously was new to this work and needed guidance) in carrying out the procedure.The extraction was done very professionally and I felt no discomfort at any stage. He also explained what were the next possible options available and the possible implications. I shall be visiting DR. Ahn again for a follow up and look forward to it. P.S. Before the procedure was carried out, I was told how much it would cost me out of pocket and only after I said it was ok that the Dr. Ahn went ahead with the procedure.
