Dr Van went above and beyond compared to any of my prior dentists. He is super friendly and takes time teaching his patients in detail about the status of their teeth and all the best options on how to proceed. Himand Dr Young’s practice stand out with the use of state of the art technology and their staff is super friendly as well. Stop reading this review and book your appointment now!

As a new patient, I really appreciate the kindness and professionalism I received in this office. All of the staff- dental hygienist, practitioner, and Dr. Van and his colleague treated me well and efficiently. I had a pretty bad experiencewith a dentist on the east coast and had never felt that way before going to him. Dr. Van assured it could be a pleasant experience. I received a solid teeth cleaning at the end, and a walk through of what would happen next and how long it would take until next appointment. Felt comfortable the whole time and this is how all doctor's appointments should go. Thank you
