Dr. Yung was absolutely fantastic! He was kind, patient, and fantastically thoughtful. It was very meaningful to have a provider tell me there is "no such thing as a bad question." Thank you Dr. Yung!!

Dr. Yung is very personable and capable, but the demeanor of the guy that staffs the front desk not so much. And it helps if the front desk researched insurance before someone gets there so we know what we are supposed to pay

It was an emergency call on Sunday 4/18 because of a painful toothache. Dr. Yung scheduled to see me right away the next morning. After the x-ray, I was told that I need a root canal and he referred me tothe specialist and gave me an appointment within 2 days because I will be out of the country for a vacation from April 2-25. Dr.Yung is very professional and helpful. Thank you Dr. Norman Yung!

I have made multiple visits (between 6 and 10, at a guess) to Dr Yung's office over the last 8 months, and have never been anything less than happy and impressed. He is communicative and engaging, and very concerned with doingthe best job possible. I have already recommended a friend to him, and she is very happy as well. The office staff are all knowledgeable and professional too. Top marks all round. Thank you!

It was overall an okay experience. I am disappointed in the multiple visits required to receive treatment. I wish they were more efficient and considerate of patient's times. In my case, the last trip to the dentist could have been avoided,but instead I wasted my time and have not completed treatment. I am now being referred to a specialist and will have to return for multiple visits. This type of care feels inadequate. Excellent dental care takes into consideration the patient's time, needs, and concerns. It makes you lose trust in your provider. In the future I would recommend this provider provides more realistic timelines for care, so you can make prior arrangements and feel you are being given all options. I will say this provider was thorough in his explanations of why I should go with the recommended treatment, but he never gave me the option to make that decision for myself. It almost felt like I had no other choice and the decision was made for me since I was already sitting in the dental chair. Unfortunately, at this point the lack of setting expectations have made me less confident in the care I am receiving. I would not recommend this office to a family member for anything other than the basic cleaning and cavity treatment.

Excellent service all-around. When I had to return to the dentist because the lab didn't correctly form a crown, I was reimbursed a significant portion of my copay and the dentist fixed a small chip in another tooth for no charge.Excellent customer service. And, while, going to the dentist is never pleasant, this was one of the least painful dentist experiences I have ever had. Highly recommend.

I have now seen Dr Yung a number of times and had 3 procedures and I'm pleased to say that he's a GREAT dentist! He's kind and patient, explains his reasoning for recommendations, doesn't patronize and displays in interest in thepatient's well being and comfort. I've had very negative experiences with dentists in the past. Dr Yung calmed my fears and I feel that he will help me restore my teeth to good health. I recommend him with no reservations!

Dr. Yung just bought the practice from my previous dentist, and made a point to come in and introduce himself. He shared information about his background, asked questions about me to get to know me better. I was very impressed byhis professionalism and the personal time he took with me. I'm very happy to have Dr. Yung as my new Dentist.

This is the best dentist and dental practice I have ever known. And, I HATE going to the dentist. This office never made me feel shamed for my sub-par hygenine practices and just got the work done. I felt very caredfor, and surprisingly, was not anywhere near as anxious as I've been in the past. Thank you!

I've been a patient for about 3 years and over the time learned that Dr. Yung's work is superb and his fillings and regular check-ups have been keeping my teeth healthy. He only offers necessary treatments, listens to the patient, andis not afraid to "cautiously wait and see" rather than jump into some more drastic treatment.
