Took my toddlers to see the dentist, who are aged 5 and 3. Both were crying, especially my 3 year old,who wouldn’t stop screaming throughout the treatment. Staff and Dr Soon were very patient. She even sang a song while brushing their teeth. Great experience. Will be back again.

I am so happy I found Dr. Sue here on Zocdoc. My son was having Sever tooth pain. She got him in same day and was able to determine the cause of the pain, and a treatment plan which will be fulfilled next day. I am so happy with the office staff and our entire visit. I can’t wait to bring my son back for his six month check up!

Loved the office, everyone was so nice. Soon Hwang was so sweet to my baby girl. She made her as comfortable as possible and allowed the parents to enter the room. Some dentist have a rule no parents allowed and I just can't understand how that is possible so I felt at ease when Dr Hwang had no issues and she was so professional. Will come back here again and highly recommend her.

Dr. Hwang and her assistant were very professional when dealing with me but I was most impressed with how friendly they were towards my son. This was only his second ever dentist appointment but last time we had used another practice (bc of insurance differences) and I am so happy that my insurance recommended Dr. Hwang to us. The previous office was just not quite as kid-friendly. The office waiting room was clean and fun for kids, and being nervous for my son to hate going to the dentist I was so very pleased with how nice and fun she made the appointment by singing songs to my son and giving him high fives and stickers. The only downside was that parking was limited so we had to use a valet, but for Dr. Hwang I guess we can overlook that!

The reception/waiting area is very small. The toys and chairs for the children were very dirty, my 5 year old didn't want to play with them. The nurses were very nice and patience with my child. The dentist on the other had rushed through the exam and suggested I have my child sedated to fill cavities. I'm still unsure how I felt about the visit overall.

My two year old got the bad dental genes in the family. Dr Sue was amazing! Her staff is very friendly and professional. I liked how Dr Sue took time out to talk TO me and not at me. She was very present and patient. I witnessed her dealing with a couple of difficult situations with parents who had trouble seeing their children suffering through dental procedures and she handled them really well though she looked really flustered after. I love her!

I've only seen Dr. Soon once but I am already looking forward to our future appointments. She has so much energy, was wonderful with my 12 month old, sang to her during the check-up procedure, very warm, comforting, and I felt she gave me her honest opinion. Also, the office staff was very friendly and professional. Had a great first dentist experience (for the little one) here.

We saw another dentist in the practice. She was great with my daughters. For my 4 year old, this was the third dentist she has seen and the first one who was able to successfully examine and clean her teeth. The dentist let my 2yo and 4 yo sit on my lap for the whole exam. She explained everything and sang songs while she cleaned their teeth. They were comfortable and we will return.

Dr Hwang may be the best pediatric dentist I have ever met even with the obstacles they faced opening a new location. It was a rough start for them but they handled themselves with grace and professionalism. They explained what happened, were kind, and were still smiling. Dr Hwang is so nice, very informative, and passionate about what she does. The children loved it. Yes, they loved their visit to the dentist! That speaks volumes to me.

I definitely recommend Dr. Hwang! It is very surprising how difficult many pediatric dentist are with kids (ironic), however Dr. Hwang is very patient and willing to talk over any issues with both the patient and parent. In addition, the office staff was so welcoming and the design of the office is very cute!! The wait time was about 10-15 minutes. Come early because parking might be difficult to find!!
