I had my top two wisdom teeth removed with local anasthesia and it was almost completely pain free. She is super talented and experienced and made sure I was comfortable the entire time. I only cried once !

They were honest and considerate, and quite frankly are not looking for fillings or work that is not necessary. I appreciated the way I was treated and will be taking them on as my dentist of choice.

I was the only patient in the waiting room, so I got in right away. The purpose of the visit was to replace a temporary cap with a permanent one. A little cleaning followed by a picture and we were ready to go. It didn't take long.

I was served right away, since I was the only patient at that hour. There were several other people helping Dr. Yang today. That was helpful, since I wasn't done an hour later, and another patient arrived, so Dr. Yang hadto go back and forth a bit. The other dentist as well as two assistants did some of the treatment. And things were put into my mouth that required waiting time afterwards. But it all seemed well-organized and effective.

I have been a patient of Dr. Yang's for the past 10 years. She makes you feel very comfortable and and gives you the best dentistry she can offer. She is very honest about any treatments that are needed and explainsprocedures thoroughly. As a periodontist as well, she gives my teeth the best cleaning in a gentle manner. Her office is about an hour from my home, and the drive is worth every minute to see a dentist that you can trust.

Seemed like I did not receive a real "dental" check-up. It felt more like a teeth cleaning than an actual exam by a doctor.

Very prompt and orderly process. Very professional. Dr. Yang has an friendly bedside manner. It was an enjoyable appointment. Only cons: the appointment felt a little rushed. All my questions were answered fully, and she did a good job of askingif I had anything else to ask. But I could feel an overall sense of "the clock is ticking" during our appointment. A little more so than normal. Overall very good. Will visit again.

Overall, this doctor treated her patient seriously and responsively and I like her professional bedside manner. If originally the administration staff could take the paperwork as much responsibly as the doctor did after she noticed my concern,I would mark this place as one of the straight five-star dental clinics I've ever visited. At first, I didn't feel comfortable with this place especially due to a mistake made by clinic administrator and lack of professional explanation and communication with insurance company. I am overcharged since the treatment of period scale for four parts (UR UL LL LR) was submitted at one visit but insurance only covers two parts per visit, which made me end up with paying rest of two parts by myself, believe me it's a difference between hundreds and tens of dollars. But I'm satisfied that this doctor followed up with me after I called, I was told that the insurance company didn't provide the clinic detailed explanation of my plan policy or clear instruction for billing, which actually sounds very different from what I heard from insurance company representative when I called them. Who's happening here? I actually don't know but I've learned my lesson and am also very glad that problem got solved. This is about money but not only about it, since what patient would feel about a medical professional comes from a whole package of everything (including attitude toward work etc. ) once the patient walks into the clinical office. Update: I've heard from this doctor that refund is on the way. Thanks for her follow up and help on taking care of this.

Dr. Yang was very caring on my child's first visit. As a professional, she has excellent bedside manner. We had an urgent issue, and Dr. Yang's office was able to fit us in on the same day that we called whenour regular dentist happened to be off. I highly recommend Dr. Yang and have nothing but great things to say about her staff.

Dr. Yang gave me a consultation first, and then Dr. Hu performed the necessary work. It wasclear that they made quality and doing things right the first time a priority. I would recommend them.

Dr. Yang is very detailed I would absolutely recommend her to anyone. Not only has she helped with current issues she has fixed some problems that another dentist caused. One of those problems was a crown put on by another dentist.It was way bigger than the tooth it replaced so it looked awkward and threw off my smile. To top it off it kept popping off. When Dr. Yang went to re-cement it she noticed the pole that was there for support was way too short. So instead of just re-cementing it like every other dentist had she took the time to drill into it and reset the entire base. Even the temporary crown felt sturdier than the original crown ever did. When I got the permanent crown in it was the right size so it fixed the look of my mouth. The size of the crown matches perfectly. It’s back to where it should be so there is no longer an out of place tooth making my smile awkward. The permanent crown looks and feels great. Yay! I also had a root canal done at the same time. My jaw and bite are a tiny bit sore today (as to be expected) but other than the normal pain it looks great and I am confident the crown will be perfect. If you are looking for someone to coddle you and hide the truth she isn’t for you. She is brutally honest but her honest opinion is totally worth the great work. I read she was hard to understand. I disagree. I am English speaking only and didn't have much trouble understanding her. When I did I said so and she repeated her self. I understood her the second time. To top off the great experience done by Dr. Yang; Melissa her assistant is wonderful she is nice and works well with Dr. Yang. She is careful with what she does and it shows. She hasn’t held my lip or gum uncomfortably by her nails or sprayed water down my throat; unlike previous assistants I have encountered elsewhere. I highly recommend them both!

Good bedside manners, but definitely wasn't thrilled that she completely forgot who I was despite having been their multiple times. Also, not sure if she is just trying to rush me out the door, but largely ignored my fears of issueswith my mouth. Without any real reassurance but her word, I am skeptical and will eventually find a new dentist.

I was seen at the Arlington office for an emergency crown. My tooth (middle front!) had broken that morning and I had a 7 p.m. meeting scheduled with a Senator. Doctor Yang, and her associate Doctor Hu, dropped what they weredoing to perform a surgical procedure including root canal treatment and installing the crown. I was able to meet the Senator, along with several of my journalist colleagues, looking good and feeling great.

Dr. Yang is essentially the world's most efficient dentist. She's also very good at what she does--she's been my dentist for almost four years now. I've never needed anything more than a cleaning from her, but she does that speedily andalways gives me little tips on keeping my teeth clean with a permanent retainer. Her staff is kind and there's never a long wait.

Dr. Yang gets right down to business and doesn't hesitate to tell you what the problems are and what you could do better to avoid them. The treatment never causes more than possibly a tiny twinge of pain for a fraction of a second.

The biggest problem with her is communication, Any time I go there without any conversation she started cleaning teeth. She done a deep cleaning on my teeth and she made big gap between the teeth. Please ask question before taking any cleaning.
