Today's visit was very brief, since it was my third visit in two weeks. Ximin Yang just wanted to check onthe progress of the lower left side of my mouth where the work had been done.

This visit, like the one a week ago, was brief, since I only needed a checkup on how my mouth wasdoing after the complicated work was done two weeks ago.

I was there for crowns on three teeth in the lower left side of my mouth, but was charged for only two. For the most part it went well, but there were two problems caused in part by the fact thatthe teeth being treated are rather far back in my mouth. One was that she had to put her fingers fairly deep in my mouth in order to be able to see properly, and this caused me to retch twice. Fortunately my breakfast was digested by this time, or I probably would have vomited. The second was that towards the end she pushed a sharp instrument into the palate, again to be able to see, I think, and this definitely caused a bit of pain and bleeding. I think she needs a duller or flatter instrument for this purpose, but maybe one was not available.

The information on the door says that they open at 8:00, so it seems like at least the receptionist should have been there at 8:45 when I showed up for my 9:00 appointment. But the office was closed until the twodentists showed up simultaneously at 9:00. And the receptionist was still not there when I left, so I haven't yet paid. Maybe this was just a one-day problem. Ximin Yang was very attentive and helpful as usual and explained with pictures and in great detail about recessions of the gums for just a few teeth. I have to come again in a month to have this treated.

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.
