I truly hate visiting the dentist and there was only one dentist in my lifetime who was gentle to my teeth...untilI found Dr. Youngmo Kang. I have gone to him for cleaning, whitening (wedding discount!), and recently for cavity fills and he has been professional and GENTLE in all of my visits. Dr. Kang is knowledgeable, thorough, meticulous, and cares deeply about professionalism and quality of work. On top of that, he and his staff are extremely nice and pleasant. I cannot recommend Dr. Kang enough. If you hate going to the dentist, take a chance with Dr. Kang - he might be able to change that!

Dr. Kang and his team are the best! They're kind, the office is clean and comfortable, and services are always thoroughly explained and done quickly and as painlessly as dental work can probably be. The equipment is all new since they'vemoved to their Broadway address about a year ago, and Dr. Kang seems to continually keep up with the latest tech and techniques. I got my Invisilign from him and it was reasonably priced. At the end, he ordered a retainer made of stiffer plastic that's more durable while friends of mine said their dentists just told them to keep using their last tray. I also appreciate that don't push unnecessary work. A few years ago, my sister's dentist said she had 10+ cavities that needed to be filled and went to see Dr. Kang for a second opinion when she came to visit in New York. Dr. Kang said any cavities she had were tiny and could resolve themselves with better brushing and fluoride rinse. It's been a few years since then, and none of the small cavities she had turned into ones that needed filling.

Youngmo Kang is the best dentist I have ever had. They used updated technology which requires you to wear glasses to protect your eyes from water splash, but are extremely gentle. The dentist and his team were understanding of the sensitivelyI had on one side of my mouth and gave me a numbing gel so I wouldn't feel any discomfort. He is also very reserved when it comes to filling cavities. If it's doesn't NEED to be filled, he doesn't flag it as an issue. LOVE HIM.

Summary: Smart, caring and seemingly highly-skilled dentist • Dr. Kang cleaned my teeth as opposed to an assistant which was a nice change. He was extremely thorough, focused, gentle and open about what he was doing and why. No up-selling onproducts or services. Dr. Kang gave attention to matters previous dentist had ignored like an overgrown gum due to underlying plaque build-up that I'd just sort of accepted and am glad he fixed. I really got the impression he cared and for my time there I was his only concern. • Very clean and modern facility • Friendly staff

First time in my life that I actually enjoyed the dentist. The assistant was really calm and helpful, asked me about pain areas and past history. She explained them to Dr. Kang, who then treated me and did my cleaning. Heexplained everything he was going to do before he did it, then checked along the way to make sure I was comfortable (which most dentists never do). He gave me step by step tips to maintain and improve my teeth before recommending I spend more money, which is always helpful to know at home remedies first. And finally, the offices are actually really nice and new inside which is hard to find in the city. This was a really great experience and I’ll go back.

This is, by far and away, the best dentist visit we’ve ever had. From the receptionist to the doctor, it was a smooth, kind, efficient process. Dr. Kang takes his time with appointments and we felt thoroughly cared for all andall of our needs addressed and then some. What a gem. Who knew going to the dentist could be an awesome experience? Is it time for our sixth month check up yet? :)

Dr Kang and his team provide the best service, hands down. From the time I scheduled my appointment to the second I walked out the office door, I was treated promptly, professionally, patiently, and with warmth. While other dentists I’ve beento have had their assistants do the majority of the work and come in for 2 minutes to say hello, do a quick check, and leave, Dr Kang not only came in to say hello soon after I sat down, but he did a thorough exam, did the cleaning himself, and patiently explained in detail some of the issues affecting my jaw, how to prevent it from getting worse, and answered all my questions in the process. His bedside manner is second to none, and this is much appreciated, especially after having such mediocre care from other dentists in the past. I was blown away by how willing he was to spend time to make sure I understood what was going on and what my options were. The other people from his office with whom I had contact, Gabriela and Astrid, were just as friendly and professional. Beyond all that, his office is clean and modern-looking, with lots of natural light, instead of sterile and unwelcoming with rooms flooded by fluorescent light. I couldn’t be happier about my first experience with Dr Kang and his team, and I look forward to my next appointment with them.
