I was able to get in quickly. The staff was friendly, kind, and caring which put me at ease and made my visit comfortable (which is unusual for me because I hate going to the dentist). Gentle care would highly recommend!

Dr Chung is amazing and very personable. We have been going to his office for many years. He is always very fair and honest. I have sent at least 8 people to him because of these traits including my extended family and several co-workers.
