Amazing dentistry services! Dr. Young Park is the most gentle dentist I've ever had! I've been going there for about 3 years now. He takes really good care of his patients so its totally worth the 40 minute drive one way!
Dr. Park did an implant for me. Although this was a long process, they made this a comfortable experience. The staff is great to work with. I love Karen, Cindy, and Nikki. I have always had a fear of DDS, they make my visit comfortable. Thank you for all you do!
