Dr. Sung Wook Yoon has always wanted to spend his life improving the condition of oral health for others. He believes all patients’ teeth are important, and the proper care you give them is a great investment into their healthy future. Dr. Yoon believes that the best dental care for a patient comes from paying close attention to what is desired by the patient and then, taking time to partner with them to come up with a treatment plan that will satisfy their desires without compromising values or ethics in the delivery of care. He also believes that nothing can be more important than educating the patient about the process, procedures, outcomes, and long-term effects of patients’ decisions.
