During this visit I was seen promptly on time and had a pleasant experience. Went in for my normal 6th month cleaning. Dr. Yi is always professional and takes a few extra minutes to connect with me and really check in on me. I never feel rushed and his care and advice are always great. Best dentist I have had by a long shot!

The members of his staff are pleasant and quite capable in their various functions. Dr. Yi strives for perfection. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Yi is now my "go to" dentist. I wish I had gone to Dr. Yi six months before I did, but I'm very pleased with the guidance I received on my first visit and the work Dr. Yi performed on subsequent visits. To be sure I was making wise choices, I scheduled an appointment with another dentist who independently corroborated Dr. Yi's analysis and recommendations. I returned to Dr. Yi's office for the work needed and am thankful I did. He and his staff are cordial & supremely competent. Kudos.

I have been a patient of Dr. Yi since 2006. This practice has always been professional. Dr. Hi is very patient with me and my inner feelings about the noises of dentistry. He explains everything before it happens and allows me to listen to my own earphones during my visits. I highly recommend Dr. Yi to anyone looking for a dentist. His work is excellent as he is able to match your tooth color and his finished work looks so natural. Thanks Dr. Yi.

Dr. Yi is very personable and has been my dentist for the last 6 years. He's great, takes time to do a good job checking your teeth/oral hygiene and to answer any questions you may have. I've already recommended him to neighbors and friends.

I had my 6 month check up this morning and as usual I was warmly greeted and my check up started promptly. Ex-rays were taken and I commented that the film used was much more comfortable than what I had experienced years ago. The check up went well and included Dr. Yi suggesting a minor corrective procedure which I really appreciated. I have been going to Dr. Yi for many years now and I can not imagine going to another dentist. Sincerely, Dean Tyree

I have recommended Dr. Yi for his professionalism, efficiency and care. I learned about his practice from a friend who fell and broke numerous teeth. He did such a beautiful job repairing them and caring for her. He practices watchful waiting instead of jumping in with procedures to make sure any interventions are truly necessary. I completely trust his judgement. The office staff are friendly, helpful, and also efficient.
