Although no one really enjoys going to the doctor or dentist, we strive to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible. We strongly believe that our patients' comfort is an important part of quality dental care. Our mission is to treat every patient as if they are our only patient. We have a variety of options available to relax even the most anxious patient. This includes oral, inhalation and intravenous sedation.
Dr. Chang believe that your right to choose a dentist is an important freedom. We work closely as a team with your referring dentist. It is not necessary to be referred by another dentist or dental specialist to our office. Some of our finest patients are referred here by friends or other family members.
