Patient Testimonials

I love the Smile Dental Center! The staff, dental assistants, and dentists are all so sweet and the service is amazing! I would definitely recommend this office to anyone, kids or adults. The playroom for kids is also a great feature 🙂

I haven’t been to the dentist for years the last time I went I was young and the dentist made me feel uncomfortable about my teeth. After coming to the smile center I completely got over my fear of the dentist the staff is amazing and they make you feel very comfortable like family excellent dentist office they even have fun games and movies for kids and myself (im a big kid)

We came here over 2 years ago and will never leave! My son required braces and my husband and I got all our overdue dentistry taken care of here. There are multitudes proffessional staff here to care for each of our individual needs. We are very happy with all the friendly, gentle, and expert services we have received in their state of the art facility.

We switched to Smile Dental Center about 1 year ago and we’re so glad we did. The office has a very kid friendly approach with child decor, tvs, even video game consols in the waiting area! The dentists are friendly, and encouraging. My kids actually brush their teeth better than ever before. We liked them so much that my husband and I moved to the same office (they have a separate waiting area for grown-ups!) The front office staff always address you by name and even take on those insurance issues with a smile. to top it all off, I can schedule appointments on weekends! For busy moms, and those that just want going to the dentist to be a nice experience, I highly recommend the Smile Dental Center!

My kids and I really love Smile Dental Center. My older son sees the orthodontist, and my younger son is seeing one of the dentists. They actually ENJOY going. All of the orthodontists, dentists and staff are super friendly and helpful. My kids love the movies playing on the large screens. The office is very clean, very comfortable, and seems state-of-the-art. With all of these benefits, I would have expected the price of braces and dental visits to be relatively high, but they are actually CHEAPER than other places around. We shopped around for braces, and this place was BY FAR the best value and the most pleasant. Highly recommended.

Been coming here for over a year now and I am very impressed with how much this place has evolved! When I started coming here, it was just Dr. Yoon and Dr. Cho as the main dentists.

The place is clean and very child friendly when you step in. They do have an “adult” entrance where it’s a little more quiet (the comfier couch in on this side by the way). You are quickly greeted with a smile and usually will be called in for your appointment very briefly, where you are greeted with a huge TV for your viewing pleasure (there are some chairs with a TV mounted on to the ceiling while you’re being cleaned or whatever.

Dr. Yoon was able to get my teeth realigned with her version of Invisalign molds within the time frame she promised me. Very friendly and doesn’t pressure you to do anything you don’t want to be done to your teeth. Sadly, I won’t be seeing her as often since my teeth are back to their correct spots.

Dr. Cho is my general dentist and haven’t had any complaints with my checkups. She’s also friendly and very easy to chat with…unless she’s removing the plaque or tartar buildup from your mouth.

Quick, clean, and welcoming, I would highly recommend visiting this place and making it your primary dental center. I’m sure Olga or any of the smiling staff at the front desk can assist (or persuade) you to transfer.

Very detailed, very nice people! ~Eric W


The office and staff are first rate. Very impressed with the time and care received at my initial visit. Dr. Lei displayed concern re: my best interest/concerns regarding cost – that is appreciated in a world where everyone is just out to make a profit,. ~ Anon


First time here for my two kids . And everyone here is so nice. I just knew my toddlers were not going to cooperate but everyone here was soo nice and some how made them cooperate. (Sorry I’m so bad with names) . I can’t wait to go back as I know my kids will do just fine. Keep up the great work!!! 🙂 ~Audrina M


I like the service from the front office staff to the back office staff. Dentists are wonderful. ~Anon

Thank you!

This was my daughter’s first time at the Dentist. She is 4 years old and it was a great experience for her. The staff is very friendly and they kept her entertained and interested at all times.

They did a very thorough check up and cleaning, including Xrays. My daughter had so much fun, she can’t wait to go back. ~Amanda P


Staff is always very friendly and professional. We’ve tried a few different dentist offices since moving to the Bay area ain 2009, but we just never felt comfortable with the quality of care provided, until we found Smile Dental Center.


As always it was a wonderful experience for my daughters and me. I love this place. It is clean and everyone is so kind and gentle. My girls don’t mind coming to the dentist at all. They get excited! ~Anon


Very kid friendly, my 4 year old was a happy patient. ~Wylie B

Great staff and service. 03/19/2013, Anah

Dr Cho and Olga, office manager are wonderful. Service is great and cost is reasonable. I am having three implants done and with Dr Cho she kept me informed with the process.

Dr Chiang is the best dentist…02/18/2013, lucasl
Dr Chiang is the best dentist who is excellent with kids and thinks in the best interest of the patient. My son is 3 and it is not an easy task to get him to sit patiently anywhere, especially more so with tools in his mouth. But Dr Chiang was able to get my son to sit through repairing 3 cavities in a session without even using laughing gas. I’m very impressed and would not go anywhere else. I highly recommend Dr.Chiang.


We are very glad with everything…01/30/2013, raquels
We are very glad with everything in Smile Dental Center.
I went with my daughter, she is 3 years old and she is very happy with the dentist, she told me that the dentist is her friend. Behaviour was excellent and the dentist explained step by step everything that she was going to do in my daughter’s mouth.
One week later we came back, on this time for my little one, he is one year and I thought that he wouldn’t open his mouth, but I was wrong! I’m completely surprised becuase he was very helpful and he was happy with his new toothbrush!! I’m very glad with our pediatric dentist.
The stuff that they have is really new and everything is super clean. Besides they have a lot of toys and full screen for the kids! It’s a really nice place!


Finally found a dental office for my family !! Ryko 01/05/2013


We love our dentists here! Allgood Family 12/11/2012

We love our dentists here, the facility and all the staff. It is so convenient to go to to an office that my kids can go to and my husband and I. They also have orthodontic services available which is fantastic! The Saturday hours make it incredibly convenient for working parents as well.

Great Experience! Alberto  Saravia, CA, 11/21/2012

I had my first appointment last week at the dental clinic, and I had a really good experience. My dentist Dr. Shirley and her assistant Andrea were really kind with me they understood my needs and what I wanted to do with my teeth I suffered of stains on my teeth and I said suffered because after be treated by Dr. Shirley I don’t suffer of that anymore. And really happy with the results.


Great Pediatric Dental Exam !  Anonymous 11/13/2012

My daughter is nearly 3. She’s had two dental exams so far and has always cried. I’m not sure if it’s because she’s recently come out of her shell and become much more adventurous and/or if it’s because we switched to a new dental office but she had a blast at her recent appointment with Dr. Jessica. We will definitely continue to take our kids to this Dental Center. Dr. Jessica and her staff made my toddler feel safe and welcome, and were very good about explaining what they were going to be doing at every step during her exam. When my infant son is old enough, we will be taking him in, as well and are hoping both children will foster healthy dental habits moving forward.


Excellent service as always! Darren  Thorneycroft 10/08/2012
Dr. Cho and her associates were thorough and precise as always. Dental work is never fun but their professionalism and friendly approach ease the pain. Literally and metaphorically


OUR WHOLE FAMILY LOVES SMILE!!!

Rebecca  Cuznar 08/18/2012
We recently moved to the area and had to find a dentist and orthodontist for our family. During extensive research we found Smile Dental. The front office personnel are the best ~ always friendly, happy and smiling. The office is amazing ~ my kids want to go even when they don’t have an appt and the staff is always willing to keep and eye on them. 3D TV, major video games, toys, puzzle, drinks, snacks ~ what more could you ask for! No kids…enter on the other side and sit on the plush couch and indulge in an adult movie over a cup of hot tea or cappuccino… Once inside the office, the equipment is top notch and everything is explained to you. Dr Yoon and Dr Cho are amazing in their field and their work is impeccable. My husband, who is hard to please praises Dr Cho and my kids love Dr Yoon and I who had 2 very horrible and extremely painful experiences with a previous dentist several years ago and am so very leery of dentists…well I must say I am completely impressed with Dr Cho and have had very painless experiences in all my visits (and NO gas – which I always use even to get my teeth cleaned!). So understand that I do not give compliments easily or often… I would refer everyone to this office


They are the best!  TAUASESE  FELISE 11/26/2012

They always go out of their way to make sure my visit is always comfortable and the staff is great! I recommend them to everyone of my friends and family!  Dr Cho did my implant and I could not be more satisfied. She is such a perfectionist that when I thought it looked we went above and beyond to make it look better. I am very confident and happy with the outcome of her extraordinary work.
