About

Dr. Maeng is very passionate about his profession and he loves dentistry. His vision is to build long-term relationship with his patients through comfort, compassion, transparency, and high quality dentistry. He strives to provide high quality dental care with advanced technology and compassionate team members. He has completed continuing education courses in implantology, orthodontics, and endodontics. He is certified in Invisalign®️ clear removable aligners. He also devotes many hours in reading dental journals and publications in all aspects of dentistry.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

Coming to the dentist can be a very stressful experience for some people as I have experienced it myself. I want to treat patients the way I want to be treated. My goal is to build long-term relationship with my patients through comfort, compassion, transparency, and high quality dentistry.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

I focus on variety of treatments, however my top three are cosmetic, oral surgery, and endodontics.

What are you proud of in your practice?

I strive to provide high quality dental care with advanced technology and with our compassionate team. I care about patient's comfort first and will do everything to make sure their anxiety and pain goes away. I use dental microscope, digital scanners, cbct, electric hand pieces, and intra-oral cameras in our office to treat and diagnose patients. I am proud that I use the state of the art technology to achieve the best outcome.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I enjoy treating patients in all aspects of dentistry, because I love my job. I enjoy doing restorative works, such as fillings and crowns. Also, I enjoy doing oral surgery and endodontics. Lately, I have been using invisalign, whitenings, and veneers to improve patient's cosmetic needs.

    Definitely loved my experience with this dentist. He didn't grill me at all about all my problematic teeth. I came in because I started to feel pain and his schedule was open. I asked for a dental plan to see how much it would cost to fix all my remaining issues. He organized it by what he thinks needs to get done asap and least problematic at the end. He also shows you how much he charges, how much the insurance will cover and how much I pay out of pocket. His chart was super helpful. Making him my regular dentist now!

    Loved how straightforward Dr. Jin was. The technology (pictures of every issue he mentioned, Netflix on to distract me) was very helpful in getting me on the same page. Staff was great and Dr. Jin was efficient and clear. My only regret is not asking what x-rays I needed instead of just going with the flow. Not certain I needed them all, and would have loved avoiding the extra cost but overall the experience was GREAT.

    Dr. Maeng was very friendly and non-judgmental about my not going to the dentist for a while! Chris the dental technician was also friendly and helpful with my appointment. I had a good experience and would recommend Urban Smiles—as much as I could recommend going to the dentist haha.

    Great experience, the dentist explains everything very well & makes sure to answer any questions before proceeding. The dental assistant helps relieve any feelings of anxiety you may have from visiting the dentist.

    Honestly such a clear and straightforward experience. I felt well informed about what procedure needed to happen and was laid out the costs up front beforehand so there weren’t any surprises. Highly recommend for a clean, and great dentist experience

    Aside from simply the nature of the service I went in for, I enjoyed my visit to Urban Smiles. They have a friendly receptionist (I didn't catch her name, sorry ) Chris, the head assistant helped me feel very comfortable and Dr. Maeng was a kind and experienced professional. I booked a same day appointment and the hours they have worked great with my schedule. The office was clean and tidy with modern X-rays and entertainment options. I was walked clearly through my treatment plan and Dr. Maeng even waived a portion of my bill. All in all, I had a great first experience with Urban Smiles which was really important because I hadn't been to one in so long because of a horrible one. I would definitely recommend! There's also a Jewels right across from this location which made filling my pain prescriptions easy! Thanks again! Thanks again!

    Office was extremely clean and high-end. Staff was friendly and accommodating. My scheduled cleaning and exam was thorough yet quick - perfect to get in and out on my lunch break. Jin was friendly and calming. He was gentle while cleaning my teeth which I appreciated; made going to the dentist for the first time in over a year very relaxing. Already scheduled my next appointment!
