Biography

One of my greatest joys is the expression of my professional life. I have chosen dentistry as a career and it is an amazing fit for me. It has given me the opportunity to share my talents on a one to one basis each day. Whether I am in the office, or teaching, I am proud to offer the best the field of dentistry has to offer to those around me.

    Dr. Young is a very caring Dentist. She truly takes an interest in teaching patients how to take care of their teeth. Her office staff and Assistants are just as caring. I recently received two crowns, a deep cleaning and bought a pretty cool electric toothbrush. The only reason I bought the toothbrush is because Jewel taught me how to use it and I was amazed how clean my teeth felt after the "lesson." I highly recommend Dr. Young and appreciate having such a fuss made over my dental hygiene. I am taking care of my teeth now and I feel like smiling all of the time now!

    The customer service was amazing! I felt very comfortable, especially for being a new patient and not having gone to the dentist in more than a year.

    A truly friendly and caring dental service. It's obvious that this office cares about you and wants you to have a good experience. Not just in how they treat you, but how much they care about your dental health. I felt both comforted and also educated/informed.

    She is so kind. She is very respectful and wants you to understand how to care for your mouth and teeth. Who knew I was using my electric toothbrush improperly causing damage to my gums. Her team of gems showed me the way! My teeth are shiny clean. I am confident that I will get great care with each visit. Thank you Dr. Young, Kristen, Patrice, and Jennifer!

    Very knowledgeable and kind. I stated my concerns with my previous dentist in that I felt they over treated some issues and didn't address or take seriously what I was concerned about. Dr. Young will treat you the way she wants to be treated: she listens to concerns and will only take steps that are necessary for your overall health. Her staff is exceptionally kind and friendly. She's my new dentist for sure.

    Dr. Young was the best dentist I’ve been to and all the staff at her practice are thoughtful, kind, and amazing. Dr. Young makes sure you leave your visit well informed about your own teeth and mouth and with a treatment plan. She is kind and patient with teaching you and walking you through the background information and making sure you are comfortable with every aspect. I can’t say I’ve ever looked forward to going to the dentist before (and hadn’t been in several years), but I am excited for my next appointment!

    Dr Young was very nice and her office was great. When I first got there, they asked if I wanted bottled water - room temperature or cold (it was a cold day)!! The waiting room had some toys and lots of books for kids to play with and the front staff even offered to look after my kids while I was getting my examination. I took one star away because Dr Young was 30 minutes late for my appointment. She talks a long time to each patient which I thinks pushes her other patients behind schedule. My cleaning/checkup was over 2 hours because she insisted on explaining everything. I've had cleanings elsewhere that are typically 30-45 minutes, but she says her standard cleaning is one hour minimum because she likes to take her time each appointment.

    The best dental experience I've ever had. She was so patient and informative. She explained everything she was doing and even went over my X-rays and pictures of my teeth in details. She said "I like to explain to my clients as if you were my family" and I really believe her. No other dentist would have ever went over my dental needs like she did. On my way out, one of her patient chimed in after I said it was the best experience I've ever had and he said his whole family have been going to Dr. Young for decades!

    Dr. Young was amazing. She walked me through my exams and helped me be to be medically aware of my dental health. She explained what each part of my x-rays meant, how my teeth should look, and what were potential issues that may have caused any issues. I would highly recommend Dr. Young to anyone seeking a dentist they can trust.

    The team was extremely thorough, and attended to everything needed. They are all super sweet and helpful, and communicative by phone or e-mail, whichever you prefer. Very easy to work with in understanding insurance benefits and out of pocket expenses. Give yourself plenty of time for your initial visit, as a good thorough job does take some time. Thank you to the entire staff for a great experience.

    Dr. Young is excellent. I drive all the way from Oceanside because her and her staff are really lovely. The dentist isn't usually a very pleasant place but they really do the best job at trying to change that. She is great at listening to your concerns and working with you to make sure you are fully aware of and comfortable with everything happens during your visit.
