    Very detailed oriented. Likes to talk about a dental plan that with surgical and non surgical options. He understood I had limited resources and telling what needs to be with a small budget and what can be upgraded later if the opportunity comes in the future.

    I loved the way his office his office took me right in. He introduced himself and we started on a plan to fix my dental problems. His professional demeanor was excellent. Easy to talk to and he explained everything step by step. I recommend Dr. Young to anyone looking for a friendly professional environment where you dental needs are met.

    Everyone in the office was very pleasant and friendly. The Dentist who saw me made me feel very comfortable with everything that she was about to do which made me feel like I was in good hands. Theu have modern and new equipment and the place seemed very fresh and clean. Parking might be hard to find, but that wouldn't stop me from returning to an outstanding clinic.

    Extremely friendly and talked me through every detail of every step during my visit. Part of his process includes taking digital photographs to support X-ray images which I find very helpful when explaining things. Unlike other dentists I have experienced in the past, he will analyze each image by your side one by one. He also gave me honest recommendations for potential next steps on operations/ care.

    People very nice. First time dentist gave a plan of action on how she was going to fix my teeth issue along with estimate cost since I was on SSDI. I prioritize with the dentist what could I afford since capping a tooth was too expensive so was there another option and I would make the final decision.

    The Doctor is so kind and nice. They treated me with respect and kindness. I would say they are not the spa-like experience, they don't have TV's and fancy equipment, but they are nice and knowledgable.

    Great experience. Dr. Young is friendly and professional. The experience was fantastic! I've been to several great dentists but feel that Dr. Young went the extra mile in informing me of my options, his thoughts, and how to take good care of my dental health. I never felt that I was in the dark and feel better equipped to maintain my oral hygiene. In general it seems to me that he operates with a high sense of integrity which I appreciate. I'd say it's often hard for patients to make accurate assessments of their dentists (After all, they weren't the ones that went to dental school or have any clinical experience), but all in all I felt very comfortable leaving my dental health in the hands of Dr. Young.

    Dr. Young was great. He was really personable and took the time to explain what he was doing and seeing during our check-up and how to then design my oral care routine. He also talked through how insurance factors into everything we were discussing and was transparent throughout our conversation. Going to the dentist is not fun, but Dr. Young was easy to trust and work with and make the visit very pleasant.

    Dr Young cares about his patients holistically. He took the time to explain what the dental issues were and what they could potentially result in. He also understood the more conservative approach that I wanted and did not try to push any additional procedures. I think I found my dentist in SF now!

On our visit, he coached me through the what and why, and also retaught the basics with some dentistry school knowledge. I was impressed by the time he spent and wqlkwd away with clean teeth, and a new tool to keep my gums healthy. Learned a lot and pleased with his work.

  • Over and above.
    Reviewed on May 8th, 2018  •  Verified patient
    He spent the first day showing me slides of various teeth in different stages of decay and how people could lose their teeth without taking care of them. Not just brushing and flossing but in between teeth and under the gum line. He provided me with a GUM Stimulator that does the same job as the metal one he uses for cleaning, showing me how to use it and had me practice with it so that I could do it at home. The second appointment, he did the actual cleaning and more dental education. I have to return this coming Wed. for filling on one of the back teeth.

He was very thorough and did a fantastic job explaining everything he was doing. I felt completely comfortable and learned a lot about my own teeth that I didn't know before. I highly recommend him to anyone without any hesitation.
