    I was introduced to Dr. Athiprayoon through the Opencare site which I found was a seamless and pleasant process. My 5yo was seen for an evaluation and cleaning for school enrollment. Dr. Athiprayoon was warm and gentle in every manner. We are scheduled to follow up for additional services and are looking forward to a long term relationship here. I must add that I didnt realize she is a "premium in-network PPO" which means rates will be slightly higher than the average PPO, so do check with your insurance company regarding that first.

    Dr Athiprayoon was Excellent! Painless cleaning with Xrays. I can't say that for most places I have been to before. She was very informative. I was on a time constraint to pick up my kid & she finished perfectly with time to spare. Most other places I have been to take there sweet time. The office is pleasant with a nice view on the dentist chair. The staff is very helpful & professional. I highly recommend.

    Had a wonderful first experience at Fun Dental Care yesterday! I booked a super last minute appointment and the doctor confirmed my appt within the hour. I arrived and was greeted warmly. After initial ex-rays by the hygienist the doctor came right in and gave me a detailed exam including conclusions from the ex rays taken moments ago. I learned things about the anatomy of my teeth that no dentist has ever told me before! Dr. Athiprayoon really knows her stuff. She was also very warm in demeanor and down to earth. We were laughing throughout the appointment and I left with very helpful tips for great self care going forward that had never been shared with me before. Go see them you won’t regret it!

    It’s been about a year since I been back at the dentist, I let Dr, Athiprayoon know I have high anxiety and nerves when visiting. She eased me my telling me what she what she was going to be doing step by step and asked if I was comfortable the entire visit. Her and her staff are very friendly and welcoming. Thank you for a stress free visit Fun Dental Care.

    Haven't gone to the dentist in 1.5 years. I was scared to do a cleaning because of my last dentist rushing to use the needle/pencil like tool to clean the tar. Overall didn't feel pain and no shots or numbing at all. Very careful hands.

    Dr Chonthida was on a vacation and no one told me until I was signing the initial forms. I had even confirmed my appointment by calling to the reception. I consulted Dr Gao instead, which went good.

    Dr. A was extremely thorough, kind, knowledgeable and nonjudgemental. I have multiple problems and long history of dental issues. She was patient and I didn't feel rushed. She spent two hours on my consultation making sure I understood all details. Having extremely sensitive teeth and gums it is always nerve racking for me to go to the dentist, and with confidence I can say Dr. A went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable. Would highly recommend her!

    My son had the best experience with Dr. Gong she did the best as she could because my son usually is upset with doctors and she never forced him, never push to doing the work fast, she was calm down and wetting for my son get comfortable and relax. By the way, since I walked in, the person who is in front of the desk was amazing, she was kind and respectful. Highly recommend it.

    I saw Dr. Gao for check up and cleaning and she was very nice and thorough. She explained everything she was going to do before she did it, which was unusual. I’m used to hygienists doing all the work and the dentist coming for a few minutes at the end. I had a good experience and will be bringing my children to see her next week.

    I was at the dentist for a regular cleaning and exam. Dr. Gao performed the dental cleaning and detailed exam very efficiently, making sure that I don't experience any pain during the process. She also patiently explained the results and answered all my questions. Will definitely recommend Fun Dental Care to others.

    I must say I felt like someone who mattered instead of just “another patient.” She genuinely cares about my gum/teeth health! I actually heard statements from her that catered to my individual need (not just the standard, “you need to get your teeth cleaned every 6 months”). I highly recommend this dental practice and thanks to OpenCare for giving me the “incentive” to find a better dentist.

    Dr. Chonthida was able to see what my previous dentist missed. Although I need to get more work done, I am confident in Dr. Chonthida's recommendations for treatment. I appreciate her honesty and detail to care. Office isn't the most up to date and not all days are available, but staff is nice and takes the time to talk with you.
