About

I graduated from the University of Western Ontario in 2014 with a Bachelor of Medical Science Honours degree. I then continued on at Western's Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry to earn my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2018. I have a caring demeanour and am dedicated to ensuring my patients have a positive dental experience every time they step into our office.

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

Patients should choose me as their provider because I consider myself to be approachable, friendly and caring. I focus on patient oriented dental care, providing detailed options and explanations for any questions/concerns/treatments my patient may have, with treatment options tailored to that individual.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

The top three treatments I focus on are comprehensive care (caries/cavity management with fillings, maintenance of good oral health, patient educations); root canal therapy (always trying to save the tooth, if possible); and extractions (if the tooth is unrestorable or if the patient wishes to have the tooth removed after an informed explanation of treatment options).

What are you proud of in your practice?

In our practice, I'm proud of being able to provide dental treatments in-house for our patients. We have state of the art technology and dedicated team members, allowing us to provide the highest quality dental care each patient deserves.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I enjoy treating patient's' chief complaint or concerns. When my patients are happy and satisfied with the result of their treatment, that brings an additional satisfaction to the dental work I provide for them. I also enjoy treating cavities with basic composite restorations - having the ability to prevent cavities from progressing with more conservative filings to promote good oral health and maintenance of teeth before more aggressive forms of treatment are needed (root canals or extractions). Aesthetic cases are always fun as well - seeing my patients happier with their smile is very rewarding, both for the patient and myself.

    Dr. Park is extremely nice and my appointment with her was quite pleasant. She took the time not only to explain everything to me but also to let me ask as many questions as I needed in order to fully understand. She's a gem. (:

    Doctor Park did a fantastic job accommodating me for an oral exam and cleaning. The whole team is very professional and experts at what they do, so much so I’ve already booked my next cleaning in January. I strongly recommend The Richmond Dental Centre.

    Dr Park was amazing. She took time to explain to me everything about my dental health (with photos of my teeth) which no other dentist ever had in my 40years. She gave me tips and tools to prevent further damages and explained procedures I might need in the future. She is very good in work and definitely the best dentist I’ve ever had. Thank you!

    Dr. Park was very kind and very clear about what her and her team were doing. It was so great to have someone sit with me with my xrays and walk through everything she saw there, her recommendations for moving forward, and the reasonings behind her recommendations.

    In general, the practice was very clean and made me feel safe and welcome. After taking a few images and x-rays all the findings were explained to me in great detail. There was no rush on the dentists end and all my concerns and questions were answered.

    Excellent attention and care!! I've not had a dental visit in a really long time, and felt super comfortable with Dr Park and her colleagues. She took her time and explained everything to me, and I felt I was in good hands throughout my entire visit. The staff here are all super welcoming and professional. Highly recommend them and looking forward to my next visit :)

    Honestly can't express my gratitude enough for Dr. Park. Best dental appointments I've had in a decade. Not only did she walk through everything that was going to happen, but was honest about the procedure and the options I had. Unlike my last two dentists who were always trying to push unnecessary work, she laid everything out and what things should be fixed and what didn't need to be worked on unless I felt discomfort. It's been a long while since I've had a dentist I could trust and I'm very glad to have found this office!

    I’ve been to many dental offices and this is the first time the dentist actually sat down with me and went through all my x-rays in detail. It felt transparent and informative. I also enjoy how each room has TVs with Netflix on it.

    I had a great experience with Dr. Park. She was thorough with her assessment and took the time to explain the different options for my conditions. I appreciate that I didn't feel any pressure to commit to any surgical procedure since a less invasive option was available in the interim.

    Booking was quick, the examination was quite minimally unpleasant, which is unusual for a dentist's appointment for me. The doctor was quite knowledgeable and provided me with all the information I asked for, or needed to know. I was unable to get treated at the facility due to the requirements of the procedure, but a good referral was provided.

    I've never had an extensive service for a first-time dental check. This clinic clearly knows how to make their patients feel important and get their money's worth. The dental assistant was very sweet and kind in getting my x-rays and photographs, and Dr. Park was very informative about my teeth and reassured and educated me very well. It's great to see health practitioners care about their patients and I'm glad I got to be one at this clinic.

They accommodated me right away, were extremely thorough and took the time to explain everything that was taking place during my appointment. They provided a very friendly and comfortable atmosphere from the moment I walked in to the moment I left. As someone who gets nervous for dental appointments, this made me feel at ease. I knew I was going to need some work done and Dr. Park made sure to walk me through everything in detail and gave me multiple options and next steps. Thank you all for making this process a whole lot easier than I expected!
