Dr. Joyce Kahng delivers dental excellence to each patient in her care, focusing on the person’s unique needs and goals. Along with her team, Dr. Kahng understands the best patient experience, and the strongest treatment outcome, comes from personalized care. That’s why she spends time getting to know each patient as an individual, learning about their overall health, as well as their hobbies and lifestyle. This allows her to develop individual care plans that help the person attain optimal oral health, and a beautiful smile, in a timely, comfortable manner.
Dr. Kahng has built a dental practice that’s modern, spa-like, and patient-focused, where the emphasis is on painless, comfortable care that improves the patient’s life. She’s particularly focused on working with patients who have dental-related anxiety. Understanding that prior negative experiences can lead to a person avoiding care, and therefore needing intensive treatment to restore their oral health, Dr. Kahng advocates for a gradual approach at a pace where the patient is comfortable. By taking the time to build a relationship based on mutual trust, respect, and open communication, she ensures a patient is able to relax and know they are safe during their visits.
