About Dr. Joyce Kahng

Dr. Joyce Kahng delivers dental excellence to each patient in her care, focusing on the patient's individual 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 patient 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.  She invests in modern dental technology to create a syringe-less dental environment, utilizing a Computer-Assisted Anesthesia System.   With advanced technical expertise, she provides a provide a metal-free facility, including proper removal and isolation of silver fillings.

Each year Dr. Kahng takes many hours of continuing education courses, at conferences and meetings, as well as staying abreast of the latest published research findings. Knowing it’s essential to stay current on developments in oral healthcare, she seeks out courses that will most benefit her patients. This ensures each person receives the highest level of care, and the strongest treatment options, available. Growing up in a Christian household, giving back is a priority to Dr. Kahng.  While in dental school, Dr. Kahng and 3 other leaders headed an International Mission Trip to Fiji for a team of 30 dental students to treat hundreds of villagers.  During the weekends, she also participates in the AYUDA program, supervising dental students as they volunteer to provide dental care for underserved children at elementary schools throughout Los Angeles and Orange County.
