My Dental Philosophy:
For me, dentistry isn’t just about the teeth. It has everything to do with our entire body. Beautiful & healthy smile not only project a better image of yourself but also improves your self-esteem (mental health) and reduces the risk of life-threatening conditions such as heart disease and stroke, to say the least. I am also a firm believer in prevention and early treatment. Developing good oral habits as a child is crucial in preventing oral diseases throughout life and this will allow anyone to be able to attain a beautiful & healthy smile when they grow up!
What makes me smile:
- Seeing smiles on my kids’ faces
- When I am about to eat delicious food paired with good quality adult beverage J
- Seeing or hearing about the story of rescued animals living a wonderful life in a new loving home
- Being appreciated for the little things I’ve done for other people
It will be soooo hard for me to pick just one! I love food so much!!!! I love trying out different ethnic foods especially when they are homemade.
What do I do when I am not caring for your teeth:
Outside dentistry, most of my time is being spent with my family. My two little kids keep me super busy. If there’s little time left at the end of the day, I usually spend time learning/researching recipes, latest home décor trends, and home organization ideas. I am very much a homebody but I also love travelling around the world whenever I have a chance.
Dr. Yoo is looking forward to seeing you at Ultima Dental Wellness!
