Our Happy Patients
It was my first time back at a dental office in years, but Dr. Yang and his staff were extremely friendly and made me feel comfortable. From the beginning, I knew I trust Dr. Yang and he definitely gives the most suitable advice with the patient in mind.
At the front desk, Tracy can answer all your questions w/ efficiency and patience. The doctor is an expert, very meticulous and professional. Great experience.
The staff here is wonderful. The staff is compassionate, personable, and respectful. They keep you informed throughout the entire procedure so you’re never left in the dark. I recently had a tooth extracted after a different dentist botched a crown replacement, and the entire procedure was pain free. I’m so happy I visited the folks at Ocean Dental…I highly recommend them!
My first time to have Connie as my Dental Hygienist, and I should say that she did a fantastic job. She was very thorough and careful in performing her job. I wasn’t surprised at all of her professionalism and kindness because it must be one of the hiring qualifications at Ocean Dental Group. Dr Lam gave me a positive experience on my very first appointment, that I no longer have the dreadful feeling when I go to my dental appointment. Dr Lam is a wonderful role model of efficient service and genuine kindness for her staff. My two sons are also very satisfied of the care and service provided by both Dr Lam and Dr Yang. I must mention that Ocean Dental Group is the most high tech and above standard Dental Office that I’ve been to after having tried four other places. Thanks to Tracy for being always there with of course her cheerful smile, always helpful and courteous in making my family’s appointment times work for us. Your friendly voice over the phone is always reassuring and welcoming to your service.
We travel over 3,000 miles just to be seen by these amazing dentists. Wouldn’t see anyone else. They are so good, they got my two year old to sit through an entire appointment and then helped keep her entertained while it was my turn to be seen….clearly not part of their job description but definitely a true testament to how they run a very family friendly operation.
Dr. Lam is my family dentist. She is taking very good care of me, my husband, my son, my parents and my brothers and sisters. I feel very comfortable on my every dental appointment. It is very clean and well equipped dental group office. I highly recommend to my friends and co-workers.
Dr. Lam is an excellent dentist. She explains exactly what is going on and helps you understand the necessary care and procedures to preserve your teeth. I lost a filling and texted their website and Traci answered back in the late evening hours to make me an appointment. You couldn’t ask for a more dedicated staff. She is always so pleasant when you go into the office for your visit. I am very happy with the care provided by Dr. Lam and her staff.
The entire staff is AMAZING. Traci is sweet, professional and extremely responsive via email or by phone. Connie has a face and hands of an angel and Dr. Duke is very attentive and passionate with his work. Very excited for my next visit as they made my first visit very enjoyable. They even provided me with a toothbrush and sticker for not making weird sounds or awkward eye contact with them.
P.S. Flossing daily does matter no matter what article The Associated Press reports.
There very nice and comforting, the doctor, doctors assistant, dental hygienist and receptionist. There all wonderful, they treat you like you’re special. The procedures are done professionally and very well. They did everything so well, that there was so little pain that l felt. This is a well kept place, very clean and organized. I enjoyed my visit.
Dr. Yang and his staff are excellent! I cannot recommend him highly enough! If you are afraid of dentists and dental work, Dr. Yang is the dentist for you. He is always kind, calm, and gentle. He explains everything he needs to do in advance and as he is working. The dental work I have had done has been perfect and I have had no problems afterward. Tracy, his receptionist, is a star! She always does her best to get you the day and time that you need and will call you to let you know of cancellations. My husband has had appointments with Dr. Yang and Dr. Lam and he thought they were both outstanding. Run, don’t walk, to Ocean Dental Group, for the best dental work and dentists.
I use to avoid the dentist like the plague, due to my sensitive teeth and low pain tolerance, I have never had a good experience with any other doctor. But Dr. Yang and Dr. Lam are superb at what they do!
Every staff wants to project a shared commitment to great service and customer care–Ocean Dental’s team actually delivers. Everyone I encountered made me feel welcome and heard. I never once felt rushed as each person took the time to introduce herself, set expectations, and address concerns.
It was amazing! Dr. Duke Yang is always the man to the rescue to take care of my teeth. Recently, my partner had a problem with a chipped tooth and he got a last minute appt.! He even remembers what I’m studying in school so that shows me he pays attention to my words unlike some other doctors. Tracy is super helpful with scheduling. She understands I’m a student and prefers a certain time of the week. Oh and the best part is they accept personal checks! Not many places accept those anymore.
The service I received from Dr Winnie was nothing less then amazing. When it comes to seeing dentist I so very afraid, and scared. Dr Winnie it was so wonderful. I would even say I forgot I was even at a dentist. For the first time in 40 years of my life I am looking forward to going back to the dentist. I can now truly say from the bottom of my heart “I have the most wonderful dentist on the planet”.
Thank you to Ocean Dental let me have my sunshine smile. After years of avoiding the Dentist, I decided to make an appointment with Dr. Winnie Lam which was referred by a friend I’m so glad that I went. My full mouth and front tooth really needs a good Dentist, when I arrived I was really impressed by how clean this place is also new tech equipment, that’s always a plus! Dr. Lam and her husband Dr. Yang also her staffs is very professional, friendly and caring I love their smile. Dr. Lam explained all the different options and the best choices for me. The whole time during the procedure I didn’t feel any discomfort at all. I’m Very Happy!! See soon Dr. Lam!!! My last appointment was Oct. 7 2015 when I look in the mirror, I’m so happy how I look with the new front teeth. Thank you to Ocean Dental & Dr. Lam.
My parents and I have been seeing Dr. Yang for a couple of years now and we all love him. He is very informative and detailed with his work. He takes the extra time to make sure everything looks great. I consider him to be one of the best dentists in the city. All of the other dentists that I’ve had before do not even compare.
Consistent high quality service in any of the procedures I’ve had performed by Dr. Yang assisted by his staff, which is of the highest caliber. I especially appreciate the briefing he provides before the service is performed and the summary at the conclusion. He is an excellent dentist with exceptional skills. Very impressed with the front desk also, Tracy handles that function with ease and professionalism.
When you need a dentist, this is the place to go to. I have never ever had such a thorough dental exam in my life. Dr. Yang is very informative and detailed. I was a first timer today so I took advantage of the X-ray and cleaning package.
Dr. Lam is by far the best dentist I’ve ever had. She shows genuine sincerity regarding my health and wellbeing and encourages better dental habits through positive reinforcement and not guilt trips. After not going to the dentist for many years, I’ve seen Dr. Lam for numerous cleanings, fillings, and even a root canal. During all of these procedures she has been gentle, comforting, and communicated openly in explaining the procedures and answering all my questions. Furthermore, the staff is incredibly pleasant and helpful, always trying to best accommodate my scheduling needs. Thank you Dr. Lam and Ocean Dental for making going to the dentist as enjoyable as possible!
This is definitely as good as a dentist gets. I’ve never minded going to the dentist’s office but here I even look forward to my routine cleanings with Dr. Lam. She always explains thoroughly what she does and is very friendly. She is thorough and doesn’t guilt trip you for not flossing enough (LOL) but just reminds you again the importance of it.
I had my first appointment with Dr. Lam this week. My past experiences with other dentists told me that poor dental hygiene, at worst, led to only ugly teeth and gums. However, Dr. Lam went out of her way to explain the importance of oral hygiene, and how best to go about keeping it. Anyway, one of my big problems until seeing Dr. Lam was that I was flossing incorrectly—and I just didn’t know any better at the time, even though I would floss once a day. I sincerely believe that any of my previous dentists would have immediately concluded that I was lying to them, instead of making sure that I was flossing correctly to begin with. Dr. Lam on the other hand pretty much asked all the opportune questions that led to her explaining the right way to floss–and this is the kind of troubleshooting you can expect at her office.
Excellent dental service. Dr. Lam is the best. She has been my dentist for more than a decade and she recently added my husband as her new patient. We now live in Texas but we fly in to SFO to get our dental work done by her. We’re not the easiest patients either but we feel very confident with Dr. Lam. Dental office also offers the modern technology that adds to our comfort. Thank you Dr. Lam for being such a caring doctor.
My first visit was great considering I am pretty nervous about dental appointments. Dr. Yang is very professional, gently, knowledgeable, easy going and detail oriented. He explained everything to me and did not rush through. Glad I found a great dentist:)
Dr Lam was gentle yet thorough in doing my cleanings. Although I had a cavity and eventually needed it filled she never made me feel bad about it but encouraged me to keep up my oral hygiene but focus on problem areas. Getting my cavity filled was an easy, pleasant process with Dr Lam and there was no pain at all…it was quite relaxing! If I’m getting more cavities filled its going to be with Dr Lam!!
Very thorough exam and super clear explanations about what is going on. Love that Dr. Yang is gentle and yet very efficient, and uses the latest technology. All in the same day, he even managed to fix a filling that another dentist had botched. I am impressed and glad I found this clinic.
Dr. Yang has been my dentist for 6 years now. There is no other dentist I would trust my teeth to. Dr. Yang is ethical and the utmost professional. His practice is relaxing and friendly. I have referred many of friends to him and still do.
Our switch to Ocean Dental Group was the best decision we’ve ever made! Dr. Yang and Dr. Lam are very nice and great with our toddler. They really seem to care about our dental care, which to me is incredibly important. I would recommend Ocean Dental Group to any and everyone, with a family or not. You won’t be disappointed if you’re looking for caring and knowledgeable dentists!
Never have I had a dentist I look forward to seeing! The service here mixed with the knowledgeable staff make for a most pleasant experience. I left with a smile that I didn’t know I had! I drive a decent amount to get here but would drive even FARTHER if they moved. I went here on a very high recommendation and will do the same to anyone that is looking for a new dentist!
Doctors are super qualified and patient. Staff is incredibly understanding and accommodating. Even I’m an awful patient and miss my appointment at times. They are still super nice and reschedule for me. They make multiple follow ups to ensure you got a great service . Plus super tech! I can even confirm appointments via email, phone or Best of all TEXT!!! I love ocean dental and would recommend it to anyone that wants superior quality and affordable prices!
