The Team at
Young Dental SF

Dr. Young and Dr. Van met in 2006 while on an Operation Smile volunteer mission in Vietnam. The two remained close, and now at Young Dental SF they continue to learn from each other. Both doctors and the entire Young Dental SF team genuinely care for the overall comfort and well-being of their patients, and the team understands that busy days and hectic schedules can make getting to the dentist hard. That’s why the office remains open for extended evening and Saturday hours, and most procedures can be done in-house to avoid visiting multiple offices and providers.
