About Dr. YOUNG
Dr. Matthew Young is an open and friendly cosmetic, implant, and general dentist. He has been happily serving patients in the San Francisco area for the past eight years with fifteen years of private practice experience and expertise.
Dr. Young is passionate about providing the highest-quality, most personalized care possible. His patients rave about his talent, knowledge, and gentle hands, as well as the fact that he takes the time to explain every step before and during procedures to make sure patients feel comfortable.
He loves seeing patients at Young Dental SF for general dental work so he can welcome new residents, hear their stories, and get to know them over a series of years. He loves learning about people’s career and life changes and watching families develop as his own does. Dr. Young is also well known for skilled implant placement and cosmetic work.
Both of Dr. Young’s parents are teachers. They instilled in him the value of education as one of the best ways to help others and improve a community. Guided by his passion for giving back, he serves as a leader to many dental societies, endeavoring to make it easier for dentists to practice effective medicine.
Outside of the office, Dr. Young volunteers in San Francisco with Project Homeless Connect, where he gives people looking to get back in the workforce new smiles and renewed confidence. Abroad, he works with Operation Smile and teams up with other healthcare providers to turn children's lives around.
One of the greatest things about dentistry is getting to know your patients over a span of years. They become your family, their careers develop, you see them grow up, they watch you age... it’s pretty amazing.
Outside of work, Dr. Young spends most of his time with his wife, Sokie, and their two incredible children, Joseph and Lily. Together, they love going to the beach and building sandcastles, enjoying all the local parks of San Francisco and the Bay Area, rooting for the Giants, and watching Joseph’s baseball games.
