Get to know Dr. Hyun Bang

My mission in life is to reach the one individual who is in need, and make a difference in this world.

Growing up, I closely observed my father, a Medical Doctor of Internal Medicine, and my mother who took care of his patients together and built long lasting friendships. Their self-sacrificing genuine heart and honest work ethic taught me to be who I am today. Patients knocked on our door at 3AM with their baby with a high fever, regularly, as we lived very close to my father's clinic. I would wake up and watch my parents get up and help the crying baby and anxious parents and heal yet another life and bring joy to another few individuals' hearts. This became my mission eventually. I decided my future will be in healthcare, specifically Dentistry, right out of elementary school. 

I grew up partially in a society, South Korea, which did not always value prevention. Early detection of diseases sounded great, but most sought medical dental help when something hurt, or brushed it off if informed early. When I went through the Doctor of Dental Surgery program at Loma Linda University in Southern California, a Christian institute with the well-being of the whole person at the center of their education, I learned that I now lived in a society where prevention and early detection is valued most highly. This again reinforced my mission as a healthcare provider and a Christian individual. The standard of care in this society reflected also my faith as a Christian.

If you value your health as something you cannot put a price tag on, and believe in a preventive approach and treatment in the earlier stages to minimize damage, you are in the right place at our practice.

My education in Dentistry does not stop. 10-years later still returning to the Dental schools and Dental societies to learn. Expanding into multiple fields in Advanced Dentistry even crossing over to Medicine has allowed me to see there is a lot more that I can do for my patients than the basics.

Patient Experience

 
No more anxiety.

I wish I had dental experiences like the one I had at Dr. Bang's office as a kid. In short, Dr. Bang is the best dentist I have been to, very thorough and informative. She is professional but friendly, efficient and accurate and always goes above and beyond for her patients.

Quick and Painless!

The procedure was quick and painless and in no time I was out of the office.

I'm very glad to have found this practice and I'm looking forward to do the rest of my procedures there...”

— H.P.

Transparent, Efficient.

Fast and confidant. She replaced three fillings in one session without a wasted movement. I don't know how her assistants keep up! She even found time to take before, during, and after photos which she showed me after which was a very nice touch. Teeth and fillings looked great.
