Meet Hunt Valley, MD DentistYoochan Hong, DDS, MBS

I believe a person’s smile always leaves the most significant impression on other people. As a dentist, my hope for my patients is to be able to walk out of the office with the most healthy and confident smile!  To achieve that goal I want to treat patients while following my dental philosophy which is to prioritize people’s health and comfort for patient centered care. 

I am currently certified in Advanced General Dentistry, from the University of Maryland. My advanced training provided me the additional experience to provide top-notch dentistry in a multitude of areas including, cosmetic, digital, and laser dentistry. In addition, I have also been trained to provide multiple complex procedures such as full mouth rehabilitation.  

From an early age I learned the importance of receiving and giving education because I was a son of a high school teacher. During my time with patients, I noticed a significant amount that were actually unaware of how to take care of their teeth properly.  Even with something as basic as how to brush correctly. While my goal is to provide the best treatment possible, I also believe in guiding and educating my patients so they are able to maintain good oral health. 

I have always been taught that great work comes from those who love what they do.  My passion for my work comes from the ability to have a positive impact on others. My patient’s health and comfortability are my first priority. I am here to listen and answer any questions as we work together to achieve the best care for each individual.

I look forward to meeting you at your next visit to VDH!
