I visited the office for my six year old daughter and we had a pleasant experience. Dr. Ken Hea is super professional, very kind and patient. He was so friendly with my kid that she was able to cooperate completely for the dental test. He explained everything in details. Even we discussed about general topics too. I would highly recommended this clinic.
