About Dr. BAE

Most people don’t think about dentistry as an art, but for me, it is as much art as science. About half of my practice is general dentistry, but the other half is made up of more extreme dental cases.

I consider myself an architect of healthy smiles. I can develop the vision and bring together the team of specialists needed to meet my patients' needs. Whether dealing with routine dental care and prevention or complex reconstruction cases, my goal is to create healthy, confident smiles for my patients.

I’m meticulous about my work and I want my patients to be wholly satisfied with the results. I believe that it's all about the details. At Enhance Dental, we are all about going the extra mile and overlooking no detail for patients. From the environment we create in the office to the skills I bring to my profession and patients, we strive for the highest quality in care.

I work with my team to know our patients well. To prepare for every need of our patients, our staff meets every morning to discuss the history, concerns, and patient flow for that day. Whether making people comfortable with complementary refreshments and reflexology or being able to communicate in their native language (we speak English, Spanish and Korean), our entire office is designed to put patients at ease.

I believe that a well-educated patient is an empowered patient. I spend a lot of time educating my patients about how to achieve and maintain optimal oral health. Whether reviewing the basics of good hygiene, the best diet or important health screenings to consider, I want my patients to view our relationship as an equal partnership.

Nothing looks more beautiful than the confidence that comes from my patients once they have achieved a healthy smile.
