About Us

Misson / Philosophy

Our care philosophy is based on personalized care for each patient. We believe that patients deserves one-on-one care focused on their whole body health. Our waiting room is never packed because we schedule enough time for each patient to receive undivided attention.

We believe that every patient is unique and deserves personalized care. Sleep and breathing affects all of the body systems so it is crucial to understand the whole patient. We aim to develop lasting relationships and know each of our patients personally. Sleep affects every part of the body. It boosts the immune system, increases energy levels, raises productivity and has a positive effect on mood. Everything in life is affected by the quality of sleep.

At our office, you will be working with caring and honest professionals. We live and work at a high standard of quality and with integrity. We always have your best interests in mind when we make recommendations and will honestly seek what is best for you.

Dr. Joan Yoo

Dr. Joan Yoo was born in Dallas Texas but her family moved around a lot as a child, including South Carolina, South Korea, and Colorado. Dr. Yoo attended The Ohio State University for her undergraduate education, then received early admission into The Ohio State University College of Dentistry, graduating as one of the youngest in the Class of 2009. After graduating dental school, Dr. Yoo was part of a pilot program for an expedited post-doc training, working alongside a former OSU GPR director of 20+ years. The program was an excellent opportunity since the training offered 1-on-1 mentorship, took half the time of a conventional residency and offered double the compensation. The scope of her training included managing Trauma/Infection/Emergency cases, extensive Oral Surgery (full mouth extractions with alveoplasty), and Endodontic cases (root canals).

As a more “seasoned” dentist with more than a decade of experience in Private Practice, Dr. Yoo now focuses more on restorative treatment with an emphasis on Minimally Invasive Dentistry. She has extensive experience in Cosmetic cases, CAD/CAM technology, Full mouth reconstructive cases, Clear aligner therapy, Implant placements and restorations, etc. Dr. Yoo understands the power of Continuing Education and devotes much of her time to being a lifelong “learner”. Dr. Yoo is also known for her meticulous, fastidious attention to detail with an “artist’s eye” and is a firm believer in the golden rule of “Do to others what you would have them do to you” and treats her patients as if they were her family.

When she’s not practicing dentistry, Dr. Yoo enjoys spending time with her husband and three young children and serving at her church.
