PATIENT REVIEWS

Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Suzie B. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I was extremely hesitant about going to the dentist as I have had nothing but bad experiences in the past. It was at the point however where I absolutely needed to see a dentist and so I did a lot of research. From all the reviews I read about Pasadena dentists, Dr. Anna seemed to receive the most praise. That praise could not be more well deserved. Dr. Anna and every single member of her staff go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. I wanted to make sure I had the opportunity to express my concerns about going to the dentist and the hygienist stopped everything she was doing to listen to what I had to say. I was truly impressed. You never feel uncomfortable and the atmosphere is always friendly and upbeat. Even after getting a route canal, I still never felt much discomfort or pain! Dr. Anna is definitely the best dentist in Pasadena. I can’t recommend this place enough

It is a pleasure to receive treatment at Dr. Choe’s office.  Dr. Choe is pleasant, personable, professional, patient, proficient, and precise!  I think she just might be a perfectionist!  🙂  I learned about her from an article in a local Pasadena paper about two years ago and liked what I read about her credentials and experience and decided to make an appointment (an excellent decision on my part!).  I am very happy with her approach and guidance (full disclosure, no pressure, and no unnecessary procedures).   I am very pleased with her work which has included teeth cleaning, teeth bonding, and crown replacement.  I had a crown which hadn’t been done well by another dentist (it just didn’t seem to fit right  and had a gap allowing food participles to seep underneath) and decided to have Dr. Choe replace it and she did an excellent job (it finally felt like a real tooth and was sealed tight).  She seems very dedicated to doing the best – love that!  Her staff is wonderful too – so friendly and accommodating.  I give Dr. Choe my highest recommendation.

After going to the same dentist for 20+ years I decided to look for a new dentist. Found this dentist/office and there is no going anywhere else for me. Dr. Choe and her staff are simply amazing. She is great at what she does. I got a bridge done by her (old dentist said to just pull teeth) and it is going on 3 years and it’s still perfect. Her staff is very helpful and knowledgeable as well. I changed insurances and had questions and concerns that they were able to help me with…

★★★★★

The staff are friendly, efficient and smart. What I really like about this place is that they never over-book so the wait time is only a few minutes for your appointments. They have a patient-centric attitude instead of greedily trying to make as much cash as humanly possibly. My deep teeth cleaning with Vilma was really good – she did a thorough job. I have recommended this spot for many of coworkers and others. One of the better dental offices in the area. HOWEVER, they do inject you with a needle to numb your mouth for deep teeth cleanings unless you ask them not to. They did it really suddenly and I’m very afraid of needles. The only thing I would say, is that they should ask if a patient is ok with needles and give them a heads up that they’re about to do it. But for the next cleaning, they remembered that I hate needles and didn’t inject me.

I had a great experience at Dr. Choe’s office. I had never been to her office, but she took me in for a tooth emergency the same day. Following that visit, I got a teeth cleaning. The dental hygenist was very gentle when cleaning my teeth, and although my gum was very swollen and painful, the cleaning did not hurt at all. My tooth feels a lot better after the cleaning and I am able to make it through until I get my tooth fixed. I also liked how transparent the office staff was about what my payment after insurance would be and how they would recommend I get my treatment done to maximize the usage of my insurance.

This review is for a cleaning I had in December. First of all, I have been with this dental office for the last 5 years. Love the office staff, Dr. Anna Choe is great, and on this visit, I met with Dr. Judy Chang for a quick check up. She is equally knowledgeable, no nonsense kind of doctor, and very approachable. Back to the cleaning. Robert was my dental hygienist. I am used to routine cleanings, but may I say this one was the most comprehensive and thorough cleaning I have ever had. At first I thought it too aggressive, but let me tell you, it was worth it. Wow. My teeth were incredibly clean! I had coffee and red wine stains, and Robert managed to remove most of the stains. He is very passionate about his profession and takes pride in his work and is very skillful. Thank you, Robert!

One of the best dentist I have ever been to and I have been to multiple in the many years I have lived with a full set of teeth. My teeth are bright and my pockets are still full. I came here when I use to pay out of pocket for my dentist and Anna has been very fair and accommodating and honest. Even the hygienist that works for here gave was very informative. Even when I have full coverage now, I do not feel like I was being gouge out of all my insurance money. Although, my fiancé has had some troubles with the receptionist having odd calculations but otherwise in the end they fixed the issues on the next visit. The pros, clean friendly environment and all the hygienist that has “serviced” my teeth has been thorough and informative. In addition, they will tell you like how it is, “floss more!” Also, they do have Saturday appointments. The cons, it’s the dentist, this place will cost money if you want that smile. Other than that, the only con I could think of at the moment, is that lunch time for the entire office is 12pm to 1pm, so you cannot really get an appointment during that time if you only can do lunch time.

First time here and came in based on the reviews, plus she’s on my provider’s network of preferred dentists. Given, i’m not fond of any dentists’ office andddddd I still gave her 5 stars lol. STAFF: They are all extremely nice. I was greeted by Monica with a smile and very thorough at explaining everything before being seen. Jocelyn, was super nice. I guess she noticed I was a bit nervous and just started making small talk with me. Within the next few minutes I was relaxed and talking about life and weekend plans. She was amazing and definitely made me feel I was in good hands. Dr Choe, what a nice lady! She was just very warm, inviting and honest. Not to mention she is very very veryyyyyy detailed in her work. She found a small stain on my front tooth that had been bugging me forever and no other dentist ever mentioned it. She advised she could try a filling, but then she suggested we wait and see how it went after she thoroughly cleaned it. She didn’t try to sell me anything crazy of give me procedures I didn’t need. I will definitely be coming back… and if you haven’t had your semi-annual check up, give her a try. I promise you will not be disappointed.

A coworker introduced me to Dr. Choe and I could not be more grateful. Dr. Choe and her great team are very professional, welcoming and friendly. They perform great work and are honest about what problems I have with my teeth and fully explain my options. I’ve never had any issues with them being too pushy like I have with other dentists. I used to dread coming to the dentist but now feel rest assured that my teeth needs are in good hands.

Fantastic dentist office! I recently came for an initial establishing office visit, and I was extremely impressed.  The office is comfortable, clean, sterile. The staff are professional and friendly and did a great job understanding and filing my insurance in advance.  When I arrived, I knew how much I would owe and it was a good feeling.  Dr. Choe is professional, and I felt at ease during the exam and all that she explained afterwards.  Also, the cleaning I had was thorough and just such a nice experience overall for the visit.  After going to other dentists and being overcharged, up sold on procedures I know I didn’t need, and overall not feeling like they had my best interest at heart – I am SO SO happy I found Dr. Choe. Highly Recommend!!

I had just moved to Pasadena from the Midwest and I had an infected tooth that was EXTREMELY painful.  I was referred to Dr. Choe by a coworker and even though I was not an established patient she got me in in 2 days.  After evaluating me she set me up with a prostodontist (Dr. Eugene Kim) who comes to their office once a month since his clinic is about 75 min. away which makes it much easier for the patient.  They made a plan together and I was able to see him the very next day.  Both Dr. Choe and Dr. Kim were professional and told me exactly what needed to be done and why and how.  I also made another appt. a few months later as I had lost a crown.  I called Dr. Choe on a Sunday and she called me right back and asked what happened and was I in any pain.  I told her my crown fell out but I was not in any pain.  She told me to call the office the next day and make an appt.  I called the next day and I work full time so they made an appt for me that week that worked around my schedule.  I was ran 30 min. late because of horrendous traffic.  My appt. was at 1630 on a Friday and I did not arrive until 1700.  I did call the office and let them know and Dr. Choe was EXTREMELY kind and wonderful and waited for me even though I was a half hour late and it was Friday evening.  Her office staff is also very nice and accommodating.  I hope to keep her as my dentist for as long as I am in Pasadena.  She also speaks perfect English so there was no language barrier.  I highly recommend her to anyone.  She is so kind, gentle and caring.  The office is very nice and has all updated dental equipment.

Wow, what can I say?  I had a great experience with Dr. Choe.  Her front office staff are super helpful and friendly.  First time you go, you get a cute welcome mug with a toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss.  Everything is digital, and you are able to see the pictures of your teeth while Dr. Choe explains what she finds.  I also have never had the dentist do the actual cleaning, which she did.  The hygienist helped during the cleaning, and then did the polishing.  Dr. Choe also did a very thorough examination of each tooth, and recorded the findings.  I told her certain things previous dentists had told me, including needing a gum transplant (?!), and she told me that was ridiculous and there was nothing wrong with my gums.  She did not try to upsell any services or products, but just informed me of some options and told me I could let he know if I wanted anything else done.  I highly recommend coming here for your dental needs.

I had my first visit to Dr Anna Choe’s office this morning. From the moment I opened the door to her office I was treated very well starting off with the the front desk staff. Next a dental hygenist, Kim, greeted me and asked me to follow her to a room with a beautiful window looking outside. Kim explained every procedure she would be doing with me.  She answered all my questions and was very gentle in my mouth with examining and cleaning. I have never felt this comfortable in an initial visit to a dental office. I met Dr Choe shortly after my cleaning. She was warm,knowledgeable and made me feel assured and comfortable in her examination and plan of action for my dental health. I actually look forward to my next visit to this office and want to give them 5 stars plus for their exceptional treatment of a first time patient.

M. from Diamond Bar, CA (Source: Yelp)

It’s no secret why most people hate going to the dentist: oh, you might think you’re going in for just a cleaning, but an hour and a half later you awake to blinding facial pain, groggily remember agreeing to a procedure needed to “save your jaw from disintegrating,” can’t locate your watch and wonder why your underwear are on backwards.  Just when the trauma subsides (two weeks later), you get a bill for $4k and an appointment reminder that it’s time for your next cleaning. But after not seeing a dentist for several years, the fear that my jaw just might disintegrate became greater than the all of the past memories stored in the dental-specific region of my amygdala, and I made an appointment. And as you probably surmised from the 5 stars above, my experience with Dr. Choe was not at all unpleasant, traumatic or regretful!  If I could give her six (or seven or eight) stars I would.  She is a perfect dentist: intelligent, efficient, thorough, honest, trustworthy and a genuinely warm human being. Her assistant and the receptionist were also a pleasure to meet, the office was new and modern, there was parking right outside (ok, for a motorcycle) and I walked out with as many tooth-care products I could stuff into my jacket.  For the first time ever, I walked out owing $0 AND received an itemized quote for what my after-insurance costs would be for the work she’ll be doing next visit.  No more waiting for that dreaded mystery medical bill that arrives weeks later for 3x the amount you expected! You simply will not find a better dentist anywhere.  (And if happen to have perfect teeth I recommend sleeping with jolly ranchers in your mouth from now on just so you can have the honor of being one of Dr. Choe’s patients.)

Very pleased with Dr. Choe. I’ve seen her twice – once for an emergency, and then again for a cleaning/checkup. She’s very clear and thorough; the office is clean and modern. I liked especially that she really seems to be there for the dental health of the patient, and not – as is the case with so many other dentists these days – simple to see the teeth as a profit center. I had a couple of minor problems, and each time, she recommended the most minimal and cost-free means of solving them. Validated parking is nice, too. Thanks, Dr. Choe – see you for my next cleaning!

Karyn H. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)

Dr. Choe graciously fixed a crown that “popped” out of our out of state friend’s mouth when he was at a business dinner – Yike!  He asked us for a recommendation of a good dentist that may fix it and we recommended he call Dr. Choe.  He called her and she answered even though it was after hours!  She fit him in first thing the next morning, fixed the crown and he was able to complete his business trip without the worry of the broken crown.  He loved the office staff too.  Thank you Dr. Choe and staff for your above and beyond professionalism and care!

Wow.  I went for an initial visit after finding Dr. Choe on Yelp.  It’s great to find a 5-Star doctor and receiving a 5 star experience. A little bittersweet – I left my dentist for over 20 years because the commute to the Westside had become too painful.  Right from my arrival, the office team was warm and welcoming.  The receptionist had a “new patient” gift and gathered all my information —   the office is paperless and has a nicely contemporary feel.  But the real test is the dentist, and Dr. Choe was wonderful.   She was intelligent and kind, gathering my information and sharing lots of helpful information.  The exam and cleaning was careful and painless:  she is truly a gentile dentist.  And with her up-to-date equipment, she was able to show me the x-rays and discuss my individual needs.   Dr. Choe and her staff inspired confidence, and in my opinion, an excellent choice if you’re looking for a dentist.  I wish I’d found her sooner.

The doctors at Belle Smile are the best. They explain everything and provide reasonable options and solutions that others do not. Personally I find them to be extremely skilled and true perfectionist. Not only are they extremely skilled, but they are also kind and caring.  They always tell you in advance what they are about to do and you can tell that they are very passionate about their work. The entire team is great and the atmosphere within the office makes you feel totally relaxed.

My husband and I were new to the area and looking for a new dentist.  I called the L.A. dental society and they gave me a couple of names, one of which was Dr. Choe.  We were very pleased with Dr. Choe and plan to continue going to her office.  Everything that the other reviewers said is true.  Dr. Choe is professional and knowledgeable and is also very kind and caring.  She doesn’t recommend things that aren’t necessary and the charges are reasonable.  Dr. Choe even adjusted my night guard that I got from another office at no charge.  Her staff is also very courteous and helpful.  The office is clean, modern and they use the latest technology and equipment.  The office validates parking which not all of the doctor offices do at this medical office location (kind of annoying).  Dr. Choe and her staff exceeded our expectations.  We are very pleased to have found her.

I

saw another dentist because I had some tooth pain, which turned out to be an abscess. He did a root canal for $2200 and wanted to do another $10,000 worth of work, including removing another tooth next to the one that needed the root canal (then I would have needed an implant or a bridge); lasers; I don’t know what all. All had to be done pretty much at once too, within 3-4 months. I couldn’t afford it, so I went to Dr. Choe for a second opinion. Her opinion was that that tooth didn’t need to come out, and I didn’t need all that other stuff. Deep cleaning, yes; a couple small fillings, yes, and some counselling on oral hygiene. Total cost around $1300. So I saved $9000 if you want to look at it that way. I guess that her prices are reasonable or standard; his were kind of high, but the main
difference was he wanted to do everything he could think of, and she just wants to do what I need. Dr. Choe is very experienced; she worked somewhere else for 20 years, and is opening her own practice now that her kids are grown. I’ve found her to be very competent, very pleasant, honest, and genuinely concerned. After the deep cleaning, she called me up the next day to make sure I hadn’t had any problems with the anesthesia. I don’t recall any dentist ever doing that before. I’ll keep going to her, and I recommend her without reservation.

I love this office! I have some dentist anxiety after having an accident ages ago and subsequent dental treatment for a year for jaw damage, plus it is still hard to keep my mouth open for long. (Thanks TMJ). A friend referred me here a few years ago and I have not looked back! The office is very warm and bright, clean looking. I have never waited beyond appointment time, they’re very punctual! The hygienists I’ve had have all been so warm and engaging, really pleasant! The office staff is nice and helpful. And Dr. Choe is great!! If you have pain, they’ll squeeze you in ASAP, same day sometimes! Dr. Choe herself takes time to assess your pain, connect with you, etc. She does not push any cosmetic dentistry on you, despite that being her specialty, but if you ask, she is great about knowing the options and finding out what your insurance covers! One time I needed a somewhat painful treatment and I was shocked when Dr. Choe herself called me the next day to check on me! She is so warm and thoughtful. They also see children, she sent home gift mugs for my kids with toothbrushes, despite the fact they have their own dentist, lol. I can not recommend this office enough! Parking in found on the street if you don’t mind walking a little. It is also in the underground structure on Allesandro. It is not free, but it is cheap. (They no longer validate). If you’ve been looking for someone great who takes time with you and values you as a person and a patient, this is the place.

Dr. Anna Choe is AMAZING!!!!!! I saw her as a new patient last week to have my teeth cleaned and a composite filling redone from my previous dentist who messed up the color. She was so nice and answered all of my questions during the cleaning and then scheduled me to come in the following week for the composite filling work. I was literally in and out in less than 20 minutes for the cosmetic work today and it looks flawless. I really appreciated that she never pressured me into trying to do work that she didn’t feel was necessary – my previous dentist was all about the $$ so he would always recommend I do more. She is very honest and truly assesses based on what she thinks will be best for you. Her staff is friendly and it’s so easy to book an appointment online. I highly highly recommend her and her office! I’ve already recommended her to my dad and another friend – she has just made a loyal lifetime patient!

I have been coming to got this dentist for almost two years and I have to say I love it. I have waited to write my review, as I wanted to ensure I had enough office visits before making up my mind. Over the last two years I have had such positive experiences during each visit. I am not a fan of going to he dentist, and each visit Dr Choe has always put my mind at ease. All the dental staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The girls on the reception always remind me to validate my parking, and the dental hygienists are very thorough and do an amazing job. I normally have Cindy working on my teeth and she is fantastic. She chats away, which is a great distraction, and always gives good advice on how to improve my oral hygiene. I am a converted full time flosser now. My teeth are definitely whiter since visiting this office. Tip: Parking is validated. Enter in Alessandro Blvd to access the underground parking structure. Check in on Yelp for a new client offer (I forgot to do this my first visit). New clients get a cute coffee cup with toothbrush, floss and toothpaste. Each return visit you get a new set of swag, minus the coffee cup.

I have been looking for a great dentist for about 6 years now. Inevitably either overselling, poor advice or poor customer services would make me look for another dentist. Dr. Choe’s office has finally changed all this. The office is warm and inviting. The staff laugh, joke and seem to be enjoying themselves more or less so. It feels like a good normal place to be and not a stiff, superficial dental office. Generally people laughing and being themselves is a great sign. Dr. Choe herself is calm, warm, knowledgeable and does NOT oversell. She did the first cleaning herself and was fantastic – no pain from jabbing the gums as I’ve experienced in the past. She also took time to talk through all the issues with my teeth – and was conservative in recommending treatment (distinguishing what’s urgent and what is not). She caught a chipped filling that has been causing issues that I didn’t know about and fixed it in 20 minutes. Most importantly (to me) I feel that I can ask questions here and get answers. I like to know what’s being done. Dr. Choe is very natural as a care giver, and seems to appreciate that doctors are there to help folks make informed decisions and to understand their  alternatives, rather than selling unnecessary procedures. Very glad I found this office! Thank you.

I love Dr. Choe! She is the best dentist that I have ever used. I have been going to Dr. Choe since she first opened her practice here. I was working in a nearby medical building when she offered discounts to get her name out there. I was initially skeptical, but I was glad I went. She is honest and very fair on her pricing, two characteristics that don’t apply to any other dentist that I have been to. She has rebuked other dentists very expensive operations, saying that they were unnecessary. To her, it was better to wait until there was a problem, because, with good dental hygiene, there may never be one. Dr. Choe is also very nice and understanding, which is nice for people like me who are nervous at dentist’s offices. I am no longer nervous when I go to her office! Her office is open, and bright, with a decent view.

Today I had my first visit to Dr. Choe, and it was a wonderful experience.  Cindy, the hygienist, did an excellent and thorough job cleaning up my teeth with very little pain.  She was very friendly and kept me at ease through the whole process.  Dr. Choe came in at the end and was very personable and professional throughout.  Even the receptionists in front were friendly, and I had virtually no wait (5 minutes).  Cannot say how pleased I was to find this place.  And they accept Delta Dental PPO, which is great!

Like most, I’m petrified of seeing a dentist. However, I had no choice because I knew something was up! I first met Cindy (Hygienist) and she was spectacular! Completely put me at ease an walked me through the cleaning process. She consistently asked if I was okay which I truly appreciated. After my cleaning Dr. Choe examined and reviewed my X-rays with me. I had multiple cavities and one in particular that needed immediate attention because it was close to the root. I decided to move forward with the filling after my cleaning. To my surprise, the entire filling was PAIN FREE!! I found my place

I’ve had my fair share of dentist experiences from an early age. The most horrific experience stemming from my years using the USC dental school students for tooth care (didn’t have much money for this stuff in high school). But hey, root canal for $100…can’t beat that until they drill too far and cause an infection in the gums. Anyway, fast forward to the present and moving to a new location. I get my teeth cleaned every year and I’m pretty diligent about my teeth since I’ve spent so much money on my pearly whites already. Had to find a new dentist and after a quick review of yelp and my insurance coverage, I stumbled upon Dr Choe. The reception is nice and hassle free. Got placed in my dentist chair and was expecting a dental hygienist to do all the work for my tooth checkup and cleaning but was surprised that Dr. Choe handled all the cleaning herself. She’s very nice and personable and does a thorough job. The facility is very new and they take advantage of all the newest technologies and equipment. When I asked about the cost of getting one of my old amalgam fillings swapped out with a composite, they quoted me an upfront cost after insurance coverage on the spot with a printed breakdown. Overall, I’m very satisfied with the facilities, the service and their upfront quoting of procedures. It takes me like a month to get a quote from my dermatologist…when I get the bill in the mail! 5 stars!

I had a horrible toothache. I mentioned it to my dentist (who is actually a replacement for my dentist because my ACTUAL dentist is in Washington DC advancing his education for his practice), and the replacement dentist said it was just some recession and I needed to use SENSODYNE. After two days of sensodyne, it senso SUCKED. Lol. I was at work on a Friday night (I’m a nurse) in pain, finding myself walking to the CVS during my break to buy orajel for the tooth that was causing me pain. The next morning was a Saturday morning which most dentists offices are not open. Mine definitely was not. And my dentist isn’t going to be back for 2 years anyway. so TIME TO FIND A NEW DENTIST! AND THANK GOD I DID!! I found Dr CHOE on yelp. Her staff took me in and were very pleasant. They explained what they were doing. After looking at my tooth, and noticing that the gum around the tooth was irritated, it was explained to me that it wasn’t just recession. I may need a root canal. Dr Choe fixed my bite which actually has helped significantly, prescribed me 5 days of antibiotics, and scheduled a follow up appointment to figure out whether or not the pain and irritation of the gum has subsided. ,Dr CHOE is amazing. And her staff didn’t try to upsell me anything like other dentists office have tried. Plus, I received a free cup with toothpaste and toothbrush! WOOT WOOT! She will definitely be keeping me as a patient =) Thank you for everything Dr Choe!

I went to see Dr. Choe based on a referral from one of my good friends. The staff there are great and really work to make you comfortable. I’ve had extensive dental work over the years from great dentists and not so good dentists. Dr. Choe is knowledgeable, warm, and highly skilled. Dental work, particularly drilling, is often painful for me as some dentists don’t always wait for the numbing to fully kick in before they start the work. Not only did Dr. Choe wait patiently but she even suggested we do one tooth at a time. This really worked out well for me because my old dentist would have done it all in one day. Yes it means 2 visits but my comfort level was high; it was a breath of fresh air. Thank you Dr. Choe! Think I have found “the” dentist for me.

I found Dr. Choe about a year ago and it is such a relief to find a dentist that I can trust.  Immediately after I walked in to Dr. Choe’s office on my first appointment I was greeted with a gift and a smile.  I waited about 5 minutes before I was called back for X-rays and pictures of my teeth.  The cleaning came next and I was expecting a hygienist but it was Dr. Choe that cleaned them, did the exam, and showed me the pictures.  My fiancée was getting the run around with another dentist and even though Dr. Choe didn’t take her insurance she offered to do a free consultation.   I’ve never had a dentist that I don’t dread going to or one that doesn’t nickel and dime you.  If you’re searching for a dentist you don’t need to look any further than Dr. Choe and her staff.  You won’t be disappointed.

Found a great coupon for first visit ($69) which includes cleaning, x-rays, and exam. I was wary and thought that they would try to get more money out of me somehow but they didn’t. They did a great job and honored the coupon. Very nice new office with state-of-the-art equipment. And the woman who cleaned my teeth was named Merlin! How awesome is that?! I came back and did teeth whitening and would not recommended this. It hurt like hell and my teeth aren’t really that much whiter. If you refer 3 people to her you get an awesome ($100+) electric toothbrush and your friends get the new patient deal too. One more to go before my brand new toothbrush!!!

It is a pleasure to receive treatment at Dr. Choe’s office.  Dr. Choe is pleasant, personable, professional, patient, proficient, and precise!  I think she just might be a perfectionist!  🙂  I learned about her from an article in a local Pasadena paper about two years ago and liked what I read about her credentials and experience and decided to make an appointment (an excellent decision on my part!).  I am very happy with her approach and guidance (full disclosure, no pressure, and no unnecessary procedures).   I am very pleased with her work which has included teeth cleaning, teeth bonding, and crown replacement.  I had a crown which hadn’t been done well by another dentist (it just didn’t seem to fit right  and had a gap allowing food participles to seep underneath) and decided to have Dr. Choe replace it and she did an excellent job (it finally felt like a real tooth and was sealed tight).  She seems very dedicated to doing the best – love that!  Her staff is wonderful too – so friendly and accommodating.  I give Dr. Choe my highest recommendation.
