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

Betty V. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve never met a more generous and sincere group of people in a dental office ever! All the ladies at the front desk are incredibly nice and understanding. I started coming here when I had a cracked molar from accidentally eating glass that was in my food at a restaurant! They worked with me every step of the way to make sure I was taken care of during the difficult legal process. Dr. Myung always makes sure I’m comfortable and is considerate of patient pain and constantly checks if I’m doing alright. it’s crazy how much I DONT mind going to the dentist with this bunch. They make it so easy! Even my fiancé changed his dentist to come here because our experience is always awesome. I can’t thank them enough for all their care!

The most enjoyable dental experience I’ve ever had! Very professional, high quality and top of the line technology, and great customer care! I can speak their praises enough. I felt cared for and listened to. From the receptionist to the nurses to the dental hygienists to the dentists, everyone was pleasant!

Giovanna V. from Downey, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming to this dentist for just about 16 almost 17 years. The people there have seen me grow up and they still this day provide me with the best dental care. I’ve visited other dentist offices with friends and there no place like Downey Dental. I’ve been helped by all the doctors there including the orthodontist. Dr. Myung is absolutely amazing. He is very pleasant and all around great dentist. The staff there are so nice and very professional. They have one of the best receptionists and her name is Frances. They have all helped and accommodated me in any way they can and even though I’ve had many painful things done to my mouth there, I still leave feeling mostly happy because of the great staff and doctors.

Tito C. from Downey, CA (Source: Yelp)


I decided to come to here based on the positive yelp reviews and once again my fellow yelpers didn’t let me down. Scheduling was a breeze, I was able to get an appointment with the time I wanted. The dentist was great and he gave me different options for treatment. He was very informative and helpful in answering my concerns. Overall it was a great experience and I would recommend the place.

Brenda U. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had the best service at this dental office. I had been going to a dentist in Whittier for years yet he never told me I had cavities. He just did a cleaning every time. The dentist here showed me what the other dentist missed and took care of me. I’m so greatful! I’m really scared of needles but i didn’t feel a thing when he gave me the anesthesia. This is now my new dental office.

Jessica V. from Bell Gardens, CA (Source: Yelp)


It’s crazy to say that I love it here. It’s a dental office. I had such a phobia about going to a dentist that I hadn’t been to one in around 10 years (I know, that’s gross, don’t judge me). The receptionists are great, polite and their customer service is on point. My doctor, Dr Myung is super nice and is very gentle. During my deep cleaning he did everything he could to make the procedure painless and I hardly felt anything. Kept checking on me and asked to raise my hand if I felt any pain so he can stop and add more anesthesia. I ‘ve seen the dentist more in this one year than ever and I’m actually okay with that. I like it here. My visits are short and sweet.

Rebeca M. from Downey, CA (Source: Yelp)


The dentists are friendly and make you feel comfortable. They make sure you understand the process of the treatment and get the job done right. All the staff are really welcoming and accommodating to your schedule. Frances from the billing department is really kind and helpful. I highly recommend these dentists!

Jessica W. from South Gate, CA (Source: Yelp)


Absolutely love this dentist! My daughter who’s is 6 was so at ease, not scared and very happy with her dentist. The service is always above and beyond. I am a medical professional and I set the bar high because I do my best to provide it and I can honestly say without any xx reservation they met that! The Dr.’s were patient, explained everything, encouraged questions and answered all questions.. (and that was just for my daughter). Then, there was me, I honestly was a little nervous for my daughter, she needed xrays, injections, cleaning and fillings. She did amazing with the Dr. “No tears, no looks of fear and not one worry.” That says a lot. I did take her to a previous dentist who said they specialized in children and were awful. They insisted in administering anesthesia without even assessing my child, which is why I refused to go back. The dentist here did not even bring up that option. I am so impressed with these amazing Dentists. The personal connection I immediately felt, their values, professionalism and understanding was perfect. I found my permanent Dentist office.

Michelle A. from Lynwood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Downey Dental has excellent customer service. All the staff are professional. Wait is not that long. Facility is clean and it looks sanitized everyday. I would recommend them to my family and friends. Thank you all for your service at the time like this.

I was very impressed by the professionalism I recieved from the front desk which lead to the dental assistant and the dentist Myung.i dont regularly go to the dentist because of bad experiences at other dental offices. I would highly recommend this office. I will be recommending this office to my friends and family.

Isaac S. from San Marino, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going here for a few years now. It’s great. Everyone there is friendly, kind, and caring. I see Dr. Myung and I don’t think I could be any happier. He’s a great dentist along with the rest of the staff! The front desk is also really nice and it is always extremely easy to make future appointments. Glad to be apart of such a great dental office.

Daisy C. from Downey, CA (Source: Yelp)


I do not like going to the Dentist but Downey Dental is by far my favorite.The Doctors are really nice and informative, the staff is very friendly and helpful, and they are flexible when you need to make appointments. I am very happy with all the dental work I have had done so far.  I bring my son here as well and they have done an excellent job with him. He never complains about having to go to the dentist.

I’ve been seeing Dr Myung for many years now and he’s always taken care of my concerns and special needs. The office is clean and tidy and Dr Myung is always so friendly! Both he and the staff take the time to get to know the patients and they always remember my name. I live in Long Beach now but I still make the drive the Downey because I don’t want to leave such great service.

Maria G. from Downey, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming to Downey Dental Group for many years now. I am always so pleased with the service I receive, the staff is extremely friendly and answers any questions or concerns I may have. Dr. Chris Myung is great and always makes sure my teeth are in their best shape. I highly recommend this office to anyone, I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

SE. K. from Downey, CA (Source: Yelp)


OMG, sooooo happy I found Downey Dental Group on my way to the movie theatre.  Frances, the receptionist, I love her!!! She’s been working there for 12 years.  The front staff, the manager, the dentist were so friendly and professional.  The facility is extremely clean, modern and beautiful.  I hated the dentist and hasn’t seen one in like five years because of that fear.  My daughter loved Dr. Chris.  Thanks Downey Dental Group.

Veronica S. from Downey, CA (Source: Yelp)


Very friendly staff! I didn’t dread the visits, so that’s always a sign of a great team. I especially liked that there was a tv in each exam room to keep you distracted from whatever was going on in the room next door. Honestly, the shots always freak me out but the Doctor does a great job at distracting you from that pain too. I didn’t feel the needle so that automatically put me more at ease for the rest of the visits.

Gerardo A. from Downey, CA (Source: Yelp)


I started as a patient here at Downey Dental 5 years ago and it is by far the most professional and pleasant experiences I’ve ever had a a dentist. All of the dentists and staff make everything easy and put me at ease. Other dentists in my past have concerned me about unnecessary procedures BUT not here. They are always honest and give me sound dental hygiene advice to ensure that no problems arise. I highly recommend this dentist office. Even if you have to travel a long distance. It is worth the peace of mind. I’m lucky to have this office within 5 minutes of home.

Tiffany L. from Lakewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love Dr. Myung!!! I’ve always had a fear of the dentist because of past dental horrors (quack Doctors) but once I met Dr. Myung we became BFF’s he was so patient and reassuring. He’s so professional and caters to my fears. Everyone in my family comes to him and we have no complaints. I will continue to recommend Dr. Myung.

Staff is super friendly, helpful and super kind and patient to everyone adults and children. They follow up and provide reminders which I’m super grateful for via text, phone, mail they make sure you schedule your check ups and do their best to remind you. They handle your mouth/ teeth with gentle hands seriously!!! I have not had a bad or painful experience. I would recommend especially if you have kids. My kids are not afraid to go to the dentist because they know it will not hurt and everyone is nice.

Natalie F. from Bell Gardens, CA (Source: Yelp)


We’ve been coming here for the past 4 years. I wish I would’ve known about this place back when I was a kid! Ever since my coworker recommended me this place I haven’t had not one single regret. All of the staff is great! Especially the ladies working the front desk they are beyond amazing!!!! Both my daughters have gotten their braces here and I absolutely love the results .

So not being at the dentist in 10 years. I was really nervous going in. And all the staff and the doctor for very helpful and patient and kind in anxiety. The procedure that I had was to extractions. It went really well no pain the doctor was very nice and asking if I had any pain, very diligent and very sensitive in the procedure. I thank GOD that I found a dental place as amazing as this place, and I’m saying this sincerely because it’s the truth.

Meeshy C. from Covina, CA (Source: Yelp)


Since my last review in 2015 I have had several cleanings and occasional fillings with Dr. Chung and his staff, and I can honestly say I love this Dentist! I have referred not only my family and friends but my co-workers as well, and they all agree they are no longer afraid/nervous about the dentist and they are all quite impressed with his work and his dedication to all his patients. So here are the following procedures I have been here for so hopefully they will help someone out! Wisdom Tooth Removal: 5 Stars. I was super scarred since I don’t like needles yet alone someone cutting into my gums and removing teeth. But I didn’t even feel the needle and it was done in a flash. Some swelling the week after and very minimal discomfort for about 2 days after. Fillings/ Silver Filling Replacement with porcelain: 5 Stars. I have always been self conscious about my silver fillings especially when I laugh. After finding out I had a couple teeth that needed fillings I was dreading having more unsightly silver in my mouth, but I found out that Dr. Chung uses porcelain instead of silver I was so excited! Over time I even had him replace my silver ones with porcelain and since I have literally been laughing out loud without being embrassed of anyone seeing nasty silver in my mouth. Regular Cleanings: 5 Stars. I have had not only Dr. Chung himself give me a cleaning or 2 but also a variety of different hygienist as well and of course like everyone I do have my preferred hygienist, but for the most part I have always left feeling super clean and even whiter than I came in (I have pretty white teeth to begin with) Braces (Adult Braces): 5 Stars. Although I did have braces when I was a teenager I unfortunately lost my retainer and now I have crooked teeth with a wedding 1 year away. I was so nervous having braces AGAIN this time as an adult! I am halfway through my treatment but I can already say I have seen a HUGE difference in my smile and the shape of my face. Of course I cannot wait for them to be off, but Dr. Myung and her staff have been nothing but informative, patient, and caring with me through this process. Children Cleaning: 5 Stars I have a now 4 year old daughter and have been bringing her to Dr. Chung in his Downey & Glendale office since she has had her first tooth and he and his staff have been so AMAZING with my daughter. At first was was quite nervous being there but the front office staff (Especially Nicole) were so kind and making her feel safe and comfortable, by the end of her visit she didn’t even want to leave holding onto Nicole’s hand. Overall: A MILLION STARS!!! I have never felt to safe, welcomed, and overall happy with a dental office as I have with Downey Dental, Dr. Chung, Dr. Myung, and their staff. I again HIGHLY recommend this office to anyone wanting to switch dentist/orthodontists. SIDE NOTE: I saw the last review by Ruby E. where she states Nicole “Rolled her eyes” at Dr. Chung and questioned his treatment. I’m sorry but I have had the pleasure of knowing Nicole for quite some time now and I find it quite hard to believe is is capable in doing the things that you claim, she just docent have that kind of personality.  Also if you genuinely feel like someone at your dental office has it out for you by asking why you are cancelling your appointment then you are crazy. Maybe just maybe they want to help you by rescheduling you to an earlier/later time or even date?

Jacob B. from Bryan, TX (Source: Yelp)


I am a new client here to the Downey Dental Group and I am glad to have been recommended to this establishment. The staff are all so nice and accommodating. They are really looking out for everybody’s best interests. I would really recommend the Downey Dental Group to anyone looking for a new dentist.

I LOVE DOWNEY DENTAL! The facility is clean and cozy. Staff treats you like family and accommodates to your needs. Very helpful and friendly. If you make an appointment, the wait time is short. I usually wait around 5 min before being admitted to see the dentist. Dr. Myung is an amazing dentist. He does everything to make sure your procedure is easy and painless. I can tell he genuinely cares for the wellness of his patients. I feel really comfortable when he is helping me. I used to get anxiety when seeing a dentist, now I look forward to my check ups thanks to everyone at Downey dental.

Jen F. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


So happy to finally find a dentist with professional staff where they don’t try to up sell you on things or make you wait hours in the waiting room. From the front desk staff, dental assistants and dentist, everyone is extremely pleasant! The office is super clean and modern looking. There’s only street parking but it’s never a problem (just make sure to read the signs).

Nelda S. from South Gate, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went to another dentist in Downey, CA for years, and never liked it but feared going elsewhere.   However, when I retired my insurance changed and I had to find a new dentist.  I ended up randomly choosing Downey Dental Group on 3rd and Myrtle in Downey, CA.   Best choice I ever made.  The staff is amazing, caring, and friendly.  I’m so happy with them.  Such a rewarding ‘random’ choice I made.

Carlos S. from Downey, CA (Source: Yelp)


Downey dental is the best dental office I have ever been too. Dr myung and Dr Chung are professional at there work and profectionist at there treatments and cosmetic work is amazing. The staff is great and very polite they  make you feel like being at the dentist. The office is very clean and state of the art equipment. I would gladly recommend Downey dental.

S. S. from Fullerton, CA (Source: Yelp)


My kids and I have been going to Dr. Chris and Dr. Daniel for 12 years now.  My kids refuse to go anywhere else and I live in orange county.  They are very gentle with their hands and can’t feel the injection at all.  I am the biggest chicken of all but they sure help me to relax.  Especially the front staff, they are amazing.  The staff has not changed in 12 years that i have been attending there.  You know what that means, if the staff stays for that long, they must be pretty good.

Daisy M. from Downey, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best dentist I’ve been to & I don’t plan on changing. I recommend this 100% for kids and adults. They’re very gentle and explain everything through out the whole procedure so it is not scary at all! Super happy! I have clean and healthy teeth thanks to Downey Dental Group. Plus it’s also very modern inside and clean so a big thumbs up to that! And the receptionist are amazing! Super nice!!!.

What an Awsome group from the front desk to the awsome crew in the back. I flew in from Virgina with a broken tooth and just stopped by this dental group to see if they could assist. The not only assisted with my issue but stayed late in order to do it. Follow up was great Dr. was very concerned that I heal correctly and saw me 2 more times after the initial visit. Once again THANK YOU STAFF.

Scully A. from South Gate, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m usually like a 5 year old when it comes to the dentist. I hate the dentist. I try to avoid my visits at all costs. I, or I should say my teeth, have paid for it dearly. Anyhow, my boyfriend and I stumbled upon this place while driving around doing errands. We checked them out online and were very impressed with what we read. When we went in the office we were both very pleased to see how clean and modern the place was. The staff were great and very patient with all our questions. The dentists are amazing! I had to have a root canal done (again, due to my lack of visits) not too long ago. The dentist who assisted me kept asking if I was ok. If I felt any pain. If I was nervous. It was very comforting. There was a point I did feel some pain and the dentist numbed me up again to make sure I didn’t feel anything at all. They have totally helped with my fear as far as my dental visits go. Looks like there’s hope for me and my teeth just yet!.

Randy T. from Downey, CA (Source: Yelp)


Wow, is this place great! Never have I felt more comfortable and welcome. I needed a new dentist office since mine went out of business. I read all the Yelp reviews and since they were all positive, I decided to take a chance. Boy am l happy that I did. The staff is very friendly and professional. They fully explained every step in detail and welcomed any questions that I had. I think I have found a permanent home for all my dental needs. If you are looking for a dentist office, please trust me on this one. This place is awesome!

Crys F. from Downey, CA (Source: Yelp)


Been coming here for years and I always get treated with the best customer service, they’re always very nice and helpful. It’s always super clean and a friendly environment. Nicole, Frances and the rest of the girls are the best!!! They’re always super helpful always answering any questions I have about my next visits  thank you ladies for your outstanding continued customer service.

Sheron Morgan (Source: Google)


Sure friendly and welcoming staff. Francis, Fred, Joanna, Edith even the new ladies are very nice. Even when I forget my apt. they are so great at reminders and updates. Doctor Chris takes the time to explain to me when he is going and makes sure I am comfortable. Fred that’s my boy! He’s always my best ending after a long visit. Honestly, I’m glad I don’t feel pain or rushed. Great Team and I will recommend to family and friends! Thank you Downey Dental.
