I have not been to the dentist in many years, cuz I have high anxiety. Finally I work up the courage to go see a dentist cuz my teeth were looking pretty wonky. When I finally sit down with my general dentist(Dr. Yang), I felt at ease right the way, she was extremely gentle to me and very informative regards to my issues. I definitely will be going back regularly for my appointments. All the staff are pretty amazing and very friendly. And the price is quite affordable, especially kind for those who don’t have any dental insurances. Highly recommended!!!

This was probably the best dentist I’ve ever been to. I hadn’t been to a dentist prior to covid due to wanting to be fully vaccinated for safety. The place I went prior wasn’t get. But the smile institute was phenomenal. Everyone is so professional. Both the dentist and dental assistance. I didn’t feel awkward or nervous at any point. My dentist, I unfortunately cannot recall her name, but she was so professional and sweet stepping me through everything between my cleaning and the process with my wisdom teeth removal. I highly recommend this place, especially for anyone who is scared or nervous of dentists.

I was very impressed with my first visit to the smile institute. The front desk is very pleasant and tried hard to accommodate my busy schedule. When I came in, I was offered tea or coffee! The office is very clean and organized and the doctors took their time explaining everything and I had a very painless and comfortable experience. Will definitely recommend this office to friends and family.

I saw Dr.Yang today. She is just lovely. I have never had a dentist clean my teeth before, it was a nice surprise. She very clearly explained what should be done with a kind manner. The dental assistants had personalities that put me at ease. Oh the office is very cheerfully decorated with pops of color. Little things like that matter to me. Overall, a great experience.

Dr. Yang scheduled me in for an emergency appointment on a Saturday. It was my first visit. She patched me up and scheduled me for a root canal on a quick turnaround. Had no pain in the interim. Dr. Livshin performed the root canal, which was painless and without complication. The staff is fun and upbeat. They keep you smiling and make you feel like a part of the family. It’s always nice to see that the folks who work in a certain place genuinely love their jobs — speaks volumes to the class and integrity of the business.

I have been taking my kids here for the last 10 years and must say that there was never a time when we came here and did not get a total Royal treatment coupled with incredibly high level of professionalism by all the staff from the welcoming and always smiling front desk personel to the top of the line Doctors. Today the most heavenly Dr Yang took care of my dental needs and I could not be happier with the outcome. This is the Best Dental Office in Brookline for sure.

I have been this clinic for wisdom tooth extraction and invisible line for several times. So far, everything is great! I like the atmosphere here. The Taiwanese lady at the front desk is so adorable and friendly (Thanks for your bread). Doctor Yang is professional and patient. I strongly recommend people with Asian background to talk to her. Amazingly, I didn’t feel any pain when I had my wisdom teeth removed at this clinic! One thing I really like about this clinic is that they try to persuade you to keep your teeth instead of pulling out as many as you can.

I’ve been coming here for over a year and all I can say is that the dental staff are extremely knowledgeable and very well informed. Friendly, hardworking, and the will to go above and beyond, what more could you want? Patrick is also an awesome guy and is very transparent in all scheduling and insurance questions. If you need anything dental related, come here!

I recently had some tooth restoration done at TSI and I must say my experience was amazing. The staff was very friendly & the assistant was very thoughtful and kind. Each and every step was explained to me throughly by the doctor. They made sure I was comfortable through the whole procedure. I am very happy with the overall service and I highly recommend this office to all my friends and family.

(Translated by Google) The staff at the clinic are very friendly. The sister at the front desk is good-natured and gentle. Doctors will give professional advice while respecting my personal choices. They also provided me with different braces solutions for my reference. I will continue to experience the skills of washing and filling teeth. Class of service!

Nice and efficient service! I’ve had several appointments with Dr. Yang. She gave me many professional suggestions about Invisalign based on my needs and oral condition, not just asked me to pay for it without considering the condition of my teeth and bone. The staff here are efficient in their work and good at communicating with me about my concerns.

Eli A. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


Amazing staff, super professional and everyone is very personal. I would highly recommend the smile institute for all you dental needs! Very family friendly environment. There is a really cool game for the kids to play and win a prize. They keep the facility very clean at all times and always nicely decorated. If your looking for a Dentist in the Brookline area i would check them out 1st!

I have tried looking for a good Dentist’s office in the Brookline area for a year now, and I finally found it at the Smile Institute. It was super clean and nicely decorated. There was the perfect balance of receiving quick and efficient service while feeling like I was a priority to them. After my Zoom whitening treatment here my smile has never looked better!

I have been coming to the Smile Institute for my dental needs for more than two years and more recently for Invisalign. For every visit, from routine check-up to cleaning, the wait time between checkin and being treated was less than 10 mins. Once I’m with the doctor, the doctor always spends time to address all the concerns and questions I had in addition to providing the dental care I needed to its finest extend. What I appreciate the most is that the doctors here never suggest the most expensive treatment plan but rather those that suit my needs the most.

Nice place to go to for solving teeth problems in Boston! I went there for different dental issues, and all the doctors there are very professional and friendly. The people from the front desk are super intimate and helpful; they help me figure out all the questions I have and ask about my feelings. Love this dental place.

Leon X. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


I recently moved to Boston and visited here two weeks for regular cleaning and Zoom whitening. Dr. Yang answered all the questions and concerns that I had and the whole whitening process was smooth and comfortable. The whitening is very effective and my colleagues noticed them the next day. One thing that’s worth mentioning is that, I was able to get an appointment within a week and the waiting time on the day of visit was short. There are also entertainments (a claw machine!!!) in the waiting area. I definitely would come back here for my dental needs and I recommend this dental office to anyone who wants good dental experience with low costs .

From the moment we walked into practice, we were met with impecable service. The facility is state of the art and the manner in which your child is addressed and his or her case handled unparalleled. We have each had braces, have siblings, nieces, nephews and friends all of whom have said their experiences do not compare to what we are now experiencing at the Smile Institute. Our son is happy and not at all uncomfortable. The practice communicates through email and text to confirm appointments for your convenience and has state of the art electronic systems. It has been a great experience thus far. Thank you!!

Doctor Yang and her assistant were very professional and friendly. She told me about results of my XRay and overall checkup. Asked questions and explained everything about concerns and questions that I had. Machine ultrasound cleaning was fast and gentle, followed by manual cleaning and flossing.

I recently had extraction at The Smile Institute. My experience at the facility was amazing.Staff was very thorough during and after the procedure. They made sure to follow up with me the next day to make sure I was doing okay after my procedure. I am very happy with the service, and the doctor was so skillful. I would recommend this place to all my friends and family.

This is the BEST dental clinic I have ever been. They are extremely kind, patient and helpful. I will come back and more details after I finish my root canal. Just did my root canal. I have seen many dentists since childhood and no one is better than Dr. Yang. She’s very careful and attentive during the treatment and explain to me what’s going on patiently. Very few doctors are so sympathetic to patient’s sufferings as if they themselves were suffering. The assistant is a little bit clumsy but that’s okay. I will definitely come back for future dental issues.


Dr. Yang earned her DMD (Doctor of Dental Medicine) from Boston University School of Dental Medicine. She also received a Master of Science in psychology from Columbia University. Her compassion, diverse cultural background, and bilingual fluency and extrovert personality allow her to create amazing relationships with her patients. Besides, she is also a partner at Overseas Students Service Corp. She was selected for the list of 2018 American Chinese 30 under 30.
