Dr. Michael Yeh Listens to his Patients

Dr. Michael Yeh's uses a “Personal Philosophy on Dental Care”. “I’ve been practicing for over 20 years. Many things have changed over the past 20 years in dentistry. I see people who have dental problems and when I’m finished with their treatments, they’re happy. We change people's lives with our dental care. I listen to what my patients say.

You and I decide what type of dentistry needs to be done and what’s to be done first. I diagnose your mouth the way I would diagnose my own family. I’ll tell you everything about your dental treatment, make my recommendations and give you alternative dental treatments. You decide which dental services you’d like me to do. You won’t feel forced into doing any dental treatments.

I believe oral health is part of your overall health. It affects you in many ways. These include your physical appearance, emotional status, mental outlook and well-being. Oral health affects your career, social life, self-esteem and quality of life. I believe the oral system is an important part of your total health.
