Dr Han is the absolute best. If he were to move to another state we would plan our vacations around my daughter's dental visits :)

Dr. Han is wonderful - he is kind and patient and very considerate. My kids both have dental anxiety and a strong gag reflex. But he and the hygienists have always been willing to work with and encourage them in order to get the needed x-rays. The entire experience - from the fish tank in the lobby to the kid-friendly environment in the treatment rooms - has always been great. We are so very fortunate to have found such a great dentist!

Dr. Han and his team are the best! We transferred both of our kids from another dentist office to Dr. Han's office. Dr. Han is super friendly and extremely patient with kids. He explains everything in details to help both kids and parents understand the procedure as well as dental care knowledge. He can also speak mandarin, which is a plus for our family.

As a dental assistant, I was very worried about what the perception would be that my child has cavities. Dr. Han explained things in simple language so that my husband could better understand his recommendations for treatment. He was magical with Eva! I had never seen her behave so well at the dentist office and she has been going to see the dentist since she was 1.

Yes, I would recommend him to my friends. He speaks fluent Chinese as well, so my wife can communicate with him as well. He is very friendly and knowledgeable, and very gentle to the children.

Dr. Han and his assistant were so nice and caring. They had a ton of patience and made my child feel comfortable and provide a fun environment for her. They used language she could understand and provided good distractions like fun glasses and movies while she was being examined.

Dr Han is EXCELLENT. My son is special needs and was terrified to go to the dentist. Where we use to go, we would pull up to the dental office and he would start to shake and cry and say "NO!". He now has no problem going at all, he might even like it. They treat him so well. He feels special. They don't force him to do anything he's not comfortable with, and still is able to get a full exam.

I really appreciated how Dr. Han first addressed my daughter, and then spoke to us. He made her feel like the most important person in the room - even at 5 years old. And despite what I'm sure was a busy day, we never felt like he had anywhere else to be. The time he spent with us was excellent.
