Juliana Yun, D.D.S., P.C.
DR. JULIANA YUN credits her late father for her decision to become a dentist. As the first Korean dentist in New York City, he paved the way and exemplified the meaning of trusted doctor and friend. His best advice “Never forget that the mouth you are treating is connected to a human being with feelings and emotions,” are words by which Dr. Yun practices every day.
A board-certified periodontist, Dr. Yun has a natural ability to make a personal connection with each patient. Her expansive career started right after dental school at Stony Brook University as a dentist in the United States Navy and then a practicing dentist in New York City for 15 years, giving her a broad understanding of patients from all walks of life.
Her reputation for being one of the most empathetic and compassionate dentists is evident as she works with patients who require the simplest to the most complex of restorative dental needs. “I enjoy the process of uncovering the reasons why a smile is changing, and how I can restore or rejuvenate it with proper function leading to beautiful aesthetics,” she says. “Often times, it’s working with a team of specialists to do the least amount of dentistry with maximum results.”
Now in private practice, Dr. Yun’s most proud accomplishment is the personal attachment patients have for her and the practice’s dedicated team. From the first phone inquiry to the doctor’s personal call following any procedure, patients feel welcomed and safe in Dr. Yun’s gentle hands. “Getting to the bottom of why a person came to my practice is the first and most important step,” explains Dr. Yun. “When someone presents with periodontal disease and requires treatment, it’s important to understand the history so I can get them back to a point of health.”
Dr. Yun offers a wide scope of periodontics from cosmetic crown lengthening to periodontal plastic surgery, extractions, implants, deep cleanings and full arch implant placement, to the treatment of periodontal disease.
Her leadership and stellar reputation were the catalysts for the creation of a study club where she and area dentists review new techniques and complex cases. “State-of-the-art technology and surgical skills are expected,” she says. “What sets our office apart is its warmth and humanity.”
