You just don't know when the process has started and then your gums are numb. Sounds to good to be true. That's the feeling I get every single time I go through the process.
Dr. Son is very patient and genuinely gives off a positive comforting energy. I've been maybe 7 times and each time I leave grateful.”

Reviewed by Emily C. “Amazing! I was looking last year for a holistic minded dentist for major work on my teeth. After hours and hours of searching and speaking to offices mainly in LA, I found Dr Son. His prices were much better than the holistic dentists in LA and his attention to detail and kind heart put me at ease.
I literally almost fell asleep while having a crown put in, it was that pleasant. (I used the gas and the mouth piece that rests gently to keep mouth open while they work and act as a suction. It’s a genius invention that I haven’t seen at other offices I consulted with.)
His office staff and assistants are top notch and the hygienist corrected me on several habits no other hygienist had addressed in detail which I know will save my teeth from future work.
I suggest getting in with them before they become to hard to get a new patient appt. (That’s what happened with my holistic Endocrinoligist;)
Thanks Dr Son!”
