About Your Dentist

Jim Yu, DDS

"It is important to me to treat each patient as a real person, not just as a set of teeth. I want my patients to leave the office feeling like I was gentle, empathetic and I took the time to listen to them, answer their questions and calm their fears."


"Our goal is to give people the highest quality dental care in a state-of-the-art office. We hope our flexible hours, customized care, and how we treat you as an individual will exceed your dental expectations."

Ramiz S. Mogannam, DMD
