Patient Testimonials
We take the time to listen to you and customize our treatment plans accordingly.
  • Our family has been coming to the doctors at Vision Dental now for over 2 years and we still make the drive even though we moved across the city. My hygienist Christine is the best! She makes me feel comfortable and does the cleaning in a caring way. All of the fillings we did also turned out fantastic. I like how the staff and doctors are patient and good at explaining things each visit.

    Friendliest staff and doctors that genuinely care. My daughter had braces done at Vision Dental with Dr. Cheng, and she now has the most beautiful smile. I can see a big difference in her self-esteem and confidence, and am so glad we came. The office is clean, and I was always impressed by their helpful staff. Highly recommend!

  • Our 3-year-old daughter had some complex dental issues, and we checked out other pediatric dentists before finally finding Dr. Andrew at Vision Dental. From the start, he made us feel more comfortable than ever, as he explained my daughter’s situation thoroughly and reviewed our options. When it came time for her procedures, he was very gentle and kept our daughter (and us) calm. He takes a conservative approach and treats only what is necessary, which is what we were looking for. f you’re looking for the best pediatric dentist, Dr. Andrew Huynh has my highest recommendation!

    Dr. Andrew Huynh is the best pediatric dentist there is! We bring our two young children to see him (ages 2 and 4), and he is wonderful with them every time! The TV on the ceiling really helps to distract my kids, and they love the great selection of prizes at the end of their visit! From a parent perspective, Dr. Andrew takes the time to explain everything to me and always answers all my questions. He makes himself available afterhours both by phone and email, which really puts me at ease. Overall, this office is amazing and I would recommend Dr. Andrew to anybody looking for a great pediatric dentist for their children!

  • Dr. Huynh in pediatrics is my all time favorite dentist for my three kids. He's thorough, gentle, informative, and down-to-earth. I also appreciate how he follows-up on previous issues for my 10 year old son and 8 year old daughter. What's really impressive is how he handles my shy 4 year old who gets easily spooked by new experiences. With Dr. Huynh's attention to detail and the high-tech offices with state of the art everything, I feel like my kids are getting the best care possible.
