Patient Stories

Love Charlie! He’s a very caring dentist and really wants to make sure you’re comfortable. He explains everything he’s doing every step of the way and asks you how you’re doing frequently.

I usually (REALLY) hate going to the dentist, but I really liked Dr. Fung. It was a way different experience than my old dentist, who had a big office with many dentists, hygienists, and many patients going in and out. His office is very small, which makes it feel more comfortable, and allows for better personal care. The hygienist and Dr. Fung were both very good, gentle, and sensitive to the my needs. I definitely trust Dr. Fung to do great work (I have to get some fillings), and I felt like he really cared about me and wanted to figure out the best thing for me. I definitely recommend him and I’m very happy to have found him!!

I had an athletic injury that broke my front tooth and was terrified that it would never look normal. I had already been seeing Dr. Fung (since I was a kid) and knew I could trust him to fix it. He talked me through the entire process, as I was very nervous. I couldn’t believe the results. It was flawless. It has been several years since my tooth broke, and no one has EVER guessed that my front tooth is fake. I am forever grateful for Dr. Fung’s attention to detail, perfectionism, and for giving me my smile back.
Best dentist I have ever had! He and his staff are very caring and you can tell he actually cares about his patients. But most importantly he never tried to convince me I needed a procedure I didn’t. Normally I find dentists are like used car salesmen, but not Dr Fung. When I asked him about teeth whitening he explained what would happen, any risks, the cost and then let me make the decision without further pressure.

We brought the whole gang of 4 kids to see Dr. Fung last Saturday morning. It was our oldest 2 kids (4 & 3 years old) first trip to the dentist. I thought it would be a total gong show but the crew at Dr. Fung’s office were total professionals. Zero meltdowns and what was most impressive was how thoughtful they were. They knew we had 4 kids coming so they stocked up on toys for the kids. Definitely not their first rodeo and this Dad was happy to have someone who gets it. Thank you so much!!
