About the Team

Patients who come to Dr. Q Dental can receive general dentistry and cosmetic dental care from a single practice. We are supported by an assistant, registered dental assistant, hygienist, and insurance office manager.

Beyond our experience, what makes our team special is our commitment to a better patient experience. Not only do we follow all OSHA regulations and CDC guidelines, but you can expect to receive timely care, excellent communication, and personal attention. It is our goal to make you feel as though you are visiting a friend’s home—not a dental office—so that you are comfortable at every stage of treatment.

Mission Trip to Mexico

Patty Hierro, one of our Registered Dental Assistants, recently came back from a mission trip in Mexico.

I’m so grateful to have been able to experience this amazing mission trip in San Quintin, Mexico. It’s a rewarding feeling to give back by doing what I love and enjoy. Seeing the smile on everyone’s face after treating them was the best thing and it makes my job a lot easier knowing that I’m making a difference. I’m so thankful for Dr. Q & Dr. Yung for sponsoring me on this trip! Can’t wait for the next one!
