"I had 2 teeth removal and 2 implants installed by DR. Eirleen Hyun, and her assistants Candice, and Louisa at the Everett office. I never felt the needle with the anesthetic, and they made the whole procedures painless, comfortable, and very well done. They not only know how to perform their jobs very well but they are also compassionate, friendly, and easy to talk to. I totally recommend Dr. Hyun, her team, and the office staff."
