Dr. Hyun values spending time with her husband, periodontist Dr. Guy Huynh-Ba, cooking, and visiting with family and friends.


"It was amazing, fast, professional, and no pain, love this place Tanks a lot to Doctor Hyun and Louisa (Surgical assistant) you are amazing"



"I recently had gum recession surgery performed by Dr. Hyun. Dr. Hyun is a skilled surgeon, professional and compassionate and I am very grateful to have her as my periodontist. Thank you to Candice and Lourisa for your assistance. All the employees are friendly, personable, knowledgeable and make you feel comfortable. My experience was definitely 5 star from the moment I entered the practice."



"My dentist recommended Premier to get a gum grafting procedure done, and while it has been a rough recovery and healing process, Dr Hyun and Lourisa and their assistant, Jessica, handled the surgery with ease and got me in and out while being so kind in answering my many questions pre and post operation. They have been very attentive and supportive and quick to offer solutions when my body wasn’t responding the way it should."



"Dr.Hyun, Lourisa, Jessica, and all the staff are very friendly, thorough, and professional. They very clearly explained the procedure to me prior to starting; and were also very clear in their aftercare instructions. I would highly recommend to others needing periodontal care!"



"Dr Hyun and her team: Lourisa, Amy and Candice are the best! So professional and organized. The atmosphere in the office puts you at ease immediately. I'm so happy to be their patient!!"
