We have enjoyed living and practicing in this great community of Maple Grove, and we believe that this has been vital to our continued growth and success. We believe that as healthcare professionals, we all strive to provide the highest level of care using not only the latest but the most suitable materials and technologies available to us. But it is how we deliver our care to our patients that really makes us stand out. The old adage of "bedside manner" or in our case "chairside manner" can't always be taught or purchased, and I believe we possess this to cultivate the ever so important relationship between us and our patients.

I recently experienced an impacted wisdom tooth. Upon calling the office, Karla took my information, chatted with Dr. Chang, and told me to come in immediately to the office. I had a very short wait as they fit me in to Dr. Chang’s busy day of patients. Thank you for caring enough to get me back on the path to being pain free. I appreciate it!!.. [+]
