Dr. Yong Peng San
Dr. Yong developed his dental practice in 1999 with the dream of creating a dental practice that makes a difference in the way people view dentistry. He crafted a method in which your experience as a patient was different from ‘visiting the dentist’ and would be more like visiting a friend for some help with your teeth. When you are in the company of friends and family, you feel relaxed, you know they always have your best interests at heart, you know they’re here to help and will be there for you if you need them.
Dr. Yong’s vision was to create an environment which had an energy and atmosphere of a friendly and caring dental practice team. A practice that provides his patients with outstanding customer service and professional dental care, day in and day out, while consistently delivering high-quality dentistry across the board from general to cosmetic and specialist care. It’s been over 15 years since that dream became a reality and today that dream lives on in all five of his dental practices in Penang.
In addition to the warm, welcoming staff and technical expertise his clinics offer, he has heavily invested in the latest technologies such as digital X-rays, Beyond Teeth Whitening, Cone-Beam Computed Tomography X-Rays and E4D Technology. When you pair up technical expertise with cutting edge proven techniques the results and the patient’s experience are fantastic. Dr. Yong is proud of the fact that his clinics are the only ones in Penang that can offer same day dental restorations; this service is hard to find almost anywhere in the world.
