The YDOK Experience

The Experience

0054-YummyDentalAssistantPatientMany people think of us as the Volvo of pediatric practices. We are a safe choice (Dr. Yum is on-staff at Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago and is exceptionally qualified), and we feature a Scandinavian-inspired, advanced, state-of-the-art, contemporary, inviting practice. Parents love that our entire facility is a HotSpot, so they can check e-mail or get work done, either on their laptops, or on the Netbook in our reception area. Kids often get lost in the children's movies we play on the flat screens in our treatment suites. Right when they walk in the door, our concierge issues them a "boarding pass," with their name and destination on it. Some days they're headed for the Hawaii treatment suite, other days they're headed to Disneyland. Some kids don't want to leave!

Our Mission

Yummy Dental and Orthodontics' mission is to provide exceptional pediatric dental care in a gentle and fun environment in which kids feel safe, and parents can relax. We aim to be the highest quality pediatric dental practice in Chicago.

In Dr. Yum's words ...

As a certified pediatric dentist, I take great pride in the following I have built over the years. I am humbled by their loyalty and consider it a privilege to treat their children.

We are strong believers in the concept that there is no better dental care for children than from certified pediatric dentists. Interestingly, while many dentists say they treat kids, most do not receive formal training to treat children. Even fewer are certified pediatric dentists. Certified pediatric dentists are intensively trained for years to provide comprehensive, preventative, and restorative dental care specially designed for infants, toddlers and teenagers.

Parents tell us that our exceptionally service-oriented approach, combined with our specialized clinical training, makes a big difference -- it often allows for the kids to feel safer and more at ease, which often makes the experience and treatment more successful.

We would love to meet you and your children and look forward to welcoming you to our practice!
