Byung Sun Yoo, DDS, is a highly skilled and accomplished dentist who specializes in biocompatible dentistry. He provides exceptional care to his patients at his practice, conveniently located in San Diego, California.
Dr. Yoo earned his dental degree from the University of Colorado School of Dentistry in 1996. Immediately after graduating, he relocated to San Diego, and in 1999, he purchased Dr. David C. Kennedy dental practice in historic Bankers Hill. Transforming Dr. Kennedy’s practice into his own taught him the power of alternative dental care, such as working with a mercury-free environment and using microscopic evaluation for nonsurgical periodontal therapy.
In March of 2000, Dr. Yoo attended a seminar hosted by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, where he learned about the superiority of the “whole body” approach to dentistry over traditional dental philosophies. He subsequently incorporated a wide range of specialties into his practice to better serve his patients, including orthodontics, sleep dentistry, and TMJ treatments.
Dr. Yoo stays current with the latest advancements in biological dentistry by attending seminars and continuing education courses. He’s a proud member of a number of professional organizations, including the Appliance Therapy Practitioners Association, Dental Amalgam Mercury Solutions, the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, the International Association of Orthodontics, and the Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation.
Outside of work, Dr. Yoo is devoted to his family and his church. He attended a Billy Graham Crusade in 1987 that led him to accept Jesus Christ as his personal savior. His faith and desire to serve the Lord is what guided him into his career in dentistry. He looks forward to working with patients both new and old and giving them beautiful and healthy smiles.
