Dr. Ming is very kind and gentle. I have a major fear of going to the dentist since the last time I went over 10 years ago, due to a bad experience with another dentist. Because of not going for so long, the consequences were there. I was fearful of feeling pain,which I have a low pain tolerance when it comes to getting work done on my mouth. But Dr. Ming is straight up with you, yet sensitive to your fears. He does listen if you have any fears or concerns and he will do his best to make you feel comfortable. If for any time you feel pain while he is working on you, he will stop and give you more numbing around the area that hurts. I do recommend 100%, I think he's honest and his prices are a lot better anywhere else I've seen. I am having my spouse and children go to him for now on.
