I have been working in dentistry for many years and still enjoy doing a variety of general dentistry.  Practicing dentistry has provided me a chance to meet many nice people and establish good friendships. I also like keeping up with new ideas and procedures through a dental study club that I belong to.   It is a very rewarding career.

Away from the practice, I like to go on dental mission trips to Central America.  It is a rewarding experience and it provides me a chance to travel, do some reef fishing, and relax – all things I enjoy.  At home, I enjoy cooking, eating, and spending time with my wife, family, and friends.

This past appt was just a cleaning, so very little contact. This dentist didn't seem to know how to use the EMR very well, couldn't find my history, was looking at a tooth on "watch" and I had to tell him it had already been taken care of, finally found the history section and read the tooth had already been taken care of. Didn't spend as much time looking at my teeth than my regular dentist does, so my confidence level was a little low by the time I left.

Dr. Lam is not very warm and friendly. Didn't really ask about any concerns. Was in the room for just a few minutes and didn't really explain what we were to be "keeping an eye on" regarding my teeth.

Dr Lam didn't acknowledge me upon entering the room. he was too busy whining about his schedule to the hygienist. he didn't hurt me but he moves fast and wasn't slow and deliberate. the Dr always feels my neck and under my jaw and tongue. all Dr Lam did was push my tongue aside with the mirror.

Dr. Lam (? I think is his name) was great - first time I have seen him for a procedure. He was very kind and followed through on my request to tell me everything he was doing step by step to reduce my anxiety.

Doctor came in at the beginning of cleaning and did not introduce himself then proceeded to complain about his schedule. When he returned before cleaning completed he did a very rushed exam and did not have a grasp of y history. I have had multiple grafts due to recession and this is my foremost concern and both the hygienist and dentist did not thoroughly address this.

With no issues after cleaning, he spent less than 10 minutes with me so I really do not know him well enough to fully evaluate how good a dentist he is. He is probably pretty good.

Dr. Lam included me in the exam by showing me what my small cavities looked like on the x-ray as well as explaining the source of my jaw tenderness using approachable language. It was wonderful that he took the time to discuss these with me and made sure that I understood.

I had a hard time understanding him; especially through the protection mouth piece. He did explain what he was doing until I asked him- looking for cancer on or around my mouth.

I have had an on going issue for almost 20 years and no one can ever figure it out. Dr. Tan immediately had a suggestion of a full panel xray. His suspected cause of the issue is what I have been saying it is for 20 years and no one has listened to me before. I am going to have the xray done and be seen by him.

Dr. Lam has been my dentist for over 30 years. I trust him to know what is needed when I have a problem and to take care of it. He works well with adults and with kids. I would recommend him to friends and I already have.

the dentist asked the hygienist to mark a certain tooth to be watched. I asked him directly which tooth is he referring to, he did not answer. I asked again, he said he will let me know in a minute and he did not.

Dr. Lam always explains how he will proceed and what to expect. He works very quickly and does a beautiful job! He's an artist, very talented! Further, he's very friendly.

Dr was agressive in pushing on back molars with tools, much more so than my regular doctor which is much gentler.

Really unsure what he was saying at first, but you could tell he was thorough- certainly good at reading Xrays! And after a minute or so, he showed me via the Xray, what he was trying to convey to me, about a cavity between 2 teeth..

I went in to have a bad tooth fixed and ended up with 4 fillings. Overall disappointed more with atmosphere than anything else. Did not feel like I was treated as individual, more as one of the cattle one the call.
