Amerlie Yi DMD
Restorative and cosmetic smile artist.
"Growing up I had a dentist who I loved, but I know that not everyone has had the same good experiences. I’ve just always had a vision that I would help make people less anxious and more comfortable with the dentist so they can have healthy smiles. It’s turned out to be such a rewarding career because not only do I get to help people learn how to maximize their oral health, but I get to meet and interact with so many people each day."
