Jeffrey Yui, DDS

“It is my privilege to provide treatments that help people retain their own, natural teeth. Tooth loss can be an emotionally difficult experience for a patient, so I strive to help people keep their teeth for as long as possible. As an endodontist, I am in a unique position to help people feel better, improve their oral and overall health, and encourage them to maintain their natural teeth.” – Dr. Yui

Dr. Jeffrey Yui is our endodontist who specializes in root canals. Endodontics allows Dr. Yui the opportunity to improve his patients’ quality of life by restoring an infected tooth to ideal health and function. Dr. Yui’s gentle touch and attention to detail allows even the most complicated endodontic procedure to be done quickly, effectively, and with very little discomfort. In fact, he loves seeing his patients pleasantly surprised when they expect a root canal to hurt, and the opposite ends up to be true!

Dr. Yui attended the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry for his Doctorate of Dental Surgery. He then completed a one-year Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency with Lutheran Medical Center in Oakland. Afterwards, Dr. Yui worked in a community clinic and private practice prior to beginning his specialty training in endodontics at Temple University in Philadelphia.
