Why patients love Dr. Stanley Sun

Patient of Stanley Sun Periodontist in South San Francisco

Maily W.

He's gentle, has great energy, very through and he aims to please all his patients. I highly recommend Dr. Sun if you're looking for a periodontist. Dr Sun is exceptional and well-experienced. If you're one of those people who's afraid to have your wisdom tooth pulled, severe gum disease and need denture....Dr Sun is your guy!! 

"I had to get an extraction by Dr Sun and let me tell you! He is one funny guy! He's so sweet and made me eat (nutritional bars and protein shakes) something before he injected me so that I would have a full tummy. I couldn't believe it! Not only that, I was cold so they brought me a blanket as well! He was so gentle with the extraction I didn't feel a thing!
