Dr. Min is Korean American and a native to Southern California, having grown up with his parents and sister in Cerritos, CA. Dr. Min always knew he would be working with his hands in his career, as he was always talented at taking things apart and putting them back together. Dr. Min was drawn to dentistry in college when he met a dentist and saw the compassion he had for patients, the leadership he showed his staff, and the artistry of his work. He immediately knew this was the career for him.
Dr. Min has been practicing cosmetic and general dentistry in Ontario, CA since 2006. He takes a compassionate approach that puts even the most anxious patients at ease. Dr. Min is a strong advocate of technology and ongoing education, continually refining his knowledge base and artistic dental technique. Each year, he devotes a significant amount of time to postgraduate training in cosmetic and implant dentistry.
Outside of the dental office, Dr. Min spends much of his time with his wife, Leslie, and their son, Evan. He also enjoys golfing whenever he has a chance.
Dr. Michael Min received his undergraduate degree in Molecular Cell Biology from UC Berkeley. He continued his education at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston Massachusetts in 2002, where he received his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree.
Immediately after graduating from dental school, he went to work in Bakersfield for a few years, where he was exposed to a variety of surgical aspects of dentistry. He also had an opportunity to work for a professor of periodontology at UCSF Dental School, who mentored him on implant dentistry.
Dr. Min is licensed in the state of California, and is a member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, and American Academy of Implant Dentistry.
“Most people don’t enjoy going to the dentist. I believe in being delicate with the care I provide patients. I enjoy exceeding expectations, and changing perceptions of a dental visit into a positive one. The thought of dentistry can cause a lot of anxiety in patients. At Vista Dental Care, we try to ensure that your dental experience here will be thorough, relaxing, and accessible. I have committed myself to hundreds of hours in continuing education in order to provide the most thorough dental care possible to patients in Ontario, CA.”
Dr. Michael Min, DDS.
