We received wonderful news recently. Vista Dental Care’s own Dr. Michael Min, DDS, was recently honored with the 2015 Patients’ Choice Award in Ontario Dentistry, verified by Opencare.com, an online resource for connecting patients with top dentists nationwide. We are so proud of him!

Dr. Michael Min, DDS.

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.

Education

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.

Career

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.

Associations

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.”

Jeanette A.

Registered Dental Hygienist

I am a first generation, Southern, CA native. I have three wonderful kids who keep me active. I originally wanted to become a dentist, but I decided to become a hygienist instead because it allowed me to spend more time with my kids. I received my bachelor’s degree as an R.D.H. from the Loma Linda University School of Dentistry. I spent six years as a dental assistant, and have been a hygienist for eight years. I love dentistry; using art and science to help our patients look and feel better is extremely gratifying. There’s nothing better than when a patient expresses their appreciation for our help. Vista Dental Care is more than a workplace for me—we are a family and a great team committed to each of our patients. Outside of the office, I enjoy golfing, hiking, sketching, singing, music, and going to the gym.

I’m the middle child of five kids and also the only girl in the family! I originally thought about a career in nursing, but with some guidance, I realized dental was for me. I’ve been practicing at Vista Dental Care since 2007, and the staff and patients are awesome. We all work well with each other. Dr. Min is great to his staff and caring to all his patients. Outside of the office, I love going to the beach, visiting museums, camping, watching movies, playing paintball and doing Zumba! Something that patients may not know about me is that outside of work, I go by my middle name, Susie.

Front Office

I’ve been a part of the dental team here at Vista Dental Care since 2010. I actually got into the dental field by chance, and I have really come to enjoy it. As the others have said, we really have a great group here. What I enjoy most about my job is the interaction and relationships that I build with our patients. Outside of the office, I love spending time outdoors with my two beautiful daughters, going to the beach, having BBQ’s in the park, and exploring new places.
