About Dr. BAE
Most people don’t think about dentistry as an art, but for me, it is as much art as science. About half of my practice is general dentistry, but the other half is made up of more extreme dental cases.
I consider myself an architect of healthy smiles. I can develop the vision and bring together the team of specialists needed to meet my patients’ needs. Whether dealing with routine dental care and prevention or complex reconstruction cases, my goal is to create healthy, confident smiles for my patients.
I’m meticulous about my work and I want my patients to be wholly satisfied with the results. I believe that it’s all about the details. At Enhance Dental, we are all about going the extra mile and overlooking no detail for patients. From the environment we create in the office to the skills I bring to my profession and patients, we strive for the highest quality in care.
I work with my team to know our patients well. To prepare for every need of our patients, our staff meets every morning to discuss the history, concerns, and patient flow for that day. Whether making people comfortable with complementary refreshments and reflexology or being able to communicate in their native language (we speak English, Spanish and Korean), our entire office is designed to put patients at ease.
I believe that a well-educated patient is an empowered patient. I spend a lot of time educating my patients about how to achieve and maintain optimal oral health. Whether reviewing the basics of good hygiene, the best diet or important health screenings to consider, I want my patients to view our relationship as an equal partnership.
Nothing looks more beautiful than
the confidence that comes from
my patients once they have
achieved a healthy smile.

What People Are Saying About Enhance Dental
As a child, our youngest son had a myriad of tooth problems with his self-esteem being put to the test. He was a happy-go-lucky boy, but his self-consciousness was obvious. He seldom showed his teeth when he smiled. As his baby teeth began to disappear, we discovered several of his permanent teeth had not developed (were missing). Missing teeth meant loss of bone structure with existing teeth being affected. Dr. Bae went above and beyond helping our son. He was a friendly, comforting, professional presence during the several growth years that were needed to correct everything. He was a tremendous help coordinating with the other necessary specialists throughout the whole experience.
I went to my first dental visit and cleaning in San Luis Obispo. The Doctor taught at UCLA for 9 years. Said my work was top of the line. The dental hygienist said "great color and fantastic margins". Thank you my good friend! 1
I found everyone in Dr. Bae's office to be very good at listening and also having a good sense of humor. 2
Dr. Bae and his staff are extremely professional. If your appointment is at a certain time you can bet that it will start at that time. 3
My family and I have been patients at Enhance Dental for about 4 years. Dr. Bae and has created an amazing team that truly provides a VIP service. 4
