Wanting to foster a comfortable dental practice experience for her patients, Dr. Park expanded her dental clinic into spa dentistry in 2006, where she pursued her interest in cosmetic dental care. Dr. Park believes dental professionals can restore or create perfect and healthy smiles while the patient enjoys a tranquil and serene spa-like environment.
