About Dr. Dana Yoon, SE Portland Family Dentist

Introduction

Dana Yoon, DDS, received her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry, where she graduated with honors. After providing care for patients in Southern California for 2 years, she moved back to her hometown of Portland to serve her local community.

Extensive Experience

Once back in Oregon, she worked alongside her parents, who are both dentists in the Portland area. She then took a position as the lead dentist at a dental office near Gresham where she practiced until joining the team at Belmont Family Dentistry.

Her familial background in dentistry has shaped her professional aspirations and taught her the importance of individualized and compassionate care. She understands that each patient has a unique background, approach to dental care, and list of needs and desires, so she strives to create an open dialogue through which a comprehensive plan is created collaboratively. Her goal with each patient is to take the time necessary to educate, explain, and answer questions to ensure that patients feel informed and confident.

Personal Life

Dr. Yoon was born and raised in Portland, and currently lives in the central eastside neighborhood. She is a true Pacific Northwesterner and loves to be outdoors rain or shine; so you may run into Dr. Yoon on the countless hiking trails in Mt. Hood National Forest, the Columbia Gorge, or along the Oregon coast. Dr. Yoon also enjoys exploring Portland’s amazing food and coffee scene, as well as traveling abroad in search of culinary or outdoor adventures with her partner, Alex, and is eager to exchange restaurant, recipe, or travel recommendations with her patients.

Dr. Yoon loves that dentistry provides a unique opportunity to provide innovative and technical healthcare in such a personal setting. Being able to make real differences for her patients by alleviating pain, providing education, or creating confidence through smiles, all while developing meaningful and long-lasting relationships, is her favorite aspect of being a general dentist.
