Hoyoung Choi, DMD
Dr. Hoyoung Choi went to dental school at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, and graduated in 2011. He completed his GPR residency in upstate New York in 2012, and he has a certificate from the California Implant Institute.
Dr. Choi’s goal in dentistry is to make every patient’s dental visit as relaxing, fearless and painless as possible. To achieve this goal, he always works hard to keep up with the latest and most effective techniques in the field. His dental philosophy is to always place the patient first; he cares about what they think and how they feel. He provides individual care for each patient, and it is very important to him that his patients understand everything and feel comfortable asking any questions they have. He treats patients of all ages and enjoys working with kids and the elderly, and his hope is everyone leaves his chair with a big smile.
Dr. Choi was born and raised in South Korea. After serving in the army, he came to the United States to study dentistry in 2002. He recently moved to Woodbridge from Chicago, and he is enjoying the weather down here! He has a little daughter, and he loves spending time with her and his family. He also likes playing tennis and watching movies.
He does have some free oral health advice for you: Having a hard time flossing? Soft picks or water picks are powerful additional tools to clean the food out from the spaces between teeth!

Tara Patterson, Dental Hygienist
I have been a dental hygienist for over 15 years and obtained my dental hygiene degree at Allegany College of Maryland. I was raised in the mountains of West Virginia, and after hygiene school, I moved to Beverly Hills where I practiced for a few years. Now, I currently reside in Lake Ridge with my husband and our three children. With a true passion for oral health, I am known for making the most nervous patients feel comfortable. I am honored to be a part of this team and to be able to provide outstanding care to great patients. I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, horseback riding and exploring the great outdoors.
