Eric Yum DDS
Your Camarillo Dentist
Eric Yum DDS has been with the practice since 2003. He was born in Palo Alto, California. He graduated from USC Dental School in 1998. Between 1998 and 2003 he spent time in private practice in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills.
Dr. Yum has a regular column in Camarillo Health Care District’s health journal and provides free screenings as well. He also volunteers at the Simi Valley Free Dental Clinic.
His approach to dentistry is to not force the issue unless necessary. He treats dental emergencies aggressively, and spreads preventative work out over a longer period of time, easing the cost of treatment. He believes some dental projects can wait until next year especially when your dental insurance benefits reset.
He witnessed first hand the circus of extreme dental makeover’s in the early 2000’s, and believes dentistry is now where it should be – at a “basic grass roots level.” This includes regular check-up and cleanings and educating patients about the need for healthy gums and teeth.
