“Dr. John Leung is so personable, genuine and kind, visiting him for dental exams has made him feel like a part of my family! I trust his knowledge and gentle approach. He has never led me or my husband and young child the wrong way. He gives practical advice on maintaining good oral health. You can tell he is passionate about dental care and helping people! I now travel from Fairfield to keep my dental appointments with him. He cares about my family and my teeth! Dr. Leung is so talented that he has been able to fill cavities for me painlessly without using any Novocain! Thank you, Dr. Leung!”

-Nicole V.

“I have been seeing Dr. Leung for over 10 years now, from whom I have received consistently great care over the period. The office always maintains a friendly and relaxed vibe. Appointments are relatively easy to get and Dr. Leung does most of the work himself. Several years ago, my gums began to recede fairly significantly and also began to develop deep pockets, which without intervention would have likely resulted in some very significant, costly and unpleasant procedures. Instead of the problem advancing further, Dr. Leung got me onto a program of quarterly cleanings and a clearly instructed, upgraded home-based self-care program which involved more effective and thorough brushing, flossing, use of prescription mouth wash, etc., and although I am still on a quarterly cleaning program, the acute issues have reversed and now have and have managed to maintain fairly healthy gums for several years. I am very happy to recommend him to anyone.”

"I have been using the dental offices of Dr. John Leung for the past 10 years. I have always found Dr. Leung and his staff to be very accommodating and cordial when interacting with them. Dr Leung is an outstanding dentist and has always performed at a very professional and compassionate level. He is kind, and very understanding and would always ensure that my needs were always met. I would highly recommend his services to anyone seeking a competent and a gentle mannered dentist."

– Joseph P.


“Dr. Leung is a top-notch dentist and I have been going to him for almost 10 years. In the early days, I did "defect" once (due to the traveling distance from Orinda to Burlingame/San Francisco) and saw Dr. EJ closer by. (This new dentist was all about the wow factor and on my first visit had mirrors put in my mouth so I can have a video tour to keep on disc of my mouth! What a joke!) Needless to say, I decided that it was worth the distance to stay with Dr. Leung. Dr. Leung is an "old-world" dentist in the very best sense of the word: He cares about his patients, takes pride in his work, has strong work ethics, and will absolutely not "up-sell" you on any cosmetic or unnecessary procedures. His practice may not have the most dazzling technology, but his skill and dedication more than makes up for it. His support staff is also friendly and professional. One can sense the respect they have for Dr. Leung and they work well as a team to meet their patients' needs.”

“Dr. Leung is a very good dentist and I have complete trust in him to take care of my dental needs. I have seen Dr. Leung for a long time at his Burlingame office, but now that he is at his convenient SF location on Ocean Ave, it is no effort at all for me to take BART for my visits (the M Muni stop is just steps away). What I like about Dr. Leung is that he is neither judgmental nor critical of your dental practices at home. Instead of just lecturing you about brushing and flossing, he will try to come up with solutions for your problems. For instance, he recommended for me to rinse with a mouthwash after brushing to help with heavy plaque buildup which has improved a great deal. Dr. Leung is honest and cares about your dental health.”

“(This testimonial is written on behalf of my brother who visited Dr. Leung in July this year for a free consultation.) After a bad experience with Western Dental in Concord, my brother visited Dr. Leung at his SF office for a free consultation and quote. Although it was a no-charge visit on a busy Saturday morning, Dr. Leung took the time to examine and explain to my brother who has a disability in a way that was easily understandable. He and his assistant, Rayna, and his front desk manager, Lilia, treated my brother with utmost kindness as if he was an actual patient. My brother's situation is complicated and we have yet to figure out what to do, but we truly appreciate everything Dr. Leung and his staff has done.”

David P.

“I’ve remained a loyal patient because I like the service and the work you’ve done with my teeth and gum: when I had my (4) wisdom teeth pulled, when I had the caps replaced on my three upper front teeth, and especially when you successfully performed my split gum surgery (front, lower jaw). I also like both locations in Burlingame and San Francisco. They are both very accessible to the freeway and equidistant to where we live. I like that you are open on Saturdays as well. I like talking to Lilia, your receptionist. I liked Fanny, your dental assistant, but now that she is no longer there, I’m getting used to your new dental assistant, Reina. First impression: nice lady. She has light hands when she polished/cleaned my teeth today and I liked that.”

“My husband and I have been coming to Dr. Leung for over a decade and agree that it is his thoughtful care of our teeth that continues to preserve them as we age. Several years ago I had a particularly troubling pain in my gum and he knew exactly what to do. When the initial work was complete he continued on to arrange for a partial plate which provides me with the important biting surfaces I need. He rechecks my bite regularly making sure I am getting the most out of all my teeth.”

Our dental office Dentist CA, Dental Practice of John K. Leung, D.D.S., P.C. will be using Apple Face Time, Facebook Messenger, Google Hangouts, or Skype video chat remote communication technology to conduct problem-focused evaluations/re-evaluations virtually, to help manage your oral health problem and to determine whether you have a condition that requires immediate in-office treatment.
During the current COVID-19 pandemic the federal government announced that it will not enforce HIPAA regulations (privacy for health records) in connection with medical and dental offices’ good faith provision of medical or dental services using non-public facing audio or video remote communications services. Remote patient consultations may take place over applications that allow video chats such as Apple Face Time, Facebook Messenger, Google Hangouts, or Skype and may involve or be based on photos or videos taken with smartphones by the patient and transmitted to the dental office. Please do not contact us using public-facing services such as Facebook Live, Twitch, or TikTok, which are not permitted by the federal government for this purpose. As always, our office will take dental record confidentiality very seriously, and will do what we can under the circumstances to protect the information you send us. While we believe the risk to such confidentiality is not high, it may be greater than it would be if these remote electronic communications were encrypted, which is one of the main HIPAA requirement that is being relaxed during the nationwide COVID-19 public health emergency. Certain major dental plans have announced that they will reimburse dental offices for conducting such remote evaluations, and we will submit claims in connection with them. Our dental office is using one or more of the permitted modalities listed above for remote transmission of information to conduct limited problem-focused evaluations. While entirely adequate in the vast majority of cases for such limited purposes, these evaluations may not reveal conditions that would be discovered during an office visit or through the use of specialized teledentistry technology. Please check the box to indicate your understanding of and informed consent to these terms, which will be in effect until the government rescinds its suspension of these HIPAA requirements.
