Let’s Keep You
John K. Leung, D.D.S, P.C.
Neighborhood Family Dental Care
As your dentist, we want you to be confident knowing that we are, trained, highly skilled, well versed, and experienced in our profession. We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile beautiful and your body healthy. To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continual education and learning. We attend dental lectures, meetings, and dental conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern dental office can utilize to provide state-of-the-art dental care.
We provide a bevy of cosmetic treatments to our patients. If your teeth are stained, discolored, chipped, misaligned, or have gaps, our up-to-date cosmetic practice can remedy your concerns.
If you’re living with a missing tooth but want something more permanent than dentures or a bridge, a dental implant could be the safe and secure solution, which also prevents the resorption of the jaw bone.
We provide orthodontics treatments to patients of all ages, using both conventional, and tooth-colored brackets. We also implement the proven Clear Aligner system and Myofunctional appliances.
We treat gum diseases such as Gingivitis and Periodontitis, where the supporting structure of the teeth breakdown due to plaque and bacteria. We also provide gum and bone grafting procedures.
Root Canal Treatment
A root canal is a treatment needed when the nerve of a tooth becomes infected. We provide conventional treatment to clear the infection and save the tooth, and the additional surgical approach when necessary.
We make every effort to save your tooth, but at times, it may be necessary to perform extraction for such reasons as decay, periodontal diseases, improper eruptions, or wisdom teeth that are impacted.
Our office provides a full range of dental treatments from simple to complex. However, if you need a treatment that is outside the scope of our practice, we will let you know and refer you to someone who we trust. Your well-being is our utmost priority.
Having a good dentist is important to diagnose and prevent the early development of decay and plaque, through which much can be remedied with a routine bi-annual exam and cleaning.
Keeping a good daily oral hygiene, through proper brushing, and flossing, along with a healthy diet that minimize sugar and startch is requisite for healthy living and the avoidance of oral diseases.
We will take the time during office visits and help you stay informed about the state of your oral health, how it affects your body as a whole, and how to stay ahead.
“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!”
“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."

“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.”
“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.”
