Dr. Jerry Young and Dr. Maureen Short

Healthy Teeth for a Healthy Smile

Drs. Young and Short opened their first practice in Diamond Bar, California in 1984 and moved to their current location in 1994.  The goal of the practice is to keep the patients smiling.  With prevention and personal attention, dentistry is less stressful and allows the patient a lifetime of healthy smiles.  This practice offers digital radio graphs and Velscope for oral cancer screening, as well as a full range of cosmetic dentistry services.  The focus of the practice is to do what is best for the individual patient.  It is that personal connection that makes the practice of dentistry rewarding.

Modern technology, regular training, and an eye on current developments in dentistry research: we do everything to ensure your teeth get expert treatment. Our relaxed atmosphere and friendly service go hand in hand – naturally.
