Originally from South Korea, Hyon Goodman has been working as a hygienist in New York City for more than 20 years. “And it never gets boring,” she says. “It’s probably obvious, but I’m a big people person. I love meeting new people, I love taking care of people. I’ve made very good friends with some of my patients over the years.”

And there’s a reason those friendships have lasted so long: “Trust has to be earned,” she says. “And you earn it by speaking the truth, and by showing people what you’re genuinely about. You open up to people and they’ll feel comfortable opening up to you. That’s my specialty.”

No matter where you are in your oral health journey, Hyon is here to help. “I was 28 the first time I went to the dentist,” she says. “I just wasn’t exposed to it when I was younger. I have 5 implants, and another one still to get. I get cavities very easily. Whatever you’ve got going on, we can take care of it, one tooth at a time.”
