Salmon Creek Dental Center was built and equipped for General Dentistry, Oral Surgery, Implants, Endodontics and Dentures, covering all specialties. Dr. Jung’s vision for Salmon Creek Dental Center is to help each of her patients obtain their healthiest and brightest smile so they can enjoy the confidence that comes with achieving long term goals for a healthy smile!
Dr. Amy Jung is a believer in personalized care. She listens to what patients have envisioned as their smile goals and balances it with what they need for their oral health. She also places an emphasis on educating patients on their treatment and at-home care. Dr. Jung also extensively attends continuing education courses. It not only improves her skills but keeps her current, engaged, and excited about changes in the technology and techniques within dentistry. She feels very blessed to be practicing in the information age, where new techniques and materials are quickly evolving and improving. She loves technology and she tries to incorporate as much as possible into her practice for a better and more comfortable patient experience.
In her spare time, Amy loves cooking, hiking, and enjoying all the beautiful nature in the Pacific Northwest. She is also an active Volunteer at her church, involved with the music and outreach programs serving the local community. Amy is a classically trained concert pianist and enjoys just relaxing and playing piano when she has some down time.
“I have always enjoyed getting to know people and working with my hands. I knew at an early age that I wanted to be a dentist. Also, I believe that every person deserves a healthy smile. As your dentist, it is my goal to help you achieve this. I am committed to developing and maintaining long term relationships with my patients and strive to provide the best treatment for them.” Dr. Amy Jung
