Meet The Team

YJoon Coe, DDS, MSD, MS: General dentist & Prosthodontist, Dental Education

Dr. Coe grew up in Seoul, South Korea and Chicago, IL. He inherits the legacy of a dental family – his father is a prosthodontist and an alum of the prestigious University of Chicago, while his uncle and brother are both running highly successful dental practices. Most importantly, his lovely wife is also a heavily credentialed dentist, and the business companion of this practice. Unlike most dentists, Dr. Coe is certified in 3 different specialty areas in clinical dentistry. He attributes the motivation behind this passion as “to become a better, all-around clinician” that can better serve his patients. He likes hobbies that can inspire him with artistic senses: music (acoustic guitar), aromatherapy, cuisine, and theme travel around the globe. Dr. Coe enjoys outdoor activities through mountain biking, hiking and tennis.
