For Dr. John Young, dentistry is not only about providing fantastic dental services. It’s also about building long-lasting relationships with patients based on trust and kindness. With his many years of experience and gentle touch, you can expect to have a positive dental experience no matter what services you need. You can learn a bit more about his professional career and life outside the practice, making it all the more easier to strike up a conversation with him!
Originally from Issaquah, WA, Dr. Young first joined the team at Moreno & Young Dental back in 2009. One of the reasons he loved dentistry was that it gave him the opportunity to both work with his hands and his mind to create beautiful, long-lasting smiles that patients can enjoy.
After high school, Dr. Young went on to receive his Bachelor of Arts from Brigham Young University. There, he graduated with a degree in Microbiology. He would eventually go on to live and work for a year in England as a technician in a dental lab. His wife Misha was pursuing post-graduate studies at the time.
After leaving England, he enrolled at the University of Washington to earn his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. He would complete a one-year residency in General Hospital Dentistry at Mercy Medical Center in Canton, OH.
To this day, he is a member of the Washington State Dental Association, the American Dental Association, and the Academy of General Dentistry, where he is currently pursuing fellowship status from. He’s also part of the local R.L. Bruna Dental Study Club.
When he’s not providing dental care to patients, you’ll find Dr. Young spending time with his lovely wife and their two beautiful sons. He loves staying physically active and carries a passion for adventure, which is why he enjoys spending time in the great outdoors (including overnight!) He also loves golfing, running, volunteering with the Boy Scouts of America and coaching his sons’ soccer teams.
