Who is Dr. Jon?

My name is Jonathan Yeung and I am the owner of Brewery District Dental in New Westminster, British Columbia. Having seen my dad work as a dentist since I was a kid, I decided I’d follow in his footsteps at the tender age of 8 (I’m joking – it was more like 12 or 13). My dream was finally realized when I obtained my dental degree from Boston University in 2009. I take pride in helping my patients in any way possible. That might mean teaching my young patients how to brush properly to keep them cavity-free, or it might mean re-building a badly broken down mouth from previous neglect. At Brewery District Dental, we don’t take shortcuts and we hold ourselves accountable to our patients. We’re here for you. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and our little dog Ellie, cooking, cycling, and supporting our beloved Canucks. Why am I blogging? I feel that it is important to educate the general public not only on dental health, but also on health in general. The mouth is the portal of entry to the rest of the body, so it makes sense when caring for your health to start right from the very beginning (AKA the mouth). Studies have shown that gum disease can be linked to heart disease and diabetes, to name a couple of examples. Furthermore, poor oral health can result in an overall decrease in quality of life. People with several missing teeth might not be able to eat all the foods that they enjoy, or maybe a broken tooth hurts every time you chew. Nobody wants to deal with those things, so we’re going to try and make sure our patients don’t find themselves in those situations. Prevention is the key to good health. I would like to contribute towards my New Westminster and Metro Vancouver communities by giving useful dental tips that promote good oral health.   How can I help? The following are some of the ways I can help you:

  1. I will be providing regular tips and articles on oral, dental, and general health via my blog, my Facebook account and my Instagram account. Please follow us!
