Safari Smiles would like to introduce Dr. Hyun Shik Choi as owner and practicing Pediatric Dentist! Since Dr. Maureen Gonta’s retirement, Dr. Choi has been working with the team at Safari Smiles and is excited for the opportunity to establish long lasting relationships with all of his patients, old and new.
