Though he has more than 25 years of dentistry experience in the city of Modesto, Dr. Wayne Yee isn't content to let these years stand alone when it comes to his expertise. In addition to his practical experience, it's the letters MAGD that point to something more impressive. MAGD stands for Master of the Academy of General Dentistry, a title whose requirements entail at least 1,200 hours of continuing education, the mastery of a sprawling, 16-discipline and 500-question exam, and the annual achievement of four times the amount of continuing education required for a state license.
As one of the few dentists to meet these rigorous standards—fewer than 2% of practicing dentists in the United States, Dr. Yee points out—Dr. Yee takes great pride in his practice. He strives to offer transparent dentistry to his patients, meaning he's invisible when he treats you. With a gentle touch, Dr. Yee uses the latest technology. He takes digital x-rays and imaging to capture accurate portraits of dental health, and operates intraoral cameras for close-ups of teeth and potential problems.
From the tip of the crown to the bottom of the root, Dr. Rashmi Beedubail specializes in restoring and maintaining virtually every part of the tooth.

With a strong background in science, she also looks out for the well-being of her patients with services such as nutrition counseling and tobacco cessation.

Those who dread visits to the dentist tend to be taken aback after stepping foot inside Dr. Emil Villaroman’s office for the first time. Dr. Villaroman and his staff seem to have taken their inspiration from a relaxing spa when designing their practice's two locations; at the Modesto office, for example, hanging lamps cast a soft glow on plush dental chairs that look out on a garden teeming with plants.
Such a tranquil, warmly lit space serves as an appropriate setting for the doctor’s remarkably gentle family, general, restorative, and cosmetic treatments. Dr. Villaroman sharpened his skills abroad before moving to the United States, and his international experience serves him well as he scrapes away plaque and rubs tongues clean of passport stamps. Staff members at the coral- and green-hued Modesto location hold specialty certifications and constantly continue their periodontal education. Similarly impressive, the Tracy office features a team that draws upon more than a decade of experience as they treat each patient with individual attention.
Dr. Christian Hoybjerg loves change. As an orthodontist, he gets to see smiles change and self-esteem levels soar as his corrective treatments shift teeth into straight formation. Working alongside Dr. Nathan Adams, they work together as dentist and orthodontist to help their patients achieve flawless smiles. Both doctors were educated at Loma Linda University Dental School, and keep right on learning with continuing-education courses and trainings in the latest procedures. Some common conditions he ameliorates include crowded teeth, underbites, and overbites.
