Dr. Wayne Yee
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.
