Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon Joins Adventist Health Clear Lake

Dental Care

June 19, 2018 (Clearlake, Calif.) – Adventist Health Clear Lake is proud to welcome KyungHoon Chung, DDS, MD, to its provider team. Dr. Chung is a board certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon who will see patients and perform procedures in Clearlake.

“We are proud to bring this much-needed service and excellent provider to Lake County. Previously, patients would have to travel to other counties to access oral and maxillofacial surgery services,” said Brent Dupper, executive director of physician and outpatient services. “Dr. Chung’s surgical skills and mission-minded approach to care will make him a valuable member of our medical community.”

Chung previously served at Primary Children’s Hospital as an oral and maxillofacial surgeon and craniofacial surgery fellow and has trained internationally in surgical techniques. He was recognized by the American Dental Association for humanitarian service to people of foreign countries and is actively involved in international medical mission trips to treat children with cleft lip and palate. He is board certified by the American Board of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery and performs procedures including corrective jaw surgery, dental implants, extractions, bone grafting, surgical treatments for snoring and sleep apnea and cleft lip and palate surgery.

“Serving in the community that has not had local access to oral surgery services gives me the opportunity to touch the lives of those I work with and it allows me to witness the long-lasting impact of transformation,” Dr. Chung states. “I look forward to serving patients in Lake County and working alongside the clinic and surgical teams at Adventist Health Clear Lake.” 

Dr. Chung completed his dental training at Loma Linda University in Southern California and worked as a dentist at a rural health clinic in Yakima, Washington. He then went on to complete medical school and surgery residency at the University of Missouri, Kansas City, and Craniofacial surgery fellowships at Chang Gung Memorial Hospital in Taoyuan, Taiwan and the Craniofacial Foundation of Utah in Salt Lake City, Utah. He completed undergraduate studies nearby in Napa County and enjoys outdoor activities. He looks forward to returning to the beautiful landscape and friendly people of this area of Northern California.

Patients may schedule an appointment with Dr. Chung at the Adventist Health Clear Lake Medical Office – Clearlake by calling (707) 995-4540. The clinic is located at 15230 Lakeshore Drive in Clearlake and accepts Partnership HealthPlan of California, Medi-Cal, Medicare and most private insurances. In addition to dental and surgical care, the clinic offers pediatric and primary care services, pain management, eye care, obstetric & gynecological care, behavioral medicine and more.
