Dr. Sohyun Park is a board-certified periodontist and a diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology. She earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery from the State University of New York at Buffalo and then spent an additional year in Advanced Education in General Dentistry program from Lutheran Medical Center in Albany, NY.
