Welcome to Our Practice

Elite Dental Group – Lakewood is Dr. Jung’s biggest clinic and is considered the headquarters of Elite Dental Group. Here, Dr. Jung has built an in-house lab which tremendously increases efficiency in getting patients dentures, implants, etc. Dr. Jung has always envisioned a future where everyone can access high-quality, efficient, and innovative dental care. He wants Elite Dental Group to be recognized as a community-driven dental clinic that prides itself on having a team of caring professionals that treat patients with compassion and integrity at all times. With Dr. Jung focusing on only advanced procedures such as oral surgery and implants, he is constantly going to and from his other clinics. This leaves Dr. Bender as the main doctor here at the Lakewood clinic.
