Yang & Horsley Dentistry I’ve always loved art, but I never realized how important it was to my life story! When my mom graduated from high school, she wanted to major in fine arts. Her dad encouraged her to try dentistry, which had overlapping requirements with art. She changed her major to dentistr y, and fell in love - twice. She met my dad in dental school, and discovered her passion for craf ting beautif ul smiles. My parents started their dental practice in Casa Grande in 1985, and moved to our current location on Cottonwood Lane in 1994. As a young girl, I spent afternoons in the office, practicing tooth-brushing techniques on mouth models. In high school, I learned to work as a dental assistant. With my parents’ care, guidance, and focus on education, I also chose to become a dentist. And, like my mom, I met my husband in college. I introduced him to the dental field, and in 2008, we both graduated from Loma Linda University

School of Dentistry, which is known for faith-based values, focus on wholebody health, and emphasis on treating people with compassion. The motto at LLU is “Service is our Calling”, so in 2009, when the City’s CG Cares program challenged local business to give back to the community, I was excited to participate. Crafting changed my life again. We founded Spark a Smile, a free monthly gathering at our office, where we create handmade greeting cards to share joy in our community. We donate to hospitals, charities, and anyone else who might need a smile! I think it’s our serving hearts and creativity that make our dental practice unique. I’ve taken a break from private practice to care for my two young sons, but my mom, Julie, and husband, Phil, are still there, happily creating sparkling smiles, from our family to yours!
