Nil Yücel, DDS opened her own office in January 2002. Tracing the path that led her to dentistry, she recalls, "As a child I did lots of drawings. I had a thing for beauty and aesthetics. One day in a dentist's chair, I admired the person working and thought, 'I would be good as a dentist,' and it just stuck with me.

"Besides doing beautiful, quality work, I do welcome and like open communication.Patients know I care about how they feel that I want to help them move beyond their fear of dentistry. Almost all my patients end up falling asleep, without nitrous, during their treatment."

Outside the office, Dr. Yücel enjoys oil painting, and travel. She's married and has a beautiful daughter, Ela and a son Jonas.
