In the ensuing decades, fueled by Hyo’s passion and enduring commitment to continuing education and comprehensive dentistry, Aurum has established an extensive continental footprint as a diversified dental company with over 450 employees and industry-wide recognition as a leader in each of its dental specialties. His three children have joined Hyo and his loyal team to help carry on and build his legacy.
