DR JASON HWANG
Dr. Jason Hwang is a dual Board Certified Dentist in Canada and the US. His pursuit of comfort dentistry began with his own experience as an anxious patient in the waiting room. “I remember nervously waiting for the doctor in pain and wondering where the strange dental office smell was coming from.” Since then, he developed an interest in dentistry and wanted to pursue his career to redefine the doctor-patient relationship by ensuring confidence, patience, and comprehensive care for all his patients.
In his training in urban Detroit at the University of Detroit Mercy, he encountered the worst cases of tooth loss from trauma, severe periodontal disease, and rampant decay that is avoidable with early care. Treating such cases first hand made him hold a strong emphasis on prevention. “You can eat your greens and exercise daily to avoid heart diseases. In the same way, routine dental visits and cleanings are necessary to avoid losing your smile. It is all part of healthy living.”
He understands what it is like being a new patient and will treat you and your family with care. Dr. Hwang practices full spectrum dentistry that covers routine dentistry including fillings, hygiene, and root canals, orthodontics with Invisalign, implant surgery, and cosmetics. “Acquiring surgical hand skills is a lifelong process even after dental school. I strive constantly to fine tune my skillsets for my patient’s benefit. I am attracted by the ability to enhance a patient’s smile because a healthy smile brings joy to not only themselves, but to everyone around them.”Receive Free consultation
