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.”

The Barrie Smile Centre is the best dental office I've ever been to. The staff is very friendly,professional and knowledgeable. They take away any anxiety and fear of going for a procedure. I highly recommend them!
Very clean, professional and friendly! They have done lots of work for me including 2 implants. I highly recommend them!
Very clean, professional and helpful. 2 other dentists previously tried to fix my composite veneer and both times it look awful and/or was the wrong colour. One trip here and everything was fixed!
Very friendly, helpful staff. Makes you feel welcome as soon as you enter. I needed a tooth removed and got in the same day I called. When I arrived I didn’t have to wait. I have numerous problem with my teeth and they came up with a solution. Thank you all so much.
Just got home from the Smile Centre and I'm thrilled with my results. Had Zoom whitening, and it was better than I expected. The attendant took the time to explain everything super thoroughly. She warned I may have sensitivity but so far so good. I wish I did it ages ago.
The first thing I noticed upon entering the building was the beautiful design plan and lovely staff. I was greeted at the door and made comfortable throughout my entire experience. Everything was explained to me in detail and the staff always made sure I fully understood. This is an amazing office and I would 10/10 recommend it!!

Every time I go to the Smile Centre in Barrie it’s an amazing experience! Everyone from the admin staff to the dentists are so helpful.
