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.”

We Believe in Your Smile!

Hello Again Smile Centre Family,

Many of you have reached out to us and we are happy to report that we are all doing well. Many of our team members are still working hard at homeschooling their children... with varying degrees of success. Others are just trying to keep the kiddos from tearing the house apart, LOL. The rest of us have been using this time to catch up on projects we have all been meaning to get to, but somehow have not found the time.

We wanted to let everyone know that between the homeschooling and the home renos and projects, we have not forgotten about the Smile Centres. Many of our team members have been working hard behind the scenes with our Doctors to explore new ways that we can continue to provide excellent care while adhering to new guidelines to keep you and your family safe. While we love to focus on Dentistry, the safety and wellbeing of our teams and patients is our top priority.

We are using this time to:

  • Invest in new technology to ensure the safest environment possible
    • Enhanced PPE​ for our teams
    • Air filtration systems to remove harmful aerosols
    • Plexiglass barriers to protect you and our team
    • Advanced health screening
  • Learn new dental techniques and protocols
    • Many of our team members have been participating in online courses
  • Upgrade our websites to make it easier to share information
    • Digital office forms that can be completed prior to your office visit
    • Adding ​ ​virtual consultations​ ​ to limit office visits
    • Paperless insurance claims and payments
    • Simple financing options
  • Working on “ideal scheduling” to enable more efficient patient appointments
    • Zero wait time​ ​ appointments
    • Limiting the number of patients and staff in the clinic
    • Pre-appointment digital Q&A available
  • Adding new digital scanners to increase our ability to offer ​same day services​ such as crowns, bridges, nightguards, and even dental implants

We are also developing a ​ ​SMILE CENTRE app​ ​ that will be exclusively available to Smile Centre clients with some really cool features.


As you know, at this time, ​ all ​ elective procedures - including general dentistry and hygiene appointments - are still being suspended for at least the next few weeks. ​ If you have an appointment prior to May 18, you can consider it cancelled. ​ Our team is trying hard to reach out to everyone and as we know more, we will begin to reschedule appointments. At this time, we are not rescheduling surgery appointments or regular dental appointments until we have a better grip on when things will be returning to “normal”. We are hoping to see you soon!

We look forward to seeing you back at the Smile Centre once we’re able to open our doors again. We will be adding extra time to accommodate the need that has been created by this unforeseeninterruption; don’t worry! Your health is important to us and we will work overtime to ensure all our patients are accommodated.


Under the guidelines from the Ministry of Health and RCDSO, we must screen carefully and minimize patient contact, ​ but we are accommodating emergency patients on a case-by-case basis. ​ If you have a dental emergency, or think you may be experiencing symptoms that could become urgent, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We are monitoring messages regularly; the easiest way to reach any of our clinic locations is via text message.


We know that you may have some questions for us! We are in the process of organizing a virtual Q & A for all of our patients. We are getting some of our Dentists and team members together in a virtual forum to address any concerns and share some exciting new changes that we are making in all of our Smile Centres. ​ Look for our invitation in your email to join us for this event (coming soon!).


We are all in this together. We will come away from this situation stronger and more appreciative than ever of the tiny conveniences that we all take for granted every day. Perhaps more family togetherness will become the new normal; maybe this will all be a lesson in taking a step back and appreciating the things we have around us.
