Dr. Daniel Hwang (Dr. Dan) graduated from the prestigious Columbia University School of Dental Medicine in 1991. After operating a number of successful dental offices in New York City, he relocated to Saddlebrook Resort in Wesley Chapel 11 years ago to provide his three children with the very best tennis instruction.
Dr. Dan opened Pasco Dental eight years ago. Owing to the loyalty and referrals by his patients, he doubled his office space earlier this year. He now has 3,000 square feet of office and treatment space dedicated to the highest quality service for his patients.
Patients are not just a mouth full of teeth to Dr. Dan. He takes the time to get to know his patients in order to provide them with dental solutions that fit their lifestyle and expectations. In other words, he’s not going to try to talk anyone into something that isn’t affordable or necessary.
Dentistry is a family affair. His brother is a dentist in New Jersey. His eldest son will be attending dental school after he graduates next year.
“Dentistry is not just a job,” says Dr. Dan. “I’ve been practicing for 23 years and I’m still learning about new techniques, materials and equipment.” He’s very interested in advancing his knowledge and expertise in order to deliver the very best treatment to his patients.
He emigrated to the United States from Korea at the age of six. His wife is originally from Thailand. This multicultural perspective gives him a greater ability to accommodate patients from other nationalities. Rest assured, he speaks perfect English.
“My patients receive total care under one roof,” says Dr. Dan. “I’m the only dentist in this office. Every day I strive to reduce costs, time and pain for my patients. If they need a treatment that I can’t provide, then it’s likely no other dentist can either.”
One treatment he’s been receiving a lot of requests for is described as gummy smile correction, when a person’s smile reveals their gums. This is especially embarrassing for young females. A new non-invasive treatment, called the Lipstat procedure, takes about 45 minutes to correct this problem with minimal discomfort and downtime for the patient.
Another request he’s been taking care of regularly comes from senior citizens wearing dentures. Over time, the dentures become loose making it difficult to eat a variety of foods. Dr. Dan is able to provide dental implants that totally stabilize the dentures enabling the wearer to eat anything they
like without discomfort. The Consumer’s Research Council of America has recognized Dr. Dan as one of America’s top dentists from 2009 through 2014.
Dr. Dan provides all dental services, including deep cleaning and the latest braces, under one roof with state-of-the-art equipment and a dedicated, caring staff. His office is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Evening hours are available on Wednesday between noon and 7 p.m.
Pasco Dental is located at 29450 State Road 54 in Wesley Chapel. They can be reached at PascoDental.net, or at (813) 907-6600.
