Dr. Doan’s Treatment Philosophy
I became a dentist because I was very interested in the biological sciences and I liked the idea of working with my hands.
I enjoy the satisfaction of crafting beautiful and functional restorations. Not only do I enjoy helping patients look better, but also helping them feel and function better. This motivates me to come to work every day. I also enjoy the process of perfecting my skills and continually learning new things. The AACD accreditation process was instrumental in helping me develop my skill set.
I am very interested in the connection between aesthetics and function. I enjoy designing cases to achieve beautiful aesthetics that is functionally balanced and comfortable.
I am very excited about digital smile design. I have been doing it for several years now and it has revolutionized the way I design, perform and deliver my cases. It allows for much more interaction with my patients in the design process.
