Crosstown Dental — Our Team
Dr. Philip Chang
Dr. Chang grew up in Regina, graduated from the University of Saskatchewan’s dentistry program, and in 1999 moved to Vancouver to practice dentistry full-time. He spent most of his career perfecting his dentistry and building on his specialties at English Bay Dental in the West End. In 2016 he opened Crosstown Dental Clinic.
Besides getting to know his patients, he enjoys esthetic dentistry, surgery, and implants. It's so rewarding to see a patient's before and after smile! He doesn’t enjoy root canals, but likes to get people out of pain as quickly as possible!
When he's not at the clinic, he is a dad, studies martial arts, and works as a stunt performer in the film industry.
Dr. Karen McQuail
Dr. McQuail is a highly-educated and awarded dentist who worked in a family practice in her native Ireland before finally settling in Vancouver, a city she's always loved. She enjoys getting to know her patients and staying on top of the latest innovations in dentistry. She has a calm, gentle demeanor and does well with patients who experience dental anxiety.
In her spare time she is an avid sportsman, and can be found playing field hockey, tennis, football (soccer) and handball. She also loves the dramatic arts and has studied with the London College of Music and Media.
Dr. McQuail is now accepting new patients.
