Crosstown Dental — Our Team
Dr. Philip Chang
I grew up in Regina, graduated from the University of Saskatchewan’s dentistry program, and in 1999 I moved to Vancouver to practice dentistry full-time. I spent most of my career perfecting my dentistry and building on my specialties at English Bay Dental in the West End. In 2016 I opened Crosstown Dental Clinic.
Besides getting to know my patients, I especially enjoy esthetic dentistry, surgery, and implants. It's so rewarding to see a patient's before and after smile! I don’t enjoy root canals, but I do like being able to get people out of pain as quickly as possible!
When I'm not at the clinic, I get to be a dad, practice all kinds of martial arts, and work as a stunt performer in the film industry.
