Fifteen years ago, Dr. Cuong T. Phan took over a dental practice on Lake Underhill Road. Ready to put his knowledge to use, he re-named it Phantastic Smiles then began to serve existing patients and work with staff members from the previous practice.
“Our team is honored to treat some families for three generations,” says Wendy Phan, Dr. Phan’s wife and the practice’s business administrator. “We are thankful for the loyalty our patients have to our practice. At Phantastic Smiles every patient is treated like family.”
Get to Know Dr. Phan
Dr. Phan has been practicing for over 18 years and performed multiple procedures in one visit by using the latest, state-of-the-art dental equipment, such as the CEREC. This high-tech tool uses 3D photography and cutting-edge software to prepare, create and help place a permanent crown in just one visit. Porcelain veneers, Laser fillings, ZOOM whitening, implants, root canals, Laser gum therapy, oral surgery, dentures and complex full-mouth restorations are all done in-house by Dr. Phan. Saving time is one of many reasons patients love going to Dr. Phan.
He is humbled to be the recipient of the prestigious Mastership Award, the highest Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) honor available and one of the most respected designations within the dental profession. Less than 1% of general dentists throughout the U.S. and Canada have earned this title (MAGD). To attain mastership, AGD member dentists must successfully complete 1,100 approved continuing education credits — 400 of those hours in participation courses where skills are learned through the manipulation of dental materials — and pass a rigorous, comprehensive exam.
“Dr. Phan amazes me every day with his education and the techniques that he uses,” says Dana Meyer, Dr. Phan’s dental assistant, who has 30 years of experience in the field. “The way he treats his patients is above and beyond.”
The Best Dental Care
Dr. Phan says his patients inspire him every day. That is why he is always learning new methods to help them achieve their desired results. From offering one-visit crowns through CEREC to Waterlase Laser Dentistry for the treatment of periodontal disease, Dr. Phan provides only the best treatment options. 8 Central Florida Lifestyle | August 2017 “I strive to become a better dentist every day to best care for my patient’s dental health,” he says.
Become Part of the Family
One of many reasons that the staff and patients remain dedicated to the practice is that the family atmosphere extends beyond the doctor-patient relationship. The Phantastic team takes pride in building long-lasting relationships with their patients. Each patient is treated with respect and individual care.
Dental hygienist Victoria Kiniry, who has been with the practice since before Dr. Phan came on board, enjoys being able to be there for her patients in that way. “I love the relationships that I have built with my patients over the past 20 years,” she says. “Dr. Phan, Wendy and the rest of the team are my second family!”
With so much to offer the community they serve, the team at Phantastic Smiles wants to welcome you to become part of their family.
