Meet Dr. Daniel Hwang

There is something so fulfilling about seeing someone’s self-confidence or dignity being restored because we helped them smile! It is a privilege to meet different people, hear their unique stories, and become a small part of their lives. 

I come to the clinic each day counting my blessings because I have the most trustworthy and coolest team ever! My staff gives me reason to smile and laugh each morning as we go over every patient we will see that day. There is a long history of colleagues staying for years and hopefully that says something, not only about the work environment but about the ingrained culture to love and care for others generously.

Education and Continuing Education

  • University of Pennsylvania – Doctorate of Dental Medicine, 2002
  • Vanderbilt University – BA, Psychology, 1995

After earning my DMD, I spent three years with the US Air Force. I had the best time ever serving with America’s finest service members. I salute anyone who is both currently serving and have served in the armed forces.  

I’ve always been a believer that you’re a student for life. I believe dentistry has come a long way in terms of adding comfort and value to people; however, there is always room to grow and be better. I always keep my eyes and ears peeled to know how I can serve my patients better and with greater comfort and ease. Most recently, I’ve participated in continuing education coursework on dental implants and the latest in dental materials.

Outside the Office

My wife is a classical piano teacher. She loves to teach young children who are passionate about music. She demands excellence from her kids but the take away is a lifelong appreciation for the arts. She also cooks with reckless abandon as if there is no tomorrow. We both absolutely love going to farmer’s markets in whatever communities they pop up around the Sound. I love the idea of supporting local growers who are passionate about growing natural, sustainable, and honest food. I love a good hike or skiing depending on the season and then jamming on guitar or keyboards when it rains. The quest to find the near perfect espresso always makes me smile. 

Lastly, I really believe in the youth who will be the next generation of movers and shakers. I feel privileged and blessed to hang with youth. There’s just something about their vigor, energy, and big dreams that is so inspiring!

If there’s a chance to go on a mission for a worthwhile cause, I’d love to be a part of it. If there is youth going abroad, I’m even more hyped on being part of it! I’ve participated in medical and dental missions in Mexico, China, and Mongolia. Being a part of these trips gives so much meaning to my life and shows me my greater purpose. Closer to home, I am involved with Medical Teams International mobile dental clinic vans, Union Gospel Mission dental clinic in Seattle, and am a youth group teacher at my church. 

"I would do it all over again!"

Professional, caring, quality, friendly and fun. Those are the words that come to mind when I think of Creo Dentistry and their staff. The Care I have been given is great and the outcome of what we had done with my teeth and my husband's brings us compliments often. But more importantly is the care that has been given to my elderly mother and my brother who is disabled with MS and in a wheelchair.

In a recent visit for my brother, having anticipated his needs, the staff had the x-ray area all set to accommodate his wheelchair so my brother did not have to be transferred unnecessarily. They remembered it was his birthday and gave him big smiles and birthday wishes. He received awesome care and loved his visit and his shiny clean teeth. My elderly mother has received the utmost care and respect as well. I am forever grateful for the treatment my family and I have received. I recommend Creo Dentistry and their team to anyone for comprehensive, excellent service.

Last summer I had a problem with a tooth. I went to see Creo Dentistry and they told me what my options were. I decided my best one was a dental implant. I expected it to be a painful procedure, however I didn't experience any pain during the procedure nor anytime afterwards. I feel Dr. Hwang is an outstanding dentist and Marysville is very fortunate to have him. I'm really pleased with my front tooth implant and no one can tell which tooth is my implant!

A co-worker recommended Creo Dentistry; He'd been going to them for years. I am glad I took his recommendation. I talked to Dr.Hwang about an implant; he described options and what his methods are. He is very skilled and keeps up with the latest procedures and tools. I appreciate Dr. Hwang's professionalism and care. If you want your dental work done right, go to Creo Dentistry!

Just a quick note to let you know about my new dentist. I was driving down Grand River one day and saw his sign which included the word "implants" so I decided to give him a try. I have had several visits now and each time Dr. Thomas and his staff have commented on what an excellent job you did on my implants! The last time I was there, Dr. Thomas stated "that in all his 30 years as a dentist and all the training and teaching about implants, he has never seen any that looked as great as mine". SOoooooooooooooooo… I thought you should hear about it.

"I would do it all over again!"

What a wonderful gift to give someone when you let them know they have options. Before I visited Creo Dentistry, I had never been told I had options on how to correct my dental problems.

For years I wore an appliance called a bite plate. Every few years it had to be replaced because of wear and the fact that it became loose due to taking it in and out every night. It would also pop up whenever I ate certain foods, and I had given up the thought of ever chewing gum. It was not worth the embarrassment of having my bite plate stick to the gum and become loose in my mouth. Now I can eat anything and even chew bubble gum. What a miracle to have “normal” teeth and to smile with unrestrained joy! My new smile muscles are becoming stronger and stronger each day.

Dr. Hwang, many thanks to you and all your wonderful staff who have made my transition such a great experience. Thanks so much!

After many visits to area dentists I have finally found the best for my care. I am an extreme dental phobic avoiding regular dental care because of this. Creo Dentistry and staff are professional and very caring to their patients. The most important thing for me was that Dr. Hwang offered oral sedation. All it took was one tablet, 1 hour prior to my procedures and I was totally relaxed and unafraid. I was awake in time to leave the office with my husband. Because of his gentle care I would not hesitate to return for future care. For all you fraidy cats like myself, there is hope for your dental care. Call Creo Dentistry’s office for an appointment with no fear. And my teeth look great now!

"I would do it all over again!"

My Mom first came to Creo Dentistry in January of this year due to the discomfort caused by decay of her lower teeth. Our family was very concerned about the procedure because she had suffered a severe stroke and was taking Plavix and other medications. She had to have the remainder of her bottom teeth pulled and the staff was wonderful about walking us through the procedure and the options for replacement. My mom did very well through the whole procedure and on more than one occasion she talked about how nice Dr. Hwang and the staff are. Creo Dentistry are so caring and show great professionalism. My mom’s implants look fabulous (a true work of art), and I loved seeing the joy and pride they take in their work. I can never thank Dr. Hwang enough for what he did for my mom. He and his staff truly changed her quality of life.

Creo Dentistry performed my first tooth implant surgery. Dr. Hwang and the entire staff were very thorough in explaining all the details beforehand so that I felt completely comfortable going in for the surgery. I was pleased at how smoothly the whole process went, and I’m very happy with my new tooth. It seems so much like my real teeth that I don’t even think about it anymore. Thank you Creo Dentistry!

I have always had a fear of going to the dentist. During this last year I had treatment, including an implant procedure. My experience of going to the dentist has been very positive, as the final results have been wonderful. Dr. Hwang and his entire staff have been very professional, yet caring and compassionate. I am no longer afraid of going to the dentist.

When I moved to Washington from Oregon in 2000, I was concerned about finding a new dentist for my family. I asked at my new Job at the American Cancer Society if anyone had a great dentist for my kids. Luckily, someone recommended Creo Dentistry and they took care of my kids and me with diligent attention to prevention and repair. As I age he has moved along to installing implants as needed and additional prevention advice for aging teeth. I am grateful for the staff person that has long left my work for the secret of my dentist. My implant you see was in the front of my mouth and very important for it to appear natural. His staff’s conscientious attention to working around a busy family and work schedule has been a blessing. Letting me email in my appointments and texting to remind me of them. So, as I pass along resources to cancer patients in my job, I am sharing my dentist resource to you! I can’t help it I love to help people....hmm must be why I was drawn to Creo Dentistry. Still smiling with my implanted front tooth!

"I would do it all over again!"

It might have been 30 years ago I walked into Creo Dentistry in Marysville needing a dentist to look after my teeth. None of my grandparents kept their teeth into their old age, so I needed preventive as well as reconstructive care. Thru office cleanings and instructional home care, cavities were minimized. With a rigorous periodontal program, gum levels are still acceptable. When cavities did invade under crowns and 2 teeth could not be saved, implants were the answer; bulletproof mechanical teeth permanently mounted on pegs fused into the jaw bone. The implants were accomplished with no pain and no regrets. Dr. Hwang has a staff of personable professional dental folk that let you feel comfortable with each office visit. Best of all, I have my teeth!
