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 Phan-tastic 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 Phan-tastic 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.
“I strive to become a better dentist every day to best care for my patient’s dental health,” he says.
Most recently, Dr. Phan began offering the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique to treat patients with gum recession, or the loss of gum tissue along the gum line. This can occur naturally through the aging process or due to abrasive teeth-brushing habits as well as from gingivitis and periodontitis. When gum recession is present, the root structure of the tooth is exposed, meaning tooth decay and other oral health issues can affect the teeth along the gum line and beneath it.
With the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique, Dr. Phan makes a small hole in the gum tissue then uses specially designed instruments to loosen and guide the gum tissue over the receded portion of the tooth and the exposed root structure. Since there are no grafts, incisions or sutures, patients can expect minimal discomfort and swelling following the procedure. They can also expect a quicker recovery time than traditional grafting as well as more natural looking, long-lasting results. Most patients also are pleasantly surprised by the instant cosmetic improvement.
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 Phan-tastic 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 Phan-tastic Smiles wants to welcome you to become part of their family.

“One of the best things I’ve ever done for my oral health is choosing to go to Dr. Phan. Not only does he provide the best dental care but he and his staff always make me feel like I’m home when I’m there. I’ve never in my life liked going to the dentist, but now I’m happy to say I no longer feel that way.” – Todd P.
