Dr. Cuong T. Phan of Phan-tastic Smiles is 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. He has been practicing dentistry for over 16 years. Dr. Phan, who is humbled to be distinguished by the AGD, says it was his patients that inspired him to work toward his goal. “I strive to become a better dentist every day to best care for my patient’s dental health.”
It’s this dedication that makes Dr. Phan the dentist of choice for so many Florida residents.
Since his patients are top priority, Dr. Phan is always learning the newest methods that help him achieve their desired results. That’s why he recently introduced a new laser technique called WaterLase Dentistry to Phan-Tastic Smiles that offers patients more comfort, more convenience and a gentler experience overall.
WaterLase dentistry uses a patented technology that combines focused light energy with a stream of water, which results in a highly precise and gentle dental experience. This technique can be used for treating a wide range of dental issues, including cavities, mouth sores, periodontal disease and gum recession. It’s even safe to use on the youngest members of your family.
Dr. Phan uses the WaterLase technology during the many of the procedures he performs to help improve your smile. When it comes to removing tooth decay, WaterLase offers more precision, allowing Dr. Phan to save more of the healthy part of the natural tooth. This helps patients avoid the need for dentures and implants in the future.
Many procedures that are performed using WaterLase dentistry require little or no anesthetic because the laser’s light and gentle spray of water don’t typically cause discomfort in patients. Laser treatment also causes less bleeding than conventional treatments that use a drill, scalpel and anesthetic. Since there is much less trauma to the teeth and gums, the affected area of your mouth will heal much quicker.
At Phan-tastic Smiles, patients don’t have to spend their time coming and going to multiple dental appointments. That’s because Dr. Phan can do many procedures in one visit. Using the latest technology, Dr. Phan restores or creates your beautiful smile in a shorter amount of time. Using state-of-the-art dental equipment, such as the CEREC, helps him to achieve this. This high-tech tool uses 3D photography and cutting edge software to prepare, create and help place a permanent crown in just one visit. Saving time is one of the reasons to many patients love going to Dr. Phan.
“Dr. Phan is undoubtedly the best dentist I’ve ever been to,” says patient Carl Osterberg. “He and his staff have always been very friendly and professional. Not only have I had root canals and crowns done in one visit but at no time did I ever experience any discomfort during these procedures.”
Porcelain veneers, white fillings, Invisalign, gum treatment, implants, root canals, oral surgery, dentures, routine exams and even complex full-mouth restorations are all done in-house by Dr. Phan. “From routine check-ups to smile makeovers, we do it all,” Dr. Phan says. “This saves patients valuable time.”
Where Comfort is King
Dr. Phan says he knows people sometimes avoid going to the dentist for many years due to unpleasant past experiences, but he takes the time to thoroughly explain their dental needs and keep them comfortable. Compassion, education and skills are what make Dr. Phan the caring dentist he is. At Phan-tastic Smiles, oral sedation and nitrous oxide are also available.
A Family Practice
“Our team is very honored to have been treating some families for three generations,” says Wendy Phan, Dr. Phan’s wife and the practice’s business manager. “We are very thankful for the loyalty our patients have to our practice. At Phan-tastic Smiles every patient is treated like family.”
Patients travel from across Central Florida, and even across the state, to be a part of the Phan-tastic Smiles family. Patient Ben Q. of Winter Garden has visited Dr. Phan for porcelain veneers, white fillings, oral surgery, gum treatments and routine check-ups. “There is no comparison to the patient care that I receive here,” he says. “Dr. Phan is gentle, patient and caring. He takes his time to deliver quality care. I recommend him to all my friends and family.”
With accolades like these, a prestigious award and the ability to offer one-visit multiple procedure appointments, it’s no wonder so many patients have stayed with his practice for many years and why so many new patients are making Phan-tastic Smiles their home for dental care.

Dr. Phan’s award did not come easily. To attain mastership, AGD member dentists must successfully complete 1,100 approved continuing education credits. In addition, 400 of the required credits must be in participation courses, where skills are learned through manipulations of dental materials. Also, Dr. Phan had to pass a rigorous, comprehensive examination. Dr. Phan’s experience in all areas of dentistry including endodontics, periodontics, crowns, oral surgery, implants as well as general and cosmetic dentistry translated to exceptional dental care for his patients.
In the AGD’s 60-plus-year history, only approximately 2,950 members have been awarded Mastership. The AGD’s Mastership is indeed a prestigious award that Dr. Phan is honored to have earned. Currently, Dr. Phan serves as a Florida Dental Examiner for The Commission on Dental Competency Assessments.
