Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?
Ever since he was a kid, Dr. Duong’s parents have encouraged him to go into the healthcare field, and he was intrigued by the sciences as well from a young age. When it came to college, he naturally gravitated towards a major that involved these two topics. After volunteering in various medical fields, he eventually realized that he would really enjoy the hands-on nature of dentistry, as well as getting to interact with patients daily. After all these years, and partnering with Dr. Kuan for over 10 of them, he’s never regretted that decision for a moment!
Where Did You Study Dentistry?
After completing his undergraduate degree at the University of California Irvine, Dr. Duong pursued his doctorate at the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco. Over the course of his career, he has also completed various continuing education courses in a wide variety of topics, including pediatric dentistry, endodontics, oral surgery, and cosmetic dentistry.
Outside of the Dental Office, What Do You Like to Do?
Dr. Duong’s parents currently live in Orange County, CA, and he tries his best to visit them as often as possible. He also has two brothers in Minnesota; one is a pilot for Delta and the other manages a grocery store chain. Outside of working hours, his favorite hobbies include reading, cooking, traveling, and anything to do with Motorsports racing. He also has a natural passion for learning about anything and everything!
