If you have scheduled an appointment at Dulce Dental, he can’t wait to meet you! Read below to learn more about his education and his overall background.
Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?
In Dr. Kuan’s family, dentistry is something of a tradition. His grandfather started a dental office that his father eventually took over, and he even spent time working there during college and for a while after graduation. While at college, Dr. Kuan eventually made the switch to studying biology when he realized how much he loves science, and dentistry felt like the natural extension of that love. He’s been happy with his decision for well over a decade and looks forward to continuing in the dental field for many years to come.
Where Did You Study Dentistry?
Dr. Kuan earned his undergraduate degree at San Jose State. He then went to the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco, where he obtained his doctorate and completed the country’s only three-year dental program. He continues to attend educational courses in a variety of fields so that he can continue developing and honing his skills in different ways. Some of his favorite topics include creating fillings and dental crowns that blend seamlessly in with the smile as well as tooth extraction methods.
Outside of the Dental Office, What Do You Like to Do?
Dr. Kuan has two younger sisters. One is a chiropractor and the other teaches high school. He currently lives in Dallas with his lovely wife Diana and their Australian Shepard/Border Collie mix Gracie. In addition to spending time with his family, Dr. Kuan likes to spend his free time cooking delicious foods, eating meals with the people he loves, and listening to all kinds of music. Whenever he has the chance, he likes to check out the newest bands in live venues.
