Guest Expert on Dental Marketing Secrets: Dr. Joyce Kahng, General Dentist in Costa Mesa, CA.

Dr. Joyce Kahng has built a dental practice that’s modern, spa-like, and patient-focused, where the emphasis is on painless, comfortable care that improves the patient’s life. She’s particularly focused on working with patients who have dental-related anxiety. Understanding that prior negative experiences can lead to a person avoiding care, and therefore needing intensive treatment to restore their oral health, Dr. Kahng advocates for a gradual approach at a pace where the patient is comfortable. By taking the time to build a relationship based on mutual trust, respect, and open communication, she ensures a patient is able to relax and know they are safe during their visits.

She invests in modern dental technology to create a syringe-less dental environment, utilizing a Computer-Assisted Anesthesia System. With advanced technical expertise, she provides a metal-free facility, including proper removal and isolation of silver fillings.

Dr. Kahng is also Faculty and serves as an Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of Southern California Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry. She is passionate about mentoring future dentists and was awarded as 2018’s Outstanding Faculty. She also works on the Admissions Committee to select the best candidates to gain admission into this prestigious school. By working in academia, she can naturally stay 2 steps ahead of all the advances that dentistry has to offer.

Guest Expert on Dental Marketing Secrets: Dr. Sonia Chopra, Endodontist

Dr. Sonia Chopra is a practicing endodontist in Charlotte, North Carolina.

She made it her mission to help dentists improve their confidence with endodontics and enhance their patients’ experience.

Dr. Chopra is the Founder of Sonia Chopra, DDS and E-School, an endodontic-focused community for dentists seeking to perfect their skills, improve their practice and elevate their patient care. Sonia was born without eight teeth and is no stranger to cavities, implants, and bridges. She always knew she was meant to become a dentist. It was like she was born to help people and with her own dental troubles ripe in her memory, it was easy to put herself in the patient’s chair and understand exactly how her patients felt.

But it wasn’t until an endodontist finally relieved Sonia of a months-long infection through a root canal that she understood the importance of saving teeth. Dr. Sonia firmly believes that the power to keep your patients healthy and happy — and out of such agony — lies within you and your commitment to deepening your understanding of endodontics.
