About Dr. Joyce Kahng

Dr. Joyce Kahng

Owner Dr. Joyce Kahng delivers dental excellence to each patient in her care, focusing on the patient’s individual needs and goals. Along with her team, Dr. Kahng understands that the best patient experience, and the strongest treatment outcome, comes from personalized care. That’s why she spends time getting to know each patient as an individual, to learn about their overall health, as well as their hobbies and lifestyle, which allows her to customize her smile makeovers with the ultimate goal to help the patient smile with confidence.

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.

Dr. Kahng has been practicing Cosmetic Dentistry for over a decade and her office was designed to deliver an incredibly unique experience for a patient with a minimally invasive approach. She values the privacy of each patient and has a limited amount of foot traffic in the office on the days of her procedures. This ensures that a patient feels comfortable and taken care of.

Orange + Magnolia Dental Studio remains on the cutting edge of technology with Digital Scanning for “Goop-less” impressions paired with the SprintRay 3D printer and Digital X-rays. She provides wellness cans as part of the patient experience to closely monitor any changes in the mouth so they can be addressed before they become problems that require more extensive treatment. Her office is also known for creating 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.
