Dr. Grace Hwang, DMD
Dr. Grace Hwang has been treating patients in the Santa Clarita Valley and Los Angeles area for over 16 years. She enjoys helping patients restore, maintain and beautify their smiles with modern technology that blends comfort, form and function.
Originally from the East Coast (small town outside Atlantic City/South Jersey), she received her undergraduate degree in the Biological Basis of Behavior from the University of Pennsylvania in 1997, worked for a year in network news at ABC News covering medical and health stories, before obtaining her Doctorate in Dental Medicine at Tufts University in Boston in 2002. Soon after, she relocated to Los Angeles with her husband, Jeff, who grew up in the San Fernando Valley and has a CPA practice.
“Dr. Grace,” as her patients call her, was an Associate Dentist for 13 years, focusing on honing her clinical acumen and investing in quality dental continuing education, before opening her own dental practice. She completed training over ten years ago, in Advanced Fixed Prosthodontics and has completed many full mouth reconstruction cases (crowns and veneers for collapsed and severely worn teeth). She has been an Invisalign Premier Provider since 2004 and helped patients of all ages, from 15 to 75, straighten and close gaps between teeth to rebalance their smiles, improving bite, function, esthetics and quality of life. She is also a Six Month Smiles Provider which is an orthodontic system for adults, that utilizes clear brackets and clear wires to straighten teeth in about six months. She also restores and places Dental Implants. All treatment can be completed with Sedation and/or Nitrous Oxide for the most comfortable and anxiety-free dental visit.
When she is not seeing patients, she enjoys spending time with her family, hiking, yoga, baking desserts and indulging her own sweet tooth.
