Hi, I’m Dr. Jonathan Chang. As a child, I had some issues with my teeth and needed braces for six years. I never minded going to my dentist, but it was much later in life that I decided to pursue dentistry as a profession. I came from a family of physicians and knew that I was destined to be a doctor someday. It wasn’t until I was sitting in a dental chair myself for a routine checkup that I heard “Dr. K will be with you in a moment,” and it occurred to me that dentists were doctors too! I love the interaction and relationships that come with being a dentist. Having the ability to calm someone’s nerves, decrease their anxiety, and allow them to enjoy the process is an incredible feeling.
In dental school, I was assigned a patient who was in a bad accident and the prescribed pain killers completely destroyed her teeth. She volunteered as a patient at the school because she had been shamed by other dentists and was embarrassed. Over the years of working on her, we became close friends, and I was able to restore her smile back to health. We built a personal connection and needless to say, the experience put my life into perspective. Throughout my career, I’ve made it my mission to get to know my patients so that they can trust in the care I provide to them.
When I’m not in practice, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, playing basketball or tennis, or walking my dogs with my wife. You may occasionally spot us at a Disney resort, as we’re both such big kids at heart!
Hi, I’m Dr. Ruby Truong, but you can call me Dr. Ruby. It was my mom who suggested I become a dentist. I’ve always wanted a career that would allow me to use my love of science to help people. As a former nail technician, I found that transitioning into dentistry was easy, as I was used to working on small artistic details and building trusting relationships with people. When I had the opportunity to shadow a dentist in practice who brought a patient to tears by giving them a beautiful smile, I knew right away this was the career for me. I am driven every day by the ability to impact my patients lives in such a positive and meaningful way.
It’s always been my mission to educate my patients about the connections between their daily habits and their oral health. Not too long ago, a woman in her forties came in for a cleaning. This was a woman who had never learned how to brush her teeth and had gone so long that several teeth would need to be removed. After a thorough cleaning, we were able to talk about the causes and contributing factors. I could see a major shift in the way she carried herself when her mouth felt clean and she knew what actions she needed to take. Because I was able to educate her and make her feel less ashamed, she was able to get started on a path to better health.
When I’m outside office hours, you can spot me spending time with friends and family or working out at the gym. I love exploring the world and trying new things. I try everything once, just so I can say “I’ve done it!”
Kristin is Sweet City Smiles’ office manager and yes, Dr. Chang’s wife! After listening to Dr. Chang talk about teeth for their entire relationship, she decided to join in the fun and put her office management experience to use at Sweet City Smiles. Her favorite part of being an office manager is building relationships with patients. She believes that serving and supporting others is her greatest purpose, and strives to make every patient feel welcome, supported, and respected.
Kristin grew up in Lawrenceville, Georgia by way of Louisiana, New Hampshire, and Colorado. She has two degrees from the University of Georgia and a graduate certificate from Georgia State University. Fun fact: Kristin and Dr. Chang went to the same high school and the same college but never met until after they both graduated! In her spare time, Kristin enjoys reading, volunteering, and moonlighting as a Disney travel agent.
Judy is Sweet City Smiles’ dental assistant and has been with our team from the very beginning! She was born and raised in Bogota, Colombia, and now lives in Sugar Hill with her two wonderful children Julie and Leandro. She is very outgoing and always carries a smile on her face. She enjoys working out in her free time and loves cheering on her two kids in everything they do.
Judy’s interest in dentistry came from her sister, who is also a dental assistant. She loves caring for patients and has also been a tremendous help as a Spanish interpreter when the need arises. Plus, she’s helping the team improve their “Español” as well! Judy’s connection with our patients and her incredible work ethic make her a tremendous asset to our team.
Amira is Sweet City Smiles’ dental assistant. Since she was little, she always loved going to the dentist. Despite being new to dentistry, her favorite part is being able to build relationships with patients, and the fast-paced environment where she always learns something new!
Amira recently graduated from Georgia State University with a bachelors degree in biology. Amira was born in Switzerland, but both of her parents are from Bosnia and Herzegovina. She loves to spend time being in the sun and playing board games with her family!
Julie is Sweet City Smiles’ patient coordinator! She was born and raised in Georgia and is always up for a challenge. She recently graduated from Georgia State University, and was pleasantly surprised that she would end up working at a family dental practice. Fun fact, Julie is actually the daughter of one of our dental assistants, Judy! After hearing her mom talk about her experience with our team, Julie decided it would be a great opportunity to hop on board and pitch in as much as she could. Her favorite part is being able to talk with patients and getting to know them, because she wants every patient to feel comfortable and enjoy their experience here.
During her free time, Julie enjoys binge watching Netflix, but also loves to stay active. After a busy day at the office, you will still see Julie at the gym lifting weights and making sure she gets those steps in!
