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.
I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, playing lots of pickleball, and walking my dogs with my wife. I am also a proud member of the Sugar Hill Downtown Development Authority and enjoy being on a committee that serves my community.
Hi, I’m Dr. Ruby Truong, but you can call me Dr. Ruby. I’m originally from California, but I moved to Georgia with my family at a young age. I 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 her a beautiful smile, I knew right away this was the career for me.
My favorite part about being a dentist is being able to help people, whether it’s getting them out of pain, restoring their smiles, or simply helping them improve their overall health. I am driven every day by the ability to impact my patients’ lives in a positive and meaningful way.
When I’m outside office hours, you can spot me spending time with friends and family, taking classes, or exercising. I enjoy trying new things. I’ll try anything once, just so I can say “I’ve done it!”
