ABOUT CREO DENTISTRY
YOUR MARYSVILLE DENTIST
DR. DAN HWANG DMD
There is something so fulfilling about seeing someone’s self-confidence or dignity being restored because we helped them smile! It is a privilege to meet different people, hear their unique stories, and become a small part of their lives.
I come to the clinic each day counting my blessings because I have the most trustworthy and coolest team ever! My staff gives me reason to smile and laugh each morning as we go over every patient we will see that day. There is a long history of colleagues staying for years and hopefully that says something, not only about the work environment but about the ingrained culture to love and care for others generously.
EDUCATION AND CONTINUING EDUCATION
VANDERBILT UNIVERSITY – BA, PSYCHOLOGY, 1995
After earning my DMD, I spent three years with the US Air Force. I had the best time ever serving with America’s finest service members. I salute anyone who is both currently serving and have served in the armed forces. I’ve always been a believer that you’re a student for life. I believe dentistry has come a long way in terms of adding comfort and value to people; however, there is always room to grow and be better. I always keep my eyes and ears peeled to know how I can serve my patients better and with greater comfort and ease. Most recently, I’ve participated in continuing education coursework on dental implants and the latest in dental materials.

OUTSIDE THE OFFICE
My wife is a classical piano teacher. She loves to teach young children who are passionate about music. She demands excellence from her kids but the take away is a lifelong appreciation for the arts. She also cooks with reckless abandon as if there is no tomorrow. We both absolutely love going to farmer’s markets in whatever communities they pop up around the Sound. I love the idea of supporting local growers who are passionate about growing natural, sustainable, and honest food. I love a good hike or skiing depending on the season and then jamming on guitar or keyboards when it rains. The quest to find the near perfect espresso always makes me smile.
Lastly, I really believe in the youth who will be the next generation of movers and shakers. I feel privileged and blessed to hang with youth. There’s just something about their vigor, energy, and big dreams that is so inspiring!
If there’s a chance to go on a mission for a worthwhile cause, I’d love to be a part of it. If there is youth going abroad, I’m even more hyped on being part of it! I’ve participated in medical and dental missions in Mexico, China, and Mongolia. Being a part of these trips gives so much meaning to my life and shows me my greater purpose. Closer to home, I am involved with Medical Teams International mobile dental clinic vans, Union Gospel Mission dental clinic in Seattle, and am a youth group teacher at my church.
YOUR MARYSVILLE DENTAL TEAM
CINDY REGISTERED DENTAL ASSISTANT
I became a part of Creo Dentistry’s team as a dental assistant in 2006. I enjoy working with patients to help them feel comfortable in our office, to help relieve pain, and best of all, to improve smiles! Ours is a great team and we work well together to accomplish our goals and have fun, too.
I am a very happy mother and enjoy my baby boy, Griffin, so much. We are big Seahawks fans and I fill my extra time in the off season working in the garden and doing obstacle course runs.
KATHY REGISTERED DENTAL HYGIENIST
As a dental hygienist, I provide the therapy you need to keep your teeth for a lifetime. With more than 35 years of experience in dentistry, I understand the need to be gentle yet thorough. I love working with people and helping them to achieve good oral health and a beautiful smile. I also appreciate working with Dr. Hwang and our team because everyone is so caring and committed to providing excellent quality dentistry to each and every patient.
Outside the office, I enjoy spending time with my family camping, fishing, snow skiing, and traveling to Hawaii.
JANICE REGISTERED DENTAL ASSISTANT
I have been in the dental field for over 23 years and just love getting to know my patients. Making people feel comfortable while receiving top-notch care is my first priority. In my time off, I spend it with my husband of 24 years and our two beautiful children.
JANET OFFICE MANAGER
I feel truly blessed to have been welcomed by the wonderful Creo Dentistry family in October 2017. I have worked in the dental field since 1990, with combined years in general dentistry, periodontics and orthodontics. My goal is to always provide the highest quality service and care to each patient.
Growing up in the Mill Creek and South Everett areas, I relocated to the Stanwood-Camano Island area in 1996, where I met my husband Scott and together raised our daughter AnnMarie. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling, boating, snow-skiing, exercising and cheering on the Seattle Seahawks!
