Dr. Jihwan Park
Dr. Park grew up in Sherwood Park before moving to Ontario to complete his undergraduate studies in Bachelor of Medical Sciences Specializing in Microbiology and Immunology. He worked for the government at the Ottawa Research and Development Centre for the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada in Ottawa for two years. After, he has completed his Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of Alberta. He believes in patient-centered care ensuring the best treatments and plans personalized to your needs. He is passionate working with infants, children and teenagers, taking the time developing trust essential between him and the younger patients.
His main interest is in promoting access to care, oral health and preventative dental care to the youth. As a part of this belief, Dr. Park was actively involved in the SHINE Dentistry, a student-led organization providing dental and dental hygiene care for children and underserved communities of Edmonton. He also participated with Kindness In Action bringing dental care and education to Chisec, Guatemala. He is looking forward to volunteering to bring dental care to the youth both locally and globally.
“I love chatting with my patients and taking time to get to know them as much as I enjoy practicing dentistry. My goal is not to treat the cavities but to treat the patient based on their personal needs. I am also very passionate about working with infants and children.
To me, coming to the dental office should be just like going to see the family doctor – it should be a place of safety and trust. I understand building that level of relationship takes time, especially with the younger patients. I will strive to provide you, and the ones you care for, the time, effort and best treatments necessary to develop that faith. I will be honest with you with any questions you have, so feel free to ask away!”
