Dr. Crystal Chang, DDS
Dr. Chang focuses on combining modern dentistry techniques to empower her patients to reach their full oral health potential. She thrives on creating a comfortable and gentle experience for her patient.
Dr. Chang grew up in Massachusetts and received her Bachelor of Arts from Harvard University. She chose to pursue dentistry because of her close relationship with her own family dentist. She received her doctoral degree from the University of California, San Francisco and was inducted into the national dental honor society Omicron Kappa Upsilon. She was awarded the Dental Alumni Association’s notable Clinical Excellence Scholarship. Dr. Chang then spent an additional year in advanced hospital dentistry training at Veterans Affairs, Palo Alto. She constantly challenges herself with continuing education courses and journal clubs in order to provide the best care for her patients.
Dr. Chang serves as a Clinical Instructor working with dental residents and medically complex patients at Stanford Medical Center. Dr. Chang is an active member of the California Dental Association and Mid-Peninsula Dental Society. She is certified in Basic Life Support and Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support by the American Heart Association.
Kindness was a big part of growing up for Dr. Chang and she wishes to share that kindness in her practice of dentistry. Since moving from the East Coast in 2011, she has developed an “allergy” to East Coast winters and is staying in the Bay Area. Dr. Chang is an avid dancer and particularly enjoys traditional folk dance as well as Horton technique. On the weekends, she can be found either spending time with her two nephews, going on hikes, reading a good book in the sun or trying out new local restaurants.
