Lisa Chang DDS

Where did you receive your degree?
University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine

In what year did you complete your schooling?
2015 and also completed General Practice Dental Residency in 2016 at Winthrop University Hospital. In addition, I have pursued continuing education, including courses on sedation, diode dental laser and Invisalign. I have also volunteered with local outreach programs and served on an international dental mission trip.

Why did you want to become a dentist?
From a very young age, I knew that the purpose of my career choice had to involve helping others. Science and health always peaked my interest and as a teenager, I volunteered in a variety of medical and health fields. Dentistry caught my eye, as it was the perfect combination of medicine, art, and creativity. It was amazing how a smile could be changed and  that it could impact someone’s life, happiness and confidence. For the last ten years, I have immersed myself in the dental field; first as an assistant, receptionist, dental student, dental resident and now dentist since 2015.  I am trained in all aspects of general dentistry, but esthetic dentistry is my favorite!

What do you enjoy doing for leisure?
Spending time with family and friends, fitness and home renovation.

List something unique about you
Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, but moved to Buffalo for dental school in 2011. Since then, I have been living in NY state and just got married in the summer of 2019 to a Buffalonian!

What our patients say:

“I can not say enough good things about this place. Everyone here was so compassionate. They helped me ease my anxiety. Helped me find a way to finance my procedure and talked to me through all of my procedures to ease any fears. All of the staff I had any kind of encounter with was always very cheerful and very helpful.” – Heather Manson
