Meet Daniel Sok Woong Han, DMD Your Double Board-Certified Periodontist and Prosthodontist

How Dr. Han Stands Out

A Range of Care

Dr. Daniel Sok Woong Han provides patients with cosmetic and restorative care to help them transform the appearance and functionality of their smiles. He's one of the only doctors on the East Coast who is double board certified in periodontics and prosthodontics and can use both to provide patients with well-rounded treatment.

Commitment to Education

In addition to his post-doctoral specialty training, Dr. Han went through a rigorous process to become a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology. This membership requires applicants to take a written and oral exam, and maintain their status by completing yearly testing and continuing education courses.

Shaping the Next Generation

As a clinical assistant professor, Dr. Han continues to give lectures and be active in clinical research. He teaches periodontics, implant surgery, and fixed prosthodontics to post-doctoral residents in the Department of Periodontics & Periodontal Prosthesis at the University of Pennsylvania. He has even presented his research findings on the subject of effective methods of implant placements and bone grafting at the International Association of Dental Research. Currently, he is studying the most effective methods for sinus augmentation, using the most up-to-date techniques and instruments.

Dr. Han is an excellent dentist , especially for my particular problem, which requires implants. He has solved several tricky problems, and my teeth are in much better shape. Also, he and everybody in the office are really friendly and do everything they can to make the patient feel comfortable.

I had a gum graft with Dr. Han one week ago. He did a beautiful job. Having had a childhood dental trauma, I am very particular to find dentists who are top notch and very considerate of their patients. I am very confident in Dr Han's skills and artistry in keeping my teeth healthy and beautiful!
