Dr. Quinn Chan, DMD, MS, CAGS
Prosthodontist and Restorative Specialist
Meet Dr. Quinn Chan representing MyCDMR is a Prosthodontist and Restorative Specialist who works with patients that have problems ranging from deterioration of single teeth to the full mouth. After over a decade of specializing in Prosthodontics, Dr. Chan has come to recognize the comprehensive extent of harm and injury that some patients' mouths experience over a lifetime of repetitive trauma, and the complex nature of treating and restoring these patients to a healthy occlusion and esthetics where the teeth come together and function harmoniously. With his background in engineering, Dr. Chan has a unique understanding and ability to integrate technology with his treatment planning and therapy, which he uses to enrich patients' experiences and enhance accuracy and predictability of treatment. His perceptual ability, technological expertise in synergy with his extensive knowledge in dental medicine is a unique quality that differentiates him from many clinicians. As a team of over a decade with CDMR's Periodontist, Dr. Oh, he understands the intricacies of merging their specialized talents to maximize treatment outcomes for the most complex conditions.
Originally hailing from suburban Washington, D.C., Dr. Chan attended the University of Virginia, earning a Bachelor's Degree in Biomedical Engineering in 1999 and then subsequently received his Master's Degree in Biotechnology from the Johns Hopkins University. Before finding his path in dentistry, Dr. Chan had a career as an engineer working at the National Institutes of Health. Dissatisfied with his career to that point, Dr. Chan sought to find a path where he could apply his extensive knowledge as an engineer and have a meaningful impact on those in need of healthcare. Realizing that the field of dentistry encompasses both the science of engineering and artistry, combined with the day to day impact it has on patients, Dr. Chan embarked on a new career path and earned his D.M.D at the Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. While advancing his dental education through a General Dental residency at the University of Connecticut, he made the ultimate decision that, in order to fully integrate his past as an engineer with dentistry, he needed to gain a complete comprehension of the various aspects of restorative dentistry and further his training to become a recognized specialist as a Prosthodontist. Through attending an additional 3-year residency program, he earned his Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies in Prosthodontics at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry.
Dr. Chan has now been practicing dentistry for 15 years and has been a Prosthodontic specialist for the past 10 years. In addition to working in private practices, Dr. Chan served as an Assistant Professor for over a decade at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, where he had the honor of being recognized and receiving the Dean's Award for Excellence in Clinical Teaching for his profound understanding and ability to teach and guide his students. He recently has been recognized by his colleagues and peers in Boston Magazine’s 2019 and 2020 Top Dentists and in Incisal Edge Magazine’s 2019 40 Under 40 - America’s Best Young Dentists. In his leisure time, Dr. Chan enjoys playing the acoustic and electric guitar, photography, and computer/technology building and repair. With his wife and two adorable rescue dogs, he enjoys traveling and exploring new places.
