Meet the dedicated dentists at Progressive Dental in SE (South East) Calgary. We think of our Calgary patients as extended family.
Dr. Robert Phan, who is originally from Vietnam and emigrated to Edmonton, joined Progressive Dental in 1998. He graduated from the University of Alberta in 1998. Robert has been an invaluable addition to the Progressive Dental and even though he grew up in Edmonton, he is now proud to call himself a Calgarian and is actively involved in the local community.
Robert believes in creating and maintaining healthy smiles, and his philosophy of dentistry is to provide each of his patients with the healthy smile and dental health they deserve. Robert enjoys working with the entire Progressive Dental team and finds that dentistry is immensely satisfying. He continues to enjoy practicing dentistry, and he looks forward to working with his existing patients--and to meeting the new ones that will cross his path.
