The Clinician: Dr. John T.W. Hung alongside certified specialists Dr. Peter Y.K. Chan, Dr. Mark F. Casafrancisco, Dr. Elsa Hui-Derksen, Dr. Jennifer Yee, and Dr. Jonathan L. Hung are all members of Monarch Pediatric Dentistry family. The group is pleased to introduce you to one of the revolutionary changes in the landscape of restorative pediatric dentistry over the last 10 years. Since 2012, the adoption of the prefabricated zirconia crown in our pediatric restorative toolkit has demonstrated how clinically successful this restorative option is for the children of our practice as a viable, biocompatible, functional and esthetic complementary option to our long term friends: the stainless steel crown and the composite strip crown. We hope to show you why this may add some new value or dimension to your scope of practice as an example of how it has continued to uphold and fulfill the lifelong community-wide Monarch mission to “Build healthy happy smiles that last a lifetime”.
Dr John Hung co-founded Monarch in 1997, the practice of which has grown to several locations and five additional partners, with associates to aid in the Monarch mission. Collectively, they are Fellows of the Royal College of Dental Surgeons and/or Diplomates of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. They have served the community at UBC as clinical assistant professors and educators, and serving on staff at BC’s Children’s Hospital. In organized dentistry, their combined accolades include having served or are currently attending a post in the BC Society of Pediatric Dentists, affiliations with the RCDC as board examiners, scientific committee officer membership of the American/Canadian Academies of Pediatric Dentistry, as well as participation in clinical practice-based research in collaboration with UBC Dentistry.
