Meet Dr. Donald Kwon

Upon completion of my education at USC's School of Dentistry and Orthodontics, I began a career in orthodontics alongside my father, Dr. Kwon. Those who know me describe me as a happy individual who is passionate about family, friends, and meeting new people, which is why this profession was and is my passion. When working with patients, I feel as though my job is more of an enjoyable hobby rather than work. Building trusting and long lasting relationships with patients is both a hope and a goal for my practice. In sharing the skills I have attained, I am able to help others gain confidence through a stunning smile, and for many, it is a life changing experience.

Outside of the Practice

I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California and grew up in La Canada. Although I was raised in California, I spent four years in Pennsylvania for my undergraduate studies. As a Korean American, I enjoy bits and pieces of both cultures, especially food. I'm an avid fan of good, simple eating, and nothing compares to my enjoyment of sweets. Cakes, cookies, chocolate, candy, ice cream...you name it. I spend most of my free time at church, hanging out with friends, or playing various sports such as soccer. I enjoy partaking in such activities in order to keep a balance between work and leisure.
