Rick Pan, DMD, is a highly skilled dentist serving men, women, and children from in and around San Jose, California. Dr. Pan is passionate about his role in helping patients achieve happy, healthy smiles. He’s currently welcoming new members to his practice family.
Dr. Pan began his education journey at the University of San Francisco, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in chemistry. He went on to focus on dentistry at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, one of the top Ivy League school in the country earning his Doctorate in Dental Medicine. He further expanded his skill set through a residency in general practice at the Philadelphia Veterans Affairs Medical Center, where he gained experience working on complex dental cases.
A native of the Bay Area, Dr. Pan has deep roots in the local community. He’s proud of the positive impact his work has on patients in need. In 2014, he worked in partnership with Barton Health in South Lake Tahoe, an area where there was limited access to dental professionals at that time. Through a mobile treatment unit, Dr. Pan provided emergency dental services to people who might not have otherwise received care.
In 2015, Dr. Pan took over an existing dental practice. That allowed him to take on patients already receiving care at that location, and also gave him the ability to expand his services. His current practice is thriving, and many patients are so pleased with their care they refer friends and family.
When not in the office, Dr. Pan enjoys traveling with his wife and their beloved dogs. He also enjoys photography, playing the flute, and perfecting his tropical coral and fish habitats.
If you’re looking for an experienced dentist who is also caring and compassionate, schedule a consultation with Dr. Pan at your earliest convenience. Whether you need routine preventive care, restorative services, or teeth straightening, Dr. Pan can help you achieve your best possible results.
