Dr. Hung & Associates Dental Center (now Worldwide Dental & Cosmetic Surgery Hospital) was established by Dr. Do Dinh Hung, DDS.PhD in 1994 and is the first dental clinic in Ho Chi Minh City that follows the model of a US dental clinic.
We are also proud to be the first dental clinic in Vietnam that was approved by Vietnam Ministry of Health to be upgraded to a dental & cosmetic surgery hospital, as of February 2018, providing 781 different dental, maxillofacial surgery, cosmetic surgery and dermatology services.
In September 1994, Dr. Hung came to the US for the first time to attend a Master program in dentistry via an invitation from University of Houston – Texas and had a chance to visits various dental clinics in the US. During his time in the US, Dr. Hung knew his mission would be “Providing Perfection” in dental services by bringing international care standards to Vietnam. He also realized his vision is to put Vietnam Dentistry on the map, competing with well-known dental clinics in developed countries.
After returning to Vietnam, Dr. Do Dinh Hung established the first dental clinic in Vietnam that follows the model of a US dental clinic. Together with his associates, he set out to realize his new found mission and vision.
In 2014, Dr. Hung & Associates Dental Center became the only dental clinic in Vietnam that was rated 5 star on WhatClinic. Since then, we have consistently maintained this 5 star rating, achieving 99% success rate in all of our dental treatment and 95% patient satisfaction rating. As of 2017, we have served customers from 46 out of 63 Vietnam cities/provinces and international customers from 49 different countries in the world.
In early 2017, together with a team of plastic surgeons and dermatologists who share similar vision, Dr. Hung has upgraded Dr. Hung & Associates Dental Center to Worldwide Dental & Cosmetic Surgery Hospital. We have further invested in our infrastructure, increased our number of professionals and followed strict hospital standards to ensure we can provide the perfect care to our customers.
After a year of building and being inspected by Ministry of Health, on June 2, 2018 Worldwide Dental & Cosmetic Surgery Hospital was officially granted a license to operate by Ministry of Health and to provide 781 different services related to dental, maxillofacial surgery, cosmetic surgery and dermatology.
Our mission is “Providing Perfection,” by providing the perfect union between health and beauty.
