Meet Our Doctors
Paul Andrews, DDS
Dr. Paul Andrews is a general dentist and co-owner of Comfort Dental East Tacoma as well as a husband, father, musician, and educator. Like all his colleagues in Comfort Dental, Dr. Andrews strives to offer honest, affordable, high quality service to all the families under his care.
Born in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Dr. Andrews was the first in his family to attend college and was recruited to attend Ball State University on a music scholarship. Dr. Andrews studied bassoon and music composition and graduated magna cum laude with honors in 2001. In addition to performing with many local ensembles and orchestras, Dr. Andrews was selected as a guest composer to the Ernest Bloch Music Festival in 1999 and has had his music performed at festivals in France, Canada, Japan, and the United States.
Following graduation, Dr. Andrews taught college-level music history for one year before moving to Japan with his wife to teach English. After the birth of their first son, Dr. Andrews moved his family back to America and was accepted to the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine. The hand coordination and communication skills he developed as a musician made dental school a natural transition. Following graduation in 2012, Dr. Andrews moved to Tacoma, Washington to join Comfort Dental.
Through it all, Dr. Andrews is happy to say he still finds time to spend with his wife of 18 years, Ritsuko, and their children Masashi (16) and Akira (10). He currently splits his time between Sapporo, Japan, where his wife and children are currently living, and providing care for his patients at his Comfort Dental office in East Tacoma.
Danny Chiang, DMD
I feel blessed to be given the opportunity to influence patients’ lives in a very positive way. I take great pride in being able to relieve patients of discomfort and years of neglect and truly give them a smile they are proud of. Helping people is my passion, and I am honored to be able to do so every single day. – Danny Chiang, DMD
Dr. Danny Chiang is a professional in comprehensive restorative dentistry. He began his professional journey at the University of Massachusetts in Boston, where he received a degree in biology and pre-medical sciences. His experiences in college helped him to gravitate to the dental field. He attended the prestigious Boston University School of Dental Medicine, where he earned his doctorate in dentistry. He went on to complete an advanced education in dentistry through a residency program at Wichita State University, where he was able to further advance his clinical skills and solidify his devotion to dentistry.
Dr. Chiang had been practicing in a high-profile cosmetic practice in Boston, but his family roots in New Hampshire drew him closer to home. He joined a group of practitioners at Urgent Dental Care of New Hampshire in Manchester, NH and gained exceptional knowledge in the surgical aspects of dentistry. The combination of his talents and gentle, amicable demeanor make for an ideal clinician.
Wanting to branch out and see other parts of the country, Dr. Chiang decided to embrace an opportunity in the great state of Washington. He now lives with his wife, Lisa in Federal Way, WA and practices in Tacoma, WA.
In order to enhance his knowledge in many aspects of dentistry, Dr. Chiang continues his education through seminars with both local and national dental societies and has completed over 600 hours of continuing education. It is his goal to always provide the best and most up-to-date care for his patients.
Dr. Chiang enjoys working out, travelling, and relaxing at home. He is a movie buff and loves to watch all varieties of film. His additional hobbies include technology, computers, and cars.
Dr. Chiang looks forward to meeting new patients and welcomes anyone looking for emergency or routine dental care to come experience Comfort Dental in East Tacoma.
