Meet A Dad: Dr. Chansoo Hah - Stamford Moms

How many kids do you have and what are their ages?
I have two boys. Zachary is 5 yeard old and Roy is 2 years old.

What do you like most about raising a family in Stamford?
I love living and enjoying diversity and enriched culture in Stamford. The city has good outdoor activities and nice foods.

Tell us about your career.
I love my job as a dentist. I can see all nice smiles of children every day, which makes my job so amazing.

Why did you decide to become a pediatric dentist?
Because, I enjoy working with children. There is a variety of patients seen on a daily basis. You never know what you may come across. It is exciting and fun.

What do you love about your job as a dentist at Hello Dental in Stamford?
I love how children grow and become comfortable with our team. It is amazing feeling to see children to become happy to be at the dentist’s office.

What is your #1 tip for getting children to brush their teeth?
I try to tell parents always to give positive enforcement after brushing teeth. As I do to my kids, I usually read books and spend 15 minutes Lego time after brushing. So, they see brushing teeth is a fun activity.

How do you balance work & family?
I try my best to work and spend time with my family at the same time. Since I enjoy every moment of work and family time, it becomes easy to balance between them.

What’s the best piece of “dad advice” you’ve gotten so far?
My dad told me, “This moment won’t come back again”. I always remind myself that my time with my family is very precious. It leads me to have so much fun with my kids and make unforgettable memories for my kids and myself.
