Dr. Daniel Chung
Dr. Daniel Chung was born and raised in Southern California. Although he didn’t know it while living there, he was a Pacific Northwesterner at heart. After receiving a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature, he decided to follow his father’s footsteps into dentistry.
After graduating dental school, he worked for several years before moving to the greater Portland area in 2011.
Dr. Chung appreciates that every patient who visits our office has a story that informs their relationship with dentistry. He feels his role is to provide sound diagnoses, then inform and educate patients of their options so they can make the decisions that are best for them. His greatest satisfaction comes from patients who have wonderful dental experiences.
When he’s not at the office, Dr. Chung can be found with his wife and sons. He enjoys reading each morning, amateur carpentry when weather and time permit, skiing Mt. Hood, and being involved in his church.

Dr. David Mussone
In 2006 Dr. David Mussone graduated from the Marquette University School of Dentistry. Dr. Mussone completed his general dentistry residency as a member of the Naval Medical Center in Portsmouth, Virginia. The next four years were spent in active duty as a US Naval Dental Officer with the 7th Marine Corps.
In 2010 Dr. Mussone moved to Coos Bay Oregon. After some years in his own private practice, he missed the collegiate atmosphere of working with other general dentists and decided to move to the Portland area. Dr. Mussone joined a locally founded group dental practice for several years before finding the right fit for his true passion, helping phobic patients that had a greater need for his extensive skill set. As a member of the Sleep Dentistry of Portland team, he found he could focus on helping these patients achieve the dental health they had been missing for years through the use of his sedation dentistry expertise.
There is nothing he loves more than connecting with his patients and providing a non-judgmental experience to facilitate them getting back to a healthy long-lasting smile. Dr. Mussone brings his wide skill set to Sleep Dentistry of Portland, from full mouth reconstruction, root canals, and implant restoration to routine fillings and dentures.
