Dr. Greg Chang
Dr. Greg Chang is a writer, trained chef, clown and dentist. As a dentist, Dr. Chang knows the importance of a healthy diet and lifestyle to maintain good physical and emotional health in children, as pediatrics is a large component of his practice.
Dr. Greg graduated from UBC Dental School in 1986. He has practiced most of his career in Surrey and enjoys practicing all aspects of family dentistry. He has a keen interest in Sports Dentistry, as he has been the team dentist for the BC Lions Football Club for over 20 years, and is a member of the Academy for Sports Dentistry, which regularly meets with team dentists from the NFL, NHL, NBA, MLB and other professional and amateur sports leagues.
Dr Chang’s other interests include cooking, circus and kid’s entertainment, which led him to create Dr. Greg’s SuperChefs Cookery for Kids, a non-profit program that teaches children basic cooking, nutrition and physical activity (basketball camps with Basketball BC), and works with SD36 (Surrey School District) to provide summer programming for children in the Surrey community. The program is part of UBC Dentistry’s Community Outreach programs, which teach preventative oral health care and wellness to kids 9-11 years old, and regularly participates in community events such as Eat!Vancouver and Fusion Festival in Holland Park. The program recently partnered with Westin Hotels to create the SuperChefs Eat Well Kids menu, which is available in every Westin Hotel in the world, and the recipes were inspired from the SuperChefs Surrey Summer camp programs run over the last few years in Surrey schools.
Dr. Chang’s culinary training includes:
- Dubrulle International Culinary and Hotel Institute of Canada and Northwest Culinary Institute in Vancouver
- Darina Allen’s Ballymaloe Cookery School in Ireland
- Walnut Grove Cookery, Loire Valley France
- Ritz Escofier, Paris France
- Culinary Institute of America, Hyde Park, New York and GreyStone in Napa, California, USA.
Treating children inspired him to write SuperChefs of the Universe (www.superchefs.tv), a group of intergalactic chefs, written with writers from Sesame Street, which is helping in the battle against childhood obesity.
