The reason I became a dentist was to show people another side of dentistry. I wanted to bring a softer side of dentistry, with comfort, compassion, and precision, to everyday people like myself. I want people to get the dentistry that I always wanted to receive. No one goes to the dentist for fun; my goal is to have my office be a safe, pain-free environment where my patients feel completely at ease.


After graduating high school in 1983, I became involved in dentistry by working in the denture lab at UCLA. This built upon my foundation in the arts by utilizing my love of working with my hands.

My passion in cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry led me in my lifelong pursuit of surgical and prosthetic training. I have worked and studied in Texas, New Mexico, and Virginia, incorporating all I have learned to enhance my practice. For more than 20 years, I have tried to excel at what I do to master the art of dentistry and all its facets. I want my patients to experience the dentistry that I would insist my family receives.

Originally from Victoria, Texas, I have lived in Fairfax for seven years. I have an amazing wife, Sarah, and two young daughters, Alexis and Olivia. At home with my family is where I love to be when I’m not in the office, but I take time to volunteer with the MOMS project to bring urgent dental care to those in need.

Have always been apprehensive about going to dentist as a result of bad experiences earlier in life. Dr. Hangval and his staff are fantastic. They have made my experiences as pain-free as possible and continuously check to make sure you are doing well.

I have been going to this dental clinic for about 3 years and it is always a pleasant experience. From the moment you enter the clinic you are received with a smile and just taken great care of. All of my visits have been pleasant.

Great Service - very flexible/and always welcome you with smile. We have moved further out but I still bring my kids here as it is very comfortable. I would give more stars if that was option.
