Dr. Dang actually didn’t attend a dental appointment until he was 12 years old, and the appointment was definitely a wakeup call – the dentist threatened to extract all of his teeth! As he began to take oral hygiene more seriously, an interest in the dental field was ignited, and the rest is history.
Dr. Dang grew up in Southern California before moving to the Bay Area. There, he attended and graduated from the UCSF School of Dentistry with his Doctor of Dental Surgery; he also received prestigious awards from the American Academy of Periodontology and other organizations for his academic excellence.
Following his base dental training, Dr. Dang continued his education with a rigorous, three-year post-graduate residency program in Periodontics at UCSF, where he served as Chief Resident. During this process, he also received a Master of Science (MS) degree; during this time, he focused on research in mini dental implants in order to evaluate the quality of life that patients could achieve through this advanced treatment.
In his spare time, Dr. Dang enjoys hanging out with his family, going on bike rides, running long distance, cooking, traveling, gardening, watching movies, and maintaining a healthy mind. He is also passionate about mission trips and has regularly traveled both throughout the USA and to other countries like Cambodia and Guatemala in order to care for poor and dentally under-served children.
