Born in the Midwest but raised in Southern California, Dr. Wang grew up with enamel deficiency as a child. After receiving full mouth reconstruction along with eighteen root canals and two apicoectomies, she was motivated by her own condition to help others find their confidence by dedicating her life to dentistry. After graduating from University of California, San Diego, she attended the nation’s only 3-year accelerated dental program at University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco.
Because Dr. Wang is always seeking to improve as a healthcare provider, she decided to pursue an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency at a community health center in Tucson, Arizona. As the top performing resident, she was granted the “Excellence in Dentistry” award, and it was during the course of her postdoctoral training that she developed a love for endodontics. Dr. Wang worked as the lead general dentist at several dental practices in Arizona and California before completing her specialty training at NYU Langone Brooklyn Hospital, where she treated patients of diverse age and socio-economic background. As she reflects on the countless memories of having a toothache and visiting the endodontist for relief, Dr. Wang is reminded of why endodontics is her calling.
Outside of dentistry, she enjoys many hobbies. She discovered her love for dance at the age of 6 in ballet and has not stopped dancing since. She also enjoys weight-lifting, kickboxing and snowboarding. Giving back to the community is also important to her, so she spends time volunteering at local health clinics. In the past, she has traveled to Honduras and Cambodia with other dentists to provide oral health care and education in rural villages. In all that she does, Dr. Wang strives to provide patient-centered care in the most painless manner.
