A Little About Dr. Tang... Dr. Tang recently moved here from San Diego. (We keep asking why he didn't bring the warm weather with him!) He graduated from the University of California San Francisco School of Dentistry, followed by a two-year general dentistry residency in Community Regional Medical Centers in Fresno and one-year fellowship serving an under-served population at the University of California in San Diego. He completed his orthodontic specialty program at St. Barnabas Hospital in New York - so the cold weather isn't a complete shock for him.:)
Dr. Tang's passion for service and community involvement was one of the key factors in making his move to Napoleon. He is excited about our vision for the practice and the impact it can have on our patients, team, and community. Growing up, his family instilled core values of service that they apply to their daily lives. They grew up serving in local community clinics and church after-school programs. He and his younger sisters all play the piano and harp and dedicated their talents by playing music at local senior homes. They even hosted their own Tang Family Harp Concert for a few years, which we're hoping to get videos of sometime! During and prior to dental school, he served as a pre-dental volunteer in San Diego free clinics providing care to homeless and low-income families.
When not at work, Dr. Tang enjoys catching up with friends and family, serving the less fortunate, and playing strategic board games that are cooperative and teamwork oriented. He loves games where all players work together toward a common goal and win together. He recently had us all laughing with a fun team-building game named Just One!
Dr. Tang looks forward to meeting you and welcomes any questions or concerns you may have about your treatment. Thank you for working alongside us as we make these exciting transitions.
"My son is diagnosed with some behavioral issues and I was amazed at how Dr. Tang and his assistants work so well and calmly with him. They care about his physical and mentla well being and make sure he is aware of it, too! I would recommend their services to anyone and everyone!"
