About Dr. YANG
As a student, I knew I wanted to work in the healthcare field. I especially wanted to work directly with people and educate them about maintaining their health. That dream attracted me to dentistry, one of the few professions in which one can work to support people’s health through one-on-one personal treatment. I attended one of the nation’s leading dental schools, the University of the Pacific’s Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry. You might say I never left—I now teach two and a half days a week there as Assistant Professor of Integrated Reconstructive Dental Sciences.
I operate my dental practice in partnership with my wife, Joanne Jeng, a terrific dentist. A general family practice, we offer comprehensive examinations and the best treatment possible for everything our patients need, from dental cleaning, cosmetic dentistry, and whitening to root canals, periodontal disease treatment, oral cancer checks, surgical specialist referrals, and teeth grinding treatment.
My practice stands out for some qualities that I think are rare in today’s dental practices. First and foremost, I take the time to develop a personal relationship with every patient. No rushing through the appointment: I listen carefully to be sure to understand and take the best care of each person’s dental health. We also make it a priority to ensure little or no wait time when our patients come in for their appointments. Their time is just as valuable as the doctors’.
Another distinction I’m proud of is that my teaching informs my practice. We are able to introduce the latest—digital x-rays and the best optics, for example—to make our patients feel comfortable. I am committed to going the extra mile to educate my patients about their dental health and how to maintain it. In addition to explaining carefully during appointments, I follow up by emailing videos and links to my patients.
I love getting to know each patient personally and delivering the best care possible through a multidisciplinary approach to simple or complex dental needs.
Dr. Yang and his wife, Dr. Joanne Jeng, are proud parents to two young children, and experts at juggling family life and professional responsibilities. He enjoys photography and collects comic books and toys. Above all, Dr. Yang loves basketball and baseball—he is a huge Golden Gate Warriors and San Francisco Giants fan. He is a self-proclaimed “nerd doctor and sports geek, all in one!”
