About Dr. Dang
Dr. Peter H. Dang was born and raised in Orange County, California. The last of four children to all attend the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), he received a Bachelor’s degree in Molecular Biology and also completed Master’s coursework in the field of Oral Biology at UCLA’s School of Dentistry. Dr. Dang received his doctorate (DDS) from the New York University College of Dentistry (NYU), where he was one of only a handful of seniors who participated in two honors elective courses. He was also an active member of the Xi Psi Phi fraternity and President of the Christian Medical & Dental Association.
After NYUCD, Dr. Dang completed a one-year Advanced Education in General Dentistry Residency at Lutheran Medical Center in Spokane, WA. While caring for the underserved and medically complex patients there, he became proficient at a myriad of dental procedures including molar root canals and surgical extractions. Upon completing his residency program, Dr. Dang stayed in Spokane, WA for a number of years, practicing dentistry and also serving as a part-time Clinical Professor at Eastern Washington University’s Dental Hygiene Department. Dr. Dang is excited and thankful for the opportunity to return home to Orange County and provide dental care to the community that helped raise him.
Dr. Dang has always made postgraduate coursework a top priority in order to enhance his services in the dental profession. He enjoys taking courses in cosmetic dentistry, implants, and he keeps up to date on the latest dental materials and techniques. His commitment to continuing education has allowed Dr. Dang to better serve his patients and to remain abreast of the latest technology.
Away from the office, Dr. Dang enjoys cooking, watching sports (Go Bruins!), and spending time with his wife, Jessica.
