Born and raised in Flint, Michigan, Dr. Kang headed out east to Boston to earn his undergraduate degree in Bachelor of Science from Tufts University. Afterwards, he was accepted to Northwestern University Dental School in Chicago, Illinois, and received his Doctorate in Dental Surgery degree. Longing to experience all parts of the United States, he headed out to California and completed his residency and obtained a specialty certificate in pediatric dentistry at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. His enjoyment for teaching has led him to become an associate professor at The Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC, shortly after graduation. Because of his affiliation with the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles, Dr. Kang has the unique experience of working closely with children who have special needs, such as children with cleft lip and/or palate, those who have undergone various cancer treatment, and many other patients whose care maybe best delivered in a hospital setting. His current position as a Board-certified Pediatric dentist and as an attending of the pediatric dentistry residency program at the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles is a wonderful compliment to his work in private practice. As a diplomat of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and a fellow of the American College of Pediatric Dentistry, he also belongs to a number of other professional organizations: American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, California Society of Pediatric Dentistry, California Dental Association, American Dental Association, Orange County Dental Society, and the Pediatric Dentistry Alumni Association of the University of Southern California.
Dr. Kang has devoted his professional career to all aspects of pediatric dentistry with special interests in educating parents on preventive and comprehensive pediatric dental care for all children, and those with special needs. To keep abreast of the latest developments in pediatric dentistry, he has always exceeded the continuing education requirements of California, and together with Dr.Yeung continues to ensure the office is at the forefront of pediatric dentistry.
His hobbies include cooking, watching good movies and spending time with his family and pets. He especially enjoys traveling with his wife and partner, Dr. Carol K. Yeung, and their daughter.
