Physician Bio

Dr. Wang’s goal as a pediatric dentist is to provide exceptional care for her patients. She strives to be a gentle and kind dentist because it is important to her that her patients have positive dental experiences. Dr. Wang provides comprehensive and individualized oral health care to children from infancy through adolescence. Dr. Wang is the Dental Director at Friends of Family Health Center since 2009 and has been practicing dentistry since 2002.

In her Master’s Thesis, Dr. Wang developed a visual aid that was used when educating parents of young children about explaining the children’s dental treatment needs. Her findings showed that the use of this visual aid increased the understanding of dental caries and increased treatment cooperation of the parents and their children significantly. The findings of her thesis are published with the Pediatric Dentistry journal.

Dr. Wang and her husband Ben live locally in Fullerton. They love traveling, exploring new places, dining out, cooking, and spending time with friends and family.
