Dr. Walter Wang strongly believes that establishing a harmonious patient-doctor relation is the key to every patient’s oral health success. He aims to first understand each individual’s needs through active listening, and then seek to be understood by having a dialogue with every patient.

He values patient education and believes helping everyone to achieve an optimal oral health is the foundation for each individual’s overall well-being.

Dr. Wang received his Doctorate in Dental Medicine (DMD) from Boston University Henry M.
