Meet Orthodontist Dr. Jinah Kang
Dr. Kang was born and raised in Rockville, MD and completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Maryland in College Park. She then went on to Rutgers University where she obtained her Master’s degree in Biomedical Sciences and finally completed her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. After completion of these programs, Dr. Kang received her certificate of orthodontic specialty concurrent with a Master’s degree in Oral Biology at Temple University- Kornberg School of Dentistry.
Her love of Dentistry stems from her desire to transform the lives of her patients. Dr. Kang attributes this from her childhood experience of wearing traditional metal braces and noticing the transformation of not only her teeth at the conclusion of her treatment but her self esteem and confidence. “The ability to help my patients achieve a beautiful, functional smile that they deserve and to witness the immediate confidence boost is very rewarding. This is definitely my life’s calling”.
In her free time, Dr. Kang enjoys playing the piano-- she’s been playing since she was four years old! She also enjoys binge-watching Netflix and spending time with her friends!
