Meet Dr. Joseph Yang, DMD, MD, MBE
Oral Surgeon in San Francisco
Dr. Joseph Yang brings an extensive educational background to our practice. He attended Tufts University in Massachusetts, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in philosophy. His continued pursuit of education brought him to Philadelphia where he attended dental school at the University of Pennsylvania. While in dental school, he was awarded a full scholarship to simultaneously obtain his Master’s degree in Bioethics at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. He graduated in the top ten of his Dental School class and was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society. He then moved to San Francisco to start his combined medical degree/oral and maxillofacial surgery training program at UCSF. There, he obtained his M.D. and his certificate in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
Born in Alaska and spending his childhood growing up in California, Oregon and Washington, Dr. Yang has always called the West Coast home. It was there in Washington where he first met his wife, Dr. Rachel Yang, in their high school calculus class. Currently residing in the Bay Area, Dr. Yang and his wife enjoy cooking, traveling and have a fond appreciation of music.
