Meet Dr. Jessica Chiang

Dr. Jessica Chiang is a board-certified pediatric dentist. She completed her pediatric specialty training and received her Master of Science from the Tufts University in Boston. At her graduation, Dr. Chiang received numerous awards. She also received the “Richard C. Pugh Achievement Award” from the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry in 2009. This award is presented only to the top three percent of all the national candidates who complete the board qualifying examination.

Before she entered the specialty program, Dr. Chiang was a general dentist for many years. Because of her strong background in treating adults and seeing all kinds of oral problems typical of adults, she believes in starting preventive programs at the earliest possible age — preferably during infancy. She also provides prenatal counseling for pregnant women.

After her graduation from the specialty training, Dr. Chiang served as an assistant professor and director of the pre-doctoral pediatric dental program at Tufts University, Pediatric Dental Department. To augment her pediatric dentistry specialty, she also has a special interest in serving special-needs patients. She treated cleft lip and palate babies as young as two weeks old with nasal-alveolar molding appliances to decrease the deformity of the cleft and enhance feeding.

As an academic professor, Dr. Chiang constantly updates her knowledge, and her practice strictly follows the guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. Her practice focuses on disease prevention, and she works to create a happy, relaxed atmosphere in which all children can enjoy their dental treatment.

Dr. Chiang is a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, American Dental Association, American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, and California Dental Association.
