Dr. Dorothy Tang

Dr. Dorothy Tang

General Dentist

Dr. Dorothy Tang graduated with a Bachelor of Medical Laboratory Science at the University of British Columbia and completed her dentistry degree at James Cook University in Australia. Dr. Tang fell in love with Australia when she first visited Melbourne to volunteer for the Bushfire Recovery Project. Following her undergraduate degree in BC, she returned to a different part of Australia – the tropical city of Cairns, Queensland where she lived and studied dentistry.

Dr. Tang values building a trusting relationship with her patients and creating an environment where her patients feel comfortable cared for, and well-informed at their dental appointment. She enjoys taking the time to get to know each patient so that she can consider their concerns and come up with a comprehensive and tailored treatment plan. Her warm, caring, and friendly personality allows children and anxious patients to feel at ease. Dr. Tang’s particular interests include oral surgery, endodontics, and restorative dentistry. She is an advocate for minimally invasive dentistry and likes to provide options for conservative dental care whenever possible.

During her free time, Dr. Tang likes to spend time with friends and family. She also enjoys attending dental seminars to stay up-to-date, practicing yoga, and playing the piano.
