Dr. Benjamin Wang
I love what I do and I am passionate about helping people realize their potential and dreams. Dentistry is a vehicle that helps me deliver my passion. Since receiving my Doctor of Dental Medicine Degree from Temple University School of Dentistry in 2003, I have been fortunate to continue my advanced trainings from some of the best in the world. I have completed hundreds of hours in continuing education in cosmetic, restorative and implant dentistry, including the prestigious Kois Center, gIDE academy and Scottsdale Center for Dentistry.
It has been wonderful to call Portland home after experiencing different parts of the country which include Philadelphia, San Francisco, Davis and Fresno. We find Portland to be a community with generous, warm, family-focused and spirited people.
I am blessed with 3 healthy and beautiful children with my wife who is an amazing mom and an equally amazing pediatric dentist. They are the driving force in my life, to do good, grow, expand and reach for what’s possible.
Outside of work, I enjoy traveling, exploring new places and meeting new people. I have recently rekindle my love in running and will be doing my first Portland marathon in October.
