Dr. Steve Jang is pleased to have the opportunity to focus on patient care and best practices, without the pressures of financial performance that are often encountered in managed-care dentistry.
Before beginning his dental career, Dr. Jang graduated cum laude from Midwestern State University. He earned his DDS from the Dental School at University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, ranked the fourth best program in the world in terms of published articles and eleventh in scientific impact, according to an international report by the Center for Science and Technology Studies in Bern, Switzerland. To further develop his clinical skills, he pursued an Advanced Education in General Dentistry at the Veteran’s Administration in Temple, Texas.
Through this residency, he gained high proficiency in cosmetic dentistry, full mouth rehabilitation, oral surgery, implant placement and restoration, IV sedation, oral sedation, and other techniques. He also learned how to properly provide the most appropriate treatment plans for each patient, putting long-term dental health first.
Dr. Jang was born in South Korea. He and his family moved to the U.S. when he was fifteen, and he was raised by his parents and grandmother, who taught him the values of love and caring for others. Having witnessed the sacrifices his parents had to make both in terms of hard work and time away from family, he chose to pursue a career in dentistry based on his desire to care for others and to have quality time to spend with his family.
Dr. Jang is active in his community and is involved in the young adult ministry at his local church. He is also an avid fisherman and enjoys the outdoors, travelingand eating — especially Korean food, sushi, and BBQ.

Dr. Jang enjoys working at Pinnacle Dental and strives to treat his patients like family.
