Dr. William Dang
Welcome to GDA! I’m Dr. William Dang. Dentistry has allowed me to combine my two best attributes – caring for others and artistry. As a dentist, I love to help my patients achieve good oral health along with great esthetics so they can feel confident. But most of all, dentistry has allowed me to get to know my patients and really learn from their experiences to better myself as a person and a healthcare professional.
I grew up locally in the Northern Virginia area where I graduated high school and went on to attend Virginia Tech to get my BS in Biochemistry. Go Hokies! During my time at Virginia Tech, I joined multiple student organizations that built my leadership qualities which proved to be very useful in my dental career path. During college, I also worked and volunteered at local dental offices to gain hands-on experiences that would lead me to attend dental school. I completed my Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) from Midwestern University in Chicago, IL.
After dental school, I transitioned into private practice and worked in Pennsylvania for several years. Then I decided to move closer to home where I found myself at GDA. GDA has been a great place for me to practice due to the amazing support that I get from all of the doctors, hygienists, assistants, and schedule coordinators who share the same passion and vision to provide the best care for all our patients. Because of this passion to provide the best care for our patients, I find myself continuing my education through many avenues of Continued Education courses about different aspects of dentistry.
Outside of the office, you can find me spending time with my fiancée, Amber. I am a local DC sports fan with my favorite team being the Washington Wizards. I currently stay active by playing volleyball, ultimate frisbee, and basketball every week. I am also an avid traveler as I love learning about different cultures and trying different cuisines.
