Dr. Tang is proud to include his partner Dr. Carmen Ha in his practice. They first met in high school and continue to share common dreams and goals.

Dr. Carmen Ha also graduated from UCSD in 2001 with cum laude honors in majoring in Biochemistry and Cell Biology. She graduated in the same class as Dr. Tang at the UCLA School of Dentistry in 2006. Upon completion of dental school, she continued her dental training through a one-year general practice residency at the Veterans Administration (VA) Sepulveda Ambulatory Care Center. Through the program, she learned to treat the most medically compromised population in a hospital setting without sacrificing the integrity of the dental treatment. From this training, she is even more competent to provide the highest quality oral health care to these patients.
