Dr. Jinah Kang was born in Korea and raised in Rockville, MD.  Dr. Kang did her undergraduate studies at University of Maryland at College Park, attended Rutgers University where she received her Master’s degree in Biomedical Sciences and she then earned her Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree at University of Pennsylvania - School of Dental Medicine.  She later received her orthodontic specialty certificate with a concurrent Master’s degree in Oral Biology at Temple University - Kornberg School of Dentistry.

Dr. Kang’s love for dentistry stems from her desire to transform the lives of her patients. As a child, she wore traditional metal braces, with the end result elevating her confidence level. It is for this reason Dr. Kang decided to specifically pursue orthodontics. Her ability to help patients achieve the beautiful smile they deserve and to see how happy they feel about themselves are what makes it very rewarding.

Dr. Kang attributes her many successes to her parents - John and Linda Kang. Throughout her life they have been her biggest cheerleaders, with her dentistry journey being no different. Her mentors along the way would have also helped Dr. Kang to become the resilient and hardworking professional she is today. During her leisure time, Dr. Kang enjoys playing the piano, which she learned to play when she attended Claude Watson for the Arts in her short time living in Toronto, Canada. She also enjoys snuggling up to read a good mystery novel and spending time with her nephew. So when you do come in for your visit, be sure to ask her about her latest mystery adventure!

As the newest member of the Quince Orchard family, Dr. Kang has big plans to do her part to keep the practice always reaching new heights. Our practice is known for its timeliness and attentiveness to each patient and as such, Dr. Kang intends to continue along that path. She hopes to provide great care and spend more time with each and every orthodontic patient, while making their visit as comfortable as possible. With her happy and bubbly personality, we are confident our patients will feel right at home with Dr. Kang.

Our new ortho days will be Tuesday’s 8am-5pm, Friday’s 8am-4pm, Saturday’s 8am-1pm, and when we need to open a third day will also have Monday appointments available. We will also be in network with some dental insurances in the future…Stay Tuned!
