Dr. Jim Wang was originally from Culver City, California. He graduated in the the top 5% of his class at Venice High School in Los Angeles. Afterwards, he graduated from UC Berkeley with Honors and a degree in Molecular Cell Biology. He worked a couple of years for NASA Ames Research Center assisting in the development of the CTAS Air Traffic Controller project. However his passion to help those in need lead him to pursue a career in dentistry. Dr. Jim obtained his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the UCLA School of Dentistry - one of the top dental schools in the United States.

It is here at UCLA School of Dentistry that Dr. Jim met and fell in love with his wife, Dr. Melanie. After graduation, they both moved to Saint Louis, MO so that Dr. Melanie could complete her orthodontic residency at Saint Louis University. Upon completion of her residency, they realized how much they missed California. They decided to settle in San Diego to raise their family. Today, Dr. Jim is a proud father of his 2 year old son, Tyler Wang.
