From Our Faculty


Dr. Yujun Wang, DDS Prosthodontic Resident, Harvard TCDM First Graduating Class of 2020 @dr.wang_to_smile We are so proud of you! ย  Touro College of Dental Medicine (TCDM) was on Yujun Wang's list of schools, but after the interview process, Yujan moved it to the top. โ€œI will never forget the genuine kindness and attention of one interviewer, in particular. When he saw I was nervous, he said, โ€˜Letโ€™s switch. You interview me.' Yujan was gobsmackedโ€”and grateful. He doesnโ€™t remember what he asked, but he walked away thinking. โ€œI want to go to this school.โ€ ย  Beyond the faculty, Yujun felt the school itself was impressive. TCDM is the first dental school to open in New York State in 50 years. It is state-of-the-art, from the newest technology to experienced professors who are dedicated to every single studentโ€™s success. The College graduated its first class of 103 students, including Yujun, in May 2020. โ€œWe were the very first group. We bonded and we learned, and we loved everything about the school.โ€ ย  The trifecta of TCDMโ€™s technology, teaching and student camaraderie worked. Today, Yujun is prosthodontics resident at Harvard School of Dental Medicine. Prosthodontists handle dental problems that involve restoring missing teeth. They are highly trained in everything from implants, crowns, bridges and dentures to full mouth reconstruction. ย  Yujun considers prosthodontics a perfect fit for him. Some patients cannot afford dental care so by the time he sees them, they are in pain, missing teeth theyโ€™ve pulled out themselves or have no teeth left. โ€œThey need me, and I want to help them.โ€œ ย  Recently, he did extensive repairs for a patient. โ€œWhen all the work was accomplished, I handed her a mirror. She stared at herself for a long time. She was so surprised, and she kept smiling at her reflection. I was smiling with her.โ€ #TCDM #TCDMALUMNI #studentsofdentistry #dentistsofinstagram #dentalschool #dentistlife #prosthodontics harvard @harvarddentalmed #harvardmedicalschool #harvard
