Meet Dr. Yong Chang
Welcome! I am excited to be back home in Chicago and to be able to serve the community I grew up in. I was raised in the Albany Park neighborhood and attended Lincoln Park high school. After graduating from Lincoln Park, I moved to Omaha, Nebraska to attend Creighton University. I became interested in pursuing a career in dentistry during my Sophomore in undergrad. I broke off one of my fillings and ended up going to the dental school on campus for treatment. During my visits to the dental clinic, the student dentist gave me a tour of the dental school and provided insights into what dental school was like. I became interested and decided to study and apply to dental school. 8 years later, I left Omaha with a Bachelor of Science degree in biology and a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree.
After graduating from dental school, I spent my first 5 years working as an associate dentist in Lake City, IA. I was the only dentist in town, and it provided the opportunity to learn fast. It was a wonderful small town where I had the pleasure of serving and working with a lot of good people. I moved back home to be closer to family and friends 4 years ago and worked as an associate dentist in various parts of IL.
I decided to open my own office to be able to have the freedom to practice the type of dentistry I believe in. I believe that honesty, education, and transparency are the most valuable principles to have as a foundation. My hope is that I can help all of my patients by educating them about their oral health and their needs. I also aim to dedicate myself to a lifelong pursuit of continued education to learn the latest technology and techniques available so that I can provide those services to my patients. One of my passions is to give back to the community and those in need, which I hope to have more opportunities to do as my career advances.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, training for local 5k’s and half-marathons, watching movies, traveling to new places, and cheering on the Cubs, Bulls, Bears and the Creighton Bluejays.
