Dr. Ling knew from a young age the impact a smile could make in a person's life from his own experience with his dentist. After he attended the Michael E. Debakey High School for Health Professions and rotated through a dental preceptorship at the University of Texas School of Dentistry here in Houston, he then knew it would be his calling. Dr. Ling would attend the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio School of Dentistry, where he earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree. Upon graduation, his quest for continual improvement would see him return to UT Houston for a 2-year General Practice Residency where he would learn advanced oral surgery, implants, orthodontics, endodontics, cosmetics, fixed and removable prosthodontics, sedation, and management of special care patients.
Following residency, he has furthered his education by completing a 2-year hands-on orthodontic course with the Academy of GP Orthodontics and earning his Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry, a designation that only 6% of all general dentists currently hold.
His interests lie in comprehensive treatment and digital dentistry, and how effective utilization of both can provide optimal care and enhance communication with patients.
Dr. Ling is married to his high school sweetheart, Mackenzi Green, and they have a son, Lucian.
He is a member of the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, the Academy of GP Orthodontics, and the American Academy of Clear Aligners.
