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, graduating with High Honors and Distinctions in both Dental Education and Dental Research.
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, fixed and removable prosthodontics, cosmetics, 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. He is currently taking hundreds of hours in continuing education encompassing all facets of dentistry and is working towards Mastership - a distinction awarded to only 2% of general dentists - by 2025.
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, and they are proud parents to a young son and daughter.
He is a member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, American Academy of Clear Aligners, and Academy of GP Orthodontics.
