Meet Dr. Steve Yang


Providing the best quality of dental care is important to us and we have done that since Salisbury, North Carolina Dentist Dr. Steve W. Yang started his private dentistry practice in 1997. In June 2009, we moved into a brand new building that offers our patients the same friendly, knowledgeable staff in a comfortable, relaxing environment with modern dental amenities.

A personal interest in health care combined with a number of personal dental issues prompted Dr. Steve W. Yang to pursue a career in dentistry. He is a 1997 graduate of the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry. Prior to that, he earned a bachelor’s degree in biology from UNC-Chapel Hill.

Dr. Yang’s professional affiliations include: the Rowan-Cabarrus Community College Dental Advisory Board; vice-chairman of the Rowan County Board of Health; former secretary/treasurer, vice president, and president of the Rowan County Dental Society; North Carolina Dental Society; American Dental Association; and the Academy of General Dentistry.

Family & Faith

Born in Seoul, South Korea, Dr. Yang moved to Salisbury, NC at age 7. He graduated from East Rowan High School. He and his wife, Lori, have six children: John , Alex , Ellen, Ashley, and the newest additions, Luke and Aaron (adopted from China).

In November 2001, their other son, Michael, passed away, which led the family to start the Michael Yang Foundation. The foundation’s primary objective is to support the Circle of Hope, a bereavement service for parents who have lost children.

The Yangs attend St. John’s Lutheran Church in Salisbury. In his spare time, Dr. Yang enjoys golf, travel, UNC sports, spending time with his family and coaching youth sports. As the head coach, won the Little League softball world series in Portland OR with older daughter, Ellen, in 2015 and younger daughter, Ashley, in 2019.
