Meet Dr. Steve Yang
Providing the best quality of dental care is important to us and we have done that since Salisbury, NC 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.
In the Community
Volunteering also is a big part of Dr. Yang’s life. He has volunteered his dentistry services for the Give Kids a Smile dental sealant project, Colgate Dental Health Program , the Community Care Clinic, and the MOM (Missions of Mercy) clinic.
In the community, Dr. Yang was a past member with the Country Club of Salisbury Board of Directors and Catawba College Chiefs Club. He currently serves on the Board of Directors at First Bank, Thrivent Community Piedmont Regional Team, and Rowan Little League.
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. Recently, Dr.Yang was the manager of the Rowan Little League softball team that won the 2015 Softball Little League World Series and was the runner up in the 2016 Softball Little League World Series, both held in Portland, Oregon.
