Meet Dr. Ming Yeh

“A beautiful smile means a lot to most people and I feel fortunate to play an important role in the team that can make it happen. I am so happy that I am capable of providing the best when it comes to our clinic. Seeing my patients regain the function and confidence is not good enough for me; the long-term satisfaction excites me the most.” – Dr. Yeh

Education and Continuing Education

Dr. Ming Yeh received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 1982 from National Yang-Ming Medical University, in Taiwan. He got into the restorative branch and became an attending doctor before he came to the United States for training in implant dentistry in 1991. After three years of didactic courses and inter-disciplinary studies for patients who need extensive dental care, Dr. Yeh received his prosthodontics certificate from University of California, San Francisco in 1994.

Through a combined residency program with the University of California San Francisco and the San Francisco VA Medical Center, Dr. Yeh got the opportunity to expose himself to all kinds of dental implant cases. He then went into basic science research through the oral biology program at UCSF. He focused on cell surface receptor related with force transduction and got his PhD in 2002. Dr. Yeh helped to establish this clinic since then and is currently a clinic instructor in the dental school of the University of the Pacific, San Francisco.

To extend beyond his restorative training in dental implants, Dr. Yeh has continued his education through postgraduate studies in surgical implant placement, sinus and bone graft procedures, immediate implant placement, and soft tissue management.
