    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Ling Zhan is a pediatric dentist who cares for children and adolescents at both the Mission Bay and Parnassus campuses. Her treatment philosophy is very prevention-oriented. She works closely with her patients and their families to identify risk factors for common dental diseases, such as dental caries, and to adopt scientifically-based preventive and treatment regimens to avoid future diseases. Her practice provides routine as well as complex care, including care for children with dental or medical conditions who require treatment under sedation or general anesthesia. She works closely with other dental specialties to treat children with complex dental disease, such as amenogenesis imperfecta.

    In addition to patient care and education, Zhan conducts clinical and translational research projects that are focused on microbiological aspects of tooth decay; oral prevention programs guided by risk assessment; and identification of protocols to prevent or eliminate dental caries in children.

    Zhan completed her pediatric dentistry residency training at UCSF. She is a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and a diplomat of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
