Dr. Greg Lang
Dr. Greg Lang obtained his undergraduate degree in Biology at Canisius College in Buffalo, New York. He then went on to secure a one year research position in Washington, DC with the Food and Drug Administration. Following his research at the FDA, he earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Virginia Commonwealth University, where he met his wife, and dental team mate, Dr. Jess! Following dental school, they chose to further their dental education by attending an Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) residency program through Mt. Edgecumbe Hospital, located in Sitka, Alaska. Not only did this residency afford them the opportunity to significantly expand their scope of practice, but they got the chance to live and explore in Southeast Alaska! Dr. Greg recognizes that we live in an incredibly exciting era of dentistry in which technology is greatly impacting the way in which dentists practice. He is confident that his education has enabled him to deliver an excellent level of care aided by the latest advancements in dentistry. It is a dream come true for Dr. Greg, to return to, and serve, the very community in which he grew up. In his free time, Dr. Greg would describe himself as an avid outdoorsman. He loves to fish, golf, camp, hike and be out on the water. On windy days you may see him and his Dad, Dr. Gary Lang, kitesurfing out at Durand beach and on calmer days you may see them chipping golf balls back and forth to each other in the yard. While in Alaska, Dr. Greg and Dr. Jess hiked every published trail in the Sitka vicinity, including the 14 mile hike up the dormant Mt. Edgecume volcano. He is energetic, adventurous, and fun to be around.
Born and raised in a small town, Amherst, Virginia, Dr. Jessica Lang is a true example of southern hospitality. If you listen closely, you might even hear that sweet southern drawl. Dr. Jess attended Sweet Briar College, in Virginia, for her undergraduate education where she graduated Cum Laude, earning a BS in Biology. During her time at Sweet Briar she expressed early interest in caring for others by volunteering as an EMT with the local rescue squad. Following SBC, she attended Virginia Commonwealth University for her Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree. If you ask, she will tell you how her and her husband, turn dental partner, Dr. Greg Lang, met the first day of dental school. Following VCU, Dr. Jess experienced a once-in a lifetime opportunity to further her training by moving to Sitka, Alaska to practice dentistry at Mt. Edgecumbe Hospital for an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency. While working in Sitka, Dr. Jess and Greg performed complex dental procedures. Although they both miss living in Sitka, they are both excited to be back in Rochester, NY surrounded by family and friends. Dr. Jess believes she offers dentistry in a comforting environment with a gentle and caring touch. One of her favorite aspects of general dentistry is that she has the opportunity to form life-long relationships with her patients. This translates to highly personalized and comforting care. Outside of dentistry, Dr. Jess enjoys anything to do with the outdoors. She’s an avid runner, hiker and skier. She also loves cooking and baking, and since we did say she has southern hospitality running through her veins, there is a good chance you will sample some of her baked goods.
