Fall Conference Speaker Spotlight: William Hang, DDS

Dr. Hang has been practicing dentistry / orthodontics for over 40 years, after graduating number one in the class of 1970 at the University of Illinois College of Dentistry.   Dr. Hang emphasizes early recognition and treatment of orthodontic problems, and he also treats many adult patients who are using orthodontics to have their mouths and smiles restored.  Ultimately, it is poor oral posture (improper jaw, tongue, lip, and cheek posture) that causes poor facial balance and crooked teeth. Another segment of his adult practice involves patients who come to him to alleviate Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).  Improving the airway through orthodontics or orthodontics and surgery can improve someone’s quality and quantity of life.
