His interest in oral surgery continued to develop during his dental training at prestigious UCSF and he pursued specialized training in oral and maxillofacial surgery after graduating from UCSF dental school.
Dr. Ji enjoys being an oral surgeon for the simple fact that he enjoys helping patients. He finds his job incredibly rewarding because he gets to do what he loves every day. He views each patient as his own family and works diligently to help each patient regain comfort and dental health.
