Immediately following dental school, Dr. Liang spent two years at the University of Connecticut where he completed both a residency and a fellowship in the Advanced Education in General Dentistry program. It was during this time in Connecticut that he realized his passion for endodontics. Dr. Liang then attended the University of Illinois at Chicago where he completed his advanced specialty training in Endodontics.

In his free time, Dr. Liang enjoys spending time with his wife, Jennifer, and his daughter, Caitlyn. He is also an avid car fan, and enjoys snowboarding and video games.
Dr. Liang is a Fellow of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada and a licensed Certified Specialist in Endodontics in BC. The Royal College of Dentists of Canada is an organization that ensures high standards of specialization in the dental profession and recognizes properly trained dental specialists through comprehensive written, oral and case portfolio examinations.
Dr. Liang has also successfully completed the Board Certification process with the American Board of Endodontics and has been declared Board Certified by the directors of the ABE. This challenging certification process was voluntary but is an indication of Dr. Liang's commitment to the specialty of endodontics and the desire to practice evidence-based dentistry. This required a review of the applicant's education and successful completion of a three-part examination process. The purpose of the ABE is to assure the public that the endodontists it certifies have demonstrated exceptional knowledge, skill and expertise in the specialty of endodontics and to progressively raise the quality of patient care.
He is proud to be part of a very select group of less than ten endodontists in British Columbia that are both a Fellow of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada and a Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics.
