Dr. Ding is a graduate from Rowan University in 2010 with a bachelor of science in biology. He later applied and was accepted into Temple University Kornberg School of Dentistry in 2012. During his time at temple, he also participated in numerous dental charity events. Dr. Ding was selected amongst his Temple peers to travel to Haiti for a dental mission trip. He was a part of the Haiti Health Foundation and performed oral surgery in the rural area of Jeremie, Haiti. After the earthquake in Haiti, their capability to provide quality medical care has been limited even after years later. Dr. Ding and his colleagues were the only dental providers the Haitian people would see for the entire year. He found that this was an eye opening experience to help others who were less fortunate.
After dental school, he later pursued a one year residency at Monmouth Medical Hospital located in Long Branch, New Jersey. His residency at Monmouth Medical helped to further evolve his skillset and expertise. At Monmouth Medical, he treated patients of all ages, including special needs and medically compromised patients in the operating room.
