Meet Dr. Estee Wang
On Being an Orthodontist
I love being an orthodontist! It is a profession that allows me to make such a difference in the lives of my patients. Orthodontic treatment produces a more harmonious and healthy bite and also a beautiful smile that improves self confidence to last a life time. It is truly a privilege for me to serve my patients, by striving to provide the best possible care with attention to detail and personalized focus.
One of the best parts of being an orthodontist is celebrating with my patients the day their braces come off. It is wonderful to see their beautiful smiling faces and to see them through their smile and life transformations. It is my goal to provide the best orthodontic treatment in a positive and stress-free environment. — Dr. Estee Wang

Dr. Wang is a board certified orthodontist, a voluntary certification by the American Board of Orthodontists that requires passing a rigorous written exam and an oral examination with presentation of real patient cases. Throughout the year, Dr. Wang participates in many hours of continuing education, attending meetings and lectures as well as hands-on demonstrations. She also stays up to date with research findings published in orthodontic and oral healthcare journals. Because orthodontics is a constantly evolving field, research and technology increasingly enables orthodontists to provide treatments that are more effective, comfortable, and efficient for their patients.
In addition, Dr. Wang is a Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Minnesota’s Department of Orthodontics, where she is a member of the Cleft Lip/Palate team and supervises the orthodontic treatment of cleft lip palate patients with the orthodontic residents. She is also currently the Chair of the Education Committee of the Minnesota Association of Orthodontists and is on the Executive Council of the Saint Paul District Dental Society.
