Dr. Tien Jiang received her bachelor of arts from Dartmouth College in linguistics and French. She then pursued dentistry at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine (HSDM). While a pre-doctoral student, Dr. Jiang became interested in dental education, and was selected as a fellow in the Academic Dental Careers Fellowship Program through the American Dental Education Association. After graduating cum laude and earning a doctor of dental medicine degree at HSDM, Dr. Jiang moved to the Midwest to specialize in prosthodontics at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). During her residency, Dr. Jiang also completed a master of education in instructional leadership at the UIC College of Education. Her research involved evaluating UIC’s pre-doctoral small group learning curriculum, as well as a review of dental faculty retention and recruitment methods.
Dr. Jiang returns to HSDM as an instructor in the department of oral health policy and epidemiology. She is conducting research and participating in activities at the Center for Integration of Primary Care and Oral Health, which is supported by Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). She is also involved with the Office of Global and Community Health on curricular reform in dental education in Vietnam. Furthermore, Dr. Jiang teaches in the pre-doctoral pre-clinic and clinic, and sees her own patients in HSDM’s faculty group practice. In the spring of 2019, Dr. Jiang was awarded the Massachusetts Dental Society’s Ten under 10 Award for her contributions to her profession, the community, and organized dentistry. At the same time, her students recognized her teaching efforts with HSDM’s Outstanding Teaching Faculty Award
