He earned his DMD degree from the University of Pittsburgh with the highest honor, Omicron Kappa Upsilon, as well as Dr. W. Arthur George Prosthodontic Award and Brian D. Stone Memorial Award. Dr. Tian then completed a one year general dentistry residency at the Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, NY.

Dr. Tian got to know dentistry from his mom, a pediatric dentist in China, and is very proud to be a part of this profession. Dr. Tian takes patients’ comfort and high quality of care as a priority and he has spent hundreds of hours in continuing education to become a better dentist everyday.
