Western Dental & Orthodontics today announced the appointment of Dr. Zhi Meng as Executive Vice President, Clinical Care.

Reporting to the Chief Operating Officer, Dr. Meng has overall responsibility for operational support in the field and corporate office for general dentistry, orthodontics and all dental specialties, including pediatric dentistry.

Dr. Meng joined Western Dental in 1994 as an Associate Dentist. She was a practicing dentist for 12 years before taking a leadership role in operations as a Clinical Director. She later led the development of the organization’s extensive orthodontic program – now the largest in the United States – and then, as Senior Vice President, Specialty Services, developed and operationally supported the extensive network that serves the specialty needs of patients in 325 Western Dental, Brident and Vital Smiles offices in California, Texas, Arizona, Alabama and Nevada.

Earlier in her career, Dr. Meng taught at the UCLA Dental School, where she also conducted oral cancer research, and at the UCLA Medical School as an Oral Pathology Specialist. Dr. Meng has been a licensed dentist in California since 1994.

“Dr. Meng is an exceptionally capable leader who always puts quality patient care as the highest priority,” said Daniel D. Crowley, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Western Dental. “Her clinical background, operational experience and commitment to excellence make her a great fit for this leadership role, and we are happy to celebrate another promotion in her distinguished career here.”

“Western Dental and its Brident and Vital Smiles affiliates support high-quality, affordable and accessible oral health care, often in underserved communities,” said Dr. Meng. “It is an honor to support this important work, and I am proud to be part of this team.”
