Dr. Shuran Liang, or Dr. Shu as he likes to be called, spent the first 8 years of his life growing up in Yunnan, a southern state of China before moving to Canada with his parents. His initial interest in working with the pediatric population came from taking care of and connecting with his baby brother who is 10 years younger. By applying the same work ethic he saw in his parents, Dr. Shu was able to attend the prestigious Washington University in St. Louis where he graduated with a BA in Biology - Biochemistry Track. He later pursued and graduated with a DDS degree from New York University College of Dentistry in 2017. Throughout his academic and clinical endeavors, Dr. Shu always knew he wanted to work with kids but also be in a profession where he can be a positive impact to the community. With the support of his mentors, friends, and family, Dr. Shu applied for and was accepted to train at NYU Langone Dental Medicine San Diego Pediatric Dental Residency. For the next two years, Dr. Shu soaked up as much knowledge as he could and pushed himself to be comfortable in treating the whole spectrum that pediatric patients can come in. After graduating with a Certificate in Advanced Education in Pediatric Dentistry, Dr. Shu along with his beautiful and gifted wife moved to Chicago Illinois in June, 2019.
Dr. Shu is super excited to provide ideal and personalized care to the pediatric dental patients at Just for Kids. He is proficient in Mandarin. His main goal is to create a comfortable and fun environment while addressing his patient’s dental needs. Dr. Shu hopes to achieve this with his enthusiasm, patience, developing singing ability, and previously acquired dance skills with the Just for Kids family.
