Ted Ling, DDS

Profiles in Dentistry 2020

Murphy Dental & Implant Center

A highly-skilled, board-certified periodontist and implant surgeon, Dr. Ted Ling is in joint practice with his wife, Dr. Jenny Tai, at Murphy Dental & Implant Center. Together, they offer a unique blend of comprehensive dentistry for families, children, and adults, focusing on precision techniques and achieving outstanding results.

Impressive Credentials

Both Dr. Ling and Dr. Tai were born and raised in Taiwan. Dr. Ling earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from the country’s top dental school at National Taiwan University. “I really enjoyed performing surgeries in dental school and found them to be very calming,” he says. He decided to pursue further specialization in periodontics, studying the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal (gum) diseases and supporting structures of the mouth, including the teeth and jawbone, as well as placement of dental implants. An additional three years of specialized study, including residency, were required for Dr. Ling to become a periodontist after dental school. Graduating at the top of his class, he received the Director’s Award for outstanding clinical and academic performance and dedication to patient care. Dr. Ling is certified by the American Board of Periodontology in periodontal and dental implant surgery.

Dr. Ling met Dr. Tai as classmates while in dental school. Nine years later, they married and currently work side by side at Murphy Dental & Implant Center. The COVID-19 pandemic required their office to be closed for two months, allowing them to spend quality time together along with their 16-month-old son, Oliver. As a family, they enjoyed hiking, frequent trips to the park, and watching movies.

Dr. Ling currently serves as a part-time adjunct assistant professor at Texas A&M University College of Dentistry every other week, working with post graduate residents to perform dental implant surgeries.

“I highly recommend Dr. Ted Ling. He is, without a doubt, the best doctor, periodontist, and dentist I have ever encountered. Even though I had very extensive dental work and surgeries, I had very minimal pain and absolutely no complications.”
