TEDxBGSU, a local and independently organized TEDx event at Bowling Green State University, seeks to amplify the voices of students, faculty, staff, and community members of Bowling Green, Ohio, to share new ideas and inspire change.

Dr. Jung’s idea worth spreading is that “the most important function of the teeth is to develop and stabilize the craniofacial structure-to simply hold your skull, so your brain can function properly.”

Her talk received great praise from YouTube viewers:

“I love this notion of a dental visit being connected to the entire body. It makes sense because our body is one unit working together, not segregated parts that act independently. Thank you for the insightful information, Dr. Jung!”

“Amazing insight!! Never known that our teeth are intricately linked to the cranial system has eluded me till now. I am certain whenever I look at my teeth I will remember your teaching for sure! Thank you, Dr. Jung!!!!”

“Her story of overcoming challenges as a first-generation immigrant and pursuing her dream of becoming a dentist is truly inspiring… Jiyoung reminds us to prioritize our oral health for a lifetime of well-being. Thank you, Jiyoung Jung, for sharing your knowledge and empowering us to take better care of our teeth for a healthier future!”

A true expert, Dr. Jung has been trained with experts in cranial, focusing on the airway, sleep, and craniofacial construction. She has collaborated with chiropractors, myofunctional therapists, nutritionists, and other physicians to treat the whole body.

She’s also been selected as Best Dentist in D Magazine for 2021, 2022, and 2023 for her work in the Dallas Fort Worth area.

Born and raised in Seoul, South Korea, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in child psychology and education, her talk was released just in time to honor her during Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month.

“I’m currently working on an upcoming memoir, which will be launched in AAPI Heritage Month in 2025, on Sleep Apnea Awareness Day,” announced Dr. Jung.

After moving to the United States with her family in 1997, Dr. Jung received a Bachelor of Arts with honors in biology at the University of Texas at Dallas, where she graduated on the Dean’s Honor List.
