About Us

When you think of a dental office, what do you imagine? A sterile waiting room with tattered magazines from 2003? A bin of grimy children’s toys in the corner? Awkward elevator music? Get ready to 100% change your vision of what it means to go to the dentist. As soon as you walk into our warm and inviting waiting room, you’ll be met with a complimentary beverage bar. You’ll check in with our guest coordinator and take a seat in a luxurious massage chair. While you relax for a few minutes, we’ll gather some information on how you like to be treated–what you loved about your past dental treatment, and what you didn’t– so we can customize your experience with us. If you’re on a tight schedule, we’ll skip the chitchat.

One of our core beliefs is the 70-30 rule: we’ll spend 70% of our time listening to what you want and 30% sharing our opinions. If you usually dread dental care, Inertia Dental aims to be the place that changes your feelings. Our compassionate, skilled team of dental professionals is standing by!

Meet Dr. Van Tang, DMD, Resident Pediatric Dentist

Dr. Tang knew she wanted to be a Pediatric Dentist after realizing the importance of early intervention and education while completing her doctorate of medicine at University of Nevada. She had extreme anxiety about going to the dentist as a child and her parents didn’t have enough dental education to take her for preventive visits – just when she complained about a toothache. Dr. Tang has a passion for changing her patients’ attitudes toward dentistry early so they can start taking care of their teeth to avoid long-term complications. She is currently furthering her expertise as a Pediatric Dentist resident at Boston University.

Parents can expect Dr. Tang to take her time with their children, especially special-needs patients, to go over preventative dental care. Dr. Tang’s ultimate goal is to get patients out of pain and help them understand that good oral hygiene habits are key to confident and healthy smiles. She loves meeting new children and hearing about their hobbies, and also seeing returning patients and hearing about the changes they have made to their dental care at home.

Don’t be surprised if you run into Dr. Tang at a Starbucks. She never turns down a trip to Starbucks with her friends. She also loves traveling and being the “go-to” person her friends and family can rely on.

Brittany’s goal is to take the appointment at her patients’ pace, resulting in that patient returning, because they feel more comfortable in her chair than anywhere else.

When Brittany isn’t working she spends her spare time with family and loves their weekly Sunday lunch get-togethers.

Bethany Jenna DaSilva

Front Office Admin

Bethany grew up in Billerica, MA and landed her first dental job at a dental practice right out of high school in 2014. Although this was supposed to be just a temporary job, here she is still enjoying her fulfilling dental career.

Bethany’s favorite thing about this job is being part of a team whose focus and goal is to make people feel better! She loves going home at the end of a long day knowing they helped someone, whether it be by taking them out of pain or just easing some dental anxiety they may have had before coming in. Bethany also loves working in a dental office that is equipped with cutting edge technology, where you really do get the best care there is to offer!
Bethany has a little dachshund named Pretzel, who takes up most of her time. They like to garden, bake, sew, crochet, watch the birds and snuggle. Bethany and Pretzel also love sports and all things Disney!

Our Dog Team


Lazy Girl

Sage is a lazy girl–but in all the best ways. She is fast, graceful, and a bit of an escape artist, but she is a gentle couch potato at heart.She’s a bit of a princess and refuses to lie down on hard surfaces–only blankets, pillows, and soft dog beds for this girl. Sage loves to snuggle and will rest her face on your leg and give full-force puppy-dog eyes until you let her join you on the bed or sofa. Sage loves to make people feel welcome and relaxed.


Good Boy

Echo is a good boy (most of the time) but has a rascally streak and is the troublemaker of the two furry team members. He is two years younger and over 15 pounds heavier than Sage, but he has no idea how big he is and thinks he is a lap dog. Echo is funny and silly–he loves making people laugh. One of his quirks is that he sleeps on his back with his legs sticking straight up in the air. He is loyal, calm, and makes our patients feel at ease.
