Dang did his undergraduate education at Taipei Medical University and then moved to the United States to pursue further education, successively earning an M.A. from Columbia University, a Ph.D. from the City University of New York, and a M.P.H. from the Harvard School of Public Health.
Dang was appointed Minister for the Environment (heading the Environmental Protection Administration) by Chen Shui-bian after the 2004 elections, and renounced his U.S. citizenship to take up the position. His work as minister earned him the nickname "the over-educated garbage man". He served in the position until 2008, when he was succeeded by Stephen Shen.
