Dentistry is a multifaceted profession that involves communicating with people of many backgrounds. In dentistry, empathy is important when treating patients so that patient-doctor relationships can be strengthened. Dr. Cheng’s passion is to blend art and medicine in dentistry to address patients’ oral health.
There is no single approach for every individual; Dr. Cheng have been trained to use different disciplines and perspectives taught in dentistry to help tailor treatment for patients with different dental issues.
Originally from the East coast, his educational background includes a bachelor’s in Biology from the University of Maryland. He also has a Master’s in Biomedical Sciences from Tufts University. After his Master’s, he received his dental degree from New York University College of Dentistry and subsequently enrolled in a 1-year Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency program at the Eastman Institute for Oral Health in Rochester, New York. It was the residency program where he refined his skills in extractions, root canals, fillings, crowns, and implants. Recently, he attended an international outreach to Mexico where he was able to give back to the community by providing dental services to the underserved population.
In addition, he recently furthered his implant education and training which included traveling overseas to the Dominican Republic to place implants in patients, thus giving back to the local community in the process.
During his free time, he likes to experience different cuisines, travel to different countries, and visit museums to keep his mind entertained. He is also an NBA fan (Go Houston Rockets)! As a bilingual (English and Chinese 中文), he is always open to learning different languages and cultures. Seeing patients from different backgrounds enriches the interaction as he can learn about other’s upbringing.
