I would recommend Dr. Cheng and his staff to everyone. They are caring and very professional about what they do and I myself has great results after less than 2 years of treatment. Thanks Cheng orthodontics

My son Nick is a college student 2,000+ miles away from home who needed to have his broken orthodontic retainer repaired/replaced. In searching for someone who could help him, I came upon Dr. Cheng. After reading through numerous stellar reviews and speaking with his front office assistant Amy, I felt confident that they would take great care of my son. Within 2 days Nick was seen and his appliance. We are extremely impressed by Dr. Cheng and his staff as well as the state of the art office!

Dr. Cheng and his staff are extremely kind, helpful, and clear about what needs to be done as well as what is to be done. I have such confidence in his work as well as that of his staff, I will be returning with my other child. We drive for an hour to get to each appointment, and it is totally worth it. Thank you for your excellent work!

Cheng Orthodontics did an amazing job on my daughter's teeth. She has a beautiful smile. The staff is always cheerful and friendly. The waiting area had games and movies. My daughter never complained about going in for a visit. She only complained she didn't get to spend more time in the waiting room.

Great office-have sung their praises to others as well! Dr Cheng has done amazing work with my teeth/smile and it's not even done yet-cannot wait to wear ?? The finished product. I was a difficult case and he did what several other orthodontists did not want to try and I am more than pleased. My daughter is also seeing dr Cheng for her braces and it has been great. It has been easy to schedule appointments and we love love love the staff.
