Dr. Helen does not waste your time. She’s a very dentist. I would recommend her to my family and friends. However, the staff at the front desk could use more training. While the wait is very brief in the waiting room,I could do without the loud personal cell phone conversations.

I had used a Smyrna area dentist prior to Dr. Cheng. Doctor Cheng is far more personally attentive ( she does the cleanings herself) and she does not push me to have unnecessary dental procedures. Plus her office fees are actuallythe amount contracted by my insurance-so no co-pays for my semi-annual checkups. If you want fancy chairs and decor, plus glossy full color ads, she is not the right dentist for you. If you want a good dentist who will clean your teeth and keep you cavity free at a cost that won't break your bank, YOU HAVE FOUND YOUR NEW DENTIST!

Dr. Cheng is absolutely amazing. I have teeth that are highly sensitive and prone to issues due to genetics, lack of dental insurance for 8 years, medications that cause severe dry mouth and speed up decay, etc. She never made mefeel awful about this as some dentists do, but instead was very understanding and patient. Dr. Cheng worked with me to create a treatment plan, listening to what I wanted to address first and explained ins coverage which helped me feel more comfortable about my situation. She is gentle and efficient in her work, and her staff is just as kind and helpful as she is. I'm greatly looking forward to finally being able to feel confident when I talk to others or smile, as I know I am in good hands with Dr. Cheng!

I had been suffering with a toothache for several days. Dr. Cheng was away. I left a message for her on Friday. On Monday morning my call was returned and Dr. Cheng personally spoke to me about the pain I wasexperiencing . She told me I could come in that day so she could make sure I was relieved of my pain. She actually took the time to do a root canal. I am so appreciative of how she addressed my emergency need. She is very caring toward her patients and that means so much to me. Thank you Dr. Cheng!

Dr. Cheng and her staff have been incredibly professional and courteous on every occasion I've visited. Cheng completely rescued my mouth very quickly which you really appreciate when you've got a mouth full of cavities and not a lot of freetime. All staff have been helpful and I've got to give a shout out to Amanda, Amber, and Charlotte for making the environment so warm and helping me understand my choices.
