Why Choose Our Bellevue Orthodontist?
You’ll experience individualized care immediately; we'll prioritize your needs and focus on your unique oral and facial characteristics.
Our Philosophy of Care
WE BELIEVE IN:
Customized Plans: Individualizing treatment plans to achieve the best results through prioritizing different needs and focusing on everyone’s unique oral and facial characteristics.
Pursuing Excellence: We pursue excellence in treatment for healthy and beautiful smiles through constant learning and application of the most effective technologies, new methods, and new materials in a comfortable, friendly, pleasant and relaxed environment.
What Sets Us Apart?
Dr. Teng holds three degrees: DDS (5 years in school), Master of Science in Oral Physiology and Jaw Joints (3 years), and Master of Arts in Orthodontics (3 years). Therefore, he approaches orthodontics with an emphasis on the systematic harmony of teeth alignment, the bite, jaw muscles, and jaw joint function.
Dr. Teng is constantly learning, researching, and studying to improve techniques to serve his patients better. Every year, D. Teng earns continuing education credits twice as much as the requirements of the state regulatory agency.
Multiple Choices for Different Needs
We use the smallest yet most effective metal brackets for comfort; offer clear ceramic brackets for aesthetic appearance, and use Invisalign appliances for comfort, convenience, and aesthetics. Dr. Teng completed the Invisalign Masters Series program.
Simple but Effective
We pursue the best results through the simplest approach possible to reduce patients’ visits and discomfort.
Fewer Extractions, if at All Possible
We avoid extracting teeth to achieve a full smile for our patients.
We have the state-of-the-art facilities, the newest digital x-rays, and a digital intra-oral scanner (iTero Element), which replaces the old ways of taking molds of teeth.
Inclusive Treatment Fees
Treatment fees include all office visits, emergency care, one set of upper and lower retainers, and retainer checks for one year.
Trust of Local Dentists
Dr. Teng has treated many local dentists, their spouses, and/or their children.
Patient and Friend Referrals
More than half of our patients were referred by existing patients, parents, and friends, showing their great trust in us.
We focus on prevention of dental diseases and promotion of healthy teeth. We encourage our patients to have a lifelong habit of practicing good oral hygiene.
Supporting Local Communities
We support our local communities, such Hazelwood, Newport Heights, and Somerset Elementary Schools, Hengda Dancing Academy, and Seattle Union Gospel Mission, through sponsorships and donations.
‘‘As a colleague, I feel that Dr. Teng is incredibly knowledgeable and his ability to provide the best achievable results is second to none. I would feel very comfortable if Dr. Teng were my orthodontist.’’
- Stephen Andersen, DDS (Cosmetic and Family Dentistry)
