Systematic Approach

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.
