Meet Janet Cheong DMD
Dentist Palo Alto, CA
For me, dentistry represents the perfect blend of art and science. My fascination with both fields began early, leading me to pursue a degree in microbiology at the University of Iowa, where I graduated with honors. My passion for blending aesthetic creativity with scientific precision naturally guided me to dentistry, culminating in a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from Harvard University in 2008.
The commencement of my dental career was marked by a profound commitment to community service. I initiated my professional journey at a community health center in the greater Boston area, focusing on providing essential dental care to the underserved. This experience not only shaped my clinical skills but also reinforced my dedication to making a difference in people's lives through dentistry.
Upon moving to the Bay area in 2021, I have continued to serve the community as a general dentist at a local clinic and as a clinical instructor, imparting knowledge and skills to dental students from the University of Pacific and UCSF dental schools. My practice philosophy centers on disease prevention, conservative treatment, and the cultivation of meaningful relationships with my patients.
I find deep satisfaction in the art of smile transformation—each case is a unique opportunity to enhance a patient's confidence and quality of life. My approach to dental care is comprehensive, focusing on the whole person, not just their oral health.
Outside the office, I'm an avid amateur artist and enjoy spending time in the kitchen, creating dishes for family and friends. My love for the outdoors is expressed through cycling, tennis, skiing, and snowboarding, activities that I cherish sharing with my husband. These pursuits not only provide a creative outlet but also a sense of balance and wellbeing.
I am thrilled to be a part of Palo Alto Oral Health , embracing the opportunity to contribute to our community's health and wellbeing. I look forward to forming lasting connections with my patients, guiding them towards optimal oral health and beautiful smiles.
