Cheng Miao

Periodontist DDS


"I will always put your best interests first. You can rest assured that I will listen sincerely and address your concerns. I will explain every step of the process behind restoring the dental health of your gum tissue and bone levels."



My favorite hobby is home improvement. I like to create things with my hands.


I am kind and honest. I always try a holistic approach when it comes to delivering patient care. When I see changes in my patients' brushing habits and improvement in the health of their tissue and bone, it is a very rewarding experience to know I affected their quality of life.
