Lesley Y. Jeong, DDS, MS
I love getting to know my patients and their families on a personal basis. My patients truly care about their dental health, and I love helping them attain their perfect smile. When patients come in with their whole family, I get the chance to know the people in my community, and that always makes my day. My work makes a positive difference in the lives of my patients, and that makes my work truly rewarding!
Education and Continuing Education
Prior to becoming an orthodontist, I attained my Undergraduate Degree at UC Berkeley, then finished Dental School at the UCLA School of Dentistry. I earned my Orthodontic Certificate through the University of Southern California Graduate Orthodontic Program, and also graduated with a Masters Degree in Craniofacial Biology.
Although my formal education is complete, I am always looking for new ways to give our patients comfortable and efficient orthodontic treatment. I believe Invisalign® orthodontic aligners provide wonderful treatment plans for the patient, and offer more options to straighten teeth without conventional braces. I take classes in perfecting my technique in Invisalign treatments, and always want to provide the highest quality services for each patient.
As a part of my continuing education, I am active in the following professional organizations:
- American Board of Orthodontists
- American Association of Orthodontics
- Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontics
- American Dental Association
- California Dental Association
- San Gabriel Valley Dental Society
In the Practice
In my line of work, I get to see the results of what I do. I enjoy getting to know our patients personally, and catching up on their lives while I straighten their smiles. I love smiling and laughing, and I love creating perfect smiles for our patients! I appreciate that our patients and families take the time for orthodontics, making appointments and keeping up with their hygiene to help make their treatment more efficient.
I grew up in Los Angeles area. My husband, Craig Cheung, is also my orthodontic partner in our practice, and we have one daughter and one son. When I am not in the practice, I enjoy spending quality time with my family.
