Dr. William Cheung & Associates traces its roots back to the 1950's, when we began our prevention-focused dental practice in the old Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Building in Central, Hong Kong's business district.
Upon completion of his training in the U.S. in 1982, Dr. William Cheung joined the practice established by Dr. Philip Chan and his uncle, the late Dr. Kenneth Chaun. Dr. Chan retired in 1994, and since then Dr. Cheung has expanded the practice into a multi-specialty group practice, bringing together various specialists under one roof in order to best serve your needs.
We are proud to have continually cared for many generations of patients over the past 60 years. At the same time, we also eagerly welcome our new patients to become a part of our legacy, and we trust that you will be satisfied under our care for the years to come.
Our practice is built on referrals, and you can help us continue to build our future!
Periodic oral assessment
Getting regular dental check-ups allows our dentists to monitor your oral condition, and identify and treat problems early. Most people should see a dentist twice a year, but there is some variation, we will recommend an ideal check-up interval for you based on your oral hygiene level and your risk of tooth decay and gum disease, in conjunction with our clinical findings.
Caries risk assessment
The dental equivalent of "individualized medicine" where we consider multiple factors to determine your risk of tooth decay. This allows us to personalize treatment just for you.
Periodontal risk assessment
Similar to the concept of caries risk assessment, we combine our clinical observations with a personalized interview to determine your risk of gum disease. This way we can prescribe you the perfect regimen to keep your gums healthy.
Oral cancer screening
Early detection is key! We examine every patient at every check-up visit for abnormal growths, because the sooner a suspicious area is discovered, the better the chances of isolating and eliminating this disease.
What you eat, and how you eat it, affects not only your physical health but also your oral health as well. Our dentists and hygienist are happy to discuss your eating habits with you and give you some helpful tips on how to protect your teeth and gums and help them stay healthy.
Oral hygiene instructions
As children, one of the first things we learn how to do by ourselves is brushing our teeth. Over time, we each develop our own home care habits, which may not always result in excellent oral hygiene. Let our dentists and hygienist give you a refresher course on the products and techniques you can use to take great care of your teeth and gums at home!
Scaling & polishing
These components of a professional cleaning effectively remove bacterial plaque and tartar from the surfaces of your teeth, resulting in healthier gums and reduced instances of tooth decay.
Topical fluoride application
Once thought to be only beneficial in children and adolescents, the modern concept of preventive dentistry acknowledges that adults at risk of tooth decay can also benefit from periodic fluoride application. Professional application of fluoride has no documented risk of causing fluoride poisoning.
Fissure sealant application
Pits and fissures occur on the chewing surfaces of our back teeth. Sealants are applied over these crevices to prevent food particles from getting trapped, which may result in tooth decay. Sealants have proven to be the most cost-effective method of preventing tooth decay, and can be placed starting from 6 years of age.
