Hello and welcome! My name is Dr. Elaine Cheong and I have been practicing general dentistry for 12 years. I began practicing in Seoul, South Korea after graduating from Seoul National University with my dental degree. After moving to the U.S., I completed a dental degree at Loma Linda University in California and practiced general dentistry in Jefferson City for 6 years. In 2005, I opened my own practice here in Columbia and in 2010, we expanded and moved our office to our current Woodrail Centre location. As a dentist, I love having the privilege of helping people achieve beautiful, healthy smiles. Our philosophy is to provide the highest-quality care with gentleness and compassion for our patients and to help them maintain good dental health. I am committed to staying up-to-date with the best ways to administer this philosophy to our patients through continuing education classes and memberships in the American Dental Association, Missouri Dental Association, and Columbia Dental Society. When I am not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my family and gardening.
