Special Areas of Interest

Dr Meng has been focusing on general and cosmetic dental services for the last 30 years. She has a particular interest in cosmetic dentistry and smile makeovers.

Dr Meng’s Holistic Philosophy of Care

With a vision of creating individual and relaxing treatments for her patients, Dr Meng understands the close connection between the mouth and body.

“I feel that dentists are seen by most of the public as carpenters of the mouth … concerned with the mechanics of teeth only.” Dr Meng says this needs to change and that dentists “… should partner with physicians and physical therapists to provide holistic care that delivers results for the patient, both physiologically and mentally.”

Dr Meng knows nutrition is an essential factor in enhancing the health of mouth and body and breathing. She shares what she knows with her patients so they can understand the importance of balancing life with good health. Dr Meng aims to provide not only the best quality dentistry but also the best treatment experience.

She has helped change lives and her patients’ wellbeing with her holistic approach.

Helping Patients Feel Comfortable

t’s no surprise that many patients have dental anxiety. Such nervousness could be due to a negative experience that they had, perhaps as a child. Dr Meng has a personal commitment since graduation to help patients overcome their fear of dental treatment. This is proven by the large number of patients that continue to see her for over 10 years and come from interstate and overseas.

I pride myself in helping people get over their dental phobias. I studied hypnotherapy after graduating. As a result, I have some wonderful tools to help people work on their fears.
