Tina Chung, DMD
Dr. Chung, born in 1968, is a native of Taiwan. Growing up in Alabama and California, she enjoyed painting, drawing, and building models and crafts. Raised in a scientific family, she realized that she wanted to pursue a career that would incorporate both of these loves, art and science.
In 1989, after three years of college at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, she was awarded the prestigious honor of enrollment into the Early Admissions Program at the University of Alabama School of Dentistry. She combined her final year of college with the first year of dental school in one rigorous program that would enable her to reach her dream a year sooner.
In dental school, Dr. Chung was appointed to a number of academic administrative committees and was heavily involved in dental research. She won many awards in dental research and in academics, at both the dental school and national levels, including The Quintessence Publishing Company’s Award for Excellence in Dental Research, the Dr. Leon H. Schneyer Memorial Award for Excellence in the Dental Basic Sciences, an American College of Dentistry Award for Research Presentation, an American Dental Association/Dentsply Corporation Student Clinician Award, and election to the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honor Society.
While Dr. Chung enjoyed and gained much experience with her academic involvement in dental school, she realized that being able to connect personally with patients on a daily basis gave her the greatest pleasure. She found an artistic passion in being able to transform a patient’s life and confidence level by providing a beautiful and healthy new smile and facial appearance through orthodontic treatment. Dr. Chung completed her orthodontic residency in 1996 and received her master of science certificate in the same year.
Other affiliations and accomplishments include membership in the American Association of Orthodontists, membership in the New Jersey Dental Association, and active participation in the Passaic County Dental Society. She serves on the Board of the Clifton Boys’ and Girls’ Club. She is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics. She is Invisalign® and Invisalign® for Teens certified, as well as iBraces certified.
For most people, achieving a healthy, beautiful smile is the reason for receiving orthodontic care. If you’re self-conscious about your smile, correcting your concerns with braces will greatly improve the way you look and feel.
When your treatment is complete, you will have the smile you’ve always dreamed of and the confidence to show it off! We also want you to feel comfortable and confident throughout your entire orthodontic experience, and our practice is dedicated to making sure that you receive the quality care you deserve.

“Dr. Chung has been truly amazing throughout my orthodontic process. My case was extremely complicated and Dr. Chung still took it on. It was a painful 9 years filled with surgery, however, Dr. Chung helped me through it all. Results were not guaranteed, but with her patience, care, and professionalism, she made it possible for me to get the smile that I always dreamed of. Dr. Chung took on my risky case, and it meant the world to me. She did the impossible and gave me a gorgeous smile.”
“Dr. Chung is a perfectionist and very knowledgeable. She and her staff’s passion to achieve perfect results were exemplary. There are times where I wanted to complete the treatment early, but they pushed me to continue on to achieve a better and healthier result (at no cost to me). The office tries its best to stay on schedule and the wait time is minimal. They also use advanced technology for treatment as well as logistics like appointment reminders.”
“I would strongly recommend my family and friends to Dr. Chung because she is very nice to patients and explains her very good treatment planning. My kids and I have been her patients for about 25 years and are very satisfied.”
