Meet Dr. Wendy
Dr. Wanyun (Wendy) Xue was born in Shanghai, China and came to the U.S. (New York) at age 9. She grew up on the east coast and has been involved with children from her young teenage years: being a camp counselor, tutor and volunteering at the hospital. Dr. Wendy completed her bachelor's degree from Cornell University in 2002 and went forward to obtain D.D.S from Columbia University in 2007, and finally finished her training in the specialty of Pediatric Dentistry in 2009 at UMDNJ.
Dr. Wendy takes a rather conservative approach to dentistry and believes that prevention should be the main goal in the field of pediatrics. She believes in not only educating the parents in caries prevention, but also in building a positive and trusting relationship with the children. "Establishing a dental home early in a child's life is the most important factor in preventing disease and creating a comfortable environment for patients". "Dental fear is something that can develop at an extremely young age and continue into adulthood, and I believe that building relationships while treating disease will prevent that."
Dr. Wendy is also experienced in treating children with special needs. Dr Wendy is licensed to practed in New Jersey and New York, and is also licensed to provide oral conscious sedation as a treatment option.
