Testimonials About Our Rye NY Dentists

We believe that our patients are the best judges of the quality and service of our dentistry in Port Chester, New York. Read what our patients are saying about us below.
  • I was completely at ease during my appointment here. They went to great lengths to make sure I was completely relaxed and comfortable the entire time. The restrooms at this office were spotless. It smelled amazing in there and looked immaculate. It was nice to hear how much the staff respected them. It made me that much more confident that I was under the care of a professional. They have a very good professional reputation. I know that I'm under the care of an expert. I spend a little too much time in the waiting room. I've waited longer at other offices, but I was hoping to be seen sooner.

  • It all started with our daughter Helene, in regard to the dental practice of Dr. Chi Fu. Our daughter spoke so highly of Dr. Fu, and eventually my wife and I experienced the same feelings for him. We are both seniors and have lived a lifetime in Port Chester. I would be safe to say, that our entire experience, from the dental personnel, office manager, technicians, hygienists and Dr. Fu has been one of a positive nature. The on hands manner, in which Dr. Fu gives, is above any other dentist we have dealt with. He truly shows a concern for our well being, and takes the time to explain everything. Our appointments are given in a reasonable time period, and that appears to us, as a sign of accommodations, that were not experienced with our previous dentist. We definitely recommend Dr. Fu and his staff for anyone who is seeking an excellent, reliable dental service.

  • This is a letter of recommendation for my dentist, Dr. Fu, my dental hygienist, Barbara and all the medical staff in the office. My name is Maggie Worell and I have been a patient in this office for many years now. My first connection was with Barbara: she has been my hygienist for more than twenty years. When Barbara went to work for Dr. Fu I followed her to that office. It was one of the wiser decisions I have made with regard to my health care. My teeth have always been problematic. Barbara has been responsible for the healthy condition of my gums. She is a diligent hygienist. Her attention to detail goes way beyond the norm! You can tell she likes her job and it comes through in her performance. Dr. Fu is a skillful dentist. He is patient and thorough. He does not rush to a conclusion but rather with take his time and consider all the possibilities. He always tries to ease your anxiety. It is a big job when it comes to me and he is quite successful. Also the cosmetic work that he has done looks very natural. Dr. Fu is also one of the kindest dentists that I have known. Needless to say that at my age I have known a few and I can tell you that Dr. Fu really cares about his patients. In fact Dr. Fu's first task was to undo the poor dentistry of my former dentist. This involved root canal work gone bad and was quite complicated. He handled it in a professional and caring manner. He immediately gained my trust and it has never wavered since then. More than once I have had to make an emergency appointment and I have received incredible attention from all the office staff. Dr. Fu sets a high standard in the office and that kindness and caring shines through with all of the staff! Finally I no longer reside in the New York area. A dental appointment is a trip for me. Nevertheless I would not think of finding a new dentist. I know what good dentistry is and it is a time commitment I am willing to make.

  • Dear Dr. Fu and team, Thank you so much for the great job you did with my laminates and crowns. I have a new smile!!

  • Dear Dr. Fu, I have been seeing you for over five years as my dentist and what a difference you and your staff have made in my life. Just walking into your office I feel at home with a wealth of greetings from you and the staff you work with. The technology in the office is all state-of-the-art as compared to the last dentist I worked with who still had charts that were handwritten. Your friendly personality and warm nature comes across through the everyday work you do and makes a difference in developing relationships with your patients. For many people going to the dentist is a scary experience; I have been blessed because going to your office is a pleasure and something I look forward to. Thank you for all of the great work you have done. My trust in you has enabled me to refer family, friends and co-workers to you to which speaks volumes of your practice. Keep up the excellent work you do ... it makes a difference in the lives of others. I love to smile and the work you and your staff have done makes me smile even more.
    - Janet Smith
  • Like many people, going to the dentist is not one of my favorite things! However, Dr. Chi Fu and his friendly office and dental assisting staff consistently make my visits a pleasant and relaxing experience. Dr. Fu is always patient, careful, and has excellent professional skills. I strongly recommend him without hesitation if you are in need of dental services.
    - Charles Coletti
  • Having dental work performed in the past was always agonizing for me and quite frankly, I'd rather have had surgery than dental work! With that in mind, I just want to thank you for all the beautiful dental work you have done on my teeth since last August. I've had several old crowns removed and replaced because of receding gums, my teeth whitened, a root canal performed and 7 veneers done on my upper front teeth. All of this work has greatly improved the appearance of my teeth, which were crooked and discolored, I no longer get food caught between my teeth, and I love my new appearance. When I look in the mirror, I can't believe it's my smile. I am a true believer that your teeth can make you look a lot older than your actual years and my new smile makes me look a good 10 years younger than I actually am! I know it's important to keep your teeth healthy and in good shape because bad teeth can lead to gum disease and even heart problems. But when the word "dentist" was ever spoken in my presence, I would cringe and hope another tooth wouldn't break, a cavity become apparent, or a filling fall out. I am so grateful that Dr. Oen decided to expand his practice by taking you on as his partner and turning over my dental care to you. I actually learned to relax in the chair while you performed all of the dental work on me over the past 10 months. You're gentle technique while working on my teeth has changed me from a nervous wreck in the chair into someone who could almost fall asleep while you're drilling and filling. And, you and Dr. Oen have a terrific staff assisting you and it's a pleasure not to have to wait past my appointment time. I would highly recommend Chester Hill Dental to everyone.

  • When I was referred to Dr. Fu's office, by my sister Kerry, for dental care, I was so happy that the staff was so friendly and laid back. Dr. Fu is the nicest dentist. After a tew visits, I asked him for a consultation for Invisalign. Since I was a child I've always hated my teeth. Dr. Fu explained the whole process of Invisalign. It really seemed very simple. I liked the fact that they were clear, removable and convenient. Now that the procedure is done I can't say enough how happy I am with the results. For the first time I'm not ashamed of my teeth. Thanks for everything, Dr. Fu; I'm actually proud of my smile now!
    - Daniele Bochicchio
  • I always felt nervous and uncomfortable visiting dentists until I met Dr. Fu. I have had many unpleasant experiences, hence my teeth were in dire need of the best dentist I could find. Dr. Fu was recommended to me just in time! I can't thank him enough. Also, my teeth are beautiful now. I can smile again!

Dental Implants: The Best Solution for Missing Teeth

Dental implantsMissing teeth are a problem. Not only does the absence of a tooth affect your appearance, it also impacts the foundation of your smile. If you’re missing a tooth or teeth, you will one day battle a shrinking jaw and the side effect of looking older than you are. Dental implants are a permanent and natural-looking solution, giving you a complete and healthy smile.

How Dental Implants Work

Dental implants can replace any missing tooth permanently. Whether you’re missing a tooth already, or whether you’re looking at a tooth extraction in the near future, a dental implant ensures that the functionality of your smile is well established. By replacing the all-important tooth root that is lost when a tooth is lost, an implant supports and stimulates the jawbone. The abutment of the implant creates a place for a prosthetic tooth to be attached, completing your smile.

Dental implants are not one-size-fits-all. Each prosthetic tooth is customized to blend with your natural teeth so the replacement tooth looks like it has always been part of your smile in shape, size, and color. The implants function as natural teeth and should be cleaned and flossed normally. Recipients of implants can eat whatever they please without worrying about damaging their restorative dental work.

The Dental Implant Procedure

The dental implant procedure is considered an oral surgery. While there are two main components to placing an implant, there several preparations that you may need to undergo first. If a tooth has been newly extracted, the site needs to heal properly first before an implant can be put in place. Likewise, for patients who have undergone gum disease therapy, the gums and mouth need time to heal before you can undergo any advanced dental procedures.

When your mouth is in good condition, it is ready for the dental implant. The anchor of the dental implant is the small, man-made root that will be implanted in the jawbone, taking the place of the missing tooth root. After the surgery site has healed properly and your cosmetic dentist is satisfied that the implant is securely in place and your jawbone has adapted to the implant, a custom-made, artificial tooth is attached to a post inserted in the implant. In some cases, the post can be put in place at the time of the dental implant surgery.

While this procedure may sound like it will leave a patient feeling like their mouth is full of dental repairs, the reality is quite the opposite. A dental implant becomes part of your smile immediately, and simply works the way a natural tooth is supposed to work – without much thought at all.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Obviously, one of the biggest benefits of a dental implant is that it eliminates the hole in your smile, but there are plenty of other perks to replacing missing teeth with dental implants:

Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?

Only your dentist at Chester Hill Dentistry knows for sure if you are a candidate for dental implants, and this determination will be made after a thorough assessment. All restorative dentistry options will be presented to you, so that you can decide what will work best for your lifestyle and budget.

Dentures are also a viable option for replacing missing teeth. But there are major differences between dentures and implants that may make them less desirable. Dental implants do not require adhesives or special cleaning, they look natural, are completely reliable, and aren’t the least bit noticeable or uncomfortable. Dentures are quite the opposite, and they can sometimes fail you at the most important moments.

Dental implants are a permanent, durable alternative to dentures and, with proper care, can last a lifetime. Plus, age is not a factor when it comes to determining who should receive dental implants. Young and old alike have been able to reap the benefits of dental implants.
