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.

  • 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!

Chester Hill Tooth Extractions

Tooth ExtractionsTooth extractions involve far more than just pulling a tooth out of your mouth. Adult teeth have intricate root systems, and they are firmly embedded in your jaw and gum. Even teeth that have been damaged or undergone trauma and have become loose require careful extraction. Dr. Chi Fu at Chester Hill Dentistry offers careful and gentle tooth extractions, as well as restorative dentistry afterward.

Who Needs Tooth Extractions?

Tooth extraction is not a dental procedure that is undertaken lightly. Your Rye, NY, dentist will do everything possible to save your tooth before embarking on an extraction. Measures that are typically considered first to treat damaged or problem teeth can include root canal therapy, a composite filling, a dental onlay, or a porcelain crown.

If it is determined that your tooth is damaged beyond repair, an extraction will commence. There are also times when a tooth isn’t damaged but is problematic for your oral health and, in these cases, extraction will be an option. Some of the most common reasons for tooth extractions include:

For some patients, a problem tooth needs to be pulled to prevent it from damaging neighboring teeth or affecting the supporting tissues and bone structures of your mouth. If severe tooth decay or infection has attacked a tooth, it may not be possible to repair the tooth, or it may be too costly to undergo a repair, so extraction is the only alternative.

What to Expect During a Tooth Extraction

Tooth extractions are much more involved than grabbing a tooth and pulling to remove it from the mouth. Even if you don’t have dental anxiety, an anesthetic will be administered first to numb the area and reduce any potential discomfort.

During the extraction, you will feel the pressure of the tooth being removed, but you will not feel any pain. The tooth socket must be enlarged using levers to loosen and separate the tooth in question. The actual extraction is usually able to be completed within a matter of minutes, but there is a great deal of work that must be done in that brief amount of time.

The surgical site will be washed out and your Westchester dentist will ensure that the infected tissues, bone, and tooth fragments have been eliminated. Some bleeding is normal following the procedure, and gauze will be used to staunch the blood flow. Bleeding will be minimal but may last for a day or so before tapering off.

After a tooth extraction, it is essential to follow your Rye Brook dentist’s instructions about how often to change the gauze, what you can and cannot eat, and other post-procedure steps. These efforts minimize any complications and promote healing.

Smile Restoration After a Tooth Extraction

When you have a tooth pulled, you then are left with a hole in your smile. This isn’t too problematic if the tooth that has been pulled is a back molar. You have time to address the situation and the area and get it filled when you’re ready. However, if a more noticeable tooth has been extracted, you will need to replace this area as soon as possible so your oral health is not compromised and your smile is not marred.

Typical restorative dentistry solutions after tooth extractions include a dental implant, dentures or partials, a porcelain dental bridge, or other restorative dentistry solution.

Dr. Fu and his Chester Hill Dentistry team are experienced in tooth extraction and are prepared to make your dental visit as painless and comfortable as possible. If you need to talk about an extraction or get a second opinion, contact our Rye dental office to schedule a consultation or appointment.
