Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates:

We are now open for all in-office dental procedures. Please contact us to schedule your appointment.

In addition to our normal health and safety protocols, we have also added the following:

  • A new extraoral suction system that removes aerosols from the patient's mouth during the procedure and runs the air through multiple filters including a microbe killing UV filter. This reduces the risk of potential airborne pathogens from floating in the treatment room.
  • Temperature checks in the downstairs lobby
  • Distanced chairs in our waiting room
  • Physical barriers wherever possible
  • Increased PPE, surface protection, and surface disinfection
  • Greater time between appointments to allow for less waiting room time, more thorough sanitization of surfaces in the treatment room, and to accommodate the increased time needed for the donning of extra PPE
  • Every patient is contacted to screen their health and travel history according to ADA guidelines before they come to the office
  • We have air purifiers with HEPA filters that claim to help remove the COVID-19 airbourne virus
  • There is plenty of hand sanitizer in the lobby and every floor of the building

    We are committed to your health and safety, and we follow disinfection and social distancing protocols set by the CDC, ADA, and our local agencies. We look forward to seeing you.

Cheng H. Tai, DDS, of Cheng H. Tai, DDS, MS, PC, New York City, came to the United States from his native Taiwan to pursue his education. He earned a Master's degree in Material Science from New York University while concurrently studying at the school’s University of Dentistry, where he earned his dental doctorate degree and specialty certificate in prosthodontics. After serving as a clinical assistant professor at NYU for four years, Dr. Tai began a private practice in 1992, which continues to operate from its Midtown Manhattan location at the corner of Madison Avenue and 57th Street.

Dr. Tai views dentistry as a fine art, requiring knowledge, skill, and patience to perform at the highest levels. He breathes this passion into his work and, with his prosthodontics training, applies an artistic touch to make every cosmetic procedure as natural as possible. Dr. Tai personally cares for every patient who comes through his door.

Dr. Tai lives with his wife Jen-Hui and their two boys; Jen-Hui works as the practice’s office manager. When he's not at the office, Dr. Tai enjoys jogging, traveling, and visiting local museums.
