Dr. Wendy Xue was born in Shanghai, China and came to the U.S. (New York) at age nine. 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 is a Board Certified pediatric dentist by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, and is an active member of AAPD, ADA and local dental societies. She also believes in giving back and actively participates in various programs such as Give Kids a Smile.
Dr. Wendy takes a rather conservative approach to dentistry and believes that prevention should be the main goal in pediatric dentistry. 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 is the key."
Dr. Wendy is also trained in treating children with special needs, as well as children and adolescents with dental anxiety. Dr. Wendy is experienced in various behavioral management and sedation techniques, so there are treatment options catered toward every single child. Each child is special, and Dr. Wendy will make sure each patient feels this way from the minute they walk into her office.
