“I enjoy practicing dentistry because of the profound impact I can make on the health and well-being of my patients. My practice philosophy is to restore and enhance dental function and cosmetics with the emphasis on conservative treatments. I recognize that the health of the teeth and mouth is reflection of the health of the whole body and this balance should be maintained by utilizing nontoxic materials. I use the latest technology with the goal of providing excellent care for my patients and always with an emphasis on comfort and personalized care. Although it is not a standard service offered, I have many times provided personal home or hospital visits for patients for their convenience when they temporarily became home or hospital bound”.
Dr. Lily Eng graduated from Columbia University with her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1993. She stays up-to-date on the latest and most innovative dental procedures by traveling across the country to attend continuing education courses.
Dr. Eng is a board certified Diplomate of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine (ABDSM). She is also a respected member of the Academy of General Dentistry and the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine. Her focus is treating patients for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea using oral appliance therapy and orthodontics. Dr. Lily Eng is one of the few dentists in the New York City area trained in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea with oral appliances. She works closely with many sleep medicine physicians and otolaryngologists (ENTs).
Dr. Lily Eng became involved in sleep medicine when her Dad and husband were diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea. She wasn't aware of the medical implications until she furthered her own research in the area and was also surprised to find out that many health professionals and the general public are not aware of the prevalence of this condition. It is her mission to educate her patients on the impact of this condition and the treatments available to amend and potentially cure this condition with the alliance of other sleep specialists.
Dr. Eng is a proud wife and mother and has a teenage son. In her spare time she enjoys exotic ethnic and regional foods and is an avid fan of the television show “Bizarre Foods” with Andrew Zimmern. She loves all the Marvel Comics movies such as X-Men, Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, The Avengers, etc. When she does have the occasional vacation break, she enjoys taking nature walks, hiking, and bicycle riding.
Her office accepts most dental and medical insurances and her staff will help with all insurance predeterminations and claims.
I found out about Dr. Eng while searching for a new dentist in general but also for someone knowledgable about dental appliances for sleep apnea. My last dentist had palmed me off on a 20-something year old assistant who seemed to not know how to take the molds and the dentist was uninterested in resolving the fit problems. Dr. Eng, on the other hand, is a complete joy to work with in every way. She is very pleasant, extremely knowledgable, really listens, takes her time and cares about doing quality work. Superb dentist.
Dr. End and the other dentist were very nice and professional. Dr. Eng explained a lot of things to me and helped advised me and another dentist did my cleaning. I had a great experience coming here as the dentist who did my cleaning did a great job. For years I thought I thought my teeth was a bit dirty as my previous dentist did not do a thorough job and the cleaning dentist explained that "oh its just stains". They did not half ass the cleaning like my previous dentist and I felt much more comfortable about myself afterwards. I highly recommend them as they know what they are doing and everyone is very nice.
