William Cheng, DMD, MS



Dr. William Cheng was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago. He received his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago. After finishing dental school, he completed a hospital-based General Practice Residency at Jesse Brown Veterans Affairs Medical Center. He then returned to UIC to complete his advanced specialty training in Endodontics and additionally received a Master of Science in Oral Sciences.

During his specialty training, Dr. Cheng’s area of research was in the field of Regenerative Endodontics, specifically in the successful proliferation and differentiation of dental pulp stem cells. This field strives to retain young, infected teeth by disinfection of the canal space, regeneration of the dental pulp, and continued growth of the root.

Dr. Cheng’s passion for his specialty stems from the ability of endodontic procedures to preserve the natural dentition as well as to relieve patients of pain. He focuses on patient centered care and staying current with the most recent scientific evidence in order to optimize comfortable and successful treatment.

Personal Interests

In his free time, Dr. Cheng enjoys playing soccer, learning about astronomy and physics, and spending time with family and friends.
