Meet Dr. Jesse Teng
On Being an Orthodontist
The orthodontic profession is truly amazing. We make a difference in our patients’ lives by interacting with them, getting to know them, and ultimately improving their quality of life by transforming their smiles. Most of our patients will testify they have a more positive outlook on life and more confidence in their smile following their treatment.
It’s rewarding to spend my days working with a variety of patients, all seeking the common goal of a beautiful smile, but each with different life experiences. The conversations I have with each person, the stories they share with me, build friendships that are extremely fulfilling. I love their positive attitudes toward their treatment and excitement throughout the process.
Education and Pursuit of Continuing Education
THE JOHN HOPKINS UNIVERSITY — Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering with a concentration in Materials Science and Engineering
COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY, SCHOOL OF DENTAL AND ORAL SURGERY — Doctorate of Dental Surgery
UNIVERSITY OF ROCHESTER MEDICAL CENTER, EASTMAN DENTAL CENTER — Certificate in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics
Throughout the year I participate in orthodontic meetings, seminars, and study clubs, all of which keep me informed of developments in the field. By remaining at the leading edge of knowledge, I am able to ensure that I deliver the most advanced treatments and use the best technology to care for my patients. This means more comfortable treatment with a shorter duration and the strongest results.

Outside the Office
I was raised in New York City; El Paso’s been my home for the past nine years. Bonnie, my wife, is a CPA, certified yoga instructor, women’s clothing line consultant, and mother to our three young children, Jacob, Ryan, and Brooke. She also works in the practice as our office coordinator.
Away from work, you’ll most often find me spending time with my family and enjoying the beautiful mountain views and sunny weather here in El Paso. I also enjoy traveling, playing volleyball, rocket yoga, and very basic breakdancing.
