Meet the Team

We believe that our unique and talented team is what sets us apart from other orthodontic practices. Dr. Cho has assembled a team that is unmatched in skill and service. We are a group of women who all share the same goal of instilling confidence in our patients through beautiful smiles as well as building strong relationships that last long after orthodontic treatment is complete.

At New Hyde Park/Cho Orthodontics, we treat our patients like family. Your personalized care is the focus of our practice. We want you to look forward to every visit.

We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
