Dr. Saeung (“Cy-Young”) joined our group in summer of 2015. She grew up in this side of town and graduated from Grand Ledge HS in 2004. As a first generation of her family to finish high school, Dr. Saeung received her bachelor’s in Neuroscience from University of Michigan and her DDS from University of Michigan School of Dentistry in 2013. She went on for an additional training through General Practice Residency & Hospital Dentistry at the VA Fresno Hospitals in California, in which she focused on the medically complex patients, the immunocompromised, and high risk children. She returned to her Alma Mater to complete Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Internship and currently serves as an adjunct faculty at the dental school.
Dr. Saeung enjoys wide range of restorative work such as crowns and bridges, dentures, TMJ pain investigation and offers traditonal orthotics for night time as well as a naturopathic route through minerals and supplements that have been heavily reserched and accepted by the medical fields to help reduce psychosomatic activity which leads to daytime clenching and grinding. Dr. Saeung provides root canals treatment through first molars. She particularly enjoys atraumatic oral surgery techniques which she utilizes in the extraction of wisdom teeth, implant placement, bone and soft tissue grafting, and pre-denture bone and tissue contouring. Dr. Saeung strives to be a well-rounded dental provider and seek continuing education on a monthly basis. She believes in holistic approach and treats her patient/s as a whole person. She enjoys working here as each doctor can offer varieties of care methods to patients based on their needs. Ideas get bounced back and forth when all the docs are together!
Dr. Saeung has a strong interest in public health and helps treat the homeless and underserved populations in the greater Lansing area at the local Volunteers of America Dental Clinic on Fridays. Dr. Saeung was recognized for her contribution to local community through the Greater Lansing Area Chamber of Commerce. (The 10 Over the Next Ten Award, 09/2017) She currently serves as adjunct community-based education faculty to supervise Michigan dental students while they provide care to patients as part if their outreach curriculum. In her free time, Dr. Saeung tries to perfect new languages (currently Spanish) so she can better communicate with her patients from various backgrounds. She recently got her wish to speak Spanish while providing patient care in Mexico with Dr. Schaefer for the advanced dental implant and soft tissue management training early this year. With her family living all over the world, Dr. Saeung enjoys traveling to visit her loved ones especially her grandparents in Thailand. She loves travel tips and pearls from patients. She also enjoys hiking and exploring new food scenes. Fun Fact: Dr. Saeung’s grandma nicknamed her JJ, which came from JingJing in Fujian dialect, meaning crystal clear /purehearted
