Expert Team of Professionals

Dr. Johnny Cheng

Joining Hulen Dental in 1999, he has been selected as a “Top Dentist” in Fort Worth Magazine in 2006-2011, and as one of “America’s Top Dentists” in cosmetic and family dentistry for 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009-2011 by the National Consumers’ Research Council of America.

Dr. Lauro Tijerina, DDS

As a result of the incredible work by our three dental experts, our office was named the CEREC Office of the Month in August 2005 because of the use of this revolutionary technology that provides state-of-the-art dental care.
Are you just too busy throughout the week to get in for a regular checkup? Not to worry! Hulen Dental offers Saturday hours from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. We know life gets busy, and between work, taking the kids to school, soccer practice, and trying to get home early enough to fix dinner, things can fall between the cracks, especially when it comes to your oral health.
Do you need a tooth filled? Maybe you’re preparing for a cosmetic treatment that requires reshaping the soft tissue surrounding your teeth? Whatever the reason, at Hulen Dental, we use the Solea laser system. This unique, advanced technology is used by a few providers in the DFW Metroplex, and we are only one of 700 dentistry providers in the U.S. that offer this type of treatment.
The purpose of the Solea laser system is that it allows the dentist to perform soft tissue and hard tissue preparation, removal, and reshaping treatments without using needles, drills, scalpels, or sutures.
The benefits include:
- Faster treatment
- Improved comfort (no anesthetics needed)
- Minimal bleeding and discomfort
- No drilling
- More conservative procedure and precise (minimal tooth or gum tissue removal)
Taking care of your oral health is important in preventing gum disease, tooth decay, cavities, and other harmful problems. To keep from having to go to different dentists for various treatments, we offer comprehensive services all under one roof! You can expect:
- Preventative or General Dentistry (Regular checkups and cleanings)
- Cosmetic Dentistry (Porcelain veneers, Invisalign, Teeth Whitening)
- Restorative Dentistry (Dental Implants, Gum Disease Therapy)
- Sedation Dentistry (Oral Sedation)
- Emergency Dentistry (Toothache, Knocked-Out Tooth, Laceration, etc.)
If you’re a new patient, let us answer any questions you may have. We are here to help you not only receive quality dental care, but we want you to feel at home with a team who is dedicated to your overall oral health.
