Dr. Eng was born and raised in southern California, in the city of Los Angeles in what is better known as the ghetto, 48th and Hoover was south central LA just 11 blocks south of USC. His dad was a mechanical engineer and mom was a seamstress. The family was poor but his parents worked hard and gave everything to their kids and family. Eventually Dr. Eng's family moved to the Crenshaw area and he spent his life there prior to college. He attended Dorsey High School, and played football and tennis. During his first year playing football, his mom told him "You have to stop playing football." When Dr. Eng inquired as to why, she replied, "Because you just got braces and I don't want them to get ruined." So football was short lived, but tennis (as the safer and mom-approved sport!) was played throughout high school. The varsity tennis team competed as one of the top 3 teams in the city for the 4 years in high school.
After graduating, Dr. Eng attended USC for the next 8 years. For his undergraduate degree he studied Nutritional biology, and received his doctorate degree at the USC school of dentistry. It was during his first year of college in 1977 that he met his eventual soulmate, Vickie. They dated for 8 years and were married after Dr. Eng graduated from dental school. Vickie graduated from the USC school of pharmacy. After settling in Yorba Linda in 1987, they had two girls, Mandy and Lauren. Mandy, the oldest, graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. She is currently a Satellite engineer at Boeing in El Segundo. Lauren, the youngest, is finishing her senior year at UC Irvine studying biology. She was recently accepted to pharmacy schools for the upcoming year, one being USC. Hmm, wonder where she will go? Neither girls wanted to pursue dentistry as they both think it's gross to put your hands in people's mouths!
Dr. Andrey Eng loves being a dentist, and has wanted to be a dentist since he was five years old. His dentists growing up were great influences and helped guide him. One of Dr. Eng's dentist mentors even worked on movie stars like Elizabeth Taylor and Barry Manilow, and Dr. Eng has seen some of their x-rays. With great passion, Dr. Eng is constantly educating himself. He loves new technology and wants to incorporate any that will provide the absolutely best care for his patients. From minimally invasive dentistry to high tech lasers it's all about taking care of his patients whom he treats as friends.
