Dr. Cedric C. Chenet is expanding his practice, adding a second dental office in Melbourne. It is an exciting time for the Chenet family as a younger generation of dentists joins the dental practice.

The decision to expand is in part because Chenet’s son, Derek Chenet, joined the practice as a full-time associate in July. Also joining the practice is Chenet’s fiancée, Dr. Veronica Yu, as a part-time associate.

“We don’t want to just be their dentist,” Chenet said. “We want the entire office (to be) their advocate.”

Testimonials from patients attest to Chenet’s unique family practice. During the past 15 years, the Chenet practice has grown and thrived from loyal patients.  Chenet clearly enjoys interacting with patients and setting them at ease with his warm smile and reassuring manner.

“I never tell a patient what they need before asking them what they want,” Chenet said.

The primary focus of the education of patients will continue with the two younger dentists, Chenet said.

“Our goal is for patients to maintain optimal oral health,” he said.

Chenet said he loves what he does and hopes to continue serving , patients for years to come during this new chapter in his professional career.  Referring to the new dentists as Dr. Derek (Chenet’s son) and Dr. Veronica, Dr. Chenet said they will continue the family style of dentistry.

The young dentists will join the practice with very impressive credentials, having graduated from Columbia University College of Dental Medicine and completed two very rigorous and challenging post-graduate training programs.

“I firmly believe we will make an awesome team and will stand out in Brevard County as being the elite dental team,” Chenet said.

The younger Chenet stated that his favorite part of dentistry is working with his hands and using new technologies while helping patients improve their oral health and their smile.

Yu's favorite part of dentistry? Getting to know her patients and being able to help them feel healthy and happier about their teeth and oral health.

Chenet’s wife, Katia, keeps things organized, and a team of dental experts treat patients like family. VV
