They clean teeth, correct bite issues, perform surgeries and extractions, and perform other duties to ensure that the teeth and mouth are healthy.
Dr. Wong attributes his success to his love of the medical field, his ability to make patients feel better, his enjoyment of the challenges, the advancement of technology, his continuous learning, as well as his strive to make a difference.
