“Happy with Dr. Tong. Pleasant, happy staff that is very welcoming when you arrive. Stays on schedule. Kids aren't afraid of the dentist and work hard to get the t-shirt for no cavities. Also, while I was here I found out that there are discounts for veterans in November. Awesome to offer service members benefits!”

“Dr. Tong is a wonderful pediatric dentist. He has a calming presence and knows how to talk to kids to alleviate their fears. He made going to the dentist a fun experience for my young fearful son. I would highly recommend him, especially if your child is nervous.”
