Why He Was Nominated

In addition to seeing patients, Dr. Wong teaches at the Tulsa Institute, showing general dentists simple periodontal procedures.

Inspiration

His family dentist was a mentor and role model. Dr. Wong also loves the fact that dental technology changes quickly enough to keep him interested. “I’m a tech junkie,” he says. “I like being the first to try things, rather than wait for the jury’s verdict.”

Tool He Can't Live Without

“It helps me treat gingival recession while minimizing discomfort for patients.”
