I've been going to Dr. Tong for many years and have always experienced great service. It's a good place for children because they have an entire section of the office dedicated to toys and video games. The staff is always patient, kind, and attentive.
- Angela W.
I have been a patient with Dr. Tong since I was in 7th grade. As a kid, I moved around a lot so I've had experiences with many different dentists and Dr. Tong was by far the best.
