“I can honestly say that I’ve never experienced such a luxurious dental office before such as yours. At first, I thought it was just in the waiting room, where there are snacks for while you wait, but it goes way beyond that! I always felt that my comfort was a main concern during my appointments and also the staff was very friendly; it helped to reassure me that I’d be comfortable. I also appreciated the fact that the Dr. and staff were pretty flexible with my schedule for my appointments. I also felt that Dr. Wong was very attentive and listened to what I wanted as far as shaping the teeth. I am pleased with the outcome of my smile and I’d definitely recommend SMCCD to everyone else! Thanks so much!” – Sheila Shahmirza
“I just wanted to thank you very much for my new and improved smile. Initially I came in for a consultation to deal with two issues: chronic tooth sensitivity and harsh coffee staining. Your office Manager, Michelle, could not have made me feel more welcome with her own beautiful smile and warm manner. Both you and she made yourselves available anytime by telephone for my questions; you never hurried, and you made me feel completely at ease.”
“I appreciated you working with me on the budget for this mouth-project, which is the most extravagant thing I’ve ever done for just me. Also, I noticed all the little ways you and your staff make patients feel comfortable, such as lighting candles and providing neck pillows and blankets. This procedure could have been nerve-wracking, but you took great care to make sure I had enough anesthetic to feel no pain. Then you called my home in the evening to make certain I was OK.
“Your patient-care is top-notch, and so is your artistic skill. I will gladly recommend you to anyone who needs tooth-whitening or veneers. And I look forward to working with you in the future on perfecting my bottom teeth.

“Becoming a new patient of Dr. Wong’s was probably one of the best decisions I have made regarding my dental care. Extremely comfortable surrounding and very personal care from the Dr. and staff – Michelle and Elyse. Great communication and follow- up. Dr. Wong is an outstanding “artist” and I actually look forward to going to the dentist – can you believe that? I won’t hesitate to recommend highly anyone considering Dr. Wong and his staff, as they are, in my opinion, terrific.” – Robert Taylor
“Dr. Michael Wong gave me the Wowsmile I’ve always wanted! I always delayed going to see a dentist because of my intense fear of dental procedures. Dr. Wong put my fears to rest when he was able to complete ALL my dental work with sedation dentistry! I didn’t feel a thing and I don’t remember much. Sedation dentistry has changed my outlook on dental procedures! Dr. Wong has excellent chair-side manner and his assistant William is awesome! Michelle greets you with a beautiful smile and a warm welcome when you walk through their office door. I would highly recommend this dental office to any person looking for a dentist. They’re fabulous!” – AnnaLiza Calvillo

“When I started looking for a Dentist to provide me with Veneers I started searching on the Internet for ‘Board Certified’ Cosmetic Dentists. There I found Dr. Wong and could read through all of his credentials. I called Dr. Wong, as I was 2.5 hours from his office. I could have found several ‘general’ dentists or non Board Certified Dentists that performed the process for Veneers a lot closer to my home but I wanted the best and I was willing to travel if needed, it paid off for me as I couldn’t be happier about my new Veneers, I was not going to leave my procedure in the hands of General Dentist or those who don’t do the volume that Dr. Wong does or who don’t have the background of Dr.Wong.
“Dr. Wong and his staff are top-notch people and professional in every way. They will work with you and make adjustments every step of the way. The process was not painful, just sometimes some very minor discomfort as I am an impatient patient who doesn’t like to sit in 1 place for any longer than 30 minutes.
“I would highly recommend Dr. Wong and his staff if you are considering Veneers as you owe it to yourself to at least call him and chat with him, stop by if possible. I know I made the right decision, I found 1 of the best.” – Patrick Shaffer

By looking at magazine photos and discussing my “perfect” smile with Dr. Wong, he was able to design and give me the most gorgeous, natural teeth I could have imagined. It was exactly what I wanted. My smile was perfect for my wedding day! I love looking at my smile everyday, thanks to Dr. Wong. I enjoy it every day and am thankful that I did this for myself.” – Stephanie Roderick
“Dr. Wong replaced all of my silver fillings with white enamel fillings. I have no pain in my mouth anymore, the first time since I was 13 years old. He beautifully moulded each filling so the top of the filling looked like my original tooth, but better. I have always disliked going to the dentist because I needed to go so much as a kid. I love going to Dr. Wong’s office, it is relaxing and everyone is so nice. They do make you feel at home! Thanks Dr. Wong.” – Nancy Freschet
“Dr. Wong installed a total of fifteen (15) new veneers on my teeth (nine on top and six on bottom). I went to Dr. Wong because I was unhappy with my old veneers (done by another dentist) and gaps between my bottom teeth. The result was excellent. Now I am smiling a lot and loving it.
“The entire process was very pleasant. The doctor and his assistant made sure that I was comfortable and pain-free. Doctor’s office provided individual TV /DVD and radio entertainment, warm neck pillow, and beautiful surroundings with indoor fish tanks and outdoor garden views. The chair-side manners were always extraordinary pleasant and courteous.
“The front desk clerk was also very friendly, cheerful, and helpful on my billings. Paperwork to my insurance company was processed expeditiously.” – Julie Ma
“I have Dr. Wong to thank for putting the confidence back in my smile. He’s a true artist who takes great pride in his work to the point of perfection. I am incredibly pleased with my new smile as well as the wonderful care I received through the process. He and his staff are a team of talented, caring, professionals, who make every effort to ensure client satisfaction and a comfortable, pain free experience with each visit.” – Lynne Poirier
“I absolutely LOVE my new smile! They are perfectly bright, but they still look natural. I thought my real front teeth were fine, but needed whitening. Dr. Wong showed me how ‘aged” they actually looked. I was very surprised, but I could see how the veneers I was getting would make my smile younger!
Even more important in choosing Dr. Wong are the lengths he had to go through in keeping my “temporaries” stick to my real teeth. I am the most difficult client I think he has ever had! Because of the way I grind my teeth, I had to go back to his office four times (one of them on a Saturday). Once, even while four young boys were playing in his office waiting for him, so they could get to Pac Bell Park early enough to catch fly balls before the game started.
He was incredibly patient, gracious and of good humor every minute. He made every accommodation he could to make me not only comfortable but feeling good. I can give Dr. Wong a big two thumbs up. Going anywhere else would probably be a mistake!” – Jan Miller
“My experience at Dr.Wong’s office was excellent , I am happy with every aspect, the procedure , the staff , the cost. I receive compliments on my teeth all the time.. I tell everyone about Dr.Wong..

The office staff is very kind and they always provide excellent customer service as well as follow up calls.” – Tim Dane

I am so amazed at what Dr. Wong has done for my smile. It really made a big difference for me!” – Carol Hung
