Other dentists rave about the work in my mouth, 5/07/2012

Worried at first when Dr. Kelvin Chin retired, I was consigned to the "fact" I'd be looking for another dentist. Wary of "the 'new' guy" I decided to give him a try. Outstanding work, an artist! ... When my insurance changed, I saw another in the area, who was greatly impressed with my "beautiful work". Her work was no comparison, so though I was still insured with someone, I continued to use Dr. Fong until I moved so far away, it was impossible to return. I cannot recommend highly enough.

Dr. Fong is the best!, 3/17/2009

Since I have been seeing Dr. Fong I have felt I have had the best service possible. My husband actually starting seeing Dr. Fong first and after hearing of his great services and hi-technolgy I... decided to leave my dentist of more than 30 years. DR. Fong and his staff has made my appointments more comfortable and I feel I am in the best hands. My daughter now sees Dr. Fong as well. I would recomend anyone who wants the best dentist to see Dr. Fong.

Forever Grateful!

Dearest Dr. Fong and staff: I don't know how to begin to thank you for what you have done for me! I was so depressed when I came to see you. My teeth were atrocious after all the failed dentistry I have had in the past to fix the gap between my front teeth just made my teeth even worse. I stopped going to the dentist not because I was afraid of pain but because of embarrassment. My life was unbearable having to be face to face with customers all day and not being able to smile because of the strange look on their faces when they got a glance at my teeth just put me in a deeper depression! I have had many instances when I just wanted to go into hiding and never come out! But you and your staff has changed all that! When I emailed you when I just couldn't take it anymore and you sent back the sweetest and most caring email I decided to give it one last try to fix this problem of mine. Dr. Fong, you are truly the best dentist ever! Not only did you make my smile beautiful but you did it with no pain at all! It's just so unbelievable! My friends and co-workers are amazed that every time I had an appointment with you I returned to work that very same day with no pain at all. I feel very fortunate to have found you! I just wish everyone could be as fortunate as me to have such a wonderful dentist as you. You were the answer to all my prayers! You have changed my life tremendously and I will be forever grateful! I am going to say it again you are truly the best!

New Hollywood Smile!

Thank you for my beautiful new Hollywood smile! I had spent years trying to find the right procedure to hide the ugly black showing through on my bridge work. I couldnít even have my teeth whitened and I certainly didnít want to have the bridges replaced with new ones. Thanks to hearing about Lumineers and meeting Dr Fong, I now have the smile I have always wanted. No more black areas showing through, only straight, beautiful white teeth. Thank you once again to Dr Fong and his staff for being very accommodating and a pleasure to meet.

The only dentist I trust with my teeth!

Dr. Fong was my third dentist consultation for lumineers. I guess the third time is a charm because I felt really comfortable in Dr. Fong's office. His positive attitude and professionalism on my consultation was what made me decide to choose Dr. Fong as my cosmetic dentist. He genuinely cared about doing the best job possible and gave me every detail I needed to know about the process. I knew Dr. Fong would do a great job and he did! His work is perfection and it shows! I am so happy with the results. The assistants and staff were also very wonderful throughout the whole process. Now when my friends and family see the results, they are so amazed at what a great job Dr. Fong did on my teeth. It is so fun to smile now! After my lumineers Dr. Fong has become my regular dentist and I would trust no one else with my teeth! I would recommend Dr. Fong to anyone looking for a new dentist.

Love to smile

He said it was my smile. Who would think, after years of living with unsightly teeth, someone would invite me to a movie and dinner because I have a ďwonderful smile?Ē I believe it confirms that my new smile created an amazing transformation in my appearance. I have vivid memories of my first visit to Dr. Fong when I had to forewarn him that my teeth were hideous and unhealthy. Struggling with health concerns over the years, I was less than a cooperative patient at times. I may not have expressed my feelings at the time, but I appreciated Dr. Fong's patience and understanding. I was elated on my first good check up, everything was fine, my teeth were healthy, and I was ready for an attractive smile. Dr. Fong is always meticulous, so I was confident my new smile would turn out just the way it did, naturally beautiful. So now, thanks to him and his staff, I smile when I meet and greet others, when I laugh and feel happy, and even for the camera. It feels great to be able to smile.

Sticking with Dr. Fong!

I've been a patient of Dr. Fong's since he started here. Granted, at that point, I was just a kid and had very little choice in the matter. But, it is worth mentioning that I was never afraid of the dentist. (I was almost excited about going, because they had a little toy bin from which I got to pick a gift when my appointment was done.) Now, I am 25 years old, have a job, and have moved out of the area. The important point here is that Dr. Fong is now my dentist by choice. I drive 45 minutes to see Dr. Fong and his friendly dental hygienists. I could easily go to a dentist closer to where I live now, but Dr. Fong is an excellent dentist. He is a dentist to stick with!

Finally a Dentist I don't mind going to!

I had my first appointment with Dr. Fong today. He came highly recommended! The friend who recommended him is moving 300 miles away and will be flying back to see Dr. Fong for regular dental work. I figured if he is worth flying back for he must be good. Well he exceed my expectations. When you arrive the attention focuses on you and you get a good vibe from the moment Eileen welcomes you. The staff is all very friendly. First they sit you down and the dentist comes in and introduces himself and chats you up about your dental history. Then he checks out your teeth and takes pictures of them so you can see what is going on in your mouth. He doesn't frown upon you if you have not been flossing/brushing or visiting the dentist like you should like some dentists do. He does a thorough examination of your mouth and then you get digital xrays done, they don't hurt like other xrays do and there is less radiation used so it is safer. The cleaning was done with a high powered water pic type machine and didn't hurt a bit. In fact, I almost fell asleep. Seeing Dr. Fong today has set a new bar for dentists in my mind. No longer will I cringe when I think about a dentist appt. I highly recommend Dr.

Great Dentist!

Dr. Fong does great work--he's a perfectionist which is a wonderful trait for a dentist. Crowns (made in his office while you wait) fit perfectly. "Painless dentistry" is an oxymoron but Dr. Fong comes as close as possible. He is always considerate and conscious of any pain or discomfort, and keeps such at a minimum. I've been going to him for 10 years and highly recommend him!

Relaxed in the Dentist's Chair

After a few visits with Dr. Fong, my whole outlook on dentistry and dentists was radically improved. For 30 years, I feared dental work. I feared Novocain shots, I feared the drilling, I feared the cleaning, I even feared the x-rays... and I now understand it was all because I had a horrible dentist. Everything he did was painful. Dr. Fong, on the other hand, is very mindful of pain.. how to avoid it when possible, and how to manage the unavoidable. He has special techniques of tricking your mind when administering shots. He believes in early detection and treatment. And he has the latest technologies which minimize the need for Novocain in the first place. In fact, my most recent filling required NO Novocain whatsoever, and it was painless! Dr. Fong is knowledgeable, gentle, and friendly. I can honestly say I am relaxed when I'm in Dr. Fong's dentist chair.

Best Dentist!

When I first came to see Dr. Fong I was very self-conscious of my smile. As a child I had a large gape between my two front teeth. I had braces for several years which reduced the gap, however by the time I was in college and beyond I was tired of having to wear a retainer to keep my two front teeth together. About three years ago I went to a Dentist in Texas (where I lived at the time) and explained my issue with my front teeth. The dentist put veneers on my two front teeth (a very painful and scary process as they grind down your teeth in order to place the veneers over the teeth). After many, many visits I finally had my two new front teeth - to me they seemed too bright and too large compared to the rest of my teeth, but I decided to deal with it. Three years passed and by this time I had heard of Lumineers - as fate would have it I cracked one of my front veneers and decided to see a Dentist and have a consultation about having Lumineers placed on my teeth. I could not have been more thrilled with Dr. Fong and his staff, they are extremely friendly, they LISTEN to your concerns and desires and make every visit a pleasant experience. I explained my aesthetic problems with my two front teeth to Dr. Fong and we discussed what would be best for me to get an even, beautiful, and aesthetically pleasing smile. After a few visits my new smile was in place and it was the best experience I've ever had with a Dentist!

Changed my life!

Dr. Fong completely changed my life by reconstructing my smile. I didnít realize how bad my teeth were until I saw how good you could make them look. If I would have known that this kind of transformation was possible, I would have gotten it done a lot sooner. My face and my smile look so much more symmetrical and proportionate. People have told me that I look a lot happier and I have noticed that my smile has caused others to smile as well. My new smile has also encouraged other people to want to improve their smile. My bite has improved tremendously. My lips are fuller and a lot more comfortable with Lumineers. Dr. Fong really went the extra mile to make sure I was satisfied and well taken care of. At first I didnít know how Dr. Fong was going to accomplish what I desired, but after we were finished, my teeth looked even better than I imagined. Dr. Fong completely re-engineered the way my face looks and has helped me to love the way my smile looks. Thanks Dr. Fong!

Amazing!

Wow, I am truly amazed how far along dentistry has come. I needed a crown and Dr. Fong was able to complete the procedure in one visit by using CEREC technology. In a little over 2 hours, I had a new crown and my hygiene visit was also combined to save me another trip. I have been a patient for many, many years and appreciate the quality service that I consistently receive from Dr. Fong and his staff.
