    Dr Derek has a really nice personality. He makes the whole examination process fun. I would highly recommend him. He is my 4th dentist in the bay area and so far so good.

    Dr. Wong was great, he really took time with my appointment and made sure all my questions were answered. Very thorough but also very conscious of not recommending work I didn't need immediately and things we could monitor. Will definitely be back!

    I had a great experience with Dr. Wong and his practice, from the first time I searched for a dentist on Open Care up through my appointment. Dr. Wong & his team were very friendly and informative, especially for someone like me who has a huge fear of dentists. A lot of dentists will try to up sell you on services, but didn’t feel that way at all here.

    Dr. Wong was very thorough with me. Going through my x-rays one by one and showing me spots of my teeth I should be aware of for cavities. My cleaning was gentle and his staff was very friendly.

    I'm ghastly afraid of the dentist and have been reluctant to go to one in a decade. However, Dr. Wong and his assistant (Chiaki) made sure I was comfortable every step of the way and gave me a thorough and comprehensive breakdown of my dental health and clear next steps to get my dental health back in good shape!
