We Are Dental Professionals

Same Day Crowns

Our Cerec machine allows us to create a same-day crown for your tooth. The Cerec 3D software takes a digital picture of the prepared tooth and converts it into a 3-dimensional virtual model on the computer screen. We use our dental expertise to design the restoration using the Cerec 3D computer program. A ceramic block that matches your tooth shade is placed in the milling machine and about 30 minutes later, your all-ceramic, tooth-colored crown is finished and ready to bond into place. Your tooth is now restored, completed in a single appointment! More Same Day Crowns…

And to improve accessibility and transparency for her patients, she modernized her web site to reflect those needs.  More about Technology…

This is no easy task, but at Northgate Dental we are up to the challenge. More about Cosmetic Dentistry…

Preventive Dentistry

Building and maintaining healthy smiles is our mission at Northgate Dental. We believe that a healthy mouth can contribute to a healthy body. Research shows that bacteria and inflammation linked to Periodontitis can play a role in some systemic diseases and conditions. Likewise, diseases such as diabetes, blood cell disorders, and age can lower the bodies resistance to infection, making periodontal disease more severe. Routine cleanings can help prevent inflammation and its detrimental effects on your guns and bone. More about Preventive Dentistry…

We work with a wide age group including children of all ages. Northgate Dental provides a local feel-good experience you can count on, providing both general and family dentistry backed by cutting edge technology in a modern and tech-friendly environment. More about Family Dentistry…

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a procedure that replaces tooth roots with metal, screw-like posts and replaces damaged or missing teeth with artificial teeth that look and function much like real ones. Dental implants can offer a welcome alternative to bridgework or dentures that don’t fit well. A dental implant is a metal post that replaces the root of a missing tooth. An artificial tooth (crown) is placed on an extension of the post (abutment) on the implant, giving you the look of a real tooth. The major benefit of dental implants is solid support for your new teeth. More about Dental Implants…

Northgate Dental Testimonials

The appointment itself was painless. Dr. Wong answered all of my questions and came up with a reasonable plan for my next visit. He never once made me feel ashamed of my teeth, nor did I feel pressured into getting unnecessary procedures. For the first time ever, I’m actually looking forward to my next visit and not dreading it.

Noelle N., Patient

I’ve been to his office numerous times–he’s a true professional. I needed a fair amount of rehabilitation, but he made it easy and I never felt uncomfortable.

Tim K., Patient

Had a toothache for sometime now. Went to Dr Wong and finally got it pulled. I thought it was going to be difficult and painful because from my last experience it wasn’t great at all. From anesthesia and pulling of the tooth I had no pain at all. Dr. Wong thank you so much for the wonderful experience in a dental practice. By far the BEST DENTIST I’VE BEEN AT.

Joseph M., Multiple Crowns

Very gentle and careful. Doesn’t over-treat. Excellent family dentist. Very nice staff and pleasant office. Highly recommend.

Lee T., Patient

I needed a replacement for a three tooth bridge as there was decay under it. Dr. Wong was very careful and patient. He removed the old one carefully and got the replacement. It’s in now and I’m very pleased with it. The cost was reasonable considering the time it took. I highly recommend him. The office is pleasant and staff very pleasant.
