Over the years, he has completed various courses in various fields such as implantology, endodontics and orthodontics conducted by institutions in Germany, South Korea, Japan and Switzerland
Dato’ Dr. Wong began his career in 2000 in a dental clinic based in Kajang, Selangor as dentist serving patients from the local neighbourhood. He was later offered a position as an Associate Dentist in an upmarket dental clinic based in Kuala Lumpur.
In 2001, he left to set up his own dental practice, Drs Wong and Partners Dental Surgeons in Sri Petaling, Kuala Lumpur, serving the community within the mature neighbourhood and the surrounding areas. Dedicated to better serve the community particularly the senior citizens, Dato’ Dr. Wong established his second dental clinic under the brand, “Dentiste’ Clinic” in 2008. The location of the said clinic is thoughtfully selected to be street-fronting to provide ease of access to the senior citizens and within walking distance from his first dental clinic.
Driven by his passion to provide quality dental services to the community, Dato’ Dr. Wong continued to grow the operations of his dental clinics. To facilitate the management and expansion of our Group’s operations, SLDG was incorporated in 2010 to assume the management of the operations of existing clinics.
In 2011, Dato’ Dr. Wong established our Group’s first dental centre which is staffed with specialists and equipped with technologically-advanced dental equipment such as 3D X-Ray scanning machine, CAD/CAM CEREC equipment for crowning services, surgical microscope and comprehensive sterilisation system. The dental centre is
complemented by free parking facilities to provide ease of access to the patients, particularly the elders and persons with disabilities. The dental centre supports our Group’s dental clinics, where patients are referred to the dental centre for more
complicated procedures to be performed by our specialists.
In addition to his passion and commitment towards building our Group, Dato’ Dr. Wong is also active in environmental preservation and dental-related social charity events. He has founded a number of non-governmental organisations related to the aforementioned areas such as the Green and Blue Environmental Protection Society to promote green awareness and Malaysia Smile Action Team Association, a voluntary outreach programme that offers dental services to the less-privileged.
