Dr. Elston Wong

Owner and Senior Dentist


Dr Elston Wong

Dr. Elston Wong hails from Ottawa, but has taken the scenic route to Barrie. His undergrad years were spent at The University of Western Ontario in London (chemistry and biochemistry), and his dental degree was completed at The University of Toronto. After graduation in 1999, he trekked off to Boston for a year-long hospital-based general practice residency (GPR) at Tufts University. He practiced in a general dental office in Saint John, New Brunswick before finally arriving in Barrie in 2002. In 2015, Dr. Wong completed the curriculum at the Kois Center in Seattle
in order to better handle the more complex reconstructive problems faced by general dentists, and to this day thinks it’s the best professional decision he ever made. Since then, continuing education has been a mainstay of the practice with the attitude that “things can always be made better.”  Dr. Wong passed the mentor examination process at the Kois Center and as of 2018, serves as a mentor to incoming students.

Dr. Wong enjoys learning about the progress that dental industry is making, and in addition to the reading of dental journals, tries to attend continuing education programmes or conventions as much as possible. Since arriving in Barrie, Dr. Wong has attended conventions in Aruba, Montreal, Vancouver, Hawaii, Sydney, Washington DC, Stockholm, Malaysia, and Singapore. The fact that these places are also fantastic vacation destinations is most certainly a total coincidence.

“Dentistry is moving further and further away from the traditional break-and-fix or tooth-by-tooth treatment models. As expectations and technology are becoming more and more complex and varied, it is easy to get blinded by gadgetry and lose sight of what we’re actually trying to achieve: predictable, long-lasting dentistry that looks great.

My goal is to help you navigate the seas of treatment options and to provide you with the most predictable, evidence-based solutions. I believe in technology, but only as far as it has been demonstrated to provide better, or quicker solutions. By taking a whole-mouth approach to managing oral health, we can be sure that we give the best shot (no pun intended) at providing you solutions that meet your needs and wants. I look forward to working with you to find your solutions.”

Keshia

Keshia

Level II Dental Assistant


You will likely hear Keshia’s voice when calling our office. She has been part of our practice since January 2009, and as our front desk receptionist , manages the daily running of the office, takes calls, emails, insurance submissions and more. We can always count on Keshia for help in the back of the office as well, as she is a Level ll Dental assistant (her skills are versatile!) Outside of the office Keshia spends her time with her son and fiancé. She enjoys traveling, shopping and catching up on Netflix episodes and of course planning her future wedding.

Fun fact: Keshia’s management skills keep this place running like a well-oiled machine. It would turn in to a conflagration pretty quickly without her.
