Dentist Stephen Wong
Stephen is a native of the bustling, exciting city of Hong Kong. Stephen was still a child when his family settled on the beautiful Gold Coast to explore exciting new opportunities for him and his siblings. By the time Stephen graduated from the Australian school education system, he had acquired a strong sense of vocation towards dentistry. He decided to pursue further education and training in dentistry, by enrolling in the Bachelor of Dental Science program at the University of Queensland.
After graduating in 2001 with honours, Stephen gained invaluable professional experience in both the private and public dental sectors. He has a strong belief in maintaining a detailed understanding of all aspects of modern dentistry. Stephen backs up his belief by regularly attending lectures and seminars held by industry experts to advance and update his dental knowledge.
Stephen’s passion to make a difference in the Brisbane dental scene saw him connect up with Dr. Julian Mok, a like-minded professional associate and friend. Their shared vision inspired them to take the first steps to build Healthy Smile Dental from scratch into a reality. By 2004, the first Healthy Smiles Dental practice was opened.
As co-founder of Healthy Smile Dental, Stephen’s mission is to create a dental practice that provides a full range of modern personalised treatment options to suit the individual dental needs of each of his patients – from babies to over 65s. Recognising the need for an all-encompassing dental practice in surrounding areas, Stephen is currently setting up our new and exciting Underwood practice.
