To help patients visualize their results, Dr. Fong has created the website www.BracesResults.ca, a comprehensive website of results for both, conventional braces and Invisalign. Anyone considering orthodontics can browse through information on over 650 of his orthodontic patients, showing before and after pictures along with information about duration of treatment, type of malocclusion (bad bite), virtual teeth movement videos. Dr. Fong can also be found on YouTube where he has over 450 videos showing a variety of dental procedures and orthodontic appliance treatments.
“As a general dentist focusing on orthodontics, I can orchestrate their complete smile,” Dr. Fong relates. Complete makeover cases includes correcting severe misalignment, reducing deep overbites, closing excess spaces, creating spaces for implants, inserting temporary teeth, contouring gingiva, and inserting cosmetic crowns among others. Dr. Fong works closely with other general dentists who refer their patients for the initial orthodontic phase of their smile makeover. The patient is then returned to their dentist to have the rest of the treatment completed.
For Dr. Fong, the best part of his work is the respect and friendship he has developed over his 33 years of service to his community. His services can be accessed in nine different languages: English, French, Cantonese, Spanish, Arabic, Italian, Portuguese, Sri Lankan, and Punjabi. “Needless to say, the thousands of smiles I created over the years is beyond words when it comes to self-satisfaction,” he says.
The field of dentistry, and especially cosmetic dentistry, is rapidly changing. Better quality of materials and improved equipment allow for a far greater range of conditions that are now easily treatable. New technology also offers better patient comfort and more clinical efficiency.
In future Dr. Fong intends to continue his focus using Invisalign. as part of this Orthodontic services due to its demand from patients that would have otherwise not seek treatment.
