I would like to start by formally introducing myself, my name is Dr. Steven Wong, and I am pleased to begin serving the community of Cerritos in all aspects of dentistry! It’s been quite a journey to get here, starting about 9 years ago when I moved down to southern California from my hometown of Vacaville, a small town in northern California. I became interested in dentistry as a young child in elementary school after interviewing my childhood dentist for a school project. After attending UC Irvine and further assisting in community dental clinics, I realized that dentistry was my calling. The ability to work with my hands to help heal as well as create long term relationships with patients was a very rewarding concept. Upon graduating from UCI, I achieved my dream of attending UCLA for dental school as well as a one year graduate program, learning advanced techniques such as implant surgeries and full mouth rehabilitation cases. I am extremely excited to utilize all the knowledge and skills I have obtained over the last decade to provide the highest quality of care to all of you!
Outside of dentistry, I enjoy hanging out at the beach, barbecuing with friends, hiking, or anything outdoorsy and adventurous. I will never say no to trying a new restaurant or any type of food since I love to eat, although I also endeavor to improve upon my own culinary skills. Although I thoroughly love being outside on a warm summer day, I also don’t mind spending lazy days inside watching TV, including Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, and The Office.
I would like to thank everyone for welcoming me into the Tri-City Dental Family! I will be working here Mondays, Thursday, Fridays, and Saturdays, so please don’t be shy to drop by and say hello! I look forward to the opportunity to meet and work with you all and, hopefully, I can help you achieve a beautiful, healthy smile!”
