Christy B. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)
(I also shared this post under his other Yelp listing, Pavilion Dentist Associates. It’s confusing that the same place is listed multiple times on Yelp!) I’ve been going to Dr Wong since I was a kid and lived in the Marlton area, but after a recent tooth emergency struck in center city Philadelphia — I’m more appreciative/ devoted/ amazed by Dr. Wong than ever before. Out of the blue one night in the summer, there was an intense pain in my mouth that woke me up from sleep. Since it came from nowhere, I tried to live with it for a day or two to see if it would as mysteriously go away. The pain was terrible — couldn’t think, couldn’t sleep, couldn’t be helped with OTC painkillers. It got to the point that I literally just wanted all suspect teeth to be ripped out of my mouth. Even though Dr. Wong has been my life-long dentist, out of desperation I went to a very reputable, Philadelphia-based dentist. While there, they examined my teeth, did X-rays, and told me the problem was from grinding my teeth at night. The solution? Take Tylenol, and come back for a night-guard. This didn’t feel like a plausible explanation, and the pain was only getting worse. This was not the time to try someone new — this was the time to go to my tried-and-true expert. Dr. Wong was able to squeeze me in as an emergency, and when he looked at my X-rays, there was a tiny shadow that was missed by the other office — but thanks to Dr. Wong’s incredible experience and knowledge, he was able to figure out that what I really needed was a root canal! It was not a fun experience, but I was so thankful for an accurate diagnosis, and the immediate pain relief it brought! Dr. Wong is everything you’d want your dentist to be; gentle, kind, thorough, and EXTREMELY knowledgeable about everything tooth related. (His staff is wonderful too. 🙂 ) After my last foray, I will never stray again: Pavilion Dental for life!
