Ratings for Dr. Elston Wong
I went to Dr. wings office because I was having pain that another dentist couldn't figure out. They gave me an appointment right away and I was very impressed with his knowledge and the time he took to explain things to me. It is difficult to find doctors that care and have the knowledge and experience to really make a difference. It seems that most doctors are just in it for the money but Dr. Wong really shows an interest in helping people. He figured out my problem and I now bring my whole family to him. I recommend Dr. Wong and his staff to everyone I know in Barrie.
Took my husband in for emergency tooth extraction and was fantastic. Even called my husband after business hours to speak to him about the procedure. Went above and beyond in every way. Staff were great! Beautiful and clean office. Would recommend Dr.Wong and his team to everyone you won't be disappointed
Dr. Wong is the absolute best Dentist in Barrie. I've been a patient in addition to my family for many years. He has the patience of a saint and is kind, friendly, and gentle in all the procedures I have witnessed. He also has a great sense of humour and fantastic people skills. Amazing Doctor!
Be very cautious going to this clinic. They seem to care about making money and not about your teeth. They gave me a very aggressive (and extremely expensive) treatment plan which would have cost me nearly eight thousand dollars but thankfully I was told by another dentist that it wasn't necessary. They also told me I needed more cleanings and asked me for my insurance information. I gave it to them so they could set up an optimal cleaning schedule. Even with this info they booked me in too many times and my insurance coverage ran out. They told me they'd talk to the insurance company to try and get them to make an exception to cover it but the next time I heard from the office it was to book me in for more fillings. I told them I'd like to sort out this cleaning bill (which I needed to pay for out of pocket) before doing any more work. I heard nothing.. until I received a call and then an email about booking me in for more work. I told them I didn't want to come back but they still keep hounding me. I have a hard time believing these other perfect 5-star reviews.
I would not recommend Dr Wong. He was rude and condescending towards his employees. On one occasion I was in for a large filling and the dentist left me in the middle of the drilling part to go tend to another patient. I sat for over 20 minutes, my mouth filled with apparatus (very uncomfortable) waiting for him to come back. I would have complained but I was unable to speak. Very frustrating. Once he came back in the room he offered no apology or explanation he just continued with his work. Stark contrast to my last dentist who was always very personal and would never have left me in them midst of a procedure.
