He has experience in the public dental service of Tasmania and also private practice in Perth.

DR SHERRY WONG

BDSc (UWA) - Principal Dentist
Sherry sees patients Monday to Thursday

Our amazing principal dentist Dr Sherry Wong graduated from UWA in 2008. She is a country girl from Australind (20 mins north of Bunbury) so as soon as she graduated, moved up north to Karratha to gain a wide range of experience as a country dentist. This meant that Sherry finely attuned her skills very quickly, with the ability to diagnose and treat a very broad range of dental situations. She is an expert in all fields of dentistry but if there is one speciality she is good at it’s at extracting even the most trickiest of teeth – and you won’t even feel a thing!

Sherry also loves seeing kids for a positive dental experience because she knows that great oral health starts when you’re young.

Sherry promises to be as patient, kind and gentle as possible with your treatment, whilst completing her work at an exceptionally high standard. She is very qualified in dealing with nervous patients – we try to make the experience as comfortable as possible.

Sherry believes that honesty and great communication is key to a good dentist-patient relationship. All aspects of treatment are explained thoroughly and without judgement. During a check or consult, all questions are welcome!
