Dr. Jeffrey Kwong

Dr. Jeff earned his dental degree with highest honors in Cleveland, Ohio at Case Western Reserve University. He loved it there so much he decided to stay on to complete his orthodontic specialty training. He received the clinical award at his graduation. In addition to his Doctorate in Dental Surgery, he obtained his Master of Science in Dentistry with a Certificate in Orthodontics. Dr. Jeff’s master’s thesis on conebeam 3D x-ray technology was published in the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, an internationally acclaimed and recognized orthodontic journal. Yet, the best thing that happened during his time at school was meeting his wife, Dr. Lisa Ngo.

Dr. Jeff decided to pursue a career in orthodontics because his own orthodontist made a great impact on his life. He believes that his kids help to keep him young at heart and allow him to relate to his patients. He is looking forward to meeting you and treating you with the utmost care and attention.
