Practice Owner – Dr James Wong
We like to introduce Dr James Wong as our new proprietor of Garden City Implant and Dental Centre (formally Gateway Dental Specialists). Over the last 2 years he has spent most of his time in Singapore as the sole implant and oral surgery consultant in a very well established dental practice with a 60year history. He carried out thousands of surgical procedures over this period and also travelled back to Perth once a month to service his group of referring dentists in the areas of oral surgery and dental implants.
He has now decided to return to Perth full time, as he just can’t stay away from the beaches and the sunshine.
