Wong, Garrick F.
Dr. Gary Wong is an orthodontic and dentofacial orthopedic specialist who has practiced in Greenwich, Connecticut for the past twenty-four years. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Tufts School of Dentistry; and completed his Postdoctoral Program in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine. Dr. Wong has taught as a clinical instructor in the Undergraduate Dental Program at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine; and was also an associate professor in the Graduate Orthodontic Program at New York University, College of Dentistry.
Beyond his basic orthodontic training, Dr. Wong has always been a strong believer of Continuing Education. This way he has been able to keep up with the latest trends in orthodontic methods and technologies. One of his most recent continuing education experiences includes the completion of his second Invisalign Orthodontic Master’s Program.
In growing children and adolescents, Dr. Wong can use a variety of methods that utilizes their growth potential. This allows him to improve/correct any pre-determined growth patterns or destructive oral habits that are causing the patient’s malocclusion. In adult orthodontic cases, there is no growth to help correct their malocclusions. Therefore, the orthodontic treatment goals, methods and prognosis are very different from that of a growing child. In more complicated adult cases, the lack of growth sometimes makes it necessary to design an interdisciplinary treatment plan. This requires collaboration with the patient’s general dentist, and/or other dental specialists.
Dr. Wong’s orthodontic practice has prided itself in providing the highest quality of service for every child, adolescent or adult patient that come to his office. He has always believed in maintaining the highest level of professional ethics, and he will only start orthodontic treatment if and when it is appropriate to do so. His capable and friendly staff has always tried to make every patient’s orthodontic treatment an enjoyable experience in a comfortable, relaxed environment.
