Derek Wong, D.D.S., M.S.

Dr. Wong

I am very blessed to have chosen a career that positively impacts the lives of so many people and their families. Aside from helping others attain the smile they have always wanted, I enjoy getting to know the different personalities and interests of each of my patients. I believe in providing my patients with comfortable and effective orthodontic treatment. Having had braces twice myself, I understand how a healthy, confident smile can go a long way!

After earning my undergraduate degree from the University of California, Berkeley, I received my Doctorate of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) at the University of Southern California. Upon completing my doctorate, I continued my studies at USC to attain my specialty Certificate in Orthodontics, as well as a Masters in Craniofacial Biology (M.S.). Using the knowledge from all of my training, I am able to treat the full range of orthodontic needs, from young children and teens to adults.

Although I have completed all of my orthodontic training, I am always keeping up with the latest treatments and changing technologies. I attend various courses each year to increase my clinical skills so that I can provide the best possible care for my patients. I am also an active member in the following organizations:

  • American Board of Orthodontics
  • American Association of Orthodontists
  • Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists
  • American Dental Association
  • California Dental Association
  • San Gabriel Valley Dental Society

When I am not practicing orthodontics, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Jaime, and two sons, Riley and Brayden. I also love watching sports, especially the Lakers and USC football. I believe in smiling and laughing each day, and I hope that I can evoke those same feelings with everyone I meet!
