    Dr Soo-Wee Ong BDS, PGDipClinDent (Oral Surgery), DClinDent (Oral Surgery)
    Soo-Wee is a specialist oral surgeon in full-time private practice in Dunedin, NZ. Having previously been a general dentist for nearly 10 years, he understands the daily struggles of carrying out oral surgery during the day, especially when the patient has been “fitted in” between other appointments!
    Carrying out stress free and efficient exodontia is not an easy task, and the responsibility does not always just falls on the dentist, but requires a team approach to provide the best outcome
    for your patients.
    Building confidence in oral surgery require dedication and perseverance, but the journey can be fun, fulfilling and extremely rewarding for your career.
