saw Dr. Leong yesterday for two fillings. She and her assistant, Lucy, were as friendly and professional as ever. Dr. Leong is a very talented dentist. She is gentle, patient and punctilious. Dr. Leong elevates dental work to an art form! I am grateful to be able to receive her care.

It was my first time visiting Waban Dental in Newton. I still have a little Dental anxiety post pandemic, but I felt so safe and relaxed the minute I walked in. My visit with Dr. Leong was incredible. She took the time to evaluate what my tooth needed and we discussed a treatment plan. She made sure I was very comfortable during the procedure. She was efficient and gentle. Her work is impeccable! Her assistant was so wonderful and kind. They are both very hard working and they work very well together. I am so happy I found my forever dentist!
