Meet Dr Michael Chong

Dr Michael was born in Malaysia and completed most of his education in Adelaide. When he was just two weeks away from starting university to become an engineer, Dr Michael broke the news to his parents that he wanted to become a dentist. Initially, they were not convinced it was the right choice for their son. Dr Michael knew, however, that working in a health-related field helping others was what he wanted to do. He has changed the face of dentistry in Perth for over a decade due to his holistic approach to dental care.

Education and Training

Dr Michael attended dental school at University of Adelaide, graduating in 1998. He practiced in Malaysia and Singapore before coming to Perth in 2007. Over the years he has received extensive postgraduate training in Australia and internationally in holistic dental treatments such as orthodontic therapies, mercury safety, craniofacial pain and TMJ therapy.

Holistic Dental Care for Full-body Health

Dr Michael knew early on that he would practice metal-free dentistry and look at each patient as a whole person. “Since university, I have tried to push to the forefront of dentistry.” From being the only student in his year to fully adopt the concept of amalgam-free dentistry to introducing implants to his earlier places of work, Dr Michael has always explored advanced techniques and modern materials to provide the best long-term care for his patients.

He enjoys having a direct impact on the health of patients with conditions such as chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, sleep disturbances and TMJ disorders. “By exploring new techniques and equipment and re-evaluating old ‘tried and true’ ones, my team and I hope to redefine current concepts in dentistry, such as preventative and minimally invasive dentistry.”

Those patients who have sought help elsewhere for years often find the help they need at Image Dental.
