Their patients have left rave reviews which speak for themselves: Better Living Through Dentistry has  perfect, five star ratings  on both Google and Yelp. Dr. Kong also has a 4.92 star rating on Zocdoc.

“Dr Kong is simply outstanding. I have had plenty of dental work over the years, including several root canals, an implant, oral surgery etc. Dr. Kong is the only dentist that 1-said an additional procedure might be necessary but turned out NOT to be! (no additional payment for him) 2-in the space of a single 1 hour appointment he efficiently and effectively resolved 3 different issues – normally by an average dds would take and cost me to pay for at least 3 different appointments. I was really very impressed with his skill – never have seen a dentist work so fast without rushing and so competently. After all my experience with other dentists, I truly cannot recommend him enough and feel extremely lucky to have found him.”
