Dr. Tung was profiled by a major newspaper (Apple) columnist, Wai Yin Ko, from Hong Kong on the success of the implant he placed for her. She could not find a dentist to help her in Hong Kong after visiting three dentists.
Bicon, a large implant supplier from Boston has recommended Dr. Tung to patients who are seeking a skilled clinician in the three Prairie Provinces of Canada. Implants are a very large investment for a patient so finding someone who is willing to help and is highly educated is extremely important to people.
