Dr. Denise Tong’s fascination with dentistry began when she was a high school senior and was hired for her first job at a dental office in San Francisco. She worked with a mentor who provided compassionate, gentle, and high quality care to patients. It became Dr. Tong’s goal to provide that same level of care in the future.
Dr. Tong studied genetics at the University of California, Davis, and then went on to work at the UCSF Helen Diller Comprehensive Cancer Center. Subsequently she attended Tufts University School of Dental Medicine graduating with her DMD in 2013. While in Boston, Dr. Tong volunteered in local, national, and international outreach programs including the Boston Chinatown YMCA, the Vermont Special Olympics, the Navajo reservation in northern Arizona, and the Dominican Republic.
Dr. Tong’s awards include the Tufts Merit and Thomas B Hunt Scholarships, the American Student Dental Association Award for Excellence and the Massachusetts Academy of General Dentists Student Leadership Award.
Dr. Tong is an active member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentists, NH Dental Society, and the NH Women’s Dental Society. In her free time, she enjoys playing volleyball, skiing, cooking, and traveling. She lives in Bedford, NH with her husband.
Dr. Tong is very excited to join the Lindner Dental family and is firmly committed to providing the very best care to her patients.
