Meet the team


Mr Perkins Pong BDS - Dentist (GDC 60091)


Perkins qualified in 1985 from Dundee University and started his surgery here in Chadderton over 31 years ago.


Since then, the surgery has attracted a very loyal group of patients most of whom became members when the surgery went private in 2006. He regularly attends professional meetings and courses and keeps up to date with new technology and treatments. He is a member of the British Dental Association.


Mr Pong’s philosophy has always been “prevention is better than cure” and that is promoted through our membership plan, which aims to provide members with continuous quality dental care. Our patients often describe Mr. Pong as being caring and gentle, with an eye for detail and a commitment to excellent clinical care.
