Meet the Doctors


Dr. Vu Kong, DDS

Dr. Vu Kong first received a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from Michigan State University. Engineering’s technical aspects appealed to him and he applies them to his dental practice. He is a graduate of the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry and is a third generation dentist, as his father and grandfather were both dentists. He is a member of the American Dental Association and the Academy of General Dentistry.

Dr. Kong has high moral and ethical values and only recommends treatment that is necessary to the health of his patient. Each patient is treated like family and he especially enjoys working with Invisalign® and Six Month Smiles® cases because of the instant rewards it brings to the patient. Dr. Kong has completed numerous continuing education courses and strives to further his skills and expand his knowledge by attending multiple courses around the country.

Dr. Kong has a beautiful wife and two daughters that he can’t keep up with. He takes pleasure in traveling, staying active, and spending time with his family. He has a wonderful sense of humor, and he is fluent in Cantonese (Chinese).
