Meet Dr. Chong

After many years on the mainland for both school and professional practice, I am happy to be back home. I practiced orthodontics in Arizona and Washington for over seven years, but always missed the Hawaii culture, family and friends. I was drawn to orthodontics by the opportunity to enhance self-confidence and improve the lives of my patients. Seeing the transformation from the beginning of treatment to the final result is a unique and rewarding experience. I am excited to be part of the team at Holliday Orthodontics and look forward to creating beautiful, healthy smiles.

Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, trying new restaurants, going to the gym, running, and traveling.

“Orthodontic treatment is not at all hard or painful. In fact all I needed to do was wear the Invisalign and that was about it. The instructions were clear and simple, the office staff made it fun & comfortable. Thanks to this, my teeth are straight.” ~ Tim P.

“My experience with braces was fantastic. Before I got them I didn’t feel very confident that I would be responsible with my braces or know enough to not feel nervous about getting them. Yet they reassured me that the process could go great and they answered my constant questions with smiles.” ~ Kaitlyn B.

“Invisalign really works... If you hate the hassle of braces then Invisalign is truly the best thing for you. 6 out of 5 stars, hands down. I highly recommend Invisalign for anyone who wants the best results in the most comfortable and convenient way possible.” ~ Matthew G.

“I didn’t think there was anything wrong with my smile. After all, I had the smile all my life. The gap, from my mom and the overbite from my dad. My teeth began to shift at age 37, and a referral was made for braces... The results were phenomenal! I received compliments in a daily basis. My smile is better, brighter, and most of all my X-ray looks like a human instead of a horse, LOL!” ~ Montreal P.

“The Invisalign experience has been phenomenal! Initially I was worried about pain or discomfort. However, there was no pain and discomfort was at a minimum. Dr. Holliday and his staff took care of me wonderfully. This has far exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend Dr. Holliday and Invisalign!” ~ Gary Y.

“My overall experience was great. Everyone was very professional. They treated me great. I also got great results.” ~ Bradley A.

“Words can’t express how thankful I am for my new (and improved) smile… Mahalo Dr. Holliday and girls for treating me so great! Thanks a bunch. ~ Damien A.
