Dr Wilson Chen B.D.Sc. – Melbourne University 2010

Dr Wilson Chen DentistWilson was born in Shanghai, China, and migrated with his family to Australia at the young age of 11. Growing up in Melbourne, Wilson quickly grew accustomed to the vibrant culture and lifestyle there, and was very proud to call Australia his new home.  After completing his high school education, he went on to study Dentistry at the University of Melbourne and graduated in 2010.

Now a very focused and dedicated dentist, he always gives 100% to each patient under his care. Wilson has developed a very loyal patient base since joining our practice, building a rapport with patients of all ages. Professionally, Wilson takes a keen interest in participating in continuing professional development courses. He is always learning about new techniques and technologies in the field of dentistry, in order to provide his patients with the best possible treatment and care.

Since graduating from University, Wilson has completed many additional accredited dental training courses including Progressive Orthodontics Seminars and ClearCorrect Invisible Braces. He also has a very keen interest in cosmetic dentistry including veneers, dental crowns & bridges as well as dental implant restorations.

Wilson has been the Chairman for the Northeast Dental Group of the Victorian Dental Association since 2015. He is closely involved in organising continuing professional development seminars for all the local dental professionals, and actively campaigns for better oral and dental health awareness in the local community.

Dr Valerie Cheong B.D.Sc. – Melbourne University 2011

Dr Valerie Cheong DentistValerie started out her dental career at Northeast Health, where she gained invaluable experience working in a team environment to look after patients from the local community. She gained an appreciation for preserving everyone’s natural dentition for as long as possible, offering many treatment options to reach that goal.

Since joining our team at Michelson’s Dental Surgery in 2014, Valerie regularly receives compliments on her gentleness when providing dental treatment. Her friendly demeanor can calm even the most anxious patients. Up to date with her continuing professional education, she can often be found attending various accredited courses to expand her knowledge and clinical skills. Valerie has a keen interest in orthodontics and is able to provide our patients with traditional braces or clear aligners.

Valerie grew up in Brunei, and moved to Melbourne in 2007 to pursue her education in Dentistry at the University of Melbourne. When asked about Brunei (which happens very frequently), Valerie describes it as a small country with a close-knit population. It is no wonder that she quickly became acquainted with our lovely town when she moved to reside in Wangaratta in 2011. Now a part of the local community, Valerie enjoys exploring all the beauty the North-East region has on offer, in particular, its delectable wines.
