Outside of dentistry, Dr. Michael loves to tinker and learn everything from building computers to woodworking. However, he most enjoys his time with his family. He and his wife, Claire, were married in 2016, but have shared their lives together since 2005. They have two young daughters, Vanessa and Liana, as well as their dog, Penny. Together, the Wongs love to travel to Disney resorts, eat at all of the “foodie” spots in the Bay Area, watch the newest shows and movies and enjoy fresh air with the kids at local parks.
