Dr. Achong hails from the caribbean island of Trinidad & Tobago. After spending most of his childhood on the tropical island, he had to give up his weekends of breakfast on the beach, surfing the warm waters and afternoon snoozes under the shady palm trees to attend high school in Ontario, Canada. At Appleby College high school he discovered snow, an intimate bond with his winter coat and the definition of cold.
After Dr. Achong completed his Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Toronto he decided to head south to Philadelphia to attend dental school. He was awarded his dental degree at the University of Pennsylvania. It was at Penn dental school he found his calling to take care of children so he left Philadelphia for Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Dr. Roger Achong is a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist in the United States and in Canada.

His artistic imagination is reflected when he builds lego creations with his children. Dr. Achong loves to take care of all children. His own children tell their teachers, ‘daddy loves to do fillings, clean teeth and put braces on.’
