F. Timothy Leong, DMD

Choosing a dentist for you and your family is one of the most important decisions you can make for your health. It’s vital to choose one with a dedication to continuing education and a commitment to providing the best care possible. Dr. Leong, at Bear Canyon Dentistry, fits the requirements on every level. Dr. Leong began his education at Washington State University, and from there completed his dental degree at the Oregon Health Sciences University. He made his next move to San Antonio, TX, where he served his country and fellow soldiers in the Air Force.

Following his service, Dr. Leong moved to Tucson where he, and his practice, has served the community since 1983. During that time, he has proven his dedication to providing exceptional, up to date care. His continuing education hours far exceed the state’s requirements. Dr. Leong is also a member of several dental organizations, including the American Dental Association, the Arizona State Dental Association, Southern Arizona Dental Society, and several dental related study clubs, among others. He is also a former president of the local chapter of the Richard Tucker Cast Gold Academy. Dr. Leong currently is a faculty club member of Spear Education receiving advanced training in comprehensive dentistry. His is also a premiere member of cerecdoctors.com which provides complete training in digital dentistry.

When Dr. Leong isn’t providing high quality to the Tucson community with experience and humor, he spends his free time participating in various sports, pointing his camera at an assortment of subjects, and enjoying time working on computers.
