Dr Chng is a Board Certified Paediatric Dentist. Valedictorian of her graduating class at the National University of Singapore, she was twice placed on the Dean's List and picked up numerous University Medals. Quick to identify her love for working with children, she pursued a diploma in Child Psychology after graduation which cemented her life-long decision to serve the paediatric population.

Receiving a scholarship from the Ministry of Health, she furthered her training at the University of Toronto, Canada where she received the Richard C.

She is currently the only paediatric dentist in Singapore to be dually Board Certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and the Royal College of Dentists of Canada.

Prior to joining private practice, she served as an Associate Consultant at National Dental Centre of Singapore where she gained valuable experience. Her main goal as a paediatric dentist is to provide kids with the best level of care whilst in a safe and friendly environment. She particularly enjoys guiding anxious children towards developing an excitement for their dental visits. Combined with a bubbly personality, she simply loves getting to know her patients and their parents and growing together with them.
