Dr Toh graduated from National University of Singapore in 1999. As an undergraduate, she was on the Dean’s list and awarded the Mummery Book Prize for best student in oral pathology. She received a scholarship from the National Dental Centre to pursue specialty training in paediatric dentistry in Melbourne, Australia.
After working at the Paediatric Dentistry Unit at the National Dental Centre, she moved to private practice. She still serves as a Visiting Consultant to the Cleft and Craniofacial Dentistry Unit at KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital and is a volunteer dentist at the AWWA School for the disabled and autistic children.
Dr Toh served as the Chairperson for the Chapter of Paediatric Dentistry, College of Dental Surgeons and the Vice President of the Society for Paediatric Dentistry (Singapore). She is also an appointed member of the Dental Specialist Accreditation Committee in Paediatric Dentistry, which assesses the qualifications, experience and training programmes of dentists who wish to qualify as specialists.
Dr Toh has many years of experience in the diagnosis and treatment of tooth decay and dental trauma for children, especially those who are fearful and anxious or who require extensive or complex treatment. She provides comprehensive preventive and therapeutic oral healthcare for her patients, as well as treatment under sedation and general anaesthesia. She has special interests in managing dental conditions of babies, medically compromised children and children with special needs. Her delight is in seeing young, fearful patients overcome their fear and anxiety to become happy, confident children looking forward to see their dentists.
Personally, Dr Toh loves being around children. She is a mother of 2 and also enjoys teaching preschoolers in Sunday school.
