Dr Caroline Chung completed her Bachelor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Sydney in 2003. She went on to complete her Primary Examinations with the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons, and gained invaluable experience over the following years at two well established private practices, one in Sydney and the other on the NSW South Coast.
Caroline then continued her studies abroad at the University of Hong Kong, and completed a Master of Dental Surgery specialising in paediatric dentistry, and an Advanced Diploma in Paediatric Dentistry in 2009. She then sat college examinations, and through this gained Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in Paediatric Dentistry. Caroline also attained Membership in Specialist Dental Practice (Paediatric Dentistry) with the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons.
During her time overseas, Dr Caroline Chung was given the opportunity to present patient cases and research, and has done so internationally across countries including the IADR in Canada and IAPD in Germany. Caroline also had her postgraduate research published in a well recognised dental research journal.
Dr Caroline Chung has since been practicing as a registered specialist paediatric dentist in private practice in both Brisbane and Sydney. She is passionate about managing the oral health of children, and as a paediatric dental specialist, routinely treats children with anxiety and special needs. She also has a special interest in managing developmental defects in teeth, or “chalky” teeth, early childhood caries, oral surgery, and dental trauma.
Having experience with severe and multiple allergies on a more personal level, Dr Caroline Chung is also very allergy aware, with both the materials used, and any medications prescribed.
Born and bred in Sydney, Caroline now has two girls of her own to keep her grounded. She consults in referral based private practice in Five Dock and Chatswood. Having spent her high school years in the inner west, and being a local on the north shore, Caroline is delighted to be able to service these local communities she is so familiar with.
Dr Caroline Chung works closely with both her dental colleagues and other specialists, and has always strived to treat children with a long term, multidisciplinary approach in mind. Caroline feels strongly about supporting the local area, and has visited the nearby daycares and preschools to provide both oral health awareness directly to children, and information nights for parents.
