Dr. Melissa Koh grew up in Markham, Ontario and received her Bachelor of Health Sciences (BHSc) at McMaster University. She then moved to London, Ontario and completed her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree (DDS) at Western University (UWO) – Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry. Coming from a long family line of dentists, she was always exposed to the exciting world of dentistry ever since she was young. She provided a wide range of dental services as a student in London at the UWO dental clinic, community centers, and covered night shifts at the dental emergency department at the hospital.
Dr. Koh stays up to date with her Continuing Education (CE) courses to learn about the new developments in dentistry. She is an advocate for preventive dentistry and is passionate about helping to improve her patients’ oral health. She places emphasis on building patient rapport and is dedicated to providing dental care that meets the needs of every individual that sits in the dental chair.
Outside of work, Dr. Koh is busy with her new baby daughter who always keeps her on her toes. She enjoys spending quality time with family and friends and invites them over often to her backyard gazebo with lots of ambient lighting. She loves to travel and see the world but is waiting for her daughter to be old enough so that she is not that family on the plane with a crying baby disturbing the peace. She is excited to work at Aurora Dental Studio.
