Orthodontist and friend to our Director Celine, and a strong supporter of her efforts in developing the local arts scene, we have with us today Dr. Poon, founder of My Braces Clinic!

Dr. Poon Kee Hwang

Developing her very own - My Braces Clinic
"It is my dream to build an Orthodontic practice that provides quality and state-of-the-art braces care to patients of all age-groups in a fun, relaxing environment, with a team that is passionate in what they do. Check out our fish-tanks-in-the-sky!

Fishes Overhead!
In short, I wanted to design a practice that I know I would love to go to myself!

My practice is a place where patients become friends. Some of my patients and interns go on to become dentists too, and even one is going to become an Orthodontist herself!"

Getting that Perfect Smile
"Smiles are crafted by paying special attention to how teeth interact with facial aesthetics. A patients first visit is my favourite. I love studying the smile in relation to the overall face, the bite issues, and working with my patients to formulate a plan together. 

Never too young, or old to smile!
It is especially satisfying to watch my patients get psyched about their dental future!" 

Loving her Line of Work
"Being a Braces Specialist gives me the privilege to do what I love on a daily basis. Meeting new patients, understanding their desire and concerns before formulating a plan together on what I call my patient "storyboard". This gives me great satisfaction!

Lovely gesture for everyone
I love to watch my patients' excitement as their smiles unfold. Each patient is unique and each person gives me an opportunity to showcase what makes Orthodontics special."

On Solid Ground
"I received my Orthodontic Masters training on a scholarship at the National University of Singapore, with dual accreditation from the Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh. I believe in striving hard for excellence, and have worked hard towards achieving my Distinctions and Dean's Lists awards!

After graduating, it was equally important for me to pursue further education, and I trained under the very best for my Lingual Foundation. I still continue such training as it sharpens my skills and reassures my patients that they are receiving up-to-date, quality care." 

Giving Back
"It is important for me to nurture future orthodontists; therefore I enjoyed being a clinical supervisor for the Post-Graduate Orthodontic Program at University, hosting tutorials and clinical discussions with residents."

With extremely strong credentials to support her craft, Dr. Poon has been invited as a frequent speaker to several local and international conferences. But, what is Dr. Poon like beyond her work? 
"I am a Singaporean with strong links to Penang (My mother's hometown). I have known my husband and best friend for 19 years and counting, and we have one young Princess! We are also Parents to Kopi & Sugar, our two 'Rojak' dogs! 

I have a powerboat license and ride bikes in Thailand, plus, I wakeboard too!"



With several of our students having frequented the very friendly Dr. Poon, she continues to provide quality care, and of course special packages for all CJ students!

An inspirational figure to many of us here, we wish Dr. Poon the very best in her endeavours!
