Dr Cecilia So
BDS Honors (USyd), MFDS (London), Grad Dip Clin Dent (Oral Implants) (USyd)
Dr So joins Northern Beaches Family Dental to provide treatment under local anaesthetic for our patients. She is happy to tackle the most difficult of teeth extractions, and provides surgical dental treatment for our patients who prefer not to have the expense of going to an Oral Surgeon. She has a kind and caring nature and always has her patient's best interests at heart. She has accreditation for theatre use at St George Private Hospital and Crows Nest Day Surgery, should patients prefer being treated under general anaesthetic in a hospital.
Dr So completed her Bachelor of Dental Surgery at University of Sydney in 2003, graduating with honours. With a special interest in surgery, Dr So advanced her training in the department of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery at the Royal Exeter and Devon hospitals in the United Kingdom, following which she completed her Fellowship in the Royal College of Surgeons (England) in 2006. Dr So also trained for two years in dental implant surgery at University of Sydney, achieving her Graduate Diploma of Oral Implants in 2010, and is now part of the steering committee for the program. She is an examiner for University of Sydney in both Oral Implants and Oral Surgery, and a mentor and visiting lecturer in Oral Implant Diploma.
Her main interest lies in providing her services to several private practices around Sydney and in the Blue Mountains region. Additionally, she is currently employed in the Department of Special Care at Westmead Hospital where she provides mainly surgical care for those patients with special needs including phobic patients. She is also actively involved in mentoring and training other dentists interested in the field and ensures continual professional development.
Dr So is also an active volunteer dentist, coordinating dental volunteers to Cambodia as the founder of the Project Cambodia Dental Clinic which provides free dental treatment to rural children who would otherwise not have access to any dental care and oral health.
