Dr. Nina Ong
Dr Nina Ong graduated from Griffith University with a Bachelor of Oral Health in Dental Science and Master of Dentistry. She was awarded the Griffith Award for Academic Excellence for each year of her dental studies as well as the A-Dec Award for Excellence in Simulation Laboratory.
Nina has worked in all aspects of the dental field until becoming a dentist herself. Although born and bred in Brisbane, Nina has also lived in Far North Queensland where she worked for government clinics and school dental vans. Nina enjoys all aspects of dentistry, with particular interests in paediatric dentistry and endodontics. She has a gentle approach to dentistry and holds the belief and expectation of delivering the best quality work for her patients.
Nina is of Vietnamese heritage and can speak fluently in both Vietnamese and English. Perhaps the only thing that comes close to her passion for dentistry is her love for cooking, particularly creating traditional Vietnamese dishes for her young family. Her toddler son enjoys helping her cook and of course eating all the authentic Vietnamese dishes she makes.
