Dr. Kok-Tow Ng
Orthodontist in Jacksonville, FLKok-Tow Ng, DDS
Orthodontics gives me the unique opportunity to interact with all my patients on a personal level. The trusting relationships built up over time are priceless. The new smiles I am helping them achieve makes my work very rewarding. To know that I have helped thousands of patients achieve the smile they always wanted is the best feeling in the world. I've been blessed to have wonderful, incredible patients in the past 25 years and I learn a lot from each and every one of them, and they've enriched my life in return.
I received my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Malaya and continued on to the University of Florida for my orthodontic residency to become a specialist. I continue to participate in continuing education courses to keep up with new research and advanced techniques that will improve patient care. I am passionate about giving the best treatment available to all my patients.
I was born and grew up in Malaysia and currently reside in Jacksonville. I have a daughter, Kristy and a son-in-law Matt who are both in Portland, Oregon doing their respective medical residencies. I love traveling, both stateside and overseas. Reading is something I love to do whenever I find a time, my favorite being the Bible, biographies of important people and historical based fiction. I spend weekends pottering in my garden, having lunch with friends and serving in my church.
My community is very important to me. I volunteer in the dental clinic at the City Rescue Mission as well as with the Florida Baptist Mobile Dentistry Ministry. I also love to go on medical mission trips overseas to help those in need of dental care. I have been to Mexico, Honduras, Bolivia, Cambodia, Ethiopia and Indonesia with various Christian organizations. I also volunteer at the International Learning Center that minister to new immigrants in Jacksonville in various capacities.
