Over the past two decades, Prof Ong has been involved in clinical dental education of the oral health care team (dental assistants, oral health therapists, dental officers, residents, registrars, associate consultants) whilst maintaining an active clinical practice in periodontics in NDCS. She is presently Clinical Associate Professor and Programme Associate Director to the Master of Dental Surgery (Periodontology) Residency Training Programme, Faculty of Dentistry, NUS. She enjoys the opportunity to educate and mentor graduate students. Her first foray into research started during her 3-year periodontic residency programme at the University of Michigan in the mid-1990s. Over time, her research with collaborators focuses on clinical outcomes and patient reported outcome measures in relation to non-surgical and surgical periodontal therapy. She has a particular interest in periodontal regeneration and mucogingival considerations in the periodontic-orthodontic interrelationship. Recently she started working with her residents on a clinical trial studying the clinical and microbiological effects of probiotics in combination with non-surgical therapy in patients with periodontal (gum) disease. She also contributes to the dental profession through her involvement in professional bodies and providing continuing education talks both locally and regionally.
