Meet the Doctor
Dr. Singh is one of less than 1% of dentists in the US that is a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist and a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. She is a strong believer in providing high quality dental care for children in a fun, nurturing and compassionate environment. Her goal is to give her patients of all ages a proper foundation for excellent oral health - all while making the experience as fun and positive as possible!
Dr. Singh received her undergraduate education from the University of Florida in Gainesville, where she graduated with a BS degree in Psychology and subsequently earned her Doctorate of Dental Medicine degree in 2010. She then furthered her clinical practice by completing a General Practice Residency at Montefiore Medical Center (Bronx, NY) and then an Oral Oncology fellowship at the prestigious Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, where she treated children with a variety of special health care needs. She enjoyed working with children so much that she returned to Montefiore Medical Center to complete her 2 year speciality training in Pediatric Dentistry.
Dr. Singh is a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the American Dental Association, and the College of Diplomates. In her free time, she loves to travel, practice yoga, and spend time with her friends and family. She also has a strong passion for community outreach and has volunteered abroad in Ecuador.
While we take the practice of dentistry very seriously, we do not take ourselves too seriously. In fact, we love to have fun! Dr. Singh can often be heard singing to her patients, and loves to see them smile; hence - Singh and Smile!
Because some kids (and parents!) are apprehensive towards visiting the dentist, our number one goal is to help the whole family relax and feel comfortable. We understand that some children are anxious about visiting the dentist especially if they have had an unpleasant experience in the past. Dr. Singh utilizes her background in psychology not only to anticipate, but manage the child’s behavior by reducing negative imagery and keeping the visit as positive as possible. We try not to use words like “shot”, “needle”, “drill” or “hurt” as these words cause unnecessary anxiety and fear for your child. We want everyone – kids and parents – to have a positive experience and look forward to their visits at Singh and Smile Pediatric Dentistry!
