Meet Dr Dawn Teo
MBBS (S’pore), MRCS (Edinburgh), MMed (ORL), FAMS (ORL)

 

“The wonderful thing about working with children is that you get to develop a great relationship with the child and their families as you watch them grow and follow them throughout their childhood.”

Dr Dawn Teo is a USA fellowship trained consultant paediatric Ear Nose Throat (ENT) surgeon. She is also the Medical Director of The Children's Eye and ENT Centre, and was appointed Adjunct Assistant Professor in Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School.

“The best way to practice medicine is to treat every child as if they are your own.”

As a mother of 2 young children, she is acutely aware of how distressing it could be to bring a child to the doctors. This led her to create a child friendly clinic that her patients may actually look forward to going. Within this comfortable stress-free environment, she is dedicated to bringing the latest and best possible care to her patients.
