Dr Natalie Wong
Dr Natalie Wong has been working in Sydney for several years and recently in the Blue Mountains. She graduated from the University of Melbourne and has gained a range of experience working in private practice.

She enjoys seeing both children and adults and has experience treating patients using nitrous oxide (happy gas) or sedation if needed.
Dr Natalie enjoys all aspects of general dentistry and has particular interest in cosmetic dentistry, oral surgery, implants, and root canal therapy. She is passionate about dentistry and keeping up with current developments and technology by regularly attending continuing professional development courses. She also volunteers for ADA NSW Red Cross dental clinics and overseas in Cambodia.
She is an Inner West local who enjoys exploring the area. Outside of dentistry, she loves to keep active hiking, dancing, skiing and swimming.
Ms Ashley Diep
Oral Health Therapist
Oral health is the main foundation to all confident and healthy smiles, which requires the help of a skilled Oral Health Therapist. Ashley’s dental career all began with her very own fear of the dentist due to her negative experiences as a child. This had greatly inspired her to break the connotations between dentistry with fear in the clinic to create a safe and comfortable setting for everyone to be in.
Completing her Bachelor’s degree at the University of Sydney in Oral Health, it provides Ashley with a dual qualification as a hygienist and therapist. Having a range of experience at the public dental hospitals, she has developed a special passion in children’s dentistry and management as well as adult periodontal therapy. Equally enjoying working on both adults and children, Ashley strives to deliver high quality preventative dentistry through her individualised tailored plan for each of her patients.
When she’s not in the clinic focusing, you will always catch Ashley engaged in an array of outdoor adventures, adrenaline activities and sports including oztag and snorkelling. Most importantly, in the kitchen learning her grandmother’s delicious recipes!
Dr Kingston Soo
Dentist & Proprietor
Dr Kingston Soo is a long time local of Sydney’s Inner West, attending Summer Hill Public School and Fort Street High School. Dr Soo completed dentistry at the University of Sydney in 2003.
His first six years as a dentist was spent working in Orange, where he developed a special interest in extracting wisdom teeth. He moved to the Shire and continued working in a private practice, before deciding to open his own surgery, Summer Hill Smiles, in Sydney’s Inner West.
Although he enjoys improving the smiles of patients through cosmetic dentistry, Dr Soo adopts a preventive long term approach where regular brushing is the best foundation of a great smile! In his spare time, you will most likely find him spending time with his wife and two little ones.
