Dr Ruth Um
Dr Ruth Um completed her Doctor of Dental Medicine postgraduate degree at the University of Western Australia. She holds professional membership with the Australian Dental Association (ADA) and registration with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
Prior to immersing herself in the world of dentistry, she worked for several years as a pharmacist in both Australia and New Zealand. Now, she is totally captivated by teeth and gums!
She provides treatment for all aspects of general dentistry and enjoys taking time to understand what patients’ own treatment goals are. Her philosophy is to ensure that patients are relieved of pain, able to eat, speak and smile confidently, and also maintain a healthy foundation for teeth.
Dr Ruth endeavours to continually improve her skills and knowledge by attending professional courses and reading the latest research.
Outside of work, she enjoys running marathons, gardening and taking photos of her adorable dogs, Wilson and Milo.
