Dental Care 4 Kids brings to life the vision of Dr. Lynn Jacob and Dr. Yu-Shu Chiu, who aim to provide children with a warm, relaxing environment that encourages them to take an active role in caring for their teeth and gums. Dr. Jacob and Dr. Chiu are both the principle dentists and owners of the practice. They obtained their pediatric dental training together in University of Toronto, therefore they have similar philosophy toward the treatment plan goals and objectives.
After completion of her pediatric dental specialty training in University of Toronto, Dr. Chiu practiced in a private pediatric dental office in Calgary, provided comprehensive dental care under general anesthesia at Riverview Surgical Centre, and offered emergency dental care in Calgary Childrenís Hospital. She moved back to Toronto in 2008 and has been providing dental care for kids in Vaughan, Oshawa, and Scarborough. She is also a clinical instructor in the pediatric dental clinic in University of Toronto.
Dr. Chiu enjoys her regular yoga practice after work and goes to pediatric dental conferences yearly to obtain the most up-to-date information for her practice. Dr. Chiu is also familiar with Mandarin and is able to provide assistance directly to non-English speaking patients.
Dr. Lynn Jacob graduated from the University of Toronto Faculty of Dentistry in 1998. During her time in general practice, she volunteered with the Shout Clinic to provide dental care for street youth in Toronto and she held the position of governor for the Ontario Dental Association. She returned to the University of Toronto to complete her Masterís degree and specialty training in pediatric dentistry and has been practicing in Vaughan, Ajax and Mississauga. She currently serves as President of the Ontario Society of Pediatric Dentists and is a part-time clinical instructor at the University of Toronto Pediatric Dental programme.
Dr. Jacob spends most of her time outside of the office with her twin daughters and husband. Reading and practicing yoga are activities she enjoys in her spare time.
