Dr MIREE CHO
Miree (rhymes with Siri), was born and raised in Melbourne. She is a second generation Korean, and elder sister to two cheeky little brothers. Dentistry has always been a passion for Miree, and she has been intrigued with the science and art behind the complexities of dentistry for most of her life. Miree enjoys meeting people and making sure they feel comfortable relaxed. As a child, Miree found she actually enjoyed going to her dentist, and she thinks that’s why she now likes people and teeth equally, and is very happy being a dentist and offering high quality care to all her patients.
Miree completed her first degree and graduated as a Bachelor of Biomedicine, at the University of Melbourne. She extended her studies with an Honours year. During her honours year, Miree was based at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne, taking part in a research project with grade one children. After completing this research project with the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute, Miree’s research paper was published in Academic Pediatrics, the official journal of the Academic Pediatric Association.
As an original Melbournian loving the coffee and hipster atmosphere, Miree adjusted well to the Sydney-sider lifestyle and completed her second degree, emerging with a Doctor of Dental Medicine from the University of Sydney. In her final year, she was awarded the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons (RACDS) Academic Prize along with her three research colleagues. Miree is always intrigued with the new technology and advancements in dentistry and continues to spend most of her time learning through education and professional development programs. She is a member of the Australian Dental Association and strives to provide the best standard of care to her patients.
As a newly settled Moss Vale resident, Miree is enjoying the freedom from congestion and big-city rush. When she’s out of the surgery, she enjoys playing a few classical tunes on the piano when she gets the chance. Although Miree has retired from her swim teaching days, she still enjoys the regular morning swim and has re-commenced her running adventures. You will be sure to see her sign up for more half marathons in the future. Her soccer boots have been collecting dust so they may need an outing on the green fields of the Southern Highlands soon!
