Wong Mun Loke
I enjoy teaching and have always wanted to be able to contribute to education. This was evident from the early days of my career, where as a dentist, I was actively engaged in patient education both at the chairside and at the population level. While I am still an advocate of health education, I have also pursued my interest in education from a different front as I deepened my interests in educating our young. Learning to engage my students; sharing with them my knowledge and experiences as well as inspiring them to apply public health principles and soft skills such as effective communication in their clinical practice are key ingredients which add much flavour to my role as an educator. Apart from my students, I also believe in building collegial communities of fellow educators who can encourage one another to bring out the best in everyone so that together, we will be able to scale the greatest heights in our efforts to educate and empower the next generation.
