Dentist inspired to care for the Central Valley in Fowler

News

FOWLER – Peggy Ting, DMD, has joined the dental team practicing at Adventist Health Medical Office – Fowler, located at 300 S. Leon S. Peters Blvd.

Ting brings 19 years of clinical experience to her dental practice. She specializes in general dentistry for the entire family, including: oral health exams, preventive care, restorative treatment, root canals, cleanings and dentures.

Ting completed her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree at the University of the East College of Dentistry, in Manila, Philippines. She is fluent in English, Mandarin, Fukienese and Tagalog.

An early interest in veterinary medicine turned into a passion for dentistry after Ting’s mother recommended she find a medical career that served more of the population in her native Philippines.

“There are very few people in the Philippines who can afford to take their pets to the veterinarian, so my mother convinced me that dentistry would let me serve more people,” she says.

Ting is inspired by the impact she has on patients’ lives. “When a patient arrives in pain, and we are able to relieve that pain and transform their smile, it is amazing to see their joy,” she says.

In her spare time, Ting enjoys playing guitar, going on walks and spending time with her dog, a corgi.

She is accepting new dental patients at Adventist Health Medical Office – Fowler, located at 300 S. Leon S. Peters Blvd. in Fowler. Appointments may be made by calling 559-834-1614.
