Dr. Bridget Ko is a specialist in Orthodontics.
I come to Southern New Hampshire Orthodontics with over 10 years of experience practicing pediatric dentistry and orthodontics in New York City, Atlanta and the greater Boston area. I grew up with a father who is a pediatric dentist and orthodontist and a twin sister who also became an orthodontist! I truly enjoy serving our community through my orthodontic profession. Having the opportunity to be part of my patients’ lives as their bites and smiles are transformed brings joy to my day. I am passionate about making people’s lives better through good oral health and truly enjoy giving people confidence when they smile.
I attended Boston College for my undergraduate education and received a BS in Biochemistry. I continued on to the University of Pennsylvania for dental school, earning my Doctor of Dental Medicine degree in 2004. While at Penn, I spent extensive time at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s Pediatric Dentistry and Plastics and Reconstructive Surgery Departments. I then completed postgraduate training at New York University College of Dentistry where I received my certificate in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. While in Atlanta, I was on staff at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, where I worked in the Craniofacial Clinic, providing orthodontic care to patients with Craniofacial anomalies.
I believe that it is important to stay current with the latest techniques in orthodontics. Each year, I attend the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) annual conference. I have attended the inaugural World Society of Lingual Orthodontics Meeting and am Invisalign certified. I am an active member of the American Association of Orthodontics (AAO), the American Dental Association (ADA), NH Dental Society, MA Dental Society, and Christian Medical Dental Association. I am a past diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics (ABO).
When I am not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my family. My husband, Steve, is a pediatrician, preventive medicine physician and pastor (he received his M.Div locally a Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary). We enjoy participating in dental and medical missions to countries, recently, to Guatemala and Tanzania, treating people who rarely have a chance to see a dentist. I have been an avid marathon runner, qualifying for New York City and the Boston Marathon several years in a row. A personal highlight was finishing in the top 100 Female USA runners for the 2005 New York City Marathon!
