Dr. Shakti Singh finished his residency in Orthodontics at the Faculty of Dentistry, University of Toronto, and in 2015 became a licensed Orthodontic Specialist in Ontario. As a young dental student he was always fascinated by the “magic” done by orthodontists and their ability to move teeth and the huge psychosocial impact it caused in patient’s lives. He knew early in his dental career that he could make a positive impact on patients lives by practicing Orthodontics.
Originally, from New Delhi, Dr. Singh was an outstanding student accumulating numerous awards and achievements, including the Indian Dental Association Scholarship for a 1st place standing in the final year dental exams. Dr Singh immigrated to Canada and in his quest to become a dentist, he cleared the Canadian Dental Board Examinations in one go. He in fact ranked first (throughout Canada) in the Assessment of Fundamental Knowledge exam administered by the Canadian Dental Board in 2012.
Wanting to pursue orthodontics Dr. Singh was able to secure one of the only 3 spots available throughout Canada for residency in Orthodontics, for internationally trained orthodontists. This incidentally was the only spot available in Ontario at the Faculty of Dentistry, University of Toronto
