Our dental clinic was established in April 1987 at Tanglin Shopping Centre, Singapore. From the outset, our dental practice was designed to provide evidence-based oral health care in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Sit back and relax ..., enjoy the music, watch a movie (for longer appointments), or admire our ceiling artwork!
With our emphasis not only on providing comprehensive oral health care, but also incorporating prevention as the cornerstones of our practice philosophy, we have built up a loyal patient base both locally and from overseas.
Our practice is committed to upgrading, not only in materials and equipment, but more importantly in knowledge and the appropriate application of science and changing technology for the benefit of our patients.
For an overview of the range of dental treatment and services, please refer to our Dental Services web page. In order for us to provide you with the quality of care, it is preferable that you book an appointment so that we can reserve sufficient time for you. You may telephone our practice manager, Sherry Koh at (65) 6732-8908 during office hours or e-mail us to reserve your dental appointment.
We also provide emergency dental services after office hours for tooth trauma and toothache where patients want to save their teeth rather than have them removed. Telephone (65) 6732-8908. The answering machine will provide instructions on how to contact us. Please note that after office hours fee applies. Should you want your tooth removed (or extracted in dental parlance) after hours, we would recommend you see the dentist on call at the accident and emergency unit of any public or restructured hospital.
