Operations Of Dental Clinics
We operate strategically located dental clinics that provide a comprehensive range of dental care services. Most dental care performed in Singapore is categorised as General Dentistry.
General dentistry includes preventative care, diagnosis and treatment planning, as well as procedures such as fillings, crowns, bridges, dentures and extractions. Specialty dentistry such as orthodontics, periodontics, endodontics, prosthodontics and paediatric dentistry, represents the remaining dental care services.

Our Wide Range Of Service Offerings
General Dental Treatment
Our general dental treatments include: examination and diagnosis, treatment planning, scaling, polishing, fluoride treatment, fillings and extractions as well as treatment for dentine hypersensitivity (sensitive teeth) and patient education. All our dental clinics are equipped with dental X-ray facilities, some with OPG and lateral cephalometric X-rays. An OPG is a panoramic scanning dental X-ray of the upper and lower jaw. A lateral cephalometric X-ray shows the side view of the head.
Dental implants are titanium fixtures placed in bone to replace the root of a missing tooth. They restore appearance, function and speech and can eliminate discomforts associated with wearing dentures. They are used to replace one or more missing teeth, as well as restoring a totally edentulous jaw (completely missing teeth). It also can be used to secure a removable full denture in the mouth, thereby securing it more effectively during speech and function.
Paedodontics or paediatric dentistry refers to provision of oral healthcare services to children aged one to 17 years. Every child is prescribed a comprehensive oral healthcare programme catered to his own needs with the aim of helping the child to achieve optimal oral health. Provision of care includes both restorative and preventive components with emphasis on prevention and early interception of oral diseases. It also includes trauma and emergency treatment, for instance sports injury, falls or minor accidents.
Aesthetic dentistry is a field of dentistry concerned especially with the appearance of a dental restoration as achieved through its form and colour. It includes dentures, orthodontics, crowns and bridges, implants, bonding, veneers and teeth whitening.
Periodontics deals with the diagnosis, prevention and control of periodontal or gum diseases. Our periodontics services include supervised oral hygiene methods, non-surgical and surgical scaling, and root planing to achieve a healthy oral environment conducive for the retention of teeth, dental prosthesis and implants.
Prosthodontics is a field of dentistry that restores tooth structure and replaces missing teeth and soft tissue, with an emphasis on restoring natural function and appearance. Our prosthodontics services include: inlays, on-lays, veneers, crowns, bridges, dentures, implant restorations and oral rehabilitation. We also manage para-functional anomalies, such as bruxism (grinding of teeth), temporo-mandibular joint disorder (pain and inflammation affecting the jaw joint and associated muscles), snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.
Endodontics is a field of dentistry that deals with the tooth pulp and the tissues surrounding the root end of a tooth. The pulp (containing nerves and other soft tissue) can become diseased by deep decay of the tooth or injured when a tooth is chipped or fractured in a traumatic incident, and is often unable to repair itself; if it dies, root canal treatment is required. The most common procedure done in endodontics is root canal therapy. Our endodontic services include: pulp capping, root canal treatment or retreatment, endodontic surgery, bleaching of discoloured nonvital teeth, treating traumatic tooth injuries and diagnosing and treating dental pain.
Orthodontics is concerned with the treatment of dento-facial irregularities or malocclusions (improper bites), which may be a result of dental irregularity and disproportionate jaw relationships, amongst others. Orthodontic treatment involves fixed and/or removable braces. It can be carried out for (i) functional reasons (to improve biting efficiency and speech), (ii) practical reasons (to improve oral hygiene hence minimizing dental diseases and to reduce risk of injury to protruding teeth), and (iii) aesthetic reasons (to improve one’s appearance which may enhance one’s selfesteem and confidence).
Oral surgery is a field of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis and management of the diseases, injuries, and defects of the human mouth, jaw and associated facial structures. Our services include medical and surgical services such as dentoalveolar and wisdom tooth surgeries, dental implants, sinus-lift procedure, bone grafting as well as adjunct surgery to orthodontics.
