Situated in Paragon Medical Suites, right in the heart of Orchard Road, we serve a wide pool of patients referred from dental practices around the country. Our practice also sees and manages a sizeable number of expatriates, foreigners and tourists. Most of our staff is bilingual, and conversant in English and Mandarin. Do not be too concerned if you speak another language as the expressions of dental pain is often not too dissimilar around the world.
Although we keep our operating hours family-friendly for our staff, we do attend to endodontic emergencies after office hours. This usually involves a phone conversation to establish the extent and severity of the problem, and if necessary an expedited clinical appointment. Due to the nature of such cases, a surcharge is usually added to the usual fee structure for such after office hour visits.
