Meet The Expert: Dr Samintharaj Kumar - Dentist

youtube video preview

Meet Dr Samintharaj Kumar, a passionate dentist and the founder of Nuffield Dental Clinics. He was also the one who brought the All on 4 (a revolutionary dental technique) invented by Professor Paulo Malo to Singapore. 

He decided to specialise in the field of dentistry because he feels that dentistry lends itself to both the science and the art of crafting smiles, which suits him perfectly in terms of personality.

He was intrigued by the fact that without surgery, he could help people look better and improve their outlook on life. To him, beauty is all about retaining the essence of who you are, without changing too much. 

Watch to find out what he likes about dentistry, his nifty tricks on how to make a patient relax, and his motto in life.

This Clinical Dietician Shares His Best Tips On How To Eat Healthier In Singapore

The phrase, "you are what you eat" should be taken literally. The food and drinks that you ingest have a direct impact on your health and well-being. 

Did you know that your body replaces almost 300 billion cells every day? The foods you consume are the source of building materials for these cells.

If your diet is constantly filled with foods that are low on nutrients, you're not giving our body much to work with. However, consistently maintaining strict diets or finding clean food can seem really challenging. So, what's the fix?

Dr Naras Lapsys, a clinical dietician, hosted an AMA session and answered a lot of reader questions on how to eat healthier in Singapore.

He has a PhD in molecular genetics, a master’s degree in nutrition and dietetics, and has had more than 14 years of experience in this field. Here's what you need to know.
