About 99% of hair loss treatments in Singapore that you see advertised on local media do NOT work at all. You probably know exactly which adverts I'm talking about - they often feature a Mediacorp artiste.

By 2050, 5 million Singaporeans will be myopic. 15% of this group will have high myopia, which is defined as having a prescription above 500 degrees. It's associated with serious eye conditions, such as retinal detachment, cataracts and glaucoma.

Children who develop myopia by preschool or primary school are at an increased risk of high myopia in adulthood. The key to reducing high myopia is to delay early onset myopia in children.

Friends and family often ask me how to find the best dentist and dental clinic in Singapore for their needs.

As a clinician who's headed a dental group over the last 10 years, I've also seen many patients who are frequently confused over their dental treatment options. For example:

  • How come dental treatment costs can vary so much from one clinic to the next?
  • What are the different "kinds" of dentists and dental clinics in Singapore?
  • When should you see a GP dentist, versus a specialist?

In addressing these issues, I hope to share some of my personal insights as an "insider" to help you receive the best dental care for your condition.
