Our Mission

To grow the world's expert health knowledge and make it accessible for all

We envision a world where everyone – regardless of language or location – is empowered to make better informed health decisions.

Who we are

DoctorxDentist is a free Question and Answer platform where contributing doctors answer all your health questions.

Problem

99.9% of health knowledge is still not on the internet. Most of it is trapped within doctors' heads in the form of years of experience spent seeing patients, or buried in science papers and thick textbooks that only experts can understand.

Solution

DoctorxDentist gives health experts the power to easily share their knowledge. Having an online voice on an independent content platform multiplies the ability of doctors to help and effect change, from helping individual patients in front of them, to helping populations across the world.

Please note

Our Q&A is not a patient consultation and any information provided herein is not intended to replace consultation with a qualified medical professional. If you think you may have a medical emergency, call your doctor immediately. Always seek the advice of your doctor before starting or changing treatment.

Our Story

DoctorxDentist started off as a simple blog in 2016, where doctors and dentists could write educational articles and answer reader questions on an independent and unaffiliated platform.

Today, DxD is one of only 8,000 Health-On-The-Net certified websites worldwide and comprises 300 doctors from 33 different specialties actively participating to help readers.

Our Vision

The Road Ahead

As the platform grows, we will be able to provide larger and larger audiences to experts, get answers to more and more health questions, and have greater and greater impact on the world.

To do that, we are going to have to expand and improve the platform. Here’s the direction that DxD is headed towards:

1

Help billions to live healthier, happier, and longer lives by partnering more experts to share their knowledge.

Today, DxD is used by millions around the world. As more experts contribute, we can empower even more people to make decisions and take actions that improve their well-being and health outcomes.
2

Continuously improve answers to important health questions

Our platform will continuously update and improve every set of health questions and answers. Each page on DxD has to become the best resource for anyone looking for the answer to that health question.
3

Greater personalisation of content based on your needs and interests

Registered Users get a customised Feed and Weekly Digest according to the interests you select, the doctors you follow, and the posts you read. As you perform more actions on the site, our platform will adapt to your needs and interests to surface even more useful health content for you.
4

Expand DxD to even more countries and languages

DxD is currently in Singapore, Indonesia, China and Malaysia. We are building a world-class team of machine-learning experts and data scientists, in order to address the unique set of challenges ahead of us.
For example, by using AI to understand the health topic that users and doctors are writing about, we can expertly translate and recommend a doctor's content in English, so as to benefit an Indonesian patient with the same health query.

We are excited to expand DxD to even more countries and languages in future, as we continue working towards our mission to grow the world's expert health knowledge and make it accessible to all.
