Overview

DxD enables medical professionals to share their personal insights on an unaffiliated online platform.

Our goal is to have the most trustworthy and unbiased information in Singapore, so that you can make good decisions about your own health.

Finally, we are all too aware that medical stuff can be pretty dry to digest, so we aim to write all content in the most entertaining (yet accurate) way possible. 

FAQs about DxD:

1. Which doctors are invited to participate on DxD?

DxD relies on word of mouth recommendations from fellow doctors to identify specialists in each field. We then meet with each doctor in person.

Yes, it's time-consuming, but besides expertise, we think it's important that the doctor is friendly and enthusiastic about raising the level of healthcare awareness in Singapore.

2. Why did we start a free QnA?

People who don't know a doctor friend are disadvantaged in engaging with healthcare. The QnA addresses this by enabling doctors to share expert opinions directly with you.

Every question is also opened up to a range of doctors and specialities to answer, so you don't get a "one-sided view".

Don't just take our word for it. We strongly encourage you to do your own research, and to read up on other health sites. It's important that everyone takes responsibility for their own health.

3. Is the QnA sustainable if it's free?

Frankly, we don't know. The platform will always be free, because that's the reason it was set up - to help people.

Doctors who contribute do so to share their knowledge and experience. They are never paid or reimbursed for their answers. If you've benefitted, you can show your thanks by spreading the word to others who may benefit as well.

4. How to ask a good question on DxD

DxD's QnA lets doctors provide definitive, expert answers to important health questions.

The goal for each question on DxD is that it becomes the best resource for anyone else looking for the answer to that question.

Questions should be clearly written

The question must be clear from the question title itself; it should not depend on the question details. Question details should make clear how answers can meet their expectations.

Questions should be grammatical

DxD requires correct spelling, punctuation, grammar and capitalization to be used in questions. A question should consist of complete sentence(s) and end in a question mark.

Questions should be concise.

As a general guideline, questions should be no longer than 2 sentences, and only 1 question should be asked at a time. If you want to ask more than 1 question, submit them separately.

Questions should comply with DxD site policies

Medical questions that contain patient-specific facts are not allowed, and may be deleted or reworded to describe a general situation.

Questions may be deleted by moderators if they contravene policy. A question can be merged into another question if both ask the same thing.

Adhering to these guidelines will ensure that:

1. Your question is approved.
2. You get better answers from doctors.
3. Your question is answered more quickly - good questions are usually answered within hours because DxD moderators queue them to be answered first. 

5. How to use the QnA correctly (please read!)

To prevent the QnA from being shuttered, you can help by using it responsibly:

DO NOT take any answers for medical advice.

DO NOT treat it as a doctor consultation - it will never replace a face-to-face doctor consult and examination, for obvious reasons.

DO NOT use it in an urgent medical situation. Go and see your doctor.

To ask a question:

  1. Register for a free account, so that you'll be notified when a doctor answers.
  2. Do not include any personal identifiable information in your question - the QnA is publicly visible.
  3. Doctors will usually reply within 24 - 48 hours. More opinions will continue to be added on, so you can check back later.

DOCTOR'S GUIDE TO ROOT CANAL TREATMENT COST IN SINGAPORE

You feel your tooth hurt, and the ache radiates all the way up to your temples. You feel as if there is an electrical storm going through your brain and your brain’s convulsing in sheer excruciating pain.

You’re thinking it’s the end. "Just take it out doctor, end it all."

Whilst the straightforward approach to resolving a damaged and inflamed tooth is simply to extract it out, the consequence of doing so is quite jarring.

There will be a gaping hole in your smile, or a hole in the arch that makes chewing difficult.

You’d likely start by asking friends and family. If that fails, you do an online search. Then you read forums and blogs about the doctor or clinic. That’s a good approach, but chances are you won’t find the right doctor!
