About DxD

DoctorxDentist enables medical professionals to share their personal insights on an unaffiliated online platform. You can find out more about our contributing experts, who are all doctors with years of experience, on this page.

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 information can be pretty dry to digest, so we aim to write all content in a plain, clear, yet medically accurate way. 

Frequently Asked Questions about DoctorxDentist:

 

1. Which doctors are invited to participate on DoctorxDentist?

DoctorxDentist 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 having expertise, we think iti is important that the doctors answering questions on this website are friendly and enthusiastic about raising the level of healthcare awareness in Singapore.

2. Why did DoctorxDentist start a free Q&A?

People who do not know a Singapore doctor friend may be disadvantaged in learning about healthcare. Our website's Q&A addresses this by enabling doctors to share expert opinions directly with you.

Questions are also opened up to a range of doctors and specialities to answer, so you do not 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 websites. It is important that everyone takes responsibility for their own health.

3. Is the Q&A sustainable if it's free?

Frankly, we don't know. But our 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 have benefited, you can show your thanks by spreading the word to others who may benefit as well.

4. How can I ask a good question on DoctorxDentist?

DoctorxDentist's Q&A lets doctors provide definitive, expert answers to important health questions.

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

Your question should be clearly written.

Your question must state your medical concern clearly.

Questions should be grammatical.

Your question must have correct spelling, punctuation, grammar, and capitalisation. 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 two sentences, and only one question should be asked at a time. If you want to ask more than one question, submit each question separately.

Questions should comply with DoctorxDentist site policies.

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

Questions may be deleted by moderators if they contravene policy.

A question may be merged into another question if both questions 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 DoctorxDentist moderators queue them to be answered first. 

5. How to use the Q&A correctly

To prevent the Q&A from being shuttered, you can help by using it responsibly:

DO NOT consider any answers to be medical advice.

DO NOT treat the Q&A as a doctor consultation - the Q&A and all content on our website will never replace a face-to-face doctor consultation and examination, for obvious reasons.

DO NOT use our Q&A and website in an urgent medical situation. Go and see your doctor in person.

To ask a question:

  1. Register for a free account, so that you will be notified when a doctor answers.
  2. Do not include any personal identifiable information in your question - the Q&A 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.

7 Eye Clinics in Singapore to Consider for LASIK (2020)

LASIK seems to be one of the most searched eye procedures in Singapore. It's not surprising; Singaporeans have one of the highest incidence rates of myopia in the world -- 65% of our children are myopic by 12 years old and more than 80% of young adults are short-sighted.

As there are many LASIK providers in Singapore, it's not easy to decide who you should trust to correct your vision. So, we did exhaustive research to put together a list of providers in Singapore we think you should consider when getting LASIK.

After all, you can only have one stab at improving your vision, right?

8 Orthodontic Clinics to Consider for Your Invisalign Treatment in Singapore (2020)

When we underwent Invisalign treatment over a decade ago, Invisalign was still relatively new in Singapore. This made the selection process a whole lot easier – there were only 3 or 4 clinics that offered the treatment.

There are now plenty of dental clinics in Singapore offering Invisalign. You may start your search by comparing them based on Invisalign costs in Singapore.

Besides that, however, you may have no clue which clinic is suitable for your needs. This post will help you decide which dental clinic you can choose to receive Invisalign treatment carried out by an orthodontist (braces specialist).
