In 2015, he was conferred an honorary Fellowship to the International College of Dentists, Michigan USA , for his outstanding contributions to the dental fraternity in Singapore, leading to multiple mentions as a leading dental surgeon in Singapore in the Leading Physicians of the World publication based in New York, USA.

Of note are also multiple mentions in the Straits Times, LianheZaobao, 938FM, Mind your Body and a myriad of other social media platforms. Since graduating in 2003, Dr Tan has travelled to over 35 cities all around the globe and has attended over a 100 postgraduate dental seminars, symposiums, exhibitions, courses and internships to the best and most well respected dental practices in the world, bringing back best practices and knowledge to his own group practice: Elite Dental Group, which he founded in 2013.

Dr Gerald Tan has obtained wide experience after serving as a commissioned dental officer at the Singapore Armed Forces, National Dental Centre Singapore, SingHealth Polyclinics and the School Dental Centre, Health Promotion Board before moving out to the private sector.

As a general practitioner, he discovered his natural talent and calling for Aesthetic Dentistry and Implant Dentistry, as he realised his training and skills suited patients looking for a more personalised and bespoke service, blending beauty with strength and function, with minimal pain and fuss.

Dr Tan’s bespoke custom smile design process starts with listening to the clients’ wants, desires and concerns and that is very often what matters most, before a unique treatment plan can be tailored. Dental anxiety is a significant concern for many of his patients, and he is proud to share with his patients that every system, protocol, staff training method and equipment that he has implemented in Elite Dental are catered to create the most comfortable patient experience.

Besides his interests in Dental Aesthetics and Implants, Dr Tan is a strong advocate of combining modern computerized dental technology with traditional values of meticulous craftsmanship to create beautiful smiles .

He is also volunteers on medical mission trips to developing communities such as the trips organised by the Medical Ministry of Wesley Methodist Church.

$350 FOR BRACES? THE CAROUSELL DENTIST WILL SEE YOU NOW
February 1st, 2018

Having worked as a dental surgeon in the public and private sector for a good number of years now, I've seen a lot of strange practices in the dental industry.

In particular, social media platforms have seen an explosion of irresponsible dental marketing. Examples include:

  • Influencers promoting DIY teeth whitening kits of unknown origin
  • Smile therapists offering teeth whitening at beauty parlours
  • Aesthetic doctors who open spas and hire beauticians to offer dental treatment to patients

DENTAL IMPLANT COSTS IN SINGAPORE: A DENTIST TELLS ALL
February 1st, 2018

In the world of dentistry today, there's a whole lot of unknown factors where dental implant costs are concerned.

When you buy a car, you want to know exactly what you're paying for - be it the car make and country of origin, OMV/COE price, or fuel efficiency. A 4 series BMW coupe, for example, will naturally cost you much more than a Mazda sedan.
