During his undergraduate studies, he was awarded the Dr Tay and Partners Gold Medal for Best all round Final year student, the University Bronze medal, the IFDEA medal for distinction in Paediatric Dentistry, and was placed on the Deans List.

Upon graduation, he joined the National University Hospital Dental Centre, where he honed his skills in advanced general dental practice. There, he treated both healthy patients as well as medically compromised adults and children, and was also involved in the hospital's public relations and education efforts. After years of hospital practice, Dr JD then joined the private sector, to provide family dental care with an emphasis in advanced technology and dental artistry.

As a strong believer in education and teaching, Dr JD has lectured internationally to other dentists on topics related to digital dentistry, and also teaches undergraduate dental students in the NUS Faculty of Dentistry.

He has also been trained in various dental implant systems. He has also underwent training at the famous Las Vegas Institute in the United States of America.

He always aims to treat the patient, not the pain, and believes that trust and a good relationship between dentist and patient is paramount to success in dental treatment. Dr JD also enjoys treating young patients and watching them grow up!

Dr JD is a member of the Singapore Dental AssocationAcademy of Cosmetic Dentistry (Singapore)Guild of Dental Graduates, and an affiliate member of the American Dental Association.
