DXD Admin from Singapore asked a question

Why do some general dentists in Singapore only choose to do the basics?

Why do some general dentist only choose to do the basics? I know of a general dentist who do not even have a X ray machine in her clinic. When i ask her, she say she does only the basics. She say she do not even do root planning. Why is this so?

Hi Colin,

Thank you for your question.

The procedures that each dentist may choose to do really depends on their comfort levels. There is no hard and fast rule nor guidelines dictating the work scope of the dentists.

If they feel the patient is best managed under the care of their fellow colleagues for certain procedures, they would then make the necessary referrals in the patient’s best interest.

Hope this helps!
