I recently saw Dr Yun for root canal treatment on my teeth. After examination, he explained to me what the issues were and his treatment plans, which I had no trouble with understanding. The treatment was done without any discomfort and smoothly. It's been about 3 weeks since the treatment and I have no issue at all.

As I haven't been for any dental treatment for the past 2 years, it's not a surprise that my oral health's not in great shape; tooth decay, tartar buildup and gum infection. 

I realised that I should check my teeth when I felt this weird, scratchy sensation on my lower front tooth. With my friend's recommendation, I visited Vivid Dental Surgeons, a dental clinic right beside hipster cafes and opposite Tiong Bahru Market.

Dentist Dr Ryan Yun was a really patient and reassuring doctor as I shared with him that I have a phobia of dentists and pain. He did a thorough examination and cleaned my teeth for me, and the scratchy tartar buildup was gone. The scaling and polishing treatment was relatively painless, and by the time he was done, I didn't even realise (because I was watching a movie while he did the cleaning for me).

Every now and then, Dr Ryan Yun would make sure that I'm alright, which made me feel very at ease and comfortable with him. He was also worried that I was in pain and helped me to massage my jaw muscles for a bit. Thanks to him, my phobia of dental treatments came to a halt, and my teeth feel really clean and smooth after the treatment :)

In context, he is definitely a friendly dentist that I would recommend to my friends and family.

I have had missing 2 teeth for many years now and I have always wanted to have them on my looks and bite. However, I have extreme dental phobia and I have been through countless dentists in my life without being able to overcome my fear of the surgery. My medical doctor advised me to go to see his dentist, Dr. Gerald Tan from Elite Dental Group for a consultation, because he is well known in Singapore for Dental Implant Surgery and for managing dental anxiety.

I don't have a good first impression because I have to wait almost 30 minutes to meet him because the clinic was crowded. His staff was very apologetic to keep waiting but when i finally saw him, i changed my mind. His honesty and genuine concern about my fear gave me confidence to go ahead with the dental implant surgery under IV sedation. When it was over, I felt almost no pain and the surgery lasted no more than 30 minutes and from then on, I'm happy to say that my fear of the dentist has finally been removed! I would highly recommend Dr. Tan and his team to anyone who needs a good dentist but be prepared to wait!

I did braces with Dr Ooi and he is a great dentist, he is always careful in handling all that is needed for my tooth treatment. A smile always from his face, that bring almost all the fear of many people drag of seeing a dentist away.

I pretty much happy with my teeth straightening through the process, and glad I have lesser teeth problem, Dr Ooi is very cheerful, he always finds out how his patient is when seeing him. I guess not very often would people really stop and check how one is especially when one lives in a very busy country.

I did normal teeth cleaning with Dr Ooi and yes, experience is pleasant. I will gag very easily but Dr Ooi knows how to minimise that as he goes about his work.

He is not just transactional but very concerned as well also.

I've been going to Dr. Tan for several years and I appreciate his high degree of proficiency and welcoming attitude. Moreover, I've been grateful that Dr. Tan has taken the time to explain various treatments to me and hasn't tried to oversell me on any uneccessary work. I was at risk of losing a tooth, but thanks to Dr. Tan's care and competency, we were able to save it and the procedure went smoothly.

An Invisalign miracle happened on me here. I have visited numerous dentists prior to selecting Orchard Scotts Dental Dr Ronnie Yap. The previous dentists I consulted all suggested extraction of teeth as I had a serious overcrowding issue. It didn't make any sense to me that I have to remove healthy teeth. One Dentist even suggested a jaw expansion thingy to be stuck in my mouth for 6months, he said cos my jaw is small hence overcrowding. Absurd!


Dr Ronnie Yap did my Invisalign program without a single tooth extraction. He confidently mentioned to me that if I were to extract teeth out, I would have a "collapsed smile" and that wouldn't be nice at all. I am now 10 months into my aligner program and my teeth have shifted so much and becoming so much straighter that I couldn't believe my eyes. Dr Yap is a saviour to great smiles. I am very satisfied with "yet to even complete" Invisalign journey and am enjoying every change of aligner (weekly), cos I know I'm one step away from dream smile. :D

Dr Sham and Dr Co are the best dentists I have met. I had my wisdom teeth extraction with Dr Co and the surgery went really smooth. His many years of experience meant that he was in total control of the surgery. Equally important, he made sure that I was comfortable and alright the entire duration. 2 weeks later, I started to see Dr Sham to put on braces.

Every treatment was comfortable and cheerful. She gave me answers to all I wanted to know about braces before and during the treatment. She engages you with conversation and before you know it, the monthly adjustments are done. She is ever so encouraging and there you know you are good hands. Now I am completely satisfied with my new smile and it gives me great confidence. You will never go wrong with Your services at TLC dental. Thank you Dr Co and Dr Sham!

Kudos to Dr Gerald Tan and team. My daughter was recently involved in an e-scooter accident in Pasir Ris and her front tooth fall off from the incident. Also she had 3 stitches to her gum and also one of the other tooth may be dead. I was introduced to Dr Gerald Tan by a friend.

We made an appointment to see Dr Gerald Tan. Prior to meeting Dr Gerald Tan, my daughter was unable to see herself in the mirror as she was ashamed of her face after the accident. Thank God, we managed to find the missing tooth at the place of accident and Dr Gerald Tan and team was able to place back the tooth that fall off, albeit just a temporary measure.

It was a successful dental procedure and what matter most, Dr Gerald Tan brought back the missing smile back to my daughter. Only God knows how I felt when he completed the procedure. My daughter was able to see her face again in the mirror and that is the best present i ever had in my life, her beautiful smile again. Thank you Dr Gerald Tan. May God Bless you.

We are patients of TLC Dental for many years. Both Dr Sham, Dr Co and their team are great people. Hubby and myself had to go through wisdom teeth surgeries a while ago, and it hasn't been easy psycho-ing ourselves to move ahead for the surgery. But it was the professionalism from the TLC team had made the whole process so relaxed and comforting, which gave us a total different perspective to visiting the dentist.

Now that my son and I are ready to have our braces, we naturally approached Dr Sham for consultation. Dr Sham went into great lengths to explain to us the whole process, what we will expect before and after with 3d visuals, and gave us a lot of confidence on what we are walking into. Almost 6mths into the invisalign journey now, and I must say all the follow-ups visits and phone calls were excellent, especially with Dr Sham and her teams' constant monitoring of our teeth's cleanliness and alignment, and not forgetting her positive encouragements. These gestures definitely made us feel at ease and taken care of.

Dr Gerald Tan has been my dentist from the time he started his private practice - Elite Dental Group. He came highly recommended to me and I have since had multiple dental treatments, almost all under the skilful hands of Dr Gerald. Unbeknownst to me, I had been wearing dental bridge, comprising four incisors (done at another dental practice four years earlier) that was structurally unstable. In my first consultation with Dr Gerald, he cautioned that the bridge could collapse at any time as it lacked support of dental implants.

Dr Gerald patiently explained the entire mechanism of dental implant which essentially guarantees stability and durability. The procedure indeed sounded daunting. It involved cutting the gum, drilling holes into the bone, screwing the titanium posts into the holes, and suturing. I was left with a decision - to have it replaced, or to carry on wearing till it collapsed. I needed little convincing that the best option was to have a new stable one made, sooner rather than later. So began my journey on a quest for beautiful teeth. The first of several procedures was to get fitted with braces to correct my poor bite. 9 months later when the braces came off, bone grafting was performed to bump up the volume of bone. This took another several months. Following the success of the bone graft, dental implant surgery followed.

With two procedures out of the way, and while I was quietly excited in coming close to getting beautiful teeth, I must admit I was overwhelming nervous at the impending surgery. As it turned out, the only pain inflicted was from the injections of the anaesthesia. Though the process lasted more than 2 hours, under the skilful hands of Dr Gerald, at no time did I experience pain or discomfort. The downside of being on local anaesthesia was that I was fully conscious and could hear and feel the sound and vibration of the drill and the titanium posts being screwed it. That was just a little unnerving. When the anaesthesia wore off, there was just a mild discomfort which lasted just that night. However, swelling and bruising in the region around the mouth and face were quite severe, but these subsided over days. The final and much anticipated procedure, the crowning glory. The ceramic crowns were finally fitted.

The quality of the material, the shape and size and colour of the crowns were discussed with me prior, but I largely left the decision to Dr Gerald's expertise. Not only do the ceramic crowns look like real teeth, Dr Gerald's decision to give them added length to compensate for my low lip line made a huge difference when I smile and speak. The entire procedure turned out to be much less traumatising as I had anticipated. For anyone who wishes to have dental implant surgery, I hope you would go through the experience I had - painless, comfortable and uneventful. Then, this could only be possible with an experienced and skilful dental surgeon like Dr Gerald Tan who is a master of his craft. I admire Dr Gerald's professionalism and sincerity. He is easy to talk to and was genuinely interested in listening to my dental issues, and involved me in discussing the treatment plans he had for me. He allowed me a say in how I wanted the desired result to be and did not undermine nor override my input but patiently explained his professional view point. Dr Gerald takes pride in his work, and values his relationship with his patients. During the dental implant surgery, he would periodically enquired if I was doing ok. Post surgery, he would personally text to enquire the status of my recovery. I appreciated that he cared to follow up. Dr Gerald Tan is a dental surgeon whose skills and professionalism have been tried, tested and exceeded beyond expectation. I have come to trust and believe in him. I admire his well trained staff members who are warm and friendly. Dr Gerald checked all the boxes!

I had problems with my wisdom teeth.

I'm from Jakarta and I approached Dr Tan with my wisdom teeth swollen. In Jakarta the doctor there gave me medicine to reduce the swelling. After the swelling has subsided, he will then proceed to extract the teeth. However, it would be a living nightmare for me as I would have to wait for more than an hour.

I flew to Singapore to meet Doctor Moty Vaswani and he recommended me to see Dr Tan. Dr Tan extracted my teeth over a few days using anaesthesia and I experienced no pain at all. The whole process only took 5 - 10 minutes. I could eat after 4 hours! Best experience I ever had for teeth extraction!

I brought my mum to see Dr Gerald Tan on the advice from my Family doctor, Dr Moti Vaswani. He highly recommended him as a skilful dentist in dental implants.

My mum has been suffering from malnutrition and a whole host of medical conditions like Diabetes and she cannot get the nutrition that her body needs because she is missing so many teeth and she cannot chew and enjoy her food.

Because of this, my mum has shrunk in size over the years and finally our family decided to fund her to get dental implants done so that she can chew and enjoy food again and hopefully regain her strength and weight.

Dr Gerald was very reassuring and patient with my mum and he even went the extra mile to call Dr Moti to find out from him in detail, about my mum's long list of medication and all of her medical conditions because he wanted to be sure that he could do the implant surgery for her safely . He was not pushy and explained in easy to understand terms to all of our family members about the benefits and risks of the surgery.

Although my mum was quite frail, Dr Tan's team of anaesthetists gave us reassurance that we could do the implant surgery for my mum safely just as long as her Diabetes is under good control. The surgery was over in 1 hr instead of the projected 2 hours, and when my mum woke up she didnt feel any pain at all! This was about 3 months ago and we recently went back to Dr Tan for a review, and my mum is so happy with her new teeth and has gained 3 kg!

Thank you Dr Tan and your wonderful team! Highly recommended to anyone who needs dental implants.

My teeth are almost perfect now thanks to Dr. Lee! She is a fantastic doctor whom I highly recommend to anyone looking for an orthodontist. I had an overbite which has been corrected effectively and efficiently with braces thanks to her careful planning and recommendations.

I'm glad I left it in her good hands as Dr. Lee is one of the top known specialists in the field locally. Her professionalism is balanced with a warm, sunny personality that puts anyone at ease.

Today i had a really outstanding experience with Dr Gerald Tan from Elite Dental Group. I came in with so much anxiety, but walked out with a changed perception of Dentistry.

I have been missing teeth for many years and dreading the day when i have no choice but to face reality and to go for dental implant surgery. That day finally came when i realised that i could no longer bite and my other teeth was very worn down.

I went to see Dr Gerald Tan under the advice of other doctor colleagues ( i am staff at KK hospital ), because i didn't know which dentist to go to. Dr Tan's name came up several times during my conversations with them so i decided to give him a try. The clinic staff at Elite Dental were very friendly and very approachable.

The clinic is very nice and cosy and centrally located at somerset. When you are in the clinic there is nice piped in music to listen to and loads of amenities to keep you busy while you are waiting for the Doctor.

I was seen 10 minutes late but when Dr tan finally greeted me, to my surprise he spent a good 30 mins talking to me and tried to understand why i was so fearful of the dentist. This put me immediately at ease and for once i felt respected and cared for, my experience was totally different from the other dentists I've been to.

I felt that he cared more about me as a person rather than be so fixated about fixing my tooth issues which i was avoiding for so many years. After a thorough and detailed explanation with X-rays, pictures, drawings and 3D animations, i felt comfortable to go ahead with the implant surgery at a very reasonable price.

Dr Tan was very patient with me even though i had a million questions to ask due to my anxiety. The Surgery was quick, painless and over in less than 30 minutes! And i could not have been happier! I would highly recommend Elite Dental to any of my colleagues in KK hospital but at the same time I'm also hoping i don't have to go for surgery again!!

Dr Gerald is friendly, knowledgable, passionate about the various dental care, dental treatments, teeth maintenance and much more.

He will do his utmost best to maintain your tooth, and to recommend the necessary advice as in my case where a crack tooth (upper left jaw) was observed during the recent cleaning. He advised the potential hazards/risk if I did not address it in both the short and long term.

There was no pressure to fix immediately, but rather that I should take note of the potential hazard if no actions were taken - in short, it is in the patient's own time own target to get his/her tooth fix.

There were 3 parts to my treatment and right after the very first part of treatment the pain was relieved very quickly. I could get back to normal duties with my work and family. This built my confidence with Dr. Jaclyn from then on.

I've also seen many different dentists prior to her but Dr. Jaclyn's interest & care on my overall dental health was most holistic.

Do not be fooled by the old and rather shabby exterior. The dentist, Dr Jonathan Tong, has many years of experience under his belt and is very skilled in his field. While the place may look pretty run down outside, his equipment in the clinic is well-maintained and modern.

I had my wisdom tooth extracted there and while I was told that the local anesthetic injection was the most painful part of the procedure, it was hardly uncomfortable when I had the injection. The dentist made me feel at ease as he carried out the extraction, talking to me throughout the whole time. He's charges are also pretty reasonable. Overall, I would say that the dental service offered here is value for money. Nothing posh, but you get the treatment you require for a good price

No doubt the Dentist is very skilful and experienced. Granted they saved me once by attending to me immediately when I had a broken molar. But $450 for molar extraction? That’s like a wisdom tooth work.

Booked another appointment for routine fillings, scaling and polishing since I was already there for tooth extraction.

I expected the cost to be in the ballpark of, the most, $200 based on past similar services.But WOW! $430?!! $90 each for 3 tooth fillings? $90 for scaling and polishing? $40 for fluoride application? My jaws, though tired from opening for all the dental work, still find the last ounce of energy to fall wide open again, shocked at the charges.

The godsend dentist here to help us civilians.
I woke up in the middle of the night at 1am with wisdom toothache bad until can't get to sleep. My cheek so swollen from the toothache. Unbelievable that the dentist still around when I reached around 2am. I extracted 1 wisdom tooth and the tooth in front $50/- each x 2 which he said was crooked growth and also loose already.
He and his wife still around when I left 4am+++
Not recommended for people who cannot withstand pain but if really can't bear tell him he'll inject more morphine until pain stops. Some people also complained he sleeps halfway during procedure.
But really cheap compared to those exorbitant ones out there.

Dr. Ang and his team of nurses are professional and very friendly. While most dentists these days are “profit maximizing”, Dr. Ang had chosen to forego expensive invasive surgery and opt for conservative procedures to allow me to achieve my straight teeth alignment.

Both his nurses are friendly and always very prompt in replying my enquires and accommodating in my change of schedule.

My overall experience with Just Braces has been great! I totally recommend Just Braces to anyone who requires orthodontist expertise.

Also Dr Tay really knew her stuff – after the entire cleaning and scaling she sat me down and told me how to brush my teeth (apparently, I’ve only been brushing the outside, which she hit right on the spot, because I’m superficial and I’ve been neglecting the insides of my teeth). The whole time she used this teeth model as well as a couple of toothbrushes to explain the rationale behind certain brush strokes as well as which toothbrushes don’t reach certain areas and which do and the importance of flossing.

Straits Dental was recommended by a friend whose entire company goes to for their dental needs. I made an appointment with Dr Jeremy Cheah, who is really good at his work and recommends only what he thinks is necessary.

In fact, patients even request for caps if they belong in the latter category

Super horrible experience. Waited one hour even though I had an appointment. Dr Jacqueline kept talking to her assistant throughout the treatment. At one point the tool was drilling against my teeth but she was looking at her assistant talking. Didn’t even asked if I’m alright during scaling and polishing process and just continue drilling. After everything was done, commented the pain I experienced is because of bad oral hygiene and have gum disease

Went down to Liverpool dental care for the first time and had a scaling and polishing session with Dr Jacqueline. I must say that I am impressed at how skillfully Dr Jacqueline is. I did not feel any discomfort or pain during the session. Under the hands of Dr Jacqueline, I know my teeth are being well-taken care. Beside the scaling and polishing session, Dr Jacqueline was very approachable and knowledgeable. She helped me understand the condition of my teeth and how to further take care of it.

Apart from the excellent dental experience, the staff were very friendly and helped to facilitate the entire process (making an appointment, registering and seeing the dentist).

All in all, I would strongly recommend Liverpool dental care to anyone who is looking for an amazing dentist and place to get their teeth cleaned!

Bought my 3.5 year old son here for his very first dental visit. My wife and I were initially worried about how he would react/behave, but Dr Neo's manner was amazing. She was super friendly and explained all the tools to my son before using them, so he was comfortable with what would go on in his mouth. My son wasn’t worried at all, in fact he was happily watching cartoons during the process.

She was engaging with him (and us) through the entire treatment, and shared a detailed assessment of his dental hygiene and what to look out for in his daily brushing.

Reasonable priced and easily accessible - two thumbs up!

In my opinion, I feel like the doctor has really bad time management.

When I had my braces, I needed to go back frequently for adjustments. Throughout those times, some of my appointments were being delayed. The waiting time can vary between 5 minutes to 40 minutes. There was even once the doctor let a patient take up my appointment time. I ended up waiting for an hour just to get a 10 minutes adjustment. Not to mention that i was schooling during that period of time so it was quite inconvenient for me.

Overall, it was quite a bad experience for me. If you're planning to visit this clinic, do be prepared to wait for more than 30 minutes even with an appointment made.

No trouble sleeping on the 1st night. Unlike other private clinics that would recommend all sorts of treatments to generate revenue, Dr Siva actually asked if I would like to be referred to a government dental clinic, so that I can make 100% dental claim to my employer. Dr Siva is quite a nice gentleman with a slight British accent. That probably explains most of the patients are ladies.

I had a great experience with Dr Jaclyn when i had my filling done by her recently. Unbeknownst to me, I had a decay on my front tooth that was clearly visible in the X-rays that she took for me. She then told me that i needed to have a filling done and the reasons for it, which i readily agreed because I didn't want it to progress to something worse. However, I was very anxious when she told me that I needed local anesthesia for the filling and I was actually considering otherwise. She was very patient with me and she empathized, which made me feel more at ease after awhile.

On hindsight I think she did an excellent job calming me, a person really terrified of needles, down haha. The subsequent injection was thankfully really quite painless and I was so relieved, to say the least. She then proceeded with the filling and the process was quick and painless. She always made sure I was comfortable by asking if i was okay from time to time. She also took pictures before, during and after the procedure for me to see.

I literally cannot tell that a filling has been done because it looked so much like my original teeth and it just blends in so well. It goes to show how meticulous she is with her work and how she really has an eye for perfection. Anyone looking for a dentist who is very personable and meticulous, I would highly recommend Dr Jaclyn !!

Dr. Toh is very patient and professional when explaining any dental treatments to me. I went through a crown treatment with her and I felt comfortable and confident leaving my dental health in her care.

Consult Doctor
23 Dec 2017

Dr Jaclyn Toh is a perfectionist which is a quality that you would want in a dentist. I found out that I had tooth decay that required me to be put under local anaesthesia before receiving treatment. I am someone who is insanely afraid of needles and I was dreading having to get the treatment done.

However, Dr Toh's gentle voice made me feel less anxious. She proceeded to take pictures of my cavity, showing and explaining to me what she is going to do. When it was time to get a shot of local anaesthesia, she first rubbed some numbing cream over the gum area before slowly injecting it.

It was a completely painless experience and I am grateful for that. After she finished filling my cavity, she took another photo to show me what my tooth looked like now and to my surprise I couldn't even tell if I had any fillings, which was amazing.

If you want a dentist who you can trust to do a perfect job, I would 100% recommend Dr Jaclyn Toh.

Consult Doctor
17 Apr 2017

Dr Jaclyn Toh is a professional when it comes to attending to her patients. She is always consistent with her actions and follow up accordingly with what she feels is only necessary and nothing else.

As her patient, I have the privilege to have my fillings done by her. I can clearly see the difference between the fillings done in the before and after photos and it shows that Dr Jaclyn is very thorough with her procedures. I highly recommend Dr Jaclyn for any of your Dental needs especially if its a Root Canal Treatment, which is what she specialises in. Thank you Dr Jaclyn!

I'm currently doing my braces under Dr Jaclyn. She has been very informative and detailed about my treatment plan and procedures at every step. I like that she takes the time to explain the process and ensures that I understand what is going on. She also takes photographs at every visit, which is a great way to monitor my progress and compare the changes! Super excited at how well my treatment coming along and even more excited to see the final results :D

Dr Jaclyn also recommended that I opt for an additional treatment called Propel to help move my teeth faster, but it does need some injections to numb my gums. (I hate needles!). But, I did decide to go ahead with it because I can complete my treatment faster (YAYY!), and she has been super gentle and understanding, and the injections aren't that bad! So again, excited to see how it turns out!

今天是配戴隐形牙套的第二个月。 我是在去年圣诞节前开始的。 在此之前,我对隐形牙套毫无概念。当黄奕巧医生拿出一副透明牙套时,我还是半信半疑。现在明白,当时她用仪器测量口腔,就是为了准确地量身定制这副独一无二的牙套给我。她当时做出方案,分阶段改善下齿整齐,上齿突出,以及咬合问题,如此循序渐进地调整。 现在我已用到第五副牙套。戴过四副,我已经有了些小经验,通常新牙套在头两天会不适,接下来不适感会慢慢消失。我也问,为何会越来越没感觉牙套?黄医生解释,这可能是牙齿间松动了。 每次来复诊时,黄医生都会帮我调整牙齿间缝隙,让牙齿能配合牙套方案达到预期目标。她的手轻巧灵活,专业熟练。 的确,我现在已明显看到,下齿整齐度比以前提高,当然,离预期目标还有一段距离。 所以,坚持配戴是效果的重要保证。

ASK DR RYAN YUN: WISDOM TOOTH & SURGICAL EXTRACTIONS

You've probably heard of your friends and family extracting their wisdom tooth. Your dentist might have even recomended this procedure to you at some point. Have you ever wondered why?

For most people, their wisdom teeth tend to erupt at a region where there's a lack of space. These wisdom teeth are often misaligned or angled horizontally. When that happens, they are considered to be impacted. That leads to common symptoms like aching jaws, pain, headache, and swollen gums. 

There are also other reasons why your dentist would recommend removing a tooth for the good of your dental health.

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.
