The best dental doctor ever! I have been to many Dentist but never had such a caring, kind and considerate doctor!
Did my very first root canal treatment for my upper molar by Dr Leroy McCully after intensive research online and it was the best decision i have ever made. The whole process was very smooth, fast, painless. Dr Leroy make me feel very assured and relaxed while he was doing the treatment. It has been more than half a year and my upper molar has no issue at all. there was no waiting time compared to going to gov. hospital where i may need to wait half year just to do my treatment and may not be by a endodontist like Dr Leroy. Thank you Dr Leroy
My name is Dr Roy Yeo and I am a Singaporean dentist practicing in London. Dr Gerald Tan from Elite Dental Group came highly recommended by a close relative of mine when I said that I was looking around for a top dental surgeon to shadow in an internship. Dr Tan’s professional reputation as being one of the top dentists doing dental implants in Singapore convinced me to apply for the internship. The first impression I had of Elite Dental Group was that it is a very well organized establishment with everybody knowing their place in the practice. Every single staff member was pleasant, from the receptionist to the nurses and the Dental surgeons. This made everyone feel welcomed, be it a patient or a visiting friend. Patients and their family members come in happy and many readily offered their compliments regarding Dr Gerald Tan’s work ethic when I told them I was observing and assisting him in an internship. Perhaps what struck me the most was when young children come in happy and leave even happier. This is really rare when it comes to dental practices because as you can imagine, young patients are usually very fearful of coming to the dentist. This to me speaks volume of how friendly and warm Dr Gerald and his team makes a patient feel, and the confidence that patients have in them. As a Dentist by profession myself, perhaps I can share a little more from the viewpoint of a fellow professional in the dental industry. Cutting Edge Equipment: The equipment that the practice uses are some of the most technologically advanced ones in the market. It is very evident that Dr Gerald Tan makes sure you receive the best when the instruments he uses are the top of the line ones even if they are small and single use. I have been to and worked in several major hospitals around the world and many of the equipment Dr Gerald’s practice uses are even better than some of these hospitals. Equipment and materials are really important in dentistry because they allow the surgeons to be more delicate and precise in their work. Skill of the dentist: Dr Tan is a very meticulous dentist. The attention to detail that he pays and the level of refinement in his work is impeccable. Even a simple filling done on a tooth at a back was made to look as natural as possible. (Usually, teeth at the back aren’t as visible as those at the front when a patient smiles, so you would not be that particular about the color matching of the filling material to your teeth but this was not the case!) The speed at which he was able to accomplish this at was another testament to his abilities. The true test (from a dentist’s point of view) comes when you review the x-rays of the work you’ve done because there is no hiding from x-rays and I must say that the standard of work that Dr Tan produces is really one of the top in the world. (I would say above textbook standards and that it is truly an artform that requires both talent and hard work to achieve. As a dentist, I truly enjoyed watching him work.) Last but not least, I have to touch on Dr Gerald Tan’s view on every individual patient’s treatment plan. Very often, patients and even some dentists may neglect the need for safety, prevention and maintenance phases of treatment because it takes time and it is tedious for both the dentist and the patient. This is not the case here. He really drives home the message that the foundation has to be laid down properly before starting any advanced treatment that the patient wants. Many at times, patients may not understand that you can give them the most beautiful crown or the most stable/expensive implant in the world but only for it to fail because of gum disease or a patient’s existing imbalanced bite will cause the new crown/implant to fail. Dr Gerald Tan makes it a point to identify all these points, and corrects them before committing to any major treatment. This is a hallmark of a dentist that truly cares for you. Personally, If I were ever in need of a dentist to have work done for myself or my family, I will not hesitate to engage Dr Gerald Tan and his team for treatment because in my humble and somewhat long winded opinion, I was awed by the great team Dr Gerald Tan has working alongside him. Highly recommended !

*This review is my honest personal opinion and is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by Dr Gerald Tan/Elite Dental Group Singapore. I was really happy to write this review for them because I honestly feel that many patients ought to experience this level of treatment and hopefully, my review would have one way or another encouraged you to seek treatment from them.
Straightforward dental appointment for scaling and polishing. Got the job done without fuss and issues. Not sure about the full cost as it was covered under my company's insurance policy.
