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.
